So..DC lost again and what a close match it was. I genuinely thought Rohit Sharma would see us through. He’s talented and keeps cool under pressure but I was heartbroken when he was not able to score 2 runs of the last ball. Pain Pain Pain! I think DC is as good as being out of the competition. TOday, they take of Royal Challengers Bangalore in Bangalore 😀 Now, isn’t that interesting. It is easy for fans to say that you need to support your team even if they are on a losing spree. True but I cannot be optimistic. I don’t think DC can win today’s match. Taking on the runner’s up from last year in their home city is no easy task and B’lore desperately need to win this match for a place in the semi final.
DC is such a good team on paper…one of the best. But in this series, they seemed so lethargic. SYmonds only got some starts but could not capitalise on them….but hsi typical batting style did not come across…it was almost like he was scared to go for the big shots. Though the bowlers did a bad job in the last couple of games, they did come back in the last one by restricting the Rajasthan Royal to 160+ We’ll have to wait and watch what happens today. I was quite surprised to see Delhi Daredevils lose to Kolkata Knight Riders. IF only Sehwag lasted till the end…it could’ve been a different result. Since DC won’t make it to the finals…my next favs to win the title would be DD and CSK 😀 Fingers Crossed!!
We had a relaxing break over the long weekend…baking muffins, watching movies, eating out and general lazying around 😀 The weather seems to be improving and apparently it will be sunny this weekend…I hope I hope!!!
Finally, my prayers and thoughts are with the families of the 75 CRPF men killed in Dantewada. Such a tragic loss of young brave men. When will peace prevail?
