If CSK and DD meet in finals it would be brilliant. Hope Haydo plays from now on.
Deccan Chargers 47/0 (5.2/20 ov)

Don't underestimate DC!
This match is gonna be a close one and i am with DC
Kallis pulled his hamstring,if RCB loses they have to play Dd tomm' and thats bad news for them!

P.S- Warne is a very gentle, kind noble man who never lies and dupes anyone.Every word he said was true

Indeed brilliant batting by 19 year old, he just kept hitting the ball in the gaps and boy o boy i just loved those sixes hit by him and Kholi. Specially the Kholi ones, as it was for the first time i saw him hitting that hard and long.

RCB are on a roll, have won 7 of last 9 games

Manish Pandey is a good find. He certainly solved some of the problems at the top. Hope the injury to Kallis is not serious and he will be fully fit by Saturday. Otherwise we might see yet another new opening combo

If Kallis doesn't get fit, I guess Ryder will have to fill in.
Uthappa will find it hard to stay in playing 11. He looks down on confidence as well, he dropped a sitter today. Get Goswami or Vinay Kumar in his place and we should be set.

Deccan came in due to better run rate. Its Super Kings vs Royal Challengers - Dare Devils vs Deccan

Deccan can turn party spoilers for any team in the final list, do not whats there in store with Gilli and Symonds on that particular day

Some worries will surface post IPL before the world cup T20:
1. Fitness: T20 is a more aggressive game. Batsmen swing harder, strain more, run and dive more. Fielders also dive more. Bowlers bowl in short spells. I wonder how many of our players will be unfit or injured after this series.
2. Fielding: It's been pathetic! Dropping sitters and misfields have been plenty. I don't know if everything can be blamed on the cold weather and the air currents.
3. Attitude: Ishant, Praveen, Rohit, Yuvraj have shown a further deterioration in their attitude to the game and the opposition. I wonder how many of our players will 'misbehave' in the world cup onfield!
4. Captaincy: Dhoni seems vaguely different in the IPL. He is experimenting more. Somehow I'm not as comfortable with him as I was last World Cup.

Inspite of these I think the IPL has given our players some awesome experience and I hope we win the world cup!

That would be a very long shot. Let's at least get to the semis.

T20 worldcup will be very interesting with Rohit and Raina in superb form. But i have a feeling that rain is gonna play a spoilsport this time .
