Chennai Superkings vs Delhi Daredevils

Category: By raja raghavan aka rahul
Every IPL game is big because there is so much at stake, but the one taking place at Kingsmead on Thursday is special because it features two crack teams — Delhi Daredevils and Chennai Superkings. Both appear to be well balanced and possess enviable firepower in all departments.Last year’s runners-up the Chennai Super Kings will look to maintain their winning momentum after bouncing back from their opening match defeat.
On paper at least the Daredevils have an explosive batting order that starts firing from the top with openers Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir being in murderous form. They have depth in batting too and to make things intriguing, they will be up against a side which has the attack to test them. On the other hand,Australian Matthew Hayden, who holds the orange cap, has been in great touch even after his retirement. CSK has no less batting firepower than the formidable looking batting line-up of Delhi Daredevils.
Among pacers, Daredevils will depend on the exuberance of Indian youngsters Pradeep Sangwan, Yomahesh and Australian Dirk Nannes. For Super Kings, Manpreet Gony, L. Balaji and all-rounders Flintoff and Morkel will do the job.With spinners dominating the game so far, Thursday’s match would also witness New Zealander Daniel Vettori and Sri Lankan Muttiah Muralitharan displaying their wily stuff.
