7:34, Toss Rahul Dravid won the toss and decided to bat first.


Rajasthan Royals will be keen to register a victory as they meet Deccan Chargers on Friday. It’s a must-win game for the Royals who have so far won seven of 14 matches and they will have to win the remaining two matches and also depend on some other favourable results to be a part of the competition.

Deccan Chargers on the other hand have lost 11 from 14 matches and are reeling at the bottom of the points table. Now since the competition is over for them they can spoil the party for the Rajasthan Royals.

Rajasthan Royals have been hugely dependent upon the start provided by Ajinkya Rahane and Rahul Dravid. In the crucial match, both of these batsmen will try to continue their good run to register a win against the Chargers.

Players to watch out for:

Rajasthan Royals: Ever since his inclusion in the side, Shane Watson has single-handedly won few matches for his side and Rajasthan Royals will once again depend on the Australian to take them a step ahead in the competition.

Deccan Chargers: Surprisingly Deccan Chargers have won the matches in which Dale Steyn has bowled some fiery spells. In the ones he has failed, Deccan Chargers have clicked as a unit to win 2 out of the 14 matches they have played so far. But with nothing to lose, Deccan should play Dale Steyn and ask the youngster to defuse the opponent with some extreme pace bowling.

The match begins at 8:00 pm
