Back on track !
Well that was very much expected... isn't it ???
We started off the IPL5 with a win and few loses. But we always knew we would get back to our winning habit!
Pune Warriors started off with a blistering knock, with the local boy Robin Uthappa scoring quick fire 69. Also 34 by Ryder and Samuels got PWI to 182 in 20 overs.
The start of RCB innings was decent at the beginning and a complete silence when Dilshan was out trying a DilScoop. Mayank stepped in and hit a six, which was a treat to watch! After Mayank got out, Virat and Gayle tried stabilizing the innings and they did but with a lesser run rate. The pressure started mounting, Virat tried going big, but in vain got out.
Gayle was going at run a ball, then he realized and the result was a 5 consecutive sixes of Rahul Sharma, one of those bowlers with best economy rates in IPL. The game could have been finished in no time with Gayle at crease, but unfortunately Nehra yorked Gayle and sent him back to pavilion.
Then, the partnership between Tiwary and Ab De was crucial, and it did work out :). Ashok Dinda having bowled the penultimate over efficiently, RCB required 21 of the last over and Ganguly trusted Nehra. The class acts of Ab De baffled PWI. The 6 of the the third ball was a treat to watch! And another six to inch closer. 3 runs required of the last ball and Tiwary came to the party with a six !
We are back! Game for More!
That was an amazing chase...wasn't it ???
