Indian Premier League, 12th match: Deccan Chargers v Kings XI Punjab at Cuttack, Mar 19, 2010
Deccan Chargers won by 6 runs
19 March 2010 - night match (20-over match)

Pathan to Gilchrist, 1 run, tight run. Nice swinging delivery from Irfan, Gilchirst stays back and carefully guides it to cover and runs. A direct hit would have been interesting.


Pathan to Gilchrist, no run, misses the slog to midwicket. Nice shape away again and not the right shot for that ball.


Pathan to Gilchrist, 2 runs, nice swing again, and Gilchrist plays it in the air, off the outside half, over cover. Nice fielding at the cover boundary


Pathan to Gilchrist, no run, and again. Irfan's got that famous banana-swing that was the toast of 2003-04 going. Gilly drives off the front foot to mid off

Deccan Chargers 4/0   AC Gilchrist 3* (4b)

Sreesanth to Gilchrist, 2 runs, china cut eludes offstump, not by much. Angles across Gilchrist, cramping him for room, and the cut runs down to fine leg.


Sreesanth to Gilchrist, FOUR, shot! That one did not come on to the bat, and the length was not there either, but these things matter very little to Gilly who swings it from outside off to midwicket.


Sreesanth to Gilchrist, SIX, see you later! Similar ball, good length outside off and angling away. Gilchrist picks it early and hammers it straight for a six.


Sreesanth to Gilchrist, 1 wide, pressure's on Sreesanth and it shows. Attempted slower ball goes awry, down the leg side


Sreesanth to Gilchrist, SIX, and he makes him pay for the indiscretion! Sree tries to bounce Gilchrist, but at 134 kph, for a man bred at the WACA, that sat up and asked to be hit. Gilly was in position and pulled it high over square leg. Six more!


Sreesanth to Gilchrist, FOUR, creamed through the covers! Short of a length, angling from middle towards the slips, Gilly picks it early and punishes it in typical fashion through the offside cordon. Big over!

Deccan Chargers 28/0   AC Gilchrist 25* (9b 2x4 2x6)

Srivastava to Gilchrist, FOUR, short again, at 130 kph and Gilchrist did not time the pull very well, but it just kept running away from mid on. Four more for Gilly - he's off to a flier


Srivastava to Gilchrist, FOUR, just short of the rope! Problems aplenty for Sanga, as Gilchrist is laying into them, irrespective of the length. This was further up and he swung it from outside off to midwicket for four.


Srivastava to Gilchrist, OUT, against the run of play! Short again from the left-armer, Gilchrist was into the pull, probably a little early and it took the top edge and ballooned to short midwicket, where Mahela Jayawardene took a nice running catch. Big wicket - Gilchrist looked menacing in those 17 minutes.

AC Gilchrist c Jayawardene b Srivastava 33 (12b 4x4 2x6) SR: 275.00

Deccan Chargers 43/1   AC Gilchrist 33 (12b 4x4 2x6)
