Chennai: May 12, 2013

Chennai Super Kings will host beleaguered Delhi Daredevils in the 64th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. Chennai will be looking to steamroll Delhi Daredevils after their loss to Rajasthan Royals at Sawai Mansingh Stadium by five wickets.

The top-order of Chennai is in red-hot form. Michael Hussey (the Orange Cap holder) is batting well and he is complemented well by Murali Vijay. The duo put up 83 for the first wicket against Royals. Historically they have a couple of hundred run stands as well. The need of the hour is another big alliance as Chennai are aiming to finish in the Top two positions in order to gain the advantage in the playoffs. A loss then would mean another chance in the eliminator. A win would ensure their passage into the fourth consecutive IPL final.

The middle order had a wobbly outing against Rajasthan. Suresh Raina (1) and MS Dhoni (2) were dismissed in the same over off Kevon Cooper. Ravindra Jadeja struggled to accelerate in the end overs. Subramaniam Badrinath didn’t get an opportunity to bat. Chennai use Badrinath as a floater. If they lose early wickets Badrinath comes to bat at No 4, where as if they get decent start [as has been the case in majority of the matches] Badrinath bats as low as No 7.
