IPL 2011 Eliminator Match Mumbai Indians Vs Kolkata Kinght Riders

Today Mumbai Indians and Kolkta Knight Riders will play each other for the semi final match against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Yesterday Chennai Super Kings beat RCB in a thrilling T20 encounter and secure its place in the Finals of the IPL 4. Please note that this is the 3 time in the last 4 IPL seasons that Chennai have reached the finals of the IPL. Though they managed to win onlt one finals, still the team looks better this time and their strength lies in the batting in the death overs.

Coming to the eliminator match today, though Mumbai won the previous encounter they were rarely in the top of the game since that magical last over changes the fortunes for Mumbai. The strong looking Mumbai batting line up has rarely delivered in last couple of games.

Here Koklata Knight Riders team looks strong but Mumbai has Sachin and he alone can change the course of the game.

IPL 2011 First Play OFF - Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bangalore

After 70 matches and nearly 2 months the 4 more consistent team now make it to the play offs and two from which will make to the finals of the 2011 Twenty twenty IPL to be played on 28 May at Chennai.

If we take a close look at the four team Royal Challengers Bangalore don’t have a good start but once giant hitting Chris Gayle joined the team fortunes changes and they won 8 out of the last 9 games they played. Mumbai Indians team had the dream start they were at the top of points table for almost 3/4 th of the tournament but they slipped in the end loosing 3 games in a row.

On the other hand the remaining two team Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings have been consistent through the IPL 2011.

Now the qualifier match for the final will be played between the top 2 team in the points table i.e. Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings. Now here Royal Challengers team looks like the one who is going to be the winner not only of this game but also the finals. But on the other hand we have the magic captain Dhoni and one must not forget that Chennai Super Kings are the defending Champions and one of team who have almost same composition as that of last year.

Let’s wait and watch for another 12 hours and catch all the live action of the match. Good luck to both the teams.

IPL Matches - Mumbai Vs Rajasthan Live Score Updates

Yesterday Kolkata Knight riders won the match against Pune Warriors and thus took another step towards the play ofs. Today Mumbai will play against Rajasthan Royals. In the last encounter between both the teams Rajasthan won the game and Sachin was critical about the pitch conditions.

Lets see if the Mumbai Indians can win the match in the home conditions, as far as importance of todays game is concerned Rajasthan Royals are already out of the competition for play ofs whereas Mumbai will need only one win from the remaining games better if they can do it today itself.

Stay tuned for all the live action and score updates from the IPL 4.

Can Ganguly cause problems to KKR Team

He captained the Kolkata Knight Riders team for 2 seasons, played for them for three season and the same team didnt picked him for the IPL season 4. Team management wanted Saurav Ganguly to take mentors role but he rather wanted to play.

At last he got to play some matches for Pune team and now he will be playing against the Kolkata team. All everyone want to see here whome will the Kolkata fans will support there team or the star from Kolkata the dada, the Ganguly. Also will Ganguly like Chris Gayle give it back to the KKR team.

The game between Pune Warriors and Kolkata will not cause much difference to the Pune team but Pune's win or loss if veru much important for Kings XI Pinjab and Kolkata Kinght Riders team. KKR needs to win one of the two remaining matches to qualify for the play ofs.

Here is the updated points table.

Upset win Keeps Punjab hopes alive

I guess none would have predicted Kings Eleven Punjab winning the T20 IPL match against the team leading the points table i.e Mumbai Indians. A team filled with great batsmen, bowlers and hard hitting all rounders first let Punjab score more than 160 runs and then get all out in less than 90 runs. Now Punjab hopes are still live in the tournaments and if they win all the remaining matches they can get to play the play offs.

In another game played yesterday Pune got the second consecutive win by beating Deccan Chargers by 6 wickets. It was nice to see Ganguly batting once again but its time he should look for other roles in the cricket rather than playing.

Only one match will be played in IPL today between Rajasthan v Bangalore at Jaipur.

Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders Continue Winning....

Yesterday Mumbai & Kolkata won their respective matches against Delhi Daredevils and Chennai Super Kings. Delhi rely completely on the captain Virendar Sehwag and moment he fails to bat well team collapses. He had got 2-3 victories for the team single handily but thats not T2o cricket all about. Perhaps Delhi teams management needs to sit down and do the home work for the next IPL season. Don't think I am harsh at Delhi team but frankly speaking they can't do much about IPL 4 and now they have to focus on IPL 5. Team needs some good hitting batsmen and bowler who can take quick wickets.

Mumbai and Kolkata both the teams are now sure of getting ofr the IPL playoffs (next round). Whereas Chennai, Hyderabad and Rajashtan will have to fight hard to get to the next round.

Today two matches will be played i.e.:

  1. Bangalore v Kochi at Bangalore
  2. Punjab v Pune at Mohali
And as I am going to watch the IPL match between Kings XI Punjab and Pune Warriors I'll not be able to post any IPL Match updates today. But perhaps I'll be posting wallpapers from the match. I've got tickets for this IPL match weeks in advance from the Box Office opened specially for IPL match tickets selling in Phase 9 near PCA cricket stadium Mohali. I'll be sitting in the Q-cinemas stand :)

IPL Updates: Sehwag Century and Shane Warne Retirement

Yesterday it was hard hitting by two batsmen that saw their respective teams win the matches. Bread Hodge Last over hitting enabled Kochi Tuskers to beat the tournament favorites Kolkata Knight Riders. On the other hand Virendar Sehwag single handly lead Delhi Deardevils to victory against Deccan Chargers. Initially it seemed that Delhi will not be able to chased the target, at one point of time Delhi was 29 for 3 in 6 overs. But Sehwag scored 119 of 56 deliveries and take on the bowling and make sure target was well within the reach.

Shane Warne announced retirement from IPL: Shane Warne announced his retirement as a player from the IPL. This season will be the last time we will see the legendary spinner bowling, batting and fielding in the IPL matches. Is was Shane Warne who lead the Rajasthan team to win the first IPL. He played the dual role of captain and mentor for the team. Couple of stars in the IPL and Indian cricket today were identified and given support by Shane Warne first.

ICC Cricket Blog team wishes Shane Warne good luck and hope he ends up winning the cup once again.

Hodge strong hitting in last over by Lee helps Kochi

Brad Hodge score 22 runs in the last over by Bret Lee in the T20 match being played between Kochi Tuskers Kerala and Kolkata Knight Riders. Given this onslaugher in the last over and some sensible hitting by Mahela Jayawardne helped Kochi to reach the score of 156 runs. Though this is not a par socre still Kochi team can go for the kill in the initial overs and then might think of finishing the match on winning node.

Here is the detail of the last over by Lee:

1 6 4 6 4 1

You see only the first and the last over of the match didn't get a boundary. Catch the Kolkata teams chase in a few minutes from now.

Please also stay tuned for the next IPL match between Deccan Chargers and Delhi. I wish Delhi didn't play spoil sport for any other teams in the IPL.

IPL Playoff qualification becomes tough for the bottom 4

Mumbai defeated Punjab team in the IPL match played http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifyesterday to reach the top of points table once again. However daily was unable to win the match against Kochi and now needs to win all the matches to qualify for the play offs.

Deccan Chargers is also facing the same condition to qualify for the next round. Deccan team faced the similar conditions in the IPL season two and they emerged as the winners of second IPL. Lets see if they can repeat the same with new captain and new squad. This can be predicted from the todays match against Kolkata Knight Riders. If Deccan team doesn't win the match today then chances of them qualifying the next round will be finished.

Today IPL Matches Live Socres - IPL T20

Two T20 matches to be played today in IPL are:

  • Mumbai v Punjab at Mumbai
  • Delhi v Kochi at Delhi
Both Mumbai and Kings XI Punjab had great start to the tournament but lost couple of the previous matches they played. Still both the teams are in comfortable positions, Mumbaihas always been in the top 4 whereas Punjab had played only 6 matches so one or two victories will take them to the top 4 and hence for the next round of the IPL.

Coming to the second match both the team share equal points from equal number of matches, thus they not only need to win this match but also win the match with a good net run rate. I don't see any of the two teams qualifying for the next round until and unless they win all the remaining matches convincingly. Otherwise they will compete only for not getting the bottom position in the points table.

Results from the IPL matches played yesterday: Yesterday both Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings win their respective matches against Pune Warriors and Deccan Chargers.

Be tuned for the matches to be played in next few days as these matches will be the ones to decide who will play the next round. Also I am excited for two matches to be played in Dharamshala. Wonder when there will be some international T20, one day or test match will be played in the picturesque Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamshala.

Below are few wallpapers of HPCA Stadium, Dharamshala:
