This has to be the best match of this IPL season. We have had a match involving a super over and so many low scoring close contests but this one was different .It was a high scoring thriller and you could hardly choose between the two teams in the end but as there has to be a looser and a winner in every game,the Super Kings held their nerves in the end and emerged victorious.

Bad fielding, Bad Umpiring or just Bad Luck, Nothing seems to be going KKR way. Yet again they got the game close but were not good enough to be on the right side. Set a modest 154 to chase kings the kings got off to a bad start with Sangakkara skying one and was wonderfully caught by the wicketkeeper for a golden duck. But that was the only bit of fielding which KKR would be happy about .

It was the first time that Yuvraj fired not just with the bat but was brilliant with the ball taking the first hatrick of the IPL season and Kings 11 lost. Cricket is not about one man show but a team game. If one man fires and the rest fail it is of no use and it was proved right yet again.Maybe it was a reminder from God for Zinta that if you dont exercise your vote then you and your team will have to suffer đŸ˜›

All good things have to come to an end and so did the chargers 4 match winning streak but not without a fight though from the chargers. Sehwag won the toss and put the chargers into bat. For the first in the tournament both the openers got out cheaply to the pacy left armer Nannes. The chargers scored 55 for the loss of 4 wickets in 10 overs..There was a complete momentum shift after the strategic timeout which saw the powerful Dwayne smith hitting boundaries at will. His knock of 48 from just 28 balls got the chargers 148 in their allotted 20 overs. I thought they were short by 10 to 15 runs.

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.
