I didn't watch this game at all but it looks like it was a very exciting game.
Faf? Who'd have thunk?
Faf du WasteOfSpace has finally been of some use in this IPL. :-)

How do CSK manage this always?
A squad of oldies, who many thought wouldn't even physically last through the tournament - and here they are, sitting pretty in the final, waiting for whoever they have to play for the title.

They've not had a super-duper star this season. Every game they've won, a different guy has put his hand up.

it’s a mistake to get harbhajan run out.

we will bounce back and take revenge in the finals.

I feel that SRH has lost their winning momentum quite badly, losing to many teams in the last few matches. SRH snatched defeat from the jaws of victory in this match.

When 43 runs were required from 3 overs and 8 wickets down, I thought game was gone for CSK until Thakur came and struck 3 boundaries that caught SRH totally off guard.

I had to leave for work around the time when CSK were 50/4 and when I checked s hort time later, they were 63/6. I did not see anything afterwards till midnight (UK time). This will be a body blow to SRH and Williamson.

If Faf had been a member of this forum, even he would not have predicted that he would become the MoM. Well done.

RR started well but rearguard action from DK and the Monster have taken the score to 169. I think this is a bit beyond RR's capability, considering they have no Buttler and Samson is woefully short of form and confidence. With KKR's 3 quality spinners, the chase is going to be tough.

I did think it would be difficult for RR to reach the target but did not expect such a pathetic performance. They seemed too scared to have a go at the spinners. Rahane's passive personality has obviously rubbed off on his captaincy and his players. That is the difference between them and CSK last night.

KKR would now be favourites to beat SRH on Friday, especially as the match is in their home ground.

A team where Binny bats at number 5 ! This batting line up would be unlikely to chase any total seeing that their tail begins as soon as their third wicket falls.

Why are KKR sticking with this Javon Searles guy? He does not seem to be good with either batting or bowling and not red hot in the field - at least not any more than most of his colleagues. Tom Curran might give the team a more balanced seam option which at present is rather too reliant on Russell and Krishna.

Likewise Harbhajan Singh is wasting a space with CSK. His bowling is no longer a threat and his previously occasionally exciting batting seems to have taken a holiday as well. IMO, they should bring-in Karn Sharma instead.

KKR win toss and bowl first. Means SRH have to set a total and defend it. They USED to be good at that, remember?

KKR bring in Mavi for Searles (and so only 3 overseas players). IMO this is an aggressive choice and increases their seam options without compromising spin. Also, Russell can now bowl around the other two seamers without being pressurised into opening or bowling at the death. Finally with Narine opening, Russell in at #7 (unless required earlier), Mavi at #8 and Chawla at #9, they have good all rounders who can bat at late middle order.

SRH's changes by contrast looked forced and defensive. Sandeep Sharma started superbly but has gone completely off the boil and Pandey hopelessly out of form with the bat. I feel that Williamson should use Shakib's bowling a little more aggressively if he wants to win this game.
I also think SRH should have found a place for Hales. If he clicks, he can score very fast.

Ultimately, this could turn out to be a contest between the rival captains' mettle. Williamson is the cool and calm one but for all his squatting, fidgeting, running back & forth and other annoying nuances, DK is proving that he is capable of doing the job just as well.

Rashid Khan helps SRH to reach a very defendable 174/7. A 24-run last over from not-so-Prasid-now Krishna. Rashid 34 off 10 balls! Courage does work sometimes!

If Rashid bowls well also - and he usually does - I might get both my predictions right after all.

So what has this new find Khalil achieved? 2 overs for 24 runs. SRH are commiting harakiri.

Rashid Khan is good but he cannot do it all on his own. Needs help from the other end.

Khaleel has been picked up for 3 crores by SRH.
His base price was only 20 lakhs.

He might still come up with somthing special - let's see.

I one over that fool Khalil has managed to undo most of Rashid Khan's good work. 4 overs left; Kaul has 2 left and Bhuvi one. Safer to risk Shakib for the remaining one over than Khalil.

And now it's really over. Seriously, DK's wicket was the key. He was the guy holding the team up and finishing it. Well done SRH and all the best for the final.

PS: SRH won by 13 runs and Rashid Khan scored 24 of the last over for them.

Congratulations, SRH.
Rashid was superman today - with bat, ball and in the field.

I did my bit by jinxing KKR. :-)
But seriously, they have just 2 batsmen I rate - Karthik & Russell.
The rest range from totally rubbish (Gill) to moderately rubbish (Uthappa) to out-of-form rubbish (Lynn).

But why? :grin:

Cos of SRK?

I don't hate KKR, I just like SRH more. :-)

Of the 8 franchisees, there's only one I really want kicked out every single time. :-)

Hate KKR? Why? Although I wanted SRH to win today, I would not have been too disappointed if KKR had won. They are all right even though I find their player selection policies rather strange.

The only team I absolutely loathe is MI. Even nice guy players assume an air of arrogance after they join the bloody team. Worse still some of them - I still say Rayudu is one of those - retain that manner after they have left the team.

By contrast, MI players in their country colours - weather they are Indian or overseas - are fine. Hardik Pandya and the Bum become completely different people in their lighter blues. I even feel sorry for Rohit Sharma when he plays for India and fails with the bat, but when he is leading MI, Grrrrrr!!

I think SRH have to consider their team for the final carefully. Definitely drop Khalil Ahmed and bring back Sandeep Sharma, who should have had a rest and had his batteries recharged. With Bhuvi, Kaul, Sandeep, Rashid and Shakib playing SRH don't really need a 6th bowling option and IMO they should drop Brathwaite and bring Hales back. Also, Pathan seems to be somewhere else right now and probably would not even notice if they dropped him; Give Bipul Sharma a chance (and he can be a 6th bowler)
