Good news for TV channels while Bangalore should beat Chennai
Chennai take on Bangalore in the first semi-finals of the Champions League T20 and this will be good news for those broadcasters who had lost a lot of money in the first edition of the tournament.
After all, the Champions League T20, which had started last year had struggled to attract the audiences in the first year. The main reason for the same was the lack of performances by the Indian teams. This time around, Chennai and Bangalore face each other in the semi-finals, which means that one team will go through to the final.
Between Chennai and Bangalore, it is not going to be easy to decide which is a better team. The simple reason for that is that the two sides have played each other six times in the IPL so far and would each other well.
However, given that the match will be played at the Kingsmead, the track will be fast and Super Kings have only one pace bowler, it will mean that the Bangalore should be favourites to win it.
