IPL3 Day 8 Match 11- Delhi Daredevils Vs Chennai Super Kings




The match to watch.Both teams were without some star power. Gambhir for DD and Dhoni for CSK.
Sehwag was at his usual best hammering 74 of 38 balls.Had it not been for sweet knocks of 32 in 22 by Mithun and 21 in 9 by Bhatia,DD would have folded for a low under 150 score. They however finished at a healthy 185 for 6.

The Captaincy brought the best in Raina, and he held three brilliant catches.Balaji & Murli took two wickets each.

Today was Hayden's day. He blasted a match winning 93 supported
well by Raina,and CSK won the match by five wickets finishing at 190for5.
Hayden was declared he Man of the Match. Delhi Daredevils have lost
back to back games and are in the back foot in spite of a dream start
to the tournament. What is happening to Dilshan.He is nowhere near
the Dilshan we know.

Oldies have been performing well in IPL 3. Kumble, Tendulkar, Gilchrist, Hayden,Jaysurya & Vas to name a few. Is it right concluding T20 is only an young man's game. The elders have proved T20 is also a strategic game like Test Matches.
We are in for an exciting two more weeks of IPL3.
