Rajasthan Royals Won the IPL 2008 : Last Ball Win - Scorecard

What a final match it was. The match that compenstated for two flop semi finals...couldn't get better than this.

Chennai Superkings who scored 163 runs just lost in the final ball to the Royals. Being 8 runs runs required in the last over (bowled by Balaji) with Tanvir and Warne on the creeche, it could be anybody's game. But finally Rajasthan emerged as the winners.

Actually, it was not the last over only...the match looked very balanced from the begining and it was hard to predict the winner at any stage of the game. Yusuf Pathan(56) who took the game away from the Chennai got run out in the 17th leaving 21 runs to be scored in 15 balls. After that Jadeja got out in the very first ball and Chennai Super Kings were back in the game. But then Tanvir and Captain himself slowly stole the game from Chennai's hand taking their team to victory.
