Chennai Super 'Nak'Kings

It remains to be seen how long Dhoni will persevere with Parthiv patel and Morkel. Parthiv never seems to sight the ball and Morkel never seems to send the ball out of sight. Less said about his bowling the better. And Joginder Sharma. Urrgh. 


Badrinath was pathetic today in the dearth overs. Looks like he had a notion that when you got 3 balls left, it is better to waste deliveries trying to take singles to give the strike to Oram than trying for boundaries. Flintoff wasted a few matches. Thank God he got injured or else he would have wasted more matches in the name of an (overpriced) allrounder. Balaji seems to still think he is jogging in Natesan Park and slowly ambles upto the wicket and bowls gentle full tosses.

It is time for others to be given a chance. Else, CSK would end up one place higher than the Bangalore Royal Wallowers. Hopefully, Mumbai doesn't win the finals and KKR doesn't win a match from now. Delhi and Deccan are my other favs.

My previous views on IPL are here and here.

Balaji cost us the trophy last time and he will cost us heavily this time too.

p.s-some women follow cricket too. :)

I agree with your assertion regarding Balaji.
As for the accusation, strange as it may seem I never said women don't or shouldn't unlike the Taliban :)

Hmm...

I gave Bangy a chance last year....this year...they started so brilliantly....

Both the expensive English platers have been useless....we need a no need for KP motion(As a write this, Bangy is free to select a performing player...)

And I side with you....I am going to support anyteam that is against the sidey KKR....Want them to lose every mathc and SRK to go Bankrupt

And I support Mumbai...just for Sachin (and Zaheer)

Had there been no comments, I would have quickly deleted the post and said,"There, I knew our Chennai lad will do good".
Nevertheless, Rajasthan has no batting other than Smith and Pathan.Let us see if balaji is able to bowl those 'searing' yorkers against Bombay, Deccan and Delhi; the 3 teams to beat in this tournament.
