Commentary

END OF OVER:
20 | 12 Runs 1 Wkt | KXIP: 164/8

  • S Sreesanth12 (5b)
  • Bipul Sharma8 (6b)
  • Jaskaran Singh1-0-12-1
  • RP Singh4-0-43-1

Deccan have defeated Punjab by six runs. Their first win in five games against this side, and what's more - their first win at any "home" venue in the IPL (and in the Champions League). As the DJ is shouting - "Go Chargers!"

Tragedy for Punjab. Irfan played a blinder and they still fell short, which shows just how badly they went in the first half of the chase. Big problems for them as they look to turn around this IPL, winless after three matches, like Rajasthan Royals.

The points table wears a funny look now, with six teams tied on four points, though they have played a different number of games. Punjab and Rajasthan languish at the bottom of the table. Two of the best teams in IPL 2008 - things have changed drastically in two years.

That concludes our commentary for this game. On behalf of scorer Gopi Rangarajan and the rest of the desk, this is Nitin Sundar signing off. Cheers!

Jaskaran Singh to Sreesanth, FOUR runs, length again, Sree comes halfway down the track again, and carves it over cover yet again, but can only get four of the 11 Punjab need to get on the victory board.

Jaskaran Singh to Sreesanth, FOUR runs, fulltoss again, Sree is out once again and this time swings it away to extra cover for four.

15 off 2. Not possible without extras.

Jaskaran Singh to Sreesanth, no run, and misses again, length ball, Sree can't make contact. Through to Gilchrist.

Jaskaran Singh to Sreesanth, no run, lands it this time. Sreesanth charges out again, but its a length ball and he cannot connect. Dot ball.

Jaskaran Singh to Sreesanth, FOUR runs, Sree jumps out and is susprised by a high fulltoss. Goes for an almighty swing, which somehow connects and inexplicably runs to the third man fence.

Jaskaran Singh to Pathan, OUT, and Irfan goes, what a tragedy! Length ball again on off stump, and Irfan looks for the fence over cow corner, but he has the small matter of getting past that man, Andrew Symonds. Ain't happening today, Symmo takes the catch easily and Irfan has to go. Huge wicket and belatedly, one believes the last nail on the coffin.

Jaskaran to bowl. Hmmm.
