Chennai Super Kings Vs Deccan Chargers - Match Preview

After the two wins, Chennai Super Kings would be looking to string together another win under its belt. And they are coming against the table topper - Deccan Chargers who will be looking to bounce back after their 2 consecutive defeats. But their cause won't be helped by the fact that their strike bowler Fidel Edwards has left for West Indies - England Test Match.
CSK Playing XI: Personally I don't expect to see any major changes. But hope that Oram, Morkel and Vijay grab their chances and prove their worth to the team.
DD Playing XI: Vaas would be coming in for Fidel Edwards; I don't expect any more changes in the team. 


Most Dangerous Players:
  1. Gilchrist & Gibbs: Gilchrist and Gibbs' annihilation of Chennai Super Kings bowlers set up Deccan Chargers Win in the last match. Hope Tyagi & Morkel remove both of them early and don't leak many runs during the fielding restrictions.
  2. Ojha: Ojha has been bowling beautifully all through this tournament. Our Scores would be largely depend on how our middle order batsman handle him.
Royal Contests:
  1. Vaas Vs Hayden: Both these Senior cricketers have had many battles.  But I am sure this battle between Hayden and Deccan Chargers' Opening Bowlers would determine the match.
Favorites: Chennai Super Kings has too much talent to lose to Deccan Chargers again. Hope Dhoni leads the team to another victory.

The key to Chennai Super Kings victory lies in controlling Deccan Chargers' openers. To achieve that, they have to sacrifice one of the all-rounders, Jacob Oram or Albie Morkel, for a better bowler in Makhaya Ntini. Personally, I feel Oram should make way for Ntini if Chennai has to pose a bigger challenge to Deccan Chargers.

@ Dhoni and IPL 2009,

Oram is playing.. I believe he adds a lot more to the team than Ntini..

@ praveen,
