PREVIEW: DECCAN CHARGERS V RAJASTHAN ROYALS- MAY 18, 2012May 18, 2012
This is the 68th match of this IPL 2012 where Deccan Chargers and Rajasthan Royals will play against each other at Rajiv Gandhi Stadium, Hyderabad. The match will commence at 8.00 PM IST. While this is a very important match for Rajasthan Royals to seek an entry into the playoffs, this is just a pre-scheduled match for Deccan Chargers who are already out of the playoffs.
This is a penultimate match for Deccan Chargers who are at the bottom of the Points table with only 5 points in hand. Deccan with its severely poor performance in this IPL will only look for a win in this match because that will gather a little pride for the team before leaving this IPL campaign.
On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals squad is struggling to get two successive wins in their upcoming two matches to fulfil their fragile dream to be in the qualifying rounds although their fate is also dependent on Royal Challengers Bangalore’s performance because yesterday Bangalore defeated Delhi and now only one win is needed for them to get into the playoffs. Chennai is almost out of the playoffs after they were defeated by Punjab yesterday. If Dravid’s team succeeds in winning these two matches, the team will end up with 18 points to compete with table topper teams but then the NRR will be considered. So Dravid will try to add another feather to their success at the home ground of Deccan with his best team players. Although, Deccan is at the bottom of the playoffs, in their last one or two matches, they have proved their efficiency by chasing challenging scores. So Rajasthan team has to be very consistent in the field tonight to take over Deccan and to smoothen their way towards playoffs.
This will turn out to be an exciting match because there will be full effort from Rajasthan side as they have lost some matches marginally. Those wins could have placed this talented team in the playoffs quite easily. So keep your eyes on SET MAX to enjoy live telecast of this match from 7.00 PM onwards.
Probable squad for Deccan Chargers: Kumar Sangakkara (c), D Christian, Cameron White, Shikhar Dhawan, Parthiv Patel (wk), Ashish Reddy, Abhishek Jhunjunwala, Akshath Reddy, Juan Theron, Amit Mishra, Veer Pratap Singh.
Probable squad for Rajasthan Royals: Rahul Dravid(c), Shane Watson, Ajinkya Rahane, Ashok Menaria, Johan Botha, Dishant Yagnik(w), Brad Hodge, Stuart Binny, Siddharth Trivedi, Shaun Tait, Pankaj Singh.
