Share with us how close is the team to your heart or that one moment that gave you goosebumps .

Charged down!

After pumping 90 odd in the last six overs who wouldn't have backed us to win. In fact our six over glory extended for another six overs into the Deccans batting who were struggling to get runs.


I almost though six was our lucky number today, but where's the sixth win? Against KKR, it will be either the sixth win or the sixth loss. Okay enough.


32/1 6.0 chasing 185! It was very disheartening to lose from there. Credit goes to the Chargers for putting up a real solid chase under pressure.


We got the team selection right I think. And Pandey+Kallis opening was good to see. Unfortunately Pandey din't click. And even more unfortunately we decided to put a double anchor! RD and Kallis did well in the powerplay  - again 6 :) - but from there they almost did  Kallis+KP of the Delhi fame. Uthappa and Ross tried too hard after that.


Fortunately Kallis din't have an untimely death this time and Kohli fired in! (wish he played in the caribbean) And we possibly had the most amazing last six overs ever!


So to say our batting was: (average start + magnificent end)/2 = above par


Bowling was pretty good too.. except for the final few overs. Maybe we could have tried White. Maybe Kohli. The partnership was killing us. It was risky but well woth to get that odd wicket. To be fair it would have been a very decision to make. And if it had not worked, we would have been singling it out right here :)


So tough luck! and well played Deccan.


Our case for the semis is getting tougher by the day. Add to that we have some really tough matches left to deal with. Rajasthan in their own fortress and table toppers Mumbai. Well no match is easy picking given every team is in contention now.


Nine wins is a sure semis spot. But it will need a 4/4 to get there! Eight will be a fair chance. And 7 is NRR and some luck!

Very disappointment...........I think the main reason for loss is Anil's Bowling changes...i dont know why Anil is doing this..........If we continue like this we are not able to qualify Semi-Final pot.
Virat you are playing superb innings under pressure..
Bad luck for RCB...........

KarthikD u said,"both the team r played very well"...Dude hw can u said that?i agree that we guys r batted really well but our Bowlers not bowled well...and according to the point table,the better option will,If we forget about the Semis...coz i think with this type of weak nd poor bowling attack can't go through to the semis...

Both the Kumar--Shame on you Guys...After putting a huge total on the board,our bowlers can't restrict DC's...Its not our luck..its a very poor and disappointing performance r shown by our bowlers..

our bowling department is not as strong as our batting ...Van der Merwe should be brought in as he is a superb all rounder....semi's sopt is becoming tougher .... we have too win all the games form now..we have the home advanantage, kumble have to fire from front.. go RCB go you can do it go warriors..!!

I THINK WE SHOULD HAVE GIVEN A OVER ARE TWO FOR PART TIMERS JUST AFTER THE POWER PLAY, COZ AT 7TH N 8TH OVER NO BATSMEN GOES AFTER THE BOWLING, WHCH WOULD HAV CONSERVED 1 OVER OF KUMBLE N STEYN,WHO COULD HAV BOWLED THOSE DEATH OVERS. I FEEL THT VINAY KUMAR IS BEST B/W 6TH OVER TO 15TH NOT AFTER THT.......

Next Match We should replace Cameroon White with Van der Merwe as it was so clear the absence of the extra bowler. Merwe can also hit the ball some distance and a better fielder too. Or else we should play Appanna instead of Manish Pandey, and get Robin Uthappa to Open the Innings.
