Another high-scoring match awaits

A win tomorrow will take CSK to the top of the table - a well deserved lead in the IPL this year. Considering Chennai pitch this year, expecting another high-scoring match - with a pitch that slows down as the match progresses.

CSK Probable XI
1. Hussey 2. Vijay 3. Raina 4. Badri 5. Bravo 6. Dhoni 7. Jadeja 8. Morris 9.Ashwin 10. Nannes/Albie 11. M Sharma

If Nannes is fit, expect him to play. Otherwise it is time to end Holder's trial and bring back Albie. 

KKR Probable XI
1. Bisla 2. Gambhir 3. Kallis 4. Morgan 5. Tiwary 6. McNullum 7. Das 8. Bhatia 9. Abdullah 10. Naraine 11. Balaji

It is time CSK took early wickets and restrict the opposition's batting. 

Most Dangerous Players
1. Kallis: KKR depends on his bowling and batting. Neutralizing him is the key for CSK today. 
2.. Naraine & Gambhir: While KKR's bowling revolves around Naraine, their batting revolves around Gambhir. I am sure that the team would have prepared a game plan for them. 

Prediction: Expecting a match dominated by the batsmen & another CSK win.

As I had mentioned earlier, CSK team management finally did away with Vijay. Today, we had a wonderful opening partnership of 100 and at a brisk pace. It was not just Hussey scoring with the other opener acting as his sidekick, Saha played well and at times matched Hussey stroke for stroke.
