Once again Chennai Super Kings have made it to the playoffs, with a little help from Deccan Chargers. Since their 16th and final league game on Thursday, a defeat to Kings XI Punjab, Super Kings’ fate depended on three other results. Everything had gone in positive way to Chennai, but RCB remains rival till the end. It was a do or die match for RCB and it was expected to make it to playoff as the opposition team is considered to be underdog of IPL-2012. The beginning went in favour of RCB picking up all the crucial wickets of Deccan in quick session but Duminy single—handedly took the attack to the opposition and sent the bowlers for a leather hunt to rack up runs in quick time. With the strong batting line up, a target of 133 runs seemed to be so simple for RCB until Dale Steyn produced a fiery pace bowling spell of three for just eight runs which includes dangerous Chris Gayle and his opening partner Tillakaratne Dilshan. So finally in the 5th edition of IPL, defending champions Chennai Super Kings go through the play—offs stage, along with table—toppers Delhi Daredevils, Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians. CSK is the only team who has made to the semi finals so far.
