Virat Kohli is currently the the best and no1. batsman in the world in all forms of the game. He is also the VC of team India and as part of succession planning is being groomed to take over from Dhoni in due course. So How is he faring as captain ? Going by the mixed results of losses and wins as captain the general impression one gets is that he is not yet ready to take over. His record as captain in IPL too are that of missed chances of his team RCB often failing in the ko stages in close matches. And yesterday the loss to KKR was no different the way Kohli squandered a match in pocket due to faulty execution! Kohli must understand that Yuvi is not the same old Yuvi who could connect big shots at will. However Yuvi still keeps trying shots unsuccessfully ball after ball w/o bothering to rotate strike that costs the side dearly. Similar thing happened in T20 WC and is strange still Kohli is persisting Yuvi at No 4 position instead of playing ABD at No.4. Yuvi can come at No5. It is time for Kohli as captain to have professional approach rather than take decisions for non-cricketing reasons which would simply not work in tough matches and in KO stages. A far as Chrys Lyn’s catch, it is indeed such out of the world catches and close finishes that make IPL special and popular. Easily it was one of the best catches taken ever that completely turned the match to give KKR an unforgettable win.
Yesterday the luck favoured KKR than RCB, as being such a strong team in IPL, the defeat of RCB is unbelievable !! Any way all the best for its future mathches !! I really pity on Mally for not taking Vinay, Uthappa & Pandey in RCB !!
Has favourite of the masses Gambhir opened his account or not even after playing three matches. Indians are peculiar as they prefer only the date expired, substandard players.(Sehwag,Zaheer, Yusaf pathan or Irfan pathan or Harbhajan)

SKR's family is the only who migrated to India after partition. You Chaddiwals cannot look beyond your communal sight. You seem to be ugly child of Refugee who migrated from Pakistan.

Neither of them are of international class. They are erratic and one match wonders. Surprising what you saw in Umesh Jadhav in this match to warrant an appreciative comment!

is it??? They are the only two bowlers in India who can bowl 140 consistantly... They must play in England Test series instead of useless Ishant and old man Zaheer..
