    Smart franchise. Thay have got murali as well. If only they had added sanath it would be a cup winning squad.

    I doubt if Mahela can satisfy the demands of leading a high powered IPL franchise.

    Good choice. Mahela will deliver the goods. The man behind cochin Sashi Tarror is a smart man anyway.
