NEW DELHI, INDIA (GaeaTimes.com)- Lady luck was surely on the side of the Deccan Chargers during its showdown with the Delhi Daredevils in the match that was held at the Ferozeshah Kotla in Delhi on Sunday. However, luck was not the only factor that enabled the defending champions to register a victory against the Delhi Daredevils in the DD Vs. DC match as players of the Deccan Chargers showcased a stunning performance ensuring their team’s much awaited victory.
Deccan Chargers’ win in the DD Vs. DC match on Sunday must have tasted all the more sweet to the Hyderabad based team, as with the victory they registered a slot in the semi-finals of the third edition of the Indian Premier League. A rather spectacular team effort enabled the Deccan Chargers to defeat the Delhi Daredevils by eleven runs, to end the Delhi based team’s run at the current edition of IPL. After winning the toss at the DD Vs. DC match, Deccan Chargers took the decision to bat first but failed to turn things in their favor as they managed to put up only 145 runs in the scoreboard after losing seven wickets.
However, the not so impressive battling skills showcased by the players of Deccan Chargers was compensated with their splendid fielding and superb bowling that restricted the Delhi Daredevils to a mere 134 for seven. Although the score set by the Deccan Chargers in the DD Vs. DC match looked quite achievable, the slow pitch as well as the amazing feat displayed by the winning team dashed the hopes of Delhi Daredevils to win IPL 3.
