CSK Batting was very good yesterday. Hayden was not finding his touch during the initial stages but then he came good. Dhoni is improving every match. Waaaaaaaaaaaay to Go Chennai

Sreesanth's fake aggression is getting a bit irritating. Thank god he was not selected in the Indian T20 Team.

I agree. If he keeps this up, I doubt he will get a place in Kings XI aslo.

IPL update:
Watson/Bracken/Hopes not allowed to play in IPL.
Symonds and Lee are cleared to play.

If MI lose today, they along with RCB and KXP will find it harder to make it to last 4.

These are the matches each team needs to win to enter semi finals.
CSK 2/5 (RR,RCB,MI,KKR,KXP)
RR 2/5 (CSK,DC,MI,DD,KKR)
DD 3/7 (MI,KKR,DC,KXP,RR,RCB,MI)
DC 3/6 (KXP,RR,DD,KKR,KXP,RCB)
MI 4/6 (DD,RCB,KXP,RR,CSK,DD)
RCB 4/5 (MI,KKR,CSK,DD,DC)
KXP 4/5 (DC,MI,DD,DC,CSK)
KKR out

If Sreesanth continues like this, there will be another slapping incident. Hayden just laughed him away after getting out, but, I fear that one day Yuvraj is gonna clobber him if he continues bowling like this.

The episode where Shane Warne goes to the spectator and takes a sip of his beer was hilarious, and this was while the match was on. Did any one see that?

But what do the rules of the game say, can you drink and play or drink while playing? or is it because its Shane Warne thats why Lalit Modi (appernetly he has some stake in RR) is quiet?

I think the captaincy of Sachin was nothing great - right through the tournament. When MI field - they keep running after the ball and when they bat, the ball goes straight to a fielder.

Yesterday when the medium pace stuff was stifling the Delhi batsman, Sachin gets Bhajji (the most useless and overrated spinner in India) to bowl and the pressure lifts. Duminy bowled much better than Bhajji yesterday. Also Sachin getting himself on was a brilliant master-stroke for the DD. All know he bowls short when he is warming up and that thing happened and he got licked.

And why is Pinal Shah (I would prefer a "e" in his name) still there ? The world can see he can't bat. And then opening with Duminy and dropping Jayasaurya for a do or die match ?

MI deserved to loose the way they did.

I have switched loyalties since yesterday.

MI need a better skipper - get Polly Kaka back as skipper.

Yes, its frustrating the way MI lose. Team morale was completely down & chances of making into first 4 seems to be a distance dream for them.

Good tight bowling from CSK. 130-140 max is what i expect RR to score.

Hopefully CSK goes back to the top of the table after this match.
