A super over - Sunrisers win and Vihari the Man of the Match

I had posted about Vihari, who bowled that solitary over and took the wicket of Gayle… Sunrisers is a lowly rated team – old wine Deccan Chargers in a new bottle…. But they have won both their matches now is the news.  

After restricting the much famed RCB to 130, it should have been easy chasing that… but IPL 6 has already produced some nail-baiting finishes ~though has been low-scoring thus far. After Gayle’s exit, Dilshan was all at sea; Kohli and Henriques added runs.

In the chase, Parthiv Patel fell early and so did White… it was to be Vihari again, he made unbeaten 44 off 46 balls but he never took the game away from Royal Challengers. He would have expected someone like his captain Kumar Sangakkara to take the lead but the Sri Lankan batsman made just 16. The game boiled down to such a finish because of a 23-run stand for the seventh wicket between Vihari and Ashish Reddy. ~ and it was super over – Vinaykumar in the earlier versions had been hit all over the park, but he displayed himself to be an agile fielder – his run out of Amit Mishra caused the tie and the resultant super over.

In the Super over, it was Sun Risers part to play first and they opened with Cameron White and Perera – Vinay kumar was the hapless bowler as White struck two sixers in that one over eliminator – vinay also bowled an extra delivery.  It was 20 – not a great target thinking  Chris Gayle and Kohli batting ~ solace, Dale Steyn bowling….  First ball 2 runs; 1 off the next; Kohli struck 4 of the third; 4th a speedy 147 kph – single – 5th struck Gayle hoists for a six – a single off the last delivery left RCB in lurch.

Great match and young Hanuma Vihari Man of the match …..

With regards – S. Sampathkumar.
