A Contest Among Equals. A Contest among two teams that are led by amazing captains. A Contest among two teams that faced defeat at the hands of the same team - Delhi Daredevils. And they will face to decide who is the better among the two.
While one team has not settled down after the departure of its key players, the other team is gaining momentum under the guidance of their coach and captain. Personally it would be really exciting to see master tactician Warne face against Master Cool Dhoni.
I just hope that Dhoni & Co. get their act together with regard to the team's batting order. Also it is important the bowlers understand their role in the team and bowl with a clear purpose. Fleming and Raina, It is ripe time that you both came good with their bat.
A underdog team that everybody expected to lose has surprised all through their great performance. Even though I support Chennai Super Kings, it is Rajasthan Royals that has gained my respect in this short period of time. Especially Warne has been great all through the tournament with his excellent captaincy and bowling. The way the young lads are responding to him is a matter of envy for all IPL captains.
Most Dangerous Players:
- Captain Warne: Rather than the bowler Warne, I am more worried about Captain Warne. Especially since he had more time than us to prepare for this crucial match.
- Kaif/Mascarenhas: These two players have not yet stamped their class on IPL [While one missed all the opportunities, the other has not got any opportunity]. Just hoping that they did not show their class tomorrow.
- Captain Warne Vs Captain Dhoni
- Smith Vs Ntini
Prediction: A Comfortable win for Chennai Super Kings
