MS Dhoni, Chennai’s captain, says that for a surprise they won’t be bowling first. On this year’s performance, Dhoni believes there are quite a few reasons for it. States that they had a camp in Chennai and one in Dubai after landing, the latter made the former irrelevant. In play, Dhoni reckons that the players have not performed well in certain phases. On the changes, Dhoni says that they have 3 changes and chuckles that he has to remember 6 names. Watson, Chawla and Jadhav miss out and in their place Jagadeesan, Gaikwad and Tahir come in.
Kieron Pollard, Mumbai’s captain in the absence of Rohit Sharma due to injury, says they will field first. Reason being that he believes it will be easier batting second. On whether being in the top 2 positions in the table is a big motivation, Pollard says it definitely is. On the Super Over game last, double Super Over in fact, Pollard states that they are not thinking too much about that. Pollard hopes that Rohit Sharma can comeback soon and lead the side. On the changes, he informs that Rohit Sharma, the regular skipper, misses out. Saurabh Tiwary comes in his place.
Toss – The two captains are out in the middle. The match referee gives the coin some air. It lands in Mumbai’s favour. THEY WILL FIELD!
Pitch Report – Murali Kartik is out in the middle with Kumar Sangakkara. The latter states that the spinners need to slide it low and make it skiddy on this track for the batsmen to make it hard to play. Sangakkara further adds that death bowling becomes very critical after the new ball. Given the conditions, both of them reckon that the side winning the toss would want to bat first.
Even if they do that, a lot of other pieces have to work in their favour. Mumbai meanwhile would be relishing on listening to all this. They were handed a loss in the tournament opener by Dhoni’s men and the roads hence for the two sides have been very divergent. Now, Rohit’s men are presented with the opportunity of sending the Lion back. A perfect way to make even the loss earlier. What will happen? Stay tuned as we bring you the toss and the team updates…
Chennai’s skipper was lost for words during the presser after the loss against Rajasthan. He kept harping on the ‘process’ that he believes in and how it went wrong, besides, taking an unsavoury jibe against the younger lot. Fleming meanwhile remarked that the side has ‘run out of juice’. How Chennai will come out of the mental drain and do what they need to do from their end – win all their remaining games, remains to be seen.
Right then, back to Sharjah after a long time. And we have 2 champion sides…err… should we say just 1 maybe? Well, for the headlines it is El Clasico Round 2 but we all know how one-sided this fixture could be. Especially when a team’s captain and coach themselves concede how disappointing this campaign has been…
