Chargers start favourites against Somerset

Under the inspirational Adam Gilchrist, the Chargers possess an arsenal of explosive batsmen and fiery bowlers who helped the franchisee script an incredible turnaround and become the second edition IPL winner in South Africa.

Gilchrist may have quit international cricket but the swashbuckling left-hander still can tear apart any bowling attack, as he did frequently in the IPL.

The tournament will also be special for controversial all-rounder Andrew Symonds, who would like to make a statement after Australia dumped him on disciplinary grounds.
Rohit Sharma will be hoping to replicate the same form that made him such a hot property in Twenty20 cricket and the youngster is also trying to force his way into Team India with some brilliant knocks in the Champions League.

In the first match of the day, Cape Cobras play Otago Volts.
