Rahul Dravid team will be facing a tough battle when they take on an unbeaten team in the tournament so far, Chennai Super Kings. The Chennai side is the only team in the tournament to have emerged winners on all three ocassion they have taken the field.
All batsmans of Chennai Super Kings looks in great nick in the matches they have played so far. The Likes of M.Hayden and M.S. Dhoni have already showed in the last match what they can do with their opposition. SO Dravid's bowlers would have to be as accurate as possible to restrict them from scoring at will.
The Bangalore Royal Challengers, though, would have a strong batsman in Misbah-ul-Haq to replace Ross Taylor, who goes for the national duty.
The Dhoni led side would be without M.Hussey who is flying for Australia as he has been called by the home board to participate in the pre-Caribbean tour camp.
The chances of Bangalore Royal Challengers will depend on how their batsman performs in this match. Since their batsman struggle badly against Rajasthan Royals in their last league match.
If they would like to register the win against Chennai Super Kings then one or two batsman from their top orders need to make a big score like 70’s plus.
On the other hand Chennai Super Kings are very confident of beating the host with the kind of formidable batting and bowling line up they poses.
