Parameter Summary Deccan Chargers Delhi Daredevils
Form Guide Deccan have the momentum L-W-W- W-W-L-L
Bowling DC: 3,  DD : 2.5 Vaas looks excellent all around. RP and Ohja got skinned during the end overs, the need to improve on that. Clone Nannes. Seriously though, Maharoof, Mishra have been huge letdowns so far.  Sangwan needs to grow up soon, and was quite abyssmal in the last over agaisnt Chennai.   Bhatia too was disappointing in  his 2 overs.  Go with Nannes. Stick with Yadav , at least he has some speed. Mishra retains his spot, but try out Sarandeep for Ladda.
Deccan with the slight advantage
Batting DD: 3 , DD: 2.5 Gilly looks in great touch, but if he can stick around a little longer, DC can easily increase their scores.  With Laxman gone, Venu will probably get a look in , and perhaps Rohit can open the batting. AB and Dilshan have been tourists so far. Time for one of them to sit and get someone like Henriques in. Warner and Viru at the top, with KKD , Manhas  next. Demote Dilshan or AB down the order instead of sending them so high up to face the likes of Vaas. Both might fare better against the slower bowlers and spinners.
Deccan with the advantage
Strategies If Viru goes, DD gets under immense pressure. Throw everything AND the kitchen sink at him. Vaas’s slower pace and guile should help.  Also get Ohja to try out an over within the PP to move the ball away from the likes of Gibbs, Viru.  While batting, promote Sharma up the order to see if he fares any better. His form is imperative for the latter stages. Venugopal comes in for Laxman, and this could actually be a blessing for them, for Venu is a hard hitter. Out of AB/Dilshan, sit one down and demote the other down the order. KKD and Manhas have been in fair touch, so playing more overs might help. Get Henriques in as the other foreign player.  Vaas is best suited against Gilly, so that might help.
Prediction DD arrests the skid, and steals one Gilly fails this one, and the lower order might not be able to handle it. Dilshan/AB come to the party , and help DD win it.
