Deccan Chargers won by 6 runs
19 March 2010 - night match (20-over match)

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.

Deccan Chargers 11/0   AC Gilchrist 9* (6b 1x4)   S Sreesanth 0.3-0-7-0

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)   S Sreesanth 1-0-24-0

Srivastava to Laxman, FOUR, welcome Shalabh! On a length, angling across, Laxman opens the face deftly and runs it down to third man, this outfield is lightning quick.

Deccan Chargers 32/0   VVS Laxman 6* (4b 1x4)   SJ Srivastava 0.1-0-4-0

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

Deccan Chargers 39/0   AC Gilchrist 29* (10b 3x4 2x6)   SJ Srivastava 0.4-0-11-0

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.

Deccan Chargers 43/0   AC Gilchrist 33* (11b 4x4 2x6)   SJ Srivastava 0.5-0-15-0

Srivastava to Symonds, FOUR, ah, another inside edge, this time from Symonds, misses the stumps and flies to fine leg for four

Deccan Chargers 53/1   A Symonds 5* (4b 1x4)   SJ Srivastava 2-0-22-1

Bipul Sharma to Gibbs, FOUR, beauty shot! This man has a wonderful cover-drive. Comes forward, gets to the pitch and lofts it over cover for a really pretty boundary

Deccan Chargers 60/1   HH Gibbs 10* (11b 1x4)   Bipul Sharma 0.1-0-4-0

Pathan to Gibbs, FOUR, whack! Dragged the length ball on middle stump towards midwicket without any fuss. Nice shot.

Deccan Chargers 82/1   HH Gibbs 21* (19b 2x4)   IK Pathan 1.3-0-9-0

Sreesanth to Symonds, FOUR, tries another slower ball, and it slips down the legside, Symonds gets something on it and sends it on its way to fine leg. Gift

Deccan Chargers 96/1   A Symonds 29* (19b 2x4 2x6)   S Sreesanth 2.5-0-39-0

Sreesanth to Symonds, FOUR, oh, he's lost it, probably slipped out. Waist high fulltoss again drifting down the leg, Symonds is caught by surprise but gets some bat on it to fine leg for four more.

Deccan Chargers 100/1   A Symonds 33* (20b 3x4 2x6)   S Sreesanth 3-0-43-0

Yuvraj Singh to Suman, FOUR, nicely played! Short ball outside off, and he had to make all the running there. Hit it off the back foot over extra cover for a crucial four.

Deccan Chargers 123/4   TL Suman 8* (9b 1x4)   Yuvraj Singh 2.1-0-9-1

Chawla to Suman, FOUR, legspinner on a length outside off and smartly played. Lofts it just over the infield and it runs away to the cover boundary.

Deccan Chargers 132/4   TL Suman 13* (13b 2x4)   PP Chawla 2.3-0-22-0

Srivastava to Vaas, FOUR, short this time, and Vaas was waiting for it. Expertly pulled over the infield towards midwicket for four more.

Deccan Chargers 156/5   WPUJC Vaas 12* (5b 1x4 1x6)   SJ Srivastava 3.5-0-38-1
