Needless to say, there will be more interest than there was at the start of the event with two Indian teams playing the final. What is more important though is that it's tough to guess the winner. RCB hit their way out of the bottom of the heap through some brute work with the bat, blunting even the edge NSW Blues had through David Warner's fireworks. But playing against the Mumbai Indians will be a challenge.

Yet, RCB know they can hit MI at the top as batting has been the weak link for the Harbhajan Singh-led side. MI have a weapon that can hurt RCB — Lasith Malinga, ably supported by Harbhajan, Kieron Pollard and others.
