Rajashthan Royals Wins Easily by 8 Wickets against Chennai Superkings in Match 24

The team which was ruling the charts before this match has suffered a smashing defeat of 8 wickets by Rajashtan Royals. Yes, I m talking about Chennai Superkings who scored mere 109 runs with 10 wickets down, their all time low total so far in the IPL.

Sohail Tanvir records the best bowling figure in 20-20 cricket with 6 wickets in 4 over. He got 2 wickets in the very first over of the match and after that Chennai Superkings never looked good and managed to set a target of 110 runs which Rajashthan Royals reached comfortably in 14.2 overs with couple of wickets loss.


Mumbai Indias Beat Delhi Dare Devils by 29 Runs

Mumbai Indians won their second straight match with a comprehensive 29-run win over the high-flying Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League match at the D Y Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai on Sunday.

The win followed their triumph over the Kolkata Knight Riders while it was the Delhi side second defeat in six games.

Chasing 163 for a win, the Delhi team's innings began on a disastrous note with the in-form Gautam Gambhir (1) and Shikar Dhawan (1) returning to the pavillion early and reducing their side to four for two by the third over.

Captain Virender Sehwag (40) and South African AB de Villiers (21) tried to steady the ship but the latter was quite unfortunate to be run out in the non-striker's end just as he was starting to look good.

Sehwag put on a further 45-run partnership for the fourth wicket with Shoaib Malik (24) but his dismissal was callous and came in at a crucial time.
