PITCH REPORT – Daren Ganga and JP Duminy are out for the pitch report. Ganga says that it is the same pitch that was used yesterday. Says that the square boundaries and the boundaries down the ground are on the shorter length. Adds that it looks a lot drier than it was yesterday and that the bounce will be a little uneven. JP says that the shorter deliveries have been successful and as a batter, your batting on the square side has to be good. Adds that the middle period is the most important thinking point as to how to add runs in that period. Ganga says that 167 is the average score on this ground.
There is a big milestone for MS Dhoni! This will be his 200th game in the Indian T20 League and he becomes the first player to reach this feat. What a proud achievement for a player who has been there since the start of the League and is still standing strong, despite him being retired from the international arena. Will he celebrate this feat with a victory?
