DC – The New Nizaams of IPL

Deccan Chargers finally did it! After having the wooden spoon in the last season, they’ve struck gold this time. They defeated Dr. Vijay Mallya’s RCB by 6 runs to win the IPL Season 2. Just like the last year the game went right till the last over where R P Singh kept his cool & bowled beautifully to give just 8 runs when the requirement was 15. Robin Uthappa, just like the whole tournament, batted disastrously in the last over. He tried some cheeky shots to send the ball to the boundary, but ‘The Purple Cap’ winner, R P Singh ensured that DC wins the gold.

Anil Kumble, earlier bowled superbly to dismiss the hero of the semifinal – Adam Gilchrist, Andrew Symonds, Rohit Sharma & T Suman to restrict DC to a paltry 143. The moment of the match & probably the turning point of the game came when Gilchrist stumped Virat Kohli on the bowling of Andrew Symonds. Young Harmeet Singh & Pragyan Ojha rose to the occasion to bowl exceptionally well.

It was a team effort & DC truly deserves to be champions.
