There's some bad news to report: it's been raining in Chennai and the toss, which was scheduled for 7.30 pm, hasn't happened as yet. The good news, though, is that the rain has stopped for the moment.


fulll squads as follows:

Chennai Super Kings squad
MS Dhoni, VV Kadbe, P Amarnath, S Anirudha, R Ashwin, S Badrinath, L Balaji, N Einstein, SP Fleming, M Gony, ML Hayden, MEK Hussey, SB Jakati, Joginder Sharma, CK Kapugedera, AB Karthik, SS Kumar, JA Morkel, A Mukund, M Muralitharan, M Ntini, JDP Oram, PA Patel, SK Raina, S Vidyut


Bangalore Royal Challengers squad

R Dravid, Abdur Razzak, NC Aiyappa, B Akhil, KP Appanna, J Arunkumar, MV Boucher, S Chanderpaul, B Chipli, SP Goswami, W Jaffer, SB Joshi, JH Kallis, Z Khan, V Kohli, P Kumar, A Kumble, Misbah-ul-Haq, AA Noffke, DT Patil, DW Steyn, LRPL Taylor, R Vinay Kumar, CL White

Bangalore are already out of contention for the semi-finals, having lost nine out of 11 games. They're playing for pride, or as Siddarth Ravindran said in his preview, to avoid the wooden spoon. Chennai, on the other hand, are third in the league and a win today will almost certainly secure a spot in the final four
 
After Mumbai's loss today, if Chennai and Delhi keep losing..... there may be still an outside chance for Kolkata to sneek in but they'll have to beat Delhi and Punjab - both the top teams in the league.

I meant to say - Delhi and Punjab.

Current table:
Code:
[B]Team  	    Mat  Won  Lost   	Pts[/B]
Rajasthan   11 	 9     2    	18
Punjab 	    11 	 8     3    	16
Chennai     11 	 7     4 	14
Mumbai 	    11 	 6     5 	12
Delhi 	    12 	 6     6 	12
Kolkata     12 	 5     7	10 
Deccan 	    11   2     9 	 4
Bangalore   11 	 2     9 	 4


These are the remaining matches;
Code:
46th : [COLOR=Blue]Bangalore[/COLOR] @ Chennai     - May 21
47th : [COLOR=Blue]Kolkata[/COLOR]   @ Delhi       - May 22
48th : [COLOR=Blue]Deccan[/COLOR]    @ Punjab      - May 23
49th : [COLOR=Blue]Rajasthan [/COLOR]@ Chennai     - May 24
50th : Mumbai    @ Delhi       - May 24     (does not matter)
51st : Bangalore @ Deccan      - May 25  (does not matter)
52nd : Punjab    @ [COLOR=Blue]Kolkata[/COLOR]     - May 25
53rd : Mumbai    @ [COLOR=Blue]Rajasthan[/COLOR]   - May 26
54th : Chennai   @[COLOR=Blue] Deccan  [/COLOR]    - May 27
55th : Mumbai    @ [COLOR=Blue]Bangalore [/COLOR]  - May 28
56th : [COLOR=Blue]Rajasthan [/COLOR]@ Punjab      - May 28

If the teams in blue win.....
and the lets say Mumbai beats Dehli on May 24th;
the table will look like this. You'll have 3 teams at 14 points.
2 of them will qualify for semis on NRR. Kolkate will be one of them.

Code:
Team  	    Mat  Won  Lost   	Pts
Rajasthan   14 	 12    2    	24
Punjab 	    14 	 8     6    	16
Kolkata     14 	 7     7	14
Chennai     14 	 7     7 	14
Mumbai 	    14 	 7     7 	14

Delhi 	    14 	 6     8 	12 
Deccan 	    14   5      9 	10
Bangalore   14 	 4     10 	 8

But for all this to happen, Banglore and Deccan will have to win vs major teams and Kolkata have to beat Delhi and Punjab.

What are the chance of that???? So basically, Kolkata has statistical chance but not realistic chance. SA fans can start to mourn! :p

In all honesty, I wanted Kolkata to advance since it has FOUR Pak players! :(

GOne-Swaaaaaaami - another huge appeal for caught behind and Goswami's walked! The umpire shook his head and turned the appeal down but the batsmen decided to go. Gony pitched short of a length and angled the ball across the left-hander's off stump, Goswami tried to drive on the up but only managed an edge through to Parthiv

Dravid in !!!

23/2 after 6 overs
 
Dravid and Kohli both playing the sheet anchor roles and look to be planning to bat till stumps.
 
drama - brilliantly caught but Morkel's hurt himself, Kohli pulls the ball high in the air towards deep midwicket, Morkel initially mis-judges the catch and comes forward before he begins to back-pedal to try and get into position, he jumps backwards to take the catch and he's in mid-air as he takes it, he falls awkwardly on one knee and then hits his head on the ground as he falls backwards, he's managed to stay within the boundary by a foot so it's a fantastic effort

Morkel's gone off the field for the moment. OH WELL :))
 
9.3 Balaji to Dravid, no run, Dravid moves forward and steers the ball towards short third man

The Beast Dravid is at it again! :16:

There's no escaping these beastly defensive nudges and carefully taken singles. Chennai is doomed!!
 
caught, superbly by Parthiv! The short of a length delivery angles into Misbah from over the wicket, cramping him for room, Misbah tries to steer the ball towards third man but gets a thick outside edge that flies into the gap between the keeper and first slip, Parthiv dives full length to his right and grabs the catch with one hand

dam fool

Such ordinary players put pressure on their partners...if Misbah had been batting with a better batsman, he wouldn't have been dismissed so early
 
Misbha tastes balaji special for the first time :p . Good bowler lost his way.

Who are you calling a fool? Misbah? You can hardly blame him when batting like Dravid. Dravid's Test batting puts pressure on his partners
 
dravid messed up big time again

how can u elect to bat when u have steyn in ur bowling and its a wet pitch

Batting practice. Anyway they don't care about result of the match.

The Beast has the best Test ave. so stop complaining all the time!!

Dont worry Bangalore the BEAST is at rescue! DRAWid will successfully DRAW this T20, something only he can do. :14: :16:
 
Ramiz's sarcasm is touching new high. About Dravid "His footwork is special in this game"
 
I fear if they can cross 100.

For all bangalore haters:

At least we will win the best sportsmanship team award. What will you win if you can't be the champ? Chump trophy?

this dravid guy bats just like me
 
Silly Boucher gone trying to undo all of his Beastliness's hardwork by hitting boundaries and taking chances. :46:

Runrate back to 5. Draw it is! :27:

Take that!
15.4 Balaji to Dravid, FOUR, too short and Dravid pulls the ball powerfully off the front foot through midwicket for four more, he's getting a move on once again
15.3 Balaji to Dravid, FOUR, that's the first six! Or is it? Dravid gets down on one knee and frees his arms to slice a full ball from outside off stump towards deep backward point, the ball bounces just inside the boundary



Batsman like ME(and Dravid) can hit once in a while!
 
PP played unselfishly and didn't go for his 50. :( I thought he needed to.

100 up :125: Big congrats sign on the screen :135:
100-6 after 17.3 overs
cricinfo reports this is the third slowest 100 in this tournament. I wonder which team scored the other two. :)

The BEAST likes it S...........L....................O.............................W.

He likes to torture the bowlers slowly and painfully.....by boring them to death. Thats why he's got his closest species Kallis, Jaffer and Chanders to back him up. :16:
 
More misery for Mallya's Bangalore Royal Chumps. :))
 
steyn getting thrashed

a four then 4 wides and then a no ball four

so far 25 runs from 1.4 ovs
 
Can anyone tell me about this Gony fella? Is he pacy? Bounce and movement? Been seeing his name a lot in the IPL games.

pacy guy
consistently puts up 140 Ks
well built so will generate more speed
smart fella
and since dhoni is the wickie at the end, we mite see gony soon in the 50 ovs game :27: :27:

Stats are pretty ordinary though

Don't get me wrong, looks an alright bowler, but you gotta take wickets at the end of the day

E.g. Tanvir averaging about 10 for the tournament

Gony's stats aren't special

Not consistently 140k, more like 135k.
He has good bounce but not much movement in the air.

when did i mention his stats?
sure u gotta take wkts
but from what i have seen he looks promising
is it so hard to understand?
 
great over from kumble

2 wkts
chennai 87-4
no dhoni no badrinath left

can banglore somehow win this Chennai Super Kings need 40 runs in 36 balls
 
5th one gone

steyn got the breakthrough

him and kallis still have a over left
can the safricans win it for banglore chumps?
 
6 gone now, Styne gets another 1!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Kallis does something right for once!
 
sorry kallis has finished his quota

steyn into bowl

i guess praveen kumar will bowl the final over
 
LOL Chennai making a hash of the chase.
 
Well done Mizbi. I checked the cricinfo commentary and he surely had a huge area of ground covered. Batsman avoided the region as I see no mention of His name in it
 
12.6 Vinay Kumar to Fleming, 1 no ball, bowled him! Fleming backs away towards leg stump and tries to hit a full ball across the line towards the leg side, he misses and Vinaykumar hits the leg stump which gets uprooted and proceeds to smack Boucher on the knee just above the pad, Fleming's out but Boucher's down on the ground in some pain, whoops, Fleming's got a very lucky break, the umpire spotted that there were only three men in the circle and called a no-ball, Fleming stays and it's all very dramatic, did I mention that Fleming's bat flew out of his hand after the shot?
this might be the most annoying and disgusting scenario for a bowler. he bowls a perfect delivery and shattered the stumps but due to captain's or some fielder's stupidity he denied the wicket!!
 
Beast does it. A win is the next best thing after a Draw. Raina was distracted by the BEAST's fangs who was fielding at Silly mid off so Raina just took a single to get over the nonstriker end.
 
wow!! My team finally showed that patience will pay off one day. We sit at six points. :)
 
had other so called T20 specialists supported dravid we wud have won a few more games .... well done dravid & Kumble ..well done bangalore ...we will surely do better next season !
