Going by the way RCB played their innings, piling up 75 runs in the last five overs, no one would have expected Deccan Chargers to put an a valiant fight. But knowing that the pitch was a batting pitch one would have still expected good amount of fireworks. And Deccan Chargers did not disappoint in any way. Symonds and Suman put up a partnership which turned into unlimited entertainment for the crowd. It was a full paisa vasool for the day. While the K-Squared couple drove RCB's scores, the S-Squared couple finished RCB into oblivion.

What one has to keenly notice here is the fact that Suman is now the emerging threat to many other IPL teams leave alone RCB. And on another front, he is a potential no-nonsense batsman for India when they play other countries the next world cup. His knocks were no less than brilliant while DC were under immense scoring pressure requiring over 11 to 12 runs an over. From then on it was no looking back for Suman. His calmness and composure on the field, his eyes always keen to spot the ball, his precision of his decisions on directions to hammer each ball thrown at him, shows the sure qualities of a batting superstar in the making. With Sachin Tendulkar as his icon, Suman is no less than the master blaster himself in terms of the high standards he exhibits on the field. The match was poised to be a win for RCB and Suman’s only motto was to turn that situation around. Irrespective of the type of bowler and the bowling style and speed Suman always had atleast one new place to send the ball to all around the field.
Its finally heartening to see a young guy take on Tendulkar’s traits and who knows one day he would break all records yet another time! Finally South India is seeing the emergence of yet another great batsman, who has nothing but finesse in his working style! Congratulations to you Suman on today’s brilliant performance, and needless to say, you will have much more in store for hungry fans in future! Good luck DC and Suman!!
