RCB falter at the finish line

















Chennai Super Kings have won the IPL title yet again!  The most consistent and powerful team in the IPL once again showed it's class and true mark of championship by rising to the occasion and mauling a completely out-classed RCB side[SCORECARD].






There's not much to say other than that Murali Vijay and Micheal Hussey decided to come good at the best of times.  Vijay who has had a sub-standard tournament so far was on fire yesterday as he scored 95 of just 52 balls.  Hussey also gave him good company with a half century (63 runs of 45 balls).  The Challengers were completely outplayed as Chennai took the dominant role from the first ball.  They showed no respite on RCB's bowling attack and ground them to pulp on a wicket which was slowing down dramatically! 205 was the mountainous score Chennai piled, and RCB needing to overhaul that looked like the game was already lost.  It probably was.  










If the script was to have any changes then Gayle had to fire, but he departed in the very first over thanks to Ashwin.  RCB never did get going and kept on losing wickets.  Must be said that the pitch looked completely different all the sudden with viscous bounce and turn.  Also must be mentioned that Chennai bowlers took full use of it and with Dhoni's sharp captaincy the match was a easy dull one-sided affair.  RCB finally managed 147 for 8 losing by 58 runs.






Chennai are crowned yet again as Champions and they must really enjoy this!  They are making a legacy and things look great if you're a Chennai fan. If you're an RCB fan, well still you got to be proud of your team and next time, we'll be back stronger!

This was sad..heart-breaking..only if we had beaten CSK in the first semi-final itself when we had a much better chance but threw it away..:( didn't really think we would be able to beat MI though but we did so cheers for that!:)

Still RCB is the best considering the huge wins they had. Simply CSK were lucky on the finals and home match did the trick for them.
