DC prove to be too HOT for CSK

Chaminda Vaas It was the battle of South Giants between Deccan Chargers and Chennai Super Kings but once again it turned out to be a one sided affair as it always has been when these 2 teams have clashed . Before the game started the stats read – DC CSK DC CSK and hence this game was supposed to be DC’s game and it turned out to be that way. Vaas was the hero with the ball and all the big guns of DC fired setting up a huge total of 190.Not to forget the superb display of ground fielding from the Chargers which made the 191 target look like 210.

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.
