Gilly played superbly. One of the best demonstrations of big hitting.

true true. While at it let us invite the Pigeon too.

Coming to the IPL, I would love to see DC vs RC. Hopefully Gilly will score the fastest century in the finals to win the cup. That would be a real sight to watch.

It looks like the final is going to between DC and RC, but today was a bad day for DD or will say gilly maid it bad for them.

i am not sure if anyone noticed shewags comments after the toss....so over confident nd also made a stupid statement that "they lost to RC yesterday for a score of 160 & have never beaten Delhi in the past"

Gilli has shown him what's quite unbelievable for him...!

CSK has the upper hand for today's match. RC has a chance if they tame Hayden and Raina . They need to handle Murli well and hope Ross/ Pandey deliver today.

It's a 20:20 match and anything can happen. I am happy for deccan chargers with what they have achieved this year( they deserved evry bit of it)

My gut feel says the RC's are going home with the cup.

As well as CSK bowled against Punjab and with the RC's not having a great batting line up - I still feel Dhoni is going to loose today.

I am hoping the gut feeling is wrong though.

Shewag tried to play a horrible shot y'day. If he would have played a decent shot at least another 20 runs could have been added to DD's total. Anyways Gilly bludgening the ball all over the park was a treat to watch

I am backing RCB for going all the way and winning IPL2.

Kallis, Pandey, Kholi and Boucher should play in top 5. Boucher needs to be promoted up the order, he has been wasted by RCB at number 6 or 7.

Kumble I think should again open the bowling in this game, this can be a trump that may work in there favour against Haydos.

here are the reasons why i want RCB to win the title:

1. Its my hometown team
2. No one gave RCB a chance
3. It would cap off an amazing run
4. There are way too many haters against RCB
5. A DC-RCB match would be the epic battle of the IT cities
6. if RCB wins finally bangalore can be proud of something!
7. I wanna go to the victory parade yay!
