Did you know that Internet has completed 40 years in existence?? I would be surprised if you knew that. We may be hooked to social networking sites or used to seeing goofy videos these days but that was not on the minds of Len Kleinrock and his team at UCLA when they began experiments, laying the foundation of what later would become Internet.The researchers just wanted to create an open network to share information and this very openness went onto spur innovation that would later spur the likes of Youtube, Facebook & WWW.

Apparently they had won only 2 matches last IPL and this time they have won 3 in 3..Deccan Chargers batted first and Gilchrist was at his best yet again smashing boundaries and they quickly raced to 50 in 6 overs. But just when it was looking all good for the chargers Gilchrist got out chasing a wide one from Bravo. Dwayne Smith who was in for styris came out to bat and started aggressively. He too got out after scoring 35 of just 22 balls and the score was 124/2 in 13 overs. 200 was well on the cards but what happened afterwards was t otally unbelievable.

Top scorer Gibbs was run out for a feisty 58. Read more... (381 words, 1 image, estimated 1:31 mins reading time)
