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 40 Review…

May 18, 2011 at 12:58 am (Cricket, IPL, IPL 2011, IPL 4) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi Guys,

Match 63, To summarize in one word – Adam Gilchrist. That’s all i got to say as one man decimated a team which won 7 games in a row. After winning the toss Gilly decided to bat first, after 6 overs, KXIP were 30 odd runs after losing Valthaty. this is the time one of the world’s most destructive batsmen found his best form. Gilchrist blazed away the RCB bowlers all over the Dharmasala stadium, on one occasion he went for the mountain which went 122 meters long. Shaun Marsh also joined the party along with Gilly as both played some kind of PS2 cricket as they smashed ball after ball. Gilly finally scored his 2nd IPL century, and Marsh was not out for 79. KXIP ended with the tournament’s best score of 232/2. One of the best start needed for RCB if they have extend their winning streak, but it did happen opposite as Gayle played a maiden before getting out for a duck. From then on few played shots then and there but nothing seems to match the run rate as it was always in the Dharmasala mountains. Far away to the reach for any team. Finally KXIP bowled out RCB for the first time in this season and winning the match by 111 runs.

Hi Guys,

Match 52, Almost like an quarterfinals, Both CSK and Royals who ever takes this game is almost certain to make it to the final four, even if they lose their following games. What’s spl about champions, They come good when it matters, of course it was the day for CSK, as out of form Murali Vijay came back to form and looked beyond his fifty, but blame goes to lazy running as he lost by inches, Late surge from Dhoni & co took Chennai to 196/3 in 20 overs. Chasing almost 10 runs an over right from the word go wasn’t easy for any team, esp if u face someone like Bollinger, Morkel and Ashwin. And its too much for Royals as they kept losing the important wickets at the wrong times, Rahane was the only man who showed some resistance, who also picked up his fifty, But it wasn’t enough as Royals were bowled out for 133 with 3 balls remaining. CSK won the match by 63 runs. This win not only give CSK the most needed 2 points but net run rate sore past KKR to go up SPOT 2…
