Captain Marvel eliminates Prince Charming

Its the second semifinals of the IPL, a day when prince charming(Yuvraj) was running high in confidence when his team performed well in the league against the Rajasthan Royals.And for the never say die,Captain Marvel(MSD) its yet another encounter with the Kings XI with a 2-0 status trying to outwit the former.

The match between the 2nd place Kings XI and the 3th place Super Kings took place at Mumbai,yesterday the 31st of May. Winning the toss Yuvi decided to bat first on a pitch without grass. As for Captain Marvel,he started the overs with Off spinner ace Murlitharan to start the rampage for the side. Marsh started his innings with a cover drive. And people would have guessed that the side is gaining momentum to make a big role.Well then the wickets started falling with the edge from Hopes. And then followed by in-form Sangakkara. Followed by prince charming himself without knowing the answers for the doubts raised from the variation of speed,line and length.Then the Kings XI promising batsman Marsh fell for 23. And the side ended up for 113 with the tail enders dragging the score to some extent after the batsmen failed to impress.Ntini took 2 wickets with a run out cause adding value for his side.Apart from Gony,Morkel chipped in with 2 wickets each with murlitharan taking 1 wicket.

Session 2 started with CSK Vidyut and Parthiv to open the innings after Stephen Fleming departed.The innings started merrily but then fell for the short ball trick once again.After that Raina stepped in with the booming confidence from his previous match's good performance and then started to march forward towards the winning path.Both Parthiv and Raina made half centuries and demoralized the opposition's attack.On the other hand prince charming didnt have the clue to overcome or even impress people with a performance.Despite the batting and bowling depth in the team,the Kings XI failed in all departments to the CSK.

On the whole CSK overpowered Kings XI and outwitted them with a 3-0 lead over Kings XI.Ntini was judged the Man of the match.
