Kings XI Punjab on road to semi-final

24May08

Half centuries by Shaun Marsh and Kumar Sangakkara led Kings XI PInjab to victory. Earlier, the Deccan Chargers started off well with Adam Gilchrist and Herschelle Gibbs providing a solid start. Rohit Sharma continued the  good work with another half century as the Deccan Chargers managed to post total of 175/4. But that total seemed never enough with the kind of start that Marsh and Kumar provided. Gilchrist was successful in slowing down the Mohali team to a certain extent by bringing on the spinners. But in the it was Kings XI Punjab who emerged victorious with Shaun Marsh being the man of the match for his superb 60. This win assures Yuvraj’s Kings of a semi final berth, other teams who have already won the semi-final place are Shane Warne’s Rajasthan Royals and Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings. The match between Delhi Daredevils and Mumbai Indians on Saturday would be interesting to watch as the winner would go grab the last semi-final berth.
