With having put to rest all the controversies behind them, KKR stand a fine chance this time.

Kings Xi needs to blame themselves for the loss. Bowling was pathetic and fielding below par. If you cant defend 200+ you need to make 300..lol. They need lee asap!

CSK winning this one and rightly so. Dhoni was brilliant in managing his innings!
Tommowor is DD and MI.
My money on DD winning it

Wow ! What a rocking batting display from the MI. And I have noted this time round in the IPL our Indian batters are outshining the imports - feeling at home I guess.

We are getting to see real good talent - Rayadu, Saurabh Tiwary, Yogesh Naggar, Laada - bench strength looks good.

Dhoni is out for 10 days and Gambhir has a hamstring injury - not good signs before the T20 WC. I hope we have our best players fit and fresh for the WC T20.

MI deserved to win. Gambhir erred by chasing on a belter.
Anyways hopefully he and dhoni will be back cos they are really important for t20 WC.

Today my money on RCB. Only a pathan whirlwind can change that!

Finally "Indian" part of IPL has started making sense.

Good that no one listened to that pea brained assuie coach who wanted to increase the cap on no of firangis allowed per match.

yesterday sachin was at scintillating best, he never hit a six, but his strike rate was always 200, when he got out, it was 193. There is a lesson for others in his technique of batting. And i feel that sachin is getting better with age, i think he is playing the best cricket of his life now, wish he carries this on further till the 2011 world cup.

Not just Sachin if you see Kallis batting in previous matches they were pure cricket shots. Bopara is also one guy with no flashes but just pure cricket shots. these guys are proving 20/20 is not just slam bang thank you game.

My take is Mumbai Indians as Sachin at his best ever! Closest competitor will be Bangalore RC.

Kallis doesn't have plans of getting out. His form right now is like Klusener in 99 world cup.
RCB's next match will be close, against MI. I am eager to see Morgan's batting. Hopefully he will get a chance in next match to show why is so much hyped about.
