KKR vs Sunrisers and Rajasthan Royals vs Kings XI Punjab - IPL Super Sunday

IPL 2013 Live Streaming

IPL 2013 live streaming online goes on with one after the other nail biters! Someone who missed the last ball finish of Chennai vs Bengaluru match last night probably missed the whole flavour of the IPL 2013 treat! Never miss even a moment of IPL matches. That costs you a lot of cricketing excitement. Today we gear up for another IPL super Sunday with couple of matches lined up.

Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Sunrisers Hyderabad (1st Match)
Venue - The Eden Gardens, Kolkata

The defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders won their first match at home and are now back home with couple of away defeats. Suddenly it seems as if they have lost the winning track somewhere. They would hope to revive their fortunes as they take on Sunrisers Hyderabad today at the Eden Gardens.

Sunrisers Hyderabad were never the favourites to win the IPL but that makes the whole league easy for them. They are not under the pressure of "favourites" tag. They are sloppy yet consistent with their wins. With the likes of Dale Steyn, Ishant Sharma, Amit Sharma and some low-profile cricketers; this team has surprised all of us with their good work. Currently they stand in top four standings of points table along with Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings.

Kolkata Knight Riders receiving a lot of thrashing from Gayle in their last match. Hopefully they have recovered from that shocking defeat. Sunil Narine will enjoy the conditions at the Eden Gardens and can be termed as the key performer for KKR. On the other hand there is a good news for this team. Brandom McCullum looks completely recovered from his hamstring injury and he might play if the team decides to shuffle the line up a bit.

Rajasthan Royals vs Kings XI Punjab (2nd Match)
Venue - Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur

Two teams that are not in the top four at this moment in the points tally but not to far as well - Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab. These two teams haven't been disappointing at all. Its just that couple of wins for them would place them in top four of the points table.

Royal is a word connected to Kings. So indirectly we have a Royal team from Jaipur facing off against Kings from Punjab. Let us hope we get a Royal treat of Cricket tonight at Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.

Rahul Dravid who might be playing his last IPL has led RR from front. With two half centuries, he has set an example for his team. Ajinkya Rahane has been impressive with his three 30 plus scores. All he needs is to built up those starts to a big score for his team. Watson, Perera, Faulkner, Cooper and Binny provide a great amount of flexibility to the batting line up. The bowling line up looks a concern for the Royals and Dravid has to look into this if the team has to consistently win.

Punjab has played just two matches so far with contrasting results. The first one brought them a big 8 wickets win over Pune Warriors meanwhile the second was a 10 wicket loss against the 'whistle podu' Chennai Super Kings. They have a good swing component in their bowling line up with Harris, Awana and Praveen Kumar. Piyush Chawla can trouble the batsmen with his googlies. All this team needs is some good batting performances from Gilchrist, David Hussey, Mandeep Singh, Azhar Mahmood, etc.
