It's a shame that they've taken the IPL off freeview TV here, now there's no cricket on to help me procrastinate at uni! I'm a KKR fan, and chuffed with our decent start, I wasn't too sure what to expect with the doubts over how good Narine would now be.

IPL hotting up, beginning to look like the top 5 are clear and 4 will go through but you can't rule out a squad of Bangalore's quality, two wins in their games in hand over Mumbai and they're back in the mix. No stand out team from what I've seen/heard, so it should be an exciting next few weeks!

What a way to reinforce my point about RCB having too strong a squad to be ruled out! Incredible! Kohli now has 3 hundreds this IPL season. 20 sixes were hit in the RCB innings, don't know what the record is but that's insane... And then 4-11 from Chris Jordan (1 of 9 bowlers used) to give RCB a 144 run win, the biggest in IPL history.

Largest IPL win (and 5th largest ever) 2nd most sixes in any t20 game (1 off their own record) 2nd ever instance of 2 hundreds in a t20 innings (Gloucestershire are the other team) 2nd largest IPL total (again, their own record) Most bowlers in an IPL innings (joint most overall) Highest partnership for any wicket in any t20 game (229), Kohli and de Villiers breaking their own record Highest score at fall of 2nd wicket

Just a 10th half century of the season for Kohli now... Unbelievable form in a format where it's hard to be consistent! He's made 17 (in 26 inns) in 2016, beating Gayle's record of 16 for a calendar year. RCB almost certain to complete their great run to the playoffs with 4 wins from 4
Bit late, but I'm nominally supporting the Rising Pun Supergiants this Ipple. Because they've got a stupid name that I can make lots of Punes on.
De facto I won't care, of course, and will resent it for taking over England Cricinfo page space at the expense of the CC. Very few zero-sum games in life. But yay, Rising Damp Supergiants won their first game!
I'm a KKR fan, so very happy to see them chase down 184. Not only that, but to do it with 5 overs to spare and without losing a wicket... phenomenal!! The two English players having a dodgy game but nevertheless very happy with that
Balladeer: Happy new year and Christmas and all that to all. (Sorry - again, I mostly browse on mobile, so didn't see your earlier wishes!)

pierredelafranchesca: Gale and Pyrah to support Lions as coaches.....OK, i mean Gale has been shit for Yorks and is potentially neck deep in this racism case, but sure why not. In fact, keep the useless prick.

Balladeer: Definitely needed to be a thread. I came up with one of the same answers as you because I can't see the chatbox on mobile.
