Mumbai Indians face Kings XI Punjab and Chennai takes on Bangalore today

IPL Live Streaming Cricket 2013

Sit back and relax! Stage is set for one of the most important IPL weekend where we would come to know which teams will be into the play-offs. Cricket plagues by spot fixing saga is certainly unfortunate for the great game we all love. But the soul of cricket is still alive because few such players can't kill the game. Keep loving the game. Now time to preview today's IPL matches.

Kings XI Punjab vs Mumbai Indians

Welcome to the picturesque Dharamsala. Cricket returns to the beautiful landscape surrounded by mountains. Nothing gets better than this! Kings XI Punjab who are probably out of the tournament takes on table toppers Mumbai Indians today.

Mumbai Indians would love to win this one and continue being on top of the table. Although they are final to be in top two alongwith Chennai, but finishing at the top is always an added advantage. If Mumbai loses today and Chennai wins the later one today, Chennai will finish at the top of points tally. With Pollard, Karthik, Johnson, Sharma and many others in great form; Mumbai Indians are certainly favourites for today's match.

Adam Gilchrist probably plays his last ever professional cricket match today. Kings XI Punjab would love to bid him a farewell by beating the table topper today. So we can expect a good knock from Gilchrist as well as his inform team mates Mandeep Singh, David Miller or David Hussey.

Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bangalore

Chennai Super Kings travels to Bangalore to face the mighty Royal Challengers Bangalore. Whenever these two teams play each other, either we see a very high scoring match or a nail biter. That is for sure! So let us expect something similar today.

We will see two most prolific run scorers of IPL 2013 playing against each other - Chris Gayle and Michael Hussey. Let us see who clinches the orange cap! We can also expect another firing knock from powerful hitters like Dhoni and AB de Villiers. Kohli and Raina are class apart and they can score well with their sound technique. 

Chennai is through to the play-offs and will play Mumbai in the first qualifier. Winner of that match directly reaches the finals. On the other hand Royal Challengers Bangalore has to win this match to stay in race of play offs and then sit back, pray that Hyderabad losses its next match. In that scenario Royal Challengers Bangalore will face Rajasthan Royals in the first eliminator. Other way round if Hyderabad wins their next match, they would knock out Bangalore and enter the play offs.
