Another Icon Player Comes out With a Wonder

Well until now it was only Virender Sehwag who was found to prove his icon status by having two match winning knocks against his mane,there was one more to join when Sourav Ganguly was found to do what he was supposed to so as to prove his icon status.For he was found belting the ball to not only score a 57 ball 91 but also lead his team to four victories from 8 games till date.

It all didn't happen overnight as words go out.The man had to wait patiently until he got his rhythm right which took as many as ten overs during which the scoreboard read 73/1.And a miracle was awaiting as he along with David Hussey put on 115 runs off the last 7 overs.And a rare feat happened when the Kolkata Knight Riders when they were found to cross the 200 run mark.

Even the Deccan Chargers-unlike the Royal Challengers Bangalore were found to put in some sort of resistance when they came close to chasing the mammoth total but ended 23 short when their innings stopped at 181/7 after the end of the 20th over.Courtesy a 42-ball 71 by Venugopal Rao,whose splendid efforts have so far resulted in only his team's loss.
