Maxertainment 3: DC back in winning form

Dhoni and co has a powerful and explosive players in his hut. Gilly retains the same team as in the first match.

Deccan Chargers wins the toss and choose to bat first…

GILLY ON A SONG

It was one day when everyone looks excited. Thats when Gilly is on a song. Don’t forget his superb IPL 1 in which he his a superb century. It was almost the same. This time his hit list was poor lad Sudeep Tyagi and Albie Morkel. He cruised with fours and sixes. When I tell this I remember the splendid six off deep covers. Just awesome. Albie Morkel too yielded a lot of runs. So, when the pacers got thrashed, Dhoni opted for spin in the powerplayers.

SPINNERS GET THE GAME ALIVE

When Dhoni threw the ball to Murali, the experienced Spin Veteran his job was first of all take Gilly’s wicket and then concede less runs. He tried his bet and only gave away 6 runs off his over. Next, Dhoni turned to Ravi Ashwin who got thrashed for fours in the beginning but in his 5th ball struck timber. Gilly was disappointed as the ball edged his bat and hit the wicket. The very next ball, the slow poke Laxman was run out with a beautiful fielding by Suresh Raina. CSK looked they are back in the game after Gilly Blitskreig. Now, it was the experience of Gibbs and Symonds to take them to a high total. They did so. Symonds and Gibbs scored some sixes and fours and kept the rate steady. But, they couldn’t cope it till the final over as both Gibbs and Symonds got run out (45 and 50 runs). Dhoni made a blunder as he opted Tyagi to bowl the last over and he got thrashed and yielded 22 taking the total to 190.

BAD START FOR CSK

Everyone expected a lot from Hayden with his Mongoose bat. But, the Old Fox Chaminda Vaas did not let it to happen. Gilly gave a surprise to all as he opted to bowl Rohit Sharma but Hayden was happiest with that and hit him out of the park. Vaas did not let the CSK team for a good start as he got rid of Murali Vijay. Raina came in at No.3 and had a job in his hands to rebuild the damage. But, after the shot he struck for a shot, he misjudged one and hit it back to Gilly.

Game was not over yet for the Chennaians as they had a deep batting order. Hayden started to power at RP Singh. But, again the Old fox came to the rescue. Hayden tried to hit one to fine leg boundary but with Vaas bowling at a snail pace, he got out. Game was a cliff hanger now. Any chance was possible.

CSK FALL SHORT

Justin Kemp and Dhoni tried to consolidate the innings right from the moment go. They tried to hit newbie Jaskaran Singh. But, with the slow track of Chennai and Rohit Sharma and Ojha flighting the ball, it became a mere impossible to achieve the target. The team were restricted to their spin. First Kemp fell to Ojha’s flight, next Dhoni got out. There was nothing that poor boy Albie could do. Match closed for Chennai with 31 runs short.
