IPL.3.Day.38. Match55. Deccan Chargers Vs Delhi Daredevils

Deccan Chargers 145 for 7 beat Delhi Daredevils 134 for 7 by 11 runs, to snatch the second place at the top of the order.
Deccan Chargers winning the toss, batted first and put up a not too good score of 145 for 7 in 20 overs.Monish Mishra 25 of 19, and Andrew Symonds 54 of 30 were the main contributors. Nehra with 2 for 32 , Yadav with 2 for 24, Amit Mishra 1 for 28 and Paul Collingwood 1 for 23, were amongst the wickets.
Chasing smallish scores is always a trickish affair, and that's what happened. Delhi Daredevils fell short of the target by 12 runs, and folded to 134 for 7. Warner, Sehwag, Dilshan & Gambhir, the top four, who on their day could demolish any attack, jointly scored 28 runs. Collingwood 51 of 42, Mithun Manas 23 of 22 and Ashis Nehra 22 of 16, added some substance to Daredevils total.
Ojha and Harmeet picked up two wickets each . Mitchell Marsh and Chaminda Vas picked up a wicket each.
Mumbai Indians, Deccan Chargers, Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers occupy the top four slots. Kolkatta Knight Riders, need a huge victory in their final match against Mumbai Indians to knock Royal Challengers out. This appear to be a tall order. But this is T.20 and anything is possible.
