Why do u still think that CSK will easily sneak into semis??
Without Hayden/Hussey its been all upto Dhoni....!! He's doing allright but the question is for how many more matches can he bail them out of trouble consistently....

Thumbs up Good Morning mates!

lots of surrogate support all around I can see, lol! As in the so-called KXIP supporters cheering MI & the so-called MI supporters cheering RR. And what have you.

the number of people lusting after SRK's rear has also been a revelation!

anyways, to come back to the point, GO KKR, GO! drop Akash Chopra from the next few games - and the Finals are there for you.

and Yuvi, do cry "mumma" cos you need her support to get thru the troubled times ahead.

cheers & lets talk further about this post the 25th, when KXIP are one step closer to extermination. from the IPL.

NC, good point made by Finney, how about a few predictions BEFORE the matches Bro?

The aim is to get your own chosen team to win ... and if that means cheering a MI or a RR or a DC or a DDD or a RR or a CK , so be it .

SRK is the one who will need the support of the Johars , the Rampals and the others who have a stake in his backside and yes the backside we also wanna see the end of .

Remember our beer bet ???

67 all out. Very hard to believe.
"Arre o kaalia kitna inaam rakhe the re haarnewalo ke liye?"

If its RR vs KXI then GO WARNIE GO! Any team other than KXI.
Yuvi needs more than hugs if he wants to win. And certainly not school boys who gets slapped around.

KKR has dropped out of Top 4. So the new equation is:
1. RR - underdog
2. KXI - bollywood glamour
3. CSK - youth icon/captain's team
4. MI - richest franchise

Like Akshay Kumar said in AJANBI - Everything is planned .

4) RR - IPL needed a underdog team.

This looks set - and it will come down to KKR and CSK playing the finals. Like Akshay Kumar said in AJANBI - Everything is planned.

Talking

KKR: 67/10 in 15.2 (RR: 4.36)
MI: 68/2 in 5.3 (RR: 12.36)

Jayasuriya - 48 in 17, 6 fours & 3 sixes
Shoaib Akthar - 29 runs in 2 overs

It was bound to happen against DD, but KKR were lucky. But they hit the train head on against MI .

Slight change, I feel DD are gonna be up there in the top four, something tells me Dhoni's fluke victory run has ended!

Time to pack your bags yem yes dhoni(anyone noticed how each of his sentences in an interview begin with a not really )

But am really happy to see SRK's team going home, He was ripping out on other teams after winning the first two matches!


KXI - Shaun Marsh, what a batsman he has scored 295 runs in 5 matches, two of which were not outs, so 98 average, brilliant.

Sreesanth - Really irritating character, totally immature somebody tell him to get some silicones if he wants attention so desperately and spare the rest of the cricket lovers, you are not malcolm marshall or courtney walsh yet, so there. And stop giving handjobs in the air

Mallya read your words

Cricinfo - 'I made the right choice in acquiring a franchise' - Mallya

Quote:
Mallya said. "The Royal Challengers is my team and I have full confidence in them. Admittedly, there are issues on team composition and non-performance but I hope that I can enjoy the legitimate privacy of sorting out issues within my own squad."
Quote:
"I continue to believe that I made the right choice in acquiring an IPL franchise which will create great value going forward,"

"I like winning but losing round one doesn't mean that I have lost the fight."

What can you do if your boss loses faith, loses trust, lose hope on you?

Mallya was part of the team involved in the auction and selection of players. It was within his powers to get the players he wanted. If he was in doubt, he should have opened his mouth and should spoken his mind. But he chose to keep quite. When things went wrong, he opened his mouth, put the blame squarely on Dravid. Like a brat-kid, he tried proving that it was not his fault.

Our former President Abdul Kalam says, a leader must know how to manage success, and even more importantly, failure. He also says that the best management lession he has learnt is, When failure occurred, the leader of the organization owned that failure, When success came, he gave it to his team. Mallya has failed miserable here.

Now the clincher:
Q: Would you like to work for Mallya?
A: Sorry, no thanks.

I guess that settles for Mallya.
