A thunderstorm’ Sehwag’ hits the Deccan Chargers hopes: An explosive knock from Virendra Sehwag, the captain of the Delhi Daredevils, left everyone spell bounded as he blew past the goal set by the Chargers. In a remarkable evening of cricket, it was the Sehwag magic which prevailed all around.
The Deccan Chargers tonight played initially on a pitch that visibly appeared to be flat, but did offer a little seam for the pacers. Adam Gilchrist and Venugopal Rao opened the innings for the Chargers. They didn’t make a sought-after start on the Chargers on their home soil against great spells of bowling by Glen McGrath and M Asif.
Gilchrist fell soon to an Asif in cutter as he edged the ball onto his stumps being bowled for a score of eight. VVS Laxman, the Chargers captain, followed the footsteps of Gilchrist as he too got bowled by Asif for two. Symonds and Rao, on another hand, struggled to keep on the wicket but were both dismissed successively by the Sri Lankan pacer F Maharoof.
Ultimately, it was Rohit Sharma who came on the Chargers rescue with a few exquisite display of strokeplay to mark a quickfire sixty six off thirty six balls including six fours and four sixes. The Chargers inevitably, were able to publish a total of 142 for eight in their twenty overs.
The goal of 143 did appear to be challenging and was slated to be sufficient by the professionals exploring the manner by which the wicket was behaving.
But Virender Sehwag announced an alternative script, altogether. He led the Daredevils from the front side and also started the innings with Gambhir. Sehwag looked to have a rush to wrap up the proceedings.
He, ruthlessly, tore the Chargers attack apart and also blasted with an unbeaten knock of ninety four in only forty one deliveries he faced, including ten fours and six sixes. Andrew Symonds was the largest target of the Sehwag’s onslaught. His one over fetched Sehwag, thirty runs containing three sixers & three fours.
