Final Ball Six Keeps CSK Hopes Alive & KICKING

Another final ball victory.
Another CSK batsman comes to the rescue.
Another match where we don't know whether we should be thrilled or disappointed with this team...

They did not start well. They come back strongly. They do well. There is no way that the opposition can win from here. Then they give the opposition a hope. They tighten their noose around themself. Then the oppostiion believes only a miracle can stop them from winning. And in the middle of this tough situation, CSK Win.

Only thing I can say is that "OH! CSK for taking us to such a nervous ride"

Positives:
1. Hussey & Vijay: Hussey & Vijay continue their form of the last year final. Gave the team - a wonderful platform to win the match easily.
2. Bravo: Cometh the hour, Cometh the man.

Negatives:
1. Selection: Seriously, the team did drop Albie Morkel. What is with CSK dropping somebody immediately - after they have done well. At any rate, Albie is a better T20 batsman & most importantly a better finisher than Faf. Any day, Albie Morkel picks himself ahead of Faf. Hope CSK don't repeat this mistake again. Sorry My Mistake. Albie is down with Flu as his twitter states

Fan's Man of the Match: Bravo. For keeping himself cool in the crunch situation - winning with a six from the last ball - is an art.

Albie Morkel tweeted that he is down with flu.Hope is back for the last match against KXIP.CSK missed albie's bowling.Again Dhoni played slowly in the middle but made up in the 19th over with two fours and six.Hussey and Vijay are playing well so Faf can be dropped for Albie in the next match.

> CSK missed albie's bowling

hmm. His stats:

Season Balls Runs Maidens Wickets Best Average Economy
IPL- All Season 1294 1774 - - 4-32 27.72 8.24

His economy rate is 8.24, which means he will let opposition get to 165 *on average*.

Shakib al Hasan

IPL- All Season 243 266 - - 3-17 14.78 6.60

He can probably good at hammering a few balls in the end with the bat, but he is a below average bowler.
