Bangalore Challengers and Punjab Kings register wins.

Bangalore was somehow able to defeat Deccan team. Defending 156 was not easy but solid bowling by Kallis and P Kumar clinched them a thriller. I was very much impressed by P Kumar who bowled some beauties around the wicket and got wickets of Afridi (great catch by Steyn) and Laxman. Bangalore has to score more runs if they have to stay in contention. Their batting lineup consists of slow batsman and lack the killer instincts sometimes. Deccan team is not able to find the right combinations at the righ moment. Need to change the leadership of Laxman.

Punjab on the otherhand are on a roll. Pathan and Sreesanth bowled really well. Beating Kolkata KR was not easy but coule of early wickets did the trick. Kolkata has a good team but need their batting to fire, specially Dada. He should stay till the end and anchor the innings. SRK must be really unhappy with his team's performance. But filmy dialogues like "he wants to win everything" is not cricket reality, he should understand.
