Which of the stand-in captains would triumph today?

Is it going to be Suresh Raina, who lives close to Delhi but leads Chennai Super Kings or Dinesh Karthik, the Chennai boy leading Delhi Daredevils?

CSK Probable XI:
1. Hayden 2. Parthiv Patel 3. Suresh Raina 4. Badri 5. Vijay/Badani 6. Justin Kemp 7. Albie Morkel 8. Ashwin 9. Balaji 10. Sudeep Tyagi 11. Murali

DD Probable XI:
1. Sehwag 2. Warner 3. Dilshan 4. Dinesh Karthick 5. Maharoof 6. Manas 7. Rajat 8. Mishra 9. Nannes 10. Sangawan 11. Ladda

Most Dangerous Players:
1. Sehwag, Dilshan & Warner: If one of these players are on fire, only a Herculean effort from Hayden can save the game for Chennai Super Kings
2. Nannes: Only Bowler of international quality in Delhi Squad.

1. Though Delhi Daredevils have more explosive batsman than Chennai Super Kings, Chennai's bowling gives an edge to the team. But the team that bats first would be a natural favorite.

my x1 - one change gony instead of tyagi simply because dhoni is more hit the deck bowler. tyagi is down with confidence, so it is better for him to play under dhoni instead of new captain raina

vijay <- rotate strike. score at 110 - 120 SR

main threat is sehwag. he seems to be in great touch. dont count dilshan yet. hopefully warner lacks match practice. with the number of lefties in csk, we shoud target mishra.

Agree with Cub. Tyagi is best left on the bench and should be brought back only when Gony fails miserably

@ Cub & Danesh,

I would also prefer Gony to Tyagi.. But thought that Raina from UP would back his statemate

And he brought in Joginder Sharma!
