“Adversity has the effect of eliciting talents, which in prosperous circumstances would have lain dormant.”
Tomorrow is a crunch game for Chennai Super Kings. After starting the tournament strong, now they are billed by many as the weakest IPL team. And any more defeats would be shown as further proof to those statements. Even the team's fans have started doubting their team's abilities. And Dhoni faces his toughest challenge as a captain. He has never faced such a long losing streak. While Dhoni may be facing his toughest challenge as a captain of Chennai Super Kings, other players are criticized for their poor performance. Right from the coach - Kepler Wessels to the foreign players - Fleming, Ntini have not been great so far.
Times may be tough for Chennai Super Kings, but that's when you show the world what you're made of. There is a great saying, "Adversity doesn't build character...it reveals it." It it time for Chennai Super Kings team to show what they are made up of. For the first time in the series, they enter tomorrow's match as underdogs and expected by one and all to lose the match.
Expect at least one or two changes in the squad.. Changes I would like to see - Parthiv Patel out of playing eleven or batting lower down the order, Anirudha & Fleming opening + Palani Amarnath brought in the squad for Joginder Sharma.
The strongest team on the Indian Premier League would be looking to claw back to its winning ways and clinch the top spot after its surprise defeat at the hands of Mumbai Indians. Expect their players to come back firing. Especially since they had a 3 day rest before this crucial match.
Most Dangerous Players:
- YoMahesh & Sangwan: The outcome of the match will depend on how Chennai Super Kings batsmen handle these two bowlers.
- AB de Villiers: He has not been able to reproduce his Pro20 form so far. So we can expect him to come good for Delhi Daredevils sooner rather than later.
- AB de Villiers Vs Albie Morkel: Both these players have played for the same team(Titans) for so many times. So it would be great to see how they fare against each other.
- YoMahesh Vs Badrinath, Anirudha & Vidyut: All these players have fought many a battle for their domestic team(Tamil Nadu). So it would be enthralling to watch YoMahesh bowl against them.
