The blockbuster IPL 2018 is coming to an end tonight with the final match being played between Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad. With the top two teams battling it out for the coveted cup, expect a cracker of a match.
Being a Sunday, many are expected to be at home to watch the match from the comfort of their couch. But in case you are out, and still want to follow the match, here are a few apps that will help you watch the IPL 2018 finals on the move. The final match between CSK and SRH will kick off at 7:00PM tonight, and here’s how you can watch the live stream online.
Hotstar is clearly the most popular app to watch the IPL matches on the move. You can subscribe to the app by paying Rs 199 for a month, or Rs 999 for an entire year.Hotstar is available on Android and iOS platforms. There is also a web version. Lastly, there is also the YuppTV app. It too has a subscription-based model with prices starting from only Rs 5 per day and going up to Rs 99 per month.
Airtel users can watch the matches live using the Airtel TV app. This is possible thanks to the telecom company’s partnership with Hotstar. Users will need to have both the Airtel TV and Hotstar apps installed on their phones. A similar feature is also available for Reliance Jio users who need to have the JioTV and Hotstar apps installed on their phones.
There couldn’t have been a better final match, since both CSK and SRH have been far better teams than the rest. Chennai, under the able captaincy of MS Dhoni, are clear favorites on paper. CSK is making a return to the glitzy tournament after a period of two years, and a win would be a fairytale ending. But as the tournament has proven time and time again, all stats and history take a backseat during a match.

SRH, under the captaincy of Kane Williamson, have surprised quite a few with their performances. The team has a nice blend of attacking batsmen, and in-form bowlers like Rashid Khan. All eyes will be on the spinner from Afghanistan to see if he is able to repeat his heroics.
