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.
CSK My XI:
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.
