Defending champions Chennai Super kings will take on Delhi Daredevils in the qualifier2 of DLF IPL 2012 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. This particular game will ensure that Kolkata Knight Riders is going to play in the finals for the title clash.
Both teams were opposite to each other Delhi team ended up their league matches as the table topper but were thrashed by KKR in the qualifier1,on the other hand Chennai is blessed by some god grace entered into the playoffs and played bravely in the eliminator and defeated Mumbai Indians.
For Chennai point of view Skipper’s form clicked at the right time. When his team looked like completing the innings with an average total in the past go with against the Mumbai Indians, the CSK skipper switched on the heat. He obtained a 20-ball half-century (his first of the season) and played some electrifying shots all over the ground and put the score beyond the reach at of the oppositions. Yet another do-or-die competition for his team, expectation is high from Dhoni to give another unique performance.
In the Delhi Daredevils line-up, keep an eye on the two players at the top of the order. Virender Sehwag and Warner are among the most risky batsmen in world cricket currently. On their day, both batsmen are able of destroying the best bowling attack with ease. The Delhi Daredevils skipper obtained half-centuries in five successive innings; but after that run, he was taken to a stop. He has only made 49 runs in the next five innings. Can he generate a unique affect in this all-important clash?
Delhi lost one match in Chennai this year against CSK by scoring a low total of 114 runs on 12th may. They are looking for revenge. Whoever wins the toss will decide to bowl and keep the batting team limited to 120-130 runs, which is possible in Chennai pitch.
