Game 1, Last game in cricket field for the Australian Wicket keeping legend Gilchrist. Rohit won the toss and decided to field first, Both the openers didn’t make a big impression as they departed with 6 on the board. It was left to Azhar Mahmood & Marsh to take the KXIP into safety, which they both did perfectly with timed aggression with a partnership of 148 runs. Later scoring 80 of 44 balls and Marsh got 63 from 47 balls. Manan Vohra late 20 made sure KXIP scored 183 in 20 overs. Mumbai was totally out of form today, no one looked to get going at any point and credit also goes to KXIP bowlers who kept Mumbai always in the bay. However best part is when Gilly bowled the last over for the first time in his cricketing career and picked wicket in the very first ball. Later followed the Gilly’s own version of Gagnam style to end the veteran’s cricketing career.

Kings XI Punjab won the match by 50 runs…

Game 2, Just time pass for the crowd should we call it, rain curtailed match and 8 overs per side. Tailor made situation for players like Gayle, Kohli & ABD. RCB in a do or die situation came really good with skipper leading from the front scoring a quick fifty. Few skiers from Gayle in the middle overs made sure to get mammoth 106/2 in 8 overs. CSK never got into chase, late strike from Dhoni & Vijay made sure CSK scored 82 runs. RCB won a very important game and now they will be hoping KKR to win the game against SRH tomorrow and make way for RCB to playoff’s.

Royal Challengers Bangalore won the match by 24 runs…

Standings as on DAY 46:

IPL 5: Day 22 – Rayudu held on to a cliff hanger…

April 26, 2012 at 2:29 am (Cricket, IPL, IPL 2012, IPL 5) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi all,

Match 33:

Mumbai Indians Vs Kings XI Punjab

Nothing much to write on the KXIP performance for the day, as Hussey’s desperation and Miller’s late blow and Harbhajan’s poor captaincy all aided KXIP to score more than par score of 168/3 in 20 overs.

Match 33 Scorecard:
KXIP 168/3 in 20 overs.
D.Hussey 68*              D.Miller 34*
RP Singh 1/27             C.Mckay 1/36
MI 171/6 in 19.5 overs.
R.Sharma 50               A.Rayudu 34*
A.Mahmood 2/23       P.Awana 3/39
MI WON THE MATCH BY 4 WICKETS & 1 ball to spare…

Mumbai needed a miracle to win after losing wickets in regular and it miracle came a blessing from Chwla in the penultimate over in which both Peterson & Rayudu piled up 27 runs to win, from the equation of 32 needed in 12 balls, it became 5 need of 6 balls. It was just ritual from MI to finish the game in last over with a ball to spare. Mumbai won the game in just 2 overs of insanity.

Match 34:

Chennai Super Kings Vs Royal Challengers Bangalore

Another match in the two days to be called with any action, all we had is just toss, in which Bangalore won the toss and decided to field first. This will certainly pull down the viewership of IPL 5. This should been a cracker of an contest after the one we had in Chennai with the highest run chase for this season.

However end of the day, Now both teams will share a point each and will join the top 4 in the points table.

Hi all,

Match 31:

Pune Warriors India Vs Delhi Daredevils

Being in a prime form, Delhi will like to continue their runs and also look for their revenge having lost their last game in a scratch. Dada’s Men will look to repeat it one more time to be in the top.

Not the best of starts for Pune, as they were 2/2 losing Ryder & Ganguly early, but those are the only two wickets to fell for them, Both Robin Uthappa & Manish Pandey ensured that they stayed in the crease, but failed to get a big score for the team. As they ended up leaving 146/2 in 20 overs. thanks to some tight bowling by Delhi.

V.Shewag 87*         K.Pietersen 27
R.Sharma 1/23       M.Karthik 0/26

Match was over even before u could blink the eyes. As there were 24 balls left when score required was achieved.
