Mohali: Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat in the Indian Premier League T20 away game against Mohali Kings XI Punjab at the PCA Stadium here on Saturday.

Both the sides have fielded a line-up that has a right blend of experience and youth.

Nothing separates the Chennai Kings and Mohali Kings in a batting department. However Mohali has a slight advantage over Chennai for the local outfit has a better bowling line-up spearheaded by Brett Lee with Pathan and Sreesanth to support the fiery Aussie paceman and a quality leggie in the shape of Piyush Chawla.

It would be interesting to see how the legendary offie Murali fares for Chennai in this slam bang format of the game.


Mohali Kings XI Punjab: Karan Goel, James Hopes, Kumar Sangakkara, Yuvraj Singh, Simon Katich, Pankaj Dharmani, Irfan Pathan, Brett Lee, Piyush Chawla, Wilkin Mota and Sreesanth.

Chennai Super Kings: Matthew Hayden, Parthiv Patel (wk), S Badrinath, Michael Hussey, Suresh Raina, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (capt), Jacob Oram, Joginder Sharma, Manpreet Gony, P Amarnath and Muralitharan.
