&%*&%& Balaji

Recommended Posts

6 full tosses in one over .. that must have been a record :D And Gauti is a dickhead too in terms of captaincy .. he had 3 overs of spin left in the form of YP and he kept on persisting with Balaji when he was dishing out crap each and every over .. to be fair enough even Dada would not have taken such a terrible decision :giggle:

Combination of bad luck and poor strategy...two of the fours Franklin got lucky and he also nicked a couple for four...also he kept going for yorkers when he's clearly not capable of bowling them..should've made the batsman come on the front foot.

One more thing. Why do they carry 8 bowlers in their team. Balaji is hardly ever bowled. Why not to pick another batsman instead. 7 bowlers is more than enough. And their main strength is spin and they should use all their overs of spin unless the spinners are performing badly. Today they used only 9 overs of spin. And they also need to bowl Ryan Ten who is not that bad of a bowler. He is no way worse than Balaji.

Kallis should have bowled the last over as he had experienced bowling last over in a similar situation earlier in the tournament. That said, balaji wasn't a bad choice. There was a lot of luck involved in 3 of franklin's fours in the last over

People are writing off Balaji based on 1 bad over and that also in this tamasha. Reminds me of some fools who had similarly criticized Nehra after that last over against SA in the WC.
he bowls 3 overs and gone for 51 runs...

Balaji zara dheere chalo, bijli (MI) khadi yahan bijli khadi Line up mein, chingariyan, Sachin, Rayudu, Franklin, Pollard, aayi aafat badi Giri giri giri giri bijli giri :P People being too harsh on Balaji. He's had a good tournament, except for this game. Also, eventually KKR fans will appreciate his genius. Had you guys won, you would play RCB get trashed and then play CSK/MI and lose again. Now your players don't have to wait for that long to start their vacations. You only have to lose one game and phir holidays. :icflove:

what a pathetic display by franklin. all edges and only one shot in front of the wicket. if it had been a csk batsman, you would have seen four glorious boundaries by proper cricketing shots . this fluke win has no credibility with me. the worst 21 run over i have ever seen.

Now your players don't have to wait for that long to start their vacations. You only have to lose one game and phir holidays.
huh? doesn't the same apply for your team ? :haha: MI supporters seem to be living in wonderland fooled by this fluke win. i can't see MI fluking two days in a row.

No, that comes from the fan of a team that ruled this season of IPL staying at the top of the table 80% of the time. All the teams in the play off have played that team this season and guess what- they have lost. Someone says one-man, someone says four-men. But the fact remains that we kicked ass when the other top three teams played against us.

Balaji was pretty unlucky. Most of the fours Franklin hit were edges but he should have bowled better. Too many full tosses and especially the last one was a nice juicy waist high full toss that's headed nowhere other than the stands. But I hope he gets picked again for the next game.

:confused: All I am saying is that its unfair to be harsh on Balaji for 1 bad over. That too when some of the 4s that Franklin hit were lucky shots off the edges. I'm sure one bad over doesn't call for an expletive laden thread title to a player who has served your team well this season.

Oh, don't bother. There is a threshold minimum IQ required to understand those jokes. Yours will have to be multiplied by a factor of 5 and you'll still fall just short of that threshold. Right!

More than Franklin I would blame Balaji for that. Even a dunce would know that full tosses are the easiest to hit at the death and he served up 6 juicy full tosses. In case of a normal delivery the edges wont go for 4s easily but it can only happen in full tosses. Even a slight edge in a full toss would go for a 4. So, Franklin did not do much but Balaji served up the platter for Franklin to edge.

my point proven again. csk batsmen showed how its really done. yesterday's incredible hitting in the final 10 overs shud make any team shudder about facing us in Ko's. A sharp contrast to the 21 runs fluked out by franklin and co. oh Any impartial observer would agree that was an eye sore ! Mi and its four man crew deserve to exit today for such low quality cricket .i am fully supporting kkr today.

Obviously CSK's hitting were far better than MI. But its the outcome that counts more than anything else. Also the fact that CSK were given length balls and full tosses too doesn't prove me wrong. But this is what to expect from a quality player like Raina, how can one compare Raina with a Franklin ? Anyways, its not the time to reflect on those things, its time to focus on today's game :icflove:
