Match Highlights

Super Kings reign over the Chargers

Navi Mumbai: Focus, conviction and clinical precision saw the Chennai Super Kings defend a paltry total and defeat Deccan Chargers here tonight by 38 runs.

Doug Bollinger bowled with the kind of fervour that is required to defend a small total. His four-for was the foundation on which the Super Kings built their victory tower. He was ably supported by the CSK spinners Shadab Jakati and R Ashwin.

Not even their staunchest supporters would have believed CSK had a chance to get back into the game after scoring 142, but an inspired bowling display, some desperation in the field and some brilliant field placements saw the Chennai squad make it into the IPL final.

Adam Gilchrist seemed to be rediscovering his touch but a fine catch by Anirudha Srikkanth off the bowling of Doug Bollinger sent the DC captain back to the dug-out. Bollinger struck again to send back the Chargers’ in-form batsman T Suman and have DC floundering at 23 for 2 after the Powerplay.

Rohit Sharma had to try and up the run-rate and Albie Morkel got his wicket making him mis-time a lofted shot. Herschelle Gibbs and Monish Mishra soon followed Sharma and the Chargers’ charge looked to have fizzled out even before it began.

With half the side gone with just 54 on the board, it was up to Andrew Symonds to rescue his team and take them into the final. But once Ashwin claimed his wicket as he was trying to clear the field, it was game over for the Deccan Chargers.

Earlier, MS Dhoni’s decision to bat first on a green and bouncy track backfired with the Chennai side unable to counter the dual threats of seam movement and bounce.

The Gods seemed to be smiling on Matthew Hayden and giving him not one but two lifelines. First RP Singh dropped a simple chance off the CSK opener and then B Sumanth at gully gave Hayden another chance. But Hayden didn’t seem interested in staying out there and gave an easy catch to Andrew Symonds off the bowling of Ryan Harris.

Harris was in the thick of things and claimed the second CSK wicket of Murali Vijay. Suresh Raina soon joined the CSK openers in the dug-out.

S Badrinath and MS Dhoni tried their hardest to rescue the sinking CSK ship and their 52-run partnership went some way in saving Chennai the embarrassment of scoring the lowest total in an IPL semi-final.

But first Dhoni (30) and then Badrinath (37) departed without really setting the stadium on fire - the Super Kings were tottering at the precipice of a dismal total at the stage. But a late charge by Anirudha Srikkanth saw Chennai to a respectable total of 142 for seven.

The Deccan bowlers stuck to a good line and length, extracted bounce and generally managed to rein in the Super Kings with Ryan Harris and Andrew Symonds being the only real performers.
