DECCAN CHARGERS VS RCB: LAST BLOOD
Finally after winning their match against Rajasthan Royals, who were playing for a berth in play-offs, Deccan Chargers now looking to spoil RCB’s party and in the process also trying to escape finishing at the bottom of the IPL point tables now that PWI lost their last match.
With their comprehensive win over table-toppers Delhi Daredevils in their last match, Royal Challengers would not want to take any chances against Deccan Chargers, who came up with an unexpected fantastic bowling performance in their last match here at Hyderabad to deny Rajasthan Royals a victory in their do-or-die match.
Royal Challengers would be very cautious not to repeat the mistakes of Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab, who buckled under pressure in their crunch games.
Chargers would again be relying on Shikhar Dhawan (564 runs) and Cameron White (478), the 2nd and the 6th highest run scorers this IPL. White may again captain the team as Kumar Sangakkara may opt out due to his poor batting display.
Since, the match is going to be played at Hyderabad, the hosts, Deccan Chargers would be hoping a repeat of their bowling performance. Obviously, much will depend upon Steyn and Amit Mishra.
So, Go Chargers, Go !!
