With the end of the league stages approaching, this game between Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Daredevils has a lot of context for both the teams. Delhi Daredevils have lost their only match-winner and would be itching to prove that they can win without Sehwag. Chennai Super Kings would be on a high after their second away victory and would be looking to continue their domination at Chennai. .
With the win against Rajasthan Royals, Chennai Super Kings need a win with a good run-rate to qualify for the play-offs. But wins in the next two matches would surely go a long-way in helping the team to qualify for the top two positions. If the teams qualify in the top two, the other teams have to defeat CSK at Chennai (an uphill task) to win the cup.
CSK Probable XI:
1. Vijay 2. Hussey 3. Raina 4. Badri 5. Dhoni 6. Morkel 7.Bravo 8. Abhinav Mukund/Saha 9. Ashwin 10. Jakati 11.Bollinger
I still can't understand CSK management picking Saha ahead of Mukund and Srikkanth. But i expect Srikkanth or Mukund to return to the side in this game.
DD Probable XI:
1. Colin Ingram 2. Warner 3. Ojha 4. Venugopal Rao 5. Hopes 6. Irfan Pathan 7. Sridhar Sriman 8. Y Nagar 9. Ajit Agarkar 10. Morne Morkel 11. Nadeem
Most Dangerous Players
1. Morne Morkel: He would be looking for a good performance after the thrashing by Mumbai Indians. Also a win tomorrow would give a lot of bragging rights at home (against Albie)
2. Warner: Like Sehwag, he can single-handedly win the match for Delhi Daredevils. But Chennai's pitch might not be to his liking.
Favorites: CSK are the favorites but writing-off Delhi Daredevils would be a huge mistake.
