Anyways, all is well that ends well.

Where is n_c ? Its him vs me again today
A very stupid decision when they had powar and sreesanth available.
Even brett lee leaked runs in his last over.
Rohit sharma played a rash shot and that costed deccan the match.
However now this makes table very interesting.

2 more chances for Kolkata left. can they spoil anyones party?

Today CSK will win i feel.

Also for daredevils Sehwag and gambhir needs to contribute now. Dilshan and Devilliers are saving them match after match but this cant go on for semifinals.

Not really. Raina and Badrinath have been batting quite consistently and we always have dhoni and morkel to back them up.

However I agree fielding has been horrible and it is pulling us down.

Bowling has been average - nothing spectacular. IMO, Ntini needs to come in instead of Oram.

cheers

Raina has been progressively declining, Dhoni was good in one match only, Badrinath is also not consistent enough, there is no company for Hayden at the top. Albie has not been able to get the ball off the square. In fact he has not hit a 6 in this IPL. Just hope that all these come together when it matters. Yep, I agree Nitini for Oram. Oram has been pathetic.

Oram has been doing some very good fielding and catching though
Ya Albie has hit some poor form and he is not the same batsman we saw last IPL.
I feel CSK needs to lift their game if they wanna be in finals and win it.

EDIT: It seems Haydos is not playing today. I guess they are experimenting with different players.

CSK-83/2 in 10 overs, with openers gone. A decent foundation to build on.

Chennai Super Kings 188/3 (20/20 ov)
Kolkata Knight Riders 10/0 (1.0/20 ov)

Hard to imagine if KKR can win this, only if Brendon can do some magic(i doubt though).
14 matches- one win, simple WOW

I seriously think Oram should give way to Ntini as already mentioned. Not to worry Harsh we ll meet you in the finals. Now where is Eddy bhai?

Raina clicked today . So did Morkel. Actually i think Morkel should come after Raina to actually start hammering around. Like Dhoni i too think Morkel takes time to start hammering around. Dhoni comes to steady the ship , but no harm in trying to promote Morkel.Overall CSK's bowling needs more strength and i dont think fielding will improve at current rate.

Update - Kolkata Knight Riders 65/1 (8.1/20 ov)
90% of that is smashed by Brendon. All hopes on him only.Ganguly was pathetic!

@Karan - Ya the only other team except CSK which can qualify for finals is Deccan. I dont see anyone else being a threat honestly. CSK, Daredevils,Deccan- Winner will be among these and final between any two of these will be great to watch.

I am right here Karan. In the finals, Haydos will fail and Viru will fire
