I must salute Anil Kumble, how well he adapted to T20 cricket even after retirement and the way he is captaining the side it looks he will not lose single game. Most importantly Anil Kumble himself leading from the front and his bowling has got even better after retirement. I feel he should come out of retirement and play for
in T20 World Cup. India
He is legend. RCB defeated CSK easily at Bengaluru. CSK tasted the same medicine which they gave to KKR. CSK controlled game for 15 overs and in last 5 overs of RCB innings they suddenly lost the grip and allowed RCB to score above 160 runs which was 30 runs more. Finally Kallis got out in this tournament and Balaji was the bowler who dismissed Kallis so that was one of the highlight of the match. Utthappa played superb innings of 68 for RCB and it was his batting which allowed RCB to score more than 160 runs. CSK dropped Utthappa twice and Utthappa took full advantage of those two chances. When CSK came into bat they suddenly face set-back as Parthiv Patel got out very early in the innings and Matthew Hayden was also not allowed to score freely which really build the pressure on CSK and their batting collapsed badly and they lost the match very easily. I feel CSK lost the momentum after their close loss to KXIP and they are also missing captaincy and batting of MS Dhoni who is injured. At this moment RCB have some advantage as they are on the top of the table by winning 4 matches out of their 5 and they have confidence and momentum with them to do well in coming matches. Without Pietersen and Ross Taylor they are doing well Think when both of them will join this team after their international duties, how formidable RCB become.
Teams of Priety Zinta and Shilpa Shetty will clash today. At this moment both teams are in the bottom of points tally and their situation is quite identical as both teams coming to this match with a win in their last matches and it will be interesting to see which team will capitalise on the momentum. It will be also the clash between two brothers Yusuf Pathan(RR) and Irfan Pathan(KXIP). It is must win situation for both teams to progress further in the tournament but irony is that only one team will win. I feel KXIP will starts as favourites as they have quality players in their side. As far as RR are concerned they don’t have big players except Yusuf Pathan and Shane Warne.
