Watch MI vs CSK 1st Qualifier Live Streaming - IPL 2015

No surprise that CSK makes it into the top four again. They have done that in every single IPL so far and what a strong team they have! If one has to learn how to win consistently, it has to be learnt from Chennai Super Kings. They finished at the top of points tally and will clash against second rank Mumbai Indians for the 1st Qualifier of IPL 2015 at Wankhede Stadium. Watch MI vs CSK live streaming on HotStar mobile app and Star Sports HD website. Enjoy live TV telecast with Hindi and English commentary on Sony Six and Sony Max channels.

CSK and MI are head to head equally matched teams with 10 wins shared. But Chennai Super Kings might not be considered as favourites here due to their not so good record at the Wankhede Stadium. Plus Mumbai Indians have got a better momentum with lot of wins in the second half of this IPL. CSK enjoyed more wins in the first half of their IPL campaign in 2015.

Two times IPL champions and total four times finalists, CSK had another shot in their arm as their top run getter Brendon McCullum would fly for New Zealand vs England cricket series and would no longer be available to serve CSK for the remainder of the league. Although CSK has got a good replacement in form of Michael Hussey but he hasn't yet found his feet wherease McCullum was well set with 436 runs to his name and a good strike rate too. Hopefully Dwayne Smith takes the onus in absence of Brendon and Hussey can provide him a good support.

In presence of Ashish Nehra, Ishwar Pandey, R Ashwin, Jadeja, Negi and Bravo; the team has restricted the oppositions to modest totals. That has been a key to CSK's success this year. Even after posting a below par total, their bowlers have done a great job to defend the score.

For Mumbai Indians this is a golden opportunity to beat CSK at home and reach the Eden Gardens final! They would enjoy the crowd support and they have played real good cricket at home. The good part is their whole batting line up has found its form at the right time. Lendl Simmons and Parthiv Patel are doing well at the top of the order. Rohit Sharma and Ambati Rayudu are scoring consistently in the middle order whereas Pollard and Harbhajan come in handy with the bat.

Lasith Malinga has found his form too while McClenaghan is proving fatal for the oppositions. Harbhajan, Suchith and Pollard are doing a decent job with the ball to contain the opposition.

Please note the winner of this match will reach the finals while the losing team will meet the winning team of 1st eliminator (RCB vs RR) in the second eliminator. The winner of that match will proceed to the finals at the Eden Garden, Kolkata.
