OMG what a match. I almost cried for SRK. Rohit snatched Victory from the hands of defeat. We have real good chances of getting the 20-20 world cup once again this year

Well played csk . Hayden is in prime form . I still think we need to improve our bowlin and fieldin .
Comin to kkr s match , i think almost everyone will feel for them . How could they screw up with a good total . Agarkar should surely be dropped . Mr kaan mollu gets hammered all over the park . Bad luck to mortaza too . Finally he played . Phew .i hope to see a Csk - delhi finals !

I understand your crying part, but for the wrong person, no offense
IMO SRK deserves whatever result KKR seems to be getting. But I feel really sorry for some of the KKR players who are out there in the middle giving their best under tremendous pressure, notably McCullum. SRK is nowhere to be seen in SA. If he is someone who actually cares for his team, he should have been right there in SA throughout instead of running back to India after realizing that his team is a dud.
About today's match, I think it was more of KKR gift wrapping the win and handing over to DC than Rohit snatching it. If not for that no ball of the first ball, KKR should have won it easily.

SRK vowed not to return to SA until his team starts winning. Good that he saved the air tickets money

And I also wonder why they stopped beaming the Sprite/Nokia ads.

And if we beat Delhi on Tuesday, let's hope that KKR does not run into form and upset the applecart when playing RCB, that will be a make or break game for us !

SRK should sell KKR to Ganguly & concentrate on his movies.

If Ganguly is the owner, coach & captain of KKR, how awesome it will be!

RCB is done with KKR in this IPL. RCB's remaining matches are against DD and DC.

One more close match! Thank God for Rohit Sharma, otherwise Hyderabad wouldn't have come this close. I think Gibbs should play with more responsibility.
Good bowling by Irfan Pathan under pressure.

The opposite team will feel let down. He is always the opposition's match winner.

He will be opening batsman, opening bowler, go back to the shower when he has to field & be there with a big dada smile to take the trophy.

CSK is still not convincing. Batting looks very fragile except for Hayden. Bowling & fielding are below par. They are just plain lucky as they were in the previous IPL after Hayden & Hussey returned to Australia.
