The Chennai Super Kings are playing against Royal Challengers Banglore in Chennai which is their home ground. There is a lot at stake for the home team after loosing a match with the Kings XI Punjab, in Punjab. They went into the match as favorites and put up a good total but only to find out that the Kings XI Punjab were better than them to chase it down with balls to spare led by quite an unknown player. They had a bad day when their batting got underway loosing 2 wickets in the fist two balls of the match. Later while bowling they dropped catches quite regularly and had misfield's and overthrows. It was understood that even if Chennai had probably put on 200 runs on the board they would have still been beaten, that was how bad their performance was overall. They will certainly like to show a much better performance with the bat, ball and in the field.
The Royal Challengers Banglore are on the other hand low on confidence. They've beaten only Kochi Tuskers Kerala in the tournament so far. Out of the three matches they've played they have won only one and loosing two. They will like to get their points in the tournament too and make a match out of it. Daniel Vettori did not seem to be in the best of fitness in his last match. They have a lot depending on his bowling. The Royal Challengers bat with good depth giving them an added advantage. They would like to put everything they have on the board in the upcoming match.
Both the teams will try to settle into a eleven as the tournament is heading towards more important stages now. They will like to ensure they have a balanced side with enough bowling to get wickets at the same time contain the batsman if need be and enough batting to bat a side out of a game and good fielding too. As fielding has become one of the most important aspects of today's cricket. There were matches which have turned on its head just because of its fielding. It will be an interesting contest in Chennai and the fans will be in the stadium to support their home team CSK. M S Dhoni and Daniel Vettori will look to make the best use of the resources they have at hand and come out of this match with a win.
