SHAUN VS SHANE Indian Premier League

Mumbai Indians vs Rajastan Royals , May 7, Mumbai: It will be a battle between Shaun Pollock and Shane Warne. With Sachin Tendulkar still not fit to play( I think he is afraid to play T20) Pollock have to lead from the front in a do or die contest to keep alive any hopes of semifinals. Sanath is still to show his full potential glimpses of which were found in the last match.
Young wicket keeper Yogesh Takawale has to step up hi scoring rate or at least he should give the strike to Jayasurya by picking up singles. On the other hand Rajastan players are high in confidence and their top order is in very good form. Yousuf Pathan's big hitting makes him very dangerous at top of the order. Smith's experience and Watson's power play makes their batting line up look so consistent. Sohail Tanvir's bowling in the last match was he best ever in any formof T20 cricket and his lusty hitting in the late order will add strength to the Royals. But cricket is the game of uncertainties and like Chennai and Kolkatta lost their way a spirited performance from Shaun & Co. will end winning streak of Shane & Co.
