Deccan Chargers brought the high flying Mumbai Indians led by the mighty Sachin Tendulkar down to the ground. Chasing 169 for a victory, the Mumbai Indians were racing away to a victory at 85/1 in just 10 overs when the dreaded tactical time out did the trick.
Pragyan Ojha who bowled an awesome 4 over spell taking 3 wickets for just 21 runs put brakes in the Mumbai batting. Fidel Edwards and RP Singh chipped in with 2 wickets apiece.
Earlier, batting first, the Deccan Chargers got off to a flier with Gibbs topscoring with 58 and ably supported by Gilchrist (35) and Dwayne Smith (35). A lower order collapse restricted Deccan Chargers to just 168 when at a point 200 was surely on the cards.
With this victory, Deccan Chargers are clearly on the top with a 100% record. 3 wins in 3 matches. DC next take on the mighty Chennai Super Kings on monday at 1600 hrs IST. That should be another mouthwatering contest.
