Match Highlights

Mumbai Indians won by 39 Runs

Mumbai: Kieron Pollard’s late display of pyrotechnics set up a 39-run win for the Mumbai Indians over Delhi Daredevils at Brabourne here tonight.

The Daredevils began well with both David Warner and Virender Sehwag going after the bowling. But after a few lusty blows, Dilhara Fernando's slower one did the trick, getting rid of the Australian Warner. Sehwag seemed to have caught the Daredevils’ run-out bug and lost his wicket to a splendid piece of fielding by Pollard.

Gautam Gambhir had the responsibility of seeing Delhi to a victory, but was tricked by Harbhajan Singh to give an easy return catch.

After that, none of the Daredevils could counter Mumbai’s bowlers capitulating meekly, scoring 144 for seven in their allotted 20 overs.

Earlier, the Mumbai Indians got off to a steady start. There were no early fireworks as Sachin Tendulkar and his new opening partner Chandan Madan milked the Daredevils for the occasional boundary.

The Daredevils were disciplined in their bowling, keeping a tight line and length to deny the Mumbai batsmen any opportunities to really get going. Madan, playing his first match in IPL, tried to up the pace, but fell like so many Indian batsmen to a bouncer. Tendulkar was also getting frustrated at the other end and this led to him trying to clear the in-field in the 10th over only to find a fielder.

Mumbai’s middle-order mainstays - Ambati Rayudu and Saurabh Tiwary - did add a touch of excitement managing to score at a run-rate of nine an over before Tiwary was bowled by a beautiful slower delivery from Pradeep Sangwan.

Pollard hasn’t set the IPL on fire till date, but he took it upon him today to set the record straight. The tall Trinidadian brought an unseasonal shower – that of sixes – at the Brabourne with his lusty hitting. From 133 for four, when he walked in to join JP Duminy he attacked the Daredevils with five huge sixes to take the score to 183. Pollard’s pyrotechnics included a ‘Dilscoop’ off Ashish Nehra.

The last three overs saw MI score fifty runs, including 25 from the last over with Pollard going berserk and hitting Andrew McDonald for three massive on-side sixes.

Match Highlights

Ashwin, Raina star in Chennai win

Chennai: Suresh Raina hammered a 24-ball fifty and Ravichandran Ashwin ran through Kolkata Knight Riders’ top-order to hand over an easy win to Chennai Super Kings at the M A Chidambaram stadium here.

Raina (78 off 39 deliveries) and Murali Vijay (50 off 40 balls) remained unbeaten as MS Dhoni’s men chased down a modest total of 139 with nine wickets in hand in 13.3 overs.

Raina was in his element as he dominated the Kolkata bowlers from the word go. He smashed 11 fours and three hits over the ropes as the opposition looked helpless in the face of his brutal attack.

Chris Gayle gave Ganguly early hope by dismissing Matthew Hayden for naught but unfortunately for KKR, that was the only wicket to fall in the run chase.

Earlier, Ravichandran Ashwin devastated Kolkata Knight Riders’ top order getting all the big guns - Chris Gayle (7), Brendon McCullum (0) and David Hussey (0) - as the visitors failed to seize the initiative after winning the toss and electing to bat first.

Kolkata lost four wickets at a score of 19 within the fifth over with Ashwin (3/16) coming up with a dream spell.

Angelo Mathews survived Ashwin’s hat-trick ball to score an important innings of 48 to help the Kolkata Knight Riders recover after being reduced to 19-4.

Chris Gayle was the first player dismissed as the game got off to an unbelievable start. Having just hit spinner Ashwin for a six Gayle (7) came down the wicket only to miss the delivery and was stumped by MS Dhoni.

Having survived a plumb LBW shout, Brendon McCullum (0) was the next to go after he was caught by Muttiah Muralidaran.

SRK’s boys were dealt a crucial blow when in-form skipper Sourav Ganguly was adjudged LBW in the second over of Bollinger.

It was not over for Ashwin who returned to claim the wicket of David Hussey (0) stumped by Dhoni to claim his third wicket of the innings and set up a hat trick ball.

The delivery to Mathews was perfect and the batsman could only glove the ball through to short leg but unbelievably it was given not out by umpire Simon Taufel.

Mathews stitched an important partnership of 73 runs with Manoj Tiwary (27) to give the Knight Riders some hope before Suresh Raina struck to remove Tiwary.

Wriddhiman Saha lasted only two balls before he was brilliantly stumped by Dhoni as the Kinght Roders slumped to 98-6 in the space of 8 balls.

Laxmi Shukla enjoyed a cameo of 17 before Mathews’ innings came to an end in the 19th over as the Knight Riders reached 139-8.

Match Highlights

Banglore Wins the Royal Battle

Jaipur: The battle of the royals ended with the Royals from Bangalore scoring a comprehensive win over Rajasthan Royals by five wickets at Sawai Mansingh stadium here tonight.

The Rajasthan team seemed to have taken the field feeling blue and never looked as if they had recovered from their loss to the Mumbai Indians. The RCB bowlers dominated the initial proceeding and then Kevin Pietersen took over from where they left, giving fans another chance to witness his flair.

Royal Challengers Bangalore started the chase aware that a smallish target could be tricky and despite losing Jacques Kallis early never looked in trouble.

Kevin Pietersen, in the playing XI in place of the hard-hitting Cameron White, justified his inclusion with a sublime and chanceless half-century. His innings was an exhibition of timing so exquisite that the fielders could just stand still and look on in anguish as the boundaries were scored around them. His straight six off Shane Warne in the 11th over was a perfect example of his complete domination over the Rajasthan bowling.

Robin Uthappa (26) hit the ball crisply during his stay at the crease and seemed as if he, along with Pietersen, would finish off the game. But he got out early playing an overambitious reverse sweep against the wily Shane Warne.

As long as Pietersen was there in the middle, the pitch looked good and the RCB plan on course. Pietersen (62) ultimately did get out in the only way he could tonight - a run-out thanks to a silly mix-up with Virat Kohli that earned KP’s ire.

But Ross Taylor saw the team through hitting a six to finish off the game.

Earlier, Shane Warne’s decision to bat first went horribly wrong with the hosts losing three wickets inside the first three overs.

First Michael Lumb was run out after an awful mix-up with his opening partner Naman Ojha. Amit Paunikar, described by Warne as an Arvinda De Silva sort of player, didn’t get much of a chance with Kumble’s man Friday Vinay Kumar getting the debutant out for a golden duck. Ojha didn’t have time to make up for his mistake with Lumb – RCB’s debutant pacer Pankaj Singh snared the dangerous batsman.

The visitors’ disciplined bowling attack never allowed the Rajasthan team to get any kind of momentum and kept getting wickets at regular intervals. Shane Watson was just starting to time the ball when Kevin Pietersen took a splendid catch to stub Rajasthan chance of a good total.

And when Dale Steyn disturbed Yusuf Pathan’s timber, it looked as if Rajasthan were in danger of repeating their March 18 performance against Royal Challengers when they were all out for 92.

But an unbeaten 58-run partnership between Adam Voges (28) and Abhishek Raut (30) saw the hosts put up 130 for the visitors to chase.

Match Highlights

Daredevils stun Super Kings in Chennai

Chennai: In a match where the ball did all the talking, it was Gautam Gambhir’s batting that helped Delhi Daredevils defeat Chennai Super Kings by six wickets at Chepauk here tonight.

The pitch helped the bowlers, be it the pacers to start with or the spinners after that, but Delhi managed to overhaul the modest target thanks to a fighting innings from a tired-looking Gambhir.

The Delhi Daredevils’ innings started in an even more dramatic fashion with the visitors losing three wickets before one could even realise the chase had begun.

The first to fall was David Warner off the bowling of R Ashwin. Then Doug Bollinger struck twice to get rid of Virender Sehwag and then Tillakaratne Dilshan. The scoreboard read 6 for three after 1.4 overs and Delhi were in danger of repeating their spectacular debacle against Kings XI Punjab. Especially after Dinesh Karthik fell in the 7th over, it looked as if Chennai had scripted an amazing recovery.

But Gambhir (57*) played a captain’s knock to rescue the drowning Delhi Daredevils and actually resuscitate his team’s chances of making the semis. Gambhir didn’t play his best knock, but most certainly one of the most important one in his IPL career.

Scoring a half-century on a pitch assisting the bowlers and where the second highest score in the entire match was fighting 30 speaks volumes about the DD skipper’s resolve after his team’s embarrassing loss to KXIP.

Mithun Manhas (25*) provided able support to his captain to see the team through till the end.

The bowlers swung the game in the Daredevils’ favour with some well-directed short-pitched deliveries and spin.

Delhi would have had the perfect start had skipper Gautam Gambhir latched on a chance from Matthew Hayden in the first over itself. But Hayden couldn’t capitalise on the opportunity – he was dismissed thanks to an easy catch taken by Paul Collingwood off Nehra’s bowling.

MS Dhoni came in early, but left as early, unable to control an Ashish Nehra bouncer. Nehra struck again with his bouncer to get rid of the dangerous Murali Vijay in the fourth over.

With the scorecard reading 23 for three, what Chennai needed was a partnership. But Michael Hussey and Suresh Raina failed to convert their starts into anything substantial. The duo got out in successive overs. Dilshan, back in the squad, got Raina to play a lofted shot for the deep cover fielder to take the catch. Hussey then was unable to keep the ball down and left with the Chennai innings in disarray.

The Delhi spinners were in complete control throughout the game gobbling up CSK wickets at regular intervals. It was S Badrinath’s (30) innings that helped Chennai Super Kings reach 112. But he couldn’t stay till the end either resulting in a meagre – and ultimately losing - total for the hosts.

IPL 51:DC vs KXIP-Deccan Chargers won by 5 Wickets

Match Highlights

Deccan charges into Kings' bastion

Dharamsala: Rohit Sharma stormed Kings XI Punjab’s hilly bastion to power Deccan Chargers to a five-wicket victory over the hosts here tonight.

There was a danger of the rains ruining the night with a forecast predicting showers, thankfully it didn't rain. But the idyllic location did see a downpour - that of sixes from the bat of Sharma. The explosive middle-order bat seemed to have learnt from his experience against Rajasthan Royals and played intelligently to see his team through.

Sharma’s innings (68) was made up of precision timing, judicious power hitting and also running those precious singles and twos. He never seemed to be worried and despite losing partners at the other end, Sharma didn’t panic or play any rash shots.

The Maharashtra lad’s six in the 19th over that just eluded a fully stretched Piyush Chawla decided the game. And then B Sumanth completed the formalities by hitting a boundary in the last over.

The Deccan Chargers had earlier lost their skipper early again. His partner Mohnish Mishra soon joined him after a brief little cameo. This brought together T Suman and Sharma and the duo set off like an express train with each trying to outdo the other’s big hitting. Unfortunately, Suman (43) nicked a Piyush Chawla delivery for Adam Gilchrist to pouch it.

Earlier, the in-form Ryan Harris struck early getting rid of Shaun Marsh in the very first over for a golden duck. The early departure of the KXIP opener though denied cricket lovers the opportunity to see an interesting contest: Shaun facing his younger brother Mitchell’s bowling.

Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara didn’t let the early wicket affect them attacking the Chargers with aplomb. But the bowlers, who were getting appreciable bounce and swing from the helpful pitch, would feel unlucky at not having got a nick despite making the two batsmen play and miss regularly.

The Sri Lankan duo rode their luck, with Jayawardene being dropped when he was on 21 and then again in the 16th over the culprit both times being Rahul Sharma. Sangakkara (52) scored a quick-fire half-century. But he couldn’t quite kick on, getting out to an overambitious reverse sweep against leggie Rahul Sharma.

Jayawardene, on the other hand, took full advantage of his lifeline scoring freely with boundaries galore and a couple of sixes. His unbeaten 93 being the chief contribution towards the team total of 174.

Match Highlights

Deccan Chargers displayed no urge to win- Kolkata on High Tide

Bengaluru: The Mumbai Indians juggernaut rolled on for one more game continuing their reign over the points table of IPL 2010.

In a return match at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium here against hosts Royal Challengers Bangalore, Mumbai Indians turned in a solid all-round team effort.

The Mumbai Indians added two more points to their tally with a confidence-boosting win in preparation for the semi-finals. For the hosts, the loss by 57 runs meant that they needed to watch the results of the other fixtures with a lot of interest.

Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Anil Kumble seemed to have got it right with his call to field first. His strike bowler Dale Steyn bowled a mean spell, but the other bowlers did not back up the fast bowler.

Set to chase Mumbai Indians’ target of 191-4, the Royal Challengers Bangalore innings never took off.

Kieron Pollard’s spell of 3-28, complemented by Dilhara Fernando (2-24) and Harbhajan Singh (2-29) helped Mumbai Indians win by a massive margin.

For the home team, the fall of Jacques Kallis early on put pressure on the line-up. The middle-order crumbled as the asking rate mounted and the big-hitters like Robin Uthappa just could not turn it on.

Earlier, the Mumbai Indians innings was built around a team effort as the batsmen contributed massively to the total.

Ambati Rayudu weighed in with 46 off 27 balls with three fours and four sixes. Rayudu and Sachin Tendulkar’s newest opening partner, Ryan McLaren, shared a crucial 69-run second wicket stand.

This alliance propelled Mumbai Indians to a strong base from where the strikers could use the long handle to good effect.

That’s exactly what happened as Kieron Pollard walked in and slammed sixes at will. Pollard scored a dramatic 20 off 7 balls with three successive sixes (6, 6, 6) off a Pankaj Singh over.

Then it was up to Jean Paul Duminy to provide the late flourish. The South African left-hander dictated terms to the Royal Challengers during his crucial stay at the crease. Duminy made 42 off 19 balls with three fours and three sixes.

The Duminy charge right at the end of the innings added meat to the Mumbai Indians innings and pushed the score just beyond the Royal Challengers’ reach.

In the end it was Tendulkar who walked away with the Orange Cap, leaving Kallis to chase him in the semi-finals if his team make it there.

Match Highlights

Dada keeps Kolkata hopes alive

Kolkata: With a full house at an under-construction Eden Gardens, Shah Rukh Khan and the entire Bollywood clan in full attendance, the stage was set for something special.

Sourav Ganguly provided just that as he played a captain’s innings to lead Kolkata Knight Riders to a famous win over Rajasthan Royals.

Ganguly teamed up with Cheteshwar Pujara to help set-up an eight-wicket win over Rajasthan Royals who have now been eliminated from the tournament’s third season. This was the biggest win for Kolkata Knight Riders in terms of balls and wickets to spare.

Kolkata Knight Riders chased down Rajasthan Royals’ modest target of 132 in the 17th over. Ganguly (75: 50b, 11x4, 2 x6) and Pujara (45: 38b, 5x4, 1x6) added 111 runs for the third wicket.

After Brendon McCullum (promoted to open) and Chris Gayle fell in the same over to Kamran Khan, the task seemed onerous for the hosts.

But Ganguly and Pujara played in a measured way as the crowds kept cheering them on. In the end the home team won on a canter, with one eye on the crowded points table which keeps opening up every night.

But that’s not what Shane Warne had hoped for when he opted to bat first. Rajasthan Royals failed to capitalise on a brisk opening stand between new opener Shane Watson and Naman Ojha.

The partnership was worth 59, with Watson batting as if in a hurry (44: 26b, 7x4, 1x6). But after Watson fell, the middle-order did not offer much resistance.

The middle-order fell trying to increase the scoring rate as Ganguly applied the brakes with smart bowling changes.

Young left-arm paceman Jaidev Unadkat was the best on view with a spell of 3- 26. Ashoke Dinda (2-24), Shane Bond (1-20) bowled tight spells to stifle the Royals innings.

The Knight Rider’ fielding, or rather the catching, was probably the difference between the two sides.

Ganguly again led the way with a Karbonn Kamaal catch - Unadkat, Gayle backed him up. That was enough to cheer up Shah Rukh Khan and the entire celebrity enclosure.

For Warne and Co. the match was the end of the IPL 2010 dream. The side which looked to turn things around at key moments bowed out of the tournament and their captain was a disappointed man at the end of the capitulation to the Knight Riders.

But for the home team, there’s still a chance of making it to the semis and going by today’s performance, dada is very much in the hunt.
