'Deccan is the champion 0f IPL 2009'
It was a day for the bowlers as Deccan outsmarted Bangalore to win the second edition of IPL to complete a fairytale turnaround for a team which finished at the bottom of IPL 2008.
After Bangalore Royal Challengers (BRC), led by Anil Kumble’s fantastic spells restricted Deccan Chargers (DC) to a reasonably low score of 143, one would have thought that it would to be a one-sided affair.
But he was outsmarted later on by the disciplined spells of DC bowlers Singh, Ojha and Symonds who improved upon their earlier performances to see their team through in the finals, when it mattered the most. DC turned the tables on BRC with a dose of their own medicine of discipline on the field – in bowling and fielding – which helped BRC reach the finals.
