I always find that Kohli makes his life as captain more complicated than he needs to. Why he is not opening is beyond me.

The world's most over-rated T20 bowlers 2020:

Morris
Pattinson
Cummins
Unadkat
Jadeja

Fair comment?

CSK can use him.
Yeah. There's no need to have two world-class middle-order batsmen on huge money. They'll just split the available number of balls between them.

Why not have just one batsman and let them take all the available deliveries?

This could well be RCB's best 11, may be with Morris in there somewhere for either Udana or Zampa.

De Villiers is a fecking beast. Unlucky to be stuck in a team like RCB
It's shocking how RCB with peak kohli, peak abd and peak gayle still never managed to win one IPL.

My memory maybe failing me, but I don't think they even got close to winning it with those 3 in their ranks.

great idea to let Hardik bat.
Mumbai idiots for not letting kid Kishan to bat in super over.
Deserve to lose for that idiocy.

Punjab did the same mistake by not sending Mayank bat and today MI did the same.

If only there was a really famous game of cricket where a team played a fatigued batsman with their eye in during the super over and won.

Super over for the ages. Three names on an all time t20 team sheet.

do you it’s down to ego of senior players?

assuming you’re referring to Stokes and Buttler in WC final?
Has it ever happened in IPL?

Yep.

I can only assume Mumbai thought Sundar or Chahal would bowl the super over and sent Pandya in for the matchup vs spin. Kishan was really enjoying himself vs Saini so I don't understand any other reason why Pandya would go in instead.

I think it was seniors asserting their ego.

no way you bowl a spinner for a super over. Morgan made that mistake with poor Adil Rashid in last over vs Australia and got smashed.

Can't think there are many better batting pairs than Warner and Bairstow when it comes to running between the wickets.

Absolutely brilliant on slow pitches like this.

Shame B Kumar can't bat in the top seven. He could be India's Chris Woakes - key player who balances the side.

Just switching into this game. Seems like much slower RR

Is this wicket dead?
Delhi 60-2 after 11o. Why so slow?

SRH were slow too, although they ran well and got lots of twos thanks to Warner and Bairstow.

SRH have bowled well. DC coming back into it though!

This Kiwi commentator is so annoying. Sounds like he's doing a really bad impression of someone else.
