Dabloo, please stop posting all masala news here, it is getting boring now!

Also I noticed you have something against KKR and Sourav, are you plain jealous? now that your favourite team (RCB) is doomed?

Toss: Sourav Ganguly has won the toss and Kolkata will bat first. And here's the big news - Shoaib Akhtar is playing.
I must say, Akhtar is a brave soul.

Like you, I stay in Bangalore but support Sehwag's team.

The Teams:

Delhi Daredevils:
1 Virender Sehwag (capt), 2 Gautam Gambhir, 3 Shikhar Dhawan, 4 AB de Villiers, 5 Manoj Tiwary, 6 Tillakaratne Dilshan, 7 Amit Mishra, 8 Farveez Maharoof, 9 Pradeep Sangwan, 10 V Yomahesh, 11 Glenn McGrath

Kolkata Knight Riders: 1 Salman Butt, 2 Aakash Chopra, 3 Sourav Ganguly (capt), 4 David Hussey, 5 Tatenda Taibu, 6 Wriddhiman Saha (wk), 7 Laxmi Ratan Shukla, 8 Iqbal Abdulla, 9 Shoaib Akhtar, 10 Ishant Sharma, 11 Ashok Dinda

DD look like a batting powerhouse, but KKR match DD in bowling department. If DD can get David Hussey out cheaply, then they can bundle KKR for less than 100.

I don't think so. Considering Sehwag his the opposition, he wouldn't want his IPL debut to turn out sour

The IPL may face some hurdles with the Jaipur blasts. The Aussies have traditionally been wary of these kinda incidents. Lets see how Warne and Watson react.

DD went in with the right idea - attack Akhtar - but the way they went about it was Mad Max like.

Now I am getting ideas about the IPL. The 4 semi finalist have to be glamarous (SRK& Preity) , one underdog (RR) and one team for which the Youth Icon and India's T-20 captain plays (CSK)

Wow, what a performance by Shoaib Akthar today! I mean really, hats off to they guy. Coming off what must have been a torrid month for him and then coming back and bowling with such intensity from ball 1!! The man has character, and spirit. Superb effort Shoaib Akhtar!

So Sehwag got out on a duck today. What happened to the best batsman in the world according to Diablooo?

NOthing wrong .. every batsman has his bad day -- today was Sehwags !!!

But that KKR won ... I just cant stand the owner of that team and Im praying the other teams handle Akhtar better and keep KKR from making it to the semis

Never thought I'd see the day when I rooted for Shoaib Akhtar but he was simply awesome. I thought it was one of the best bowling displays that I've ever seen in any version of the game. Sehwag was typical but I liked Gambhir's dismissal the most.

Diabloo, give it up man, your predictions aren't working lately.

Hey, since when have you been so bothered about who owns the team? I always thought it was about the players themselves.

Anyway, you better get used to it now as KKR have a strong possibility of making it to the Semis. I know you are supporting the "eye candy" owner's team but there is a life beyond "hugs" you know

Excellent 3 overs from Shoaib changed the game. Now KKR s bowling looks better than before. Its the batting that is a spot of bother. Dada, Hussey, Butt and Shukla are main batsmen. After that nothing great.
