Proud Runner-ups...

Another close match. Another loss in the lost over. CSK ending up as runner-ups for the second time n IPL history. It might be easy to think about and blame Hussey's catch/six, Hilfy's no-ball/catch in the penultimate over, Vijay's mis-fields, Jadeja's poor throws, Raina's running between the wickets in the last over of CSK batting.

But this team took us again to the finals...  Even quite a few of us thought we never going to make the play-offs (needing 4 wins in the last four matches - two of them against the top two teams), they did made it to the play-offs. They out-classed two good teams on their way to the finals. And even in the finals, they put such a good fight that KKR had it to play to their complete potential. In the finals, they neutralized the two dangerous players (Naraine & Gambhir) and CSK's key batsman (Raina) and key bowler (Hilfy) did came good.

And what more, the team endeared them to us. We loved Bravo & Vijay's dances.. (BTW. which team has the guts to dance like that.. ) The team expressed them self on the field and off the field (Check the team @!/superkings/csk-players-on-twitter-2) Whatever happened today, IPL 5 would be defined by Bravo's sending of Pollard & the story of CSK reaching another finals.

KKR were worthy winners today - just for being a lot more consistent this IPL Season. But we can be assured that CSK players would come a lot more hungrier for titles next season (and in Champions League). Until then, bye from CSK Fansite

For vijay celebrating a catch taken before the confirmation from the umpire, which cost 3 runs and Vijay miss fielding at the boundary which 4 runs. This 7 runs could have won us the championship. Hope Mr. Vijay performs better next year to be retained by the management.

Nice blog robin. Keep writing. Hope we win the Champions league for the second time this year and revenge against MI & KKR.

Everyone must know the fact that winning the trophy twice and entering finals four times and entering the semis all time is not just luck but that impeccable effort paid it. ipl betting tips 2014
