PREVIEW: DECCAN CHARGERS V KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS ON APRIL 22, 2012April 21, 2012
Tomorrow, at 8.00 PM, the second match of the day will commence where Deccan Chargers and Kolkata Knight Riders will play against each other in the 29th match of this IPL at Barabati Stadium, Cuttack. This match is quite important for both the teams but in a different way. Stuck at the last position of the Points Table, Deccan is struggling for a victory in this match to register their first win in this tournament and also to get at least a steady position in the list. On the other side, Kolkata team is looking for another win to upgrade their position from third to second.
The batting line up of Deccan team is not very poor to get a good score for the team. Dhawan and Sangakkara along with middle order batsmen like Duminy and Parthiv Patel are doing a great job to get a good and competitive score for their team. But the bowling squad is giving an embarrassing performance repeatedly. The only efficient bowler is Steyn who has been excellent so far. So, to get a win in this match on April 22, the bowlers have to be attacking to create pressure over the opponent.
Getting two successive losses in the beginning of this IPL, Kolkata has now bounced back in their original steady position and after bagging 3 wins with a NRR of +0.438; the team is in the third position at present. The batting order is quite good to chase any competitive score whereas the bowlers like Brett Lee, Narine and Balaji are quite efficient to restrict their opponent within 130 to 140. There is a high chance of victory for Kolkata team but Deccan may also register their first win if the change of venue in their home ground acts as a luck factor for them.
Probable team for Deccan Chargers: Sangakkara(c), Dhawan, Christian, Patel, Duminy, Sohal, Chipli, Steyn, Mishra, Sharma, VP Singh.
Probable team for Kolkata Knight Riders: Gambhir(C), Kallis, Bisla, Tiwary, Das, Pathan, Shakib, Lee, Bhatia, Narine, Balaji.
