IPL3. Day 10. Match 15. Deccan Chargers Vs Delhi Daredevils

It is the day 10 of IPL3, and unlike the earlier two versions, no clear cut position has emerged in terms of top finishers. No one team seem to be a clear favourite.

In the 15 th match of IPL3, Deccan Chargers started sedately.Delhi Daredevils used as many as four spinners in the first six overs. This strategy did have an effect at the start. Manish Mishra misread a beautiful Googly by Amit Mishra and was gone in over one.

However Gilchrist and Gibbs started their usual launch. Gilchrist was severe on the spinners, repeatedly sweeping Nagar for consecutive fours, and Sarabjit Ladda in the next over for couple of boundaries, before skying a Ladda Googly to the keeper. Gibbs was very severe on Nannes, launching a six over long on, slashing a four over point and an on drive for four.

Gilchrist made 24 of 14 and Gibbs 31 of 24. Symmonds batted in his usual style for a well made 35 of21. What really made up the score of 171 for 6 for the Chargers was the 60 runs quickfire partnership between Rohit Sharma & Suman. Rohit made 40 of 30 and Suman 29 of 19. Amit Mishra and Uday Yadav bowled well for DD. Mishra finished at 1 for 12 in 3 and yadav none for 16 in 4.

Delhi daredevils lost Sehwag early. Warner made a strokeful 57 of 33. AB D Villiers made a sedate 27 of 24. The Skipper Dinesh Kartik played a gem of an innings , and at 131 for 4 it looked any body's game. Great 17th and 19th overs by Symmonds and top finish 20th over by Vas sealed the game in Chargers favour. Daredevils folded to a 161 for 9, Kartik holing out to Symmonds, for a well made 46 of 26. The Superman Vas finished with 4-0-21-1 and Symmonds 4-0-21-3. Lesser said about RP and Ojha the better. Deccan Chargers won the match by 10 runs & are now at the top of the table with six points
