0.1 over (0 Run)
Sandeep is on the money! A length ball just outside off, shapes a touch as Curran blocks it towards point.
Right! We are done and dusted with the pre-match formalities and it is time for the action! Both the umpires stride out to the middle and they are followed by Chennai’s openers, Sam Curran and Faf du Plessis! A change in the openers for Chennai. David Warner has got his boys in the huddle near the ropes and sharing some advice with them before they can take their positions in the field. Sandeep Sharma will take the new ball for Hyderabad. Sam Curran to face. Here we go…
Hyderabad (Playing XI) – David Warner (C), Jonny Bairstow (WK), Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Vijay Shankar, Priyam Garg, Shahbaz Nadeem (IN PLACE OF ABHISHEK SHARMA), Rashid Khan, Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed, T Natarajan.
Chennai (Playing XI) – Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (WK/C), Sam Curran, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Piyush Chawla (IN PLACE OF NARAYAN JAGADEESAN), Karn Sharma.
Hyderabad skipper, David Warner, tells that he would’ve batted as well but tells that they have got a good bowling lineup so he is not too disappointed. On their last game, Warner says that the easiest thing to do is forget that game and start afresh. Tells that he is enjoying the captaincy and says that he has got a lot of help around him in the form of Kane Williamson and Bairstow. Informs that Shahbaz Nadeem is playing this game in place of Abhishek Sharma.
The skipper of Chennai, MS Dhoni, starts off by saying that they wanted to bat first and they never got the oppurtunity but they will bat first now. Says that the thing with stats is that you can maneovur it the way you want to. Tells that it is a process and it is much quicker if the boys are ready for it and feels that there are always fresh challenges in every new game. Says that cricket is something that is close to life and it teaches you a lot of things. Adds that there is a single change as Piyush Chawla is back in the playing XI in place of Narayan Jagadeesan. Ends by saying that they thought about including Imran Tahir in this game, but the combinations did not work out in their favor.
TOSS – It is time for the flip of the coin! Both the skippers are out in the middle along with the match referee. Up it goes and it lands in Dhoni’s favor! They will BAT FIRST.
PITCH REPORT – Kevin Pietersen and Michael Slater are out in the middle for the pitch report. Slater starts off by saying that if you do not bowl the perfect yorker, the bowlers might be punished. KP adds that the bowlers have started picking up the wickets. Adds that if you miss your length, then you are going to get tonked. Slater and Pietersen end by saying that it looks like an even contest between ball and bat and that this is going to be another humdinger of a clash.
MS Dhoni-led Chennai have lost 5 games so far and are finding it difficult to get going! They won their first game, lost three, won again and now have lost two in a row. They need some sort of miracle to turn things around. Inconsistent performances with the bat, the ability to win crucial moments with the ball and poor efforts in the field haven’t helped them so far. One thing that will give them some confidence, is the fact that they have had an upper hand over the Orange army in the history of the tournament.
Let’s talk about Hyderabad first. With one more win than Chennai, Hyderabad is sitting on no. 5 in the points spreadsheet. They were pretty close to a convincing victory over Rajasthan in their last game but Rahul Tewatia and Riyan Parag’s heroics meant that two points were taken away from them. They haven’t been able to win matches consistently and would be eager to change that.
Hello and welcome to our coverage of yet another game in the Indian T20 League. We are done with the first half of the tournament! Now, we move to the second! The race on the points table is still an interesting and lively one. The second half is being inaugurated by two southern sides, Hyderabad and Chennai.
