Played at Kingsmead, Durban (neutral venue)
25 April 2009 (20-over match)

Khan to Gibbs, FOUR, and Gibbs is off, steps out, gets to the pitch and lofts it over extra cover, what a shot

Deccan Chargers 10/0   HH Gibbs 4* (2b 1x4)   Z Khan 0.2-0-4-0

Khan to Gilchrist, FOUR, this will wake him up, looks to pull, the ball hurries onto him, and the top-edge carries over slip

Deccan Chargers 15/0   AC Gilchrist 10* (8b 1x4 1x6)   Z Khan 1-0-9-0

Malinga to Gilchrist, FOUR, lovely shot, Malinga errs a little bit with this yorker, but the ball is still swinging away from Gilchrist, but Gilchrist stays back and just opens the face towards a vacant thirdman region. He knew the field really well

Deccan Chargers 20/0   AC Gilchrist 14* (9b 2x4 1x6)   SL Malinga 1.4-0-11-0

Khan to Gibbs, FOUR, Gibbs has the dancing shoes for spikes, he steps down to Zaheer again, he adjusts his length and pulls it back, but Gibbs still flat-bats it down past mid-off

Deccan Chargers 28/0   HH Gibbs 10* (9b 2x4)   Z Khan 1.2-0-14-0

Bravo to Gibbs, FOUR, edged and four! another big swing, the ball nips back in, takes inside edge, and goes past the keeper

Deccan Chargers 43/0   HH Gibbs 17* (14b 3x4)   DJ Bravo 0.5-0-7-0

Harbhajan Singh to Gilchrist, FOUR, too fast, 96ks, and Gilchrist is too smart for these deliveries, this gave him room, and Gilchrist late-cuts it, thirdman is up, okay bye

Deccan Chargers 50/0   AC Gilchrist 27* (16b 3x4 2x6)   Harbhajan Singh 0.3-0-6-0

Harbhajan Singh to Gibbs, FOUR, this was a doosra, remarkably slower, 84ks, gets a thick outside edge, and it runs down to the thirdman boundary

Deccan Chargers 55/0   HH Gibbs 22* (18b 4x4)   Harbhajan Singh 0.5-0-11-0

Bravo to Smith, FOUR, and times that superbly right away, takes half a step down the wicket, Bravo shortens tyhe length, but Smith pushes it through the off side, and beats the sweeper-cover. Short boundary + good timing = four runs

Deccan Chargers 67/1   DR Smith 4* (1b 1x4)   DJ Bravo 2-0-19-1

Jayasuriya to Smith, FOUR, what a shot, this isn't too short, it's just outside off, and Smith stays back to cut it towards extra cover, and this speeds off on the fast outfield

Deccan Chargers 88/1   DR Smith 20* (13b 2x4 1x6)   ST Jayasuriya 2-0-17-0

Kulkarni to Gibbs, FOUR, this is too wide, a poor start, and Gibbs opens his face to play it between point and thirdman, what an over for Deccan

Deccan Chargers 113/1   HH Gibbs 40* (33b 5x4 1x6)   DS Kulkarni 1-0-18-0

Bravo to Gibbs, FOUR, slower ball, Gibbs seems to have been beaten, but gets down to a knee, and drags it from outside off to midwicket. What a drag!

Deccan Chargers 135/2   HH Gibbs 54* (39b 6x4 2x6)   DJ Bravo 2.1-0-23-1

Bravo to Ravi Teja, FOUR, good nudge, will get four, just outside four, fullish, and sliced away just wide of keeper

Deccan Chargers 150/5   DB Ravi Teja 5* (2b 1x4)   DJ Bravo 3.5-0-33-3
