Rohit’s all round show brings Chargers back in the hunt

Finally we have won, sorry Deccan Chargers HAVE WON.They stopped their losing streak against Bombay registering a tight 19 run win.This brought them once again in contention for a semifinal spot.They won the crucial toss and Gilly as expected chose to bat.But Gibbs had an uncertain start and was out for a duck once again.But Chargers came determined this time though.Their run rate was never dominating and they never looked like in control until Rohit Sharma put on 38 runs with considerable contributions from venugopala rao scoring 28.Finally they ended up at around 145/6.Certainly gettable for the Mumbai Indians and with Deccans missing Edwards and Ojha things were looking bleak for the Chargers.

Mumbai relied too much on its openers and they were sent to the pavilion in flash by the in the form R.P.Singh.Duminy who has been incredibly consistent through out the season came to the rescue of the Mumbai Indians and they were looking comfortable till the 10th over at 71-3 with just 74 to get from 60 balls.But the unexpected heroes arose for the Deccans.Suman who hardly bowled in the tournament got Bravo for 13.Suman bowled economically too adding to the woes of Mumbai Indians.Duminy was fighting a lone battle.Unexpectedly Gilly threw the ball to Sharma’s hands at 15th over where Bombay had around 46 to get from 30 balls.Certainly looked like a gamble but it finally paid off.A tight over followed by 2 wickets in consecutive balls thrashed Mumbai’s hopes.He had other plans too.He bowled next the 17th over and picked 2 wickets with one of them including Duminy’s who just completed his 3rd IPL fifty by then.A hattrick and another wicket!!Wild celebrations were on in the Deccan camp and why not.That was it for Mumbai.A tight over from R.P ended the game in style for the Chargers who came back to their winning ways while the Mumbai Indians proved once again how inconsistent they can get to.As expected Rohit Sharma won the MOM award for his all round performance.
