At last Chennai put a full stop to their continuous losses which started with Delhi, hope they permanently never lose as they tasted success against Delhi yesterday. Delhi started well for the first 4 overs a with Sehwag’s hard struck boundaries. Goni wonderful Yorker outwitted Sehwags’s cleverness putting his straight off stump to a slanting position. This invited A B de Villiers only to see his leg stump dead by Morkel’s delivery. Then the match shifted momentum completely towards Delhi as both the left handers- Ghambir and Dhawan played an awesome innings gathering 121 for the third wicket which is a record partnership. Then the duo got out in the last overs, but Dinesh karthick with few fours took his team to a good total of 187. Chennai who haven’t got a good opening so far after Hayden left, seemed to lose the match. Dhoni had made changes in the batting order moving Vidyut a place up as an opener and replacing Patel with Kapugedera. The openers performed well charging Chennai with a run rate above 10. Vidyut left in the seventh over contributing 40. It was Stephen Flemings turn to rock now with Dhoni. Fleming was at his best driving boundaries but the match shifted its favour towards Delhi when Fleming was out followed by Raina dismissal. Then Morkel smashed Delhi bringing Chennai back to the game. He crushed Sehwag over which read 6,6,6,4,0,1. This was the turning point but Morkel was run out the next over. This increased pulse rates which was further increased by Dhoni’s fall. Kapugedera fell in the next ball making it still more difficult for a win.Chennai was in a miserable situation needing 15 runs from the last over. It was Goni who did the magic smashing a six and a four of two balls with a wide from Shoab Malik proving Sehwag’s decision wrong to give the ball to him. He took a single of the next ball. Badrinath ran for a two the next ball. Shoab’s experience made him deliver a good ball for the fifth leaving both the teams in a critical stage wherein Chennai needed I to win from 1 ball. Badrinath lofted the last delivery, luckily the catch was dropped. Alas Chennai had won its game. The thrilling win would surely have given much needed confidence and hopes to the team and I am sure they would continue in the success.
