In Picture: Adam Gilchrist has to score big if Deccan are to seize the initiative
The Chargers middle order is brittle and although they should be able to rely on Andrew Symonds and Dwayne Smith that may not always be the case. The time has now run out for the local lads and they absolutely have to perform. Anirudh Singh, Azhar Bilakhia and Tirumalasetti Suman must make some meaningful contribution with the bat if the Chargers are to make inroads up the order.
Gilchrist will also be feeling the pressure on himself, with only one half century at the top of the order, and a collection of feisty cameos, and will also be eyeing a big knock.
