CL T20 First Semifinal: Match of Records Sends RCB to Final

The match between 2009 Champions League winner New South Wales and 2010 semifinalist Royal Challengers Bangalore saw a fest of boundaries. 26 sixes were hit and RCB chased 200-plus total in record second consecutive match.

6 wickets were lost and 407 runs were scored in 38.3 overs. Dilshan emerged as the best bowler giving only 10 runs in 4 overs, while Cummins grabbed all the 4 wickets for NSW.

The sixes team hit 204 runs with 9 balls remaining. Another high score entertaining match knocked out another Australian team. Both teams will remember the big hits of RCB top-order for some time.

Warner’s second consecutive unbeaten century created new record of sixes. But it could not produce the same result for NSW. In the end appears NSW was too dependent on Warner for onslaught, unlike RCB which started hitting from both ends.
