RC really knows how to spoil things for themself. Uthappa tries to emulate sachin as soon as the word go is uttered. Why does he not stick his bat and &&&& around for a while before trying to make up a brilliant photoshot of his Bat lofted high and the ball either having dislodged his bails or safely in the hands of a fielder. God when will he learn???

Jesse ryder looked dangerous and gave a momentum which was flattened by the O So Great and Expensive captain in peterson. Now is the turn for Dravid again to tell Mallya..."Dude here you go...you know learn who is more worth it...me or a gora who comes $craps and leaves!!!

Best of luck RC...as i leave the score is 60/3 in 7.5 overs

Looks like the Kolkata Knight Riders are going from bad to worse with every passing match. It's the most over-rated team in the IPL. Mumbai was superb last night.

Well, I hate to say this but Mccullum looks like one of the worst Captains (at least KP walks around trying to look busy) - clueless & silent (the only one he seems to relate to is Brad Hodge, haven't seen him talk much to his other bowlers by way of encouragement or motivation).

SRK is getting what he deserves but I don't think we deserve to be tortured with their painful performances.

Well Sachin tendulkar is a delight to watch. Seems like his Heydays are back. The straight drive sixer and the shot which looked like straight out from Lagaan was a delight.

Mumbai indians have the best cheerleaders and the other good once are for DC.

They dig their own grave by removing saurav as captain. No wonder slowly they will be buried in it.
My prediction for top 4 semifinalists-
Mumbai Indians
Daredevils
Deccan
Chennai

Yaay - KKR got crushed !! Enjoyed it.

Except Dada and Gayle no one looks to be in form (and Gayle leaving after 2 matches). The coach and his support staff are milking SRK dry. Buchanan's 2 sons are in the support staff as is Andy Bichel as bowling coach.

I cannot see any reason why Brad Hodge is still in the team if you look at his performances in both seasons. Buchanan connection again ??? And KKR are keeping out W. Saha who looks a much better T20 player than Hodge.

But who cares - as long as KKR keep losing I am happy

ps - The Aussies pulled off a super win yesterday over the Pakis.

W Saha has an injured thumb I think.

And regarding Aus defeating Pak, I don't know whether to be happy or sad

RC is in dilemma atlest for captiancy. Dravid has come back to India, KP has left for his home tour. The only faces left is Kallis/Uthappa (KA ranji captian). Mallya sure knows how to loose money. First it was Force1 and now it is RC.

One thing I hate about this IPL is that everything is commercialized, even the commentary. They say DLF maximum for a SIX and Citi moment of success for wicket.
It is not too far when Shastri will say " the previous LG Minimum(dot ball) forced the Godrej Hit-man(batsman) to go for a Hero Honda Passion+++ drive" the batsman got "Maxnewyork" life in the second Pepsi ball he faced. Crap!
