Poem 217 - An IPL Match

This time I've written on a cricket match, from a tournament held in India. For those of you who don't know about it , the poem I've written about is of two teams, RCB - Royal Challengers Bangalore and CSK - Chennai Super Kings, which ended in an exciting last ball, and for you IPL (Indian Premier League)  lovers who already knew it, here's my post- 
Oh! What an exciting match it was yesterday
CSK verses RCB and I was supporting RCB all the way
First Gayle got out cheaply for RCB, and I thought all was gone
But Kohli came to bat and decided the show must go on

He smashed quite a bit with fellow cricketer de Villiers 
And for a moment they had CSK in fears
They set a good target, and had a good start in bowling as well
And many bowlers, enjoyed quite good a spell

But the CSK batting was extraordinary
And till  the last over, I was full of worry
And then two required from the last ball
A catch to a fielder made us think we had won it all

But Alas! The bowler had bowled a no ball
And RCB's rejoices in the dumps it did fall
For CSK had snatched an amazing victory, 
But it's just a match, so who cares? Well, let it be!
