It's all about peaking at the right time. Chennai were superb today.

Punjab will enter the semi's and then enter the finals. Hopefully they will win the IPL this time.

IMO, for the first time, there's no clear winner. Any team having good day (even good 5 ovvers) can win this one (of course except KKR). I think DC can win this one once Symonds and Afridi get back into their squad. DC's have one of the most lethal batsmen lineup and can change the game anytime.

You are right. Except for KKR, all the remaining teams have equal chance. MI, DD & KXI really need to pull up their socks if they are to remain in contention.

All These teams become Average:

Delhi without Sehwag
Chennai without Hayden
RR without Pathan
Punjab without Sangakara
Mumbai without Tendulkar
KKR without Hodge
Bangalore without Kallis
DC without Gilly

So, there's nothing to choose between them.

Afridi wont be back as per IPl policy of not getting any Paki player this season.The way DC performed again CSK yesterday i doubt if they are clear winners.

Sehwag has not performed so far- Its Dilshan and Devillers.
Along with HAydo its Raina who forms the back bone.
RR without Shane warne also.
Sanga has not done as much as bowlers have. Most of their matches are being won by bowlers and Irfan Pathan has been good with bat and ball.
ALso Without Jayasuriya.
KKR- they can do without anyone as they wont win anyways
Also Pravin kumar is doing gud for bangalore.
Dc- ALso Gibbs and Rohit sharma.

The way RR have whooped KXI bowlers, looks like they want to take it all. Freakin' unbelievable.

No one is a clear winner and it's anybody's cup.

Harry bhai

Punjab ka jeetna to mushkil lag raha hai. RR 200+ Delhi bhi keh nahi sakte. They tend to fumble against the weaker teams & what team would be weaker than KKR.

My Predictions:
RR wins
DD wins

Look similarity RR DD

IMO these are the star players

DD: AB DE(Devilliers), Dilshan
RR: Pathan, Warnie(Captain Courageous)
KKR: Hmmm
DC: Gilly, RP
KXP: Yuvi, Abdullah
CSK: Haydos, Raina
MI: Tendya
RCB: Kallis

I saw some overs and what a pounding.
Sreesanth had a comeback and i think he is going back home after the match ends(judging by his bowling and no bowls quota)

@ Varun- Punjab is down surely. 16/2 in 4 overs- is this oval test match?
But DD wont be down for sure.
Suddenly RR is looking quiet strong with Smith back in form.
Anyones tournament still.

Looks like its my day today!
Phoren baba is in great touch today, KKR have got a great start, if they post a good total, DD will have tough time chasing it.

Top 7 in the points table is like revolving door, teams keep switching positions.
Looks like DC's reign at the top is over. After indifferent starts to the season, finalists of last year CSK and RR have bubbled their way up.
