Once you get the team out for cheap score you are more likely on the winning side and thats what RC did to RR. RC bowled RR out for just 92 runs and the man who instrumental in dismissing RR was Praveen Kumar who picked hat trick. Great spell by him. After getting team so cheaply it becomes easy for chasing team and the same happened for RC as they chased total comfortably and winning by 10 wickets. Superb batting display by young Pandey and veteran Kallis who saw them home.. I feel RR have to blame themselves for such debacle as they banned their key player Ravindra Jadeja who was in great form and now they are struggling with injuries and not finding right replacements. RR now on the bottom of the list with 3 losses in the row and also at bottom in terms of self-belief and confidence. They need something special from Warne and Pathan to lift them otherwise they will lose all their matches.
Praveen Kumar shown what he is capable of by picking hat trick at crucial moment and put RC in commanding position. This bowler is capable of moving bowl both ways and if he is used intelligently by captain then I think can win matches alone for the team. He can also be transformed into good all-rounder if he works little more on his batting.
Two matches will be played tomorrow DD V/s CSK and DC V/s KXIP. In the case of DD they have to win this match and gain that momentum which they lost in their last match against MI. DD is having great chance to win tomorrow as CSK is become little weak in absence of their captain Dhoni and DD have to capitalize on that. As far as CSK is concerned they have to play out of the skin to beat DD who will come hard at them like hungry lions.
DC are having great chance to beat KXIP who bit down on confidence after two consecutive losses. As far as KXIP Yuvraj and Sagakkara have to fire at any cost tomorrow otherwise they will meet another defeat and that will not do any good to their progress in this tournament.
