1 over of Bhuvi, 2 of Rashid.
Rashid back!

I thought 178 was a pretty good score.
Based on how well SRH have strangled teams in the past.
But not CSK.

Bhuvi Rashid have been excellent but other bowlers have been taken apart.

8-2-41-0.
Bhuvi and Rashid combined.
Terrific.
But usually they'd pick a few wickets - none today.

Congrats, CSK fans.

In hindsight, 178 wasn't enough against this CSK side.
Worked against other teams, but not against CSK - not when you have Siddharth, Sandeep and even Shakib bowling hit-me deliveries.
How much can just Bhuvi and Rashid do?
They can only control 8 overs.

Why fireworks in Gujarat for a CSK victory?
Is Dhoni very popular there?

Chasing 179 in a final is pressure.
After 5 overs, CSK were 20/1.
Then Sandeep's over, followed by Siddharth's - and the pressure was released to a large extent.

Watson was a disaster for RCB last year.
In limited-overs, he bats freely at the top of the order.
But RCB made him bat at no.5 or even 6.
CSK did the right thing by putting him back up the order.
As if RCB doesn't already have an imbalanced squad, it does not even know how to get the best out of its players.

Mumbai Indians got the Fair Play Award.
What nonsense!
What fair play did they show - and in what way more than other teams?

The IPL bosses cannot escape giving Mumbai Indians SOME award or the other, right?

Agreed.

They lost, that in itself is Fairplay.

if Ambani had fixed, trophy would be of MI.

If this is the reason, I'm very happy for them to collect the Fair Play Award every year. :grin:
