Semifinalists almost confirmed

With DD growing stronger match-by-match, CSK with its brilliant batting & DC with its all-round cricket are almost certain to grab a semifinal birth. The 4th spot could well go to either of MI, RR, RC or KXIP. MI after defeating KXIP convincingly has gained some strength, though they need to put some more spirited effort. KXIP, I reckon is a very strong team with players like Yuvraj, Katich, Sangakara, Jayawardene & Brett Lee in their side, still this side has some bad luck, some bad efforts, because of which they are looking vulnerable, however, some power packed performances could lift their spirits & enhance their chances of the final four. RR with probably the best captain of all the sides haven’t been up to the mark, still players like Warne, Watson & Pathan can bring glory to them. RC looks the weakest of these four, still Ross Taylor showed the other night against KKR, what he is capable of. The late inclusion of Mark Boucher has cost them a lot. To ensure a place in the final four, RC players have to play some extra ordinary cricket & hope that the result of other matches also suits them.

Let’s hope for the best four.
