76 in the last ten overs with 10 wickets in hand - quite underwhelming after that brilliant start ...but we would have taken it at the beginning of the innings.

Sachin Tendulkar gave the muhurat clap for 'Awwal Number' - that apart, he hasn't done much wrong in the last 20 yrs!

The spirit is absolutely gone from the KKR side........thanks to some poor captaincy and coaching. It is all upto individuals like Shukla, Gayle and Ganguly now.

HeHe how convenient ...the 111 runs in the first 10 overs is due to poor captaincy by McCullum ...but the recovery is due to individual players.

127 for the first wicket after 12 overs

and then only 60 runs in the next 8 overs for 5 more wickets......good pull-back by KKR ::cheers::

PP 6 ovs yields 61... the next 4 - 50 runs

SRT and SJ ran amock... KKR looks lot worse than BRC  :-X

Just as BRC flattered to deceive... KKR's pulling back MI will not mean anything

For all the much vaunted support staff...strength-coach and what not, they couldn't restore the fitness of Anureet Singh...
You got to be kidding me.  This guy rolled his leg and may have twisted it.  There is only so much a medical staff can do in the event of an injury.   There are plenty of areas where you can focus on if you want to grill the KKR staff.  This right here based on what you are suggesting sounds downright silly.

The spirit is absolutely gone from the KKR side........thanks to some poor captaincy and coaching. It is all upto individuals like Shukla, Gayle and Ganguly now.

HeHe how convenient ...the 111 runs in the first 10 overs is due to poor captaincy by McCullum ...but the recovery is due to individual players.

This has nothing to do with captaincy.. with SRT in such sublime form and SJ being the brutal himself, no team stands a chance... definitely not this KKR team

What a brilliant batting display by Sachin and Sanath  ::cheers:: ::cheers:: ::cheers::

Cheeka had said T20 WC squad will be picked based on IPL performances. At this rate, the squad will have SG, SRT and RD  :D :D :D

Interestingly, KKR has a better record chasing high totals than low totals, if I am not mistaken :D

captain needs to motivate and inspire the team too.....which is missing here.
hope he comes up with some good batting....atleast.
it is not abt 2 champions being in sublime form.......it is all about allowing them to play freely.

hehe ...you sound so silly on this thread it is beyond funny

Hmmm, MI are playing a bowler short. Nayar/Sanath will have to fill in for 5th bowler with Malinga/Zaheer/Bhajji/Bravo the 4 bowlers. Not sure if this was a good idea - playing Tiwary ahead of Kulkarni
