Aussie skipper Michael Clarke makes IPL debut against Deccan Chargers at Barabati Stadium

Pune Warriors led by Sourav Ganguly would  be boosted by the inclusion of Michael Clarke who would bring further stability to the batting line-up.

Warriors would like to avenge the defeat against Deccan Chargers in the return-leg tie here at Barabati stadium.

Sourav Ganguly's side would be benefitted by the presence of Michael Clarke, which means the team needs to rest an overseas player inorder to accomodate the Australian Test captain.

With the team wearing a balanced look, Ganguly's XI look to dominate the deflated Chargers, but are aware of the team's ability to pull a win after their loss to Chargers at home.

Deccan on the other hand, have already lost seven matches and are on the verge of being eliminated from the fifth edition of IPL.

Poor fielding, batting failures and lack of bowling strength leads them to a must-win situation, while their key players like Kumar Sangakkara, Cameron White and JP Duminy are struggling to score runs.

Squads:

Pune Warriors: MK Pandey, SC Ganguly*, MJ Clarke, RV Uthappa†, MN Samuels, SPD Smith, M Manhas, WD Parnell, M Kartik, B Kumar, A Nehra

Deccan Chargers: PA Patel†, S Dhawan, KC Sangakkara*, CL White, JP Duminy, BB Samantray, Ankit Sharma, A Ashish Reddy, A Mishra, DW Steyn, V Pratap Singh
