Thread: **Official** Indian Premier League 2013

    Err yea, of course Perera shouldn't try and throw down the stumps from halfway down the pitch, with all three to aim at, knowing if he hits he saves a run and takes out the last recognised batsman.

    Shut the **** up commentators.

    Amazing that the IPL and CA cant recognize the friggin' obvious

    Rajasthan Royals captain Rahul Dravid can tell reliable men when he sees them. Throughout IPL 2013 he has used Brad Hodge, the 38-year-old Australian, low in the order, where he doesn't get many chances. Or so it seems. "He doesn't get many opportunities to bat," says Dravid. "If he bats 3 and 4, there is no doubt he can score 500 runs as well. But there is nobody who can finish the game better than Brad Hodge, especially against quality pace."

    Yes but he's not getting a fair shot at finishing games if he's coming in with a few balls left needing to hit 15 an over.

    He's got a brain, he knows when to attack and when to calmly play himself in. RR lose nothing if he comes in with 8-10 overs to go, because the other guys coming in are gash and just eat up deliveries that Hodge could use to get in - and he's actually good enough to make it count.

    Hodge has a cricket brain yes. But he does not have a brain. Fairly dumb.

    Yeah exactly. There's nothing wrong having him as the designated finisher but he could finish more effectively coming in a bit earlier. No-one's saying he should bat top three but when he came out at #8 with four overs to go and they lost chasing it was ridiculous.

    Oh my word that final spell of Malinga was absolutely hilarious!

    Just such a pity that the spot-fixing saga does raise a few eyebrows at such displays...

    Great over from Faulkner. Mumbai's have sucked balls from the 15th over onwards whilst both batting and bowling. They need a Harbhajan miracle with the bat lol.

    Hodge spending too much time telling the crowd to get pumped and not enough time taking match winning catches. What a douchebag.
