Hi Guys,

Match 48, Two inform teams meet out to get themselves well set for second position, But it wasn’t the case as rain played the spoilsport and CSK was once again in the receiving end and Duckworth Lewis favoured KKR to win the match by 10 runs.

Match 49, Another decider game for Delhi and Mumbai’s game to cement their place in Semi’s. As always Mumbai got off to a good start, following it Rayudu and Rohit Sharma gave the necessary impetus to get Mumbai to their second highest total of this season 178/4. Only Shewag can save them can he do it again, Nope… Delhi was 7/4 in 4 overs and game was over by then and the rest tried to pass time to evade the impossible. Finally its Mumbai Indians who will be the first team to cement their place in Semi’s, which also means that Delhi is out of the context for this season of IPL. Hard luck Shewag….

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.

IPL 2: Day 34 Review

May 22, 2009 at 1:04 am (IPL) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi Guys,

Its Day 34 in IPL Season 2… And also the final day for the league stage games…

Match 55:

Delhi Daredevils Vs Mumbai Indians

Not a very important game for both the teams,  Delhi will look to have a winning momentum before they get into semi’s. Mumbai will try to have a game for pride before they pack their bags. Shewag won the toss and decided to field first, Mumbai back with the traditional openers, Sanath and Sachin, but it didn’t last long, MI lost wickets in quick successions leaving 28/3 in 4.3 overs.  Then Skipper joined with rahane to build the innings and gor MI beond 100 run mark and got himself out, then nothing was so gr8 rest chipped with few numbers to name ending the innings with 165/8. Bowling, Nannes and Sangwan bowled really well to chip up with wickets.

match 55

Delhi seemed so cool right from the beginning, No panic at any stage, Back in form Shewag and Gambhir stirred the things up well for delhi and its in the end its a cake walk, In simple, delhi had a nice icing on the cake in the end of league matches. Shewag and Gambhir back in form, bowlers doing a fair job and everything is looking good for Semis 2maro. Bowling, cant really pick much, other than Bhajji who came close twice to pick up a Hat trick, other than that, its all just underwritten…. Finally delhi top the table with 4 wicket victory.

Match 56:

Royal Challengers Bangalore Vs Deccan Chargers

A fairly important game for RCB as they will keep an eye on the Net run rate and Deccans are more comfortable to get in at any cause. Kumble won the important toss and decided to Bat first,  Which is right, bcos u never want to have net runrate in mind and u go in for a chase. (finally u may end up exiting like south africa did in T20 world cup).  I think RCB have a curse on the no 7, this is 3rd time for them a wicket fell on 7, this time its Kallis, instead of Uthappa…  later Van de merwe and Manish Pandey carried the innings well with a reasonable scoring rate. The real show came, when the 19 year boy from Karnataka, went berserk against the bowlers, and went on to score the first T20 century by an Indian, this will be the best feeling for his life time. in the ned, few sixes from Virat Kohli helped RCB to get a score of 170/4 in 20 overs. Bowling, Except Ojha and Symonds, none seems to be impressive, Rp singh purple cap holder, went for plenty today especially in his last over he went for 23 runs, which was the big over of the match.

match 56

The equation was If DC wins the match in 11.1 overs, then RCB may lose out in Net run rate and KXIP can sneak in thru.

As always, deccan’s had a good start courtesy Gibbs, he scored at fast pace, and gilly kept knocking the singles around him,  finally gilly was out when he tried to pull a slower delivery of akhil,  score was 68/1 in 6.5 overs.  Things looked good, but RCB ensured they kept hunting down the wickets in the regular intervals, which didn’t allow DC’s for a stable chase, Bowling looked really good, Akhil and Jumbo picked couple each and rest bowled a decent ones to restrict DC’s. In the end, DC failed to reach the target by 12 runs, think back, how costly the last over of DC was…. U cant blame any1 now, finally its a unexpected and resurgent RCB making the way to 3rd place in table and will face Chennai a day after tomorrow in Semi finals 2.

Final Standings of Teams in IPL season 2:

IPL 2: Day 21 Review…Its MI Vs DD…

May 9, 2009 at 2:17 am (IPL) (, , , , , , , , , )

Hi…

Its Day 21 in IPL 2…

Match 35:

Mumbai Indians Vs Delhi Daredevils

Mumbai in a must win situation to see themselves in semi’s, and Delhi, will look to get so closer to that semi’s door. Sachin won the toss and decided to Bat first, But he wouldn’t have expected to come in so early after opting for two new openers, both failing to click and sachin got in at the end of first over. As said nothing went in their way, he himself getting out in a bizarre way, and later in the innings Bravo provided some runs for MI’s to bowl at least for 15 overs.

Bowling was fabulous, but fielding woes continued for delhi too… Nehra, Bhatia and Nannes looked classy in their work and did their job.

match 35

Looking for an target of 116 in 20 overs, Delhi started of the proceedings in slow and steady manner, they seems to be in no hurry to reach the target, they were well convinced to get to 116, with out any pressure, but all of a sudden mumbai pulled in some shock in the name of Duminy and Bhajji’s bowling, which gave a slim hope for MI’s. But its all lost in penultimate 16th over, which really changed the course of the match , where sachin was taken for 19 runs by AB de villers, when the over began its 43 needed of 30, in the end its 24 needed of 24… Which really gave the certain chance to make it up… nothing further cud others do and Ab and Karthik in the end took delhi safe home by 7 wickets….

Which also places them right in the top of the table just above CSK and RR.

Standings as on IPL Day 21:
