It was yet another super charged performance from the Deccan Chargers who came on top of the Mumbai Indians to register their 3rd consecutive victory. 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. Deccan Chargers lost 7 wickets for just 43 runs in their last 7 overs and could only manage 168, the same score that royal challengers had posted for kings 11 had won it with ease. Top scorer Gibbs was run out for a feisty 58.

Its Chargers night at CapeTown again :)

Cape town is proving to be lucky for Deccan Chargers unlike Hyderabad where they lost all the matches. The good part is that they have one match chasing and another batting first. By virtue of yesterday’s win Deccan Chargers are sitting pretty at the top of the table. That’s why I have always thought that history might have some effect but what matters is how you play that day and chargers are surely at the top of their game.

Hayden, Murali come good for Chennai Super Kings

It is not often that a world class spinner who has the world record for the most number of wickets is left out of the team. Chennai Super kings didn’t make that blunder again and it paid immediate dividends and Murali picked up the man of the match award. It was one way traffic from ball one…Hayden showed that he has not lost one bit of his batting prowess despite retiring from international cricket. It was a blazing knock from him which set the Bangalore Royal challengers on the back foot and they couldn’t recover from it though they pulled it back a little bit.
