Punjab look to keep the winning habit
30 April 2009, 6:54 pm



Match facts

May 1, 2009

Start time 16.30pm (14.30GMT)



The choice of captain will be the dominating issue for Bangalore with Jacques Kallis the frontrunner for the position

AFP

Big Picture

Kings XI Punjab are running hot. They have won their last three games and are favourites against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Punjab lost a few big names like Brett Lee and Shaun Marsh ahead of the tournament but have brilliantly gelled together as a team. Even relatively unknown names like Yusuf Abdulla, who was drafted in to cover for the injured Jerome Taylor, have stood up to be counted.

With spin increasingly proving to be effective on dry pitches, they will be relying heavily on Piyush Chawla and Ramesh Powar. Irfan Pathan has also hit a purple patch and VRV Singh turned in a frugal spell in the last game that he played. They have successfully defended two low scores in a row but will be hoping for a tall score if they bat first against Bangalore.

Bangalore have been struggling after a bright start but gave themselves some breathing space with the win against Kolkata in the last game. They will have a new captain - Jacques Kallis is the the frontrunner - and while the bowling hasn't been bad, the batting has let them down. Five first-ball dismissals and three second-ball dismissals - a rare occurrence in cricket - have meant the batting has never got going and they have been always trying to repair the faulty start. They went in with Shreevats Goswami as an opener in the last game and finally, found some momentum. Anil Kumble has been in top form and they have drafted in KP Appanna and Roelof van der Merwe to bolster the spin. Suffice to say, it won't be a walkover for Punjab.

Form guide

Delhi: Pathan and Abdulla have worked wonderfully so far and have been successful in knocking down early wickets. Irfan does the job with the new ball while they have tended to use Abdulla, who has a good yorker at the death.  

Bangalore: Despite being out of action, Anil Kumble has been miserly as ever and the opposition batsmen have been trying to play out his quota of overs. van der Merwe had a good outing with the ball in the last game and though he is agricultural in his batting, he can turn in an innings that could make a difference.

Watch out for

Kumble v Yuvraj: Last time they faced, Yuvraj gave plenty of respect to Kumble, preferring to not to take any risks. Watch out for Kumble tempting Yuvraj with his googlies. Last time, the situation allowed Yuvraj to play out Kumble; tomorrow it might require him to take a few risks. The contest should be very interesting.

Team news

For Punjab, the management is considering bringing in Simon Katich for Ravi Bopara though Tom Moody added that Luke Pomersbach too is in contention. "Katich has been middling the ball really well but if we feel we need a bit of fire at the top, Luke can come in," Moody said.  

Punjab: (probable) 1 Karan Goel, 2 Simon Katich, 3 Yuvraj Singh (capt), 4 Kumar Sangakkara (wk), 5 Mahela Jayawardene, 6 Irfan Pathan, 7 Taruwar Kohli, 8 Piyush Chawla, 9 Vikramjeet Malik, 10 Ramesh Powar, 11 Yusuf Abdulla.

The choice of captain will be the dominating issue for Bangalore with Jacques Kallis the frontrunner for the position.

Bangalore: (probable) 1 Virat Kohli, 2 Jacques Kallis, 3 Kevin Pietersen (capt), 4 Robin Uthappa (wk), 5 Roelof van der Merwe, 6 Mark Boucher, 7 B Akhil, 8 R Vinay Kumar, 9 Pankaj Singh, 10 Anil Kumble, 11 KP Appanna

Head-to-head record

Punjab won by seven wickets in the last match at Durban, but it was a tight game and gave them their first win of the tournament. It came down to the final overs where Yuvraj Singh and Ravi Bopara showed immense maturity to select the bowlers to be attacked and executing their plan to a T. In 2008, Punjab were one of the teams to beat in the league phase while Bangalore were dismal right through the tournament. Punjab posted easy wins both the times they came up against Bangalore last season.

Good for them. At least some sanity now. AK is the only senior who can walk into this team as a player other than RD and may be Boucher ( not all the time)

Yesterday they played 2 practise matches against a   local team and it seems that both Uthappa and Bishnoi impressed . Hence , they may have made a come-back . Uthappa will definitely bat lower down the order and it may just help him.

My only concern is we have 3 spinners and just 1 pacer in PK . It definitely means Kallis will have to bowl a few overs . Is Kallis good enough to bowl with the new ball??

yeah..it is easy to talk about this without showing any good alternative. Needless to say if RD/KP were available this would not have been the team!

BRC like MI are playing too many batsmen !!! Pankaj Singh or B Kumar should have played instead of Bishnoi or Uthappa !!! PK, Pankaj, AK, Apanna, Merwe with Kallis/Ryder as backup is their best bowling lineup at the moment.

Nice to send Bishnoi up the order to see if he can get his eye in and score some runs rather than send him down the oder, under pressure.

what about the 2nd spinner's spot in the Indian 20-20 team (although it seems like Yusuf would take up that spot)?

its a close one between Ojha/PC. Mishra is also good. this is based on just this year's IPL. Although, 2nd spinner is a luxury in the XI with T20 WC in Eng early summer.

This is one more guy, I have been very reluctanct to remove from my fantasy team.
I personally think he has the talent to be MOM with eiter bat or ball. However when he gets the chance, ensures they don't select him in the next one.

Kumble takes over and opts to bat
1 May 2009, 2:45 pm



Toss Royal Challengers Bangalore opted to bat v Kings XI Punjab

Live scorecard and ball-by-ball details

The speculation over who Royal Challengers Bangalore's new captain would be were put to rest when Anil Kumble walked out to join Yuvraj Singh at the toss. Kumble, Bangalore's leading wicket-taker this season, started off by winning the toss and opted to bat.

Bangalore had previously nominated Jacques Kallis to take over from Kevin Pietersen when the England batsman was to return for the Test series against West Indies, but Kumble is now the man to try and lift a struggling side.

Bangalore's XI for this game included a few key changes - Jesse Ryder got another chance to try and back his price tag and Robin Uthappa, an utter flop so far, was also recalled. Rajesh Bishnoi replaced Manish Pandey, who didn't do much in Bangalore's last defeat.

Punjab brought in Simon Katich for Ravi Bopara at the top.

Teams

Royal Challengers Bangalore: 1 Jesse Ryder, 2 Sreevats Goswami, 3 Jacques Kallis, 4 Virat Kohli, 5 Robin Uthappa, 6 Mark Boucher (wk), 7 Roelof van der Merwe, 8 Rajesh Bishnoi, 9 Praveen Kumar, 10 KP Appanna, 11 Anil Kumble (capt).

Kings XI Punjab: 1 Simon Katich, 2 Karan Goel, 3 Yuvraj Singh (capt), 4 Kumar Sangakkara (wk), 5 Mahela Jayawardene, 6 Irfan Pathan, 7 Tanmay Srivastava, 8 Piyush Chawla, 9 Ramesh Powar, 10 Vikramjeet Malik, 11 Yusuf Adbulla.
