Commentary

Thanks for your company, do hop over to the other tab for the next match, big one it is, between Bangalore and Kolkata. Okay bye

Presentation
Ryan Harris is the Man of the Match "Doesn't happen often [bowler getting MOM], does it? We have talked about our last five-six overs, our batsmen should have been chasing 35-40 runs less in many matches. We have been a bit predictable, so we have to mix it up, and the main thing for me is I wasn't executing the yorker well. So that's something we are still working on."

Adam Gilchrist "We had to [come back and keep winning]. The wicket was very slow, the bowlers adapted quickly, we lost a few wickets early, but the batsmen hung in. Similar scenario [as in 1999 WC] to win every game. That's been an accusation, or suggestion, that we have relied too much on big-name players, and they haven't done well this time. But they have lifted their games, and also the others around them. We can win three out of three, we have got to believe we can do it."

MS Dhoni "The ball was stopping on, especially under the lights it got slightly better to bat. Overall, they bowled and batted better. Smarter sides make full use of conditions, they used the slower ones well, and had fielders in the right place. We were lacking a spinner or a bowler who could take the pace off."

It's the same pair of Suman and Symonds that guides Deccan home. Suman played some beautiful inside-out shots, and Symonds once again took it upon himself to stay there till the game was won. He seems a hurt, determined man. Lots of credit to their bowlers, though, for having kept Chennai to 138. Deccan are now level with Chennai, Kolkata and Bangalore on points here. Bangalore and Kolkata, though, have a game in hand. But it's all too close, even Punjab have a remote outside chance.
