PHASE 1 : arul anand's review for rc's performance
IN THE FINALS OF THE LAST IPL EDITION WE LOST BY FLUKE. IN THIS IPL WE GEARED UP TO PROVE OUR TALENTS I MEAN TO WIN THIS IPL BUT WE HAD A FRUSTRATING START WITH KKR FIRST MATCH AGAINST KKR WE DID WELL BUT WE COULDNT WIN INSPITE OF A GOOD KNOCK FROM KALLIS. SECOND MATCH AGAINST KXIP WE DID NOT BOWL WELL WHICH GAVE KXIP 200+ RUNS BUT OUR BATTING IMPROVED VRY MUCH WITH KALLIS AND UTHAPPA. AGAIN WE PLAYED WELL AGAINST RR AND WE BEATED THEM AND NEXT IT WAS MI TIME FOR THEIR FIRST DEFEAT AGAINST RCB BY THIS VICTORY WE REGISTERED OUR HAT-TRICK WIN AND THEN CSK LOST TO US NEXT MATCH AND FROM NEXT MATCH THINGS CHANGED FOR RCB TWO CONSECUTIVE LOSES AGAINST DD AND CSK PUTTED RCB IN REVERSE DIRECTION .BUT STILL WE HAD A NICE CHANCE TO ENTER SEMI FINAL.AT THE END OF THE SEVENTH MATCH WE WERE WITH 8 POINTS IN 2ND POSITION.IN THIS PHASE KALLIS AND STYLISH UTHAPPA PLAYED EXTREAMLY WELL AFTER 31 MARCH KALLIS STARTED LOESING HIS GRIP.WE TASTED 4 WINS IN THIS PHASE 1 DUE TO GOOD LEADERSHIP BY KUMBLE AND GOOD COACHING BY RAY JENNINGS.
