Chennai Super Kings hosts Sunrisers Hyderabad - Tight Contest

Chennai vs Hyderabad Live Streaming

IPL Live Streaming 2013 continues online on Youtube as we reach the 34th match of this season. Total 76 matches to be played and as it happens every year, even this year the round robin matches will go till the wire. That is the reason why IPL is so popular. Cricketers from around the world gather and we see a flood of sixes and not to forget very smart bowling too!

Chennai Super Kings will face Sunrisers Hyderabad for the first time in IPL history. If we consider this team's old franchise Deccan Chargers, head to head Chennai had a better record. But nothing can be predicted about today's match as these two teams are in equally good form.

The way Chennai's all recent wins have gone till the last over, we can speculate another tight match today. Sunrisers Hyderabad have defied all critics and proved that they are the team to beat. Although there hasn't been anything exceptional from the batting department but the bowling department takes all credit. With world class quick bowler Dale Steyn in the team and good spin bowler Amit Mishra troubling all oppenents, this has to be a better bowling side.

Let us have a look at these team's position in the points table. Chennai Super Kings has played seven matches and won five with a net run rate of  +0.648 whereas Sunrisers Hyderabad have played same number of matches and equal wins. They lag behind in terms of net run rate (-0.104). So a win here for Hyderabad may place them on number two (Chennai is currenly on that position behind Bangalore). But for Chennai taking the first position seems possible if they win with a good margin.

Chennai has a brilliant record at home but this year they lost two out of four home matches. So they would not like to lose another on here and drop down in points tally. But a win here for Sunrisers would be a great boost in confidence. Let us see who of these equally matched teams will have an upper hand.
