Preview: DC vs KKR

IPL 3

DECCAN CHARGERS VS KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS

Venue: DY Patil Stadium, Navi Mumbai ( Neutral Venue )

Date : 12th March 2010 ( 8pm onwards )

TEAM DC:

The Deccan Chargers camp is filled with full of batting starrs. Gilchrist and Gibbs will lead the team by opening the innings. Rohit Sharma, Andrew Symonds will be given the responsibility to look after the middle order. Venugopal Rao, Ravi Teja and T Suman will be around the two middle order batsmen. The power pack batting will totally contrast over the bowling of the team. Kemar Roach won’t be available for the first match. RP Singh has not done well in the Indian soil. A lot will be expected from Pragyan Ojha who will be favored with the Indian soil to turn the ball.

TEAM KKR:

KKR was the team in 2009 like DC was in 2008. Its the same situation. DC changed their jerseys and picked the cup. KKR too now has changed the jersey. Hope they follow the footsteps of KKR. It is expected that Brad Hodge will open with Ganapathy Vignesh, the former ICL star. Ganguly will take care of the No.3 spot. Other players will be around these batsmen. Owais Shah will be given the responsibility of the middle order. Shukla, Tiwary and others will be around him. Ishant Sharma and Varun Aaron, the Jharkand pacer will open the bowling for Kolkata Knight Riders.

PITCH:

The soil is obviously brought from the South African land. So, you can expect a lot for the batsmen and if bowlers bent their back, will hit the timber.

KEY PLAYERS:

DC:-

Adam Gilchrist: The Captain of the Chargers will have a lot of responsibility on his shoulders. He will lead the team from the front and score a lot.

Pragyan Ojha: The spinner will turn the ball in the Indian pitches and trouble the batsmen as IPL is back in India. With no other key bowler, Ojha has to lead from the front.

KKR:-

Sourav Ganguly: He is back as the Captain of the team and will have a lot of pressure to perform. He is capable of playing the long and steady innings.

Bradley Hodge: The Australian batsman is in fine form always and is to open the innings.
