In a different scenario, Kallis' role at #3 might become questionable. You want a big hitter at #3 in T20s. That way, if a wicket falls early, he can come in and make use of the powerplay. Or if there is a good start, he can come in and start to up the run-rate immediately. Having said that, Kallis' ability to give us 4 overs every single game is too useful to ignore. I think Yusuf at #3 might be worth a gamble, for at least one game.

Banglore losing yesterday to Punjab was good for us, hopefully Delhi can beat Hydrabad today so the three (KKR, RCB, SRH) will all be on same points from same no. of matches. Hydrabad right now has chance to go ahead of us once they catch up on matches.
Mumbai could also join as teh fourth team with same points from same matches if they win against CSK.
And of course we need to keep winning, our next match is against Punjab, which could be tough. Though we can take positives from last time we played them and also hope they have a bad day.
On another note, I wonder why Gambhir didn't use Ryan at all for bowling, esepcially considerign other bowlers were getting pretty smashed last game. It's worth giving him an over or two. They really need to utilise their players better.
