Which injury hurt the most? Kallis, Steyn, Kohli?

This Champions League Tournament reminds me of a post floating around the discussion forum during IPL, as WizardPrince calls it, Injury Prone League.

Last night's semis match was painful, pun intended!! It would ofcourse be too convenient to say we lost the match due to severe injuries taking out key players. I mean, we also have to blame the jitters caused by the rains, Raina's burst of pure magic, CSK being the better team that night and so on and so forth.

But if you think about it, we were down three key players: Kallis, Steyn and Kohli.

We missed out on Kallis' experience & consistency. Steyn's bowling battlefront. Kohli's batting prowess.

Which injury hurt us the most?

If we could have had any one of these three players in full form, which would have turned the loss into a victory?

I would say that Kallis's injury hurt us the most. His loss gave us one vacant space and two missing players in terms of utility.

Everything went against us:
1.Steyn out due to injury.
2.Two catches dropped hope rey and jumbo forgive them.
3.kohli and kallis service missing.
4.THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS WE DON'T HAD A PERFECT PART-TIMERS.That costed us because in csk if this hapened to them then Raina will do the job to them.Ofcourse he did for them:(:(:(

It was Steyn's Injury that cost us the game to a great extent. Virat already had a sore a back before the match, it was commendable of him to have even agreed to play under medication that day. And sloppy fielding did us in. The strategy that Analyst Prasanna and Coach jennings had made to tackle CSK went haywire the moment Steyn hurt himself.

Well, CSK took full advantage of Steyn's injury.

It looked like we were scared to even bowl to them, simple catches those were :( We aren't supposed to drop those atleast. It would have made a lot of difference if we held them.

More than injuries, pathetic fielding cost us the match.

Injury might have been played a big role in yesterdays match...But again it was rain which caused big damage to RCB. Due which the pitch was playing different role in first half and it was entirely diff for next half. We can see the ball was coming to bat easily during CSK out there for batting, but when pandey and Dravid started, Morkel able to bowl his dream ball.

Coming to injury, Dale steyn the big man was out due that catch, so the game strategy does'nt work by the end of the day we lost. and also dont for forget the absence of Kallis. But again chennai played a superb innings.

Definitely Steyn's...We had already played without Kallis in 2Matches & Kohli came in when we were 3 down..Steyn's Injury completely changed the Body-Language of the Players,he was our go-to man!
