Deccan Chargers Vs Kings XI Punjab at Hyderabad

The Indian Premier League (IPL) : Today the match begins with Kings XI Punjab clashing with Deccan Chargers at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Uppal, Hyderabad. Kings XI Punjab have developed a reputation of being one of the best teams on the road, beating four of the top five teams in away matches. Hope so it will be insteresting to see how deccan react in their home ground.

Kings XI Punjab : The team has ten points from 11 matches, and is still trying to hold on to the ray of hope they have of qualification for the playoffs. They are still waiting on the fitness of their regular captain, Adam Gilchrist, who has missed their previous six matches with hamstring problems. If he is fit in today's game, Kings XI will have a difficult choice to  make  which of their overseas players to leave out.

Shaun Marsh is again expected to be the front man with the bat while Ryan Harris’ four wickets would have given him much-needed confidence as well. zhar Mahmood’s resurgence as an all-rounder cannot be discounted either but captain David Hussey needs to improve his own form before expecting the same from his teammates.

Kings XI Punjab squad : AC Gilchrist(C), P Awana, KJ Abbott, L Ablish, Amit Yadav, Azhar Mahmood, BA Bhatt, Bipul Sharma, PP Chawla, SD Chitnis, BCJ Cutting, P Dogra, JP Faulkner, Gurkeerat Singh, Harmeet Singh, RJ Harris, DJ Hussey, P Kumar, VS Malik, Mandeep Singh, SE Marsh, AD Mascarenhas, DA Miller, AM Nayar, RR Powar, NJ Rimmington, N Saini, SJ Srivastava, Sunny Singh, PC Valthaty

Deccan Chargers : They have been bottom of the pile virtually the entire tournament this year, His batting perfomance is greatin IPL so far. Cameron White and Shikhar Dhawan spearheading the batting effort but it is the bowlers who need to respond wellin the whole IPL. Dhawan is the leading run scorer of Deccan Chargers.

Chargers' fielding has let them down all tournament, reflected by the fact that they have the least number of catches among all teams this year. His bowling attack is so poor. Team hit 170, 180 but their bowlers gave freely runs to the batsmen of other teammates.Dale Steyn’s 22-run over ruined it for them as four of their bowlers yielded runs at ten runs per over or higher.
