Difficult game to weigh up today, Pune have been poor all tournament and Delhi have been struggling of late. I could do with a Pune win for my "Punjab to finish bottom" bet but I'm not holding my breath here!

Pitch at this venue has been either very bad (Mumbai got 2 low totals) or very flat (Mumbai smashed 200+ last game) so this is one to wait for some in-play bets IMO.

Another advantage of that tactic is we'll know the make-up of the teams by then. Delhi have frequently chopped and changed their side, and Pune may give some fringe players a go since they are already out.

Another tough game to between the knight riders and the lions with Andre Russell likely to miss the game that is a big blow for KKR batting and bowling and I slightly favour the lions on that basis

if KKR had any chance it wasn't helped by giving away 14 wides in the first 7 overs! :shock:

Its a big game for you today Nellberg Pune v Punjab to decide who gets the wooden spoon ( I have plenty of them myself ) . It really is hard to call as well with both likely to make changes I can't call it but like VIJAY top bat Punjab and you probably have to go RAHANE Pune top bat he is by far their top scorer .
GOOD LUCK YALL.

Nellberg that was close thank goodness for Dhoni .
I like the lions here to beat Mumbai who can often throw a bad performance in .

I got lucky with the Dhoni heroics, but without key injuries to Pune's 4 international stars I think Punjab would have been cut adrift before a last game showdown.

top 4 confirmed, RCB certainly the form team. I'd like to see them cope with having to set a target and defend it against a strong batting line-up like Gujarat before I could state they are massive favourites, I still feel they need to chase to be at their most dangerous.

3 v 4 sees the 2 best bowling attacks in KKR v Sunriers, so will be interesting to ee how it all plays out.

i think the lions are way overpriced today,we have rcb who have a formidable batting line up when firing on all cylinders but a big problem with their bowling attack and the lions who have a balanced team strong in batting and bowling alot of todays game will depend on how long kohli is at the crease ok gayle can score a few but hasnt been hitting the mark in this tourney and of course ab who if fires can take the game away in a few overs ,alot of ifs though and the lions bowling attack matters alot in todays game if the lions take 2 of the rcb order out within the first 8 overs today they could win this game,id rate this at 4/5 rcb EVENS lions if i was pricing it up i really do think the bookies have priced on rcbs top 3 performance and not team,they go in the first 8 lions win.

I was considering backing Gujarat at 3.3 for the IPL outright and trading out on Betfair when/if they won today.

Wouldn\'t the hedge of the 2 outsiders be the best play? I can\'t see them being bigger than 2/1 starting the final.

Format's a bit different for the IPL, it isn't just straight semis mate!

1st plays 2nd today with the winner in the final.

3rd plays 4th tomorrow with the winner of that playing the loser of todays game to reach the final
