All the England players involved so far seem to be doing ok.

nac1001 - 10 Apr 2021 15:52:20 (#2 of 136)

Moeen ends 66W

Out for 36 off 24

Onegin - 10 Apr 2021 15:53:56 (#3 of 136)

CSK v Delhi today. Curran v Curran. Woakes opened the bowling (very good so far) and Moeen 36 from 24

Onegin - 10 Apr 2021 15:57:33 (#4 of 136)

I have bought the Sky sports NOW TV package for this. The sheer number of stars here makes it well worthwhile. I mean Glen Maxwell and Virat batting together yesterday!

nac1001 - 10 Apr 2021 17:01:15 (#5 of 136)

S Curran b Woakes 34 (15 balls)

Onegin - 10 Apr 2021 17:02:17 (#6 of 136)

That included about 20-odd off his brother in one over. DC chasing 189.

Onegin - 10 Apr 2021 17:47:59 (#7 of 136)

99-0 after 10. Mo bowling some rubbish.

How is it working this year? Are the teams based at specific stadia, or are they travelling about?

lammaMia - 11 Apr 2021 14:16:31 (#9 of 136)

Teams are either based in Mumbai or Chennai for now. They would have to travel at some point.

Sunrisers (Warner, YJB) v KKR (Cpt Morgan) just beginning.

fogger - 11 Apr 2021 15:56:20 (#11 of 136)

Why is he called YJB?

Onegin - 11 Apr 2021 16:40:17 (#12 of 136)

I think it stems from commentators always calling him "Young Jonny Bairstow" for years.

Pundits reckoned 150/160 would be a good score. KKR have posted 187 (Morgan only managing 2)

nac1001 - 11 Apr 2021 18:23:20 (#13 of 136)

YJB 55 off 40

nac1001 - 11 Apr 2021 18:24:05 (#14 of 136)

38 needed off 14 balls

cozzer - 11 Apr 2021 23:50:09 (#15 of 136)

Pundits reckoned 150/160 would be a good score. KKR have posted 187

They won by 10 runs, so the pundits were right that it was over par.

kalva44 - 12 Apr 2021 08:44:00 (#16 of 136)

I always thought it was Yorkshire’s Johnny Bairstow

cozzer - 12 Apr 2021 15:57:44 (#17 of 136)

The Universe Boss scored 40 off 28 balls, and only 28 in boundaries, so he must have had to run 12 runs.

Rajasthan have already used 8 bowlers in 13 overs. It's something I've seen briefly mentioned before, but never really discussed in depth. If you rarely use more than, say, 5 batsmen (or if number 6 onward is never in early enough to make a meaningful contribution), the traditional balance of a side is redundant. It makes more sense to have more bowlers, because if they need to bat you haven't made enough runs anyway.

When did they stop being Kings XI Punjab? I just thought it was a strange quirk on the BBC site calling the Punjab Kings, or there was some rights issue regarding the name and the coverage on the BBC. But it seems like that's their name now.

Onegin - 12 Apr 2021 17:08:45 (#20 of 136)

Name change this season. I think they just change the franchise names quite frequently. Delhi Capitals are now Delhi Capital Pacers.

222 from Punjab is going to take some chasing. Deepak Hooda hit 64 off 28.

Looking forward to seeing Riley Meredith bowl - he always looks great in the BBL
