"Orange thoppi Anna" (like my mum said) did it for us again. What a match! When Albie Morkel took the first wicket of Dwayne Bravo, I was like yay!! When Jayasuriya got out, we got more hyper. Then, CSK sort of lost the plot and Duminy(He is SUCH a cutie I say! When the bowler does his run-up, his eyes become all wide and his face screwed up in concentration!! AAH!) showed some fireworks at the end. Target - 149!
Definitely not Mission Impossible. But Kutti(or Parthiv Patel) first-ball duck. Less than 60 runs in the first 10 overs... er... I admit, I did change channels after a point of time. I only started watching after the 15th over, when the target looked gettable. And just when the score board read '27 runs from 18 balls', who comes in but the famous slapper(?!) Bhajji! Singh really proved to be the king for us, and after his lovely over, the score card tilted to our favour...and the rest as they say, is history. Dhoni hit the ball for a four to get the winning runs and yay!! We are into the semi-finals!! 'Aamchi Mumbai'-kars are going back home!!!

Adi adi adi adi nethi adi
