Now Mishra got the other Pandya with a beautiful ball! Maybe, just maybe there are forces more powerful than the Devil (and the Ambanis)!

Spinners done. 4 overs of seam left. Cutting is a big hitter. Not over yet. I am not counting my chickens yet. (Reminds me that I don't have any chickens; I am vegetarian!)

Not surprising. They need some very fast scoring to overhaul RR. KXIP management probably saw what was happening at Delhi and gambled.

So it looks like RR will make it after all.
I don't mind them - they have Karnataka players in Gowtham, Gopal and err Binny.
I don't expect them to win any game in the playoffs though - but to even make it that far with a liability called Rahane is an achievement.

CSK past the 100 mark and so RR are definitely in. Despite their limited resources, feeble captain and losing 2 key players at a critical time, they somehow made it. Good for them.

RR should forget that Eden Gardens are KKR's backyard and play with a brave heart. Anything can happen in this game.

PS: Can Buttler request ECB special permission to be allowed to fly back tonight? Say he forgot something important in India? ;)

Now that RR have qualified, they should take serious stock of their limited resources and try to put them to best use. Archer seems better at the death and so he should probably just bowl one over at the start and then 16th, 18th and 20th. Laughlin and Unadkat can then be used flexibly with the spinners in the middle. Sodhi and Gopal are both bowling well and Gowtham is just a fill-in 6th bowler really there for his long handled batting at #7.

I think so. I believe they will beat CSK and go through to the final. Having said that arrival of Ngidi and the good form of Chahar has suddenly given CSK's bowling additional teeth that were not there at the start of the competition.

I would like RR to progress too. Beating KKR in Kolkata will be very difficult, I know but if RR play with bilief in themselves, it can be done. Gopal and Sodhi ate both bowling well and there is also Gowtham for the odd additional spin. But I don't think Gowtham should be used as a front like bowler....in fact, they can try him as a Narine-style pinch hitter opening the innings. Archer should never have been given that role.

there are hyperbolic expectations on Ngidi and expect him to fail the next match.
whoever won toss they would opt to bowl first.

Perhaps. My feeling about KKR are mixed. They are, and have always been, the strangest team in IPL. It starts with that purple coloured strip. Then odd decisions like getting a spin bowler to open or not always using recognised death bowlers etc. Now there is DK running around from one end to another giving instructions, his perpetual fidgeting while batting etc. Yet somehow they make it work most of the time. I have this theory that KKR win by confusing the opposing team.

The Eliminator match is going to be spin vs spin at Eden gardens. Narine, Yadav and Chawla against Sodhi, Gopal and Gowtham. Gopal looks like he found his range against RCB and I suspect he will bowl very well at Eden Gardens. If Archer and Laughlin also bowl well, RR might spring a surprise.

A good RR isde to face KKR would be IMO (Considering that RR are prepared to try the Narine experiment themselves)

1) Rahul Tripathi
2) Krishnappa Gowtham
3) Sanju Samson
4) Ajinkya Rahane
5) Heinrich Klaasen
6) Prashant Chopra (
he is a better batsman than Stuart Binny, who is next to useless as a bowler anyway)
7) Shreyas Gopal
8) Joffra Archer
9) Ish Sodhi
10)Jaydev Unadkat or Dhawal Kulkarni
11)Ben Laughlin

it would be poetic justice if brathwaite again take a 5-for and win it for SRH. ;)

On the surface, it looked like a pathetic batting display by SRH but the wicket looked difficult to bat on. CSK might not be able to sail through as easily as their fans think. SRH do have quality bowlers and on this surface Shakib especially might be difficult to get away (like Jadeja was).

Nothing against CSK but I'd like SRH to win somehow.
