Deccan Chargers’ skipper Kumar Sangakkara’s decision to bat first seemed to be a blunder as opener Parthiv Patel was dismissed for a golden duck. The run-rate crept over six after 12th over when Sangakkara and Australian stalwart Cameroon White launched an assault and scored 95 off the last six overs.
Sangakkara’s 82 and White’s 74 helped them reach a formidable 186-4.
In reply, Warriors replicated Chargers and got off to a good start with Manish Pandey bagging a golden duck. Michael Clarke and Sourav Ganguly put on 90 for the second wicket, but they failed to catch up with the required run rate. Despite Steve Smith’s fireworks at the end, they fell short by 13 runs.
