Highlights of day 7

  • It was Virat all the way yesterday at Chinnaswamy stadium in Bangalore. Leading from front, Skipper Virat Kohli scored unbeaten 93 with 11 boundaries and 4 massive sixes. Royal Challengers defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by 7 wickets to record their second win of the tournament.
  • The orange cap which Virat Kohli recived at the end of first match was transferred to Dinesh Karthik at the end of Mumbai Indian Innings. Karthik scored 86 runs of 48 balls which included 14 boundaries and 2 sixes. Veteran player Rohith Sharma too played brilliantly by scoring unbeaten 74 which helped Mumbai Indians to set a huge target of 210 for Delhi Daredevils.
  • Delhi Daredevils faced their successive third defeat of the tournament. The spectacular catch by Ricky Ponting at cover to dismiss Unmukth Chand was the highlight of the day. 

  • Only match of the day will be played between Punjab and Chennai. Chennai have won the fair play award 3 times in IPL ( 2008, 2010 & 2011) & Punjab won the same in 2009. In 2012 the fair play award was bagged by Rajasthan Royals.
  • The highest partnership by runs is in the name of Adam Gilchirst and Shaun Marsh of KIXP. In the 2011 season they scored together 206 runs for the second wicket against RCB. 

Just for laughs :)
