Deccan Chargers Discharged by Mauler Yousuf Pathan

pradhyumn thakurContributor IMarch 27, 2010

Rajasthan Royals registered an incredible eight-wicket victory by putting a halt to the winning streak of Deccan Chargers.

Batting first, Deccan Chargers struggled to get to a defendable total of 148 for 9, all credit goes to the bowlers, who bowled strategically throughout the inning and never let any batsmen to set on the crease.

Rohit Sharma took onus to carry DCs to a respectable score with his 49 of 35 balls with three skyscraping sixes.

The Jaipur-based side was at its best in all three departments of the game: bowling, fielding, and of course, batting.

Royals innings proved to be a one-man show again after Yousuf went berserk with his bat, scoring 73 runs off 34 balls with eight massive sixes.

Although Royals are now in the third position with six points from six matches, they indeed had to work on their batting, as until now they are totally dependent on Yousuf.

They have to find at least a couple of batsmen to take the pressure off Pathan's shoulder so he can continue to play his natural game.
