BRC cruise into finals:

What a team! Same team was called an 'old vagon' last year and is now ruling the IPL this year.The technique shows up on the tricky wickets like in South Africa.Last year, in India, the pitches were so flat and dead that even some Asnodkar would hit McGrath for boundaries.No wonder those T20 specialists are failing in this season.Remember, form is temporary, but class is permanent! (I know this phrase has been used million times, but still it's good because it conveys the message perfectly).
Yesterday, Rahul proved it yet again that slogging every ball is not necessary in T20s.He hit 6 boundaries including a superb straight drive off Jakati.Excluding 1 slog sweep (which would have gone for a six), all of his shots were technically perfect and gave an indication of why this guy is called Mr.Dependable.Most important thing which he did was that he protected Manish Pandey from Murali.Murali, who snatched a win against KP single handedly, was looking dangerous.But even the spin-hero could not break down the Wall.The partnership between Pandey and Rahul proved to be a killer blow for CSK.
The final would be a thriller for sure.Good luck BRC!
