Does Dhoni dislikes Ntini or what? Opting him out of the entire series
(that too on his home grounds) is bit weird. He is the best one in the CSK fast bowling lineup.

I really want RCB to win, I think they have played good cricket and tough cricket.

Also it will give VJM something to cheer about in sports.

OT ::: I am also hoping that Force India F1 score there first points.

What a yorker !!

Also, had it been any other batsman other than the Indian captain, Appam would have been all over him with his antics

Rightly said Eddy, our Appam would have remembered the famous Nehra incident, the incident due to which Nehra is unable to make it to national squad.

CSK in deep trouble!
I really hope now Punjab don't mess up the batting as less than 130 is chaseable easily on a batting pinch.

Brilliant bowling from Punjab. The score seems gettable for sure. But Harsh i dont think we can call it a batting pitch by all means. I think it was quite a slow track. It all depends on Yuvi & Sangakkara.

Karan i saw the first 6 overs. The ball was indeed coming on the bat nicely and outfield is very fast. Maybe it slowed down afterwards which i haven't seen.
However good start by Punjab and they should win comfortably.

Damn, Punjab lost. No chance of semis now, their RR is so bad!

The only chance is that RCB should loose very very badly against DC. This is highly improbable.

What a bowling display by CSK. I was mesmerized by the bowling spells of Murali, Ashwin and Raina. Dhoni has really thought about the team selection for this match. Full credits to Dhoni for this win.

From the calculation that I did, RCB will be out under these cases
- if DC bat first, DC should win by margin of 68 or more runs
- if RCB bat first, DC should win within 11 overs

So its almost certain now. DD, CSK, DC and RCB in semifinals. Only question is who plays who in Semis.

I am betting on RCB to win again tomorrow. So it will be RCB vs CSK, DD vs DC.

Yeah first few overs of CSK the ball was indeed coming nicely to the bat. Once the spinners came it was getting tougher. Great win by CSK. Is Hayden Fit for the Semi's?? Looks like Dhoni will never pick Ntini. So swap Oram for Morkel.

And i read in the papers that Hussey is back. So more confusion for Dhoni.

For a change CSK bowled & fielded well, and the result was obvious.

The turning point of the match was Yuvi getting out, was deceived by that ball which remained low.
