It was a great match today for RCB
i think, it has been their bowlers who played key role in restricting the CSK to low score from a starting run rate of over 10 per over.
ofcourse, manish pande, rahul dravid played fabulous.
Vijay Mallya is at last beaming.

If they keep rolling like this tomorrow, This year IPL will for sure go to RCB.

YES! RCB. Kumbles is King! Hopefully tomorrow will be a great game and RCB emerge champs. No matter what happens tomorrow, they have played brilliantly! Let Gilly put on a show but let RCB win!!

What is amazing is that the two bottom ranked teams are the top two this year. Amazing! Talk about rooting for the underdogs!

Amazing feeling! what a win! RCB looked like in full control after first 5 overs. RCB particularly bowled well in last 10 overs. Thats where CSK lost it. But things got a bit tight when Dravid got out, but thanks to Taylor and Kohli, we are in the finals!

Manish Pandey has been a big plus, he has joined the party at the right time. This kid is a real talent

Vijay Mallya must be really ecstatic now, his cricket team has reached IPL finals, his F1 team has had the best qualifying performance till date. Tomorrow can be even sweeter for him!
Hoping for the double delight tomorrow for RCB and Force India!

SO - half way there already. The way things have changed for the RCB is astonishing - good performances rather steady performances and a bit of luck (coming from No.7 to the finals) - I feel it's going to be RCB all the way.

More than KP - it would be a ONE TIGHT SLAP on VJM's face. He preferred a non Indian skipper.

btw - anyone noticed how Dhoni was incognito through out this tournament. I feel his mind has become stale with the continuos cricket being played - his spontaenity in captaincy is no where to be seen. He looks tired - I just hope this gap of 10 days rejuvenates him enough - we need him to fire as a captain big time in the T-20 WC.

Bangalore really overpowered CSK, and I knew it was coming.

Dhoni should learn some tricks or two from Kumble as far as captaincy is concerned.

Why Ntini wasn't given a chance remains a mystery! CSK bowling except Murali was no better than high school.

Everyone knew that CSK was all about Hayden when the league started.

So, it's my dream final line up.

They could have given a chance for Hussey or Ntini instead of Oram, who did not bat and did not bowl also in the semifinal.

Anyhow Bangalore has reached finals and are planning to take the trophy home, wish them a good luck.

Anyone else surprised that both bottom teams from last year made it to the final this year?

Imagine how much the bookies would have earned!! Anyone willing to propose a conspiracy?

So when does the finals start IST? The semis and the finals are the only ones I intended to watch. Too much cricket.
