Chennai Super Kings will take on Sydney Sixers in their opening clash of Champions League T20 2012 at Wanderers, Johannesberg on Sunday.
While Chennai have been the most consstent side in the IPL and also won the CLT20 trophy in the past, Sydney Sixers will be playing in the tournament for the first time.
However, Sydney too have the right mix of dangerous players who can dominate the game. They would be looking at Shane Watson to lead their charge as he was in fantastic form at the ICC World t20 2012. If he can replicate that form, there is no stopping the Sixers.
Sydney’s captain Brad Haddin would also be keen to get this unit to perform and he will have the support of their overseas internationals Michael Lumb and Nathan McCullum.
Murali Vijay, Michael Hussey and Suresh Raina form a fantastic top three and if they get going Chennai can expect a huge score.
