Who were favorites as on 1st ball bowled?: Mumbai with 59p on BetFair.

PunterPolls: Should have been a pretty straight forward one-sided match but now a days Mumbai being the one of the team who is converting easy matches to tuff wons.

Kolkata didn't get a good start but able to score 147 with the superb knock from tenDoeschate, who scored 70 not out on 49 balls.

Sachin and Blizzard gave a very good start to Mumbai and at the end of 8th over Betfair was showing only Laying ODDS for Mumbai. Immediate after strategic time-out Mumbai Indians had lost there way and started loosing wickets. Their were time when Mumbai Back ODDs went up to 31p on betfair.

Overall a very good match and as you can see, 61.54% Punters had supported supported Mumbai Indians. Best of luck to MI for coming matches and I wish that MI should play the final against Chennai on 28th and should win the title.

Result: Mumbai won
Who were favorites as on 1st ball bowled?: Mumbai Indians with 60p on BetFair

PunterPolls: Last ball decider and we loved it to see that the team supported by 80% of the Punters here have won.

It was really super sunday, Kallis and Yusuf had played some very good shots to set of total of 175. Mumbai Indians didn't start very well, but still fighting when Tendulkar and Bhajji on crease. As soon as Tendulkar got out it was more or less confirmed that MI is going to loose the match. But it was last over, Franklin played supershots 4 consecutive fours to Balaji.

At the very last ball MI required 4 to win and as everybody thinks in their dreams that our team should win this kind of matches by hitting six on the last ball, Rydu is the man who truned that to reality.

Mumbai Indians teammates got mad with that fantastic shot and why not they this is called the magic of cricket and the thriller of IPL.

Perfect ending of IPL league matches, the way it started and common between both the occasion was KKR.

Who were favorites as on 1st ball bowled?: Mumbai with 52p on BetFair
PunterPolls: According to PunterPolls editor, Mumbai is the only team who used to take pressure before the match starts. Mumbai had never performed under pressure, This was one of the oppurtunity for MI to secure its place in final four but because of some every good bowling and tremendous inning of Shane Watson, RR have won quite comfortably.

MI now have now must win situation of its last match against KKR.

Mumbai v Deccan, 14th May


Status: Closed
Result: Deccan wins
Who were favorites as on 1st ball bowled?: Mumbai with 53p on BetFair

PunterPolls: This was seems to be one sided affair for Mumbai Indians as they were on the roll till the 19th of Deccan innings. In the 20th over Amit mishra did some hitting and help Deccan to get worth fighting total of 135.

MI were 5p fav, to win the match when they started batting with their big line-up to chase relatively a small total of the IPL. But Deccan's had other plans and IPL is a tournament where teams out of the tournament can create upsets. Dummny's impressive short spell, Ishant and Anand ranjan superb bowling made this small total impossible to chase for MI.

I must say...What a match?
