The pitch at the stadium in Hyderabad is batting friendly with even bounce. The flat track assists good shot making and playing through the line.

The Ranchi pitch has been slow and low. Teams batting second have found modest chases turning slippy due to the progressive slowness of the pitch and increasing turn on offer. CSK have played 2 matches at Ranchi so far and have won them both rather convincingly thanks to aggressive clean hitting by Dwayne Smith at the top.

“He is a great limited-overs player, but his confidence was low. I know the situation well as I played for 20 years at the highest level. I knew it was just a matter of helping him regain his confidence,” said the Sri Lankan spin legend to iplt20.com.
Yuvraj Singh has already been a central figure in winning two World Cups for India and Muralitharan feels that he could repeat the feat. “I honestly think Yuvi has still got it and India should look after him because I feel he will play a big role in the 2015 World Cup. He will be India’s match-winner there,” he said.
