IPL 6: Day 46–Azhar’s Heroics & Kohli’s Aggression for the day…

May 19, 2013 at 1:05 am (Cricket, IPL, IPL 2013, IPL 6) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi…

Game 1, Last game in cricket field for the Australian Wicket keeping legend Gilchrist. Rohit won the toss and decided to field first, Both the openers didn’t make a big impression as they departed with 6 on the board. It was left to Azhar Mahmood & Marsh to take the KXIP into safety, which they both did perfectly with timed aggression with a partnership of 148 runs. Later scoring 80 of 44 balls and Marsh got 63 from 47 balls. Manan Vohra late 20 made sure KXIP scored 183 in 20 overs. Mumbai was totally out of form today, no one looked to get going at any point and credit also goes to KXIP bowlers who kept Mumbai always in the bay. However best part is when Gilly bowled the last over for the first time in his cricketing career and picked wicket in the very first ball. Later followed the Gilly’s own version of Gagnam style to end the veteran’s cricketing career.

Kings XI Punjab won the match by 50 runs…

Game 2, Just time pass for the crowd should we call it, rain curtailed match and 8 overs per side. Tailor made situation for players like Gayle, Kohli & ABD. RCB in a do or die situation came really good with skipper leading from the front scoring a quick fifty. Few skiers from Gayle in the middle overs made sure to get mammoth 106/2 in 8 overs. CSK never got into chase, late strike from Dhoni & Vijay made sure CSK scored 82 runs. RCB won a very important game and now they will be hoping KKR to win the game against SRH tomorrow and make way for RCB to playoff’s.

Royal Challengers Bangalore won the match by 24 runs…

IPL 6: Day 37–Cooper’s Slower delivery & Gambhir’s late fifty highlights the day…

May 10, 2013 at 12:37 am (Cricket, IPL, IPL 2013, IPL 6) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi…

A very important game for three side to be in playoff’s on a double header day.

Game 1, KXIP took on Royals, both needing a win, especially KXIP. Dravid won the coin and decided to field first as he always wanted to be. KXIP lost Mandeep Singh in the very first over, which meant Skipper Gilly who is back in the side has to put down his natural game and has to consolidate with his country man Marsh. That’s what happened as both put on a century stand but in 13 overs, not very much likely for a destructive pair. None other than these were worth mentioning as KXIP ended less than par score of 145/6 in 20 overs. Cooper picked a 3/23 in 4 overs. Dravid went early with just 5 runs on the board, But Rahane & Watson continued their good form to build a platform of 66 runs between which allowed Sanju samson along with Rahane to finish the match with an over to spare. This win also means Royals are almost into playoff, provided some one doesn’t play a bluff.

Rajasthan Royals won the match 8 wickets with 6 balls to spare…

Game 2, KKR needed a win just to keep their mathematical hope alive as KXIP lost the previous match. Skipper Gambhir finally played a more sensible innings along with Ten Doeschate to keep KKR scoreboard moving Late strike from Bhatia & Tiwary made sure KKR crossed 150, as they ended 152/6 in 20 overs.As usual Pune continued to display a poor & pathetic performance with bat. Uthappa & Mathews scored couple of 30’s apart from that nothing to highlight in the Pune’s batting card.

Kolkata Knight Riders won the match by 46 runs…

Game 51, Hussey won the toss and decided to field first, As usual RCB stated with Gayle Assault to add up to it, this time Che Pujara also got a chance to get a fifty. As always for RCB, ABD finished the innings in a blistering fashion to end up with more than par score of 190/3 in 20 overs. KXIP didn’t have a start they were expecting losing Shaun Marsh early and followed both Mandeep & Gurkreet Singh. Skipper also left with out making any big impact in the stroke of 10th over with scorecard read 64/4, needing 127 in 60 balls. Till 13th over game was well and truly with RCB as KXIP was trailing by 95 with 42 balls to spare. Everyone thought it just formality for RCB to wipe it out, but David Miller strong young lad from South Africa, who has been fighting a lone battle for last few games, showed/proved his mettle by striking it hard and clear. Add to the woes, one the best fielder & skipper Kohli dropped a straight forward chance of David miller when he was 41. In the end Satish helped himself with a 20 but its again a One man show Killer Miller doing it for KXIP… From the stage of 95 needed of 42 balls, and winnings with 12 balls to spare says it all..

Kings XI Punjab won the match 6 wickets with 12 balls to spare…

IPL 6: Day 30–Raina’s Century & ABD’s blitzkrieg sums up…

May 3, 2013 at 12:29 am (Cricket, IPL, IPL 2013, IPL 6) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi..

Certainly its Midweek Madness as IPL  is going crazy by having third double header on a week on this same week.

Game 1, CSK in the form of their life met KXIP in their den, Saha & Hussey pair started the innings from the place where they left, As both departed bit earlier today than expected and Dhoni went for a non existent second run to leave the crease very early. So it was another Super Kings day to step up the scoring shoes and it was none other than IPL top scorer Suresh Raina, who did in style with a Century the only record missing in his IPL career resume. Shacky start by KXIP losing David hussey bit quick didn’t help them either. But Shaun Marsh & David Miller struck a partnership between them and got the important runs at crucial junctures and kept the chase always on till the last 6 balls bowled, Dwayne Bravo just made the important difference between both sides by just bowling the last over for just 3 runs and picking 3 wickets. CSK continue to roar in their den.

Chennai Super Kings won the match by 15 runs…

Game 2, not much fancied one as of now, Pune hosting RCB, Yes, What you think is right, this is the team which Gayle torn into pieces and went on to make record books re written. RCB won the toss and went on to pile up the runs in gradual pace today because Gayle has to depart bit early. However it is, in the end its ABD who stole the show and game from Pune Warriors India, by picking 26 runs in the last over bowled by Dinda. PWI as always started of by losing wickets in regular intervals, but for one change Robin Uthappa played a matured and classy knock but it was a lone battle waged which was too much and in the end Pune fell short. Giving RCB the much needed first away for this season.

Royal Challengers Bangalore won the match by 17 runs…

IPL 6: Day 27–Beauty & Blistering, Samson & Rohit Sharma respectively…

April 30, 2013 at 1:29 am (Cricket, IPL, IPL 2013, IPL 6) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi..

Back to Back double header for 3 days in a row now. You tend to feel bored, You shouldn’t be, Because IPL just gave two of their best games on a Monday and that in a month end. Have to feel sorry for those who definitely missed it.

Game 1, RCB looking to pluck their away game losing streak in Jaipur, but before that Dravid won the toss and decided to field first. As always Gayle gave a brisk start, but Middle order of RCB didn’t capitalise much on it. Kohli, Henriqures & ABD played a kind of slow innings compared to their standards. But Vinay Kumar’s three sixes in the last over kept RCB over the par score. 171/6 in 20 overs. Dravid & co started the chase, but this time it was another Master stroke from the Skipper, brought Sanju Samson, 18 years of age young lad first down. he showed class in pull, elegance in inside out’s and innovation in Dilscoop. Still he departed after a good Maiden IPL fifty, Watson and Binny with last stroke ensured Royals fortress remained unconquered and RCB will have their fourth away game losses in a row now.

Rajasthan Royals won the match by 4 wickets with 1 ball to spare…

Game 2, Mumbai takes on KXIP, Gilly decided to sit and came in skipper David Hussey, Rohit sharma who won the coin decided to bat first, as he decided, it looked like his sole responsibility to get Mumbai to a decent score, which he did fantastically by scoring 79 runs of 39 balls. Other Mumbai players stayed to support him, which meant Mumbai made 174/3 in 20 overs. Chasing started wayward, as KXIP lost two of the good players cheaply, Hussey & Marsh who got it first game tried his best to up the antic, before big man from Caribbean again pull out a one hand blinder to send March on his way back. Stiller Miller & Praveen Kumar played their parts to get close as much possible, but in the end 27 runs from David Hussey in last over made difference.

Mumbai Indians won the match by 4 runs…

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

Hi…

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…

Hi..

Double Header Sunday, Two important games for four teams involved…

First Game, Delhi take on Mumbai, Later yet to register themselves in the point table, having lost 6 games in a trot, certainly needed a turn around, if they have any thought of Play offs. Mumbai won the toss and decided to bat first, another change in opening partnership where Dwayne Smith walked out with Sachin, but later failed to deliver, followed a straight drive from Sachin and tickle from Umesh to see Dinesh Karthik’s back as he was backing up too far. Both Rohit & Sachin up the antics to stick a partnership 96 runs between them and few lusty blows from Pollard ensured Mumbai scored 161 in 20 overs. Delhi came out with a piece of advise from the Calypso legend Viv Richards who has joined as the mentor. Oh… Man… Now the whole world want to know what Viv has said…  Both Shewag & Jayawardene came out all guns blazing and smoked Mumbai Indians bowling and stitched the highest partnership for this season to win it all hands down with 18 balls to spare. Where was this Delhi hiding all this days….? Man from Caribbean came to woke up the tigers i guess… 

Delhi Daredevils won the match by 9 wickets with 18 balls to spare…

Second Game, Where most would not be interested PWI Vs KXIP, all would have expected a low scoring affair and not a big game of cricket. But to all surprise came the highest scoring game of this season. For the first time this season Batsmen have called the shots and not the bowlers. For Pune it was Uthappa, Finch, Yuvaraj & Luke Wright who massacred the KXIP bowlers and scored 185 runs. Later KXIP in chase looked almost out when they lost Skipper Gilly & Azhar Mahmood in the space of 7 balls, leaving 5/2 in 1.1 overs. Manan Vohra came together with Mandeep Singh to get a fifty partnership before throwing his wicket away, But David Miller 80*(41) made sure his gritty knock doesn’t go vain as he and Mandeep Singh 77*(58) scored the winning runs in the penultimate ball to clinch a thriller…
