Cricket fans can watch the biggest match of the IPL 2015 season live online, as Chennai Super Kings face the Rajasthan Royals in a battle of table-topping, undefeated sides that could turn out to be a preview of the Indian Premier League Final.
To watch streaming video of the the 3-0 Chennai Super Kings vs. Rajasthan Royals, who come in at 4-0, live online from Sarder Patel Stadium in Motera, Ahmedabad, see the information below.
Skippered by revered India Captain M.S. Dhoni, the Super Kings dominated the hapless Mumbai Indians on Friday, needing just 16.4 overs to pass Mumbai’s 183 total with six wickets in hand.
The Chennai opening partnership of Brendon McCullum and Dwayne Smith blew away Mumbai’s bowlers with 107 runs in the first seven overs alone, and the Super Kings coasted to an easy victory the rest of the way.
“They are a very dangerous side. They are not only strong at the top of the order, they’ve got some very good players throughout the whole order,” Rajasthan and New Zealand right-arm medium-fast bowler Tim Southee said, looking ahead to the crucial match. “They’ll be dangerous and we’ll have to be at the top of our game to minimize and take as many wickets as we can to slow them down during the back end of the innings.”
While Chennai are slightly favored in the April 19 showdown, the lack of a single, dominant bowler has been the closest thing to a weakness the Super Kings have displayed in their first three games.
Led by stand-in Captain Steve Smith, who hasn’t skipped a beat filling in for the injured Shane Watson, the Rajasthan batsmen will need to pile on the runs through the first six overs in order to emerge as the last undefeated side in the 2015 IPL.
