Chance for Chennai to build upon win
X
Having pulled off a dramatic win in their last match, an in-form Chennai Super Kings will look to consolidate their position as they gear up to lock horns with laggards Pune Warriors in the Indian Premier League (IPL) here tomorrow.

Starting their campaign in the sixth edition of the tournament with a loss, Chennai seemed to have got their mojo back after posting back-to-back wins, including last night’s victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore, in a nail-biting finish.

On the other hand, Pune have already suffered three losses in four outings, their only win coming over Rajasthan Royals.

Two-time winners Chennai are placed fourth in the points table with as many points while Pune Warriors are lying low in the eighth position with two points in the nine-team T20 league.

With Pune still struggling to come to terms, the match at the M A Chidambaram Stadium will be an opportunity for Chennai to head north in the table.

The hosts have the resources in abundance, in both batting and bowling, and it will be interesting to see what strategy Pune employ against the side led by India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

With Mike Hussey and Murali Vijay at the top, Chennai have a formidable opening pair at their disposal. And the best part, from the home side’s point of view is, both are in good nick.

Considering the format, the middle-order is full of talent and experience, with the presence of Suresh Raina, Subramaniam Badrinath and Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
