RR on 4th position.. but that may last only few hours..

If CSK beat DD with good margin.. they may go to 4th position

At the end of the day DC did not put enough runs on the board to allow for any margins in error.  141 is not a good score.  Period.  They lost because of that despite the mishaps on the field.  Of all things Rao's caught and bowled chance was the only thing that will count IMO.  Because Warne hit him for a six and a four after that to ease the pressure.  In the end the right result.

They still are in my books the best team on display but dont know what two back to back defeats and their best bowler going away is going to do to them.

DC should believe in superstitions. Every time they drop Laxman, they lose...

Yes losing Edwards will be huge.  It all depends on how Vaas a proven and a well rested veteran does on these responsive SA pitches to go along with RP and Ojha.

Vaas should do well.. i also think Shoaib should do well.. they should bowl him early in the first 6. Gilly should have got his overs done before 10th over.. he could have held back the line and bowled.

great last over ( well..at least 4 balls) by Edwards. It is really going to be tough for charges once he leaves for England. Symonds comes back but cannot match Edwards as bowler. I believe it is going to be tougher for them to reach Semi Final and not as easy as it looks!

Rohit Sharma missed that four badly. Pure overconfidence trying to pick and throw unnecessarily!

Seriously that was a school boy mistake and the dude deserves a real hard kick up his back side for such clumsiness. Unfortunately yet another example of lack of cricketing sense....

Symonds addition will be huge.  He will only be playing the last 6 games the way the games are scheduled.

they need to win just 4 out of 8.. it will take a monumental collapse for them to miss Semis.

One thing is sure, there are no easy games in IPL now.. they have one game left against KKR on May 16.. before that the games are all tough.. CSK, MI, KXIP, DD, RR.

Especially when you consider Symonds coming back it would be considered as such if they do not make it from here.

Gilly, Gibbs, Symmo and Rohit lineup is as formidable as there is in this entire IPL and Vaas. RP and Ojha is a decent line up with Smith and Shoaib backing them.

They will use VVS as needed.  Gilly said that yesterday.  That wanted to give Suman a chance given the way he was playing in the nets and given VVS and Suman only bat the swap is between the two.  So along the way VVS may still make an appearance.

What a match!!! Boy, is the IPL heating up or what!!!

I think unless the conditions are way too extreme one should always chase against this RR team. That way they'll have to take a decision on how much to set - not easy for them.

But this result really blows it all wide open!!! Am I glad MI have a superior NRR - it may come down to that in the end.

Edwards should have bowled earlier - maybe at YP - and even if not, definitely the 19th. Had he bowled the way he bowled the 20th, it would have been tough in the 20th

not the first time Guiltychrist has done that

amazing they will win after being 3/3.. DC has a bowling problem

they are losing fidel but getting kulashaker. vaas, styris and harmeet are also there. dwayne smith can bowl more. also some guy ryan harris is also there.

btw i thought royals' fielding was worse than DC's today. OMG munaf needs a b***h slap.



carseldine may be a good find. why werent we playing these guys earlier!!

frankly i thought shane harwood was in uae with aus team, but clearly not. this guy can bowl a mean yorker.

royals may play 4 aussies in the lineup later in the tournament :D
carseldine, watson, warne and harwood!!

im sorry but graeme smith is not helping the cause. i think moment watson comes in, he has to replace him (at this rate)

dimitri is also there in the squad - how will he play. never mind morne morkel!!!

tyron henderson - worst buy of 2009 (and 2008).

I watched that game.  Nothing wrong with that appeal.  He was behind the stumps and went up in appeal in unison the way it struck the pad and no way to know if it was bat first or pad first.  That is why they appeal.  Is'nt it. 

Now calling Gilly as Guiltychrist and all is fine, I can call players like Tendulkar as a Taxevader or Ganguly as a womaniser for his alleged affair with Nagma and who is to say he did not many such incidents or Warne the biggest adultrer of all time for literally living a porn artists life all in the name of appealing which I have seen them do as well in the full action of a match.

Yeah. But it is a high risk option - just that they don't have too many options. It would be interesting to see how RR would go if they have to set a target.

Well, While setting the target, YP's full potential has to be used.  He must come between 7-12 stage.

Nice.  Still did not see you on the threads when RR got their rare ends handed over to them.  Hmm...Where are they currently in the standings.  May be we will see if their luck finally runs out for them led by an adultrer.

Carseldine underlines need for consistency
4 May 2009, 8:42 pm



Australian allrounder Lee Carseldine has admitted that Rajasthan Royals haven't played good cricket so far but remains hopeful that the win against Deccan Chargers in their last game will prove to be the turning point for them.

The 33-year-old reckons that tomorrow's game will be a battle between the in-form Kings XI Punjab bowlers and Rajasthan's batsmen. "We know our batting has to get bit more consistent but we are well in our way in doing that," Carseldine said. "Punjab have been bowling well and it's going to be an interesting challenge."

Rajasthan have won only three games from seven matches and are seventh in the points table but Carseldine preferred to look ahead. "We are not playing our best cricket but we are still in tournament. If we can win the next game, we would be two in a row and it's the consistency we are looking at. You have to be strong and calm in the present situation. Every team is close to each other. There is going to be lots of pressure on guys batting first up or bowling up front. It's going to be exciting."

Carseldine has only played one game so far and hit a breezy 39 to help Rajasthan win a tense chase against Deccan. He is considered as a Twenty20 specialist and has been spoken of highly by Rajasthan's captain-coach Shane Warne.

"It's not a easy game. It can get really away from you very quickly," said Carseldine. "It can get suffocating,  be it batting or bowling or fielding under pressure. It's a game you really have to keep it very simple; there are lots of off-field restrictions and it's short and compact."

Carseldine said the best part of the team was the spirit that Warne had helped build. "This is the first time I have experienced his captaincy. He is definitely all about the team. When you get into tight situations stronger team spirit shines through and it showed other night  [against Deccan Chargers]."

The four foreign Rajasthan players who are likely to play tomorrow are Warne, Carseldine, Graeme Smith and Dimitri Mascarenhas. Tyron Henderson is the one who has missed out and is desperate to get a chance.

"It would have been nice if you get five foreign players in the team but I have heard the other argument that it's an Indian tournament," said Henderson. "Anyways, it's not a decision for us. We just have to play according to the rules. It's a bit disappointing not to have played, but with the situation with four overseas players and with Shane Warne and Smith there, six guys are playing for two spots."

However, Henderson has been given a specific role by Warne. Henderson has been asked to help the team with his local knowledge. "I give advice and inputs on the local conditions. Graeme Smith is there, but considering the amount of international cricket, even he doesn't get to play much of domestic cricket. That's my role now."
