Brisbane Heats have lost most of its utility players owing to several reasons – Shane Watson, Mitchell Johnson, Thisara Perera [opted to play for IPL Teams], Daniel Vettori [Injury] and Luke Pomersbach [Personal Reasons]. On the other hand, Trinidad & Tobago has suffered losses in the form of Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard. Yet, both of these teams have its share of domestic talents and some international names. Players to watch out for: Daniel Christian [Brisbane Heats] : The fancied all-rounder has a good experience of the subcontinent wickets having played for the Deccan Chargers in the 2012 season. Sunil Narine [Trinidad & Tobago]: Sunil Narine got a name for himself in the Champions League 2011 and then went on to play for Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2012 where he dominated the bowling statistics and was awarded the Player of the series. The knack of bowling economically and providing wickets at regular intervals will be very valuable in this format. Match 02: Chennai Super Kings vs. Titans: cskvstitans Venue: JSCA Stadium, Ranchi Time: 08:00PM IST In the second match of the night at Ranchi, Chennai Super Kings are ensured to receive home support even though they are not playing at Chennai, since it’s the skipper’s home town. Having a huge fan base, CSK has a tremendous pressure to perform well and they are one of the best T20 franchises around the world who have the ability to beat any team on the given day. 19180 Entering the IPL 2013 Knockout stages as a clean favourite, Chennai Super Kings crushed Mumbai Indians in the Qualifier game but only to be hunted down later by them in the finals. The Chennai side has all of its departments balanced and it’s all about how they perform on the field. Titans on the other side have the bowling department to control the opponents from scoring freely and also the batting power headed by AB DE Villiers to chase down huge targets. It will be an equally fought battle. Players to watch out for: Suresh Raina [Chennai Super Kings]: The left hander batsman has the ability of taking away of the game from the opponents in a matter of minutes. A reputed T20 batsman, he will be looking forward to give a good start alongside Mike Hussey and if he settles in, he can dismantle any bowling side. 16005 Ravindra Jadeja [Chennai Super Kings]: The number one ODI allrounder is in form of his career and he will be the lethal weapon for Mahendra Singh Dhoni. AB DE Villiers [Titans]: Having a wide knowledge about the sub-continent wickets, Abraham Benjamin De Villiers will be the Key man for the Titans. He needs to shuffle his batting position according to the situation and the ability to finish the game single handedly is a blessing. It will be tough time for every sport lover, switching to watch the EPL Games, Singapore Grand Prix and the Champions League games
