IPL 2016, Qualifier 1, Gujarat Lions vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Live Streaming

In the 1st Qualifier of IPL 2016 Gujarat Lions will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on 24 May.


IPL has been a tough fought competition this year and and 24 May will see the 57th match of the tournament with Gujarat Lions and Royal Challengers Bangalore facing off in Qualifier 1 for a direct place in the final.

Powered by an in-form Virat Kohli's inspirational leadership, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) would look to inch closer to a maiden IPL title triumph when they take on table-toppers Gujarat Lions.

RCB were in a real spot of bother as they needed to win their last four games to make it to the play-offs. The Bangalore outfit showed great fighting spirit, with Kohli leading from the front, to record four consecutive wins to finish the league engagements at the second spot.

RCB finished the preliminary round with 16 points from 14 games, just behind leaders Gujarat Lions, who garnered 18 from 14 matches.

On the other end, new franchise Gujarat have performed exceptionally well under the captaincy of Suresh Raina to finish at the top in the points table by winning nine out of their 14 games.

The last time RCB squared up against Gujarat here, they recorded the biggest ever (144-run) victory in the history of IPL. AB de Villiers (129 not out) and Virat Kohli (109) went on a rampage in that game and scored magnificent centuries.

And come tomorrow, the Bangalore outfit will once again fancy their chances on home turf. The biggest hero for RCB this season has been skipper Kohli, who is perhaps enjoying the best phase of his batting career.

Kohli has so far amassed a record 919 runs in the ongoing IPL with four centuries and six fifties at a staggering average of 91.90. Kohli has also been an impressive captain and infused confidence in the team after a disappointing start.

Squads 
Royal Challengers Bangalore: Virat Kohli (captain), Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers, Shane Watson, KL Rahul, Sachin Baby, Varun Aaron, Abu Nechim, Sreenath Aravind, Stuart Binny, Yuzvendra Chahal, Travis Head, Iqbal Abdullah, Kedar Jadhav, Chris Jordan, David Wiese, Akshay Karnewar, Sarfaraz Khan, Vikramjeet Malik, Mandeep Singh, Parveez Rasool, Harshal Patel, Kane Richardson, Tabraiz Shamshi, Vikas Tokas, Praveen Dubey.

Delhi Daredevils vs Royal Challengers Bangalore IPL Live Streaming

In the last league stage match of Indian Premier League 2016 Delhi Dardevils will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore at Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium, Raipur, on 22 May, Sunday.


Delhi Daredevils come into this fixture following their victory over league leaders Sunrisers Hyderabad. Karun Nair's unbeaten knock of 83 helped Zaheer Khan's side win the clash in the final ball of the match.

The match will be a virtual knockout match as only one of the two teams - Delhi Daredevils and Royal Challengers Bangalore – can progress to the Playoffs.The equation is pretty straightforward: Winner progresses to the Playoffs, Loser packs their kitbags.

The Daredevils sealed a six-wicket victory and that has kept them alive in the tournament. Their only chance of qualification is to beat RCB on Sunday as a defeat will lead to an exit from the tournament.

Royal Challengers also need a victory to cement a place in the top four. However, a defeat will see them depend on other results, which they will know prior to the start of their match, to qualify for play-off.

Virat Kohli has been in fine form for the Challengers and RCB will be relying on their captain to fire with the bat towards victory in the final match against the Daredevils. It is going to be an exciting clash, especially since the Daredevils have defeated Kohli's side earlier in the season.

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad live streaming

Kolkata Knight Riders take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2016 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata, on Sunday, 22 May.

SRH are already through to the play-offs, and a win against Kolkata will secure one of the first two spots for them in the ipl 2016 points table. SRH have 16 points table.

The equation for KKR is simple win and progress to the play-offs. If KKR get the better of SRH, they will get to 16 points, which should be sufficient to make sure they finish among the top four teams. If KKR lose though, they will be tied on 14 points with Mumbai Indians. They need to ensure they don’t lose badly; just to give an indication, only if KKR lose to SRH by a margin of about 40-45 runs or with 4-5 overs to spare will their Net Run Rate drop below MI’s NRR.

Both teams are coming into this contest at the back of defeats; KKR were thrashed by the Gujarat Lions on Thursday night, while SRH couldn’t defend 6 runs off the last two balls in their match against Delhi Daredevils on Friday night.

Gujarat Lions vs Mumbai Indians Live Streaming, Score

Gujarat Lions take on Mumbai Indians in the 54th match of VIVO IPL 2016 at Green Park in Kanpur on 21 May.


With seven wins in 13 matches, Mumbai are currently placed fifth, tied on 14 points with Royal Challengers Bangalore (3rd) and Kolkata Knight Riders (4th) -- both having better net run-rate with one match to go.

Nothing but a win for Mumbai will keep their hopes alive for the play-offs in the match against Gujarat. It will be a do-or-die game for them as a loss against Gujarat will knock them out of the race of the play-offs.

Gujarat on the other hand have 16 points from 13 matches and are at the second spot in the IPL 2016 Points Table. A Victory against Mumbai will seal one of the two spots for them in the play-offs. Whereas a loss in the match against mumbai will keep the door open for other teams and gujarat will lose their second spot to either Kolkata, Bangalore or Delhi Dardevils.

It is going to be a tough match to predict with both sides capable of exhilarating performances on their day.
