RCB & DC Enters Semifinals

At last, RCB & DC make their way to the semis & it will now be RCB v/s CSK & DD v/s DC. RCB defeated DC by 12 runs to attain the third position in the points table. Today, a century was scored by Manish Pandey of RCB – the 1st by an Indian in IPL & second overall this season. RCB batted 1st & Pandey – who was sent to open the innings along with Jacques Kallis, straight away started the assault on DC bowlers. R P was specially treated with fours & sixes: the result – R P gave 47 in 4 overs, which was his most expensive bowling performance this season. In the last over, especially RCB won the battle by hitting him for 23 runs.

Interestingly, RCB has defeated all the other three semifinalists in their last four games!!!
This makes them a strong contender against CSK. Now, the team consisting of Jacques Kallis, Anil Kumble, Manish Pandey, Van Der Merwe & Ross Taylor is looking a serious contender to lift the trophy.

Watch them out battle it against the topmost team of the tournament so far !
