DC threw away the game against DD

DC threw the last night match against DD in the last three overs. When the things looked under control, thanks to an onslaught by the captain ‘Gilly’ & ‘Roy’ Symonds & some good strokes by D Ravi Teja – they lost it. Rajat Bhatia again bowled some good slow balls to ensure that DD doesn’t lose it. Its high time for DD to play the Glenn ‘Pigeon’ Mcgrath. They should give some rest to Dirk Nannes & include Mcgrath ASAP.

Gilly batted amazingly well but neither Rohit Sharma nor Smith supported him. Even the game was under DC’s control till the time Dwayne Smith played a rash shot. Apart from those two overs where DD scored 50 (24 off Suman’s over & 26 off Vaas’s last over), DC looked in control.

Earlier Dilshan & Karthik played scintillating innings which took DD to a formidable total. Dilshan was very aggressive in the early part of the innings & Karthik in the slog overs. These two along with AB Devilliers scored briskly to ensure DD gets past 170. AB was exquisite with his timing. Also his fielding skills add to DD’s benefits.
