KKR vs Pune Warriors and Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals Live Streaming

KKR vs PWI and MI vs RR Live Streaming

Chennai Super Kings once again reaches the final stages of the IPL and yet again proves to be the most consistent team ever in the IPL. Now let us see which are the other teams that would reach top four or rather now concentrate or reaching the top two positions.

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Pune Warriors

Kolkata Knight Riders seem to have found form but its too late for them. Mathematically they can still enter the play-offs but only if some miraculous permutation and combination of other teams' performance works in their favour. Otherwise their entry to the top four looks impossible.

Kolkata can certainly play the role of spoiling parties for other teams. KKR defeated in the race RCB and made their life tougher. Following that loss RCB again lost to Kings XI yesterday and now their chances to reach play-offs are diminishing. 

On the other hand we have Pune Warriors who are languishing at the bottom of points table. This team is winless in this IPL since a month now and this shows their woeful form. Nothing has fallen in place for them. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar has been economical but others have leaked runs and have been wayward. Batting wise this was a disappointing year for the Pune Warriors.

Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals

This is a match of equals where both the teams have been neck to neck in terms of play-offs race. Mumbai is placed on second and Rajasthan Royals is placed on third position - equal in points but narrowly separated by net run rate. Both the teams would strive hard to win here and probably move at the top of points tally replacing Chennai.

Watson is the trump card for Rajasthan Royals and he has clicked on time when others failed. He can turn any tough match in the team's favour either with is bowling or batting. He has scored a lot of runs this year and he has been brilliant in patches. Rahul Dravid and Ajinkya Rahane are ever consistent with the bat and Faulkner-Cooper are ever consistent with the ball.

Mumbai Indians are in good form with a lot of wins in recent times. The last win came against Hyderabad when Pollard came from nowhere and took team home with a good win. We would expect a similar such feat from Pollard again. Johnson had an off day against Hyderabad as he leaked a lot of runs. But he is the most successful Mumbai Indian bowler this year. Harbhajan and Ojha have handled the spin department pretty effectively.
