OMG, OMG, OMG. I told you so!!
In the 2008 season, they were last. But in 2009, they're first!
WHEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! That's the greatest revenge.
Geez, I can't write anymore. I have to go and celebrate. Bye!

They had the victory in their grasp. They did.
But then Rohit Sharma came along, smashed a few 6's and 4's in the final over and then BOOM! Deccan won. (Sorry to all the KKR fans out there.)
Deccan Chargers 166 for 4 (Gilchrist 43) beat Kolkata Knight Riders 160 for 5 (Hodge 48, Hussey 43) by six wickets.
One HD's coverage made me laugh. I remember, quote -
"One HD apologises for the technical difficulties we are now experiencing from South Africa."
It was something like that. And another thing, after the game finished, they went back to our own Aussie hosts or whatever you wanna call 'em. The guy on the right was laughing his head off. Love it, love it. He even handed some tissues to the guy who went for KKR on the left! Anybody know their names? That certainly, for me, made up for the technical difficulties throughout the entire game.
Kolkata are still last on the leaderboard whilst Deccan are right up there at third.

Deccan Chargers 166 for 7 (Smith 47, Symonds 30, Yusuf 3-34) beat Rajasthan Royals 113 (Asnodkar 44, Rohit 3-12) by 53 runs.
Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee! Here, have a read.
I need to do my homework.

Oh my Gawd. Here are some reasons why Brett Lee is such a good player -
- He's a great bowler (and can bat a bit too)
- All round nice guy
- Great hair
I didn't get to watch all of this since I got home from a party like at 11:00. Happy birthday Aunty! :)
I reached the last 10 overs of Punjab's innings though. A few wickets tumbled but then Binga came along, got singles, smashed a six and some more singles to guide the Kings home. Great work Bing, but please, never, ever do that again to the Deccan Chargers. I felt like screaming but I didn't because it was midnight and people might have gotten p!$$3d, lol. Or even worried.
And as I write this, I am struggling to find an article covering the story that is worthy enough to link...
And I, uh, finally found one. Here you go.
Chargers are 4th on the board with Punjab right behind them.
Btw, Happy Mother's Day.

He made 44 off 19 balls against the Chennai Super Kings. And as I said in my last post - 37-years-old and he's still got it. He gave the Deccan Chargers the start they needed. Bravo Mr Gilly.
But it wasn't just Gilchrist who made DC win. It was Herschelle Gibbs - 69 off 56 balls. He was right there 'til the very end. Bravo Mr Gibbs.
And let's not forget the bowlers. Ojha, 2 overs, 2 wickets, 11 runs. Enough said. Bravo Mr Ojha. I don't know what Gilly was thinking when he didn't make Ojha bowl a few more. Oh well, it doesn't matter now since they won, lol.
Now, I don't know about you guys but apart from a weird commentator making sheep noises while saying DLF Maximum (yes, I remember this clearly), this was a great game for the Chargers.
DC are still leading the standings with 4/4 next to their names. They really have improved from last year.
Here's what it looks like at the moment.
Bravo Deccan Chargers.

That's what I've been thinking for the past year or so! I can't believe they've just noticed.
I mean, come on. Gilly blasted three fours in the first over while playing for his team Deccan Chargers against the Royal Challengers. And that's from my memory. I never forget anything that Gilly does. He made 71 off 45 balls. Now, you gotta admit, even at the age of 37, he's still got it. WHOO HOO!
At the moment, DC are at the top of the leader board.
Change of captain, uniform and attitude. They can do it this year, I'm sure of it.
Ok, now back to the match, 22 April 2009. That was two days ago. Sorry about the late post, I've been busy. So yeah, I stayed up for the entire thing watching Gilly's team strive for victory. I always wake up at 12:00pm nowadays so that I have the energy to stay up and watch these matches. I'm devoted and proud of it and here's proof.
Wow, my voice sounds weird...
ANYWAY, yeah, see that? I took that with my mobile phone. I'm devoted.
Moving on. Gilly and Rohit were awesome. They were the stand out batsmen in that match. Actually, well done to the entire team! They're way different from last year, thank God.
If you're a fan of DC, good on you. :)
They're next match is on 25 April, Saturday. Thankfully, it's 8:00pm AEST.
I'll be watching.
Go Deccan Chargers.

HAPPY EASTER! (I know it's late but yeah).
Anyway, I'm feeling happy, right?
and then suddenly, I see the news -
Gibbs sets up series win
Really? I completely forgot that the cricket was still on. (I don't have Foxtel!!)
Apparently, Australia lost. Herschy got a
Mehh, SA won by 61 runs.

Yes, I have decided to change the name of my blog.
It shall now be called
THE YOUNG CRICKETER
My reason for this is because I have just recently found out that there are other cricket blogs out there called Cricket Etc. So yeah, to make it easier for you, I will change my URL.
www.theyoungcricketer.blogspot.com it shall be.
So please, if you have me on your blogroll, please change it.

Look, look, look, this is my homework!
Science - read pages 161-167 and fill out classifying animals worksheet
TECH - finish game flow chart
Maths - complete integers code worksheet
Italian - pages 44 and 45 plus about me assignment which has to be written in Italian
Art - complete three sheets about Brett Whiteley and Donald Friend
Most of that is due on Monday or Tuesday next week.
Now can you see why I'm complaining? See, see, see? Is this the right amount of homework to be given to a 12-year-old? *Sigh.
They say it's good for me, so why am I complaining? I reckon it's something natural that just comes to kids.
So yeah, I'm just surfing the net, at the moment. Er, I typed in the word cricket into google and looky here, this is what came up -
Obviously, the second and third ones I have already clicked because they're in purple, LOL.
Don't you think it's kind of funny how Cricket Australia are the first one to come up. I mean, there are heaps of other countries out there that play cricket but Australia's site happens to be the one that comes up first. Meh. Ok, I know this post is
quite very random but bear with me.
Now, I am going to type cricket into Youtube. And looky here again! Another funny thing comes up.
Did you notice that most of them were from England?

I don't really know what's happening between Australia and South Africa because I don't have Foxtel (gee, thanks mum), so I have to rely on cricket sites.
Let's see, cricket.com.au say -
"An unbroken 83-run partnership between Ashwell Prince and Hashim Amla helped South Africa take charge on day two of the third Test against Australia with the hosts reaching lunch in Cape Town at 1-148."
Now, that's not very good. Australia aren't going so well.
Well, this sucks.
