The needle started earlier in the day when Gambhir was shouldered by Henriques.

Arrey babas, they never crossed any lines. This is just a way of showing their friendship to all the world. Just recollect how these 2 celebrate success, it is the same. 2 friends showing love for each other. I would have given both KKR & RCB 100 points for fair play award (IPL will laugh all the way to the bank).

Can't believe what i saw today, both teams celebrating thinking they had won!

Only Sir Ravindra Jadeja could get out and yet score runs to win a match!!What a legend.

Even i thought Bangalore won the match at the first glance but as you said only Sir Jadeja can get out and win a match! I have seen these kind of twists taking place in cricket matches shown in Bollywood movies but this is the first time am seeing such thing happen in reality. It reminds me the last ball scene from the movie Lagaan. Even there the losing team thought they have won the match at first!

Had the fielder who took the catch had some presence of mind, there could have been a chance to save the match in favor of RCB. They went celebrating as soon as the catch was caught ignoring the umpire's call. This gave ample time for CSK to complete two runs and eventually win the match.

Here is what Dhoni tweeted:
'When you give Sir Ravindra Jadeja one ball to get 2 runs he will win it with one ball to spare' !!

But what was the ultimate joke was what Jadeja said:
'I was celebrating because I thought there was no third man.'

No, they had won the match already when they ran the first run. The no ball got them the other run.

Dont think so. one Run was due to the no ball and they completed one Run by crossing over.

3 batsmen, 1 Maha keeper batsman and 6 allrounders and still we could not chase 160 runs. CSK should have learnt never to keep Hussey out. Anirudh can come in place of Vijay, not Hussey.

With the RCB on the roll, the coming Sat match with RR would witness frenzy atmosphere. On paper RCB seems to be the stronger team with a rock solid batting line up. Hope Galye fires on all cylinders.

Have managed to get a seat inside the stadium and that too in the corporate box. Any other BHPian going to the game can shout out.

Rock Solid Batting?? Apart from Gayle , Kohli and AB please temme who has clicked? The middle order is most fragile . RCB is revolving among these 3 for batting. Their bowling is bit better now cos of Rampaul . I still feel RCB should pick Henriques in place of Mcdonald to boost the middle order.

Mumbai Indians badly need two more mentors. Hope they make the transition from playing towards it

IPL speed gun was clocking 140+ for Vinay Kumar. Now for the real fast bowler (Morne Morkel),
