April 18, 2013 at 12:07 am (Cricket, IPL, IPL 2013, IPL 6) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )


Second Double Header in a week day, Very tough for all the Cricket lovers…

How to lose a game which was almost won comfortably…? Pune Warriors may be able to give the best answers. If you have seen the match between Sunrisers and PWI. You would be kicking by seeing SRH batting display and say, one of the worst shot selections i have ever seen. PWI Batsmen said, Boss, We are yet to display our skills of batting for you…That’s the kind of Match it was, Apart from Amit Mishra’s Hattrick which PWI awarded to him, nothing was so bright to talk about this match.

Sun Risers Hyderabad won the match by 11 runs…

Second Match of the day, People expected Mumbai to win it hands down, If not a good fighting game which should provide enough entertainment, But What we got was a absolute shocker, as Mumbai bowled to the worst, Batted like gully cricket, and to sum up all, they were all out with 10 balls to spare. Nothing to leave credit out from Rajasthan, they pouched to the opportunities provided, Dravid’s masterstroke of bring Yagnik in No.3 instead of him, proved very effective, and to his luck, Bowling came damn good on the day it mattered most. It is just another day for Rajasthan, where everything clicked in their Fortress Jaipur.

Rajasthan Royals won the match by 87 runs…

IPL 2: Day 4 Review

April 22, 2009 at 1:01 am (IPL) (, , , , , , , )


Its day 4 in IPL, Today i got busy with my MBA project work so couldn’t see the match.

Match 6:


This match is very much critical for both the teams, since both the teams lost their first match… 

KXIP made a sedated start bcos of losing Goel in the early spell to sharma and later managed to reach a respectable total 158, with help of the skipper Yuvraj and also from Jaywardene and Irfan pathan adding to the cause.. In the bowling dept, both dada and Ishant did well to conceded juts 24 runs in their full quota of 4 overs each and ended up picking 2 and 1 wickets respectively.

KXIP 158/6 in 20 overs


I Pathan   32                     K Sangakkara 26

Yuvraj Singh 38             Jayawardene 31

Ganguly – 4-0-24-2,     Ishant Sharma – 4-0-24-1


The second off started bit slow for KKR either, but its all just for two overs, then came, this 6.2 feat tall person from carribean and demolished the bowling attack of KXIP, Yuvraj ran out off ideas and resources. in simple words, he was like a child who lost himself in a huge crowd, didn’t know what to do. May be they hav to blame themselves for this cause, becuase Gayle was dropped twice, first by Karan goel in 2 and later in 32 by sangakarra. This reminded me a classical sentence in Cricket “CATCHES WIN MATCHES” its cent percent true and KXIP lost it… Even rain got into tears on seeing gayle in fire , so he sent out some demons to cool the mother earth, and its no way back to ground. Then came the Duckworth and Lewis and said, Man ur already 11 runs ahead than KXIP, so u win the game. I think its high time for priety to pray to god to save KXIP to save them from rain atleast, their second match is also affected by rain and they ended up in a losing side…


KKR 79/1 in 9.2 overs

Chris Gayle 44             B. Mcculum 21

VS Malik 2-0-23-1     Chawla 2-0-8-0

And finally its happy KKR and SRK.

Match 7:


Its between Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians. Wow man what a match it wud have been… Really its a gr8 pleasure to watch sachin and warne again in action together. Somehow rain gods didnt have mercy to make the way for the match. So its one point each to share….


IPL DAY 4 Interesting fatcs:

– KKR Vs KXIP  is the second match this season to be given result thru D/L method. (first one was DD Vs KXIP)

– RR Vs MI (Match 7) was the second match to be abandoned without even taking toss. (First is Match 47: Between DD Vs KKR, in Delhi last season of IPL)

– Chris Gayle scored his Highest score in T20 today. (Previous best being 16)

– With a shared point MI top the standings table, followed by Chennai Superkings. (as of now)

Didn’t watch the match, so very much limited updates i have today… Meet u 2maro hope to give bit more… Till then its Good bye and Signing off…
