2008: Another high scoring match in the first season of IPL. Batting first against RR, DC set a mighty target of 215 thanks to Andrew Symonds 117 off just 53 balls. Coming into bat RR batsmen got a good start as Graeme Smith scored 71 off 45 balls. But that wasn’t enough and RR needed more firepower, which came from inform Yusuf Pathan who scored 61 in just 28 balls and set a strong foundation to reach 215. Last over required 17 balls and on the crease was Shane Warne. After Pankaj Singh scored 3 off first two balls and gave strike to Warne, it seemed tough to win as Symonds was bowling well and Warne wasn’t known for his batting. But to everyones surprise in the next three balls Warne hit a four and two sixes to guide RR to victory. This is one of the biggest chase in IPL history till date.

2010: 3rd place match between RCB and DC. This was very low scoring match and all credit for it goes to Jumbo. Coming in to bat Deccan Chargers could only score 82 as Anil Kumble led the bowling attack and took 4 wickets by giving away only 16 runs off 3.3 overs of his. As RCB batsmen came into bat, they started well and won the match 25 balls to spare at the loss of only 1 wicket.

It will be interesting to see if this year’s match between KKR and RCB can make it to the history books.
