MI,

19 to get in 6
13 in 6
9 in 5
8 in 4
6 in 3
4 in 2
2 in 1

KXI win by 1 run

Last over: 1 six, 1 four, 1 noball, 3 close run outs (Last being Johnty style by Yuvi - he deserves a special hug) !!

Too much tension. I like RCB. They finish their match without any tension

What a thriller !! damn i wanted MI to win . Hard luck. I guess Uthappa 's batting was the turning part the other being the hopeless running.

Why did Nehra and Fernando go for the 3rd run ?? Guess thats why they are called tail enders

If Nehra has made the 3rd run, MI still would have lost . They must have stopped at 2nd, evenif 3rd was available.

Dravid calls tails and he's called correctly, Bangalore are batting first .

So we get yet another opening pair - Kallis & Goswami open.

Uthappa has to relook at the way he has been performing in the IPL so far. All those big $$$ spent on him are looking down the drain at the moment. With his huge frame, he is not even able to put a ball out of the ground. Woefully short on confidence. I think he will sit out the next match and someone else will get a look in. Though, not sure who!

Nonetheless, fantastic match.

They shouldnt be allowed to play next season if they have the same team.

They are making far too easy for opponents and thus making matches predictable.

Poor Mallaya

I saw the starting 11 and switched off my tv, as long as they don't drop Kumble, Kallis and Vinay Kumar(today Zaheer is injured, it seems, so today is an exception) I wont see any of the RCB matches, I donno why Dravid still has faith in Kallis and Kumble. White instead of Kallis and Arun Kumar instead of Kumble would have a been a decent team.

I reckon they wont get past 125 runs this match, unless Misbah+Boucher pull some surprises out their behind!

Yup Uthappa played useful knocks in the beginning of the IPL. He aint consistent and he s trying to play shots that have never been in the book.
I guess he should concentrate on the book shots more than his hairstyle.
Coming back to RC vs CSR. Yet another poor batting by RC. Mr. Wall is trying to prove he s fit for 20-20.

What a contrast btw the 1st and 2nd match today!

Tough luck for MI, they should have won, but some unnecessary run outs did it in!
Yuvi is a aggresive captain, he should replace Dhoni at the national level!

RCB as usual is playing a Test format of T20, and Mr Wall is showing everyone that he can bat!

Preity found that Yuvi to be not upto the mark. So Yuvi has to take directions from Jayawardene & Sangakara. Half the decisons on the field are made by these two.

BTW, Ganguly makes a better captain than Yuvi .

RCB end up with 126/8 - a new record.
Its the lowest first-innings score for any team that has batted through 20 overs in IPL.
