Deccan Chargers - The new IPL Champions...

Deccan Chargers it is!!! The newly crowned IPL champions of 2009 in South Africa.

Deccan Chargers - The IPL 2 Champions...

Deccan Chargers vs Bangalore Royal Challengers finals was one that was least predicted at the start of the IPL 2 season. But, these two teams which got the last two spots in the first IPL charged their way to the finals this time and the DC team has gone one more step ahead to win it, all thanks to some awesome leadership and batting by Gilchrist.

Am very much happy for Gilchrist who has been one of my favourite cricketers of all times.... but due credit should be given to Anil Kumble who inspired the Bangalore RC team to perform exceedingly well and taken them to the finals. Hats off to both Gilly and Jumbo....

Watching the closing ceremony, I felt how successful the IPL this year has become... Lalit Modi has become a global phenom of sorts for making it possible this year inspite of all the problems he had scheduling it in India.
Also, Thanks to the Rainbow nation - South Africa - for hosting our event there in such a grand manner and that too in such a short notice of less than 4 weeks. I came to know alot about South Africa only recently thro' a lovely friend - Carolyn from Johannesburg... And, I am impressed with what I saw (even though it is only thro' television) during the IPL tournament. Thank you Carolyn & Thank you SA!!! Hope to be there someday :)

  1. Wow.. new look maams. DC is rocking. I too felt pity for Kumble, esp after giving his best he was stranded on the other side of the crease watching the drama unfold!
