Since GS is enjoying the beauty of nature, I thought I'd open this thread for Hyderabad. :-)

Oh, I am a Hyderabad fan.
And a Rajasthan fan.
It's a pity only one of these 4 can go through to the next round.
And there's a chance neither will, if Mumbai pip both of them at the last hurdle. That's looking a very distinct possibility now. :(

Yusuf finally dismissed.

But this was ONE hell of an innings.

72 off 22.

KKR should still be able to get through to 2nd in the table, I think. Yusuf's done a great job here!

60 lakh rupees to play one game less. Totally worth it.

Pathan only plays when absolutely needed

Now Playing:

    If I hold a gun to your head for entire next year

A royal screw delivered to SRH and a smaller one delivered to CSK throwing them to the third place.

From wooden spoon contest they are now threatening to take the trophy these gandungli gang.. that must mean something. Kolkata must be having a hilsa overload.

Some people are saying Srikkanth (father and son) deliberately screwed CSK.

Yusuf is known to enjoy spinners for breakfast.

Of the first 14 deliveries he faced, 12 were bowled by spinners.

And of all his 22 deliveries, not one was a bouncer. Not even in the over that Steyn bowled.

That is the point Akash Chopra is also making - though he is not bringing up the Srikkanth angle, of course.

The son (Aniruddh) did Yusuf a big favour by dropping a chance.

The FIRST ball that Yusuf Pathan faced:

7.5
Sharma to Pathan, 1 run, dropped, S Aniruddha has put down an absolute sitter, Yusuf thought he was gone and was walking off, it was typical Yusuf slog, flew to the man at deep midwicket, coming straight at Aniruddha, who barely gets a finger on it as he lets it through to hit his chest

And THIS when Yusuf was 14 ->

10.5
Parvez Rasool to Pathan, SIX, dropped, this was clubbed towards deep square leg, serious power on it, but you expect Dale Steyn to hand on to this sort of overhead chance, he doesn't and that's six, Rasool is incensed, Sammy isn't too pleased either

Anyway, Kolkata vs Punjab should be a terrific game.
Winner goes through to final, loser gets another shot at it.

Given the form both these teams are in, it could well be a repeat match-up in the final.

Can't wait to watch highlights of this innings. Three lives is usually a good way to score a bunch of runs.

No, I meant CSK.

They deliberately messed up this game so that KKR would go above CSK in the rankings.

Now CSK has only one chance to make the finals, not two. It is now at 3rd position.

Srikkanth and son have an axe to grind against CSK - or so is the talk.
