The Mother of all Matches!

If yesterday was the battle of the titanics, today is the mother of all IPL matches.

Its the Delhi Daredevils against the Deccan Chargers!

The top 2 teams in the IPL this year.

The Chargers are unbeaten so far, while the Daredevils started the tournament as favorites, which they still are despite the 1 loss to the defending champions.

It promises to be a great battle today.

It will be a battle between the opening pairs - Deccan boasting of one of the best, while Delhi having one that is THE best but has failed to fire in the IPL.

The pair that gets going will take the game away I feel. If both of them do, we will be in for a treat!

It will be a battle between the attacking bowlers - RP Singh is one of the leading wicket takers in the IPL, while Edwards has been in firing form. For Delhi, Nannes is one of the best 20-20 bowlers in the world.

Nannes to Gilchrist, RP to Sehwag and Gambhir. It'll be a sight!

It will be a battle between the spinners - Ojha has been the best spinner on display in the IPL this year and is also among the leading wicket takers, while Vettori is the highest wicket taker in 20-20 internationals.

Vettori was taken apart by Yusuf Pathan the other day so he'll be seeking redemption.

It definitely looks like a cracker is on the cards, but as it happens with most matches like these, I hope its not a dampner!

    I was a little disaappointed with the match, especially how the DC played. I was expecting a high scoring game. But all praises to DD. I'll wait for their next encoutner
