Its the test team in T-20 format. How did you vote for this? They lost once again y'day. It has become an habit of losing the game after game for BRC. They have big hitters like Cameroon White and Misbah which they are not picking for playing. The Captain should ask Kallis to sit out and include Misbah. Dunno why Dravid is not doing this. Is he afraid of somebody or just supporting the senior players as he is a senior player.

But he is second highest bidder in the IPL for the team after Mumbai and both the teams are not doing good. How can he make the profits? Could not catch your point though.

According to me it is either "Rajsthan" or " Chennai" or "Delhi"

Where in Hyderabad and Mohali may have some surprises... if gilly clicks then they would be top runners!

Today's will be a match to watch. Hyderabad Vs Punjab. Both teams are equally balanced. If Gilly fires today as he had done before, Punjab will have to go home w/o points.

Who are those quality bowlers in Bangalore team? RC bowlers are at going at 9.21 runs per over - slightly better than Mumbai.

I spoke to soon, he went for 7.33 runs an over today. Still better than Agarkar & David Hussey though (11.6 & 14 so far). Lol

7.33 rpo in T20 is very respectable. Dinda is sure a find of IPL, so are Gony and Asnodkar.

2 wickets in Umar Gul's 2nd over, RR are now 115/4

Ntomer, you are actually correct, for a T20, 7.33 is not so bad, it would be terrible in a 50 over ODI. I stand corrected. Yes, Goni is another great find as well, I like his run up & action. Has a good height too.

Gony has been the best find of IPL so far followed by Yusuf Pathan,Dinda,Ravinder Jadeja and A.Nayar.

Gony is successful probably because he is not experimenting too much and concentrating only on good line and length.

197 will not be easy going for KKR. Especially when Mccullum has left. Dada & Butt will have to give a flying start.

Ganguly and Hussy left bit too much for the end.

next match is b/w two of my favorite teams but i will be cheering for Punjab ofcourse.
Team chasing may an edge if it doesn't have to chase >200.
