Somerset win a Topsy-Turvy match

The Champions League T20 match in Hyderabad (Deccan Chargers Vs Somerset) concluded late last night with all the thrills that one associates with a typical T20 match - sixes, wickets and a last-over finish.

The charts will help us look at why the match became interesting over the 2nd innings.

R-B Chart

The initial burst by the openers ensured that the difference between Runs and Balls started reducing every over. The overs from 6 to 9 (with introduction of Pragyan Ojha) increased the R-B once again. Couple of big overs off the part-timers helped reduce the R-B. The fall of the 7th wicket brought together Hildreth and Thomas. Some smart hitting and the rain (which didnt allow the spinners to grip the ball properly) decreased the R-B every over. The fact that the wickets were kept in hand till the last over ensured that the problem on hand was manageable.
