In the second match of the day, Deccan Chargers will start their campaign against the defending champions Chennai Super Kings. The Super Kings have already lost a match and will be hoping to get some points against their name. The Super Kings had a very bad day against Mumbai Indians as they were outplayed in every department by their opponents.

The Deccan Chargers will look to start their tournament with a win but it will be tough for them as some of their international players are busy playing for their national side including their skipper Kumar Sangakkara. The Chargers will know that they will have to play well to get the result in their favour. The crowd will have a lot to look forward to in this match as there are some great players who will take the field for their respective side. Let’s have a look at some of the players who can bring glory to their side.

Deccan Chargers

Cameron White:
The explosive Australian will captain the Chargers in the absence of Sangakkara. White is a big hitter and he is the player on which the Deccan team depends heavily. White is a very good hitter against spin bowling and will play a vital role in the middle part of their innings. The Aussie can clear any ground with ease and the Super Kings will know it very well that they will have to get White out of their way to get to the desired result.

Jean-Paul Duminy:
Duminy is a regular member of the South African T20 team and is a very capable player. Duminy is very effective in rotating the strike and can hit some lusty blows whenever required. He is very effective in the end overs as he has the talent of picking the gaps. Duminy has played some special T20 innings and Deccan will be hoping that he can play some good innings now. He is also a very smart off-spinner with a good action and can be very effective.

Dale Steyn:
The number one Test bowler in the world will take the new ball for the Chargers. Steyn is a very talented bowler and is already considered to be one of the best fast bowlers in the history of cricket. He is a genuine swing bowler and bowls at a rapid space. Steyn is yet to prove his worth in IPL and will be raring to go. Steyn can bowl some match changing spells and will be a threat to any batting line-up.

Amit Mishra:
He may be struggling to get a place in the national team but he is a force when it comes to IPL. He is one of the highest wicket takers in the history of IPL and is one of the most sought out bowler. Mishra is a genuine wicket taker and has the ability to induce batsmen into playing wrong shots. He can bowl some big leg-breaks and is a tough bowler to hit out of the ground.

Chennai Super Kings:

Suresh Raina:
Raina was the only batsmen who looked good against Mumbai Indians. He played some good shots and was looking in good form. Raina is one of the best players when it comes to T20 cricket and once again Chennai’s hope will be lying on him. Raina has all the abilities to play an explosive innings and is considered as one of the most dangerous player in the world.

MS Dhoni:
Dhoni got himself run-out in their match against Mumbai Indians and opposition captain Harbhajan Singh said that Dhoni’s run-out was the turning point as Dhoni being there would have meant that they had to chase 40 more runs. This is how important his wicket is. He is the most consistent player when it comes to the shorter versions of the game. Dhoni can make a difference in the matter of few deliveries and can be brutal in the death overs.

Doug Bollinger:
The Aussie fast bowler bowled a fierce spell to the Mumbai Indian batters. He got Rohit Sharma out and he is the reason why Sachin missed a match. He bowled some nasty deliveries and was looking the most threatening bowler on display for the Mumbai Indians. He will once again be the bowler to watch out for.

R Ashwin:
Ashwin was not that effective in the last match as Richard Levi took the attack on him and hit him for runs. Ashwin by no stretch of imagination will get affected by that and will once again lead the spin bowling department for the Super Kings. He is very important for Chennai as with his control and variation he has proven out to be one of the biggest match winners for the Chennai team.
