Full Match: IPL 2010 MATCH59 - RCB vs DC, 2010-04-24

Match Highlights

DC surrender meekly to RCB

Navi Mumbai: In what was the most lopsided contest of IPL 2010, the Royal Challengers Bangalore team defeated Deccan Chargers by 37 runs here tonight to make it to the Champions League T20 tournament.

DC scored a feeble 82, IPL 2010’s lowest total, which illustrated the lack of competition that Royals faced. Chasing such a small target is hardly enough to raise a sweat and the Bangalore boys managed to achieve their target with 37 balls to spare.

Jacques Kallis and Rahul Dravid set about chasing the target with cool confidence. But Kallis departed without having seen the side through. Kevin Pietersen and Dravid finished the job without any more hiccups.

The slow track was helpful for bowlers, but that wasn’t the reason for the Deccan team’s abysmal performance - it was the indiscipline in DC’s batting that helped RCB win. Anil Kumble with his four-for led from the front for RCB. Though Kumble was the star with the ball, his brothers-in-arms - Praveen Kumar, Jacques Kallis and Dale Steyn – who were equally responsible in bundling out DC with their impressive line and length.

Earlier, Adam Gilchrist was forced to make four crucial changes to the squad with injury ruling out T Suman, Herschelle Gibbs, RP Singh and B Sumanth. And the changes left the team too weak to even put up a decent fight.

Before you could list out the names of the Deccan Chargers’ squad, the Chargers had lost four wickets. First to go was the woefully out-of-form DC skipper Adam Gilchrist. He hit a full toss off his counterpart Anil Kumble down the throat of deep square leg.

Then next to depart was Monish Mishra - LBW to a fullish delivery from Praveen Kumar. Rohit Sharma tried to hit his way out of trouble but only found Kevin Pietersen, who took an easy catch to dismiss the dangerous batsman.

And then came the killer blow. In the seventh over Andrew Symonds, dropped off the previous delivery, wasted his chance to hand Dale Steyn his wicket.

DC’s two new recruits for this game - Anirudh Singh and Venugopal Rao – came together to try and make a fight of the game. The duo combined to score 43 runs with Singh hitting some lusty blows. But as was the case throughout the innings, Singh played one shot too many and got out. The complete domination of the RCB bowling is apparent from the fact that only Singh and Rao were the batsmen to reach double figures.

Royal Challengers Bangalore’s superb bowling display allowed them to restrict Deccan Chargers to 82 - the lowest total of IPL 2010.

With this comprehensive victory, RCB join IPL 2010 finalists Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings in the Champions League Twenty20 tournament set to take place in September.
