Hi all,

If u have missed the Day 32 in IPL 5… Certainly its worth watching again in Youtube… Don’t Miss it, provided u aren’t a Chennai & Deccan fan. 🙂

Match 49:

Chennai Super Kings Vs Mumbai Indians

With Points table in an hustle, Chennai needed to win this to keep themselves safe and ahead of others. Same the case for Mumbai as well.

Bhajji won the toss and decided to bowl first in Wankade Stadium, Mumbai. Chennai got off to a poor running as Du plessis went as a dead duck to a poor call from Murali Vijay’s call, how veer he made it with some good hitting after that. Raina, Bravo & Dhoni joined the party to make a good score, Malinga’s bowling in death was accurate as ever, where Mumbai conceded only 13 runs in last 12 balls bowled.

Mumbai started off with a maiden by Franklin, once he departed, Sachin joined Rohit Sharma and displayed once of the classy knock you could watch all day long, one word to describe was they were cruising to victory like a space ship. When Tendulkar was caught by brilliance of Faf, Mumbai needed 40 runs of 25 balls, Easy u would say with 8 wickets in hand, But CSK kept their nerves to pick up bunch of wickets from then, as Mumbai need 16 runs in last over. Ben Hilfenhaus bowled the first three balls beautifully for just 2 runs & a wicket, but next three balls was absolute blenders as he fed the hungry Dwanye smith with full tosses and he ate CSK and burped for 6,4,4 to win the game for Mumbai.

Mumbai Indians won the game by 2 wicket in the last ball. 

Match 50:

Deccan Chargers vs Royal Challengers Bangalore

Deccan already in the party spoilers list nothing much to think about, RCB has to win this one without doubt, if not they will fall behind in the end of this season.

Vettori dropped himself for Murali to come in, Kohli capped the RCB team and won the toss and decided to field first.

Dr.Danial Harris got a game and he showed his master-class in the opening slots, by finding over the fence more than couple of times, Dhawan as well was in good knick as both piled on the runs. Another mix up with the opening pairs, as this time it was Danial harris who has to make a long walk back. White joined the dance and Sanga ended with a upbeat to finish with 181/1 in 20 overs

RCB again started of well, Dilshan being the aggressor and Gayle was rotating strike around him, When Gayle was about to explode, DC go this wicket, very soon they picked up Kohli with a stunning catch from Dale Styen. 78 runs from 36 balls, it was almost game for DC, until one man from South africa decided against it, AB de Villers smacked all around the park, esp the 18th over by Dale Steyn went for 23 runs which really turned match on its head. To say in the end RCB won the game more than comfortable with 7 balls to spare. One & Only AB de Villers could have done that as he smacked 47 runs from 17 balls.

RCB won the match by 5 wickets with 7 balls to spare…
