Hi Guys,

Match 4:
Delhi Daredevils Vs Mumbai Indians

Nothing much to pen as its almost a day down now, Kinda busy went on to watch Just go with it in Satyam… Actually Movie was too good for a romantic comedy…

Coming to Match, Malinga mauled the Delhi and they were dusted in ease with solid performance from Little Master.

DD 95/10 in 17.4 overs.
N.Ojha 29      Venugopal Rao 26
L.Malinga  5/13       H.Singh 2/14
MI 99/2 in 16.5 overs.
Sachin 46*         R.Sharma 27*
M.Morkel 1/29      Van de Merwe 0/16


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.
R.Mclaren 51      P.Chwala 15
S.Wagh  3/16      A.Thomas 2/27
PWR 113/3 in 13.1 overs.
M.Manhas 35         J.Ryder 31
R.Mclaren 1/26      P.Kumar 1/28


Pune Warriors had a cake walk , with Yuvi providing the icing on the cake, with a boundary won de match with 41 balls to spare.  With no score to defend, add insult to injury u drop couple of sitters, no way ur giving a chance to see Prethiy’s Dimple…

IPL 3: Day 3 Review…

March 15, 2010 at 1:55 am (IPL, IPL 3) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi guys,

So its a double header and a Sunday, Couldn’t get better for guys in home… Perfect Entertainment… (Sure Cinema halls gone empty…:D)…

Actually i was way back to Chennai this evening, generally i used to book ticket by 7.30 pm… Bcos if ur a pondy guy u ll know the rush which will be available in the bus stand for chennai bus, cant expect a seat without reservation… But today i was totally surprised and taken back for a moment… Seriously man, the bus stand is total empty and there is no need for any reservation, all the buses are moving out just half full, (if its a normal sunday, u ll have 2 bus crowd in one)… But its all different today, Just that moment i realised the effect of IPL and how big a game for ppl… Jai ho Cricket…

Match 4 Review:
Kokata Knight Riders Vs Royal Challengers Bangalore

Confident Dada’s men taking their second match against Jumbo’s Men, Jumbo’s men will miss the presence of KP with them, this time… But they will have Kallis, who has flown a long way overnight to be in the team, (he was in South africa playing Pro 20 finals)..

Ganguly won the toss and decided to field first,  Being last year’s runners, RCB wouldnt have expected their season 3 to begin in the format it has, they were 3 down with just 24 runs in the board after first 6 overs and it became worse as they lost Eoin morgan in the very next over, Karthik being the culprit twice. In came Dravid and Kallis, two well renowned test players tried to repair the innings with few cricketing shots, But Dravid too fell for an expensive drive over cover. Later its just one man show, As kallis went past fifty and took RCB to a total of 135. Shud say KKR bowled really well, esp Angelo Mattews did all right, his line and length was spot on, really did trouble the batsmen… Seems Wasim Akram was a very good pick for Sharukh…

RCB 135/7 in 20 overs
Jacques Kallis 65*             Rahul Dravid 21
Angelo Matthews 4/19    M.Karthik 2/22

KKR 136/3 in 19.2 overs
Brad Hodge 50     M.Tiwary 50
P.Kumar 1/16     Van de merwe 2/27

Chasing a reasonable target, Mallya would have expected his boys to perform atleast with the ball, but tat wasn’t the case, bcos two KKR’s opening batsmen just smashed balls all around the park and its all over b4 u cud blink the eyes, After a 100 run partnership, tiwary departed, as i say, its all lost when RCB picked hodge after scoring his fifty. KKR needed just 24 from 36 balls. After having lost all the way, Kumble men woke up all of a sudden and seems to stop everything and really tried to make a game out of no where, but all did know, its just the delay and inevitable, in the end, Kumble digested the bitter pill. Cant say they fought hard expect for the last 6 overs. Dada and Sharukh khan who is in the ground had smiles all round.

KKR go up in the table with 4 points… (Watch out guys, seems history repeats itself)


Match 5 Review:
Chennai Super Kings Vs Deccan Chargers

As i mentioned b4 my journey time was exactly the same as the match time, so couldnt get chance to see the match other than presentation. But will just review with Cricinfo commentary.

Gilly have lost the pervious match, would be dying to win the match, on the contrary Dhoni will like to begin his campaign with a win… Gilly won the toss and decided to Bat first, right from the beginning nothing went in the way for Chennai as they kept on missing the chances, and gilly was inspired by Yusuf innings it seems he went gaga over Sudeep tyagi and which forced Dhoni to switch to his main Bowler Murali in the third over itself. Later in the next ashwin’s over Chennai did get double strike, removing both the openers, but it brought Symonds and Gibbs, and both were in no mood to relax and took CSK to squares. Late surge from Rohit sharma got Deccan’s to 190. Chennai bowling was the weakest among the all other 8 IPL teams and it did expose clearly, Tyagi had a horrible day going for  39 just in 11 deliveries he bowled.

DC 190/4 in 20 overs
A.Symonds 50             H.Gibbs 45
R.Ashwin 1/26      Muralitharan 0/28

CSK 159/9 in 20 overs
M.S.Dhoni 42     A.Morkel 42*
C.Vaas 3/21     P.Ojha 2/28

Chasing a stiff target 191, Chennai needed a very good start, but it didn’t happen as Vaas ran thru the top order of CSK in no time and CSK was 34/4 by the end of 6 overs. Dhoni and Kemp did try for sometime, but creeping runrate demanded expensive shot and Kemp being the scrap of it, later Skipper was joined by Albie, both tried making best, but run rate never gone down and its curtains for CSK in Chennai home crowd… Thank god i didnt opt to go for this Match…


Standings as on DAY 3:


Interesting Facts of DAY 3:
