Hi…

Game 1, Sunrisers take on Mumbai Indians, Mumbai won the toss and decided to bat first, but you should ask why did they…? Dwayne Smith, Rohit, and even Pollard found it difficult to get going, not to leave SRH bowled really well, but not the extent where your strike rate should be less than 100. Few lusty blows by Rayudu made sure they had 129/4 on the board. Chase was never a problem with Dhawan anchoring the innings throughout from ball 1 to ball 108, scoring 73 in 55 balls. He was well supported by Sangakarra and Vihari with 20’s. Fiery spell from Ishant Sharma earned him the Man of Match. Sunrisers won the match hands down and making the 4th team to join the 12 points list.

Sun Risers Hyderabad won the match by 7 wickets with 12 balls to spare…

Game 2, Delhi takes on KKR, another team won the toss and decided to bat first, if you think earlier in the day was a blunder, then you need to come up with a more than that for this KKR’s innings. Disastrous start by losing the skipper without even facing a ball for a Diamond Duck. KKR were 84.6 in 15 overs and going no where. Late strike from bowlers made sure they scored 136/7 in 20 overs. Even though Delhi lost both the openers in quick succession Unmukt Chand & Warner’s 95 runs partnership got Delhi almost close to victory. Delhi also have to thank KKR fielders for putting down catches and fielding pathetically.  Delhi won the second game in Raipur back to back fifties from David Warner earned him the Man of the Match.

Delhi Daredevils won the match by 7 wickets with 13 balls to spare…

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

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…
