CLT20 2014: George Bailey dismissed by Pawan Negi

Oct 2, 2014

George Bailey was dismissed by Pawan Negi in the second semi-final of Champions League Twenty 20 (CLT20) 2014 between Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK). The dismissal left KXIP reeling at 34 for 5. None of the KXIP batsman were allowed to settle, and only Manan Vohra was able to get his score in double digits.

Earlier, Dwayne Bravo and Faf du Plessis helped CSK recover from early blows and post an imposing total of 182 for seven. Parvinder Awana had taken a hat-trick, dismissing Suresh Raina, Pawan Negi and MS Dhoni in consecutive deliveries.

The two teams met thrice in the last edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) and KXIP emerged victorious in all three times. All three games saw explosive batting performances, and 200 plus totals were achieved in five of the six innings played.

In the final analysis, both teams are extremely strong on talent as well as team spirit. It should be a great game of cricket, and one thing is certain – whatever total the team batting first sets, the team batting second can chase it down.
