That was an exciting game, thanks to Rashid Khan.
Kane did well too, but what was looking like a mountain suddenly became just a hill, thanks to Rashid.
19 in the last over is pretty doable these days - sixes are being hit like they are singles.
Bravo used all his experience to keep Rashid quiet.

Ricky Bhui used up 5 deliveries upfront without getting off the mark.
Hmm.

Was good to see Rayudu get runs. He's had modest performances in the last few IPLs - was very consistent for MI for a few years.

Well there's no doubt that KW is getting better. But once again, the RRR got out of hand - despite Khan's cameo.

I really want to see him take a bring the RRR down approach like Warner and ABDV as against a Kohli and Dhoni 'catch up later' approach.

Dhawan sorely missed by SRH.

Suryakumar Yadav is a very dangerous batsman.
(Is there ONE weak link in the MI side?)

And then Gowtham drops a sitter!

RR don't deserve to win.

Ishan Kishan plays classical shots, like an Academy-trained batsman.
Very pleasing to the eye.
Which is why he will not be as successful as streetfighter Rishabh Pant.

I really like this guy, Jofra Archer.
Hadn't heard of him before the auction.
Seeing him for the first time today.
Got good pace, pretty accurate.

Pity he'll be playing for England from 2023 when he qualifies to play for them.
Trust England to be lucky.

141/4 after 17.
Theoretically they could get 36 every over from here, but I'll be realistic.
Not every ball will be hit for 6, so let's say 34 ever over.
That makes it 102 more, so MI could end up at 243.
That's a conservative score, assuming they get only 34 every over.
And assuming no wides, no-balls.
A few free hits, and that could be 300.

Dhawal Kulkarni, Unadkat, Gowtham, Gopal, Stokes, Archer....

That's actually not a bad bowling attack for the IPL.
They might not have a mean death bowler like Bumrah or a magician like Rashid Khan, but they're a decent attack.

Ok, after 18, MI are 154/4.
They couldn't quite get the 34 runs in that over, managed 13 though.
Still looking good for 222 (assuming 34 each in the next 2).

168 to win.
Too much for RR.
On this big ground, and with the ball not coming on nicely to the bat, it's beyond them.

They need to get as many as they can in the PowerPlay, playing lofted shots over the fielders in the circle.
Once the field is fully spread out, they're going to be caught in the deep, going for sixes.

when needed most a real captain would stand and deliver. rahane is not that person.

make sanju samson as captain. being a wicket keeper he knows what to do on placements.

That RRR is creeping up.
RR need to keep an eye on that RRR, especially considering MI has the best death bowlers in the history of the game.

This is what someone else says (on cricbuzz):

Prakhar says: "RR should accelerate here, scoring at over 10 against the likes of Bumrah & Fizz won't be easy. They might end up 5-10 runs short".
---
My thoughts too.
They need to not leave it for the death overs.

Going as I expected.
Just 5 runs in that last Krunal Pandya over.
Pressure building up.
Samson holes out.

This is a big ground - so clearing it isn't as easy as on other grounds.

Buttler looks like a waste of space.

Re: IPL 2018 - Live match thread

That was SO SO SO awesome!

They needed 43 from 17 when Gowtham walked in.

Remember, this is a huge ground - having an SR of 300 here is just awesomeness to an amazing degree!

It was very smart batting too.

When they needed 6 from 4 (became 6 from 3, after a dot when he refused to take a single to bring Unadkat on strike), I was hoping he wouldn't try something stupid.

He was very sensible.

I think I'm beginning to like this RR squad now.

After Dravid left, and with Stokes joining, my love for RR dipped quite a bit.

But since they have Karnataka players (Gowtham & Gopal), and Samson (who I really like) and Jofra Archer (who I'm beginning to like), I'm beginning to warm to this franchise.

Unadkat gets a lot of flak from us (esp after he bagged such a huge contract), but he bowled quite well today.

Archer was excellent. Quick - and accurate.

Few more enjoyable sights in cricket than seeing Bumrah being taken to the cleaners. :-)

18 in that 19th over, brought it down from 28 off 12 to 10 off 6.

Even then I didn't dare hope.

Against Mumbai Indians, on this big ground, 10 isn't easy.

Bit harsh on Gowtham that he didn't get MoM.
Archer was brilliant too - thanks to him, Mumbai were pulled back from what looked very much like 180-190.

But without Gowtham's 33 off 11, no way would RR have managed this.

Both deserved MoM today.

So it's not just me then! I was doing whoops like a kid when Mumbai Indians lost in the last over thru a six. First it was Kedar Jadhav, then Jason Roy and now Krishnappa Gowtham. Great!

Although basically an RCB supporter (being originally from Bangalore), I don't mind 6 other teams; in fact I like every one of them so that I am neutral when they are playing against each other; of course, I support RCB if any of them are playing against us.

But I always want Mumbai Indians to lose, no matter who they are playing. I don't know why because I like Bumrah, Sharma and the younger Pandya when they play for India. Likewise, I love watching Pollard in Windies colours. But when they represent Mumbai..... :evil: :evil: :evil: . Maybe it's that Ambani woman.

Just learnt that Mumbai Indians had picked Gowtham for last year's IPL for 2 crores (about USD 300,000) but he didn't get a chance to play in a single game.

Today he comes up with this performance against MI. Message for Rohit Sharma? :-)

Btw, what happens to a player who doesn't play even a single game? He still gets his full money, right?

Exactly the same with me. :grin:

I always want Mumbai Indians to lose.

For me the reason is that Mumbai has always been a powerhouse of domestic cricket. Bullying every other team. Khadoos players, who somehow manage to take Mumbai over the line. In the 70s, the Indian team used to be dominated by Mumbai.

All of this made me resent Mumbai cricket team and Mumbai cricketers just a bit. I always want to see Mumbai lose in the Ranji Trophy.

That feeling has spilt over to Mumbai Indians in the IPL. :-)
