KKR lost even to Royal Challengers!! They definitely deserve to end up at the bottom of the barrel now. Imagine losing to a team that loses to everyone else!!
As if it'll help make things better, SRK has come back to India and says he’ll go back to SA only when his team starts winning matches. Someone needs to tell him that his team’s performance has nothing to do with him being in SA or not. It’s all a result of Buchanan’s crappy “strategies” which he's endorsing, and till the time he continues to do that, his team will continue to lose – irrespective of whether he’s in SA or Mumbai or Mars or the moon!!
A more effective option might be to send Buchanan back to where he came from. That might help.
On the other hand there are rumors that SRK is planning to sell off his stake in KKR. Are things really beyond redemption? Maybe not, IF he gets himself to accept the root cause of his team's misery - the Coach. KKR has some really good players on board. Not like their talent evaporates when they're playing for KKR & returns when they have to play for their country! The problem lies beyond.
On the other hand, Preity Zinta’s team is playing quite well. They had a pretty modest score to defend against Mumbai last night (120) but they did it.
Much as I'd like to see Rajasthan in the semi-finals & even the finals, I don't think they'll make it. But they've still got my heart :)
My picks for the semi-final are – Hyderabad, Mohali, Delhi & Mumbai/Chennai. What’s your’s?
