The biggest danger to the league though is the spectre of match-fixing. And it is a daily from New Delhi that has exposed the presence of a top Delhi District Cricket Association (DDCA) official sitting in the Delhi Daredevils dressing room during Thursday's match at the Kotla, busy talking on his cell phone. The man in question is a well known bookie in the Capital.

diabloo,as i mentioned few days back its the mindset of some guys(Dravid and Charu) which is probably the only reason for their failure.Rahul has been wrong right from selecting the whole team at auction and then choosing playing XI before each match.How can they pick players like Kumble,Sunil Joshi,J Arun Kumar for T20?

How can they fall short of moderate total of 129 against KKR when they had lost only 4 wickets?This is just unacceptable and shows lack of commitment.Why dint Boucher took few risks before last over,only he can answer.

BTW why i am saying this?I should be celebrating my fav team's win.What a batting display by two aussies.
Good bowling by Pb bowlers to restrict them under 145.

I was waiting for some players like Badrinath,Venugopal,Tiwary,Balaji,Nehra,VRV and few others to perform and finally they have answered.Its good to know that we got a good pool of players.

Thats what you call ' getting Steam Rolled ' ... This team is unfortunately in shambles and the press statements by Mallya , the unceremonius sacking of their CEO , players being shuffled , 2 of the top players being totally clueless has lead them to be in teh situation they are in .

Good to see Yuvi & Co come back after the defeat in the last game !! Roll on Yuvi ..

Good snaps Daibloo;

Now that we know the top 3 for sure who will occupy the 4th Spot: Delhi; Mumbai or Kolkatta

Mumbai have a good chance of making it to the semis. They have won three in a row and with Sachin coming into the side, can be a real morale booster for them.

Delhi have struggled lately. Would be tough for them. Kolkatta are in with a chance as well if they continue their recent run of form.

ShahRukhKhan feels the pinch !! Five Kolkata players asked to leave team hotel
Quote:
In an apparent bid to cut cost, the Kolkata Knight Riders team management on Monday "politely" asked five of the players, who are yet to feature in the side's 14-member squad in any match, to leave the team hotel.
Some feel this is yet another John Buchanan's stupid idea
Quote:
Apparently coach John Buchanan feels that he has found his set combination and had no need for the fringe players," one of the players said.

Didn't expect this from a team that has spent so much money on advertising, hype and designer clothing. Looks like Shahrukh Khan feels it more necessary to bring film stars to the ground rather than cricketers.
I don't like John Buchanan either.

I never liked John Buchanan earlier too. Seems like SRK is feeling bad at being beaten by Preity's team.

Some RCB wise cracks:

Jacques Kallis: The most expensive bench-warmer in the IPL !!
(Marsh alone has made 295 runs in the competition, from just five matches. When you consider that he, Pomersbach and James Hopes cost less than half of what Bangalore paid out for Jacques Kallis )

Kumble: Bloke searching for his first wicket in T20, but he waits for someone in the stands to throw the ball back to him.

Charu Sharma's experience in Cricket: The ubiquitous host and the guy who makes trash like ‘Fourth Umpire’
(but Mallya asked him to recruit cricket players. )
