If you think a team needs only 3 batsmen, yes.

The speed gun is going haywire, maybe 'fixed'. One entire over of Vinay Kumar was showing at 147.3 kph. Our Vinay Kumar ????

I still feel the below should be changes compared to previous match:

Agarwal (if he is fit) in place of Rahul; Henriques in place of Mcdonald; MKarthik/Murali in place of RPSingh; Tiwary in place of AKarthik. Hopefully this combination may work.

That speedgun needs immediate intervention.

As i checked, the fastest recorded ball in history was :
' The highest electronically measured speed for a ball bowled by any bowler is 161.3 km/h (100.23 mph) by Shoaib Akhtar (Pakistan) against England on 22 February 2003 in a World Cup match at Newlands, Cape Town, South Africa.

Great run chase by Kings XI Punjab! I didn't understand Dinda venting out his frustration towards the fielder who misfielded when he himself missed a simple chance to run out Miller who eventually won the match! He's another one of those over-rated bowlers. I guess tough luck for Luke Wright, he was the hero who turned villain!

^^ +1.

You get 3 of them, you've got the game. Our bowlers are nothing to speak of really. VK has his off days and the less said about RP Singh, the better. I don't even know why he is on the team. There is a reason why MI didn't want him.

Watching Sehwag strike some form was a pleasure. Even Tendulkar got some runs under his belt today. Good to watch, that. And could someone tell me why Rohit Sharma does not play like this for the country?

KingsXI played well today. 5/2 was the score card when they started out and it truly looked like they were gone for all money! I feel sad for the Pune Warriors. They really do look like they put everything into it but it just never works out. Maybe, somewhere in the BCCI office, there's a room with a chest of drawers and in the bottom drawer is a little script-book that says Pune and Delhi aren't in it for IPL6.

Mr.Cricket proves that he is indispenable to any team that he plays. Very well timed chase by Hussey and Raina (helped very well by the RR bowlers & fielders). And Bravo Dwayne for finishing it with that last over swipe for six and thanks for the chukka chukka.

I was surprised by the lack of imagination in the "Royals" bowling through out the innings.

Also, I was hoping the last over would be given to Chandila.

It's a Gayle-storm in Bangalore. Fastest ever T20 century, off just 30 balls,

Man, he has just crushed pune warriors. If he continues, he might be able to record the first ever (and probably last) double century. He is insane

I think the 30 ball century is the fastest ever in any form of cricket.

Amidst all the 28, 29 runs overs, Bhuvi has figures of 3-0-8-0.

Indeed, it is the fastest in any format!
I am feeling pity for the Pune bowlers. They will be having nightmares for years to come!
Gayle is absolutely crazy, he has gone mad. I seriously want to see hm scoring 200, at least 150 which is very well possible.

On the other hand, check Bhuvaneshwar Kumar's bowling figure! 8 runs in 3 overs. Stupendous feet
