Star-studded Chennai Super Kings (CSK) take on the Rajasthan Royals in the first semi-final clash of the Champions League T20 (CLT20) 2013 at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Friday.
While Rajasthan have been a low key side, all their players have proved effective and performed well as a unit. Rahul Dravid may not have been in the best of the form with the bat, but he has marshalled his troops extremely well. This match could also prove to be his last appearance in competitive cricket.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni on the other hand has a plethora of resources at his disposal. Although they have a settled unit that has performed well consistently for a long period, beating Rajasthan at their fortress would be a tough task. Rajasthan have been unbeaten at Jaipur in their last 12 encounters.
Rajasthan Royals: Rahul Dravid (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Sanju Samson (wk), Shane Watson, Stuart Binny, Brad Hodge, Dishant Yagnik, James Faulkner, Kevon Cooper, Rahul Shukla, Pravin Tambe.
Chennai Super Kings: Michael Hussey, Murali Vijay, Suresh Raina, Subramaniam Badrinath, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Chris Morris, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohit Sharma, Jason Holder.
