Hi…

Eliminator it is as the name sounds, Team who loses today will get a knockout blow for this season, Winner will meet Mumbai in Kolkata for the Qualifier 2.

Sunrisers Won the toss and decided to bat first, Not off to a ideal start lost their inform opener Parthiv & Vihari cheaply as the scoreboard read 2 for 3 in 2.3 overs. Dhawan & White played the restructuring innings with a fifty partnership between both, but it came very slowly which help Royals to keep their nose ahead at all point. However Sammy gave the much needed impetus to up the scoring rate, but it was halted by one of the superp runout from the deep. Few lusty blows from Perara & Samantray helped SRH to post yet another 130+ score, 132/7 in 20 overs.

Royals will know its a tricky chase always especially with SRH bowling’s fire power. Dravid started of confidently scoring three boundaries before leading edged to point. Watson continued from where Dravid left, kept the run rate moving with few powerful blows over fence and to fence. However SRH came back strongly by picking one wicket in every over from 7-10. Which meant Royals are 57/5 in 10 overs. Samson & Hodge in the crease. Both played a singles innings for a while, Once Hodge felt he had his Eye in, he started going for shot which proved vital to keep the run rate under check at all time. Once you think game sailing towards Royals, Came Steyn to remove Samson. But Hodge & Faulkner in the the crease made sure they are crossing the line safely. It is Hodge in the end who hit the winning runs with two back to back sixes and making a mockery Pacifier. Underdogs now has two more steps to be the champs…

Rajasthan Royals won the match 4 wickets with 4 balls to spare…

IPL 6: Wright’s last rites & Parthiv’s fab puts SRH in playoff’s…

May 19, 2013 at 11:40 pm (Cricket, IPL, IPL 2013, IPL 6) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi..

Last two league games of this season of IPL 6. Both are important in their own ways, One game will decide who is going to be the wooden spooners and the other to decided the final entrant for the playoff’s.

Game 1, Who will be the wooden spooner’s…? Delhi or Pune, both lock horn for the one last time for this season. Finch won the toss and decided to bat first, Uthappa departed early but skipper stayed for bit more long to get himself a fifty in 34 balls. How ever star was Luke wright who gave the electric finish to sedated Pune’s innings with 23 ball 44 runs. Pune finished with their best home score 172/5 in 20 overs.  What to write about Delhi’s batting except for one thing, that they definitely played like a team who is going out with a wooden spoon. Dismal and sad effort from a prolific batting composition. Pathan & Gautam played for some time to improve their career runs. In the end Delhi finished at 134/9 in 20 overs.

Pune Warriors India won the match by 38 runs… 

Game 2, Last league game and a very important game as to decide the final team to enter the playoff’s. Sunrisers need to win to enter the playoff’s, if they lose RCB will sneak through for the eliminator match against Rajasthan. Gambhir won the toss and decided to bat first, both Bisla & Gambhir started off very slowly and it continued to be the trend as they never got going even at the latter stages Yusuf pathan once again played a handy knock of 49 runs of 29 balls to get a decent score of 130/7 in 20 overs. Sunrisers on the other hand started off blazing with Parthiv & Dhawan both firing in their ends. A good partnership of 89 runs came to end with a needless reverse sweep from Dhawan. Suddenly panic button was pressed in SRH camp as they lost other 3 wickets on a trot. Sammy’s playing out a maiden of Narine & Perara yorked by Shami Ahmed made even more tensed game for SRH. However T20 wold cup winning captain Darren Sammy made sure the win came from two consecutive sixes of Iqbal Abdulla to make Sunrisers to get into Playoff’s in their very first season.

Sun Risers Hyderabad won the match by 5 wickets with 7 balls to spare…

IPL 6: Day 45– Amit Mishra helps Sunriser’s to set one foot on Playoff’s…

May 17, 2013 at 11:39 pm (Cricket, IPL, IPL 2013, IPL 6) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

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…

May 9, 2013 at 1:38 am (Cricket, IPL, IPL 2013, IPL 6) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi…

As expected Chennai became the first team to qualify for the play offs. Sun risers won the toss and decided to field first. But Sanga’s decision to bowl first was good for just first 6 balls. Murali Vijay then took Ishant for hat trick of sixes. Later he departed, Hussey & raina displayed a subliminal form of batting. A pleasure it was when Raina was striking it exactly in the covers of off side where field will not be able to get too. Raina finished the innings with a boundary and left stranded in 99*. CSK scoring a mammoth 223/4 in 20 overs.. Sunrisers never looked like chasing at any point of time, Dhawan was the man who could have pulled out some miracles but spot on Dhoni removed him cheaply, later it was a procession and CSK sealed the deal as the time passed.

IPL 6: Day 29– Ishant’s Spell & Warner’s fifty helps to cross the line…

May 2, 2013 at 12:41 am (Cricket, IPL, IPL 2013, IPL 6) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

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…

Hi…

Double Header Weekend is back…

First Game, Rajasthan made it much more simpler than I could right here… Faulkner, Chandila & Cooper bowled excellently to reduce SRH to 29/6 in 6 overs after choosing to bat first. Just when they thought SRH may not even cross fifty, Thanks again to Mishra & Darren Sammy who played the game of his life to bring them back in game with his hard fought 60 runs. SRH finished at 144 runs, more than they should have actually got for a kind of start they had. Rahane didn’t make much impression but Skipper & Binny played a supporting role to One Man Army Watson to score 98* blistering runs to win the match in ease.

Rajasthan Royals won the match by 8 wickets with 13 balls to spare…

Second game, If i just said first was no contest, this was quite a contest till Gayle was dismissed, then one word Dismal… Mumbai started off with a blast, Pollard, Karthik & Bhajji in the end made sure Mumbai got to a highest score against RCB 194 runs in 20 overs. Then began the real Battle, walked in the Predator with his heavy swing arms, but Mitchell Johnson & Malinga were on par with their bowling skills to keep him in the Bay, But it was the Turbanator who picked up the Predator. Once he left, procession followed and in the end 8th wicket partnership between Ravi Rampaul & Vinay Kumar reduced the deficit by 51 run partnership, which made sure RCB went on to lose their 3 away game as well.

Mumbai Indians won the match by 58 runs…

IPL 6: Day 23–Captain Cool does it again & again & again for CSK…

April 26, 2013 at 12:41 am (Cricket, IPL, IPL 2013, IPL 6) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi…

Its a typical CSK screenplay written game for Chennai Ground. Opposition has a bad start, then in the death CSK bowlers will lose the plot to concede more runs in  last, then CSK follows up with a blistering opening partnership, Few quite overs and fall of wickets at wrong time, take the required run rate up to 12 runs per over possible even higher, then as always there will be Captain Cool who will finish the match in the last over with a hit to fence.

Nothing much changed, Sunrisers got to a poor start as they were 61/4 in 10 overs, then late surge by Dhawan & Ashish Reddy made sure SRH scored 159/6 in 20 overs. CSK with the help of Hussey & Vijay got a start of 65 runs in 7 overs. Then came the quite overs and fall of wickets of Hussey, Raina & Bravo. Required run rate was close to 12 runs when Bravo was out, As per the script Dhoni stayed till the end to finish the match with a six & followed it by couple of boundaries to win the match for CSK.

Chennai Super Kings won the match by 5 wickets with 2 balls to spare…

– Karan Sharma’s spell of 4-1-8-0 is the most economical spell bowled for this season.
