Chennai need to win.. Desperately...

After assembling the strongest IPL squad in auction,CSK management would have never expected the team to be in the bottom half of the table. But that is where CSK is. And the team now desperately need not only a single win but a string of wins under its belt. That is why the team should focus - not only on winning tomorrow's match but also on winning both the matches against Pune Warriors.

Until now, the team has been good at home. Hope the trends continues for tomorrow's match also. 

1. Vijay 2.Vignesh 3. Raina 4. Hussey 5. Badri 6. Dhoni  7. Albie 8. Ashwin 9. Jakati 10. Randiv 11. Bollinger

I believe it is time CSK tried out a different opening combination. Bringing Vignesh into the eleven might be a gamble. But it is surely a gamble - that might bring in high dividends. 

Pune Warriors Probable XI:
1. Ryder 2. Paine 3. Manhas 4. Uthappa 5. Yuvraj 6. Mishra 7. Parnell 8. Murali Karthik 9. Sharma 10. Wagh 11. Thomas

Most Dangerous Players
1. Ryder: He is their most in-form batsmen. His early wicket would expose their power-hitting middle order early into the innings
2. Uthappa: Has not had a great season so far. But he is surely their most dangerous batsman in the spin-friendly Chepauk wicket. 

Favorities: CSK are the stronger team on paper. But Pune Warriors have a few batsmen who can win the game on their own. So it should be an interesting game tomorrow.

Don't know if Dhoni/Fleming would take a gamble and bring Vignesh in. They have been very conventional in their thinking so far and may just push Anirudha up the order again. He hit one fifty there and got a MoM so they may do that.

But Joginder definitely has to make way for Jakati or someone else.

bringing in vigi will give us another bowling option...

i think dhoni should make some changs in playing 11.instead jogindar it should be yomakesh or sudeep.and in place of anidritha the allrounder vignesh should be in todays game.if it does not happen superkings will expect same result.Good luck superkings.

Though I'm afraid Dhoni might not change much, it would be great if he brought in Vignesh instead of Anirudha. he should not change the Hussey/Vijay openening pair. I think Hussey is doing pretty well opening eventhough he is a regular middle order batsman. I really think Kulasekara can be given a chance instead of Southee to partner Bollinger. After the tail collapse last game it would be nice to have a sensible hitter like him (remember WC final?).I would like Tyagi to come instead of Jakati/Joginder. But well Randiv is difficult to ignore too.

Hussey (o)
Morkel (o)
Kulasekara/Randiv (o)

Like i expected, only one change - Jakati for joginder. Sometimes Dhoni is ver unimaginative! Anyway hope CSK wins!

Today, Chennai would lose the match. whenever, Mrs. Dhoni came to watch the match, then they lost.
