IPL20 India Suman, Symonds show keep DC in race to semifinals

T Suman (78 not out) played the innings of life while Andrew Symonds gave him the perfect support with a 24-ball 53-run cameo as Deccan Chargers beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by seven wickets to stay afloat for a semifinal berth in the Indian Premier League here today.

Chasing a competitive 184, Suman came up with runs when it mattered most for his team and shared an unbeaten 46-ball 91-run fourth-wicket stand with Symonds as the title holders overhauled the target comfortably with four balls to spare.

Suman bejeweled his innings with six fours and three sixes while Symonds blitzkrieg included five boundaries and three huge hits over the fence.

Earlier Jacques Kallis (68) and Virat Kohli (58) put on a 52-ball 95-run fifth wicket partnership to power Royal Challengers Bangalore to 184 for six.
