IPL Blues!


Shah Rukh Khan’s KKR could do nothing good to itself, but it had dealt the death blow to RR. By beating Rajasthan Royals today Kolkata Knight Riders threw the winners of IPL-1 out of the tournament. In another extremely low scoring match CSK managed to beat Kings Eleven Punjab quite easily in the end and secured its semi final berth.

Now the two more spots are still open. Tomorrow’s match between DD and MI is inconsequential as MI is already eliminated. But the other match between DC and RCB is like the super final. The winner goes to semifinal straightaway. The loser gets locked with Punjab in terms of points e.g. 14 each and the net run rate will decide the fourth berth. Punjab’s prospects are worse as it has the lowest net run rate.

So then, the most probable semi final line up: DD, CSK, DC, RCB.
