IPL Qualifier 2: Chennai beat Bangalore in low scoring thriller as veterans Nehra and Hussey excel

Ranchi was at its raucous best as its favourite son MS Dhoni masterminded another win for the Chennai Super Kings to send them through to their 6th IPL final in 8 years, against an old foe in the Mumbai Indians on Sunday.

The Super Kings eked out a narrow 3 wicket win against the Royal Challengers Bangalore in a low scoring thriller at the JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi on Friday night.

A couple of outstanding half-centuries from AB de Villiers and Mandeep Singh helped the Royal Challengers Bangalore hammer the Rajasthan Royals by 71 runs to power into the penultimate game of IPL Season 8 against the Chennai Super Kings in Ranchi on Friday.

RCB made the most of winning a good toss and posted an outstanding total of 180-4 in their 20 overs on a grassy pitch in Pune that was definitely offering something to the seamers early on.


Qualifier 1: Mumbai Indians cruise past Chennai into the Final of IPL Season 8

The Mumbai Indians produced yet another dominant performance, very much akin with their displays in the second half of this season, to power past the Chennai Super Kings by 25 runs into the Final of IPL Season 8.

Having won the toss, Mumbai decided to make first use of a slightly slow Wankhede Stadium pitch, and posted an excellent score of 187-6 on the board in their 20 overs. Their opening partnership of Lendl Simmons and Parthiv Patel continued to flourish, with the former making an outstanding 65 from just 51 deliveries, while the latter chipped in with 35 from 25 balls.


IPL Match 56: Mumbai take second place with thumping win against Hyderabad

The Mumbai Indians completed a fairytale turnaround to their season by booking their place in the play-off game against the Chennai Super Kings at the Wankhede Stadium on Tuesday with a thumping 9 wicket win over the Sunrisers Hyderabad, who appeared to still be reeling from their devastating late loss to the Royal Challengers Bangalore earlier this week.

The Sunrisers won the toss and elected to make first use of the pitch at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal. It proved to be a disastrous decision as they soon found themselves reeling at 7-2 with both openers Shikhar Dhawan (1) and David Warner (6) back in the pavilion. Dhawan was cleaned up by a quick yorker from Lasith Malinga while his Australian counterpart fell to a short delivery from Man of the Match Mitchell McClenaghan.


IPL Match 55: Bangalore stranded by mid-game washout

The Royal Challengers Bangalore booked a place in the play-offs of IPL Season 8, but missed out on a chance of making it to the top 2, and will hence go head to head against the Rajasthan Royals in the eliminator game next week. Their match against the Delhi Daredevils, which considering the gulf in quality between the two sides would have gone their way, was washed out midway through the contest after the Daredevils batted first and posted a challenging 187-5

Delhi's excellence with the bat was all thanks to their South African duo of Quinton de Kock and JP Duminy who struck contrasting half-centuries to help the Daredevils post a competitive total at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on Sunday afternoon.


IPL Match 54: Royals book place in final 4 leaving Kolkata on the brink

The Rajasthan Royals booked their place in the knock-out rounds of season 8 of the Indian Premier League with a thrilling 9 run victory over the Kolkata Knight Riders in a must win match for both sides.

Both teams made some surprise selections, with Kolkata leaving out star spinners Sunil Narine and Brad Hogg, and instead recalling veteran Pakistani allrounder Azhar Mahmood, while the Rajasthan Royals handed a debut to lanky seamer Brainder Sran in a clutch game.
