Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will be facing Pune Warriors India (PWI) at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai in the 24th match of DLF Indian Premier League T20 2012 (IPL 5) today 19 April 2012 at 8.00 PM.
Pune Warriors India won the match earlier they have played against CSK in this season of IPL. In the earlier versions of IPL, CSK and PWI have met twice and both the matches were won by CSK.
Defending Champions CSK have a few worries this time around. Murali Vijay is yet to find his rhythm and M. Hussey has not joined them yet. Even their captain MS Dhoni is not in the pink of his form. They are occupying the 6th position on the points table winning only 2 matches of the 5 they have played so far. They will be trying to turn the table on PWI this time.
On the other hand, Saurav Ganguly led PWI have done creditably by winning 3 of the 5 matches they have played in IPL 5 and occupying the 4 position above CSK with 6 points in the Points table. Their explosive batsmen Robin Uthappa and Jessy Ryder are to be watched on the slow pitch of MA Chidambaram stadium. Their skill was in display at Bangalore when PWI played against RCB, though PWI lost the match.
