Hey Diabloo it was Hussey and Saha amazing partnership almost got them there; Das he was the 5th wicket to fall i guess;

It was a fantastic display of big and clean hitting by Hussey and Saha and it was coz of their display that match went so far.
They were like 55/4 in about 10overs and ultimately fell short of 9runs chasing 179.

In the end it was Piyush Chawla hitting Ishant Sharma in last over for 4,4,2,4,6 which made all the difference on a batting wicket.

RC celebrated the win against DC as if they had won the IPL final and followed it with some great fireworks.

Chennai Superkings 84-5 in 13 overs. Excellent Bowling from Royals. Seems like they heading for the top of the table if they pull this one off!

Before IPL started Hyderabad was the strongest team and Rajastan was the weakest team.
But after the teams have played six matches, Rajastan tops the table (10 points) and Hyderabad bottoms the table (2 points).

How many out here thinks that IPL has destroyed the real cricket ?I personally hate watching IPL . Its more of making controversies and catching media attention.

The crying part of Sreeshanth was disgusting. He is one mallu who is been hated by most of the Keralites themselves.

+1 Absolute mockery of the game. Players being successfull in a single match are being called superstars.

Sehwag & Gambhir are on a roll. Come to think of it, a lot of the good performers are from home. No surprises.

Sehwag is bigger on average & biggest in strike rate
Here is the chart:

Personally, I feel Rohit Sharma has been the stand out performer. When the chips are down, he has performed. He has a bright future.

Sehwag and Gambhir ofcourse are sending the bowlers on a leather hunt. But against MI, they came unstuck because of imaginative field placement by Pollock. He packed the offside and the bowlers kept the ball at good length and just outside off stump. One could clearly see the discomfort of Gambhir and Sehwag handling this situation.
