Visakhapatnam: Apr 7, 2012

 

Deccan Chanrgers take on defending champions Chennai Super Kings in their first encounter of fifth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) match on Saturday.

 

Chennai, the most consistent side in the short history of IPL, were beaten fair and square in front of their home crowd by Mumbai in the inaugural match of the season on Wednesday and they would look to register their first win of the edition against Deccan, one of the weaker sides this year.

 

The side led by India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni did not look like a team chasing a hat-trick of titles with their key batsmen failing miserably and bowlers coming a cropper to lose against Mumbai by eight wickets. They could post a meagre 112 and lost the match with 19 balls to spare.

 

Much will depend on the combine of Dhoni and Suresh Raina to secure Chennai’s first win tomorrow. Both have not been in the best of forms recently and they would look to make a mark for their team.

 

All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, the costliest player at this year’s auction, came a cropper against Mumbai, but he can be a match-winner any day with his all-round skills in home conditions.

 

Two other key players, Australian Doug Bollinger and Ravichandran Ashwin — their pace and spin spearheads — would also be eager to make a mark quickly in the tournament against a side which will be without captain Kumar Sangakkara who would be missing tomorrow’s match due to national duty against England in Sri Lanka.

 

Deccan, on the other hand, are one of the least fancied sides this year with some of their key players having to sit out of the tournament.

 

They failed to progress to the knock-out phase last year and finished seventh. This year, the Hyderabad-based side will miss the services of India pacer Ishant Sharma who underwent surgery on his ankle recently.

 

West Indian Darren Bravo, who has been compared with the legendary batsman Brian Lara, will also not be available as he will be doing national duty at home in the Test series against Australia starting Saturday.

 

Teams

 

Chennai Super Kings: Faf du Plessis, Murali Vijay, Suresh Raina, Dwayne Bravo, Albie Morkel, S Badrinath, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shadab Jakati, Doug Bollinger.

 

Deccan Chargers: Daniel Harris, Shikhar Dhawan, Parthiv Patel (w), Bharat Chipli, Cameron White (c), Daniel Christian, Dwaraka Ravi Teja, Ankit Sharma, Dale Steyn, Manpreet Gony, TP Sudhindra.
