    The effort these teams put into getting gayle out is on another level... It's the Aussie's attitude towards him that worked wonders for MI yesterday.. Gayle did score his fastest test century against Johnson, Bollinger etc but it's the same attitude about cramping him for room and using bouncers. I love the respect guys like Ricky Ponting gives to Gayle because he recognize the match winning quality of guys like him.. I guess playing Warne, Johnson, Gilchrist etc made him appreciate stand out players much more than the avg person.. I can just imagine Ricky Obsessing over Gayle.. and Johnson was stand out winning games for Ricky against SA which explained why Johnson continued playing after his form went.. Ricky Believed in him.. Gayle needs to come up with something tho to fight back.. MI bowling is good with Bhaji and Malinga - experienced and proven wicket takers plus Johnson can be effective when he gets it right.. And with Everybody focusing on getting his wicket Gayle was up for it.. plus chasing 190 did not help.

    Virat kohli abusing the spectators - YouTube!

    Hate it when Indian audiences do this... unnecessary provocation, and then they upload it with a misleading title as well.. Kohli's obviously a douche but 0:35 was a clear cheap shot and a terible thing to say, especially to a hothead douchebag like Kohli.
    This time, I'm totally on his side... only south India crowds in India are sporting and knowledgable... the rest... awful

    Lalit Kumar Modi @LalitKModi Shastri used to get close to few million dollars. If I remember correctly. "@drum222: @lalitkmodi how much commentators get paid in ipl"

    Not sure 'earns' would be the term most people would use.

    Kohli is so **** in the slips... it's a huge worry really, with two of our best slip fielders in kohli and Laxman gone, the replacements haven't been remotely as good

    Edit: meant dravid n laxman... silly me

    Apparently getting a single or a two is always "sensible cricket"

    Slip fielding isn't something you can just switch on. If he's not done it before, it'll take time for him to learn the ropes, so to speak. You'll just have to wait, I'm afraid.

    Intelligence (or lack thereof) of IPL fans confirmed

    64% of respondents thought that it was correct for Shane Watson to be shielded from new ball today

    New ball bowlers were Rampaul and RP Singh

    Should have a poll as to which is the more surprising result:

    a. Watson getting out for 40; or

    b. Owais Shah getting run out

    Yep there are so many moronic things in the commentary.

    The 'length ball' that pitches one yard in front of the batsman. The fact that a bowler misses their yorker length when that happens - it's as though all the bowlers choose to occasionally bowl this 'length ball'. Likewise when earlier in the match someone drops it a little short. The above nonsense that a single/two is sensible cricket and that you should always look for it after you've hit a 6/4. The experience fallacy which is used ad nauseam to explain away everything.

    It reminds me of watching the horrendous BBC commentators on tennis, where nobody ever hits a bad shot or makes a random error. There's always some convoluted psychological bollocks to explain how someone won the point.
