Champions League Twenty20, 10th Match, Group B: Chennai Super Kings v Sunrisers Hyderabad at Ranchi, Sep 26, 2013
Champions League Twenty20 - 10th match, Group B
Chennai Super Kings won by 12 runs
26 September 2013 - night match (20-over match)

Mike Hussey and M Vijay have walked out and will face none other than Dale Steyn. Two slips in place, here we go…

Tony: "Major weak-link of Sunrisers is their Indian batsmen, as they don't have any, except Dhawan. Vihari is too slow a batsman for a T20 game with his strike-rate of about 80%."

Umesh: "CSK needs another 180 plus score. More than that will be bonus and less than that will be a fighting score. 60-40 still in favour of CSK."

JimmyA: "A good toss to win no doubt, but CSK are far too strong to dismiss based on this alone. That said, I will be rooting for Shikhar's Sunrisers!"

Apoorvagj: "CSK losing the toss has evened out the contest for me. Batting second, there is no way CSK could have lost with players like Hussey, Raina and Dhoni."

Toss has played a major role in this tournament. Do you think CSK are strong enough to win after batting first or have Sunrisers won half the match already?

Toss Sunrisers have won the toss and will bowl first. Both the teams are unchanged from their previous matches.

Shikhar Dhawan: We'll bowl because there will be dew later on, which will be hard for the bowlers. It will give us an advantage. The qualifiers helped a lot as it helped the team gel together and playing three matches went good for us. CSK are one of the best teams and we want to win this game.

MS Dhoni: I would have fielded because of dew as it was in the last match here. There's not much pressure playing on my home ground because when you are a part of the Indian team, every ground is a home town for you because of the love and affection. Now with an international stadium here, I can spend some time here. We got a fantastic start in the first match, most of our players didn't get much practice earlier because of rains. Our bowlers did a good job with the wet ball and Suresh Raina and Hussey battle very well. I just changed my hairstyle because my hairdresser was in town so I just sat on the chair and have never seen the mirror again.

CSK XI: M Hussey, M Vijay, S Raina, S Badrinath, Dwayne Bravo, MS Dhoni, R Jadeja, A Morkel, J Holder, R Ashwin, M Sharma.

Sunrisers XI: S Dhawan, P Patel, JP Duminy, T Perera, D Sammy, H Vihari, A Reddy, K Sharma, A Mishra, D Steyn, I Sharma.

7.20pm Hello there and welcome to the 10th match of the Champions League, this one between two IPL sides: Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad. Both won their first games but CSK are at the top of the Group B table because of their run rate. About 10 minutes for the toss, here's the preview from Kanishkaa.
