Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Daredevils and Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders Live

RR vs DD and MI vs KKR Live Streaming

Two matches with similar stories - One team each in both the matches are in race of play-offs and the other team is almost out of contention. Every win or loss would count now. Teams that are in the race of play-offs can't afford to lose anymore meanwhile teams that are already disqualified might spoil other's parties!

Match 1 - Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Daredevils at Jaipur

Rajasthan Royals is marching up the ladder and has posted a strong message that they are good enough to make it to the play-offs. They are in close contest with RCB, MI and SRH. CSK already looks qualified and for formalities one more win can seal their berth. While chasing a big total against Pune Warriors, Rajasthan looked comfortable. Rahul Dravid came with a surprise package where he scored a lot of runs straight down the pitch. Rahane looked good as usual.
Leading from the front - RR captain Rahul Dravid
The good part about the remaining campaign of Rajasthan Royals is they will play more teams that are below the order of current points tally. So if Rajasthan doesn't qualify from hereon, they have to blame themselves for that. 

Delhi Daredevils are out of the league now. A lot of hopes were served if they can create some magic and interest in last few matches. But they crashed on a small total of 80 runs against Hyderabad. The whole batting line up has disappointed this year except Warner who has 352 runs to his name.

Match 2 - Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders at Mumbai

After a stunning victory over the team to beat CSK, Mumbai Indians now take on the fancied Kolkata Knight Riders at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. MI enjoys the home conditions to the optimum and its hard to beat them at Wankhede.

Kolkata Knight Riders have slimmest of chances for play-offs berth as they have to win all their remaining matches. The rough form of Gautam Gambhir is now a worry for the team. Bisla has been in good form but is it too late for the team's good? Kallis and McCullum couldn't impress at all this year. KKR is in a do or die situation and hence all the players need to click if they have to beat the strong Mumbai team at home.
Gambhir and his team has to win all the remaining matches from here on
Malinga's fear has disappeared this year but Johnson has provided early breakthroughs while bowling. Dhawal Kulkarni is impressive and lately even Harbhajan has clinched good number of wickets. In batting, Smith has handled the opener's role very well. Sachin Tendulkar has failed to impress this year. The strong middle order has helped the team win matches especially due to contributions from Dinesh Karthik and Rohit Sharma.
