Chennai Super Kings vs NSW Champions League T20 do-or-die game this evening
Chennai Super Kings vs. New South Wales final group 'A' game in the Champion League T20 will start from 8:00 pm tonight at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium. CSK needs a big victory to make it to the semi final of the CLT20 2011.
In group 'A' of Champion League Cricket 2011, Chennai Super Kings is at the bottom place with two points and a net run rate of -0.181. In this group, Mumbai
Indians is on the top with five points, whereas NSW, Cape Cobras and Trinidad & Tobago are on the second to fourth place with four, three and two points each respectively.
Today, if either Cobras or NSW were to lose, Mumbai will automatically qualify for the semi final of the Champions League T20
2011, whereas NSW, CSK and T&T will be tied together at four points, bringing in the net run rate to decide on the second semi-finalist from Group A.
In the Champion League T20 Cricket 2011, none of Chennai Super Kings batsman has gone past 50 runs apart from Michael Hussey. However, the team has many match winners in the squad including Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Michael Hussey, Suresh Raina, Dwayne Bravo, Albie Morkel, Doug Bollinger, and R. Ashwin. They have the calibre to set an impossible target for the opponent, whereas the bowlers can take quick wickets and win the game by a huge margin.
In the do-or-die match for the CSK in the Champion League Cricket T20 2011, Dhoni should ask Ashwin to start bowling with the new ball because NSW openers Shane Watson
and David Warner have not showed their skill till yet against slow bowling. Dhoni can also use Suresh Raina as an opener with Hussey because NSW bowling has been steady and economical in the tournament and he should come at the no. 1 slot.
