IPL3. Day 21. Match.30. Kolkatta Knight Riders Vs Deccan Chargers.


Kolkatta Knight Riders 181 for 6 beat Deccan Chargers 157 for 5 by 24 runs. Ganguly won the toss and elected to bat in an excellent Eden Gardens wicket.
Ganguly reminded every one of his heydays and batted only as he can to make 88 of 54 balls. David Hussey's 31 of 27 was the only other notable contribution. Jaskaran,Symmonds and Ojha were among wickets with two apiece. The highest paid player in IPL3. K.Roach was far too expensive with 4.0.48.0. He was wayward in line & length and heavily contributed to Deccan Chargers loss.

Deccan Chargers were well in the hunt, with Gibbs 50 of 45 and Symmonds 45 of 37 batting as only they can. The fall of Gibbs at 121 for 3, choked the Chargers in the end overs and they could finish at 157 for 5, 25 short of the target.

Other than Mumbai Indians, it is difficult to predict the other three likely finishers for semi final slot. The second half of IPL 3 should be an exciting affair.
