Go RCB!

EDIT: now Gambhir gone! 37/3 in 6
Saw them getting out. Not great balls but irresponsible shots!
All hopes on Devillers now(they gonna regret leaving dilshan out, IMO leave sehwag out as he is good for nothing right now).

And i am liking the intensity shown by Bang' today. They need this desperately!

Delhi Daredevils 63/3 (10.0/20 ov)- Now if we can reach 140-150 this can be an interesting match.

Good show by RCB! The team looks pretty settled now. Even with only 4 main bowlers today, they managed to tie down Delhi. Batting looks solid at the top apart from Uthappa. Hoping that law of averages kicks in and he (or Ryder) does well in next match.

Tomorrow I expect KKR (vs RR) and CSK (vs KXIP) to win.

Uthappa needs to be sacked.
Does banglore have any other good replacement?
Or he should be send out at 6 so the opening dismissal may not cause worry in the camp.

I feel delhi was overconfident and lethargic so they deserved to lose.

I had a feeling that yesterday's match was fixed to keep the competition open and alive.

There is Srivatsa Goswami in the team who has done well in all the matches he has played. Last year too he played only 3 or 4 matches and won the emerging player of IPL award. Don't know why they don't include him instead of Uttappa. Also I find it really hard to understand why Akhil is there in the 11 all the time.

However, RCB played really well yesterday, match was good fun inspite of the famed commentary team that includes Rameez Raza, Sivaramakrishna and Co. If in today's match KKR and CSK win, then RCB is through to semis.

@ Mission Safari, its just not yesterday's match, its looking like that for sometime now. IPL viewership reduced, immediately all the matches became last over finishes.

More importantly they could afford to lose, not for RCB.

Let's hope chennai win against punjab today!
This match will be an emotional struggle for my father, considering he's a chennai'ite born and raised in punjab! However, he's leaning on chennai!

cheers

Anything can be fixed in India and specially in cricket. Yes very high possibility it maybe.

Even the first one is interesting as KKR is back in form now.

Chennai will have to lose real bad to Punjab and Rajasthan has to win by a huge margin to throw CSK out of top 4. This is unlikely to happen , so this match cannot be called as a quarter final as both the teams have chances to move to semis.

Rajasthan Royals 69/7 (12.6/20 ov)

I see Rajasthan out of tournament written in large.
Now i want Punjab to win and even after that CSK will be in semifinals due to net run rate.
