Pre-match review

After displaying a dismal performance in the last match against spinners of the same opponent, Super Kings want to get at least one win in their kit to lull those who question the overall team formation and the captaincy skills of MSD who is not at all in the news for good reasons from last few months.

This match will be dependent on the selection and injury woes of both the teams. If the rumor is to be believed, MSD, A Morkel and Dinda will be out of this match. If it happens so, Super Kings will lose the steam they desparately need to boost the confidence of their players. Warriors on the other hand are yet to regain consciousness from 21 runs they conceded to ABD and S Tiwary in the last over of Tuesday's match. Their consistent opening partnership is the biggest advantage so far. Ganguly has credibility on his side as far as captaincy is considered, but he is yet to make a mark on the batting front. One, who is not consistently good in batting or bowling, can not motivate the team members for the longer time.

So yet another MSD vs Ganguly fixture in 5 days. This time it's MA Chidambaram stadium and Super Kings will be delighted to get some rest and the batting-friendly pitch to script a fresh chapter from now on. I will go with the firepower, against form, again and think that Super Kings have a upper hand in this meet.

Final word from editor: ....Super Kings have a upper hand in this meet.
