Hey, Dravid is a senior player and he supports Kallis & Joshi as they are also senior players.

VVS batted well last night, but it was his denial of strike to gilly & gibbsy that lost them the opportunities. He should have taken a single of the first ball of every over.

Hmmm...most of the senior players in this match are not even able to rotate the strike including Dravid,Ganguly,Laxman etc.

Well don understand y is sunil joshi still playing? Because of hm the talent pool of juniors in the state ranji team is also not getting a chance. Time for him to say goodbye.
Dravid himself should tell himself " Dude i am not playing well lets give others some chance" Not tellin everyone main kheloonga!!!

Chennai are indeed batting.
BTW, Chennai batting line up makes up a pathetic reading - no Hayden .
I can see Delhi players rubbing their hands in glee

I thing Sehwag is holding McGrath & Asif back to unleash them on Dhoni & Raina

Update:
Sehwag brings himself on & strikes 1st ball !!

8.1 Sehwag to Patel, OUT, and he strikes first ball, as Parthiv slashes a short one up in the air straight to the the fielder at short third man, who didn't have to do a thing, just pouch the catch
PA Patel c Mahesh b Sehwag 21 (20b 3x4 0x6) SR: 105.00

Sehwag does it again, he's a proven partnership-breaker. Delhi have taken a second.

Things are going slow at the moment. Just 1 run in the 16th over.
Dhoni's probably itching to walk down the pitch and send the ball to the stands.
(ah..if only I could hit 6s & 4s like him..)
EDIT: Dhoni just got out!

I feel chennai might win today but it is going to be a nail biting finish.

I swear Dhoni is one of the luckiest captain.I hope its not yet another last over where jogi sharma pulls it off.

I am hoping Ntini's inclusion proves to be effective and if Murali can pull off some magic the game doesn't necessarily go to the last over. The whole world knows who will bowl it.



EDIT: Sehwag has started off brilliantly.

How do i recall my previous two messages..? :-)

Sehwag is in a hurry to finish the match and don't think the match will last till the last over.
