Kolkata vs Chennai and Rajasthan vs Bangalore Live Streaming

IPL Live Streaming Cricket 2013

IPL Live Streaming 2013 continues online as we see one after the other cliff hangers! Two huge sixes by Perera in the penultimate over against Kings XI Punjab gave Sunrisers another win and thus they clinch the top position in points tally from Rajasthan. But these changes are temporary as another win for Rajasthan today may take them to the apex again.

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Chennai Super Kings at the Eden Gardens

First match today features two heavyweights Kolkata and Chennai. The defending champions are languishing in the bottom half of points tally and striving hard to find winning ways. They have been good in patches to win some of the matches but they overall need to win more than lose. They need to perform like defending champions and the team to beat.

Good thing for KKR is they have won both their home fixtures this year and today is again a home match for them. But beating CSK anywhere isn't a walk in the park. CSK lost to Pune recently and to recover from that shock they came out with all guns blazing against Delhi Daredevils to register an emphatic win. That win was so huge that it improved their Net run rate by a huge margin and they toppled Mumbai Indians to take fourth spot in the rankings.
The captains would play a vital role today
Gautam Gambir is the key batsman for KKR as he has consistently scored runs this season. Similar to this case, MS Dhoni plays a very vital role for CSK. It has been observed that CSK has started they innings with a very slow net run rate and they try to accelerate in death overs. This strategy has worked against them in their two losses so far - one against Mumbai and one against Pune. Here MS Dhoni can play a very important role if he comes up the order. He did the same against Delhi and scored quickfire knock.

Rajasthan Royals vs Royal Challengers Bangalore at Bangalore

76 matches in all for this year's IPL and we are now into match number 27th - Rajasthan takes on the Royal Challengers. This match promises competitive cricket! Both these teams have displayed brilliant cricket and hence produced entertaining matches in IPL 2013. 

Both these teams have won four matches each but RCB has played one game more than RR. Either of these teams can move to the top spot of points table if they can win here. Although RCB would start at favourites to win at home, but we all know what is the calibre of the opponents Rajasthan Royals!
Rahul Dravid would be aiming for the number one spot in points table
Chris Gayle, Kohli and AB de Villiers have been star performers for RCB and they need to click today also if their team has to win. On the other hand, Rahul Dravid and Ajinkya Rahane has proved that T20 is not all about sixes, it is also about pure technique. 

As far as the head to head stats of these two teams is concerned, RCB leads the count 5-4 whereas one match in 2011 was abandoned due to rain. Can Rajasthan Royals prove their mettle and beat RCB in Bangalore? Or will it be a straight win for RCB? Let us wait and watch!
