Deccan Chargers v Kolkata Knight Riders at Port Elizabeth

KK v DC Match 48 - May 16: Kolkata Knight Riders lose to Deccan Chargers in a very close game

After struggling through most of their innings and having a low run rate, Kolkata pulled itself together in the last 2 overs. From 117/3 in 17.5 overs, Kolkata managed to get to 160/5 at the end of their innings. Hussey took 43 off only 17 balls. The Deccan Chargers too seemed to have a slow run chase, and they ended up needing 21 runs in the last over. At times, it seemed the Knight Riders would finally be able to pull off a victory. But it was not to be - Mortaza who bowled the final over melted under pressure and 26 runs came off the last over! Deccan took 166/4 and won the game by 6 wickets. Rohit Sharma was named Man of the Match for his unbeaten 32 runs in 13 balls and sculpting the Deccan Chargers victory from the final over.
