Karnataka boys, Gowtham and Gopal, putting the final nail in the coffin for Royal Challengers Bangalore.

They should play for India.

But at least VK finally conceded that the middle order is soft, and they need to be smarter in forming the team from now on.

I think they'll be in the all rounder market next auction in a big way.

But there's not that many around, and those that are, are snapped up.

Don't mind this swap of Hales for Braithwaite, even if BK is back and the top 5 bowlers are back on.

Important to give him a game before the finals in case he is needed, or Thampi has to play again and have a 6th bowling option.

I'm putting KW down as a success now - if he fails with the bat from here on in this season.

I don't think he has peaked yet, and still has more improvement in him as he continues to try and find the limits to his range.

I honestly believe that he still has the talent to nurture more shots and find top gear swifter.


36 off 17 balls.

KW is nurturing down leg in various ways and finding top gear faster. Clearly modelling his game on ABdV as he looks to expand in his own way.

Great to see.

Am pissed off with RCB.
If they anyway had to put up such a shabby performance (and they've put up many this season), why did they have to put up that one performance against KingsXI that completely ruined Kings' chances of going through?

So as expected it is going to be Sunrisers, CSK, MI and KKR.

KingsXI completely screwed up after such a fantastic start to their season.
RCB screwed up today after giving hope in their last few games.
RR, with their rather limited talent, did manage the odd shock but just fail to make it to the last 4. Maybe they should have got Buttler to open right from the start.
DD were DD. Outstanding season for Pant - comes to nought, as his team ends up right at the bottom.

This seems to happen season after season.
These top 4 get through inspite of losing league games to the bottom 4.
Mainly because when it REALLY matters, they don't choke.

I can already visualise the trophy in Rohit Sharma's hands, with a big smile on Junior Ambani's face.
And confetti et al.
Congratulations in advance.
Do we have any MI supporters here?
I think Atul is one.
And bolero should be, but he's not active on this IPL thread.

Sad as I am, have to agree with you. There is something intrinsically wrong somewhere with the team. I don't know who to blame. They are probably destined never to win it.

KKR are on a roll now. Qualified and play next at Eden Gardens. Their record there against every team except MI is good and so KKR supporters will be rooting for DD tomorrow, like most of rest of the civilized world.

RR are not out of it though. Their NRR is much better than KXIP and likely to remain so even if KXIP win tomorrow, unless CSK collapse.

So - If bloody MI win, they get through, period; it's that NRR. But I pray that they lose.

If MI lose, the fourth team into the playoffs will be either RR or KXIP. As things stand, most likely RR because of their superior NRR.

RR are not out of it yet. If MI lose tomorrow, RR will almost certainly get through, barring a sub-100 collapse by CSK against KXIP, abnormally boosting the latter's NRR.

Pandey again like he has done repeatedly this season has strangled all the momentum out of the SRH innings.

He is definitely the weak link since Dhawan regained form and it could very well let CSK get a home final advantage over them.

I am not an MI fan as alleged by Raja. :) In fact I am not sure whom I support. I support teams on a match to match basis and even on situation to situation basis. For instance, I supported RR against RCB yesterday throughout. Later, in the SRH vs KKR match, I began by supporting SRH but when I realised that KKR had wrested the advantage, I became a KKR supporter. :)

So I am as flexible in supporting IPL teams as Indian "secular" parties are while forming post poll alliances. :)

I like Kane to succeed the most, plus I liked the Fizz and later Rash and Shakib, so I guess I like the SRH the most, even when captained by Davey.

RCB are my favourite team to lose, despite the fact I love watching ABdV belt 6's and theere's all these Kiwis in the team - I just look forward to Virat Kohli press conferences in a loss so much.

Disappointed in Shaw, Maxwell and Shreyas Iyer.
The only matches in the IPL that really matter are the ones against Mumbai Indians.
What's the point in getting runs in the others, if you fail in these games that count?

The momentum is right back with MI.
Game over!

MI need 175 on a slowing-down dry pitch difficult to chase. Rohit Sharma probably injured and even an Ambani quickfix may not help him. DD have Plunkett, Boult. Mishra, Lamichchane and Patel (the last was very good at the death) to bowl.

If MI get there, I refuse to believe that there is no conspiracy fuelled by Ambani money. Actually, I believe that there is a conspiracy already.

Iyer's captaincy is as moronic and immature as the commentators comments. Just because Maxwell got away with a 3-run first over, what does the captain do? Give the part-time spinner another over in Powerplay - and he get slammed for 16 runs. :evil: :evil:

For the first dropped catch, what is the point of keeping a 4-foot nothing Shaw at slip instead of a taller plater like Abhishek Sharma?
