AB Devilliers and Dwayne Smith - Two IPL Superstars on Super Sunday...

What a Sunday it has been... Two amazing matches and amazing chases... am speechless after watching the match..

De Villiers' innings has been a simply superb one.. 17 balls 47 with 5 fours and 3 amazing sixers... don't have words to express his innings... He totally destroyed his countryman Dale Steyn, the best bowler in the world... taking him for 23 runs in the 17th over to turn the match in the favour of Bangalore Royal Challengers.  Royal Challengers chased out a target of 181 set by Deccan Chargers thanks to the De Villiers carnage and Dilshan's innings at the top.

AB de Villiers' innings has been the best I've ever seen in quite a while!!

Another amazing match between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians... Dwayne Smith hit 6, 4 and 4 off the last 3 balls.... 14 of the last 3 balls.. Anyone would bet the bowling team to win the match but T20 game is quiet weird... anything can happen and that magical turnaround happened with Dwayne Smith hitting the 14 runs in the remaining 3 balls off Hilfenhaus.

Amazing Morkel snatches victory for Delhi Daredevils

Amazing bowling performance from Morkel (this time from Morne Morkel and not his brother Albie Morkel) inspired a great win for the Delhi Daredevils against the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL 2012 match today.

Rajasthan Royals were chasing a target of 153 and were going along easily courtesy of another great innings by Ajinkya Rahane. Only 15 was required of 12 balls when Morne Morkel bowled a great penultimate over for the Delhi team giving away only 3 wickets and taking Hodge's prized wicket too.
Rahane tried hard but could score only 10 runs in the last over and Rajasthan Royals were beaten by only one run!!!

Today there was one another splendid bowling performance by Dale Steyn for the Deccan Chargers but it was for a losing cause. Steyn's hot bowling took Mumbai Indians by surprise as they found him too hard to handle. Steyn's figures of 2 for 10 doesn't show how well he has bowled. It should have been 3 for 9 but for a dolly catch miss by Amit Mishra.

Deccan Charger's Dale Steyn bowled an inspiring spell against the Mumbai Indians today

Poor Dale Steyn... he must be feeling that he got a raw deal by playing for Deccan Chargers.. his bowling spells should be winning matches but instead the rest of the Deccan Chargers team is giving it up so easily with many easy runs and dropped catches!!

Letitia Greyling, De Villiers's agent, has confirmed the engagement.
"AB asked Danielle on Sunday in India to marry him and she said yes. He is very happy."

The couple met each other about six years ago on Swart's father's lodge outside Bela-Bela (Warmbaths).
Although they've remained close friends since then, their love only blossomed about a year ago.
