    Well played Tanongsak. I thought he was tired in the middle there at one point. So it's 4-0 to Hyderabad now :D

    I'm expecting Pune to win the final game but Hyderabad will top the table now :)

    Not convinced the lady has an appendix scar. It looks very horizontal and not quite long enough. I think a surgeon would be more than a bit embarrassed to have an appendix scar like that.

    In that photo not as much but on the stream I have seen it and it looks identical to the appendix scar my friend has horizontal too(done in childhood now adult). But of course I could be wrong:)

    Obviously he wuldnt be expected to not endorse IBL, but he could have shyed away from saying better than China open...
    ofcourse the 6 months and 3 weeks difference is a huge factor for a player, you are done with it in no time comparatively...

    I thought that was a weird comparison but after reading he compared it to the CBL not china open.

    Should be an interesting match today.
    Mumbai v Delhi
    Hope Delhi don't do the, I will play Darren Liew as MS2 cheat. If they don't I can see all singles possibly going to Mumbai. If one of the single get beat I think it will be incredibly tight tie.

    Cheat, gamble or tactic....?
    What if Mumbai says LCW is tere MS2? ;)
    If they are submitting a list of players beforehand, it should be upto them to rank whoever is there MS1 & MS2 player... the other team has the right to rank their players according to what they think.

    It doesnt makes a sense for the team to play its best player in an already lost match :)
    Frankly I think this should be the tournament format and they should decide if such gamble is allowed or not.

    I understand your logic. But it fly's in the face of the fact of a men's singles 1 and 2. It ruins the integrity of the tournament. In fact it almost renders it pointless to get such players like LCW involved so I think it is counter productive for IBL. It's also confusing for the audience and the press as we have found out. Everybody now thinks Ivanov as a premium singles player over Zwiebler which ain't fair to him. By all means rest players if it is a point gone give young Indian player a chance against him but don't switch them.

    I can understand different styles beat different people so it should not go on WR alone but swapping folk in the top 15 for people over 40 WR makes it silly.

    Forgive me if I am wrong but I am sure CBL grade players into different sections so you can only pit them against one and other. I think IBL should adopt the same for MS. So for example grade them A,B,C
    A being 1-15 WR
    B being 15-30 WR
    C being over 30 WR

    If you don't have an A to match an A you have to play a B against the A not a C and so on.:)
