Venue: Feroz Shah Kotla Delhi
Date: April 18, 2010
Toss: Deccan Chargers elected to bat
Result: Deccan Chargers Won by 11 runs

In a virtual semi final i.e. the winner moving on to semifinals, Deccan Chargers and Delhi Daredevils were facing each other at Ferzo Shah Kolta ground in Delhi. Deccan Chargers won the toss and elected to bat first. In this do or die match, Gilchrist once again failed to give Deccan’s a solid start. Once he was out, wickets started to fell at regular interval.Deccan Chargers were reduced to 66/4 in 9 overs and they needed some one to score fast runs. Symonds came to the rescue of Chargers as he scored a brilliant 54 off 30 balls (3*4,5*6). He took the score past 100 and it looked that Delhi bowlers had no answer to him. But then Mishra got the priced wicket of Symonds and with his wicket, Delhi came roaring back in the game. Delhi bowlers gave just 29 runs in last 5.3 overs and limited Deccan Chargers to a total of 145/7 in 20 overs.

Delhi Daredevils needed 146 to move into semi finals but Deccan Chargers were in no mood to let them win so easily, Deccan’s bowlers started of really well and got rid of D Warner in the second over. Soon Sehwag and Dilshan also got out leaving Delhi Daredevils struggling at 25/3 in 3.4 overs. Last match star and Delhi captain could not repeat his performance this time and was out for 4. With 4 top order batsmen out for just 39, the match was equally balanced in favor of both teams. Though at one stage it looked Delhi had an upper hand but the bowlers of Deccan Chargers got wickets at crucial time and made the match a real thriller. After 10 overs Delhi were 59/4 and needed 86 in last 10 overs to qualify for semi finals. Delhi lost two quick wickets and were struggling at 72/6 in 12.5 overs. P Collingwood kept the hunt on for Delhi Daredevils and in the last 2 overs they needed 27 to win. Nehra and Collingwood scored 10 runs in the 19th over and in final over they needed 17 to win. The bowl was in the hand of C Vaas and he did not let the captain down and bowled a wonderful last over and gave just 6 runs and thus Deccan won the match by 11 runs and thus enter semifinals.

Delhi Daredevils are out of DLF IPL 2010.
