Been a gap in the IPL updates, heavy travel, troubled heath kept me away from the updates for a while. Happy to be back…

A very important game for Sunrisers to keep them in the hunt of Playoff’s position. Cameron white won the toss and decided to Bat first, and he would have thought a dreadful start even in dreams as SRH lost Dhawan, Parthiv & Cameron White for just 5 on the board. Vihari along with Samantray steadied a bit, before going for a skier. Sammy joined Samantray and scored very important 56 runs between them, Late strike from Perara made sure Sunrisers scored 136/9 in 20 overs. Bowling star was Faulkner who picked up his second 5 wickets haul against Sunrisers for the second time for this season. Chasing 130+ was never easy in the Hyderabad pitch and it proved to be again. Dravid had a good opening but apart from him everyone else struggled in the pitch. No one from Rajasthan got going, last minute rush from Kevon Cooper made sure Royals didn’t lose it big. In end Royals were strangled at 113/9 in 20 overs.  A Spell of 4-0-8-2 from Amit Mishra which proved too much for Royals in the end.

Sun Risers Hyderabad won the match by 23 runs… 

Standings as on DAY 45:


This win means RCB have to win their game tomorrow against CSK to stay in the tournament, if they lose its curtains. With this win Sunrisers also knocked mathematical chance of KXIP for qualifying.

No Price for guessing, and its Malinga’s five which fetched of the man of the match award. Mumbai Indians will be pretty happy in retaining Malinga.

Match 5:
Kings XI Punjab Vs Pune Warriors

Pune Warriors made a memorable debut in IPL, with their skipper Yuvaraj Singh being in the form of his lifetime. KXIP’s new deputy Gilchrist, made misjudgement of the pitch and decided to Bat first in a pitch that offered all kind of help to bowlers, KXIP bundled themselves to 112, Thanks to last minute addition Ryan Mclaren, who waged the lone battle to reach this long. Bowling was obviously good, which kept them under 6 an over.

KXIP 112/8 in 20 overs.
