I guess all good Pak T20 players joined ICL (like Hyderabad )

Pak IPL players not consistent enough, rues Rameez

"The biggest disappointment for me has been the fact that our players have not been able to perform consistently. We have had good performances here and there but not enough," he said.
Quote:
"The fact that our captain, Shoaib Malik has had to sit on the bench would also have him thinking as to the position our players need to occupy in international cricket," Rameez said.
Quote:
A dozen Pakistani players have been signed up by different teams in the IPL but so far only left arm pacer Sohail Tanvir has stood out with some good bowling performances for the Rajasthan Royals team, winning praise from his captain Shane Warne.

Shane Warne have seen some cricket in last 20 years and he says It's one of the best win in my 20-year career

Thats something for the 2 RR youngsters.

This tournament has been all about young guns showing the so-called 'old pros' (of India - the other old Pros have been exemplary!) how it can be done.

I think we need a fresh poll.. This one is a showing some of us have voted when we haven't. not that I wanna change my vote.

Its Chennai thats got my vote. Dhoni will make the boys shine when it most counts. And he will make his 1.5Mil speak

Probably he's spending money -> and making money even though Mumbai's losing (Watch the movie "Race" -> where Saif makes money on his losing horse )
That said, My vote's still wid Chennai SUPER KINGS !!!! Go Doni Go !!!

I too hate that sight of a arrogant aussie lifting the inaugral IPL!

Hoping for a DD vs KXIP final, and Yuvi lifting the Cup!
If anything Yuvi is more arrogant than Warne, atleast shane has a right to be arrogant(actually he is more of a confident person than arrogant) with all those achievements(not just IPL). What is yuvi as a cricketer in front of warne lol?


KXP is where it is becuase of aussies as well(Lee in the first set of games, followed by Marsh and Pomersbach). It's better if he doesn't win the IPL as it may boost his arrogance even more and he will start appearing in more underwear ads instead of practicing.

Well I had two favourites when IPL started, one was Mumbai Indians and other was Rajasthan Royals, one is out but other still in there. Go Warnie Go!!
RR should thrash and crash KXI and Yuvi's attitude.
And on other note, Sohail Tanvir for me is the bowler of the tournament. Right now he has the purple cap but no matter who takes the cap, he is bowling very well and miles better than Shreesanth. Those yorkers are a treat.

@Hooligan - Well said. Aussies are the ones who are doing very well right from the start.
