Sreeshanth should be considered for the next bollywood movie - as a COMIC Villain!
Where else can you see a bowler clobbered for half a dozen sixers, getting a wicket finally and then believing he has reached nirvana!

CSK should be re-named as King Haydos & Co.

Looks like nothing can ever go right for KKR.
They posted a good score today and they are still going to lose. Anyway, I'm happy RCB is winning.

Till they have bowlers like Agarkar how can they win
Ishant was a disappointment too. I don't feel he is a good 20-20 bowler.

Bowlers from both teams were horrible in death overs today.
If not for Ross Taylor RCB wouldn't have won. Good to see him back in form. I hope they persist with Ryder for next game too, if he clicks, then the batting will get the confidence back.
At the same time i feel sad for McCullum, he is again let down by his players.

Great to see MI winning ....... I think they need to score the remaining runs quickly to stay ahead in the race .....

Don't understand why Sreesanth is playing in this KXI team.. he is a big liability .. VRV would have been a much better choice ....

Hayden is right. Sreesanth is overrated. One day, Yuvraj is going to slap him.
Brett Lee and Irfan Pathan were superb.
Mumbai Indians win!

Of course, I love him getting whallopped. Even at the hands of foreign players. Complete contrast to what happened in Australia

Only ONE player I'd say - Ishant Sharma. He needs to learn how to control his temper - after all, he is supposed to be a player of international standards. He was a disaster yesterday.

MI sailed through with luck favoring them. BRAVO was dropped in single digits by Pathan, though a bit tough chance & even Sachin's dropped catch at 9.6th ball would be a turning point for them

Who will get into the 4th position is the question now?

Sad to see Mc Cullum cry after he did all that he could. Happy for RCB though but if not for Ross Taylor, Bangalore wouldn't have won. It was clearly a one man show and was totally Ross Taylor's day, exactly like how Mc Cullum won the first match single handedly during IPL 1. I thought Agarkar bowled well but was plain unlucky as always. Rahul Dravid seems to have become Mendis's bunny by getting out yet again to the same bowler albeit different format.

The new breed of Indian cricketers seem to have developed really bad and disrespective attitude as can be seen on television, prime example being the likes of Ishant Sharma, Sreesanth, Rohit Sharma and ofcourse Harbhajan and Yuvraj, also to an extent Dhoni. There is a lot for them to learn in terms of behavior at a public front from the likes of Dravid, Tendulkar and Kumble. The new breed are very abusive, intolerant and lack any sense of occasion, if they develop these qualities to go with their talent, India can become the undisputed cricketing superpower that it dreams of.

Hard earned success can make you humble. Today's cricketers have achieved a lot (money, fame) in a relatively easy manner.
Yuvraj and Sree(a)shanth are the most arrogant ones.
