@ NC kahani main twist. Now MI are also vying for a berth.

Well seems like my prediction went hay wire. Jayasuriya proved a point of being able to bat against an Indian bowling attack with 1 hand standing on 1 leg and with one of his eyes closed.

Well i seriously feel the ground was pretty small but CSK never took advantage of that. Hopefully i get tickets to watch MI as they take on KKR.

@Khaadu In case someone plans on a jiggy it would be awesome to watch that.

I just hope DC and RC start waking up and getting some spoilers by defeating some teams which are in the top of the table. Will get more masala as required by our director goutham

Definitely. IMHO, Pollock is a better captain. He has led South Africa successfully for a pretty long time. Also, he's a genunine allrounder. So he understands both the bowler's and batsman's psyche better than someone like Sachin. I would have persisted with Pollock as captain even if Tendulkar played.
Hats off to Sanath Jayasuriya. He played in the style that made him famous.
NC, you're right. Sachin pretends the ball kept low every time he gets bowled. Don't know how he can do that when he's so short anyway!

DD v DC

Game of Pride for DC.
Must win for DD, if they want to top the table.

Even the DC cheer-leaders are working hard: Here they visit Taj for insipiration.

Royal Challenge slips behind Blender?s Pride- Liquor-Cons. Products-News By Industry-News-The Economic Times

Quote:
Royal Challenge, the iconic Indian premium whisky and the presenting sponsor of the Bangalore IPL team, is no longer the undisputed leader at the premium end of the whisky market. French drinks giant Pernod Ricardís local whisky Blenderís Pride is staking claim to the pole position that clearly belonged to Royal Challenge for about two decades.
Anything got to do with IPL? Cricket?

@ diabloo - I have asked you earlier and I ask you again - do you work for a news channel ? I ask because it's amazing the way you come up with statistics and news items related to the IPL. Really.

Would be a DISASTER as far as RR are concerned ... I hope the authorities can convince them that their butts are safe and nothing to worry about .

Make friends with the paparazzi to get the papa

Note: In Tamil, a girl is sometimes referred to as papa. A term popularized by old actor Asokan.

The IPL 'auctioned' batsmen offering the best return on investment
(After 34 matches; expressed in terms of US dollars paid so far for contributing each 'run' )
eg: Shane Watson's 1 run cost $138.



Who are the batsmen offering the best value?

Big Ticket players (cost per run):

Deccan Chargers finally got their batting & batting order right !!! By leaving out Laxman, they have the best batting line up :
  1. AC Gilchrist
  2. Shahid Afridi
  3. HH Gibbs
  4. RG Sharma
  5. SB Styris
  6. Y Venugopal Rao
  7. DB Ravi Teja
Their next matches are:
v Mumbai Indians
v Kings XI Punjab
v Bangalore Royal Challengers
v Chennai Super Kings

If they don't change the batting line up, I bet they will win all their remaining matches

They need to work on their bowling. But all these a bit late in the tournament - they must have played this line-up from match 1. The team management got carried away with I-CON players, misfits for captains.
