Indian Premier League - 56th match

Royal Challengers Bangalore v Deccan Chargers

Royal Challengers Bangalore won by 12 runs

6.5

Akhil to Gilchrist, OUT, and Gilchrist is gone, on the pull shot - hard to believe as it is, but once again the extra bounce troubles Gilchrist, who gets a top edge that lobs towards deep backward square, where van der Merwe takes a safe running catch

AC Gilchrist c van der Merwe b Akhil 15 (18b 2x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

Deccan Chargers 68/1   HH Gibbs 45* (23b 3x4 4x6)   B Akhil 0.5-0-4-1

10.6

Kumble to Suman, OUT, soft dismissal, short ball, hit straight to van der Merwe at cover, he was looking to blast the leather of the ball, and was hurried a bit too by the skid

TL Suman c van der Merwe b Kumble 12 (12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Deccan Chargers 91/2   HH Gibbs 53* (36b 3x4 4x6)   A Kumble 3-0-16-1

14.1

Akhil to Gibbs, OUT, and he gets a wicket in the first over of his spell again, Gibbs looks to pull off the front foot, doesn't connect, gets one hand off, and top-edges it into the on side, where Pandey, running in from deep backward square leg, holds on to it

HH Gibbs c Pandey b Akhil 60 (43b 3x4 4x6) SR: 139.53

Deccan Chargers 116/3   A Symonds 16* (12b 1x4 1x6)   B Akhil 2.1-0-9-2

15.1

van der Merwe to Symonds, OUT, and that's a big big wicket that he has got, pitched full, arm ball, Symonds goes for the slog-sweep, plays all over it and the off stump goes out of the ground

A Symonds b van der Merwe 18 (15b 1x4 1x6) SR: 120.00

Deccan Chargers 119/4   RG Sharma 1* (3b)   RE van der Merwe 3.1-0-26-1

17.5

Kumar to Venugopal Rao, OUT, beats Rao outside off, Sharma wants the strike, Rao has to run for the bye, and Boucher underarms it perfectly to Kumar who finds Rao short

Y Venugopal Rao run out 8 (9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 88.88

Deccan Chargers 137/5   RG Sharma 11* (10b 1x4)   P Kumar 2.5-0-31-0

18.1

Kumble to Sharma, OUT, Kohli is cooler than Sharma. Low fulltoss from Kumble, Sharma tries to clear long-on, doesn't middle, Kohli nonchalantly stations himself at the boundary, and takes it over his head. Doesn't move, doesn't emote. Like it's everyday business

RG Sharma c Kohli b Kumble 12 (12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Deccan Chargers 138/6   AA Bilakhia 0* (0b)   A Kumble 3.1-0-16-2
