Watch IPL 2016 Live Streaming

IPL 2016 has brought in a lot of excitement till now with two teams dominating the scenario. Gujarat Lions and Kolkata Knight Riders. But this is too early to comment anything. There is a long way to go and we have seen in almost all the seasons that one or two teams bounce back really hard to bring a big shuffle in the points table. Several matches to go and a lot of enthrallment still left. Watch IPL 2016 live streaming and score updates on HotStar mobile app. Watch Vivo IPL 9 live telecast on Sony Six, Sony Max and Sony ESPN HD TV channels in India.

Some important matches lined up for next few days:

21st April 2016 - Gujarat Lions vs Sunrisers Hyderabad
22nd April 2016 - Rising Pune Supergiants vs Royal Challengers Bangalore
23rd April 2016 - Delhi Daredevils vs Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kings XI Punjab
24th April 2016 - Gujarat Lions vs Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rising Pune Supergiants vs Kolkata Knight Riders
25th April 2016 - Kings XI Punjab vs Mumbai Indians
26th April 2016 - Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Rising Pune Supergiants
27th April 2016 - Delhi Daredevils vs Gujarat Lions
28th April 2016 - Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders
29th April 2016 - Rising Pune Supergiants vs Gujarat Lions

There is another long list of matches that would continue till 29th May 2016. 

Gujarat Lions have done a good job so far and they would love to continue the winning way. Their only issue could be over dependency on Aaron Finch. There should be a cover in case he fails and someone else clicks. So is the issue with Sunrisers Hyderabad and to an extent with Kolkata Knight Riders. SRH is too relied on Warner and KKR is too reliant on Gautam Gambhir.

Mumbai Indians have seen their ups and downs and they need to win a couple of matches in next few days. Too much of inconsistency may harm them in the long run. Rising Pune Supergiants haven't played too many matches yet. Hard to judge them but they haven't performed to their potential. Dhoni and his men need to win more very soon.

Delhi Daredevils and Kings XI Punjab ended up last year in the bottom half of points tally. They have been consistently under performing. They need to pull up their socks at the earliest before they find themselves almost eliminated.

Royal Challengers Bangalore needs a special mention due to its star studded squad. But somewhere they aren't making it look that way. With the likes of Kohli, Gayle, Watson and AB de Villiers, they are posting big totals. But they are somehow failing to defend those totals. The bowling department needs to play to its potential.

RCB vs MI Match Preview IPL 2016

A big one tonight! A really big one. Hard hitters on a venue that is loved by batsmen. You got it right. Mumbai Indians play at Wankhede Stadium against the mighty Royal Challengers Bangalore. Both these teams have suffered a loss in their last match and they would seek a win tonight in a tough battle. Watch live streaming of this exciting match on HotStar. Enjoy live TV telecast on Sony Six, Sony Max and Sony ESPN HD.

Mumbai will have to give away with Wankhede soon as their home ground matches would be shifted to Jaipur. The reason for this amendment is the drought issues faced in Maharashtra. Well, Rohit Sharma seems to have already hit the panic button. He has criticised the batsmen in his team. Rightly so, they need to step up and perform before its too late for the defending champions to stay alive in this cash rich T20 league.

Royal Challengers Bangalore have won one match and lost the another. They registered a big win over Sunrisers Hyderabad but lost to Delhi Daredevils in the next. Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Watson are in supreme form and Kohli will take a lot of confidence with this. Watson also comes in handy with his exceptional bowling.

Languishing at bottom half of the points tally isn't doing any justice to the Mumbai Indians potential. They can't bounce back every time after losing a many. Rohit Sharma is well aware of this fact and he has appealed for better performance from the batsmen. Even the bowling has been upto the mark. Injuries to the likes of Lasith Malinga and Lendl Simmons has hit the team hard. Even a match winner like Kieron Pollard doesn't look in form.

Last time when these two teams clashed at Wankhede, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers feasted on Mumbai bowlers. Mumbai Indians would be wary of this fact. Wankhede stadium is such a venue where hard hitters would prevail if they time the ball well. And at this moment, RCB batters are in better form. This would be the right match for Mumbai Indians to gain their lost form back and win a confidence boosting match.

The another good part for the spectators would be Virat Kohli vs Rohit Sharma. Two genuinely talented cricketers who play for the country would face each other. Right time for them to show their skills and enjoy the game.

KXIP vs KKR Match Preview

The defending champions Mumbai Indians go through another loss and now they might hit the panic button. Sunrisers Hyderabad registered a comprehensive win over Mumbai Indians to nail their first win in the IPL 2016. Will we see another dramatic bounce back from Mumbai Indians this year? Well, one can't predict anything in cricket. Talking about today's match; Kings XI Punjab face Kolkata Knight Riders at Mohali. Watch live streaming and score of KXIP vs KKR on HotStar. Live telecast will be available on Sony Six, Sony Max and Sony ESPN HD.

Kings XI Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders have had contradicting fortunes so far. KKR has dominated all the matches sans one, while KXIP have lost all sans one. Kolkata Knight Riders posted a good total against Mumbai Indians, but it was Rohit Sharma's day and nothing could stop him from taking his team home. That was they only loss KKR has seen so far. Kings XI Punjab have won their only match against Rising Pune Supergiants. Dhoni's men couldn't post a big total and KXIP loooked comfortable chasing down the target. This must bring some cheer in the Punjab's camp.

Gautam Gambhir is in a supreme form. Typical Gambir! What a way to bat. He has been calm and composed all the way so far. He seems to be a man on mission. He is trying to bat till the end and take his team home. He is the key to Kolkata Knight Rider's win tonight.
For Punjab, Miller or Maxwell has to click. Even Marsh can chip in with a good knock. Maxwell looked disappointing in the first two matches. He found form when he played against Pune Supergiants. KXIP think tank would be relieved to see Manan Vohra in form. One can expect a blistering innings from him at Mohali tonight.

KKR would be proud of the bowling strength too. If they can restrict the batting heavy Punjab side to a below par total, they can view a win. Sunil Narine is back into the playing XI. He is taking his own time to be settled in his remodeled bowling action. Umesh Yadav and Morne Morkel are doing a good job so far for the team.

Head to head, KKR has a huge advantage tonight. 11 wins out of 17 matches. Whom do you think will emerge as victorious tonight? Comments please!

MI vs SRH IPL 2016 Match Preview

IPL that is wide open is loved by all. Good to see teams winning one and then losing one to keep the excitement up for the fans. Yes there might be heart breaks, but it always keeps an interest alive in terms of which four team would move to the next round. Teams like Royal Challengers Bangalore or Rising Pune Supergiants that are extremely strong on paper, aren't equally dominating when they are on field. Apart from Gujarat Lions, all the other teams have atleast tasted one defeat. Today it's time for a big match! Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad at Rajiv Gandhi International stadium. Watch MI vs SRH match live streaming and score on HotStar. Watch live TV telecast on Sony Six, Sony ESPN and Sony Max with live Hindi, English, Tamil, Telugu and Bengali commentary.

Drought affected state of Maharashtra won't host IPL matches. Hence teams like Mumbai Indians and Rising Pune Supergiants had to shift their home matches to some other venue. Given few options by BCCI, Mumbai Indians picked Jaipur as their adopted home ground while RPS opted for Vishakhapatnam.

A similarity between Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad is a search for win. MI has played three matches and lost two. SRH has played two and still looking for a win. Before the pressure mounts, both these teams would love to get back to winning ways. Otherwise, it would be difficult to bounce back and finish in the top four.

Mumbai Indians don't have to search for any motivation as they have an example within themselves. They lost a lot of matches last year and bounced back hard to win a many and the final too. The defending champions would certainly not like to find themselves in the similar situation this year. Hence, they need to start winning matches. The last match against Gujarat Lions went down till the wire. The local boy Dhawal Kulkarni who is now a part of Gujarat Lions clinched two valuable wickets and hit a very important boundary in the last over. Aaron Finch continued his great form and nailed another win for Gujarat Lions.

The form of Kieron Pollard with the bat is a concern for MI. Lasith Malinga is ruled out of the IPL 2016. Lendl Simmons is also out due to injury. Chances are high that Mumbai Indians may play Martin Guptill tonight.

For Sunrisers Hyderbad, form of Shikhar Dhawan is a concern. He has been dismissed with a single digit score so far. This increases the pressure on the likes of David Warner. If these two get going, the opposition can be in trouble. SRH coach Tom Moody is well aware of the areas of concern. He has conveyed to the team on improving on those fronts and it would not be hard to bounce back.

Let us see who emerges as a winner today and climbs up in the points table.

Watch Kings XI Punjab vs Pune and Royal Challengers vs Delhi Daredevils Live Streaming

Gujarat Lions dominating so far! Three matches and three victories. They defeated Mumbai Indians in their own backyard last night. Double header Sunday now - Kings XI Punjab vs Rising Pune Supergiants and Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Delhi Daredevils. Which one would you call match of the day? They both are equally exciting, aren't they? We all would love to witness the tussle between Kings XI Punjab and Dhoni's men Supergiants. While the other match would feature the Gayles and the Kohlis! Watch IPL matches live streaming and score updates on HotStar. Enjoy live telecast with Hindi, English, Telugu, Bengali and Tamil commentary on Sony Six, Max and Sony ESPN HD TV network in India.

Kings XI Punjab vs Rising Pune Supergiants

The live action would begin at 4pm today. The Kings XI Punjab are writing the same story. They finished in the bottom half of points tally last year. They haven't got a good start this year too. They need to clinch wins before its too late. IPL is a long tournament, so some early losses won't eliminate you. But a stitch in time saves nine! And today's is a good opportunity for the Punjab team to win at the home ground. But yes, to beat Dhoni's team is never easy. Be it CSK, team India or Rising Pune Supergiants. You need to have a good strategy in place and of course some luck in your favor. 

Pune Supergiants won their first match against Mumbai but lost the second one to Gujarat Lions. Nothing to be disappointed though because first win was comprehensive, while the second match brought good runs for Pune. Just some great tight bowling in the last five overs from Gujarat, restricted Pune to a slighly below par total which they couldn't defend. Pune would certainly try to nail a win today and be in top three of points tally.

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Delhi Daredevils

RCB has played one game (against Sunrisers Hyderabad at Bengaluru) and they provided a housefull entertainer. Although Gayle went back cheaply, Kohli and AB de Villiers hammered the bowling and steered the scoreboard to 227 for 4. SRH batted well but could manage 182 and fell short by 45 runs which is a big margin by any sense in a t20 match. RCB stands tall on third position in the points tally. But this is too early to say anything. A loss today can take them in the bottom half. The venue being Chinnaswamy, a hunting ground for RCB; Delhi's dominance looks far fetched. 

Delhi currently resides on fifth position in the points tally just below Pune Supergiants. They had a dismal loss against KKR in the first match where the batsmen failed miserably. KKR nailed a 9 wickets win over DD. The second match for Daredevils brought in a lot of joy and confidence. Playing against Kings XI Punjab, Delhi bowled well to restrict Punjab to 111 for 9. Amit Mishra bagged four wickets giving away just 11 runs and won Man of the Match award. He also became the highest wicket taker from India in the IPL history. He might not enjoy the venue which doesn't serve the spin friendliness that he got at the Feroz Shah Kotla. 

Two big matches, batting friendly wickets, loads of runs and what else do you expect on a Sunday IPL double header? Enjoy!
