The Chennai Super Kings will face Royal Challengers Bangalore today in the Indian Premier Match played at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore 25 April 2012 – day/night (20-over match).
This would be the 34th match of the IPL 2012. The match will be live on Set Max from 8pm onwards.
While talking to media, CSK bowling coach Andy Bichel said, “Since RCB‘s batting looks heavy at top of the order fully packed with overseas players, I think it will come down to a nail-biting over and hope we can win this (type of a game) again. It will be a high-scoring game as the history of Chinnaswamy wicket speaks thus.”
He said, “Yes, it`s a challenge for us coming here and playing at RCB‘s home territory. They are a good side and there will be momentum.”
Andy Bichel said, “We certainly have plans for all RCB players. We will devise a plan with bowlers and hopefully it comes off. A small window of opportunity (we should grab) and that is the thing about Twenty20.”
