Johannesburg: South Australia Redbacks will clash against Chevrolet Warriors in the second semi-final of the Champions League T20, 2010, for a spot in the finals to meet Chennai Super Kings who are already waiting.
The clash is perhaps going to be a very competitive one as both the teams have shown consistent cricket throughout the League so far.
The Redbacks are the only team having 100 per cent win record coming into the match and they were Group B winners. Captain Michael Klinger has been amongst the runs in the tournament and he will be determined to lead his side to the finals. Daniel Harris has had his contributions as well and he will also be hopeful of making a good cut against the Warriors attack.
They have dangerous new ball bowler in the form of Shaun Tait who will be returning in the side after missing a game against Guyana. With his pace and accuracy, the Warriors will have to handle him with care and make sure they don't fall in his trap. Daniel Christian is another bowler who has been impressive sharing the new ball with Tait.
On the other side, the Warriors were very impressive thoughout the tournament until the last match against CSK which was their first defeat. Their batting failed miserably and that cost them the match against CSK. However, the semi-finals against the Redbacks will be a new ball game alltogether and they will be hoping to beat the Redbacks and avenge their defeat against CSK in the finals.
The only advantage they have is playing under home conditions, and the crowd support is bound to be good for the home team. They have some big match-winners in the form of Mark Boucher, Johan Botha., Nicky Boje.
The clash is set to be a tricky affair and the match is likely to swing from one side to other till the very end of match. The team that plays well under pressure and takes those half chances is likely to run away with the match.
