Bangalore vs Deccan IPL Final 2009 Live Updates

It is really a very tough question to ask at this moment. This the question which no body even thought about in the inaugural IPL tournament in 2008 because both teams finished at the bottom of the point table after the end of the preliminary round. However, things have changed a lot this time as both Bangalore Royal Challengers and Deccan Chargers are now waiting to take on each other in the tournament final on 24 May 2009 at the Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg. Now, it seems to be very hard to find out a straight answer for the question that who will win the match.

Well, I think that both Bangalore and Deccan have their strong sides and the team who will better capitalize on their strengths will be winner. Let us start with Deccan Chargers. The main strength of Deccan is their star-studded batting line up which features three star hard hitters: Adam Gilchrist, Herschelle Gibbs and Andrew Symonds. Just a blistering knock from anyone of the three will be enough to tear apart Bangalore’s bowling. Moreover, Deccan has someone like Rohit Sharma who has already caught the attention for his cool-headed batting under pressure as well the ability to play big shot whenever it is needed.

Bangalore may not have as many stars hard-hitters as Deccan has, but the youngsters like Manish Pandey, Roelof van der Merwe and experienced batsmen like Ross Taylor and Mark Boucher have the ability to dominate over the opponent bowlers. However, to be honest, Deccan’s batting line up seems to be a bit ahead of Bangalore in terms of strength.

Now, let us focus on the bowling strength of two teams. Here, I do not see any team superior to others, considering the strength of their bowling attack. Bangalore has pacer like Praveen Kumar who has already become a twenty20 specialist and has been regular in India’s twent20 squad. He can check the run rate as well as pick up wickets. Experienced pacer Kallis also knows it very well how to stop the opponent batsmen. Bangalore has experienced spinner like Anil Kumble and young talented left-arm spinner Roelof van der Merwe.

However, Deccan Chargers is no less than Bangalore in terms of their bowling strength. Deccan has in-form pacers like RP Singh and Ryan Harris. Symonds’ medium pace is also very effective. Spinner Pragyan Ojha has been in good from too. So, I do not think that Bangalore’s bowling attack is superior to that of Deccan bowling attack. However, Deccan has a clear advantage over Bangalore in their batting strength.

So, I think, Deccan Chargers are slightly favorite in the match, considering their batting strength. However, you can not write off Bangalore now because Anil Kumble boys showed that they have everything needed to win the tournament. Now, I hope both sides will live up to the expectation in what would ensure a classic affair between Bangalore Royal Challengers and Deccan Chargers.
