CSK coach expects nail-biting finish against RCB

Bangalore: Expecting a high-scoring game on Wednesday, Chennai Super Kings hope to repeat the gigantic performance against Royal Challengers Bangalore by rekindling fond memories of a nail-biting finish they had scripted when both teams met on April 12.

"Since RCB`s batting looks heavy at top of the order fully packed with overseas players, I think it will come down to a nail-biting over and hope we can win this (type of a game) again. It will be a high-scoring game as the history of Chinnaswamy wicket speaks thus," CSK bowling coach Andy Bichel told reporters here.

Bichel said RCB boast of big international players in the side and expects them to keep up the winning momentum.

"Yes, it`s a challenge for us coming here and playing at RCB`s home territory. They are a good side and there will be momentum."

Aware of RCB winning against Rajasthan Royals without enough contributions from Chris Gayle and Virat Kohli at top of the order, Bichel said CSK have sketched a bowling plan for all host players.

"We certainly plans for all RCB players. Tomorrow, we will devise a plan with bowlers and hopefully it comes off. A small window of opportunity (we should grab) and that is the thing about Twenty20," he said.

Though RCB captain Daniel Vettori has been struggling to find form with both bat and ball, Bichel said he has so far done a good job.

"Daniel is a good captain and has done a good job as New Zealand captain and taking on franchisee team like this is a bit different. His captaincy in last two games have been pretty good."

CSK also seem to be upbeat with the return of Albie Morkel, who had flown to South Africa to attend the funeral of his close friend.

"Albie is playing tommorow ... He will lend more depth to our side which is very good," Bichel stated.
