IPL 2009 - Match 29 (CSK vs DC).
« on: May 04, 2009, 06:14:57 AM »

CSK could slip further with a loss..
..and DC cannot afford to lose 3 in a row.

Will VVS replace Venu?

I would prefer a DC win. That's coz CSK is neck and neck with MI ..so, the lower they go, the better for us. DC has played only 6 so far, so I think they'll be able to pull off 3 wins out of the remaining 8.

Without Dhoni and Albie firing CSK are still in contention DC on the other hand seems stretched. Someone other than RS has to score for them, can simply not rely on the openers to get them home all the time.

Well AG and HG have been scoring consistently. And now they have this Suman chap who has also come good.

CSK's batting is fine. But any team that opens its bowling with Albie Morkel has a problem on that front.

DD needs a replacement desi player for Mithun Manhas.

and we really should have bid for a desi good bowler (other than stupid Nehra).

No Vaas.  Interesting.  Ryan Harris for Edwards.  Very eager to see how Harris does.

CSK is firm favorite for this match. Momentum is with them. Time for MSD to join the party and VVS is back in Hyd team to drag down the momentum during Hyd batting!

what a brilliant move by gilchrist ! as soon as dhoni came in he brought on ojha. dhoni cant play ojha for life. last year ojha made dhoni a complete bunny. raina on the other hand could have taken ojha to the cleaners in the kind of form he is in. of course maybe then gilly would have held ojha back but you gotta back your best batsman to bat the bulk of the overs. at the moment raina is a 100 times better bat than dhoni.

DC will be chasing a big total looks like.  84 for 1 after 10 is damn good and a perfect platform.

Agreed, except with the "brilliant" part. It was to be expected by everyone (except perhaps Dhoni)  that Ojha, DC's best bowler, would be deployed against him. Dhoni comes across looking like an idiot thrice over. Giving Raina less overs to play after a great start is stupidity. In the last 2 games, he promoted Badri up the order to good effect, and now he is messing with that. He should have left the batting order intact and sent in Raina, followed by Badri and then him. I would even put Albie ahead of Dhoni.

dhoni has severe limitations as a batsman. raina can play both left arm spin and off spin with so much ease. looks like dhoni can play neither.

He mentioned that his own batting has been pathetic and it will need to improve dramatically since CSK's strategy is to score big and contain - they dont have the bowling.

So looks like he is working to a plan.
