I would rather have teams chasing in a final, I still feel DC has a better chance even after Gilli is out 1st over.

After RR out of the reconing it really doesnt matter to me who ever wins . I just hope we have a great match worthy of a final

What a spell from Kumb+Lee. Fantastic.

RCB have bowled really well, they are in with a very strong chance here, what a turn around of things for them.

Kudos to RCB.

2008 IPL RR where the weekest team and they won, 2009 IPL DC were ranked last and they won.
Seeing the trend I guess it will be KKR 2010:P

RCB had a good chance, but couldn't pull it through!

Great captaincy by Gilly, kudos to DC, they deserved it!

RCB did a KKR. Pity. I was rooting for them.

Congratulations to Deccan Chargers Hyderabad, they won a tight and well fought match to lift the cup. Feeling sorry for Royal Challengers Bangalore though, unfortunately there can only be one winner. However, IPL 2009 was simply terrific and awesomely gripping, Indian cricket rules.

ditto! I stopped watching in the middle as i thought Deccan was down and out. But they recovered beautifully towards the end. Bangalore played well, but Deccan held their nerves and outplayed them in the end.
Congrats Deccan. A well deserved win against all odds and expectations.

Well done DC. Team that played better today won. DC bowled well under pressure. RCB had their chance and didn't take it.

What a boring speech by the President and Lalit Modi topped off by some pathetically limp performance from Akon (the lip sync is totally off)

Shucks - after that exciting match we have to watch this rubbish.

Bring out our Bollywood beauties and watch the world go wild

Kumble led from the front, did a fantastic job with the bowling. Unfortunately, the batsmen didn't pitch in. The drop by Dravid really came back to bite them.

DC batted OK, but bowled and fielded superbly. So it was deserved.

Remember how people said 20-20 is a batsmen's game? How they said Test bowlers like Kumble shouldn't be in the team. After Kumble's performance today, who can say that?
