Match Highlights

Suman, Symonds script another win for Deccan

Nagpur: Tirumalasetti Suman slammed a second successive half-century to lead Deccan Chargers to some cheer at home in IPL 2010.

Suman's calm approach guided again by the experience of Andrew Symonds led the home team to their second win on the trot after five straight losses.

Suman's knock ensured that Deccan Chargers did not falter at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium here. Symonds did a good job of mentoring the young batsman and then kept his calm himself as Deccan romped home in style by seven wickets.

The Deccan Chargers’ win opened up the points table in IPL 2010, with four teams tied at the same spot.

Set to chase Chennai Super Kings' score of 138-8, Deccan Chargers began shakily. Deccan Chargers had slipped to 35-2 and then 61-3, but Suman (55: 44b, 4x4, 2x6) held his nerve and controlled the chase.

Chennai Super Kings off-spinner R Ashwin seemed to have set-up his side for an unlikely win with a spell of 2-13. But Suman held firm as he was joined by Symonds at a crucial stage of the chase.

Suman's half-century overshadowed Chennai Super Kings' Suresh Raina who held the innings earlier in the day. Raina (52: 44b, 4x4, 2x6) was the only bright spot in the batting effort for Chennai Super Kings after they chose to bat first.

Deccan Chargers were well served by Ryan Harris' spell of 3-18, which dented the top and middle-order of Chennai Super Kings. All the other bowlers from Deccan Chargers backed up Harris’ effort with the ball.

On the slower surface at Nagpur, the Chennai Super Kings batsmen struggled to come to terms with the 22 yards. Chennai Super Kings lost wickets at regular intervals and the only spark was provided by Raina. The left-handed Raina had no support from the rest of the line-up.

Thankfully for the Chargers, the fall of wickets in their chase was countered by the experience of an unbeaten Symonds. Symonds (27: 22b, 1x4, 2x6) ensured that the chase of 139 was as tame as the target itself.

The win brought more cheer to the Deccan Chargers camp and kept their hopes of a semi-final place alive.
