I like Yuvi's aggresive attitude, though he is little over-aggresive!

He needs to be bit composed like Sourav/Dhoni.

I will change the poll once the semi finalists are confirmed.

Personally I am hoping for a RR v/s CSK finals.

The least expensive team v/s the team with the most expensive player.

Anyway, I thought the strike rate was fine till Saha was out & then he was a little extra cautious since there weren't too many others around. I didn't see any asking rate of 14 till much later lol

Racism in IPL?

'They should have asked for 12 blondes'

Quote:
Newton and Sherinne Anderson, who alleged that they were asked to leave the Mohali ground without performing on April 19 because their "skin is too dark".
Quote:
"It was our second day in India, and our first match," recalled Newton. "Everything was fine the night before, when we had practice." But the next day, when the girls took the field before the Yuvraj Singh-led Kings XI in the April 19 match against the Chennai Super Kings, they were "asked to leave" the grounds prematurely. When they asked why, Wizcraft employees, they alleged, told them that their skin colour was "too dark", they said.
Quote:
"They should have just asked for 12 blondes," Aldana said grimly. "I feel horrible that they had to experience this. This sort of situation should never occur again."

The most TALENTLESS & BRAINLESS batsman (?) fails for DC again. What a FALTU batsman he is.

He will most probably beg for a place in any team next year, I guess. And wasn't it him who said that the Pakistani players have been undervalued during the auction ? Now let him look at his performance and check whether he deserved what he got this year ?

I bet when Afridi when asked about his poor form will Blame it on the Cheerleaders . ( Apparently he s getting distracted by looking at them in skimpy outfits). CSK need 148 to win. Quite a gettable target when DC's bowling aint that great.

well said N_C.

He is playing cricket for the last 12 yrs but apart from scoring few centuries against India and couple of other good innings,he hasn't done anything else.
He is probably most over-valued(not just IPL) and much hyped player in cricket world,like Shoib Akhtar.


BTW the way current match is going on,Mumbai team needs lots of prayers from its fans.

Edit--I spoke too soon.CSK lost their 2nd wicket.Come on Mumbai...oops...come on DC

RR win all their matches at home.
DC lose all their matches at home.

Semi-Final line up:
DD v RR
CSK v KXI
