Ya Ya, please go to South. Do not come to Delhi.

After all, teams that you have supported till date are going down one after the other

Royal Challengers Bangalore require another 26 runs with 4 wickets and 18 balls remaining.
Exciting finish on the cards!

Bangalore wins!
What a turnaround for them.
But they have to get past Delhi and Hyderabad now if they want to be in semifinals!

Wow, that was close, almost lost chasing a low score!
Next target Delhi, must win again.

MI vs RR should be close, I am betting on MI to win this

Well Played RCB. If Taylor and their batting had clicked on regular basis they would ve almost confirmed their semi final berth. Anyways they got 2 more tough games. I think CSK badly needs to strengthen its bowling - bring in Ntini and replace Oram. No harm in trying a change.

I was thinking along the same lines, why Oram? I remember Ntini performing much better than Oram.

Also the fielding has to improve - right now it's very sloppy.

Mumbai lost today only because of their over defensive tactics. They are playing too much of defensive cricket these days. I didn't understand the point of having Sanath and Sachin at 4 & 5. They are two of the best opening batsmen in the game. At least one of them should have opened if not both.
RR's way to semis is now cleared. They just need to win one game and they will play against KKR in their last match.

Mumbai Indians played like the Indians of yesteryears - extremely slow to start with, let the pressure build and then crack under it. Still, Abhihek Nayar was good. For RR, Munaf bowled a great last over - no extras.

The last 4-5 overs were fantastic, thrilling and entertaining to say the least.
ThumbsUp to Warne for the captaincy.

Couple of incidents that made me smile apart from the game itself:
a) Warne telling Smith 'FairPlay', when Smith's throw hit the umpire
b) Warne's 'Comeon Billy Boy' to umpire, when appealing (or rather pounding) for Sachin's wicket.

Way to go Royals.
