Hi Guys,

Its Gr8 finals of DLF IPL 2009… 

What a month this has been, every day action , thrill and nothing more u could expect.  Every evening v had a treat to enjoy. Every cricket fan would have enjoyed the past 38 days…

IPL 2 Finals:

Royal Challengers Bangalore Vs Deccan Chargers

First a word on both teams, Last year these two teams bagged the position of 7th and 8th respectively. Just a turnaround fortune’s (guess i cant say that) this year as of  now  they are into finals, eliminating, the top two teams who  lead the standings table for most of the times (Delhi and Chennai).

Finally its time for finals, and two captains came together for toss and Kumble won the toss and decided to continue his successful chasing record, Gilly wasn’t worried much abt losing toss, he pointed that he would like to score 160 to 170 to put pressure on the opposition.

Kumble himself started the proceedings for Challengers, and what a way to start, they had Gilly the dangerous man right in the very first over for a duck… Skipper undoing a Skipper… What a way to start the things for RCB, later suman also fell, feeling the pressure… Later Symonds had few shots punching inside and outside the ground, but all those were like daggers in the heart of Rahul dravid, has he dropped a sitter in slips when he was in 5,  finally he went on to make 33, but it needed lion hearted kumble to pick the batsmen again, captain leading from the front. at 10 overs timing, they were just 62/3…. RCB felt really good in the score.. Both Gibbs and Rohit began the second off the deccans innings with caution and started milking the singles and doubles by picking the gaps,  Finally sharma broke the shatters and slashed one over the ropes, but he was very soon done by the Kumble’s brilliant bowling effort, two balls later venugopal also fell for Jumbo’s magic… On the other hand, Gibbs went slow and steady and scored his 4th IPL 50, a timely knock from the player who opened the innings and stayed till the end… Its always good see any one of the opener fails, other compensating for the loss… Finally few hard running between giibs and Harris allowed DC to reach a par score of 143/6 in 20 overs.

Bowling, RCB bowlers are pretty happy and felt they did the job, and absolutely they have did the job, and its batsmen to get those runs… 

 

finals

Kallis and Manish Pandey started the innings for RCB,  Harries started well with a another first over maiden (remember he also a bowled a first over two wicket maiden in semi finals.). Kallis went for few good looking shot, but its purple cap holder, who took the revenge by pitching one shot and Kallis mishitting to stumps. Later Van de merwe, really eased the nerves of RCB as he pulled, drove and took the bowlers to some vicious shots, but not before foxed by Ojha, who also removed Manish pandey cheaply for just 4. by 10 overs time, RCB are 69/3 with dravid and taylor in crease, RCB felt they have a certain chance of winning, even if these two cary for another 5 overs, but it didnt happen, as dravid went for an expensive paddle shot and finally losing the stumps to harmeet singh, But taylor didnt give up as he pulled Ojha for a six and brought the run rate down, but It the over os symonds which changed the whole course of the game, which had a Ross mistiming his pull and very next ball, Virat Kohli losing his balance in crease and Gilly isn’t a person who could miss those… Double strike left RCB speechless and optionless as the runrate was also creeping slowly to 12 and above…  Boucher and Praveen fell very soon then but Uthappa and Vinay kumar holded for few mins and gave a hope for RCB that they could make it… But its the purple cap owner, who came to the occasion and bowled a very tidy last over to all DC to win by 6 runs in the END….
