    IPL is useless yada yada yada.


    See what the IPL has done for Raina's form, confidence and ability.

    What a gun.

    Yeah, great knock. Even better that he went out the next ball hitting instead of just pushing a single and remaining not out.

    What a way to get to a century. I love the way Raina plays that stroke. Fantastic innings. Was a tad scratchy at the start, and was lucky to get away with getting dropped off a no-ball, but he accelerated brilliantly and has got his side upto a very competitive total. Great knock.

    Could be a huge miss by Boucher. 7 runs that didn't need to be given away.

    Yea on a pacy/bouncy pitch you have to attack. Good to have a pitch like this, good cricket contest, particularly with the 100mph bowling...

    Lol @ Raina thanking his mum's food for how strong he is and how far he can hit the ball.

    Superb innings by Raina. No amount of praise is less for that knock. One thing I would like to see is that he doesn't play too many loose shots early on in his inning as once he settles down, he is pretty lethal

    I kind of like the team's composition. For Ind to do well, one or two of the top 5 will have to fire more often than not. So if they do you need depth in bowling to defend the score and even if they don't and we scratch around to 140-150, we still need depth in bowling to protect the score

    that was awsome by Raina on the other hand Smith's captaincy was quite ordinary today.

    Kallis dropped 2nd ball. Very strange decision having him open ahead of Smith. Should definitely have been Smith and Bosman for me.
