Deccan Charger after scoring 214/5 in their 20 overs thought they have posted enough to register their first win in IPL twenty20 but Shane Warne team have other ideas and they registered their second consecutive victory in the IPL.
Needing 19 runs for victory in the final over Shane Warne hit two crispy six and 4’s on the bowling of Andrew Symonds to shatter the dream of Deccan Chargers of registering first win in IPL twenty.
The match was in well favor of Rajasthan Royals after Yusuf Pathan (61 runs of 28 balls) and Greame Smith (71 runs of 45 balls), however Shahid Afridi has some other ideas when he took two wickets in the 18th over of inning both of Md. Kaif (34 runs of 16 balls) ad G.Smith to turn the tide in the favor of Deccan Chargers.
But Warne, with Pankaj Singh for company, pulled off a sensational win as VVS Laxman handed the ball to Symonds for the last over.
Earlier, Symonds scored a brilliant unbeaten 117 runs of 53 balls with seven sixes and 11 fours as Deccan Chargers were carried to a blinding 214-5 against Rajasthan Royals. Sent in to bat by by Shane Warne, Hyderabad were in some trouble initially before Symonds, initially with VVS Laxman, and then with Rohit Sharma, guided his side to a potentially winning situation.
Now Deccan Chargers are at the bottom of the points table after loosing their three consecutive matches on trot.
Yusuf Pathan was declared Man of the Match.
