Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals vs Pune Warriors Live IPL

Live Streaming IPL Cricket 2013

IPL brings major points table suffle every weekend. One we saw on Saturday as Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated Delhi Daredevils to move on third position and push down Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians to fourth and fifth position respectively. But IPL gives fair chance to all the teams isn't it? Mumbai Indians play Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals play Pune Warriors. So they get an opportunity to register wins and strengthen their positions on the points tally.

Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians

The Super Kings continue their dominance the IPL leagues yet another time. They are way above the other teams and have lost just two out of their 11 matches so far. Their first loss this year came against the Mumbai Indians in Chennai. So today's match at the Wankhede Stadium provides them an opportunity to make the count even steven against Mumbai.

Michael Hussey is just few runs behind Chris Gayle to clinch back the Orange Cap. He is in exceptional form and batting line a fresh youngster. He scores well at the top to lay down a good base to the innings. Raina is back in form and it was good to see him scoring a century in last match. The lower middle order is strong in presence of MS Dhoni. Bravo is doing good in terms of bowling as he is leading the wickets tally in the IPL 2013.
Mumbai Indians have done a good job this year to win good matches so far. But they lack consistency. After a good start to the IPL they lost track and again started winning at home. But as they traveled to Hyderabad they gave away an easy win to Hyderabad. So again its a bit of struggle for them and beating CSK is anytime a daunting task. Hopefully the inform players like Rohit Sharma, Karthik, Pollard and Harbhajan can clinch a win here for the team.

Rajasthan Royals vs Pune Warriors

The Royals take on the depleted and woeful Pune Warriors to take one stride towards the play-offs. A win here for Pune won't do them any favour to make it to the play-offs but they can spoil party of Rajasthan Royals by giving them a loss at such an important phase of the IPL 2013.

Rajasthan Royals are doing very well at home and they are favourites for this match. With Dravid the skipper and Rahane in striking form, scoring runs against a weak bowling opposition won't be a problem. Infact someone like Shane Watson would capitalise more to score a big knock. 
For Pune Warriors, Aaron Finch has to be the captain for rest of the matches. He has shown some good application and so has Steve Smith. But the Indian players have disappointed the team so far. Robin Uthappa and Yuvraj Singh don't seem to be in form and hence they haven't done justice to their potential. Will Pune win few matches from here on to spoil parties of the in form teams? Or will Rajasthan Royals win here and move up the points table? Let us wait and watch the IPL 2013 super Sunday!
