Very good all round performance. Good strategy to play with 2 specialist spinner narine and kuldeep and 3 fast bowlers. Rana is also there as a third spinner but part time just to fill one or two over. I would say prasidh Krishna is better bowler especially in depth over. Captain and coach should warn uthappa for playing those careless shot. He got out with similar fashion on no of time in this ipl. It is ok for narine but not for uthappa as he is specialist and responsible batsman
Prasidh is just not ready for this stage. Mavi at least has good pace, and is a good fielder. Prasidh doesn't seem to be either.
Narine is proving to be more than a worthy buy. Top wicket taker, top 5 run getter, top strike rate. What next - flying catches
Robin Uthappa needs to value his wicket more than he has been of late. Such a top player of this format, and throwing his wicket away pretty much each time.
Still in two minds about Chris Lynn. I don't watch much cricket now so I wasn't aware of his existence until this IPL, but this guys is supposedly a "big striker" of the ball. Haven't seen anything like that this season.
Finally DK. Again, my only cricket exposure nowadays is IPL, so I am very surprised to see how he has evolved as a player from more than half a decade ago, when his inclusion in the squad would be a major surprise for me.
Really happy how the team spirit came back after a short low. Happy for the players, the coaches and the other responsible that they reached the Playoffs despite the cries of the naysayers after the auction. Now it would be gorgeous if they get the cup
Good win. Happy to see cris Lynn back in form and playing with confidence though he had scored reasonably well throughout the tournament but yesterday he was middling very well. Everyone carried out their role perfectly in last three game and that is good sign for a team
Not yet. Not yet. KXIP can still make it to the playoffs. I really really hope not. RR is much easier to beat, they don't have the Gayle ex-factor. Especially if their English players will be going back home soon.
Well done my man! Brilliant strangle in the end from KKR. Facing SRH will be a much tougher proposition for them. But, they should be able to handle Shakib and Rashid much better than RR's spinners. Well played KKR. No matter how it ends, excellent overall season!
