Kolkata sitting pretty at the top of the table with 2 wins out of 2, however Chennai have a 100% record too. So something has to give.

Hafeez and Salman Butt of course both hoping to play for Kolkata today.

You forgot Umar Gul Saj.
he's not been included in the lineup for Kolkata.

Ganguly and McCullum opening.

8 for 0 after the 1st over from big Jake Oram
 
McCullum already blasting the ball around.

24 for 0 from 2 overs.
 
big wicket for Oram and the Chennai team. McCullum gone caught at cover.
 
Ponting gone first ball. Lazy drive caught at cover.

Jake on a hattrick.
 
Trust the cricket to interrupt th real fun on the forum..

Whose the guy in your avatar, seems very distraught the poor chap.
 
3rd wicket down for Kolkata.

61 for 3 from 6 overs. No sign of Kolkata owner SRK in the crowd.

36 balls gone and Gabguly has only faced 7 of them.

Murali to bowl now.
 
something wrong with the IPL .. best T20 fast bowler can't find his way into the final 11 :12: :12:
 
5 dot balls from Murali to Ganguly - wow !

which one Kash ?
 
4th wicket gone now for Kolkata. Hussey of the David variety.

Caught at point.

Hafeez is now.
 
5 down Kolkata.

Ganguly hits one straight up in the air. 12 from 19 balls.

70 for 5.
 
Ponting :|

to think I included him in my fantasy team, just before the game!
 
Hafeez is such a dork, finds the classiest ways to place the ball in the fielders' hands. He's very talented but his problem is he's too full of himself.
 
Hafeez gone for 16

Tried to play a paddle sweep and caught at short fine leg.
 
stop it guys....Hafeez played a great knock to save KKR...

i really hope this KKR team is a flop....can't stand the cheap stuff from their owner...
 
Ganguly looking pensive - sat picking his nose.

119 for 6 from 17 overs.

I get all the poking fun at shahrukh. But seriusly whats so wrong with dancing in a 20-20 match? All our crowds are filled with people doing that, whats the big deal if a celebrity does it?
 
sparhawk,

dancing has nothing to do with him being cheap...just listen to him when he talks...he seems to making fun of everyone from Aamir khan to Ab to Shahid Afridi to Shobby....he needs to grow up man and stop being a moron 24/7......he can dance all he wants....there is nothing wrong with that......
 
very unsportman-like behavior by Dhoni's team....I think this deserves a thread of its own.

I'll start it. :D
 
That was superb move from Dhoni's team. Just brilliant. A huge mistake on the part of Shukla and Sharma.
 
Steady start from Chennai.

12 for 0 chasing 148 to win. Hayden trying to dominate.

If Kolkota lose today then will delhi move to first place in rankings?
the winner of this match will go top of the table.
 
Agarkar getting his usual warm welcome from the batsmen - 2 boundaries.

45 for 0 and well on course for victory.
 
isn't SRK in the stadium today? cameras havent focused on him dancing at all

Maybe he's scared Ganguly will slap him...
:13:

66 after 8 overs btw, highest opening partnership so far in IPL

kolkota is already on top followed by delhi, so I doubt chennai can beat delhi RR
Delhi have 4 points, if Chennai wins they will have 6 points.

Agarkar gets rid of Parthiv Patel.
 
Its all looking pretty comfortable out there for Chennai.

67 needed from 9 overs with 9 wickets in hand.

Seems like not even Juhi Chawla's presence can inspire David Hasselhoff's oops I mean SRK's Knight Riders.

awright, so we'll have to wait till tomorrow to see delhi top the table.. :)
 
Both these batsman are in my fantasy team; they better remain not out

Hayden is my captain :D
 
Hayden plays a great knock again after a uncertain start, with Dhoni finishing things off, Chennai win by 9 wickets!
