Match Preview: Rajasthan Royals v Chennai Super Kings- May 10, 2012May 10, 2012
This is the 56th match of the fifth season of IPL and at this stage; all the top rated teams are looking for the opportunity to get qualified in the playoffs. In this match, Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings will play against each other and both are aiming for the playoffs. The match will be played at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur and it will commence at 8.00 PM sharp.
Being in the 5th position in the tally, Rajasthan Royals is also looking to get the fourth position in the playoffs list along with its other competitors- Royal Challengers Bangalore, Chennai Super Kings and Kings XI Punjab. So today, they have to bag a win against Chennai to confirm their fourth position. Initially, Shah and Rahane were outstanding but as this IPL progressed, they were lagging in their performance but now Australian veteran Shane Watson’s arrival graced the team performance because at present Watson is in his regular explosive form to give a big hit to the team score. Watson needs a good support from Shah, Rahane and of course from Captain Dravid. The bowling squad is quite efficient to restrict the opponent. In their last match against Pune, the team got a fabulous victory by 7 wickets and they are ready to continue on the same winning streak.
Chennai Super Kings on the other hand, is literally struggling to get qualified in the playoffs. This season, they have repeatedly failed to prove their efficiency in spite of the presence of a number of star cricketers. Among the 11 team players, eight are good batsmen but apart from Badrinath and Pleiss, none of the players marked fabulous records in this season. Dhoni and Raina have not yet given their explosive performance. All rounder Albie Morkel has been quite successful but the team needs to sort out their previous mistakes before getting in the field tonight to get a victory over Rajasthan.
With a lot of tension tonight in this second match of the day for getting the fourth position of the DLF IPL Standings 2012, both the teams are ready to add color to this pink city in front of the huge Rajasthan crowd. Here are the probable team players for both the teams:
Rajasthan Royals: Rahul Dravid (c), Shane Watson, Ajinkya Rahane, Owais Shah, Johan Botha, Ashok Menaria, Stuart Binny, Ankeet Chavan, Dishant Yagnik (wk), Shaun Tait, Siddharth Trivedi.
Chennai Super Kings: MS Dhoni (c & wk), Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Murali Vijay, S Badrinath, Ravindra Jadeja, Albie Morkel, Dwayne Bravo, Shadab Jakati, Ben Hilfenhaus, Ravichandran Ashwin.
