Dravid = Class act! That innings was as good as it can get. I was worried with the start we had, but then with the kind of show RCB put up later in the day, we can hope for better days in IPL
RCB looks a lot better this year!

Amazing bowling by RCB.
Did not expect them to limit the Rajasthan Royals to such a low score.

With both the 1st edition finalists loosing the 1st matches, i think this IPL is up for a big surprise.

Dunno if anyone noticed this, but Pinal Shah kept pretty well except for that one lapse. He moved well, collected the ball cleanly and was very smooth.

And Shane Warne was MAGIC today. Virat Kohli, with all his "I am a hero" attitude was absolutely flummoxed by the wily old fox. Sheer brilliance.

Dravid, Kumble and Tendulkarwere so much in form! That was nice to see. All 3 of them have been shunned form T20 in the past!!

Don't they say ' Form is temporary Class is permanent'
And they are the top class people

RR wont be able to create the last years magic. Thats what i read in this match. They dont have the firepower to deliver(even with warne with them)

Nice to see Mumbai indians and Daredevils winning their first matches(am supporting these two)
Lets see what happens today.

Looks like KKR is all glam & no show - its time their coach does something rather than day-dreaming some outlandish ideas.
Ganguly made just 1 of 12 with SR of 8.33 (maybe lowest in the tournament). After good performance from his colleges of Fab 4 (Sachin, Dravid & Laxman), I guess he is under pressure to perform, more so that he longer is the captain.

It seems Vijay Mallya is not very lucky for Bangalore team (today he is on the field, and the team has already lost the match). I expected a lot from the Bangy guys after the 1st match, but today they disappointed me .. Just now the 7th wicket is gone ...

Other than the Chennai - Mumbai match all the matches are one sided and not very fun to watch ... I know these are early days but but a bit more excitement is needed .......

Six wicket-takers for Chennai. That was the difference today.

SRKs deals with Nokia and Airtel are more personal in nature. IMO Since he is not a corporate its more difficult for him to get returns on his investment in terms of sponsorship. Other teams atleast have their own Ad budgets being used on their own teams.

Yup Excellent branding and team nomenclature.
Mallya must be so pissed with his Force India team change of not getting into points yesterday and now this. Beaten by the Super Kings.

This year again Super Kings will make it to the Finals.
This year they have a stronger team. 1.5Mil for the stocky Brit better pay off.

1.5M did definitely pay-off yesterday, Freddie was bowling at his best.
Sad to see Dravid running out of partners and not taking the orange cap back, from Hayden.

Edit: Why wasnt Dravid sent as 1-down yesterday!
