The Chargers captain had a tough task rallying his troops together after a bad start, but two wins against Pune Warriors seem to have opened the doors for the Hyderabad team. “First of all, I must say what a good side Super Kings are. They have great combination in both batting and bowling. First thing is that I got to be realistic about it. According to that, if we do play well as we know we can and do our bowling according to the strategies, we can win against any team in the tournament.
“Added to that, if we field to our capabilities to hundred percent, we can challenge any side. That is the beauty of T20 cricket. Things change very quickly and if the opposition makes mistakes, we need to cash in on that to win the match.”
Meanwhile, ahead of today’s game against Deccan Chargers, Chennai bowling coach Andy Bichel admitted the players have not come up to expectations, but the focus remains on winning the competition.
Target is final
“Ours is a good enough team to win this tournament. The challenge for us is to going into the final and it is the hardest part. Michael Hussey and Ben Hilfenhaus coming into the squad could probably change a few things. “Mike has been a big contributor during last year edition. Ben had a long season and still looking for it,” Bichel said
