Deccan Chargers won by 24 runs
Played at Newlands, Cape Town (neutral venue)
22 April 2009 - day/night match (20-over match)

Kumar to Gibbs, OUT, he's given him! PK pitches it full on middle and leg stump, Gibbs is late on the attempted flick across the line and umpire Sahiba raises his finger in a flash ... replays show the ball was hitting leg stump

HH Gibbs lbw b Kumar 13 (7b 1x4 1x6) SR: 185.71

Deccan Chargers 46/1   AC Gilchrist 27* (16b 5x4 1x6)   P Kumar 1.5-0-19-1

Ryder to Laxman, OUT, and he strikes first ball, what a guy! Pitches it up and Laxman drives on the rise but he doesn't get all the elevation needed and picks out a tumbling Steyn running in from long-off, diving forward and then holding the ball as he trips

VVS Laxman c Steyn b Ryder 5 (10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Deccan Chargers 66/2   AC Gilchrist 42* (26b 6x4 2x6)   JD Ryder 0.1-0-0-1

Pietersen to Gilchrist, OUT, well taken there! KP tosses it up wide, Gilchrist drives hard and flat but Virat Kohli intercepts it at short extra cover with a lovely leaping catch high to his left

AC Gilchrist c Kohli b Pietersen 71 (45b 6x4 5x6) SR: 157.77

Deccan Chargers 127/3   RG Sharma 29* (17b 1x4 3x6)   KP Pietersen 1.1-0-4-1

Pietersen to Styris, OUT, caught PK, bowled KP! Another big swing across the line but he's gotten underneath this one a bit too much, its very high and finds an animated Praveen out at wide long-on

SB Styris c Kumar b Pietersen 14 (8b 0x4 1x6) SR: 175.00

Deccan Chargers 147/4   RG Sharma 35* (23b 1x4 3x6)   KP Pietersen 2.3-0-17-2

Steyn to Sharma, OUT, ah, a cheeky attempt to go across the sticks ends his fine innings! Rohit walks right across to well outside off stump but the ball is not as straight as he would have liked, then he closes the face early and pops up an easy catch that KP, running in from mid-on, takes near the nonstriker's stumps ... but take a bow, son, that is a fine innings to boost Deccan

RG Sharma c Pietersen b Steyn 52 (30b 1x4 5x6) SR: 173.33

Deccan Chargers 172/5   Y Venugopal Rao 8* (10b)   DW Steyn 2.2-0-19-1

Steyn to Ravi Teja, 1 run, OUT, slower ball, leg cutter down the pads, Teja shuffles and plays it away toward square leg, there's some hesitation as he turns back for the second and his partner cannot get back in time as a good flat throw comes back ... got to feel for Rao there, sold down the river because Teja urged him on but then stopped in his tracks

Y Venugopal Rao run out 9 (13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 69.23

Deccan Chargers 174/6   DB Ravi Teja 1* (1b)   DW Steyn 3-0-21-1
