Mumbai: Chennai Super Kings coach Kepler Wessels yesterday said that his team will need to stick to the basics tomorrow to have a chance against Punjab King"s XI in the second semi-final of the DLF Indian Premier League to be played at the Wankhede stadium here today.

Addressing mediapersons here today, Wessels said his side would have the psychological advantage having beaten the same opponents twice in the league stage.

''We had beaten them early in the tournament when we had our strongest team and later on even without the overseas players we still managed to win. It's an advantage to go into the semifinals against them with this record,'' he added.

Wessels said both the teams will get the chance to assess the Wankhede Stadium pitch from the first semifinal today.

''We will get a look at the pitch during the semifinal today (between Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Daredevils) and it will give us a fair idea. It should be an advantage for both teams playing the semifinals,'' he said.

The coach said they had picked a replacement for New Zealander Stephen Fleming who had to leave the team due to personal reasons.
