IPL 2016
« on: April 08, 2016, 12:32:59 PM »

The IPL starts up again tomorrow - I'm sure it will have the usual "scripted" drama

Pretty hard to beat RCB's batting line up with Gayle, Watson, AB and kohli

Will he get a game though? Punter mentioned he's the back up batsman to simmons.

If he doesn't play with what they've paid for him then they're seriously stupid

Also with the development of bumrah and pandya on the bowling fronts MI are less reliant on Pollard (if he's back from injury, I don't know) and Corey Anderson being all-rounders, so they could drop one of them and play buttler's instead

I would hope that Buttler would get the gloves over a shoddy keeper like Parthiv Patel!
Buttler is better keeper and better with the bat too.
They are talking about him coming in as a specialist bat, but I would def take him as the keeper too - less of a sacrifice to make!

I'd probably say Patel is a better keeper to the spinners than Buttler. Can remember a fair few missed chances recently and costly ones.
Don't see them dropping Pollard or Anderson. Not sure if pollard is fully fit to begin with - might get a few games to start off with

Odd decision to bat first given what happened in the WC with the dew
Buttler gets a game. KP also in this, be interesting to see what number he bats with faf and smith both playing

Some good biffing at the end from Harbhajan there, but 121 doesn't look enough to defend here.
With Smith, Faf, Dohni & KP in the side this chase should be a formality

Kings XI Punjab - Glenn Maxwell, proved so well last year he is a short game specialist. I think he will be in the Top 5 bats this year in the IPL.
