diabloo - your views on the wrong end of the barrel that the world's best batsman was pointing towards the RR ?

Haven't really seen you talk about that. Why ?

Not surprising considering Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) has the marketing rights of all the matches played in Mumbai.

the overdose was just too much. More crores in the kitty of players and organizers

Now we can expect the traffic to be back on roads from 3pm-11pm and movie stars demanding their rightful attention

Oh it's over? I was just convincing myself to see one match at least.
Does it start again next year?

Anybody can tell how hard it is to predict a T20 game. In yesterday's game too, it could have happened Tanvir edge the last ball to wicket keeper. In the semi-final match, DD dropped one too many catches. Their main bowler went for runs. Their another bowler was injured. While batting, Sehwag swung one hard. Any other day it would have sailed over the ropes. But on that day, the fielder covered good ground to catch it. Rest of the batsmen didn't find their touch.

Maybe the problem was with Wankede pitch - the pitch was good enough for first 15 overs only. RR batmen struggled in last 5 overs. DD batmen struggled thru' their 20 overs. In the game next day, KXI (who batted first) on the same pitch struggled to last their 20 overs. Only the low score ensured CSK get it.

Probably Wankede curator decided the fate of this IPL.

I not surprised that Dhoni has a World Cup in his kitty, while the illustrious is still searching for one for past 20 years.

I can add a whole page of ifs against CSK from their league games, RCB/MI/KKR/DD quite many of them, failing which they wouldn't be at the (semi)final at all

RR has been the most convincing throughout the tournament, and they earned their win, no two thoughts about that.

and what exactly was Dhoni's contribution with the bat in t20 wc? I don't see how everything the team does is attributed to Dhoni, CB series is another example.

I aint a supporter of the illustriuos one either

CSK - India Cements bought Dhoni, the most expensive player to captain the side.

DD & KXI - Insisted Sehwag & Yuvraj be icons and got them removed from auction and made their captains.

Deccan Chronicles understood the tangle they were getting into and got Laxman off the icon list. But they couldn't remove him from captaincy.

Mallya, SRK & Ambani wanted IPL mainly for surrogate advertising and didn't really bother about icons & captaincy.

As things stand, they don't any chance next year too, since the I-CONs want try their hands once more
Dude, how do you manage to come up with these things?

RR - Shane warne was paid almost 25% of Dhoni, and approximately one third of Sachin/yuvraj/dravid/ganguly. Kaif is the costliest player for RR followed by Yusuf pathan.

CSK - They wasted on one player that once the aussies left they were found wanting for batsmen/bowler. Total runs scored against money paid makes Dhoni the most useless player of IPL. Shaun Marsh 616 runs for 12laks, Dhoni not even 400(donno exactly) for 6 crores lol!

DD - Insisted Sehwag be the captain so that he could throw the match against Chennai and few other teams by mesing up the bowling at death. those mistakes had almost cost them their semis berth.

KXP - Less said the better, captaincy was more or less done by Mahela and Kumar, cry baby attitude, shouting at fielders like he will rip their pants off. jumping around along with sree(although he sobered down after the slap) as if they got their first pubic hair

Also Tom Moody, he is the mastermind behind it all, picking up talents like Shaun Marsh and Pomersbach(who were solely responsible for KXP wins in second half)

DC - Dude how can you blame Laxman for this team, he did not even play most of the games, it was captained by an aussie, the team had the best t20 players on paper.

Just because their teams won(not by their own efforts) its wrong to keep those icons in high regard and blame the other icons. If anything sourav/dravid have done better than icons like yuvraj.

supposing the other teams get through in the next year, I am sure you will have equally absurd things to say about the teams that dont get through

What was Dhoni thinking giving Balaji the last over?
He could have given him the 18th .. RR would have won with 2 overs to spare ;-)

But then, how can anyone match the richness of cricket in India. It will be very difficult for players to turn down IPL and the cash it offers.
T20 started in England .. they already have a full season of T20 but its no where as BIG as this was -- after all the money/fans/corporates is only in India .

I guess its time to close the IPL thread and shift focus to the Cricket thread. The action can continue there. What say you all!

One thing has changed after IPL - if any lazy selector claims that there is no talent in the country, then people will smack on his face

I wouldnt want to get into the talent and skill debate all over again. If you think T20 is a test of talent and skill then you are horribly wrong my friend.
