CLT20 2013 Match 13: CSK vs BRH Scorecard - Chennai vs Brisbane
Chennai Super Kings vs Brisbane Heat Live Score of Champions League Twenty20 2013, 13th Match Group B played at JSCA International Stadium Complex, Ranchi on September 28th 2013.
Two teams with contrasting fortunes will take each other on at the JSCA International Stadium in Ranchi today, when Chennai Super Kings play Brisbane Heat in a Champions League Twenty20 2013 Group B clash.
Chennai, having won both their matches, know that a third win will assure them of a place in the semifinals. Brisbane, however, are at the other end of the spectrum. They're at the bottom of the pile and are fighting to stay alive in the tournament having lost both matches they've played. A loss against Chennai will knock them out of the running for the semifinal berth.
Going by recent form, the result may seem fairly straightforward, but Twenty20 cricket has a penchant for throwing up upsets. Brisbane, in desperation, are capable of punching above their weight and getting the better of a Chennai side, who know a loss wouldn't hurt them too much.
To do that, however, Brisbane will need to improve vastly. In the matches they've played so far - against Trinidad & Tobago and Titans - they restricted the opposition to low scores but floundered during the chase, the batsmen collapsing much too easily. Joe Burns scored 45 against T&T, and James Hopes, the captain, scored 37 against Titans. That apart, not one Brisbane batsman has managed to make a start, let alone get a big score, so far in the tournament.
