Chennai Super Kings Vs Pune Warriors

Chennai Super Kings Vs Pune Warriors Live Streaming

The Pune Warriors led by Sourav Ganguly has got a better start to their IPL campaign this year when compared to last year. They clinched wins in their first two matches followed by a loss against Kings XI Punjab. The only problem likely for this team is the lack of ability to score big totals while batting first. Meanwhile Chennai Super Kings looked out of form initially but they surprised everyone by chasing a mammoth 205 against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

The Pune Warriors were enjoying their wins before they were comprehensively beaten by Punjab in the 12th match of IPL 2012. They take on Chennai at their home ground Subrata Roy Sahara stadium in Pune and this should be an advantage for them. Ganguly finally looked in a good touch in the last match and he should carry forward the momentum in this match. His teammates and well known batsmen Ryder, Samuels and Uthappa should click in this match if they have to win against the defending champions Chennai. 

Ashok Dinda has been very impressive for Pune Warriors. He has the support of Ashish Nehra and Rahul Sharma. Pune should not pitch in 8 batsmen because that results in a bowler short. Murali Karthik should get an opportunity.

Chennai Super Kings were comprehensively outbeaten by Delhi Daredevils but we all know how hard Chennai can bounce back. Chasing 205 was just like pulling a rabbit out of the hat! Faf du Plessis laid the foundation of this chase; Dhoni and Morkel completed the winning cause. They have other hard hitting batsmen like Murali Vijay, Bravo and highest run scorer in IPL viz. Suresh Raina.

Chennai's bowling unit failed miserably against Bangalore giving away 205 runs in 20 overs. But overall they are one of the best bowlers in the league. With the likes of Bollinger, Bravo, Morkel, Ashwin, Jadeja and Jakati; Dhoni would always feel comfortable.

Pitch here has a slow nature and probably would suit the spinners more than the quickies. So no wonder if both the teams pitch in atleast two specialist spinners. Chennai looks favourite for this match and they may pull in a comfortable win in Pune.
