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 4: DAY 33 Review…

May 11, 2011 at 1:19 am (Cricket, IPL, IPL 2011, IPL 4) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi Guys,

Match 53, Its the Match Dada will remember as he made his debut for this season of IPL and won the game with a Not out innings. Deccan’s home ground seems to still cursed and they just have one victory in their home ground and it will be till the next season of IPL starts in Hyderabad. Not a gr8 finish for a good start from Deccan’s and few poor fielding efforts let their team down. Ryder, Uthappa and Back in Action Ganguly sealed the game for PWI with 6 wickets and 10 balls to spare, Even though this win does no good nor bad to both these teams, Its a game for DADA fans.

Match 54, Mighty Mumbai take on KXIP who now have to win all of their remaining games 5 out of 5 will get a place in Semi’s. Not a new Scenario for KXIP skipper Gilchrist as he has already done the same with Deccan’s. With few pep words from team Owner Preity Zinda seems to have effect, as KXIP were in fire right from the start, even though Munaf patel and Kieron Pollard seems to have brakes, KXIP raced past to 163/8 in 20 overs. Following it, Mumbai Indians displayed a dismal batting performance of this season, without any reason shots were taken and went cheaply as MI bowled themselves out in the 13th over for 87 runs, their lowest ever in IPL history. KXIP won the match by 76 runs their highest ever in IPL History. If u remember very well Mumbai was the only team in last season that wasn’t bowled out before 20 overs, even in the finals they were just 9 down…

Standings as on DAY 33:

As of Now Teams for Semi’s:

1. Mumbai Indians, 2. Chennai Super Kings, 3. Kolkata Knight Riders

Cat on wall:

1. Royal Challengers Bangalore 2. Rajasthan Royals, 3.Kochi Tuskers Kerala and 4.Kings XI Punjab.

Out of Contention:

1. Delhi Daredevils, 2, Pune Warriors, and 3. Deccan Chargers

Interesting facts as on DAY 33:

– Lasith Malinga became the first bowler to pick 25 wickets in an IPL season.

– Lasith Malinga is also now the highest wicket taker in IPL, with 59 wickets to his name.

– Munaf Patel became the fourth bowler to pick five wickets in IPL 4; other three were Malinga, Harbhajan Singh and Ishant Sharma If ur wondering, Yes, 3 are from Mumbai Indians, just leaving the odd guy Ishant Sharma from Deccan’s.

– Munaf’s five wicket haul is the only one which didn’t get him the Man of the Match Award and also which ended up on the losing cause, where other 3 bowlers 5 wicket haul did both. (Thanks to Bala for this stat)

– 76 runs victory by KXIP is their highest victory margin bettering 66 runs victories over the same rivals Mumbai Indians in the first season of IPL.

– Mitchell Marsh (PWI) and Bhargav Bhatt (KXIP) picked up 4 wickets each on the same day and both picked up the man of the match for their efforts.

– It’s one of the days, we didn’t even see a fifty from anyone of the batsmen even after two full games, Manish Pandey was the closest to come, and who was plumb when he was in 49.

–  Praveen Kumar bowled the 24th Maiden of this tournament.

– Few days back Mumbai Indians recorded their lowest IPL score 94/8 in 20 overs Vs Rajasthan Royals and today they overrun it with 87 all out Vs KXIP, Ironically their lowest total before this season was 116/9 Vs KXIP in the very same ground Mohali.

IPL 3: Day 29 Review…

April 10, 2010 at 2:26 am (IPL, IPL 3) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi Guys,

Its Day 29 in IPL 3…

Match 41 Review:
Kings XI Punjab Vs Mumbai Indians

Finally, Its not a must win game for any of these two teams, KXIP will play for pride infront their home crowd for the one last time in season 3. Mumbai will look to book their semi’s berth and don’t want to take any chance in it.

Sachin won the toss and decided to Bat first, in a very good batting track, Mumbai pulled in JP duminy to his first IPL game of this season, which made D.Bravo to sit out. KXIP almost had a renewed team, as new 5 made into squad, atleast it good they try out all now. (Good for next season) Mumbai got off to a bad start as S.Dhawan chopped one on to his stumps,  Rayudu and Sachin continued in boundaries, runs came quick, Sanga needed desperate break thru gave the ball to Chawla, he responded with 3 big wickets, Which also include Sachin in it, Mumbai looked in a spot of bother at 74/4 in 10 overs, Sathish and Duminy played some quite overs,once Sathish departed, Pollard played a brief innings, To say, excellent bowling from KXIP which really surprised me, (without doubt many would have too, how come this team bowled so bad all this tournament..?) Duminy punched few shots to get Mumbai past 150 run mark and they ended with 154 in 20 overs, losing 9 wickets, 3 in last one.

MI 154/9 in 20 overs.

JP Duminy 35       A.Rayudu 33
P.Chawla 3/24     I.Pathan 3/29

KXIP 158/4 in 19.2 overs.

K.Sangakarra 56         A.Barath 33
L.Malinga 2/36      JP Duminy 1/15

KXIP WON THE MATCH BY 6 WICKETS.

To say KXIP will be very much happy with their bowling performance now its time for Batsmen to stand up and give a win for their team. To mark it, Mahela went on to blaze ball all over the park and scored a quick fire 31, which his team badly needed, Barath and Sanga continued the Run hunt and it was quite eventful,played slowly and steadily towards the target. After Barath, Yuvi joined Sanga, but he wasn’t troubling the bowlers, as he was troubled by them in contrary. played a miserable innings of 15 runs in 21 balls. (not the yuvi u wanna see in T20 world cup, hope it passes off…) Finally Sanga got KXIP so close to victory but just before crossing the line, he was caught in deep, while leaving he said to Pathan “Finish it off Mate”… He did it in style and KXIP pull another Upsetter over table toppers this time. Are we to see any more of these…? Shud wait and see… Without doubt Preity Smile lenghted more than a mile… 🙂

IPL 3: Day 19 Review…

March 31, 2010 at 12:21 am (IPL, IPL 3) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi guys,

Its Day 19 in IPL 3…

Match 27 Review:
Kings XI Punjab Vs Mumbai Indians

Two teams of total contrast to say, One team heads the points table and the other just languishing in the bottom of the table and really finding difficult to find back the form.  Sachin won the toss and decided to bowl first, With the formidable team to backup, he can merely ignore them.  Mahela being the new captain for KXIP, (Dont think Sangakarra was removed from the squad bcos of his performance) he is fined for the slow over rate, Remember last match he took 1.45 hours to bowl 20 overs. Another fact to add, Today, Sachin took almost the same hours to bowl…. So keep ur eyes open for a MI, May be without Sachin for the next match, r just some fine will do too….

Coming back to match, KXIP needed a better start than previous outings, But it wasn’t the case, as Zak removed Bopara cheaply for a single, Shaun Marsh back into team in place of Sangakarra(if u very well remember he is the orange cap winner in 2008), Shaun started the things of well, inspite of losing Bisla too cheaply, Stand in Skipper and Marsh did play really well, eventhough the boundaries are hard to come, both too risky singles and ran well between the wickets. But one too many in the end, ended their partnership with a bizarre runout. Out of form Yuvraj didnt make much impression either,  in between Shaun marsh scored his 6th IPL fifty,(first of this season in his very first game). Just when KXIP thought to accelerate, Slinger Malinga came to destroy their hope as he removed Pathan and Marsh in back to back deliveries. From then on wickets fell every over, and many didnt make trouble to scorecard, except Chawla who got KXIP to a score if 163 with few lus(c)ty blows… 🙂 Preity was quite contented with the score it seems…

KXIP 163/10 in 20 overs.

S.Marsh 57           P.Chawla 22
Malinga 4/22      Zaheer 3/34

MI 164/6 in 19.3 overs.

S.Dhawan 50    S.Tiwary 31
Bopara 3/31    Pathan 1/20

MI WON THE MATCH BY 4 WICKETS.

After a commendable bowling performance, Mumbai began well the chase, as Sachin became the highest run getter in IPL and now the proud owner of Orange Cap. (Seriously Orange doesn’t look cool with dark blue, Whatever), Just when he crossed Kallis, he was caught in long on and had to head back to pavilion, Pollard walked in at no.3 to all surprise,  Both Dhawan and pollard played out another 5 overs and scored the required run rate score, in the brief innings Pollard had a go at chwla, taking him for a four and six. Bopara came in to bowl and he did pick Dhawan who just completed his fifty. All of a sudden runs dried up and KXIP started feeling they are having the chance in the game, As Rayudu walked back to a soft dismissals followed Bravo, after a highest six(not longest)…  With 3 overs to go 31 to win, Tiwary and Satish sticked together and got the necessary runs and held their nerves, Eventhough Tiwary was out in the last ball of 19th over, Sathish kept himself cool and faced Brett lee and did score 6 runs which is necessary to take Mumabi Indians home (Thanks to sloppy fielding from KXIP), to the joy of Mukesh Ambani, whos jumping in the lobby. To mention eventhough KXIP got the necessary runs r either their Bowling was good, Fielding so poor, which has totally let their team down. Mumbai Indians won the match by 4 wickets and points table will have no reflections just other than the increased points for Mumbai Indians.

Standings as on Day 19 in IPL 3:

Interesting Facts on Day 19 IPL 3:

– Shaun Marsh scored his 6th IPL fifty.

– Again today, KXIP had 26 balls without boundary between 3 to 8 overs and they are now

tied with KKR for the same record.

– 15 out of 26 matches are won team batting first, and lst 4 games are won by team batting first.

– KXIP concede 8.62 runs per over, as u could expect worst in IPL 2010 by any team.

– MI just broke the record by having 32 balls without boundary, which will be the highest of this season now.

– 21 extras conceded by MI is the highest number of freebies offered by any team, KXIP held this record with 18 extras.

– After 19 days, Kallis’s Orange Cap has been taken by Sachin Tendulkar, he went past 310 of J.kallis.

– Malinga’s figure 4/22 is the second best of this IPL season, just failed to better his fellow countryman Angelo Matthews 4/19.

At the end of DAY 19:

IPL 2: Day 25 Review

May 13, 2009 at 1:07 am (IPL) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi…

Another Double header day in IPL, and its 25th Day in IPL season 2.

Match 41:

Royal Challengers Bangalore Vs Kolkata Knight Riders

A game of pride for KKR and a must win game to see themselves in semi’s for RCB. McCullum won the toss and decided to bat first, Yep, to say, it was the day of Brendon, he did extremely well, lead from the front with a superb knock of 84 not out. well supported by David Hussey. with a fabulous innings from these two, KKR reached their highest score of the tournament 173 in 20 overs, which looked so much competitive in the pitch. In bowling, Vinay did pickup couple of wickets in the beginning, but they failed to strike in at the important times. 

KKR 173/4 in 20 overs

McCullum 84*        David Hussey 43

Vinay Kumar 2/33     Kumble 1/28


RCB 176/4 in 19.2 overs

Ross Taylor 81*     Kallis 32

M.Karthik 2/28     Mendis 1/21

Its always tough chasing a score of 174 for the opposition, yes RCB felt tat so, they went for the shots right from the beginning, kallis and ryder gave a good opening partnership, before McCullum took a stunning catch (i guess it shud be the catch of the tournament as of now) of Kallis to send him back to pavilion, and with 2 other quick blows, KKR really looked like winning their second game of the season.  At a stage RCB needed 94 of 48 balls, which is almost at the run rate of 12 an over. But it all looked so easy for one man from Kiwi land, Its ross taylor, who took KKR by horns and left them pampered in the end. scored a winning 81* of just 33 balls.  Bowling wasn’t worth mentioning except karthik who did trouble the batsmen a bit, rest a simple sorry performance. 

Spare a thought for this gentleman, Brendon McCullum, He made a valiant knock of 84 runs, took a blinder and did his job perfectly, but still then they lose the match. Nothing more to say for this poor guy, guess he has having a bad time, try out Indian pooja’s it shud work u Brendon. 

 

Match 42:

Mumbai Indians Vs Kings XI Punjab

A much need game for both here, team which ever wins will look close to semi’s….  Yuvi won the toss and decided to bat first, but it didn’t prove worthy, since all KXIP batsmen had a cat walk from ground to pavilion, only sunny sohal had some guts to play some shots, rest all just made their special appearance on the screen, Pathan dreadful runout, Yuvi’s ridiculous shot, Sohal’s casualness…. Oh dear oh dear all proved very costly for KXIP, they ended up scoring just 119 in their 20 overs. A special mention has to be made for the stupendous bowling display by Bhajji and JP Duminy, who really bowled well and picked up the crucial wickets in the right time. 

match 42

Just Needing 6 an over, it shud be a easy job, but MI was well aware, they have fallen short of 3 runs to the same target and to the same opposition, as expected KXIP spur a surprise by picking jayasuriya very early for just 4.  Actually MI 11/1 in 4 overs, but it is to blame on Sreesanth who bowled a very poor over, giving away 21 runs in the over, which really turned the game to Mumbai’s way, even though they lost rahane later, but it didn’t matter for Master blaster and Bravo to take home safely, with more than 3 overs to spare.

MI won the match by 6 wickets.

IPL 2: Day 12 Review

April 30, 2009 at 1:31 am (IPL) (, , , , , )

Hi…

Its Day 12 in IPL…

Beautiful day of low scoring thrillers.

Match 19:

RCB Vs KKR

Its two teams down under in action. As expected its a very close and an exciting game.

Bredon McCulum won the toss and decided to bat first, and it didnt work for him esp, he was out in the very first ball of the match. Its Chris Gayle and Van der merwe, who bought KKR to a total of 192 in 20 overs. and its Anil Kumble who bowled exceptionally well, 4-0-16-2

match-19

Chasing 140 to win with 7 runs per over. Bangalore came back from the Uthappa’s Opening effect, this time goswami placed a fine knock and hope he retains the position. Opening partnership of 69 was the first for bangalore 5o and above partnership of this season.

then kept thmeselves at tha hunt, even though wickets fell at the other end. But boucher holds the nerves and scored needed 10 runs of the very last over. May be i shud say, chris gayle was a bad choice to bowl out the last over. 

Finally bangalore wins their second match. Hope things go good for them…

 

Match 20:

MI vs KXIP

If u say last one was a close game and a low scoring thriller. then how to name it…. pls help me…

Fabulous game went till the wire and pendulum was swinging in both ways for every over.

KXIP started off bit slow i shud say, lost goel early in the innings then bopara and finally skipper yuvi before the break, which ensured , they made just 50 runs in their first 10 overs,  really i shud say it didnt click well for punjab guys. pitch was pretty slow and ball stops a bit before coming into the bat, so batsman ended scooping the ball in the air many a times. No partnerships and anyone to with hold the innings with Kumar sangakarra, who had a lone vigil in the crease till the end, making an unbeaten 45 runs. and bowlers for Mumbai did really well esp: slinger malinga claimed the figures of 4-0-12-2, and rest others also chipped in.

match-20

Just needing 120 runs to win, evry1 felt, its a sitter for them with the subliminal form of Sanath and sachin from the last match, it all just counted in times, but no mumbaikar wud have beleived the score after 4.1 overs, its 12/3 and both sanath and sachin back to dressing room.  the start which KXIP wud dreamt off.. and they lost the track all of a sudden bravo played a poor shot to get himself out, Abishek nayar sticked a bit with JP duminy to steer ship back to position,  but no one cud say, that someone gained advantage at any point, it was swinging again and again. Finally its all abt 2 inchs shot for JP duminy taking mumbai to a home of victory, Abdulla bowled a very good last over, just conceding 8 runs and claiming the wicket of JP duminy. in the nail bitting match its KXIP who won by 3 runs in the end.

Whaaaaaaatttttttttaaaaaaaa Match………

Standings as on Day 12:

standings-9

Still there is no change in the top position, Deccans run high and followed by Delhi. but its not looking so good for SRK and his team. (started cost cutting i guess, check out news papers….)


Interesting facts on Day 12:

– Malinga is the leading wicket taker and he is the only player who has the record of bowling all full quto of his 4 overs and keeping his economy below 6. His stunning figues are 3/15 , 3/19, 3/11 and 2/12. which add up to 57 runs in 16 overs and gaining 11 wickets.

– KXIP defended the lowest ever total of IPL season against MI.

– Its ninth time a batsman is out after strategic time out, this time the unlucky guy is Jayawardene.

– MI scored 47/4 in the first 10 overs, which is also the lowest ever score made in first 10 overs.

– Beleive it or not Team topping in the total no of booundaries scored is Royal challengers bangalore with 77 Boundries (in 6 games) of the season till now, and followed by CSk with 55 fours.

– MN van Wyk of KKR took four catches against RBC which becomes the best performance by a KKR wicket keeper.

– In the  match KKR and RCB, five players  shared the award for the most sixes. (Hodge and Saha from KKR, Kohli, boucher and van de merwe from RCB)

–  Least boundary hit by a team in full 20 overs is KXIP, against MI, they got just four 4s and 2 sixes.

Hell lot of fatcs…. Hmm… i am enjoying it… Hope to update everyday as i do…. see u 2maro with CSK and RR clasing for the points table battle.
