Great reflexes by Martin Guptil there. Fantastic catch.
 
ohhh,,,lets hope rahane gets a call in place of woefully out of form gambhir,,,,,even chand will do not worse dan him
 
lets hope mcullum plays a blinder,,,,btw two muvh needed boundaries from bisla
 
So happy to see SunnyG being silenced by Auckland Bowlers n fielders. He was keeping on yapping about Gambhir's batting (misses) with so many excuses. But Gambhir once again flopped big time and made SunnyG's comments look stupid (kept him silent, pommie was having the ball though).
 
Andre Adams should love these conditions. Although hes not really a T20 guy.
 
Looking at the way that Bisla has played so far, proves how hack of a batsmen he is and more than that how pathetic our (CSK) bowling was against him in this year's IPL final. Making this fellow a superstar overnight :facepalm:
 
Not a great start for KKR. :danish Guess another defeat for IPL team. :))
 
Bisla gone, decent knock from him. KKR in better position now.
 
Sakib has to come out to face a hat trick ball after looking like he was dying from the cold in the dugout.
 
Azhar does the trick! Shame he didn't play for us in the T20 World cup over Afridi/Razzaq...
 
Not a good knock by the greatest all rounder in the history of the universe. :shakib

I have mentioned this during qualifiers and I repeat Auckland Aces are the dark horses of this tournament. They have got perfect squad for the SA conditions.

Azhar Mahmood could possibly end up with Man of the Tournament (either with Ball or Bat)
 
the players dont seem to have much enthusiasm in them, as if they are playing some exhibition match or sort...oh wait, this tournament afterall is an exhitibtion match where the top performers get lookedt at for an IPL contract
 
SunnyG's voice has lost all the enthu and confidence after seeing yet another poor performance from some of his favt players. Very low key commentary from him so far, on the other hand Doully is all charged up.
 
Auckland Aces looks the team to beat in this tournament... very well balanced and perfect for the conditions...
 
Man, why does he have to be so hard on players ? I am talking about Doull :facepalm:
 
Azhar Mehmood showing he is a Pakistani after all... Horrible fielding hahah
 
KKR appears to be at least 20 runs short of par score on this pitch.

138 is the target

Is this your excuse for your hero's horrible batting today? Some of the unknown Indian batsmen played better than your hero on these SA wickets.
 
Very poor team selection by KKR.picking Shakib?He iandead goat on these pitches.Should have picked.Tendo instead.Also i dont know why they didnt choose.to.bring Pattinson.Very poor team selection.They are perhaps the weakest IPL team in these condition.I still cant believe that they chose shakib.:banghead:
 
What happened to Gautam Ghambir?? He doesnt even look like the same player from a year ago??

well from what ive seen he didnt seem in great touch but he tried to keep his wicket thats why he scored so few. and when he tried to go for the runs he got out
 
If Aces chase this target within 16 overs then KKR is more likely to miss out chance for Semis ('cos they already had one very big loss against Delhi the otherday)
 
What a form Azhar Mahmood is in! Thanks to these leagues he is able to play and show his skill!
 
Signs are Very Ominous for KKR.

They need a Hat-trick frm Narine to have any chance of winning this game
 
Narine Strikes but needs another 2 quick wickets
