PunterPolls Prediction

We are very much disappointed with the Sunrisers field placement against the MI at their home ground. That was the contest which they deserve to win but they simply went against the all odds. Sunrisers bowlers are not doing their job, they are playing lazy cricket to be very frank. We are not also impressed with Shikhar Dhawan's captaincy, he is too predictable and too nvoice.

Today's we are supporting Kolkata Knight Riders. More or less we are following a strategy to go with the flow, and KKR doing reasonably well. Their problem was their batting, which been improved by captain's few short knocks and by other experience campaigner in their side.

But you should be on-line and keep an eye on our comments section of this page or Punters Wall.
