8 balls Risach moment: Annihilation of Mumbai Indians by Rajasthan Royals

ajit-chandila-celebrates-ponting-wicket
Chandila celebrates Sachin wickets.

Is there any word to describe the feeling when you are just a novice and you are facing two living legends of Cricket? Is there any word to describe feelings and madness engulfed you when you have sent two living legends, Ricky Ponting and Sachin Tendulkar, back to the pavilion in just 8 balls?

There is no word to describe those feelings of madness, euphoria, joy and living a dream. You have to invent a new word for that. An unknown Ajit Chandila lived those moments when he scalped two stalwarts of Circket-Ricky ponting and Sachin Tendulkar in the span of 8 balls.Isn’t it unbelievable? Yes it is.

Such was the impact of this ‘RiSaCh ‘ (Acronym for Ricky Sachin and Chandila) moment that Rajasthan Royals thrashed powerful Mumbai Indians by 87 runs in the Pepsi Indian Premier League-VI match at the SMS Stadium here on a pleasant Wednesday night.

This venue is lucky for Amit Chandila.Last year at this venue Ajit Cahndila had a hat trick when he got wickets of Sourav Ganguly, Jesse Ryder and Robin Uthappa playing against Pune Warriors.But there is no match of this Risach moment that he lived in those 8 balls.

Rajasthan Royals won the toss and chose to bat first.Opening pair Rahane(68 runs on 54 balls) and Watson (31 Runs on 25 balls) set the benchmark that motivated other batsmen to score more runs.

D Yagnink (34 runs on 24 balls) and BJ Hodge (27 runs on 15 balls) placed Rajasthan Royals in a commanding position.Mumbai Indians bowling attack proved lackluster.Star bowler Lasith Malinga conceded 16 runs in an over and it forced Captain Ricky Ponting to test 6 bowlers till 9th over.

rajashthan-royals-beats-kings-punjab-2

Kings XI Punjab kept loosing wickets with regular interval. At one time their score was 3 for 10 and half of the team was back to pavilion at 67 runs.

Only DH Hussey (41 off 31 balls) posed some threat for a brief time till Trivedi sent him back to pavilion.Azhar Mahmood (23 off 20 balls) was the second highest scorer from Kings XI Punjab.

Captain Gilchrist of Kings XI blamed failure of top order for the defeat.

Adam Gilchrist said “We let 7-8 deliveries slip in the innings. We have been bowled out twice now, and it isn’t acceptable. It starts at the top, with me. Then in the first 3-4 overs, we gave Shane Watson enough to hit, but we can’t blame the bowlers because we didn’t give them a good total to defend. But they fought hard.”

Rajasthan Royals captain Rahul Dravid  praised Faulkner ,Rahane and Sanju Samson for the victory.

 

Rajasthan Royals’ captain Rahul Dravid said “It was pretty nervous in the end there. Heart rate around 150-155, but Rahane and the young kind Sanju Samson played really well, showed a lot of composure. We should have got there before the last over. It is a good cricket wicket, not all wickets should be 180-190, these ones make for good exciting cricket. So I am happy with the wicket. Faulkner has been exceptional for us, be brings in a lot of energy in the group. We are happy with the start we had, but we’ll learn with the challenges.”

Kallis has contributed with bowling also.He took 3 crucial wickets of NLTC Perera,PA Patel and CL White

Kolkata Knight Riders 180 for 4 (Gambhir 53, Kallis 41) beat Sunrisers Hyderabad 132 for 7 (NLTC Perera 36, P Patel 27) by 48 runs.

Defending Champion Kolkata Knight Riders beats Sunrisers Hyderabad by 48 runs in Pepsi Indian Premier League, in Kolkata.

This is second victory for KKR and second defeat for Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Gautam Gambhir has been declared Man of the Match for his brilliant knock of 53 runs on . Gautam scored 53 runs on just 45 balls.Kolkata Knight Riders won the toss and chose to bat first.KKR decision was proved right when their batting line brutally thrashed bowling attack of Sunrisers Hyderabad.

MS Bisla (28 runs off 24 balls ) and Gautam Gambhir (53 off 45) provided a strong and consolidated platform for KKR on which Eoin Morgan (47) and Jacques Kallis (41) scored a huge score 0f 180 for Sunrisers Hyderabad.

KKR lost first wicket at 59 and second on 102.Third wicket was lost at 169 and fourth one at 180.This is enough to tell how brutal their batting attack against Sunrisers Hyderabad was.

180 proved too much for Sunrisers .Sunrisers Hyderabad bowling attack was weak and batsman followed their bowler’s performance as an example. PA Patel(27) and CL White(34) tried to defy KKR lethal bowling attack but they could not face it for longer period.

Captain KC Sangakkara could score only 2 runs and later on Sunriser Hyderabad batting collapsed easily. Only NLTC Perera scored 36 runs.Kallis sent him back to pavilion.

Sunriser Hyderabad was losing wickets with regular interval. Sunriser Hyderabad lost first wicket at 57 and second on 68.

Later on Sangakkara accepted that 180 was a big score to chase. He was expecting good knock from CL White.

Captain Sangakkara: “We brought it back pretty well after the first six overs, but lost a bit of momentum. We were outplayed by a better side. If we had limited them to about 160, we were never really in the chase from the start. We thought in the Powerplay, having White on the top would help him get a big one for us. We’ve got good hitting power in White, Reddy and Perera. The rest of us have to rotate the strike.”

Kallis has contributed with bowling also.He took 3 crucial wickets of NLTC Perera,PA Patel and CL White.

Gambhir praised Kallis and Morgan for their contribution in the victory.

Gambhir said “It was a good wicket to bat on, the way Morgan and Jacques batted it was fantastic. We were thinking of 160 at one stage, but to get 180 is great. Morgan has been an incredible batsman; we wanted to give him more time. We wanted someone to complement Sunil, the way Senanayake and Sunil bowled, it’s great for us. We got the right pick to bowl in tandem with Sunil. When you’re in good nick, you’ve got to take the team along.”

Gautam  Gambhir has been declared Man of the Match.
