35th IPL match Delhi Daredevils v Mumbai Indians at East London on May 8, 2009!

Mumbai Indians had themselves to blame for the collapse against Deccan Chargers which deprived them of a spot in the semi final.

Deccan Chargers too started off with a bang, but have experienced a roadblock in the middle stages in second season of the Indian Premier League. But their caption Adam Gilchrist seems to be enjoying every moment of this up and down race.

"It’s not much about a six hitting competition, it's a game of steel between bat and ball which has been pretty exciting to watch. When you have got 8 teams with such world class players and exciting talent form India in such even conditions, it's bound to be a real cliffhanger," Gilchrist said.
