How to lose a T20 match - the KKR way

Just go out and Play

Chase and Choke in a T20 match – the MI way

1. While Chasing make the most innocuous score look absolutely insurmountable

2. Pick an extra bowler, If he takes a wicket pull him out of the attack

3. Economical bowlers should only bowl the last over

4. Shuffle a successful batting order

5. Good batsmen should bat down the order, lest they might make some runs

6. When you require 8 runs per over, try some defensive strokes

7. When you require 6 of 9 balls – go for the big hits

8. Demote hard hitters, promote unknown faces

9. Play the first 10 overs like a 5 day match, let the pressure build, then lose wickets

10. If still you are close to victory – Choke

Written out of sheer frustration after MI VS RR T20 match (May 14th 2009)
