Pune Vs Rajasthan and Punjab Vs Deccan - Interesting matches for Rajasthan and Punjab

PWI vs RR Live Streaming - KXIP vs DC Live Streaming

Things are getting tougher for Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab as Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings registered comprehensive wins yesterday against Kolkata and Delhi respectively. The race to reach the play offs intensifies and most of the teams except Deccan Chargers and Pune Warriors battle it out to succeed. 

Delhi has 18 points followed by Kolkata on 17 points. Mumbai now rests on third position with 16 points followed by defending champs Chennai on 15 points. Big factor here is Chennai has played one match more than the other three.

1st Match - Pune Warriors India vs Rajasthan Royals

These are the two teams who got a very good start to the tournament and mid way they lost their winning momentum. They suffered few losses and found themselves in the bottom half of points tally. Rajasthan still managed to bounce back and keep themselves in the race but Pune lost it completely. They have played 14 matches and won just four. So they are completely out of this year's league and they are playing for pride.

If Rajasthan manages to win here they will reach the fifth position with 14 points in 14 matches. If they lose it would be almost impossible for them after this to stay alive in the tournament. Shane Watson, Rahul Dravid, Ajinkya Rahane and Brad Hodge have a lot to do today if their team has to win. 

Pune Warriors India has nothing to lose now. They just need to think of winning this game and the following ones to achieve a good end to a disastrous season. Robin Uthappa, Michael Clarke and Smith need to recover from the Gayle storm they suffered in last match and click here to win.

2nd Match - Kings XI Punjab vs Deccan Chargers Live Streaming

Just like Pune, even Deccan Chargers are out of the race but Kings XI Punjab are still very well alive if they can win their remaining matches. Kings don't have an easy path as they still have to play couple of matches against the table topper Delhi and one against the defending champions Chennai. And they need to win all those to make into the play-offs

Adam Gilchrist is still out due to an injury and David Hussey continues to lead the side. Punjab has recently won more than what they have lost thanks to Shaun Marsh and Mandeep Singh's batting, Azhar Mahmood's all round performances and Piyush Chawla's spin.

Deccan Chargers have been one of the most profilic scoring teams this year but their bowling has let them down so badly that they are languishing down the points tally since the start of IPL 2012. The most impressive batsman for Deccan Chargers has been Cameron White. Dale Steyn has done a good job in bowling department but he is still longing for a good support on the other end.
