Results: Rajasthan Royals Won
Faourite Team: Deccan Chargers with 78p
The team in top form has to play very ordinarily to lose this match. Well, in IPL, one can not be sure of anything. But, this is Jaipur. And Deccan has one of the poor bowling attacks in this season with the exception of Dale Steyn of course.
Having said that, Chargers still look good in the batting department. IPL match can be won by one or two big innings. And the likes of Sangakkara, White, Christian and Dhawan are capable of doing that. Even Amit Mishra can provide the late fireworks, if required.
As far as comparison with Chargers' northern opponent goes, I would still go with Royals. The tide is on their side and they've reliable batsmen to bank on. Royals don't have big names in their bowling cadet. But, they know how to bowl in the right areas and how to play like a team. The heat is on and Royals have sufficient potential to cool it off.
