Both the royal teams play the other one. That one is going to be fun - Shane Warne v/s Rahul Dravid in the captaincy department.

My pick for today -

Kolkatta (simply because the pitch is dicey and KKR have a better bowling attack) and Rajasthan (they seemed to have gelled as a unit under Warnie).

Dicey pitch ? The pitch in Chennai is a beauty for batting.

Was shocked to hear about Bhajji slapping Sreeshant. Why would Sreeshant cry in the field in first place !!! He should have atleast gone in the dressing room for a bit ! Anyways coming back to the game today. I feel Kolkata has upper hand against Chennai ( But cant trust Dhoni's luck).

He is a kid. And we have heard of him sobbing in the dressing room duirng aussies tour also. This time it is in public. Its not a new thing for him. But to the media it is. He will soon be known as "crybaby(?)" of cricket.

Chennai has also good batsman and bowlers too. Mu guess is whoever wins the toss may make have slight edge over the other side.

Talking

Sreeshanth takes that slap as "shake hand on a wrong side" and said he would not file a complaint against him - Sreesanth not to file complaint against Harbhajan

Cricinfo - Harbhajan and Sreesanth in row

Note: Sreesanth has this nasty habit and he done same stuff for Symonds & others.

Nasty habit ? What ? Going up and saying Hard Luck to the opposition who you have just beaten ?

Coming back to match discussions....BRC has set a target for 136 for RR. Dravid & his company of test players got out very cheaply. I think Dravid should give the captiancy to Virat and retire from 20-20. RR will make the mince meat of the BRC bowling which Dravid is boasting off.

Don't be too sure ... RR are 2 down and just 32 on the board . Its still a very open game -- a few more quick wickets and RR could be staring down the barrel , I want RR to win though ;-) .

Well news is just out that during the customary handshakes in the ground after the match was over, harby punched sree in the face and then proceeded to push him.

High time for him to be banned permanently.

I know .. just referred to your post for continuity.

But personally I am shocked that someone could punch somebody in international cricket. Is this a first time something like this has happened.

Probably BCCI putting all it's weight behind Harby's previous misdemeanours gave him kind of a false confidence that he could get away with anything.
