Hi..

Been a gap in the IPL updates, heavy travel, troubled heath kept me away from the updates for a while. Happy to be back…

A very important game for Sunrisers to keep them in the hunt of Playoff’s position. Cameron white won the toss and decided to Bat first, and he would have thought a dreadful start even in dreams as SRH lost Dhawan, Parthiv & Cameron White for just 5 on the board. Vihari along with Samantray steadied a bit, before going for a skier. Sammy joined Samantray and scored very important 56 runs between them, Late strike from Perara made sure Sunrisers scored 136/9 in 20 overs. Bowling star was Faulkner who picked up his second 5 wickets haul against Sunrisers for the second time for this season. Chasing 130+ was never easy in the Hyderabad pitch and it proved to be again. Dravid had a good opening but apart from him everyone else struggled in the pitch. No one from Rajasthan got going, last minute rush from Kevon Cooper made sure Royals didn’t lose it big. In end Royals were strangled at 113/9 in 20 overs.  A Spell of 4-0-8-2 from Amit Mishra which proved too much for Royals in the end.

Sun Risers Hyderabad won the match by 23 runs…

PWI never looked like they are going to chase this score stated losing wickets in heaps, they lost top 4 in no time and 6 down in 9 overs summed up the whole game. Mohit Sharma bowled well to pick 3 crucial top order wickets. As always Steven Smith was the only man who tried to put a fight, but too much for him to handle.

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

April 28, 2013 at 11:58 pm (Cricket, IPL, IPL 2013, IPL 6) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

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…

IPL 5: Day 32 – Dwayne Smith & ABdV pull off nail biting HEISTS for home teams…

May 7, 2012 at 12:35 am (Cricket, IPL, IPL 2012, IPL 5) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

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…
