Bangalore look to upset the neighbours
14 May 2009, 4:44 am



Match facts

May 14, 2009

Start time 12.30 (10.30 GMT, 16.00 IST)

Big Picture



Matthew Hayden has been the battering ram for Chennai Super Kings

Associated Press

Bangalore Royal Challengers' flagging campaign may have been boosted by the win over Kolkata Knight Riders but their chances of making the semi-finals remain slim. Their remaining three matches are all against tough opposition: Chennai Super Kings, Deccan Chargers and Delhi Daredevils. The main worry for them remains the inconsistent batting, particularly as they cannot expect to continue getting the freebies the generous Kolkata bowlers doled out to them.

Their first challenge is to end the winning streak of the Chennai, who after an indifferent start have strung together five successes in a row. To achieve that, they need to find a way to throttle the marauding Chennai top order: Matthew Hayden, Suresh Raina, S Badrinath and MS Dhoni have combined to ensure totals of at least 160 in each of the seven matches they batted first.

Dhoni, who was critical of his team's bowlers earlier in the season, will have little to complain about now. Albie Morkel has been providing breakthroughs in the first over, Muttiah Muralitharan has proven hard to get away and the Indian contingent of L Balaji, Shadab Jakati and Sudeep Tyagi is also firing. A win against Bangalore will push Chennai to the brink of a final four slot - they will remain in second place but will have at least a two-point cushion over the chasing pack.

Form guide (completed matches, most recent first)

Royal Challengers Bangalore - WLLWW

After two demoralising defeats the win against Kolkata was the boost Bangalore needed. Problems persist though. The batting has been let down by the poor showing of the domestic batsmen with Robin Uthappa and Virat Kohli being particularly disappointing. The bowling at the death was clueless against a resourceful Brendon McCullum and needs improving, especially against a side like Chennai, where it is standing-room only when it comes to savage hitters.

Chennai Super Kings - WWWWW

With a form guide that couldn't get any better, Chennai are bursting with confidence having toppled dangerous opponents like Delhi , Rajasthan Royals and Deccan in their recent matches. The only area of concern during their four-day break would have been the fielding, with several catches going down in every match.

Watch out for

Ross Taylor: The relentless power-hitting during his onslaught against Kolkata was the breath of fresh air Bangalore needed, given that their line-up is packed with orthodox batsmen not renowned for clearing the boundary. Bangalore's progress in the tournament depends on how well Taylor fares against better attacks in the remaining games.

Albie Morkel: Regarded by some as the leading Twenty20 allrounder in the world, he has been adequate with the ball but hasn't found top gear yet with the bat. He had wowed the Chennai crowd with several hits clearing the roof of the Chepauk stadium last season and a return to form will strengthen an already fearsome line-up.

Team news

The big score continues to elude Jesse Ryder, but his frugal medium-pace bowling and the solid opening stand with Jacques Kallis against Kolkata should provide him another opportunity. B Akhil could make way for Praveen Kumar which will also give the side more batting depth.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (probable) 1 Jesse Ryder, 2 Jacques Kallis, 3 Robin Uthappa, 4 Rahul Dravid, 5 Ross Taylor, 6 Virat Kohli/Rajesh Bishnoi, 7 Mark Boucher (wk), 8 Praveen Kumar, 9 R Vinay Kumar, 10 Anil Kumble (capt), 11 KP Appanna/ Bhuvneshwar Kumar

Chennai are unlikely to make changes to a combination that served them well against Rajasthan Royals on Saturday.

Chennai Super Kings (probable) 1 Matthew Hayden, 2 M Vijay, 3 Suresh Raina, 4 S Badrinath, 5 MS Dhoni (capt & wk), 6 Albie Morkel, 7 Jacob Oram, 8 Sudeep Tyagi, 9 Shadab Jakati, 10 L Balaji, 11 Muttiah Muralitharan.

Head-to-head record

Chennai outclassed Bangalore when the two sides met earlier this season in Port Elizabeth, thumping them by 92 runs, the largest margin of victory in the tournament so far. The teams split their two contests last year: Bangalore caving in spectacularly at the Chinnaswamy Stadium to lose by 13 runs, Chennai returning the favour at Chepauk to go down by 14 runs.

I think BRC will now win this game.

So now Chennai will be in the mix with the rest.

It makes for a thrilling finish to the IPL.

Imagine RR winning later.  That will make it a virtual dead lock.

128 all out.

So Chennai will lose this one and make the race more interesting.

Let us see where this takes us to.

UUU or Useless Uttappa is pound for pound the most useless of them all.  He does not have what it takes to succeed at the next level.  They need to cut this guy loose.   It is a shame he gets to make so much money for so less.  Perhaps an UUU clause needs to be incorporated into all contracts hereforth where in money has to be returned if certain obligations as a player are not met.

CSK going for the choke award. They are pretty much out of this match. They only have to loose against KKR next.

While Taylor has done in last match, but I don't think BRC should let the RRR climb.
It is over 8 currently.  One good over and the ask becomes tough.
After that all they need is to hold onto catch hurled by Taylor.
While I type this Kohli hits a six to get the RRR under 8

Oram is a weak link in the bowling. I dont remember him having even one good match with the ball in this IPL.

Has Raina bowled yet?

16 balls , 23 runs , 4 wickets : On paper seems easy.
Let us find what happens on field. Raina has not yet bowled.

KIC delivered  :icon_thumleft:


Oram to Akhil, OUT, smart catch from Tyagi! Oram gets Akhil with a short ball, he slogs at top edges and Tyagi, running in from third man, dives superbly and clutches the steepler as it dies in front of him ... its moments like these, and Oram's earlier catch, will really matter in such situations 
 B Akhil c Tyagi b Oram 0 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Taylor will finish this off. Even Praveen can connect the odd one.

And when he hits them, they stay hit (this one is for the commentary thread)

5 in 6 balls. They should really win it from here. Else it would be a shame.

But that keeps the tournament tight.
