    KKR's use of Rajat Bhatia is interesting. He's essentially a middle-order batsman who can bowl a bit, but KKR use him largely as a bowler. He's been up and down, and far from a strike bowler (he's played more matches than he's taken wickets, and economy also over seven, though not by much), but he seems to roll over several overs neatly. However, KKR also have Yusuf Pathan and Laxmiratan Shukla, both significantly better batsmen in the shortest format of the game (Yusuf is the big-hitter and Shukla can also turn up the scoring rate with hits and runs)- and it's absolute, given Bhatia's poor strike rate under 120. Bhatia also performs well in the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy with the bat. Irfan Pathan, the premier T20 all-rounder, is struggling for form and fitness, and no other replacement is in sight. Let's see what you make of it. Unless Praveen Kumar gets into the act.

    EDIT: Who caught the hat-trick first?

    Yusuf Pathan should leave KKR. He's not getting any chances to bowl for this team, and he bats very low down and it's affected his batting a lot. KKR missed a trick by not trading him off. Clearly, picking him for a princely sum when other players bought for less are getting bigger roles, clearly shows a flaw in their management.

    So Manpreet Gony snatches the game from KKR for KXIP. Nice innings, but I'd prefer to see those runs scored by an actual India prospect, namely, Praveen Kumar.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Vinay Kumar deserves a gallantry award for that catch.

    If RCB end up losing this, it has to go down as one of the best chokes ever

    Wild guess - he's been absolutely dire offlate? Dunno, just a guess.

    Rohrer's a good choice IMO - just bizarre that he was pushed in his first match for the team.

    Anyone watching this? Five wickets in 12 balls chasing 120.



    Make that six in 13. Game looked in the bag 20 minutes ago.

    Could barely believe that. The drifter to dismiss Kumar and the googly to dismiss Dinda were excellent but so many wickets just thrown away.
