Crucial match tomorrow
We've slid to number four slot now. And we share that we two more teams. Baring Punjab and Chargers all the rest of the teams are very closely contesting for the semis berth.
Unlike Punjab, DC hasn't been knocked out as yet. That makes tomorrows match all the more crucial.
A win means
a. We will look strong for the semis spot again
b. Deccan chargers will slide down reducing the competition
Dravid, Pandey opening the innings makes a lot of sense but I think we should stick to Kallis + Pandey since it has worked for us. There is no time for experiments now!
One strategy change could be that Kallis plays a little more agressively. And we can have RD come down if he gets out early or if too many wickets fall to early. The fact that we haven't really needed a second anchor (except for the loosener against KKR) in any of our matches makes me think so.
Steyn should be brought back (strange that we do not have any overseas alternatives in the bowling dept) KP or White can make way for him. Mithun wasn't looking good, Unfortunately he got a rather slow delhi pitch first up.
From DC, I expect Vaas to make a return.
Beer on me if we win!
