Match 49: Kolkata vs Bangalore

Postby raja » Thu May 22, 2014 11:14 am

Yusuf Pathan run out just when he was looking very dangerous.

But KKR doing very well here.

67/3 after 8.1.

Uthappa has been in terrific form.
500+ runs, at an SR of 133.

Shikhar Dhawan and Robin Uthappa wouldn't be a bad combo in ODIs/T20s at the moment for BCCI.
Should always capitalise on a player in form.

This is some really good batting from Uthappa.
Making it look so easy.
His placement is very good.

Uthappa is really so much better opening the innings than in the middle order.

111/3 after 13.
This is fun to watch. Uthappa and Shakib in their contrasting styles.

Shakib takes 24 off that Chahal over. 3 sixes.

KKR in full flow here.

Shakib's innings comes to an end.
Not impressed by the way he got out.
Not a particularly classy innings either, even if it was quite effective.

195/4 off their 20.

Uthappa 83 off 51.

Extremely good innings to watch. Classy shots, lovely placement. Good rotation of strike. Had it all.

Narine gets the set Kohli and the set Takawale in the same over. 100 for 3 after 14.

16 an over isn't a problem for AB and Yuvraj, right?

Narine gets Yuvi.
This guy Narine hardly shows any emotion, does he?

I like it. Guys that don't get excited for doing their job. Every I help someone find a book at the library I don't run back to the desk and high five my colleagues.

I mean, he's paid to take wickets. He has more a "that's right, I'm the world's best T20 bowler" approach. "Of course I took another wicket."

A good day to bring Narine into my team and have Robin Reliant as my power player. :popcorn:

raja, you've probably never heard of Barry Sanders. I might have brought this up once before here on CF. He was one of the most exciting running backs the NFL has ever seen. When he scored a touchdown he would just talk the ball to the official and hand it to him. No dancing. No spiking the ball. No celebrations. Only "this is my job and I'm great at it, here's another touchdown."

Does Ganguly have anything to do with this KKR squad?
Is he part of the management in any way?

Gayle has been a total flop all tournament.
RCB could've played another overseas player instead of persisting with him all the time.

None that I am aware of.. but he is prince of kolkata.. so his name whether he likes it or not has to be mentioned. Well especially when things go wrong..but he can be given a break once a while. However I am quite sure he is involved some way or another be it mamta banerjee losing the election or kkr winning the match.

They are winning, right? That's proof enough that Ganguly is not involved. Duh!!!

That stand in keeper did well but I would not have dropped Parthiv, rested Gayle instead.

Gayle lost his marbles. It's all gone when he trimmed his hair. He needs to talk to Ishant for tips not related to cricket

Considering how pathetic their bowling has been, you'd have thought RCB would've given Ravi Rampaul more chances.

Yaa.. But tbh their batting came apart.. not just gayle.. kohli also did not do much.. Yuvi was the lone ranger in the later stage.
