Kings XI Punjab vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Live Streaming

IPL Live Streaming 2013

Kings XI Punjab host a match against the mighty Royal Challengers Bangalore. The home team Punjab have had a lot of close encounters. They have lost some tight finishes and they can blame only themselves. Beating Royal Challengers Bangalore is a daunting task but the home advantage can take Punjab through with a win here.

Teams generally win a lot at home compared to the away matches. Punjab has played ten matches so far and won just four. But they are still very much in the contention of making it to the play-offs. Surprisingly out of those ten matches, they have played just three matches at home. So they still have five matches to be played at home and one away. Five wins out of these six matches can take Punjab into the play-offs depending on the Net run rate scenario at that juncture.
The young batsmen Mandeep Singh has been highly impressive and so has been David Miller. Gilchrist sits out with woeful form and gives way to David Hussey to handle the captaincy. Hussey isn't consistent and once he clicks, it is going to be hard for the opposition to beat Punjab. Shaun Marsh has entered the playing XI lately and scored well for the team. Bowling wise the team does well with Piyush Chawla, Azhar Mahmood, Praveen Kumar, etc.

On the other hand Royal Challengers Bangalore are a hard team to beat. They are on second rank in the points table and two wins away from a berth in the play-offs. The mighty Gayle may enjoy the pitch here at Mohali which isn't too different from the Bangalore's pitch. Although Punjab bowlers would be wary of Gayle storm, they also would be ready with some plan to bowl him out cheaply.
Virat Kohli who was in blistering form in the first few matches seems to be out of form. But he is still timing the ball pretty well. He needs to build his starts to a bigger knock. AB de Villiers is doing very well and contributing to the team wins. Vinay Kumar has clinched 18 wickets and is just two behind Bravo for the Purple cap. Henriques, Karthik, Rampaul, Unadkat and RP Singh ca provide a good support in the bowling department.

This would be an evenly fought match where the team with a better bowling performance will pull out a win. Stay tuned for more IPL live streaming 2013 match previews and reviews.
