IPL 5: Day 44 – Deccan’s play first of the spoiler’s to knock Rajasthan out…

May 19, 2012 at 12:44 am (Cricket, IPL, IPL 2012, IPL 5) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi all,

So many have gone past in a week where I have been busy in my native place to attend two year once festival for our deity.  Everything went well and here I am back to blog…

Few things that I could have missed…,

1. Dwayne Bravo’s Miandad style finish against KKR.

2. Chris Gayle’s blistering knock of 128* from 62 balls against DD.

3. Rohit Sharma’s Classic century of 109* runs against RCB.

4. Fiery Ben Hilfenhaus bowling DD out of the match.

5. Inspired Hussey & Gurukreet take KXIP live another day.

6. Gilly’s come back in style to smile for all reasons.

Match 68:

Rajasthan Royals Vs Deccan Chargers

It’s one of the two games that Royals have to win to be in the playoff’s, For Deccan, it will be a spoiler if they can win it.

Dravid won the toss and decided to bat first, Not the kind of start he expected as Rahane & Watson departed with meagre scores. Dravid with standed with few classic shots, but not before lofting Gony to the deep square hands with 39 runs to his name. Shah & Menaria tried to build the momentum, but they failed to do so, Eventually losing wickets at the wrong times. As RR finished with 126/8 in 20 overs.

Deccan’s would have felt that they are in with a fair chance to win their 2nd game in front of their home crowd. Both Akshath Reddy & Dhawan gave a solid start scoring 63 runs in 8 overs, put the runrate way below the expected.  But still DC wasn’t through with the game easily as Rajasthan pecked back with couple of wickets quickly, but this time Deccan’s didn’t press the panic button as they held their nerves quite well to pull off a 5 wicket victory and put Rajasthan out of contention.
Deccan Chargers won the game by 5 wickets with 8 Balls to spare…

Standings as on DAY 44:

Qualification Scenario for the teams in contention:

RR is out of the contention of this IPL 5…  It leave us with MI, CSK, KXIP & RCB fighting for the last two spots…

For CSK to qualify – Its Simple as that  KXIP & RCB has to lose their next matches…  

For KXIP to qualify – Have win their next game and wait for RCB to lose their game, that’s enough as they will knock CSK out as they will move to 18 points.

For RCB to qualify – Just win the next game against – DC.

For MI – If KXIP or RCB have lost then they are through with 18 points they have, if both have won their games then its a virtual knockout game against RR, Need to win to enter… 

Interesting facts as on Day 44:

–          Win against Rajasthan Royals for Deccan Chargers is only their second victory in their home ground in Hyderabad in all the five season played.

–          Gayle is the first player in IPL to score more than 700 runs in an IPL season; previous best was by Sachin Tendulkar 618 runs in Season 3.

–          Gayle is also the Highest run scorer in the tournament with 128* runs.

–          Deccans’s 3rd victory of this season, and it is just against the second team, because they won both their previous matches against PWI.

–          Shikhar Dhawan went past Rahane to take the top scorer spot after Gayle, he is now with 564 runs and Rahane following with   548.

–          Michael Hussey scored the 600th six of IPL

At the end of DAY 44:

No. of Catches dropped for the day – 3

Total no. of Boundaries – 1697

Total no. of Sixes – 647

Longest Six – Chris Gayle – 111,109,106,106 &106 Meters followed by Kieron Pollard – 105 Meters.

IPL 2: Semi Final – 2 Review

May 24, 2009 at 12:49 am (IPL) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi guys,

Its Semi final – 2 in IPL season 2…

Semifinal – 2:

Chennai Super Kings Vs Royal Challengers Bangalore

Two competitive south teams, playing down for finals with another team from south Deccan’s….

Kumble won the toss and decided to chase, since this ground has a very good record in chasing…  Chennai came out well with Parthiv and Hayden, scored 61 runs for the first wicket. in this partnership surprisingly, Patel dominated hayden, very soon opener left the job to Raina and Dhoni, Both these batsmen didn’t find their real class act today, just ran away singles and close two’s… Boundaries are very much rare in their partnership. they sticked till 15 overs with just a score around 110.  It didn’t kick to a huge total in the end, just finishing up to 146 in 20 overs. Which is a par less score in this ground.  Bowling was fantastic, Kumble armoured his men with confidence and made them to feel it…  When u look at the economic rate, you  ll surely  say “All did a brilliant job in a T20 game”. 

All came up with the goods, when needed….

sf 2

Chasing moderately low score in this ground, Kallis and inform Manish started the things in boundaries, But Gony struck with a feature touch nick to keeper of Kallis, which signaled the first blow for RBC, very soon Van de Merwe was gone after a catch was dropped by Murali. Leaving 22/2 in 3 overs. RBC was in a spot of bother to say…. But in came the Indian Wall “Dravid” and Young player Manish who responded well under the gr8 man, Both simply played a stunning and match winning innings for RBC. They played the important part of the game with caution and necessary aggression. Which almost sealed them the finals berth. 72 runs Partnership did the trick for them, Chennai could have snicked a slight hope , when they got Dravid and Manish in quick succession, but Ross and Kohli ensured nothing went away from Bangalore… And finally winning the game by 6 wickets, which is also their sixth win in a row… Gr8 going guys… Winning seventh in a row, will be a dream for them…

 

Interesting facts on IPL 2 Semi finals 2:

– 59/1 is the highest ever score made by Bangalore in their first 6 overs.

IPL 2: Semi Final -1 Review

May 23, 2009 at 1:51 am (IPL) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi guys,

Its Semi’s time in IPL 2…

Semi Final 1:

Delhi Daredevils Vs Deccan Chargers

Finally its time for Knockout situation, and Do or Die battle for the teams, First up is Delhi a team who are on a roll and won maximum no.of games in this tournament and on the other  side, team who made into semi’s with the help of KKR a bit, (KKR defeated RR in a very important last game, which allowed DC to get in), not a gr8 confidence to go into semi’s.

Pitch report said, its a 160-170 track and captain winning the toss will definitely Bat first, But, on the contrary Gilly won the toss and decided to field first (just for ur remembrance, Dc lost lost 3 out of 4 games chasing, except against KKR, which was won by Rohit’s Magic), Really a brave move by Gilly and asked to shewag to take strike… Man O Man, Ryan Harries bowled a fabulous first over,he got rid of both the openers for duck and created a Maiden, a disastrous start for delhi…  Not to mention, Gilly and the whole team was in Cloud 9…  Then came Skipper Shewag and Dilshan to build the innings, Dilshan had an early reprival of missed run out by Harris.  Till the half way mark, both kept the innings going with some scintillating shots on all side of the wickets, esp shewag’s trademark shots are awesome to watch. Delhi were 83/2. Its really a gr8 comeback after a maiden double strike first over.

Once again Strategic break worked on the favor of bowling team as symonds got the prize scalp as Shewag, who needlessly tried to push a middle stump delivery for a single moving way across the stumps and finally giving trouble to umpires fingers. Surprisingly Shewag went without scoring any six today. Once he is gone, Dilshan and Ab de villers were greeted by some really smart bowling by DC, which doesn’t give any room to free their arms… Except these three, no one else crossed double figures which says the rest. Dilshan scored a well made 50 to get Delhi to a defend-able total of 153. Their main prob was, they lost 4 wickets in last 2 overs, which didn’t really help the score to go up… Actually credit to deccans’ who bowled exceptionally well, esp Harris who picked 3 wickets, RP singh had couple in the last over, and others too did a fair job for a T20 game.

ghhj

A Big Game and a Target is ahead and a must win situation for DC’s. In came the Skipper Gilly with his fellow south african partner Gibbs, First over for Delhi is a disaster, am i repeating again the same sentence, even then i am right yep, Gilly the destroyer, scored 5 consecutive boundaries of Dirk Nannes over to start the innings off to a flyer. Other hand Gibbs, got himself out, with a poor shot selection. But Gilly told, none needed, i ll finish the game guys and oh Boy he did massacre the bowling of delhi, Bowl short, Full, half volley, yorker, slower, and name u know in cricket, he knows just two words, either its Four or Six. Shewag who hasn’t bowled even a single over, went to bowl one and give 25 runs off it… in the Power-play over DC scored 84/1. Gilly scored 70 odd by that time. Finally Delhi had few smiles in the last ball before break , as they took Gilly out for 85 of just 35 balls.  But the Damage is already done, Deccans needed just 52 in last 10 overs. Symonds came to the place of Gilly, Inspired by gilly he played his array of shots before getting got at long on for 24. Suman and Rohit played a singles game to win the Semi’s comfortably and go into finals. DC winning the match by 6 wickets and 14 balls to spare. In the presentation Shewag said himself, its a day of gilly, and nothing went on their way… Yep Man , ur rite, Aussies ruled the show…

Bowling, least to write, shud mention two names, Amit Mishra and Dilshan, who did bowl really well for 7 overs between them,  kept economic rate below 5.00, which is really a gr8 task , when u have bowled to a most devastating innings played a devastating player.  Gilly showed the true class, and said , he as been in the two world cup winning finals before… With this magnificent Knock, he became the second top scorer of the tournament after Hayden. (A gr8 piece of advice to Australia, if u need to win this T20 world cup then here is the pair, which can win the matches with 10 wickets to spare, Serious man… Think Aussies…)

 

Interesting Facts on Day 35 , IPL 2:

Semi Finals 1:
– Gilchirst recorded the quickest 50 in just 17 balls in IPL. which is also the 5th fastest in T20 games.
– Gilchrist’s strike rate of 294.11 when reached his half century is the highest ever in IPL cricket while scoring a fifty. Previous best was combined held by Yusuf pathan and Brendon McCullum.
– 21 scored in the first over of Deccan’s innings, the second best in the tournament – Rajasthan had scored 22 against KKR.
– Gilchrist scored 70 runs in boundaries which is also the joint highest with Suresh Raina for a single innings in the IPL
– Gibbs scored his 4th duck today which is the most in the tournament by any player.
– With 5 sixes today, gilly has taken his total numbers in IPL to 48. (29 this year and 19 last year)
– This is also the first time Deccan’s have beaten Delhi in a IPL match in both seasons.
– Deccans have scored 2,111 runs in the league stage games, which is the highest in IPL 2.
– Opening pair of Gilly and Gibs have 505 runs in 14 innings, which is also the highest by any pair in IPL.
Its all one man stats seems to be…. sorry nothing i can do abt it… Hail Gilly….

IPL 2: Day 34 Review

May 22, 2009 at 1:04 am (IPL) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi Guys,

Its Day 34 in IPL Season 2… And also the final day for the league stage games…

Match 55:

Delhi Daredevils Vs Mumbai Indians

Not a very important game for both the teams,  Delhi will look to have a winning momentum before they get into semi’s. Mumbai will try to have a game for pride before they pack their bags. Shewag won the toss and decided to field first, Mumbai back with the traditional openers, Sanath and Sachin, but it didn’t last long, MI lost wickets in quick successions leaving 28/3 in 4.3 overs.  Then Skipper joined with rahane to build the innings and gor MI beond 100 run mark and got himself out, then nothing was so gr8 rest chipped with few numbers to name ending the innings with 165/8. Bowling, Nannes and Sangwan bowled really well to chip up with wickets.

match 55

Delhi seemed so cool right from the beginning, No panic at any stage, Back in form Shewag and Gambhir stirred the things up well for delhi and its in the end its a cake walk, In simple, delhi had a nice icing on the cake in the end of league matches. Shewag and Gambhir back in form, bowlers doing a fair job and everything is looking good for Semis 2maro. Bowling, cant really pick much, other than Bhajji who came close twice to pick up a Hat trick, other than that, its all just underwritten…. Finally delhi top the table with 4 wicket victory.

Match 56:

Royal Challengers Bangalore Vs Deccan Chargers

A fairly important game for RCB as they will keep an eye on the Net run rate and Deccans are more comfortable to get in at any cause. Kumble won the important toss and decided to Bat first,  Which is right, bcos u never want to have net runrate in mind and u go in for a chase. (finally u may end up exiting like south africa did in T20 world cup).  I think RCB have a curse on the no 7, this is 3rd time for them a wicket fell on 7, this time its Kallis, instead of Uthappa…  later Van de merwe and Manish Pandey carried the innings well with a reasonable scoring rate. The real show came, when the 19 year boy from Karnataka, went berserk against the bowlers, and went on to score the first T20 century by an Indian, this will be the best feeling for his life time. in the ned, few sixes from Virat Kohli helped RCB to get a score of 170/4 in 20 overs. Bowling, Except Ojha and Symonds, none seems to be impressive, Rp singh purple cap holder, went for plenty today especially in his last over he went for 23 runs, which was the big over of the match.

match 56

The equation was If DC wins the match in 11.1 overs, then RCB may lose out in Net run rate and KXIP can sneak in thru.

As always, deccan’s had a good start courtesy Gibbs, he scored at fast pace, and gilly kept knocking the singles around him,  finally gilly was out when he tried to pull a slower delivery of akhil,  score was 68/1 in 6.5 overs.  Things looked good, but RCB ensured they kept hunting down the wickets in the regular intervals, which didn’t allow DC’s for a stable chase, Bowling looked really good, Akhil and Jumbo picked couple each and rest bowled a decent ones to restrict DC’s. In the end, DC failed to reach the target by 12 runs, think back, how costly the last over of DC was…. U cant blame any1 now, finally its a unexpected and resurgent RCB making the way to 3rd place in table and will face Chennai a day after tomorrow in Semi finals 2.

IPL 2: Day 31 Review..CSK Vs KKR..

May 19, 2009 at 1:13 am (IPL) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi Guys…

Its 31st day in IPL 2.

Match 51:

Chennai Super Kings Vs Kolkata Knight Riders

A game which will help CSK to sit pretty in the semi’s spot, KKR again a game for pride, they game dead close to win the game but lost it in the mortaza’s over. Dhoni won the toss and decided to bat first. This is the first game between KKR and CSK as the previous game was washed out without even a ball being bowled.  Surprise, Man with Orange Cap, Hayden was given rest and George Bailey came into action in his place, (guess chennai thought KKR is an easy cake walk). Patel and Bailey had a solid start giving 60 runs in the power play overs. Just when things are looking good for patel, he has gone for a run out, then Bailey followed the same suit. But Raina and Dhoni was in no mood to relax, as they puched the ball with out any mercy, all over the fence, Raina made a effective 52 of 37 balls, before he skied a full toss ball to point fielder. Then after a long time Albie back in form hit some blistering shots, (man he got some power, good to see him back in form) for a cameo of 22*, which is also his best in this season. Bowling, nothing so specific worth mentioning as seen in the below picture. Dinda picked Raina tats all.

match 51

A out of form team chasing the highest score in IPL season 2 to win, No one would have dreamt abt it, (guess bet makers wud have made hell lot of money tonight). Yep, All of a sudden a man who is back in form McCullum fired up in cylinders took the attack to Chennai and balls where flying all over the park. no one to put the brake in shoes, on the other end, provided the hope for Chennai to win the match, playing 14 balls and scoring just 4. but Chennai luck ran out as he was out to murali, just clipping the bails. then in came Hodge, man, both know exactly what they have to do, and it did come for them today. Mishits didn’t carry r either went for sixes, all came together for them and another twist when McCullum was bowled(which was confirmed by Third umpire) again a ball clipping the stumps off, just like stumping.  But as we know fortune favors the brave, and it did, Saha took the strike without any fear and it came to them, Balaji bowled a worst over giving 19 runs in the 19th over, which signalled curtains for CSK, Raina bowled a super over in the end, but he had just 6 to defend, which was very tough and KKR tasted their first ever Victory in this season (remember last win came off D/L method against KXIP). KKR won the match by 7 wickets…

Bowling only Murali showed his class stuff, just conceding 16 in his 4 overs.  Which means KKR scored 173 in 16 overs, if u break down the innings of Dada, it further shortens to 169 in 13.4 overs, which means they scored at the rate of 12.31 to win the match.  (169 runs in 82 balls, excluding murali bowling and dada batting)…. Gr8 effort but i think KKR back in form for no use.  Hope they maintain till next season to get the roads to their way next year.

Finally good see, McCullum signing the ball once for Vodafone start of the match and smiling in the presentation ceremony. Overall finally a reason for SRK to smile…. 

Standings as on IPL 2 Day 31:

standings 31

Chennai eventhough they lost match, as of now, it seem they can certainly make it to semi’s even they lose the match against KXIP. 

How its possible:

Can take the worst scenario. Delhi losing both, still in top with 18, which means MI and RCB get 2 points each, CSK losing to KXIP, means KXIP with 16 points qualify for semis, CSK will remain in 15.  Rajasthan royals winning against KKR takes them also to 15 points, but as far as the net run rate is concern RR is in negative(-0.36), its not possible to get past Chennai who is well in positive(+0.93), which means they will be still ahead of RR’s. Now coming to last match , RCB Vs DC, both will be in 14 points in this stage, (provided RCB won the match against Delhi) , Who ever wins this match will go to semi’s.  Even if the match doesn’t happen both will get 1 point and it will be 15 all, even then, net runrate will take chennai into semi’s.

Think of a scenario, where RR can get in, by pulling RCB and DC. if RCB loses against delhi, they can’t qualify to semi’s, but if they defeat DC, it means both will still in be 14 points, which will allow RR to go to semi’s provided they have beaten KKR. 

Real fun comes, when RR loses, KXIP loses, RCB loses against delhi alone and Deccans lose. All KXIP, RCB and DC will be in 14 points, which means as of now, DC and RCB can qualify for semi’s with net runrate. 

Man, i guess i have did lots of calculations… Need to give some rest to my mind… Good night folks…

Interesting facts on Day 31 IPL 2:

Hell lot of portions topped for KKR in day 31…
– 189, Highest ever total in IPL 2, its also the highest T20 total in Supersports ground.
