To be honest, I thought Irfan Pathan was their last real chance to get them to 150 or thereabouts. Sure, Sangakkara's wicket was a big one, but Irfan and Brett Lee can do some hitting.
That's not to say they won't win or that 150 is the magic number, but it was a fairly good number. Kings XI don't really seem to be all that desperate to stay in the competition. I actually wanted them to win this one.
And how are Deccan up and about so soon after their last match?
I'm also freaked out about the blatant innuendo in an ad for drag racing on ONE. It basically goes along the lines of a woman in a sultry voice purring "This is the only time you'll be rewarded for finishing under 10 seconds" before she goes on to speak of "hulking metal" and other such supposedly titillating things. Lovely. It's even better than ONE going out of their way to promote netball as a contact sport ("Who says netball isn't a contact sport?" Cue footage of netballer being knocked over). Well, everybody, actually. Because netball isn't a contact sport and it's no use pretending it is just to rope in more viewers.
