Deccan Chargers Vs Royal Challengers DLF IPL IV, Hyd-April 14, 2011

 

About The Event

Host Deccan Chargers will take on Royal Challengers in the 11th match of the DLF IPL series at its home town, Hyderabad on April 14, 2011. Scheduled for 8 pm (IST), the match will be highly exciting particularly for the locals who will be wishing their team to win after the two defeats it already had in the present session. Both the teams are being led by two highly experienced captains - Royal Challengers by Daniel Vettori and Deccan Chargers by Kumar Sangakkara. Certainly with such captains, the contest is not going to be an easy one for either team.

The Deccan team: Deccan Chargers may not be as strong as the Royal Challengers with its team line-up - at least on the paper. The team may not have still come out of the defeat against Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders. Though they managed to give a stiff competition in both the matches, the performance was not good enough to clinch the winning title. However, considering the margin of loss, one can expect the team to come back in the show with little additional effort on its team line-up.

With batsmen like Cameron White, Kevin Peterson and Chris Lynn and bowlers like Ishant Sharma, Dale Styn and Pragyan Ojha, the team has every fair chance to score better in the upcoming matches.

The Bangalore team: Royal Challengers on the other hand has a comparatively powerful bundle of batsman and bowlers. In its first match, the way it overpowered the debutant Kochi Tuskers is highly commendable. The greatest strength of the team is if the batsmen fail to put up a tough target for the other team, the pressure can be conveniently shifted on the experienced bowlers who can lead the team to a prosperous win.

With batsmen like Dilshan, Villiers and Kaif and bowlers like Zaheer Khan, Mithun and Langeveldt, the team has better prospects of winning the upcoming match against the Deccan Chargers. However, with the ball game, nothing can be predicted for sure and one may see the unexpected happening at any point of time. Besides, it is too early to tag Deccan Chargers as a weak team owing to the brilliant performances it had given in the last season.
