  1. One man batting team today. AB playing on a different pitch. Thing is if he gets out even now, there's no guarantee other batsmen would see RCB through.
  2. Kohli has to be one of the worst judger of the singles ever.
  3. Great batting by Pant. But after such a good start, RCB let down again by bowlers and captain. 174 ... probably 15 too many.
  4. Around 120 runs in the last 10 overs on a pitch which seems a bit difficult to bat on. Chahal, arguably the best bowler on display today, doesn't complete his quota. Doesn't reflect well on Virat the captain.
  5. Game running away from RCB. Need a wicket or two.
  6. RCB needs a wicket .. preferably that of Pant.
  7. RCB is looking a little better with that one change and the batting order. Sarfaraz out, Manan Vohra in and opening. M Vohra + Q DeKock * V Kohli AB DeVilliers C Anderson M Singh W Sundar C Woakes U Yadav S Ahmed Y Chahal Not sure about Anderson ahead of Grandhomme. Anderson hasn't played in the last 6 months and Grandhomme has been in pretty good form in all formats for NZ. Still feel it may be better if W Sundar could open and lengthen the batting order with Mandeep at #7, especially while chasing. Prefer ABDV at #5 and take the responsibility of finishing the innings.
  8. Both teams can't afford a loss at this point. Unfortunately, one team will most likely go down the rabbit hole after this game. I wish today these teams played the ones in the top 4 in the table, and won their games. Would make the tournament more closer and interesting to watch. It's awful if a couple of teams lose most of their first 5-6 games and pretty much out of it so early in the tournament.
  9. IPL thread allocation

    @rkt.india Done. Please sticky it.
  10. vs Both teams at the bottom of the points table. 3 losses out of 4. Two of the most frustrating teams for their fans year on year. A loss in this game and it would be almost impossible to compete in the tournament. DD doesn't really need to change their personnel or batting order much, they just have to play better. Likely XI: 1 Gautam Gambhir (capt), 2 Jason Roy, 3 Shreyas Iyer, 4 Rishabh Pant (wk), 5 Glenn Maxwell, 6 Vijay Shankar, 7 Chris Morris, 8 Rahul Tewatia, 9 Mohammed Shami, 10 Shahbaz Nadeem, 11 Trent Boult RCB must change their game plan for sure, their batting order and a player or two. Not sure if bowling can be improved a great deal by selections, but middle order surely can be and must be strengthened. QDK, Virat and AB should not bat at 1,2,3. This is a combination worth trying ... W Sundar M Vohra + Q DeKock * V Kohli AB DeVilliers C DeGrandhomme M Singh C Woakes S Ahmed / K Khejroliya / P Negi U Yadav Y Chahal (OR) W Sundar + Q DeKock * V Kohli AB DeVilliers C Anderson C DeGrandhomme M Singh P Negi S Ahmed / K Khejroliya U Yadav Y Chahal
  11. IPL thread allocation

    I'll make the RCB vs DD match thread.
  12. THIS !! I've said this when that fresh auction happened in 2011. Teams changed so much in personnel that it was hard to maintain loyalty among fans. In a free auction, the franchises can buy whatever players they want and build the team whichever way they want, but it would be nice for fan loyalty and support if the team personnel remained fairly consistent across many years with a fair representation of local players. Karnataka has so many good batsmen .. Agarwal, Rahul, Nair, Uthappa, Pandey ... pity not even a single one plays for RCB.
  13. KL Rahul is the next batting superstar from Asia

    But but but he didn't score 150's like Dhawan and Rohit did against SL, you know that series where SL lost 0-9.
