DD defeats RR – Ah, Nothing New !!!

Nothing much for me to write as it has been the story of the season. Just have a look at the highlights of the game:

• DD batted first – Viru & Gauti fell cheaply (as always…)
• The 3 musketeers – Dilshan, Devillers & Kartik again played superb knocks to make DD reach 150 (as always…)
• The bowlers – Nehra, Nannes, Sangwan & Mishra bowled brilliantly (as always…)

The unusual thing about the game was Smith, Ojha, Pathan, & Warne failed together. Though the gutsy, Johan Botha & the man in form for RR – Ravinder Jadeja tried very hard from the bat to secure the game for the Royals, but their effort was just not enough. In the end Munaf Patel, though tried to create a sensation by hitting 4 boundaries, but it was just a tailender’s effort which didn’t gave DD any threat.

So DD sitting pretty with 18 points in the bag & still couple of games to go!!! The tournament structure is so beautiful that it still hasn’t been decided who will join DD & CSK in the semis. Every game is crucial for the teams like DC, KXIP, RR & RCB which are still in fight for the 3rd & 4th spot.
