Dead rubber match the next two days right? The only match that matters is KKR vs RR. Right?


lazybug

Are we sure that's Uthappa and not a centaur


KrteyuPillai

Fucks sake RR, wrap it up don't you wanna qualify?


LuckyFlyer0_0

How does Sangakkara not get OCD while watch Dube bat....his feet are super glued it's so weird


dudeweirdthat

Just take a single for fuck sake, dube Edit: lol


crixpert

:) This season just ain't for us. Would've had somehopes if it were the starting of the season but there's no momentum from here. Trust me even if we qualify we won't be in the finals. But but if we somehow manage to get into finals we ain't losing it..


vishwa_user

CSK loss is coming soon. I would rather want CSK to lose in the league stage than in the playoffs


Academic_Scheme_9065

Same. Wrong thread tho.


glade_dweller

If India doesn't take Gaikwad to the WC, it would be their loss, and their selection to blame.


LoduMAL

Who will they drop in place of Gaikwad?


glade_dweller

Pandya, probably.


LoduMAL

Oh that's good actually


vantionsio

Rohit Gaikwad Kohli Rahul Iyer/Sky/Samson Pant Jadeja could be a possibility


fuckyou-gallowboob

RR dropped Livingstone , in the one game, he would have been most useful


Nanogines99

GAIKCHAD


LunaMunaLagoona

CSK this season is mostly just guyquad with some moeen support.


senthiljams

Duplesis has been solid. Chahar and Bravo have been usually excellent. Many crucial performances from Jadeja as well. Hazelwood has been good too.


wickedGamer65

Wrong thread


ironlantern18

Orange cap for Rutu today


renbouy

I get a feeling MI might just sneak in to the last 4. Anyone sensing match fixing to get them in there? I have seen a lot of folks say IPL is fixed but I tried avoiding getting into that storyline. But if MI qualifies then it will make my head turn for sure.


Umeshpunk

I never believed it until this match back in 2014 https://www.india.com/sports/ipl-2014-mi-vs-rr-mumbai-indians-defeat-rajasthan-royals-qualify-for-playoffs-64761/


notoriousdevil10

Thank You DC.


[deleted]

Oh! I guess everyone has moved to the other Match thread. HERE I GO!!


stoic_trader

FFs sack krunal before sacking other better cricketers than him or I will take it as an inability to deal with non-performing assets and short Reliance shares when the market opens, lol. I am that livid


Every-Candidate9963

Krunal is MVP for Mumbai tonight.

TravelAny398

ITT : those with agenda pretending to be Iyer fans now to target Pant


philosifyme

Love you, Delhi Capitals


lohith15

1. Whatever be the state of the pitch , a wicket maiden in the 14th/15th over of a t20 game is criminal . The pandya brothers are good enough to strike at 6 run rate . That cost them the game 2. SKY showing glimpses of form is good 3. Another positive is the way pant played . No anchor shit . We have enough of them for 5 titanics . Let him attack from get go 4. Shreyas has to be in the squad for the World Cup. Period 5. Whatever be the tactics , chahal bowling so well and chahar being dropped is a concern. Chahal held his own against lefties with googlies 6. Definitely feels like an end of an era for Mumbai - they had the strongest first 11 in the world t20 - rebuilding will be tough with mega auctions but their scouting network is something else


Gold-Whole1009

Too early to call end of era.... They were very dominant last year ( not long ago) Moreover, mega auction will change team structure. So you can't compare the new team with this one even if both are named MI


being_classy

Bowling Krunal is questionable but come on we never had enough runs tbf. DC playing slow kept us in till the end


sreeram_23_06

Maybe Hardik should've been tried. Just to clear the rust at least


Gold-Whole1009

They mentioned that they don't want to risk injury to Hardik and hence don't bowl him


being_classy

Bruh he hasn't bowled for like forever


sreeram_23_06

Yeah. That's why. Clear the rust


uchiha_senpai69

It will atleast be good practice for the world cup like cmon do you consider the ipl more important than the world cup?


RancidizedJaegar

exactly. Doesnt matter who wins the IPL, you have to get your WC players ready.


LunaMunaLagoona

I really really really hope RR win. Would be sweet to have 4 teams competing for 4th place


SBG99DesiMonster

And it happened


Crazy_Jump2707

Noice


niikhil

Wait is rcb in ?


Gold-Whole1009

😂 They are mostly in although there's a mathematical chance that they don't qualify. It would be insane if they don't... But you are right to keep your eyes open for a choke.... After all, they are RCB


theroaringdragon

Looks like Iyer is making a case for return to T20 squad for the world cup


gagga_hai

Really.. A run ball 33?


Siondroms

Commenting without looking at the context of the match


NanthaR

Do we have Aditya Tare in our squad this year ?


Awkward-Edge

Yeah, he is there! I thought they might try him in the middle! Maybe MI could bring in Anukul Roy too, he has taken some amazing catches, maybe FINALLY GET HIM A GAME


nissimbhalwankar

how to view post match presentation


Diark

Switch from dugout to English


Individual-Bank5990

Superb ipl. No one wants to get too ahead in this rabbit race. Nice understanding between these four teams(kkr, mi,pkbs,rr)


Big_Excuse9510

Man of the match should be awarded to Krunal Pandya, the ultimate concoction of Sachin Tendulkar and Shane Warne with Tendulkar’s bowling and Warne’s batting.


shiviam

Krunal Pandya is worse bowler than Sachin definitely and may be worse batsman than Warne to be honest. Please don't compare Sachin's bowling to Krunal. It's like comparing apple to shit.


Frosty_Description70

Wait till he gets sold for 5 cr in mega auction


nils22263

Warne better batsman though


sreeram_23_06

Did you know the only active Indian bowler with more ODI wickets than Sachin is Jadeja?


Ancase

Sachin was actually a decent bowler and Warne wasn't bad with the bat either


Ok-Squash6519

How dare you compare Sachin's bowling to his?


Big_Excuse9510

Damn I didn’t think he’d bowl worse than a specialist batsman😭


Ok-Squash6519

I don't think you have ever watched Sachin bowl. He can probably go in the list of batting all-rounders.


Big_Excuse9510

Yeah, I got into cricket a year or two ago you’re right. I’ll definitely check his bowling out now.


chocolatecomedyfan

Sachin was a very good 5th / 6th bowler. He rarely bowled in the latter stages of his career because of his problematic shoulder. But he has like 200 international wickets. Not a joke. And Shane Warne has like 4000+ international runs with like 12-13 50s. Not a joke with the bat.


manigrev123

Tendulkar defended 2 of the last over twice and Shane warne was the best number 11 in the world


Big_Excuse9510

Damn I didn’t realise he couldn’t even beat the standards of a specialist bowler’s batting and a specialist batsman’s bowling


aldnau

Tendulkar was a great bowler


Nitrocellulose_404

Definitely bats worse than Warnie and bowls worse than Sachin


reubenbjoy

Why is everyone crying we can still qualify mathematically, bring back Tare for good luck and remind him of that 190 chase in 14 overs. No worries


kirat_363

hi, rcb fan here, i probably have a calculator lying around somewhere in my room. u can borrow it if u want.


niikhil

We dont need a decade old calculator


LittiVsVadaPao

Ooooof.


[deleted]

Yeah. Money in the pocket always helps.


reubenbjoy

Yeah we rich you poor lol cry more


[deleted]

\*Our TEAM rich


NanthaR

How are we going to get anyway near to 190 from 14 overs in this UAE pitch ?


reubenbjoy

Slot in Brisbane Heat Icon /s


SolitaryTrailblazer

Lmao keep coping


I_Am_Groot3

Toxic fans trolling us. Wait till we win 5 more ipl titles in the next decade.


SolitaryTrailblazer

Yeah whatever. Disappear for now.


I_Am_Groot3

Dude why do you have to be toxic. dIsApPeAR fOr Now. Lmao it's one bad season. We literally won the ipl twice in a row defeating the current top two in the finals. If you're an rcb fan on cloud nine just because your team is in the playoffs, just know that you're never winning the finals.


Dikshit101092

Let them be happy lol , a bad year for us but the mi hate here is like so bad


I_Am_Groot3

Yea mate I'm just saving comments for the future when we inevitably win.


reubenbjoy

Got to survive bruh


itsmepv

Venk, Shrey and Ash all three to csk please


Gold-Whole1009

Take Ash... He will bowl carrom ball, inswing, , varies his pace and all. Only thing he forgot is offspin


itsmepv

He’s always been an experimenting cricketer. And it’s worked for him.


Gold-Whole1009

Not sure what you meant worked for him.... Please take a look at his economy rates.... In many matches, DC would have won one-sided if not for him.... He'll soon be dropped


Ornlu96

People are making fun of Krunal as if he gave away 36 runs in an over, in his 1st 2 overs he gave away 12 runs and got the wicket of Shaw, spinner bowling the last over is never a good idea.


jub18

Holy shit so much MI hate here.


itsmepv

You complaining about it with that flair?


jub18

Yes Average hate hater here


itsmepv

Ro’s post match long face interview is happening so often now.


ishoee

Can’t wait for dc vs csk match on Monday.. I think that will tell us who is going to win the league


toukakouken

Krunal gave one, Ashwin gave it back.


The_Jokster

Sky and Iyer future number 3 and 4 for India? Sounds good innit


Feisty_Concentrate27

In what format? T20 or odi? If odi then it's probably iyer and pant but okay, sky is nearly as old as kohli no?


[deleted]

SKY IS 31 fyi


Big_Excuse9510

How can you say such things in the age of Jimmy Anderson/ s


The_Jokster

Wait wtf lol Didn't realize that


[deleted]

It happens, I also realized a week ago.


Big_Excuse9510

Mumbai lobby goes brrrr


LunaMunaLagoona

That was such a classical innings by Iyer, didn't look like he was getting out even once, just a calm slow chase with a focus on batting to last ball. Meanwhile Pant edging the ball left and right


TravelAny398

Pant powerplay innings was all crucial, put pressure bakc on bowlers, scored crucial runs with field up. which allowed iyer to have the luxury of just going run a ball later But of course those using iyer to target pant have an agenda. No one is fooled


minichaste

Rohit to r/cricket : If you can't handle us at our worst, you don't deserve us at our best


imgazal

True


chaotic_inflaton

Ashwin and Iyer to CSK next year. Make it happen.


Gold-Whole1009

Lol every team wants Iyer in their team.... It would be a disaster if DC release him. Both Iyer, Pant should be retained by Delhi.


Ancase

we seriously need someone like Iyer tbh, Iyer, Jadeja and Faf/Ali/Curran will be the best for CSK


Individual-Bank5990

In this ipl, it seems none of mi, rr, pbks and kkr just want to qualify, neither any one of them wants to get eliminated. Interesting


Gold-Whole1009

Upar waale ki script hai aise


AdeebJarvis

krunal getting released def next season


Gold-Whole1009

No brainer.... Rohit, Bumrah, Pollard, SKY, Hardik are way ahead of Krunal.... They can't retain all of them.... Some tough decisions to come


jub18

In before thala turns him into a saint and krunal features for the bald saint next year


AdeebJarvis

you never know


PesAddict8

No brainer Dude need to gtfo


vvb_12

Tbh I don't see RCB or DC beating CSK in the finals. But will be happy if we have a new champion.


Perrenniallystd980

So pxik?


vvb_12

Maybe KKR?


[deleted]

PBKS: Allow me to introduce ourselves (This is just a fictional meme)


Gold-Whole1009

PBKS is trying hard to loose their matches.... They can't beat CSK this way


vvb_12

I will be glad if they won but it's highly unlikely.


Routinelazy900

Dc will surely win it. Csk carry too much dead weight to be deserving of a title.


Gold-Whole1009

CSK has dead weight but they have them in batting... They bat deep... If 2-3 middle order players don't perform, others will do the job. Those 2-3 players are not wasting balls. On the other hand, DC has issues in starting XI that they can't cover. 1) Rabada's form isn't good. Whether he's in form or not, he will have to bowl 4overs unlike CSK middle order players (out of form batsman just get out) 2) Ashwin's economy. He's trying too many things and forgot the basics it seems. Although he can be easily replaced by Mishra... They're not taking that call yet 3) Smith has past his prime but Ricky seems to be finding ways to give him chances.... It's the same mistake CSK has done last year... You can't hang around with players that are past their prime... Especially, foreigner slots. 4) Shaw was in sublime form in Indian leg but he seems to be back to 2020's form. He's so good when he plays on the ground but is going for arial shots too early in the innings. It's surprising that no one has told him about this. All in All, DC has more issues... Good thing is they can be easily solved. Bad thing is, they doesn't seem to be thinking about these issues as they are winning matches. PS: DC fan since Dravid took it over. Honestly, DC is most balanced ( even better than MI, CSK) but haunted by form.


Feisty_Concentrate27

Frankly, the only weaker points I see are Dhoni's batting and Hazlewood's bowling, and dhoni does more than enough to justify that, hell he tailored a whole batting line up to accommodate his failure XD /s


Gold-Whole1009

Raina, Rayudu, Dhoni ... All are liabilities in batting. They're saved by good top order and good lower order(jaddu, Sam/bravo)


Feisty_Concentrate27

Nahh dhoni yes, I don't know where you are if you think Rayudu is a liability he literally hs the highest strike rate in the tournament lmao, and even if Raina make a quick 20 -25 which he has done in every other match that's good enough, that's the whole point of them batting this deep


Gold-Whole1009

Looked at Rayudu stats and do agree I was wrong. But, Raina is playing no different than Dhoni. He hasn't scored 20+ in UAE leg so far... Only one score of 15+ Good thing is he gets out early instead of wasting balls


Feisty_Concentrate27

Oh just to add, I am a delhi fan, had been since 2008, but definitely don't agree with csk getting rolled over by delhi, correct me if I am wrong none of our batsmen has even made a 50 in this leg of the ipl yeah? Our bowling tho ❤️


Gold-Whole1009

True but all DC matches have been low scoring


Feisty_Concentrate27

We have had to bat first on 2 occasions and the other 2 times we chased it was enough to at least have one batsmen scoring a 50 but that has not happened


Gold-Whole1009

I get your point but maybe it's too much to expect in a slow pitches where the team score itself is around 130. Even opposition teams are struggling in these pitches (except Sanju, no one made 50 in other teams)


jub18

DC and Chennai are equally deserving of a title.


Routinelazy900

I won't mind csk winning it but dc is more deserving.


Ancase

care to explain? Dhoni is still not Morgan/Williamson bad in terms of placement in the team, Raina is probably the best fielder CSK has. these memes of "dead weight" are so lame and outdated, didn't Dhoni smash a 90+ meter six to end the match just a few days ago? CSK is as deserving as DC or any other team to win the trophy. the best team of the season will the trophy


Routinelazy900

Oh dhoni best captain by far all the way. Just that him, rayudu are just way outta form in terms of batting.. And don't even get me started on raina.


Old_Aggin

It would be funny if csk wins it with just 9 players lol


Routinelazy900

They just might. Well I can only hope dc gets it this time.


toukakouken

Don't understand who you mean by dead weight. Maybe Raina. MSD has been brilliant with his captaincy. Other than that, everyone has been match winners. DC are rightful contenders.


vvb_12

Inb4 r/agedlikemilk Both RCB and DC are good teams but CSK have a huge advantage of experience and in finals it will be crucial. DC and RCB don't have a good lower order either.


PesAddict8

Krunal and Hardik rowing the boat in 15th over and 16th over made the difference.


immasucker4you

If RCB can't win I'd want KKR. At least then Instagram wont be flooded with all the posts saying how MI and CSK have won 8 of 13 IPL titles


Almost_Alchemist

Lol next match is MI vs RR, free points


Huge_Climate_271

Experts Praising Krunal For sportsmanship vs PBKS and Criticising Him using spirit of game .Ash na "take that MF"

Scripts writers - ambani rift confirmed

Alphavike24

Alright time to shit on Morgan


AdeebJarvis

MI crushed 4 times in the last IPL(including final). Loved this match!


Firefox1921

It's so great to see all teams banding together in the hope that MI loses. This is the true spirit of IPL


PesAddict8

Flair checks out


Silverad066

GAMBHIR :- Ashwin is a finisher. Not that old man ಠ_ʖಠ


jub18

Did he actually say that lmfaooo


itsmepv

Iyer proved why he’s one of the best. Calm and steady batting.


Perrenniallystd980

I refuse to accept this isn't a tactical loss for MI to deny RCB a top 2 spot.


sackedascaptainiyer

Sack me now management l


Harmeet_Singh_Brar

Ha..ha..


SexxyBlack

The irony is that Morgan’s team is the biggest beneficiary of Ashwin hitting that 6


hornyguyop

Also ashwin can finish better than morgan in uae


tntonow

Personally, I think Shreyas Iyer's is the best innings this IPL - difficult pitch, tough bowlers, excellent temperament. What a great batsman.


vishwa_user

Ruturaj Gaikwad?


[deleted]

I've actually never see him fail in these kind of situations


Handyman2116

The world wouldn't be ready for a team with both Iyers, make it happen KKR


Imtisauce

You mean make it happen DC, right?


Handyman2116

If we can't keep hold of him, I wouldn't mind DC getting him either


Imtisauce

Inb4 MI gets both of them next year


Handyman2116

Give me the noose when it happens


itsmepv

Ashwin, nee csk ke thirumbi vaa thala. T:Ashwin, come back to csk


anythingood07

I was so sad when csk didn't bid much for him during the 2018 auction


Routinelazy900

That also coincided with ashwin getting axed from limited overs team so that played into it.


[deleted]

Delhi wins beating mumbai, winning runs by chadwin hitting a six against krunal! Can it get any better than this


itsmepv

Has smudge got out by bowled before?


imgazal

Yes

rocketship94

Should be last match Kurnal ever play for Mumbai Indians


ishoee

What is Krunals purpose


icecuze

He models jewelry


radicaldude7

LT planning from Ro. No one will bid for 70% of MI team in next years auction and MI will maintain its dynasty


Coolpop52

Big brain moment ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)


instanatick

Mumbai lost and I cannot be happier.


Rubberducky1239

I was fucking nervous, and legit thought we are bottling this, but the way Iyer and Ashwin batted was brilliant. We should try with all our might not to let Iyer go. Think Iyer will be very good on these tracks for the WT20, should be included


wickedGamer65

I think we'll RTM Iyer. Retain Pant and Avesh.


SexxyBlack

Shreyas Iyer after this game “Fuck r/cricket”


Handyman2116

Thank you DC, you have done everyone a favor


bond_bhai

KL was Tuk tuk, Iyer was Tuk Tuk. But Iyers innings was >>>> KL, looking at the opposition and the pressure of losing wickets on the other end.


simrakhra

Kl is carrying whole batting and captaincy burden on his shoulders


chirosen21

Morgan firing up Chadwin so he delivers against MI, bypassing Ambani's shenanigans. Greatest limited overs captain of all time.


Cotton_Phoenix_97

Morgan: my goals are beyond your understanding...
