Hi Guys,

Match 67, Gilly need to win 5 games out of 5 to in the playoff’s he crossed 4 successfully and he needed just one more to go past for the playoff’s. He won the toss and decided to field first, idea should have been to dismiss Deccan’s cheaply and score the run in quick pace to up the run rate. But what happened was quite opposite as DC’s found form in no time to pull KXIP in the back foot. To say they got themselves to blame, as they even dropped the sitters, not once or twice, almost five catches were put down in their innings and i didn’t count the missed run out chances. Dhawan rode on luck to get to his first half century, well supported by Ravi Teja. Finally Deccan’s finished with 198/2 in 20 overs, their ever highest against KXIP in all seasons. Must win situation, 10 runs required per over, u expect a fight back from the home team, having put in the blood and sweat to win the other 4 games, but it wasn’t the case again as KXIP batsmen showed no responsibility apart from Gilly, who scored his 9th IPL fifty, just before departing. Amit Mishra a happy bowler who picked up the first Hattrick of the season to delight Deccan’s. As KXIP bowled out for 116 in 19 overs. Deccan’s won the match y 82 runs, their highest ever winning margin in IPL so far.

Match 68, Dada’s last match for this season, apart from 32 and 18, he was also a victim of duck. so he has the last chance to say what he his. But Rain god’s seems to have no idea in watching this dead rubber, so ruled out the match when Delhi were 56/3 in 10 overs. So Sorry Dada, May be next season u can show off more…

Hi Guys,

Another single game day, thankfully too, i had to blog abt the yesterday’s one too, so bit less work to do… What to do yaar, Month end works catching up….

Another close game, thanks to Warner and Hopes, Delhi looked like they got some kind of curse, they can’t even win now in their home pitches. With Hopes getting his fifty Delhi lurked beyond 160, with late lusty blows from 1.9Mn Irfan. Gayle and Kohli looked to finish the game and get ready for the party as they went abt 10 to 12 runs per over. Few poor shot, excellent fielding all seems to have pulled back the game for Delhi, but it wasn’t so, as Skipper Vettori and Syed got RCB past the winning run with 3 wickets in hand, Which delighted the owner Sid Mallya who shared with his lady love Deepika Padukone with a gapless HUG….

Standings as on DAY 19:


Interesting facts on DAY 19:

– Dilshan became the second player after Gomez (KTK) to get second duck in IPL 4.

– James Hopes became the first batsmen to be out in a NO-Ball which was referred to third umpire in IPL, and eventually getting the reprieve, Abimanyu Mithun was in the receiving end. Sachin came close for this instance in the last game but some controversy got him back to pavilion.
