Chennai Super Kings Vs Delhi Daredevils - Match Preview

Another tough match facing Chennai Super Kings today. Two of the best teams this IPL are playing against each other. Last time when both the teams met, Chennai Super Kings choked from a winning position and lost the match. But I hope today will be different with Chennai Super Kings able to set the record straight.

CSK Playing XI: Mostly the same eleven will continue. But I still love to see Vijay in place of Parthiv to strengthen the batting order.

DD Playing XI: I personally don't expect to see any changes. But Sincerely hope Sehwag did not play Mcgrath and he does not hit form against us.. :)

Most Dangerous Players:
  1. Sehwag: Has not clicked this IPL. But when he does, the opposition is bound to be annihilated. Hope that opposition is not us.
  2. Dilshan: It is his batting that is holding Delhi Daredevisl innings together. If Chennai Super Kings bowlers take him cheaply, Delhi Daredevils could be easily restricted to a paltry score.

Royal Contests:
  1. Dilshan Vs Murali: Delhi Daredevils' Most Important Batsman Vs Chennai Super Kings' Strike Bowler. Interesting Battle on the cards.
Favorites: Tough to pick who is the favorite. But surely going to be a very interesting match.

Great win by the Super Kings! As Robin has been mentioning in this blog several times, Tyagi should have been picked a long time back. Shadab Jakati was a surprise package. Vijay will do better if he gets more chances. Badri was very good at no. 4. CSK won despite falling 20 runs short due to a great bowling effort.

@ Danesh,

Yeah.. Jakati was really a suprise package.. Given an opportunity ahead of Ashwin, he made full use of his opportunities. Also being an all rounder he also adds depth to the team.. It is really good to see him perform.. Hope it is not a one-time wonder..
