Live Cricket Score : IPL 2012 - Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders (Match 41)

Daijiworld Media Network

Chennai, Apr 30 : Hello and welcome to the encounter between Chennai and Kolkata at the Chepauk. The visitors are currently at second place and have been playing some good cricket in the tournament so far. Chennai on the other hand have had a patchy tournament and have failed to use the home advantage to its full potential. The hosts will hope that today can be different though and will be eager to get back to winning ways. Kolkata on the other hand might just like the pitch, as it is quite similar to the surface they have at home. With that in mind it must be said that this game will see two evenly matched sides lock horns and predicting a winner might be as tough as performing a root canal surgery. Stay with us as we will have the toss coming up shortly

Chennai Super Kings have won the toss and elected to bat

Gambhir: Whatever has happened in the past is the past and I don't think that we can't win today, we have the quality to do it. We are pretty fortunate that Sunil Narine plays for us because we certainly don't want to bat against him. I bat wherever the team needs me most, if I feel the team benefits if I open, then I will. We have a good side and we have chased well earlier so we are pretty happy with what we do. The side is unchanged for today.

Dhoni: Well of course, we do need a win here. We don't want to lag behind, because when you look at the table the top four teams are quite close to each other on points. You want to be with most of the sides on the table because if you lag behind too much, then it could be difficult to come back. Michael Hussey comes back in today so Kulasekara misses out and Yo Mahesh replaces Saha. It looks like a good wicket, we will look to put up some runs on the board. I think Hussey is brilliant, the body language and attitude he has on the field is really good. He really lifts the fielding.

Bravo: There's great support for us in every game that we play in India, which is supposed to be the home of cricket. We are still in a good position and we are aiming at finishing in the top four and taking it from there. Obviously we are lucky enough to get Hussey to join us. This is a must win game for us, it's a very important game.
