Yip, SL achieved their 3rd lowest score in ODI history

Not sure if MI choked, yeah they were in a good position to make a score well over 170 but the CSK bowlers did a very good job at the end. Personally I think that with the way the CSK came out batting, they would have reached any total that MI would have posed to them. CSK has a very good batting and bowling line up and therefore they dominate the IPL for so many years - CSK is a complete dream team. MI was out siders after the Dubai leg but manage to make something when the tournament returned to India but unfortunately the supporters enjoyed their presence in the IPL 2014

Got to look forward to this evening's game and the final

Sigh. Talk about Chokers? Here I sit having had a nine point lead in the Superbru league that I am playing in. Over the past couple of games this has been whittled down to a bare two points thanks to some poor predictions.

For the past two games I've been going with the side having the momentum going into their next game. Firstly the Mumbai Indians and then the CSK side last night. Both lost after having outstanding games in their previous games.

Now it's a case of who to go for in the final. The side with the momentum, which commentators always go on about, or the side who hasn't played for a couple of days and could therefore either be rested or rusty.

Whichever I think it's going to be a pretty good final and may the best side win.

Thinking of predicting a KKR victory.

Right on the money BB - Splendid win by KKR, they paced their chase very well. Saha & Pandey - who would have thought that they will be the highest scorers for their respective teams. This was a good IPL

Amla, the man that will captain the Proteas for Test games and AB will be his deputy. Amla has been around for a long time but I hope that this role does not affect his batting

England vs SL - Lots of controversy surrounding the stumping by Senanayake, these are the rules of the game and the English batsmen were warned by the bowler, so what is the problem? SL won the ODI series 3-2

Was there really anything wrong with that stumping? The guy even warned the batsman before.

I think it's a run-out rather than a stumping, but I don't see a problem with it. The batsman had been warned, and I don't think a warning should even be necessary.
