Chennai Super Kings lost their opening encounter of the 2014 Champions League Twenty20 against Kolkata Knight Riders while Dolphins got the same fate when Perth Scorchers won on the last ball of the match. Both losing teams will be anticipating their opening points of the tournament but they can end up with two each as weather will most probably ruin the game.
The skipper of the Chennai Super Kings, MS Dhoni, along with Dwayne Bravo shared an unbeaten partnership of 71 for the fifth wicket against Kolkata Knight Riders. They occupied the crease with 35 and 28 while Dwayne Smith, Brendon McCullum, Suresh Raina and Faf du Plessis can play positive knocks in the event. Ashish Nehra was their supreme bowler with four wickets whereas Mohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin can be dangerous.
Khaya Zondo scored a fifty for Dolphins in their previous match but their top order batting should contribute useful runs. Kyle Abbott, Kraig Alexander, Robbie Frylinck and Cameron Delport bowled reasonably well.
Monday, September 22, 2014 @ 14:30 GMT, 20:00 local at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore.
Prediction of thunderstorm and severe weather with temperatures around 21-30ᵒC.
