Deccan well equipped than Rajasthan

Deccan Chargers vs Rajasthan Royal

Deccan Chargers will have more options to field players who are
performing consistently well this IPL, when they face Rajasthan Royals
today.Though captain Adam Gilchrist has not been in the best of forms in
the last 2 games, Deccan Chargers (DC) has enough ammunition to
outsmart Rajasthan Royals on the field, according to Castrol Index. The
table shows below the performance charts of the main players around
which the two teams have rallied around the matches this IPL. The
figures show the CIs achieved by the players in the last 5 matches they
played.

DC becomes stronger when one considers Andrew Symonds and Dwayne
Smith in the team. Symonds, who played his first match in this IPL,
already notched up a CI of 100 and Smith has a CI of 65 from the 2
matches that he has played so far. Scott Styris also waits in the wings
with a Castrol Index of 76, enough to disturb the rhythm of RR.

RR, on the other hand, will be missing the best all-rounder of IPL
2008, Shane Watson, who has been ruled out of this IPL due to an
injury. Amit Singh, who has played only the last 3 matches for RR so
far, is firing for them with a CI of 108, but it remains to be seen
whether the regular players of RR can perform beyond their average in
this match.
