IPL 2011: Kochi Tuskers Kerala vs Pune Warriors
The debutants of IPL will lock horns today DY Patil stadium Mumbai . Both Pune and Kochi are in to their second match of the IPL, Pune begun their campaign with a win against the Kings XI Punjab, were tuskers lost to the RCB in a disgusting fashion.
Going in to today's match Pune warriors will have the momentum with them, even though Kochi lost the fist match you can't write of the Kochi Tuskers, Kochi will come to the game in the lights of great Murali, Captain Mahela and the fearless Kerala Pacer Sreesanth. Sreesanth will be crucial factor in deciding the fate of the match, if he gets everything rite he will be lethal.
Both teams have gray area in their batting and bowling department, Pune hasn't find a inform opener in Graeme smith, laxman s consistency will be factor to look in for Tuskers. Are medium pacers Shrikant Wagh and Alfonso Thomas pune opening pair with the ball don't seems good to tackle the batters like mahela and MaCullam .

I was really hoping that Kochi would win the match this time, though my gut feeling was that Pune would win it because they have superb cricketers in their team. All my hopes crashed down and Kochi really did not play well today considering their debut match against Bangalore was really good and competitive. Their fielding also was not upto the mark today. In the first match their batting was good but bowling needed improvement. But today's match showed the vice versa. A score like 13-3 is enough to understand their batting is also not consistent but the bowlers were better today. Atleast they were able to get 6 wickets and make a tensed situation till the end of the match. Pune is a really good team and i'm sure they will do well in this time's IPL.
ഒന്നില് പിഴച്ചാല് മൂന്നു എന്നല്ലേ.....അതില് നമ്മള് ജയിക്കും
