Chennai Super Kings have won 2 of their must-win games. But this is the crucial game of the lot. If CSK wins today, they would be level in points with KKR and would really become a top four game (without the advantage of a game in hand – since MI & RCB’s game means only one of them can overtake CSK).
With Faf & Badri expected to be back, the team selection is going to be a nightmare. I for one would like Hussey & Vijay to be retained ahead of Faf & Anirudh.
CSK Probable XI
1. 1. Hussey 2. Vijay 3. Raina 4. Bravo 5. Dhoni 6. Badri 7. Albie 8. Jadeja 9. Ashwin 10. Yo Mahesh 11. Bilfenhauz
KKR Probable XI
1. 1. McNullum 2. Gambhir 3. Kallis 4. Tiwary 5. Pathan 6. Das 7. Shukla 8. Bhatia 9. Brett Lee 10. Sangwan 11. Naraine
Most Dangerous Players
1. Gambhir: He has been in fine form this season. His early wicket is crucial. It would be a great contest between Hilfenhauz and Gambhir – in the beginning of KKR batting
2. Sunil Naraine: None of the batsmen have picked him this IPL Season. Expecting an interesting battle between Naraine & CSK Middle Order Batsmen.
Favorite for the Match: CSK
