Chennai Super Kings vs Kings XI Punjab – Semi Final 2 – Hyderabad – October 2

Raina ! Dhoni ! Smith ! Jaddu ! Viru ! Miller ! Maxwell ! Bailey ! The names of

these giants symbolize a terrific emblem of excitement. Oh Yesss !!! Hyderabad ,

Are you ready for this double header !!! Today these two monsters will be

challenging each other in Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad. Mostly

Chennai Super Kings will be the favourites in this venue as they hold a very

good past record. But on the other hand Kings XI Punjab will be ready to thrash

their exceptions. Last time when these two teams played, Sehwag scored a ton,

followed by a sparkling innings from Raina (87 off 25 balls).


So far the tournament is concerned, Kings XI Punjab will have an advantage as

they have won all their games and have topped the table against the mighty

Hobarts, Barbados, Cobras and the Knights. Though none of the players proved

to be the stand out , still they managed a four on four wins in the league stage.

The Indian youngsters are proving their worth especially Akshar Patel and

Karanveer Singh with the ball. The lights of Sehwag, Miller, Maxwell and Bailey

are encouraging the young talents like Manan Vohra to prove their worth in the



On the other hand, Dhoni’s men will be all ready to showcase their talent against

the team from Punjab. Batting will be their main strength so they would like to

chase a particular target rather than defending it. Raina is all set to fire again

against the inexperienced bowling attack. Ashwin will be the key to CSK’s bowling

against a batting line up which is known for its mighty hitting.


The stadium will be really electrifying. The crowd will be expecting a bang for the

buck. Lets hope that the best team qualifies to the semis.
