Champions League Twenty20 Finals: Preview: MI or RCB?

I would call it a balanced game with both teams having equal chances in the final of CLT20 that is to be played in Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium on 9th Oct 2011. All credits go to the Mumbai Indian Coach Robin Singh for enabling the underdogs to reach finals of the game. Having so many good players out of the team including Sachin Tendulkar due to various injuries and other reasons, Mumbai Indians had least chances of reaching to the finals of the game.

Credit also go to all players who played well in a great united manner to act as an enabler for each other and brought the team to finals. All eyes will be on Kieron Pollard to play a big game and score some bounty runs. The danger man Lasith Malinga is also able to move the direction of any match as he did in the semis against Somerset. Somerset were seen all set to cross the target of 261 and win the game when Malinga clean bowled four of their batsmen to turn it around.

Royal Challengers Bangalore can not be treated as any less than MIs. Chris Gayle is the man who has all powers to win game under any circumstances. Dirk Nannes, Saurabh Tiwary, Md Kaif, Virat Kohli; all are able to play big games. The RCB coach Ray Jennings would definitely be making some last moment strategies with his team on how to tackle each of the MI player in finals.

Looking at the pitch of Chennai, the team that wins the toss should first go for batting as there will be good help to bowlers in the second innings. Winning the toss and taking the right decision would be an advantageous factor.
