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

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…
