I think RR have gone a bit overconfident + lack of firepower this time!

Rajasthan Royals are bowling well. Knight Riders are in trouble after Gayle gave them a good start.
Go RR!

+1! they really have turned the game! Achieved a decent score of 150 and some pretty good bowling
They just might win this one!

I think the real surprise team so far, is Deccan, who have won all their matches so far.

cheers

cheers

What a rocking match !! Full credit to Shane Warne for handling his bowlers superbly when bowling. And Yusuf - what a hitter !!! Simply tore Mendis apart !

btw - why didn't KKR give Gayle the super over - will remain one of the most strange decision the coach and captain took. Gayle was their best bowler.

I think KX1 Punjab - have been hit the most by the absence of foreign players. Irfan Pathan is going down the Mohd Kaif way - fast !! With no Shaun Marsh and James Hopes, Yuvi looks lost.

Shane Warne did not bowl the super over 'coz he knew that the dew would make the ball slippery. Probably he had the advantage of being the fielding captain at that time.

He saved the match, but I think Kamran is no great shakes as a bowler. I don't think he has control over direction or length And I think his action is also suspect.

+ 1. Action looked suspect specially the last ball of the super over.

If Malinga is fine Kamran is super fine
But i liked the temparament of this guy. 18 years old with no first class experience playing with the worlds best players can be nerve wrecking.
He is blessed to have Warne as captain.
I had seen Warne captain his county side on numerous occasions. He turns lost matches into wins literally.
Had a bet running with my dad Warne will get RR a win and voila he did it!

KKR coach John needs som brain lessons.
With dew and ball not spinning much and Pathan in front Mendis was a sitting duck, Ishant was the best bet and Shahrukh must have torn all his hair now.
Special mention for Dada,again class is a class and he must be damn upset he couldnt take them home in last over!
RR deserved to win and Yusuf pathan- You rock

Yousuf Pathan is not human...LOL.

Good he is on our side. Some of the shots he played for a particular ball are well.. unbelievable.

Malinga is a slinger. This one has a problem with the elbow bending, at least to my naked eye.

Somehow, does not look like a long term prospect to me.

This guy has to be dropped from all forms of cricket for his attitude. Warney initially told him to bowl bouncers at SG, then he repeatedly made sign language to him to do it, still the guy was stubborn in refusing him.

I feel Warney should drop him for the next match.

I guess warne gave this new guy the last over and super over as he looked like one of those guys who can never ball a straight delivery:-)

All the balls were towards the wide length LOL.

Well KKR captain. Any kiddo in India will say giving Mendis the over against Pathan is simply a bad idea. Why dont you guys use a tiny part of the numbskull.

Btw two observation
1) The RR ballers action has to be checked
2) Ishanth Sharma didnt seem to complete the run which drew the match. His bat didnt seem to make contact.

No idea how many observed it but thats what i felt
