Deccan ousted from Champions League

Hyderabad: Trinidad & Tobago pulled off a nerve-wracking three run victory against IPL champions Deccan Chargers in the Champions League match on Wednesday.

Chasing 150 to win, the hosts could manage just 146/9 in their stipulated 20 overs.

Chargers 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

Trinidad's victory helped Somerset into the quarter-final league from group A.

Earlier opting to field, Chargers did well to restrict Trinidad and Tobago to 149/7.

William Perkins 38 (32 ball, 6X4) and Kieron Polard 31 (14 ) were the notable run getters for Trinidad.

Chasing the modest target, Skipper Adam Glichrist (51), Y Venugopal Rao (30) and Rohit Sharma (25) batted well for Chargers but that proved insufficient to pull through their side.

The turning point of the match was when Gilchrist (6x4, 2x6) pulled Lendl Simmons straight down Keiron Pollard's throat on the deep mid-wicket boundary and Rohit followed.

Dwayne Bravo (3/24) was the most successful bowler for Trinidad & Tobago, who entered the next stage with clean slate.

Trinidad & Tobago: 149 for 7 wickets(W Perkins lbw b Edwards 38, K Pollard b Edwards 31, F Edwards 32-3)

Deccan Chargers: 146 for 9 wickets( A Gilchrist c Pollard b Simmons 51, Y Venugopal Rao c Ramdin b Rampaul 30, D Bravo 24-3)
