IPL fans can watch the 24th match of 2015 live online when Kings XI Punjab take their giant killing momentum into M. A. Chidambaram Stadium to face the powerhouse Chennai Super Kings, hoping to take down their second table-topper in a row. But on the road against M.S. Dhoni’s side, which seems to get support in any stadium where it plays, the Kings XI will face an uphill battle.
For information on how to watch Kings XI Punjab vs. Chennai Super Kings live online, see below. The match is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. Indian Standard Time, which is 10:30 a.m. United States Eastern Time, 7:30 a.m. Pacific.
In their last outing, the struggling Kings XI, with just one win out of four, knocked off the previously undefeated, league-leading Rajasthan Royals — needing the Indian Premier League’s first Super Over of 2015 to do it after each side ended 20 overs at 192.
Australian fast bowler Mitchell Johnson had struggled so far in he eighth edition of the IPL, coming off a strong performance in the ICC Cricket World Cup which ended in late March with Australia winning its fifth championship.
But in the Super Over, Johnson took both Rajasthan wickets to end the match and give Punjab the victory.
Chennai at 4-1 sits right behind Rajasthan in second place, and behind the newly confident Johnson, Kings XI have another massive upset on their minds.
There have not been many negatives for M.S. Dhoni’s Chennai side in IPL 2015. The struggling form of spinner Ravi Jadeja has been one of them. Considered one of the top spinners in the world, Jadeja has proven largely ineffective so far in the current campaign.
But Dhoni has been reluctant to make any changes to his lineup this year, so whether he will find a solution to the Jadeja issue, or simply allow the India bowler to work through his issues, taking his chances on those 24 balls, will be one important question to be answered in Saturday’s match.
