Within a week, Deccan have gone from a position where they were looking at an early exit from the tournament to one where they're still in contention for a spot in the final four, although they are hanging on by the very tips of their fingernails.
The last time these two sides met, Deccan caught Bangalore in the middle of their slip from grace, when they had lost two out three games. Not too much has changed except that Bangalore have now achieved a morale boosting win over KKR but they are still somewhere on a rollercoaster of inconsistent wins and losses.
The Chargers are coming off two wins, both comprehensive and each highlighting a different strength of their game.
