As per reports Malinga should be back in MI for the next match. He is absolutely required and without him MI is hopeless especially when the batting has not been consistent.

By the way where is Mitchell Johnson?

Today's match with a big DD score and Tendulkar coming in to bat reminded me of the 2003 world cup. Tendulkar getting out to tall fast bowlers

Unhappy re: The IPL Thread

Saw the MI vs DD match, Viru and KP literally walked over MI. They had already set the match for a win. Poor MP Sachin, could not do anything with his bat, maybe mind filled with Politics now. The only saving grace once again for MI was Ambatti Raydu who I guess is the most under rated player for India now.

The top order failed yet again for MI.

Two thrilling matches with last ball finishes and there is no activity on this thread? Quite surprising. What an innings by Rayudu and Pollard against Bangalore. Chennai's middle order needs to handle pressure well, they seem to be buckling under pressure quite often.

Phenomenal batting by Rayadu under immense pressure to win in style.

Although I'm sad for my team RCB :(

^^ I agree.

Would have been great to see RCB win that one, considering that Gayle, Kohli and De Villiers did not really perform. Mayank Agarwal's 60 odd in 30 balls was just pure brilliance.

I'm not sure how many people noticed, but he did not slog AT ALL! It was just cool, calm, calculated Cricketing shots. Phenomenal talent, especially for someone who hasn't played on a domestic level yet.

That this involves TOI and India TV is another matter.

Much as I believe that match fixing is not possible, I dont think we can escape spot fixing. Not so easy to prevent, unless we start handling permanent bans

Red face re: The IPL Thread

Saw the MI vs RCB one y'day. Almost all matches are going to the final over. Raydu was simply brilliant, he's my favorite for the most valuable player award. Pollard too chipped in valuable runs.

Why does Harbhajan allow Munaf to bowl the last over? Munaf does not have any special delivery in his armour, bowls full tosses and half pitch balls. If anyone crediting Mayank Agrawal for the wonderful innings, then special bricks for Munaf Patel too.

What was the ruckus all about post the match between Raydu and RCB bowler Harshal Patel

Still had a chance 2 overs to go. I cant believe they had Gayle bowling the last over. It should've been done by the most economical bowler (Muttaiah maybe?)

Yes, Mayank saved RCB's shirt otherwise it would've been a washout+humiliation the way Gayle, Kholi and AB fell.

they used up Muralidahran already. I think Kholi or Dilshan should have bowled. Why they went with Gayle, i dont get it

Do you remember what happened to Kohli in the game against CSK, wait no, Morkel?

I will never give Kohli the cricket ball unless he slogs it out in the nets if he's truly committed. I think he is a fantastic batsman who's hit a lean patch, but I believe he will come good very soon. I would leave him in the number 3 spot and maybe demote him if necessary. Maybe the pressure will work in his favour. At the moment coming to bat at no 3, there isn't really much pressure with Gayle and Dilshan and ABD batting around him.

I would also consider dropping an overseas player and introducing Dirk Nannes into the playing-11. But which overseas player will get the bench for the next game is a question very hard to answer. You can't drop Gayle or AB De Villiers. You can't drop Dilshan because he's been pretty good at the top. You can't drop Murali either and he was picked in the side in place of our Captain Vettori in the first place.

Problem with RCB is we bowl too many loose balls in the last few overs especially. Our bowlers might bowl 2-3 good balls, but the next 3 would be horrible and 10-15 runs will eventually be leaked.

Bowling in the death is something we haven't been able to do successfully.

If RCB sorts that out soon, I'd say there would be no chance any team could beat them.

So is Vettori gone for good? He's a good guy but not exactly a star bowler. That was a good move and Murali has been bowling really good.

With todays loss against Punjab, this is the end for CSK for this IPL. A chance for a hatric to win the title is gone away.
