CSK destroy the Knights

The Chennai Super Kings as Sourav Ganguly walks back.Match 48: Ganguly lashing out at his team after losing to RCB a few days ago certainly didn’t do any good as Kolkata were thrashed by the Super Kings. The man who changed the face of Indian cricket a decade ago has been found wanting when it comes to ideas and with this loss his job is only going to get tougher. If the same show continues in the remaining 2 matches then you can be rest assured the KKR won’t be going into the semis for the 3rd time in IPL. It does not do any justice to the budding talent that they possess.

Rajasthan Royals Fortress gets stronger

Rajasthan Royals' batsman Naman Ojha in action during his superb knock against Chennai.Chennai Super Kings slumped to their 4th straight defeat as the Royals beat them by 16 runs to register their 4th straight win. After having made 177 thanks to a brilliant innings from Ojha who hit 80 from 49, the bowlers from the Royals responded well and survived a late onslaught from Chennai Super Kings to register their 10th win out of 11 matches at home. No wonder they call it a fortress.

CSK snatch defeat from the jaws of victory

Kings XI Punjab players surround Yuvraj and Irfan after their victory over Chennai Super Kings.Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Daredevils had already done it and on Sunday it was the turn of Chennai to Showcase their talent : Not just how to lose a match but lose it after managing to get it to Super Over which KKR and DD couldn’t do :D. They scripted their own loss and maybe next time when Priyadarshan(who had come to watch the match) makes a movie he can have his script written by the Chennai team. It would surely be a Box office hit just like how the TRP ratings must have sky rocketed for sure during this game. Kings XI won their first game of this IPL season and Preity Zinta was on cloud 9. It just goes to show T20 is not about flat wickets and 200 plus scores but even low scoring encounters can turn out to be humdingers and nobody is complaining or is anyone?? PHOTOS

What a tournament this has turned out to be. 2 teams which had finished at the bottom last year will now be fighting it out in the finals this year for the coveted trophy. Before the tournament started Delhi followed by Superkings were tipped to be the favourites but both have been outclassed in the semis. In today’s Semifinal Bangalore proved to be too good for the Superkings who were lacklusture in their performance. The Royal Challengers who were branded as a test team last year have won 6 in a row and look good to with the all important 7th one too.

It was a Do or Die match for the Royal Challengers if they had to keep their hopes of entering the semifinals alive. Set a modest 135 to chase, they lost Uthappa very early. Kallis and Dravid got together and they had a very good partnership of 70 of 69 balls. Dravid got out 2 overs after the strategic break leaving the Royal Challengers to get 8 runs per over for the rest of the 7 overs.Taylor came in and played a cameo of 25 runs of just 12 balls which included 3 6’s. That brought the rate down and Kallis Boucher got the Royals home with 1 over remaining. In the end it has to be said that Delhi has been experimenting a lot which might prove costly when it matters i.e. in the SemiFinals.

The Deccan Chargers grabbed a stunning Victory from the Jaws of defeat and the exact opposite holds for the Kolkata Knight Riders. They have been on the wrong side all this IPL and they had a wonderful chance to regain some lost pride and would have definitely if it was not for the last over. Needing 21 from the last over Rohit Sharma, the bowling all-rounder 😀 finally came good with the bat and got the Chargers home. It was a see saw battle with both the teams having their moments in the match but  when it mattered the most the Chargers kept their cool and are now just a win away from booking a berth in the Semifinals.
