Key moments of the IPL 3



SUPER-CHARGED DHONI We all know MS Dhoni as the ultimate captain cool who hardly shows an emotion. But he simply lost it in chilly Dharamsala last Sunday after he deposited Kings XI seamer Irfan Pathan into the hills to help Chennai Super Kings get into the semifinal. He ranted the choicest obscenities, pumped his fists and boxed himself on his right cheek. Like Pete Sampras' public breakdown at the Rod Laver Arena during his 1995 Australian Open quarterfinal against Jim Courier, this was quite an image-changer.

Murali Vijay's savage assault on the senses and royals

It was a belter of a track at Chepauk all right, but no one was ready to witness what they saw. For long, M Vijay had a reputation of being a grafter. After all, in Gambhir's absence, he opened in Test cricket with the game's most deadly destroyer, Sehwag. Little did people know that the Chennai lad could bat like him too. His 56-ball 127 was a perfect advertisement of that. It set off a debate on his inclusion in the World T20 team. As luck would have it, Sehwag got injured and he is in.

Yogesh Nagar's catch to dismiss Jayasuriya

When he came on to field for his injured skipper Gautam Gambhir against Mumbai Indians at the Kotla, one thought he would just run around, send in some throws and step out quietly at the completion of 20 overs. But when he jumped, turned, stretched and swiveled, all in one motion - like Nadia Comaneci - to send back Sanath Jayasuriya, at midoff , one knew that it was the catch of the tournament. So what if the event was just six-days old.

Vinay's over to Sachin and co


Vinay Kumar had seldom experienced the kind of atmosphere that was prevalent in Mumbai on a humid Saturday night. With the crowd going "Sachin, Sachin!", he didn't seem to have much of a chance, especially after he had conceded over 15 runs in his first two overs. In his third though, he brought it upon himself to silence the crowd. He nipped out the wickets of Rayudu, Tendulkar and Bravo to decisively swing the game in favour of RCB.

Rusty magic

Juan Theron wasn't a known face till March 21. For much of that Sunday night, the Kings XI pacer was still finding ways to overcome jet lag at the Chepauk against Chennai Super Kings. But that was till Sangakkara threw the ball to him. Once that happened, he was wide awake and he bowled a great spell of 4-0-17-2 , which enabled Kings to defend 136 to force the game into a super over. In the super over, he got Hayden and conceded just 10, which enabled them to record the first win after three losses.
