Watch CSK vs RCB 2nd Qualifier Live Streaming - IPL 2015

Chennai Super Kings are pitted against in form Royal Challengers Bangalore in the second qualifier of IPL 2015. We need to wait and watch will it be Dhoni who would clinch a win in his own den 'Ranchi' or will it be young Virat who would take his team to their dream final!

Chennai Super Kings finished at the top of points table. But somewhere they had lost the momentum in second half of the league. They managed just three wins out of their last eight matches. When they were pitted against Mumbai Indians in the first qualifier, they didn't look at their best. MS Dhoni and his team are used to playing under crunch situations. They know how to win from here on. They have no other option but to put up a fight, win and meet Mumbai Indians in the finals at Eden Gardens.

Royal Challengers Bangalore have won six out of their last eight matches. They were about to finish in top two but a rain affected match let them finish third. Hence they had to play an extra match in the form of an eliminator against Rajasthan Royals. They played their heart out and won like champions. They defeated RR by 71 runs which is a big margin in any form of cricket. They are just one match away from the finals and two wins away from their first ever IPL title.

On paper RCB looks strong, also due to their current form they have an upper hand. It is unusual that CSK isn't termed as favourites since last two matches even though they were top gainers in the points tally. This is simply because they haven't been consistently winning lately. They also miss the services of Brendon McCullum who gave them some brave starts. Suresh Raina doesn't look at his prime and MS Dhoni looks rusty. Bowlers are doing good in patches but they need to restrict the opposition in last few overs.

Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers are the back bone of RCB line up. If CSK bowlers manage to send them back cheaply, CSK would have a win in sight. It would be an interesting battle between R Ashwin, Dwayne Bravo vs Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers. It would also be interesting to see which left handed pacer (Starc or Nehra) will shine today.

Ranchi hasn't been a hunting ground for either of these teams. They have a 50% win record here. Although CSK has been the better side in last two matches against RCB, the momentum seems favouring Kohli's XI.

Update (23rd May 2015) - CSK will meet MI in the finals. Enjoy the final match live streaming on HotStar mobile app. Soon you can also enjoy India vs Bangladesh 2015 live streaming on Star Sports and HotStar.
