Symonds cannot replace Suman. They will have to drop a foreign player for that.

KKR bad luck continues consecutively in the fourth season. This time they were better but far off from the goal still. MI should go through after beating RCB and then CSK, IMO.

Yes that is right. I guess i was really excited with the win when i posted it and forgot about the 4 foreign player rule Realised it later after logging off.

Somehow i feel MI has been persisting with Pollard for some time now without much results to show other than his brilliant fielding. Would it be better to replace him with Symonds considering that spin and slow pitch would be the order in Chennai. Symonds himself is also a brilliant fielder. This would be a very bold decision for MI to take.

They are through but they made quite a mess of themselves inspite of such a brilliant start given to them by Blizzard and Sachin. The game shouldn't have gone to the last over in the first place.
But I am so damn happy KKR lost, and MI won!!
Now just hope that they go on and win the final too, though CSK would be tough to beat.

hehe!! bad luck, continues inspite of Ganguly not being there. They deserved it for not showing respect to their players in the first 3 edition. And how badly they must be repenting not retaining atleast Gayle in their side. Poor them!!
Now what would Shahrukh say to the team
"KKR tension mat le yaar, agle saal ke baad fir ek agla saal hai yaar"

My say is, Vettori must have hold either of one for the last penultimate over.

Tomorrow would love to watch Pollard vs Gayle

They must first face RCB, nay, Gayle, to reach the finals. And knowing RCB, they're not going to go down without a fight. A Gayle-Kohli-Pomersback-De Villiers dominated batting-card would end MI's chances completely, I reckon. RCB has upped their bowling as well.

I think Malinga vs. Gayle would be a more interesting contest. Pollard has not performed this season. Guess that's a good thing for the other teams!

The reason for Pollard not performing is coz he comes down the order so late that he does not enough time for gauging the situation. All he is asked to come out and hit sixes and fours. You cant expect him to that always.
Also sending Rayudu lower the order will also result in the same case. He needs to be sent one down so that he can free his arms and play.

The first 5-6 overs of the either innings of match between RCB and MI will decide who goes to the final.

Pollard cannot play spin to save his life. More than his batting its his bowling that concerns me.

I thought that is his job and his performane appraisal needs to be done on this parameter

But i think in a couple of matches he had time to settle in but did not seal the game. For example in the last league match against KKR.

Is there any suitable replacement for Suman? If yes i would go with that replacement and swap Pollard for Symonds.

C'mon you can't be serious!

He's had several chances. In the 15 matches MI have played, he has had the opportunity to turn the game around at least 5 times. He was in the middle for a good 15-20 balls and that should be sufficient time for someone who's tagged a 'pinch-hitter'.

Again, I'm not sure if you watched the CSK vs. RCB match. It was a well fought match by CSK who seemed down and out 15 overs into their innings. Despite sending Gayle back into the dug-out, RCB posted a brilliant 175.

In a T20 match, no one can decide anything until the last ball has been bowled.

Why no posts here after the 26th of May? IMO two key players should not be captains of their respective teams and should rather play under good captains;
a) Sachin Tendulkar
b) Yuvraj Singh.
