Champions League - RCB and CSK show their strengths

CSK started their tournament with a convincing win, setup by Badrinath, Srikkanth and the bowlers. They look a good strong all-round team that is capable of meeting any team. Even in this match, the batsmen overcame a weak start to post a total that was equal to the average score on this ground. The opposition team's inexperience against high-class bowling was exposed very quickly. Only complaint was that MS Dhoni did not come up the order in place of Aniruddha but flu was supposed to be the reason (as per Fleming). There will be tougher matches to come but CSK has the firepower to go all the way.

Similarly, RCB started yesterday with a crushing win against the Carribean Unit led by Ramnaresh Sarwan. Kumble's team was too powerful while bowling with the attack of Steyn, Kallis and the spinners. Similarly, while batting, there was too much power at the start for any Guyanese bowler to make a impact. The only differences between RCB and CSK is the larger tail of RCB. There is not much batting to come after Cameron White - Akhil and Praveen Kumar are the batsmen penciled there - a little too dicey for their comfort. Manish Pandey's inclusion will be definitely on the cards for the next match.
