So after some exciting twists and turns IPL finally reaches the play offs with rain washouts too adding to the suspense! The most conspicuous absentee from the play offs has to be KKR who started strongly but lost the plot in the last crunch game! KKR has to blame no one but itself leaving out both Brad Hogg and Sunil Naraine only to drop somebody w/o match practice out of the blue !Bizarre ! SRK pays the price ? Now coming to the play offs although CSK tops the table to retain its image of a champion side but it hardly played like one. In fact CSK and RR look a tad weaker sides compared to RCB and MI who certainly look the two stronger and more balanced sides raising the hope of RCB winning their maiden IPL title! CSK had some narrow wins while some of their losses were heavy and against lowly placed sides! They are brilliant in fielding which in fact won them few close games but they are clearly struggling with both batting and bowling. Dhoni’s ‘Helicopter’ seems to have virtually crashed although his instinctive and tactical moves could still see the side through on a given day assuming likes of Hardik Pandya doesn’t torpedo it. Nehra has been taking wickets but looks unpredictable and Ashwin ties down batsman alright but is unable to pick wickets when needed. So Bravo is the lone CSK player coming up with some consistent performances and could prove the savior. Mumbai with home advantage certainly look the clear favorites in the first Qua
