The IPL 2012 live streaming cricket games continue on Friday, April 6, with two more matchups from Indian Premier League. In one game, it will be Mumbai vs. Pune, while the other game will feature Rajasthan vs. Punjab.
The first of the IPL 2012 live games starts at 4:00 local time or 3:30 EDT and will have the Mumbai Heroes vs. Pune Warriors. It’s been reported by ESPNCricInfo that Pune are the underdogs coming into this latest IPL season. They’ll be without the services of star Yuvraj Singh as he recovers from cancer. Leading the way for the team will be Sourav Ganguly. So Pune, a team once unsure if it would even be in this league, has a chance to start off the season with a big win.
Game two on the schedule will have Rajasthan vs. Punjab at Jaipur. Game time is scheduled for 12:00 local time or 10:30 EDT. One preview of this matchup indicates that both teams are considered “second-tier status” for the IPL. However, they have two talented captains in Rahul Dravid and Adam Gilchrist, respectively, who could help their squads succeed this season. These two teams have met 7 times in the past, and so far the Rajasthan Royals have won four of those matches. Will the Kings XI Punjab be able to even things up on Friday?
Both of the cricket games listed above will be shown live streaming online for subscribers of the Willow TV service. The service can be used with laptops, desktop PC’s, Roku, iPad, iPhone, Android, PS3, Boxee, and other specific devices.
Two more cricket games are scheduled for Saturday as the young IPL 2012 season is underway. It’s unclear at this point which teams will be the true contenders going forward, but after the next week of games it should start to shake out a bit.
