Finally A Turnaround Waiting to Happen?

We all knew the reasons because of which Chennai Super Kings might lose tomorrow's match. So rather than focusing on the negatives, here are 3 reasons why Chennai Super Kings will win tomorrow's match

1. For the first time in this tournament, i am hearing a determined speech from Dhoni, Hayden, etc. These guys have not yet given up and still believe we can qualify for the semifinals. 
2. We are back @ Lion's Den. Also 2 Days of Rest would have given enough time for the team to rest and regroup. 
3. After 7 wrong combinations, the team can be expected to get their XI right. 

1. Hayden 2. Vijay 3. Raina 4.  Dhoni 5. Albie 6. Badri 7.Jakati 8. Balaji 9. Tyagi 10. Murali 11. Ntini

BRC Probable XI:

1 Manish Pandey, 2 Jacques Kallis, 3 Rahul Dravid, 4 Robin Uthappa, 5 Pietersen, 6 Virat Kohli, 7 Mark Boucher (wk),8 Praveen Kumar 9.Vinay 10. Anil Kumble 11. Steyn

Most Dangerous Players
1. Pietersen: He is back for Bangalore Royal Challengers. Expect him to make a statement tomorrow. 
2. Kumble: Not only his bowling but also his captaincy can decide a game singlehandedly. All the players should be wary of this inspirational and wily fox. 

Favorites: Only a die-hard Chennai Super Kings Fan would pick Chennai Super Kings ahead of Bangalore Royal Challengers.

P.S: Finally, Sathish proves why he should have been picked by CSK.

Same team as robin except that thushara comes in for ntini. thushara did well in last game to give one more chance. Moreover he gives the left arm seamer option and a pinch hitter option

I'd like thushara and tyagi to open the attack (or raina against kallis???). morkel 1st change and bala 2nd change. @coach, no more "use 5 bowlers inside powerplays" business please.

murali - 4 overs
thushara/sudeep/ablie/bala - 12 overs
jakati/raina - 4 overs

hopefully our curators would give a batting beauty.

KP is not in such great form. I think he'll need a game to settle in.

bowlers to target - kallis, vinay, praveen
rotate kumble for singles. 25 runs off his 4 should be ok for us
steyn.. watch out in 1st spell. go all out against him in his second spell.

batsmen to watch out: openers and uthappa

BTW, we miss a guy like satish. Excellent fielder, handy allrounder. would trade him for joginder anyday.

My 11 for today.

Hayden (should stay atleast till the 12th over and stop using mongoose)
Vijay (just because we dont have a better option now)


Morkel(Shoud get into bat atleast by the 12th over)

Badri (with clear instructions not to bang into dhoni yet again and to score atleast at run a ball)

Ganapathi(surprise element to RCB)

Robin you have a big heart as Mr. Srinivasan..putting Badri in the XI.

Goddamned Gony in again, i think the management has gone nuts, Gony must b the only person in IPL who cannot bat, norbowl and drops catches and still effin' comes up in every other match. Balaji is much better than this dimwit. We could rather go with a bowler less.
