Who says T20 is all about big score, raining sixes??? Even Low Scoring contests can be exciting ones as it turned out to be in the match between Rajasthan Royals and Kings 11 Punjab. The match started on time in Capetown which presented a completely different picture. It was bright sunny afternoon compared to the gloomy rainy day yesterday. Kings 11 won the toss and elected to bat. It was not bright thought for them with Karan goel getting run out without facing a ball. Bopara who was the man of the match last time failed this time getting out to Kamran khan who bowled a wonderful spell of 4 overs for just 15 runs and took 2 wickets. It was Sangakara’s 60 and Irfan’s 39 which got Kings 11 to 139 which was below par. It was a great to see the contest between the two Pathan brothers with Irfan getting better of his older bro.

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.

I couldn’t see the match between KKR and Kings 11 Punjab because I was out but watched the highlights. Every one was happy that IPL was being played in South Africe but rain is playing spoilsport in almost all the matches that have been played till now with 2 matches being decided on D/L method and one match totally washed out
