IPL 6: Day 21–Gayle’s Day in record books & Harmeet Singh also won MOM…

Double header on a Tuesday, Not many would want it, Unless they are willing to see the fireworks of Chris Gayle.

First Game, Had one name to be written, Just CHRIS GAYLE… One man literally played against 11 Pune players and won the game hands down. Records kept tumbling as Gayle kept swinging his bat (all those tumbled records are listed below). Ballistic Gayle went on to score 175 runs in 66 balls, which had 13 fours, 17 sixes & 18 dot balls. Other played the second fiddle around him, RCB ended with the highest T20 score 263/5 in 20 overs. PWI played their 20 overs trying to reduce their deficit of defeat, and ended up scoring 133 runs, leaving them just sort of 130 runs from the target. A point to note, Gayle also picked 2 wickets in the only over he bowled.

Royal Challengers Bangalore won the match by 130 runs…

Second Game, After having a Power packed, you can’t eclipse the effort of calypso,  So it was always a dull game, where people relived the moments of glory of Chris Gayle and in between there was a match between Delhi & Punjab. Delhi batted first, back to square one as they were in the tournament till the last game, lost wickets to poor shots and poor batting efforts to sum Delhi’s score of 120 in good batting track. KXIP started off the chase in a flyer and kept the chase going even though wickets are falling every now & then. But in the end they chased it with 3 full overs to spare.

Kings XI Punjab won the match by 5 wickets with 18 balls to spare…

IPL 4: DAY 16 Review…

April 23, 2011 at 11:55 pm (Cricket, IPL, IPL 2011, IPL 4) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi Guys,

Surprised just one game on a Saturday evening, But i am sure none was disappointed has we had a run fest in Delhi.

Languishing in the bottom of the table Delhi certainly needed something spl to bring their sprits up and it was the day, Gilly won the coin and felt something is there for bowlers and went for chase and it did show how well they misread the pitch. Shewag and Warner amazed 146 for first wicket, before Shewag wanted 6 sixes in an over got caught in long on. Warner, Venugopal Rao, Ojha, all did their part to get Delhi to their highest ever total in IPL so far. 231/4 in 20 overs, Chasing almost 2 runs a ball right from the start is very tough but Punjab was in no mood to give up, as Gilly and Marsh kept going and found the crowd profusely, esp the latter. As said, it wasn’t easy though KXIP came very close to that, by reaching 202/6 in 20 overs, not a bad chase though. Finally Delhi will have a reason to smile after losing three games on a trot, still they are right in the bottom but not by much. Very soon this table will turn on its head. Watch out guys. Delhi won the game by 29 runs.
