Mumbai into the IPL after a pretty easy win over Chennai.  Hyderabad and Delhi play today and winner gets Chennai in the eliminator.  Mumbai has the best overall squad, Delhi has some great young players that are fun to watch, Hyderabad probably doesn’t have any chance since their only two batsmen departed a while back for World Cup prep, and Chennai is basically an old folks home cricket squad.

But the IPL script writers love them some MS Dhoni so the final will probably be MI vs  CSK like usual.

MI won the toss and elected to bat.  Didn't understand the decision at the time, but guess it worked out in the end despite their pathetic innings (save Pollie).
Lol I missed the toss, just assumed winner would chase.

Hell of a game.

It's officially World Cup Season.

And congrats to MI; heck of a final... the script writers way out did themselves.

Malinga was just fucking awful the entire match then comes in to save the day in the last over.  Jasprit Bumrah - big fucking brass ones on that guy.

Mumbai Indians had absolutely no business winning this final. Mistake after mistake after mistake, drop after drop after drop. But CSK made their own share of mistakes, especially running between the wickets, and didn't hit a single boundary in the last two overs. Bumrah is a beast.

Sri Lanka / Pakistan rained out yesterday so they call it a N/R and give each side one point in the table.  What kind of bullshit is that?

Can you imagine the outrage if one of the big three misses the SF round by one point because their match against Sri Lanka or Afghanistan got washed out?

Can Australia set a record chase for 353 at the Oval? I think they'll get close but run out of time (wickets/deliveries), Aggy style.

Through 12 overs they're matching India's early pace exactly. and haven't lost a wicket yet...

Mixed feelings about his wicket. He wasn't the David Warner we all come to expect today, but he was the anchor today. Oh well, a wicket is a wicket.

Breaking the partnership and removing a set batsman with potential to accelerate was important, I think.

Khawaja is aggressive and a fast scorer, but has trouble with spin at times. He can be had.

If India can keep restricting Australia to ~5 runs an over, then wickets might not matter considering it's becoming a T20 chase setting.

Bumrah still has six overs left, and Bhuvi has five. Using the part-timers in the middle of the innings could pay off in the death.

Bowl out Kuldeep and Chahal...takes India to 38. Maybe 1 more from Hardik. Might be a more expensive over. Australia starting to get one boundary per over. It's close.
