Mumbai Indians vs Deccan Chargers Highlights - 2nd Leg

Watch cricket highlights - Mumbai Indians vs Deccan Chargers from IPL 2009 - the 2nd game between the two in season 2.

Scoreline: Deccan Chargers 145/6: Rohit Sharma 38 - RP Singh 4-19-2
Mumbai Indians 126/8: JP Duminy 52 - Rohit Sharma 2-6-4 including a hattrick

Hara-kiri at its purest. Committed without even the realistic possibility of loss looming.

From 49 to get off 36 balls, with JP Duminy and Dwayne Bravo around, Mumbai ended up losing by 20 runs. Along the way Rohit Sharma picked up a hat-trick much like Yuvraj Singh’s hat-trick (in the sense - the hattrick ball being the first delivery of a new over). The worst part of the Mumbai collapse was that they were given a couple of reprieves by Suman and yet insisted on paying their odes to the art of hara-kiri in the modern world. Fantastic viewing stuff.

Recall: The Chargers won the earlier game - Chargers vs Mumbai - 1st Leg.

Zaheer Khan who did some shoulder-damage while diving in the last game will miss this game for Mumbai, while word is there’s a good chance Vaas might play today. Must be cos of his high success-rate vs Tendulkar.
