Pre Analysis and prediction of 18th Match played Kochi Tuskers Kerala vs Chennai Super Kings

Its amazing what a win does in the game of cricket. Kochi tuskers who had lost both of their opening matches albeit by close margins and looked completely out of sorts finally managed to win one and how its never easy to chase a stiff target against bowlers like Malinga,Munaf and bhajji but Kochi made it look easy.
Their new found confidence should put them in a better frame of mind and its imperative they remain positive as Kochi skipper Jayawardhene would know that Dhoni would be quick to pounce upon any lapses offered by his men. Tuskers should be looking to build upon the momentum. Their batting has always looked strong in spite of the losses but its their bowling which is lacking at the moment and former Srilankan skipper knows his bowlers have their task cut out against batsmen like Mike Hussey,Vijay,Raina,Badrinath and Dhoni and to make things even more difficult all of them have looked in the groove so far Murali has looked ineffective and Mahela can look to Ramesh Pawar who can even bat and that would allow him to include john hasting who  has had an impressive outing against Bangladesh.
Chennai will start as firm favorites but tuskers can take heart from the fact that underdogs have been coming out on top quiet frequently in this year’s IPL. Their victory against Mumbai Indians was one such occasion and Mahela would be hoping for a similar lion hearted performance especially from his bowlers.
