from cricket info: Teams? Coming up soon. If Misbah-ul-Haq doesn't get a game for Bangalore today, something's got to be seriously wrong somewhere.

LOL haha
 
Bangalore 1 down already

13 for 1. Rudra takes the wicket.
 
Good to see Misbah batting

32/1 off 4
 
Bangalore really need to accelerate if they want any chance of winning

rameez says afridi is clever with shots:|


lol I heard that too...I think he said something like a taste of Afridi's own medicine.

This is boring so far....im more hooked to the snooker.
 
Huge roar for Misbah walking in... he's got the entire crowd chanting his name.

Afridi vs Misbah, again i'm not sure which side to support.
 
wow the crowd is chanting Misbah Misbah...everyone seems to remember him!!
 
lol Dravid looks like such a rookie when he's playing aggressive shots. Starts with a 4 though...

a true champion is appriciated anywhere. :19:

p.s. i want him out as soon as possible:42:
 
two of my favorate batsman at the crease and i am supporting deccan chargers. :20:
 
that was awful decision as it was looking to miss the leg stump by miles...
 
haha billy doctrove why is this guy still an umpire. blind as a bat still
 
nahhhhh Afridi what did u do....Im really happy that he got a wicket but y the wicket of Misbah
arghhhh that's y i hate when Pakistani players r playing against each other
 
I'm supporting DC too, and they are well in front right now.
 
a hard hitter in ODIs like Boucher is struggling out there. such a pathetic state of Bangalore
 
Fantastic spell from the one-armed anaemic meat-skinner - 4 overs 1/23
 
Another brilliant spell from Afridi.

Dravid dropped by styris! He looks disappointed but i don't know if its such a bad thing.
 
Dravid is just too slooowwwwwwwww
 
Deccans have this in the bag
 
stryis does a great job of dropping dravid:| he is a smart operator:D
 
consecutive 4s from Parveen to finish the 19th over!

143/6
 
That was messy, unknown indian tackling styris like its baseball.
 
19.1 Styris to Dravid, no run, Dravid mistimes a slog and places it wide of Styris, he misfields as he collides with Praveen and they set off for a run, Dravid then turns down the run as it wasn;t fair on the fielding side

sporting stuff from Dravid

Edit: Parveen run out for 8

Edit again! Dravid hits another 6 straight after!:O

dravid hits a 6 *faints*

Dravid's a smart operator! :|
:p

Edit: Dravid out on the last ball
19.6 Styris to Dravid, OUT
R Dravid c Yadav b Styris 26 (19b 1x4 2x6) SR: 136.84
 
Doctroves decision to give Misbah out was a shocker.

Missing leg stump and going over the top.

I suppose Doctrove is there for the comedy value.

still Rudi holds the orange cap for the 'highest wrong decision awarder' :)) :))
 
Player back out onto the field, Styne starts of with a wide (142kpm!)
 
Gilly really struggling to get Styne away, got a feeling he will be on his way back soon...
 
Gibbs OUT

Pls lets see the Beast!
 
First ball wicket! Gibbs fails again

5.1 Kumar to Gibbs, OUT, and the bowling change works! Praveen pitches it short of a length outside off, Gibbs stays at the crease to flat bat it but the ball stops on him, he gets a thick top edge and Kumble at mid-off takes the sitter
HH Gibbs c Kumble b Kumar 5 (7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 71.42
 
Rohit Sharma is no Beast. He is a knight
 
Rameez Raja reason to why tower lights are affecting players: "light is ok to play, but batsmen get used to the light towers" around those lines lol!

LOL
Still though, imagine if it was Zaheer Abbas on commentary!
'I must say, who turned off the lights?!' :))
 
Rohit to take them through :19: !
 
Deccan will lose this match. they left it too late. Now if quick wickets fall during acceleration then they will b stuck in no mans land.
 
I really hope someone gets out soon, or the Deccans won't win it. Lax will come under pressure and screw it up.

But six.
 
nO need for the beast...Rohit is the man of the moment!! This guy just keeps on impressing.he has become the second highest run scorer in the tournament.
 
four...Rohit makes batting look sooo damn easy!! just 3 runs away from becoming the leading run-scorer in the tournament.
 
Steyn has bowled really well today and really cranked up the pace too. With bit more luck he could have picked up a wicket or two.
