´RQOTD by Prerak Patel Which animal has the largest genital in proportion to body? ØIPL Points table - 08/05/2012 (metros on top again) by Abhinav S We have a new table leader. KKR is right on top now. Today's games are very very important for the teams in the bottom half of the table. Pune take on Rajasthan and Punjab take on Deccan. This will most likely decide if any of these teams will be able to challenge the top half of the table. Also, its interesting to note the 'metro city' teams have taken the top 4 spots with the '5th metro' right behind (any patterns here?).

King Duryodhana was humbled for his excessive pride. Ravana was destroyed due to excessive womanising. Hence one should shun excessiveness in all things.

He is young and bats well too, makes me think why is he not in Aussie team! Today's joke www.ajokeaday.com A young child walked up to her mother and stared at her hair. As mother scrubbed on the dishes, the girl cleared her throat and sweetly asked; "Why do you have some grey strands in your hair?" The mother paused and looked at her daughter.

The little girl stood there thinking. She cleared her throat again. "Mother?" She sweetly asked again. "Yes?" Her Mother replied. "Why is Grandma's hair all grey?"

Looks fine except for Ganguly who is not at all in touch and Uthappa also is under performer. It is not that all the Indians are shining but the main players who has the experience are doing good with some new comers like Rahane and Mandeep sharma.
True. And the apex was the match was against KKR at eden garden. He came after 5 or 6 wickets down, actually he should have come lot earlier to stabalize. Although they defended it by saying that it was a strategy but lokked like he was plain nervous.
Yeah, I commented on that here that day. A truly cowardly act, coming in at #7. The dada of old may have opened and taken his team to victory. Or would at least have gone down fighting till the last ball.
Sadly true. We do have some other little known players who played well this time, like Mandeep, dhawan etc. But they are no where good for the national selection. Also T20 cannot and should not be a parameter for a place in national ODI or test team.
Is it? Apart from Smith and somewhat White and Marsh I don't see other who has the bigger impact. We have some good performances from Lee, hogg and others but not consistent. Others either have played less matches (one or two) or haven't delivered yet. Also if you see the top run getters and wicket takers, we have only one Aussie (White) at 9th position in batting and none in bowling.
One worrying aspect in this season's IPL is that while there have been many close games, the overall quality of cricket is poor. It's just 2 teams both making mistakes and the one that makes fewer mistakes win.
