Mumbai Indians have not been able to plan their batting strategy in a proper manner. With Rohit Sharma moving down the order, he is mostly busy in reconstructing the innings rather than creating a solid start up front. On several occasions in IPL-8, the lower order has lifted Mumbai out of troubled starts. Harbhajan, Corey […]

Sometimes matches that are marred by rains, become unfavorable to the side batting second after the Duckworth-Lewis readjustment.

Put into bat first, SRH made a solid start with a 130-run opening stand, dominated by […]

Any IPL team playing against Royal Challengers Bangalore can come good if they take out Chris Gayle early. The cheap dismissal of the giant West Indian offers the opponents a huge psychological advantage because the guy is capable of wreaking havoc, when he is well-settled.
