Bangalore vs Pune and Delhi vs Punjab - IPL 2013 Live Streaming

IPL Live Streaming Cricket

A big chase by Kings XI Punjab against Pune Warriors was followed by a very similar chase by Chennai Super Kings against Chennai Super Kings. Time for a double header today as Royal Challengers Bangalore face Pune Warriors India and later Delhi Daredevils face Kings XI Punjab.

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Pune Warriors India

It is a real concern for Pune Warriors now because they posted such a huge total against Kings XI but couldn't defend it. There nothing more a batting line up can do beyond that. Pune has won two and lost five matches. And now they have a daunting task ahead of facing the heavyweights Royal Challengers Bangalore at Bengaluru.

RCB will start as favourites not only because of their home condition benefit but also due to their overall form in this year's IPL. They are still in the top four teams with CSK, RR and Hyderabad. Above all they won their last two matches against Delhi and Rajasthan.

Pune Warriors have never won a match against Royal Challengers Bangalore. In a head to head count of three matches, Bangalore has won all three. Another stat that goes in favour of Bangalore is that they have played five matches at home and not lost a single one this year. So let us see if it becomes a one sided contest or do we see some good resistance from Pune Warriors.

Delhi Daredevils vs Kings XI Punjab

Delhi after losing six matches on the trot showcased a spirited performance on Sunday as they chased a big total against Mumbai comfortably. The biggest boost for the team's confidence came with Sehwag's brave knock that guided them through to their first win. They also saw Jayawardene in good form.

Question is will the out of sort Delhi team be able to capitalise on that brilliant win against Mumbai and continue winning or will they lose track again and languish at the bottom of points table. Kings XI Punjab have pulled out a spirited win against Pune in their last match where David Miller and Manpreet Singh won an unbelievable match.

On one hand we have a team that is strong on paper but has completely underperformend (Delhi) and on the other hand we have Punjab that has been inconsistently well. So this is a tight contest and the one who plays better is going to win. No previous wins or losses may matter here because both these teams have got a good win in their last match and all they need is to capitalise on that win.
