RCB were thoroughly outplayed in every department of the game. However, the first 15 overs saw the best of RCB’s tight bowling, fielding, dives blah… ( read: Not a RCB fan). MI was down 107/4 at the end of 15th over. That was the turning point. Shikar Dhawan stepped on the accelerator and there was no seeing back from then. Kumble was bowling fine until his no ball and then as they say, rest was history… rather HIS STORY… Pollard was the entertainer of the night.. He was smashing Dale Steyn like he was facing tennis balls from the quickest bowler( dale steyn: dei na varala da… ivan kosu adikara mathri adikaran da enna). Pollard showed no respect….. MI ended up with a very challenging total after putting up 77 runs in the last 5 wickets.
All a team needs is the Big yet small man to just be a part of the team even if he does not contribute much with the bat. That was the case today. Not the best day for sachins blade and it continued on the field too when he tried to catch Dravid at the slips and hurt his webbing and ended up with 5 stiches. Now all thats left for us is to pray he recovers soon and gives us a magical performance for the Finals to thrash CSK(kamal in a movie says: I am a telugu speaking Indian, athe mathri, I am from chennai and I have seen god open the batting for MI!
