Hi all…

Its a Double header Sunday and day no. 30 in IPL 2.

Match 49:

Kings XI Punjab Vs Deccan Chargers

Pretty Important game for Both the teams and esp a must win for KXIP. Gilly won the toss and decided to field first, back to pitch within 12 hours of last game, where they won a classical thriller in last over heroic by Rohit Sharma. Start wan’t so gr8 for KXIP before powerplay cud finish three batsmen are back to pavilion and Yuvi stuck there for a while before he was out to a brilliant arm ball by Venugopal. Sangakarra held the innings together for KXIP in the live wire with few others revolving around him and made a well deserved 56 runs. Rest didn’t make much an impression. Bowling was pretty good and RP Singh claimed back the purple cap, its been a heavy Tug of war for Purple cap, But Orange is so Safe with just one man Hayden.

match 49

Deccans started of in typical blistering fashion, courtesy Gilly, but couldn’t continue for long as he perished when try to take Powar for a maximum, Suman came back in the very next ball, Then its left to Gibbs and Symonds to steady the things and they did pretty well and things were getting out of the hands of KXIP. All of a sudden Skipper pulled a rabbit out the hat from no where, I mean he picked an Hat Trick man…. Man O Man!!! Believe what a season yuvi is having with the ball this is second Hat trick in this IPL Season. All of a sudden panic in Deccan’s and nothing seems to go their way, and KXIP grabbed the opportunity. But One man didn’t give up for DC’s its rohit sharma, who try to create the magic of last nite again, with few exotic shots and pulled the game back to deccan’s from no where. But all of a sudden he was out when needing 4 to win the last 3 balls, and unfortunately deccan tailenders wasn’t capable enough of doing that. They cud have had a shy chance, when they need four of last ball, they cud have ran 3 to get into a tie (bcos they had the chance, due to brett lee’s misfield), but Ryan harris wasn’t even looking back his partner who almost came to the other end. But Nothing to say now, Its KXIP still Fighting hard for their place with a 1 run victory over deccan’s.

Match 50:

Delhi Daredevils Vs Rajasthan Royals

A very much important game for Royals and formality game for Delhi daredevils. Shewag won the toss and decided to bat first, as usual u see, Royal bowlers chipped in with early wickets, this time munaf doing the double trick on the openers (Shewag and Gambhir) (its been a sorry tournament for the gr8 opening pair of India).  then its show of Dilshan  and AB de villers, and they did their work brilliantly. Dilshan was kept much quiet by Rajsthan bowlers, by giving him no width to free his arms and swing around. finally he got himself out in 17th over for 33 runs. on the ther end, De villers scored a another half century of this season, and few fireworks from karthik took them to 150 in their 20 overs.  Botha and Munaf bowled well to pick the wickets , Munaf was too good just before he bowled that disastrous 25 runs last over. 

match 50

Looking to chase a score of 151, royals to need to get a good start, but it didn’t happen as both the openers walked back so quickly and Ojha gone as he tried to get some runs, later Jadeja and Botha tried to consolidate the innings but, they weren’t able to accelerate the innings, which proved to lathal in the end, as run rate drept around 10 an over, its always difficult and that  too when u lose Yusuf pathan for just 1 run of 5 balls. Its all over for them, Munaf in the end provided few entertaining knocks for a batsmen at no.11. Bowling Nehra was agian too good, man he is gonna be the key watch out for this man.  bowled his 3 overs for just 8 and picked up a wicket.  Amit mishra picked up 3 crucial wickets too… In the whole Delhi had a good game and royals didn’t.  Which means now Rajasthan has to pray god, that luck favors them to make themselves in the Semi finals.
