Deccan ensure adventures Ban (GALORE)

Posted by atreyee on May 25, 2009

The unthinkable happened as the last year’s wooden-spooners took each other in the IPL final match. Royal Challengers Bangalore and Deccan Chargers played the IPL final match 2009 like men possessed. It was only fitting that the IPL final went down to the wire. Deccan became the IPL final winner by 6 runs.

Set into bat in the IPL final, Deccan lost Gilchrist in the first over and seemed destined for a low score. But with periodic assaults by first Symonds and then Rohit gave them hope. The high point of the innings, however, was an ultra mature half- century by Gibbs who carried his bat. They ended at a decent 142/5.

Capacity crowd ushered in to watch the IPL final match live. Kallis’ early departure pegged them back as Bangalore expected fireworks from their openers. The guns however blazed with Roland Merwe going slam bang and hitting three sixes. He fell along with Manish but still at the end of the ultimate strategic break, Bangalore held sway. The IPL final live score showed 75 needed off 60 balls, Dravid and Taylor at the crease. Gilchrist had to make a plan fast.  

Symonds was his master plan taking two off successive deliveries and thereafter Bangalore succumbed. The moment Taylor was out, the balance changed, never to return. Utthappa tried late antics in vain and the IPL final score showed Bangalore at 136/9.

The scenic flair went on. Lights went out as shimmering fairies floated in the sky. Once the IPL final schedule of 3.5 hours finished, the night belonged to Eddie Grant, Akon and Katrina Kaif ensuring an amazing IPL closing ceremony.
