Chintan N Parek: "@Vignesh: Was looking for you, finally someone criticising the captain of the season."

raghu: "Brathwaite.. Hero to Villian.."

Rashid's hurt his shoulder, I think. Physio's working on him beyond the boundary

Vignesh R: "Poor captaincy, Carlos is a part timer. He shouldn't be bowling the 18th over. He should have planned differently else could have used Bhuvi for 18th and Kaul for 19th. And use Sandeep for last over "

Naman: "@Shashank, maybe their bowlers get a little complacent when they have to defend a big target. "

Ruth Vick: "Dhawan has been solid in the slips for SRH all season. With all the issues the Indian national team has with slip catching, why not keep Dhawan and Rahane, your two best slip catchers there all the time?"

Shashank Aswath: "SRH has the most curious bowlers. They seem to be at home defending less than 150, but all at sea defending above 170. They've lost both times their batsman have posted more than 170."

K Shankar: "MSD astuteness as captain is questionable in this game. first Rayudu should have opened and Watson two down. Next he forgets the Rashid googly factor and goes tuk tuk instead of getting the spinner off his stride and should have used footwork and lofted the spinner rather than play from the crease. Third having lost top batsmen he should have come much later even after BRAVO and Jadeja who must have been instructed to be aggressive. Now the ONLY hope is for the SA captain Far to play his best "

Pratik Bedia: "Tuk Tuk Dhoni? CSK have lost 3 in-form batsmen! You expect him to go hammer and tongs?" --- Fair enough but 0 off 8 balls is just tuk-tuking

"When you are defending a low total, the key is, all bowlers need to be on the same page: either you go for wickets or you contain the run rate. Either option could work. If you go for wickets, you could contain the run rate, or you could get wickets by containing the run rate." Nagraj Gollapudi interviewed Bhuvneshwar earlier this season
