Vettori can be hit ...BRC did that quite well. But, yeah, you would rather play him out safely if you had a choice.

RR falling apart.  Good ball by Mishra and a smart stumping to get Warne.

Warnie wants to take the score closer to target before inviting Mascara and YP to throw their bats. Huh.. I selected  AD Mascarenhas as trump, thinking he may get to bat more (considering RR line up).
anyway not a bad strategy by Warnie.

these 2 should get it down to 50-60 in 4-5 overs by playing sensibly.

I said that earlier ...if he gets back to his previous year's form and Watson gets back in the side, they suddenly start looking quite good.

Bad captaincy by Veeru to bring in Vettori again and then Mishra - could have brought back one of the pacers instead as YP is hell bent on dismissing the spinners out of the park !!!

Sangawan's miss of YP will prove costly.

But then that man YP again.  No getting around it.   He will make you pay!!!!!

what a stupid game .... its like the India of old .... under ganguly and azhar we would find ways of losing from a winning position. This is exactly like that.

missing that direct hit by Dilshan from 5 feet away was a key. Then sangwan drops that catch

Funny, I saw the line "16 needed from 14 balls".. and the mendis over flashed in front of my eyes.. he needs only 4 balls.

Sure enough they won with 9 balls to spare ;D

Yes he is the guy for this format.   He does have a way to get to you.  It is a testimony to Warne to give him the chances all through last year and it paid great dividends last year and continuing this year.

It is Yusuf's team !!!!

both of RR's games have been single handedly won by YP.

they just have to hang on until Watson comes back. They also have to try to find another hitter

DD took the game a bit too easy. They should have scored 175+ on this track

They should play PC and GM in the next match. PC is going back after next game

Sehwag ... talks as if he has brains. The idiot has nothing. He should be no where close to captaincy. Let him play as a sidey batsman .... whatever he gives should be a bonus!

Shoo ..this captain won four games in a row!!! How much more evidence do you want? After all, one is bound to go by results.

Wouldn't have been possible without Smith's innings. It took them within striking distance. YP is more likely to do it from up close than from the 5th over on.
