No it is not an India-Pakistan contest, but we might catch a Pakistani bowling to Indian. Yasir Arafat is very much part of PRS’ scheme of things and is Adam Voges’ go to man. Suresh Raina is in magnificent touch and is familiar to take game away from opposition. Raina smashed 43-ball 90 against Dolphins and PRS will be wary of his credentials. The Pakistani import in PRS line-up has a smarter slower delivery in his armoury and he could be an exciting bowler to watch taking on the likes of Suresh Raina.

Brendon McCullum vs Brad Hogg
Brad Hogg is one experienced campaigner in PRS squad and he is one of the key members of their bowling unit.

CSK have Brendon McCullum as their hard hitting opener and he looked in decent touch against Dolphins. It could well be another of Trans-Tasman contest.
