Deccan in despair, Somerset get second chance
Reigning IPL Champions Deccan Chargers crashed out of the Champions League after suffering a narrow three-run defeat against Trinidad and Tobago in their do-or-die Group A match.
The see-saw match witnessed pulsating action till the last ball at Rajiv Gandhi stadium.
Chasing 150 to win, the hosts could manage just 146 for nine in their stipulated 20 overs.
The hosts required eight runs off the last over but they had no recognized batsman at the crease and the tail-enders could fetch only four runs.
The victory of the Caribbean side also cleared the entry of Somerset into the quarter-final league from group A.
Deccan had lost their first match to the English County Somerset early in the event.
