Kings XI Punjab face Delhi Daredevils in a do or die match

Kings XI vs Delhi Daredevils Live Streaming

IPL Live streaming 2013 online continues as we are almost into the final stages of the round robin stage. Three teams viz. Mumbai Indians, Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals are already through to the play-offs. It is not yet decided which two teams will end up on top two positions and follow an easier path towards the finals. The another important thing that still keeps the interest alive in the round robin stage is the fourth team that will make it to the play-offs. It could be Bangalore or it could be Hyderabad or it can also be Punjab.

Punjab would be relieved to see their captain Adam Gilchrist back in form. He scored 85 runs not out against mighty Royal Challengers Bangalore and clinched a win for his team. That worsened the position of Bangalore as they could face a knock out. David Miller will always be remembered for his 38 balls century and he may click again for Punjab against Delhi. On the other hand even Shaun Marsh and Mandeep Singh are in good form.
Bowling wise Punjab has a descent bowling line up. Piyush Chawla does a good job with his leg spins. Azhar Mahmood is playing an all rounder's role but this year he didn't click too much with the bat. Praveen Kumar does a good job with his medium pace swinging deliveries. He also comes in handy with the bat at crunch times.

On the other hand, Delhi Daredevils has managed to win a very few matches out of the 14 played so far. They need to try and win both the remaining games to regain some pride. Delhi was the team to beat last year in presence of in form Sehwag, Pietersen, Morne Morkel, etc. This year the team looked depleted right from the start. Sehwag is in dismal form. Jayawardene has only been good in patches. Morne Morkel hasn't got the same rhythm and outcome in bowling that he had last year. Pietersen and Ryder could have played a vital role but they couldn't join the team this year. David Warner has batted well throughout the IPL 2013 for Delhi Daredevils.

Can we expect another big win for Kings XI Punjab that keeps the race to play-off more interesting or will Delhi win this one to completely knock out Punjab from the contention of play offs? Let us wait and watch.
