TOSS | Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni wins the toss, opts to bat against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Dubai
Captains at the toss:
MS Dhoni:“We’re batting first. Yes, for a change. Last few games we wanted to bat first, but never got the opportunity. The thing with stats is that you can get it any way you want to. It’s a process and it’s quicker if the guys buy into it, and follow the process. As I said, each game will have new problems. Today it will be about how we counter the shorter boundary on one side. Cricket is very close to life and it doesn’t always go the way you want. It teaches you what you want to follow as a process. 2010 ended on a happy note but we can’t just rely on that. One change – Chawla in for Jagadeesan. We thought about him (Tahir) but the combination isn’t letting us.”
David Warner:“Yes, that’s probably how everybody is going around these days. Interested to see how the wicket is going to play. There is a bigger boundary on one side and I need to make the batters play there. The easiest thing to do is to forget about it (the previous loss). I’m really enjoying it (captaincy) and having Kane also helps. Really enjoying the group that we have. One change – Nadeem in for Abhishek Sharma.”

Pitch report:
“These pitches are wearing now and getting slower. The margin of error is really small though, as you cannot bowl full on these pitches. So, while the yorker is a deadly weapon, missing it by even an inch could get smacked. Bowlers have started to get into the game.”Michael Slater and Kevin Pietersen
