Match Highlights

RCB fail to hold nerve in low-scorer

Nagpur: Harmeet Singh’s slower ones turned lethal for Royal Challengers Bangalore as they faltered chasing a modest total of 151 and fell short by 13 runs in the crucial tie at the VCA stadium in Nagpur on Monday night.

Anil Kumble’s men made heavy weather of the target and were dismissed for 138 runs in the last over.

Harmeet turned the match on its head when he clean bowled Robin Uthappa with Bangalore requiring 18 runs off 12 balls.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore run chase started off on a dismal note as Ryan Harris delivered the perfect first ball which Manish Pandey worked straight to Adam Gilchrist.

Jacques Kallis was joined at the crease by Rahul Dravid and the pair saw off the remaining 5 balls of Harris’ over before they started the recovery.

Dravid played an uncharacteristic innings of 49 from just 35 balls as the Royal Challengers Bangalore looked to make it an easy affair. The partnership of 74 was ended by Andrew Symonds who picked up the key wicket of Dravid, but with but 8 wickets in hand, the Royal Challengers were still in control of the game needing another 78 runs from 58 balls.

After the loss of Dravid, Anil Kumble’s men were happy to score at a run a ball as the game drifted through a quite period until Jacques Kallis (27), Ross Taylor (1) and Virat Kohli (3) were dismissed.

RP Singh became the first bowler in the Indian Premier League to claim 50 wickets when he dismissed Cameron White on 1. The left-armer registered figures of 4-0-21-2.

Pragyan Ojha got the wickets of Kallis and Kohli to finish with outstanding figures of 4-0-22-2.

Uthappa smashed Harris for two huge sixes in the 17th over to keep Bangalore on track. With two overs to go, the Royals Challengers needed just 18 more runs to all but guarantee their place in the knock-out stages. But the Chargers struck back with Harmeet Singh who picked up two wickets in the space of two balls to remove Uthappa (34) and Dale Steyn (0), setting up the victory for the defending champs.

Earlier, Dale Steyn wreaked havoc on Deccan Chargers' top-order, dismissing Adam Gilchrist off the fourth ball of the innings. The South Arican recruit then sent the in-form T Suman back to the pavilion off the very first ball he faced, a short pitched one.

The pacer bowled one into the body of Suman, who lobbed an easy catch to Ross Taylor at backward short-leg.

Vinay Kumar, at the other end, snared Herschelle Gibbs, but Taylor dropped a relatively easy chance. Steyn cleaned up Gibbs with a peach of a delivery to reduce Chargers to 14 for three.

It was left to the youngsters – Rohit Sharma (51) and Mohnish Mishra (41) - to put on 82 crucial runs to revive the innings. The duo played sensible cricket, mixing caution and aggression to step up the run-rate.

In the 11th over, when Rohit smashed Jacques Kallis for a hat-trick of boundaries, RCB looked in full control. Monish ran himself out just when the going was good, giving the visiting team a lucky breakthrough.

Rohit posted a half century and was well-supported by Andrew Symonds before the latter was brilliantly stumped by Uthappa off Kumble.

Ryan Harris used the long handle to propel Deccan Chargers to 151 for six wickets in 20 overs.
