    Gun win. We have a **** record against CSK in matches that count though so I don't expect much.

    I was told last week that Royals will reach the second qualifier after defeating the Sunrisers. They will then meet MI and lose to them. MI will play CSK in the finals and will win it. All except the last have come true so far. The final bit might happen, just might, by default if rule 12.3 is exercised by the other team owners who have to decide in a meeting to be held on the morning of the Finals !!

    Unlikely that the Franchisees will vote against CSK I think but one never knows. The rumours about some of the other Franchisees are stunning so they may act according to where they think their best interests lie rather than propriety consideration. In any event, it is amazing that we have to wait till the morning of the Finals to take a decision whether one of the Finalists should be thrown out. If this does not call for an emergency meeting what does ?

    The IPL was recently valued at more than $3 billion

    If the owners vote against CSK then many will assume that the whole thing is staged and its' value will drop accordingly

    Cant see them cutting their own wrists tbh

    You are probably right.

    By the way, the IPL valuations are a bit of a scam. The Franchisees have lost money in IPL overall. The valuation of individual Franchise is being disputed by them as in the case of Sahara recently who were made to take it for four times what the initial Franchisees had done. If BCCI was to try and sell Sahara's spot next year, it is likely to fetch a much lower sun this time. So these things have some complications to put it mildly

    Yep. Not surprised at all. If they're going to lose I hope Chennai chase it down really quickly so I can go to bed.

    Yeah, extra 10/15 runs could have been immense.

    Probably the least exciting and most deadeningly depressing match in recent memory. I don't think I have ever cared less about a cricket match, sad times.
