Hi…

After a journey for 54 days, It has reached a stage where Chennai will meet Mumbai a dejavu of 2010 finals. Will Chennai make history repeat itself or Mumbai will help themselves to win their first ever IPL trophy.

Big Finals – Rohit Sharma won the important toss and decided to bat in a slow and tricky pitch. Not a ideal start would have wanted as Mumbai were three down with 16 on the board, with skipper being the last victim. Karthik along with Rayudu struck for a moment and made damage control to put Mumbai Indians back on track., Once karthik was dismissed in came Man from Caribbean, Kieron pollard, who owned this format of cricket, played a gem of an innings even though people around him kept walking away from him. He ended the match with two monumental back to back sixes to give Mumbai a good score of 148/9 in a tricky pitch.

Chennai needing less than 150 to win, got off to a dreadful start, losing 3 wickets that of Hussey, Raina & Badrinath with just 3 on the board. It was Karthik & Rayudu who did the damage control form Mumbai from same position, but Vijay & Bravo failed to do and Jadeja followed with a worst shot of his lifetime to get out for a duck. Which made CSK 39/6 in the half way. Chennai was left alone with their skipper to do the job, but even for him it was too big pill to swallow. However he tried as much as he could, which is clearly visible by the fact, Dhoni has scored 63 runs and all the other 10 players put together scored just 62 runs. In the end Mumbai Indians won their first ever IPL trophy and became the champs of IPL 2013/Season 6.

However even before Mumbai could soak in the happiness of lifting the cup, Sachin announced himself saying that he is retiring from the IPL cricket. Expected him to play for one more season, but still Legend has made his call when his team has delivered a the icing in cake for him.

Mumbai Indians won the match 23 runs…

IPL 6: Day 49 Qualifier 1–Hussey & Raina help CSK to book themselves the 5th IPL Final…

Qualifier 1, Dhoni won the coin and decided to bat first, When the big day comes, Chennai is totally a revamped team, CSK got off to a good start with 52 runs before losing Vijay while trying to up the run rate. Then came the partnership between Mr.Cricket Hussey & all time CSK star Raina, which changed the total complexion of the game. Hussey was subtle in his touch & class in anchoring along with Raina who showed the pure aggression & T20 style of batting. Both put on a 140 runs partnership in 76 balls which helped CSK to post a taunting 192/1 in 20 overs.

Mumbai without Sachin lost Aditya tare very early, but however Dwayne Smith scored a blistering blitzkrieg fifty of 21 balls to get Mumbai off to a flyer. But its that man again with golden arm for Dhoni, Sir Jadeja who picked the dangerous Smith at 68 of 28 balls. Once he is out suddenly Mumbai looked like headless chickens. Karthik got out sweeping to a straight ball, followed Skipper Rohit Sharma. For a very Brief moment Pollard looked like turning on the game with two back to back sixes off Jadeja, But u always know you can’t get away from Sir, just after hitting two sixes, so he had the last laugh by dismissing him and picking the third wicket of the day in the very same over. From then it was just Catching session for CSK, as Mumbai batsmen came to scoop the balls in the air and CSK fielders made sure they picked every one of them without missing. In the end Mumbai were bowled out for 144 in 18.4 overs.

Chennai Super Kings won the match by 48 runs and through to the finals for the fifth time in 6 seasons of IPL…

Hi..

Last time when these two teams met, to a big surprise Pune defeated CSK, courtesy Steven Smith’s handy knock. Can the history repeat itself. Not really with a kind of form Men in yellow as of now.

Chennai won the toss and decided to Bat first, Lost the openers in quick succession, in form Hussey departed very early, finally giving a chance for Badrinath to bat, He stitched a partnership with Suresh Raina and gave CSK a solid platform for the skipper Dhoni to unleash himself in the last 5 overs and he just killed PWI by scoring 45 of 16 balls to end the CSK innings with 164/3 in 20 overs. PWI never looked like they are going to chase this score stated losing wickets in heaps, they lost top 4 in no time and 6 down in 9 overs summed up the whole game. Mohit Sharma bowled well to pick 3 crucial top order wickets. As always Steven Smith was the only man who tried to put a fight, but too much for him to handle.

Chennai Super Kings won the match by 37 runs…

IPL 6: Day 26–Its Mr.Cricket for CSK & Warner for Delhi…

April 28, 2013 at 11:58 pm (Cricket, IPL, IPL 2013, IPL 6) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi all,

Double header to kill the time in a Sunday…

First Game, Game of heavyweight’s Chennai taking on Kolkata, Gambhir won the coin and strangely decided to field first, Which helped Dhoni & Men to salve themselves from the scorching sun and make KKR pay for their mistake. Mr Cricket does it again & again for CSK. Today with another breath taking 95 runs in sapping conditions, well supported first by Saha (who got the chance because Vijay is injured) then later by Raina. As always Dhoni finished up the innings in style to post their highest score for the season. CSK ended up with mammoth 200/3 in 20 overs. Chasing almost 10 runs an over, KKR got a delicious first over from rusty Nannes who gave 14 runs away as freebies, not only that today, CSK totally looked awkward in fielding & bowling except for one or two overs. Thanks they had enough runs on the board to save themselves from the mistakes. Bisla’s monumental effort almost gave KKR the victory before Huss Monster shacked the stumps to break the hopes of KKR. A good last over from Morris ensured CSK won the match finally. They chase or defend, it doesn’t count, one thing for sure is Last over & tense moments, where CSK will emerge victorious.

Chennai Super Kings won the match by 14 runs…

Second game battle for wooden spooner’s as the last two team in the table fight out their last position to rise over the above. Everyone of the Delhi batsmen had a start but as it was the case in the tournament, failed to convert it, And again Warner played a important knock of 51 from 25 balls to put Delhi at a comfortable zone of 164/5 in 20 overs. Pune started off well, thanks to poor fielding efforts from Delhi, Finch & Uthappa made 37 runs each before getting dismissed in the same over, which opened the back door Delhi and they started sneaking past slowly & steadily, Luke Wright also helped their course with poor batting. Finally Delhi just moved up the ladder a touch up to end up at 8th position in the Standing list.

Delhi Daredevils won the match by 15 runs…

With Tournament almost half way through, from now on it becomes necessary to keep a note on Standings, So here they are…

Match 43, Chennai takes on Rajasthan in their home ground, where just like their opponent’s Rajasthan Chennai have a fantastic record this season, having played 4 and won all those in style. Royals got off to a classic T20 Start, thanks to Dravid, who even looked better than hard hitting Shane Watson, At the middle they were well set with 86/0 in 10 overs, looked to go beyond 180 in ease, but some brilliant bowling, fielding and excellent catches turned the match upside down for CSK, Allowing RR to finish at 147/6 in 20 overs. The chase looked so easy even after losing Vijay so early, Raina and Hussey made the things so simpler and played with the clear plan to chase down 148. Eventually CSK won their 5th Home game i style with 8 wickets and 8 balls to spare.

Only stand out performance for Pune was Rahul Sharma who finished with the magical figures of 4-0-7-2, with awesome economical rate less than 2. But its always said one man can’t win 11 person’s game. In the chase Uthappa and Pandey tried their best to get close the score and none looked to go for the kill, Attitude made the task so easier for MI bowlers and they won the game easily as PWI went past 139/7 in 20 overs, leaving 21 runs short of the desired target.
