After the shocking loss against the Kolkata Knight Riders, Deccan Chargers will look for their first win against the local favorites Chennai Super Kings. Adam Glichrist must be a worried man after their strong batting line up failed to achieve the target set by Kolkata Knight Riders. A.Glichrist knows how important each and every game for them and they can’t relax throughout the tournament as they are defending champions.
Both teams has strong batting line up so we can expect a high scoring game on a batting friendly pitch. If Decan Chargers has Gilchrist, Gibbs, Symonds and Rohit in their rank then Chennai has Dhoni, Hayden and Raina in their armory.
Bowling attacks of both teams is not as string as from some of the other teams so it will be a game where batsman will decide which team will go home smiling.
The Deccan Chargers, on the other hand, will look to exploit the weak link in Chennai's bowling department. With Andrew Flintoff and Jacob Oram unavailable due to injuries, Chennai will have to depend on Manpreet Gony, L Balaji and Sudeep Tyagi to do the job of picking up the wickets.
Deccan Chargers bowling looks more superior with the presence of experienced Chaminda Vaas. But in twenty20 you can’t tell which team has better day until they perform on the field.

Chennai Super Kings: M.Hayden, P.Patel (WK), H.Badani, M.S.Dhoni (Captain), S.Raina, J.Kemp, S.Badrinath, T.Perera, M.Gony, M.Muralitharan, S.Tyagi.
