Rohit Sharma is injured and will miss the tri series and the Asia cup maybe.

Dhoni has a injured finger and he also twisted his ankle yesterday.

Gautam Gambhir is suspected to be having shoulder trouble and if confirmed, could take no part in the IPL.

3 players down with injury and a hectic season for the Indian team beckons.

I hope the selectors try the rotation policy in all sincerity. There are many new talented players that we have unearthed from this IPL tournament. We now know what our younger players are capable of and this would be the right time to blood them set by set. The seniors also need rest now.

What say ?

Well sad to know that Mumbai hasnt made it through but i feel the best 4 should make it to the semis and they have. So no offence to any particular team but all i got to say is do well from the start in the next season so you can bear the minor hiccups in the end pretty easily.

Bring Back Ganguly.. . other than that, I agree we have seen lots of new/young star rising.. they should be given chance and exposure

As you said, the best four have gone to the semis. So no regrets as far as I am concerned.

I am hoping for RR Vs Kings XI final, with RR coming up trumps on 1st June!

DD v/s RR is as good as a final. The two other teams are looking a bit jaded and lost - CSK barely able to chase targets thanks to Suresh Raina and sometimes Albie Morkel (their most-expensive-player-captain isnt exactly setting the charts on fire) and KXI are not really up there with either RR or DD.

Pity, because I liked both RR and DD. Only one will make it to the Finals.

No Andrew can scare Yuvraj Singh,whether its Symonds or Flintoff....if u dont believe me go and ask latter

Yuvi is not a cry baby like Sreesanth or fool like Harbhajan.

EDIT--My vote of-course is for KXIP but lately they have been erratic and it will be tough for them in the final.

For those who are saying that KXIP is winning only coz of aussies,what about this team's bowling attack.....infact KXIP may be the only team with all-Indian bowling attack and they have done well except in 3 matches out of 13 played so far.In these 3 matches they have conceded 175+ and lost all but all went very close.KXIP never lost any match with bi9g margin like all other inclu RR,DD and CSK did.

In some matches J.Hopes has bowled few overs but he has been Hopeless in all he played.

BRC has a decent start. 34/0 in 5 overs. I hope they make it 3 in a row (i have nothing against MI, just admire Dravid).

Edit: they lost Boucher as I was typing.

Make that 84/7. I really pity poor Dravid.

He will do himself and his fans a big favor by dropping out of IPL next year.

Dravid has planned (or expecting) a low-scoring thriller
