PREVIEW: CHENNAI SUPER KINGS Vs RAJASTHAN ROYALS ON APRIL 21, 2012April 21, 2012
This is the 26th match of this IPL where two potential teams of IPL will confront each other at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on April 21, 2012. This match between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals will commence at 4 PM sharp. This will be a great match to watch because on one side Dravid is standing with his glorious squad and on the other side, Dhoni is ready with his strong and explosive team to get a win in this match.
Although Chennai team is standing at the 5th position in the Points Table with equal number of victory and lost matches, the team is one of the favorites in this IPL because of their explosive batting line up. Batsmen like Plessis, Badrinath, Raina, Morkel are the megastars of this team. In its last match against Pune Warriors, Badrinath and Plessis made an outstanding partnership to get a good score for the team. For today’s match also, the team is looking to make a good score which can be a winning factor for this team. Their bowling lineup is not as strong as Rajasthan and so the batsmen have to take the responsibility to pocket another win in this match.
This year, Rajasthan team is back in their usual form like 2008 when they became the 1st IPL champion. In this IPL 2012, Rajasthan is getting one win after the other and among the 6 matches played; they won 4 matches and lost 2. Under Dravid’s superb captaincy, the team has once more returned to their original pace with a very strong and attacking bowling line up which, is enough to keep the opponent team under pressure. Along with their bowling squad, Rahane and Shah can also take the responsibility to make a 180+ score for their team which Chennai have to chase against their attacking bowling to get the victory.
However, home ground is always an additional advantage for any team and so it is quite difficult to predict the result of this match where Dravid and Dhoni are ready to confront each other with their strong and powerful squads. So, let us all hope for the best for our respective favorite teams till the end of the match.
