I thought he got out at the right time , allowing Yusuf Pathan to do the final honours.

Followed by Watson ... :-( , hope they can make it 210+ as a total below that could be tough to defend .. its a small ground and Sehwags snicks will also go for a 6 !! Purple cap needs to rip through the top order of the DD ...

It's a semi-final, pressure situation. Even a score of 190 odd won't be easy; and if they make it 200+ it'll be "sone pe suhaga".

SEHWAG ... do you really think he gets pressurised by a semi final , for him there is nothing known as pressure . he hits , if its his day he will rip apart anything .

Last over on .. Pathan vs Pathan , hope Gujju pathan wins .

Edit -- DAMN , they not getting to 200 now !

3 ***** - 10 runs - will Pathan get the 200 for the RR?

EDIT - Gone. But still 190+ is a very very nice target. And if Sehwag or Gambhir goes early it will get interesting.

Bingo, 192 will make for a very interesting match. Delhi's batting has been almost entirely dependant on Sehwag/Gambhi/Dhawan. If Tanveer can get 2 of these our early, RR will be in a very good position.

yeah .. Tanvir needs to get the initial breaks else I dont see DD being stopped ! Also I wonder why Warne left out Akmal , he could have added to their batting power .

I was also surprised with Warne going with Kaif over Neeraj Patel !

Neeraj has performed whenver he has been called for while Kaif hasn't done anything worthy to note.

Its a good score by RR.
Tanvir and Warne's 8 overs will be the difference between two teams IMO.

BTW it was good persistent onslaught by RR and whoever came to bat kept on scoring.They never looked to consolidate 1st and then score in the last overs as most of other teams had done.

In the end it could be the nerves which may decide final outcome.Anyhow it will be a cracking match.

Even sending Tanvir at no.3 was a wrong decision.

Sehwag out !! DD 10/1 in 1.2 . Gambhir has to bat most of the innings if DD has to pull this one off !
