Morkel to Uthpp, out Lbw!! Wow! Ws it going down? brve cll from the umpire to give tht. lbie generlly gets the bll to shpe wy from the right-hnder, but this one hits the sem nd drts bck in, Uthpp ws on the shuffle s he missed the flick. The impct ws on leg-stump, might hve been just kissing the leg-pole. 50-50 cll nd it goes in fvour of Pune. Just the strt MS would hve spoken bout in the huddle. First time in this edition wicket hs fllen off the first bll of the innings. Uthpp lbw b Morkel 0(1)

4

Morkel to Gmbhir, FOUR, there comes the fmous Gmbhir steer. On length nd just outside off, Gmbhir dbs it wide of the slip fielder, third mn ws squre nd the bll rced wy to the fence. He is off nd running

4

Morkel to Gmbhir, FOUR, bck to bck boundries for Gmbhir. Short nd width offered outside off, Gmbhir's eyes lit up seeing tht, flshed nd flshed hrd, the thickish outside edge flew over the slip cordon

4

Morkel to Surykumr Ydv, FOUR, no stopping this one. He might hve tken the wicket off the first bll, but lbie concedes 15 runs fter tht. Short nd wide, Surykumr rides the bounces nd crcks it pst diving cover-point, he is off the mrk in style s well

4

Perera o Suryakumar Yadav, FOUR, delicaely done. Suryakumar used he pace of he bowler, he lengh was also shor and i allowed him o ge under i, ramped i fine and bea hird man in he deep

4

Morkel to Surykumr Ydv, FOUR, top shot! Held the pose for the cmers s well. Everything right bout the shot. Fullish nd on off, Surykumr presents the stright bt nd high elbow, on-drives it pst mid-on. Timing ws lso exquisite

4

Morkel to Surykumr Ydv, FOUR, MS is up to the stumps but tht doesn't stop lbie from leking runs. nother full delivery on the stumps, Surykumr lens forwrd nd flicks it hndsomely, mid-wicket dives but cn't stop the bll

W

Morkel to Gmbhir, out Gmbhir Run Out!! 1 run completed. Btmn nd Robin gone. KOL hve relied hevily on their opening btsmen nd both of them hve gone cheply tody. There ws never second. Gmbhir tucks the bck of length delivery to the on-side, no one t mid-wicket. Tiwry rn forwrd from mid-on, collected the bll nd fired well-directed throw to Dhoni, who whipped the bils off. Gmbhir dived, but ws still short. The squre leg umpire didn't even bother to go upstirs. Gmbhir run out (S Tiwry/Dhoni) 11(5) [4s-2]

6

to Suryakumar Yadav, SIX, fabulous shot! It was the carrom ball and Suryakumar picked it. Read it from the hand, knew mid-on was in the circle and hence took the aerial route, lofted it over the long-on fence for a maximum

4

Perera o Suryakumar Yadav, FOUR, good lengh ball on he fourh/fifh sump line, Suryakumar chips i on he up o he righ of mid-off, Faf gives chase only o rerieve i from he fence. Yadav is looking good here

6

to Suryakumar Yadav, SIX, no turn this time and Suryakumar dispatches it over long-on. Tossed up on off, Suryakumar gets a good stride forward, lofts handsomely over long-on. That is another superb shot from the Mumbai batsman

W

Bhatia to Shakib, out Bowled!! Cleaned 'im up. The off-cutte does the tick fo Bhatia. Pune needed this as the patneship was looking dangeous. It was on a fulle length, Shakib went fo the expansive dive, the ball did not ise as much as he expected, gets a thickish inside edge onto the leg-stump. Dhoni is delighted and so too is Bhatia. KOL's dugout looks nevous. Shakib b Bhatia 3(9)

4

Ashwin to Y Pathan, FOUR, googly on leg-stump, Pathan uses those wrists to whip it behind square on the leg-side, placed it well as the fielder at deep backward square had no chance of cutting that off

OT

Ashwin to Suryakumar Yadav, 1 run, a day of firsts today. Maiden T20 League fifty for Suryakumar. Has made use of the opportunity. Raises the bat and acknowledges the applause. But there is a job still to do. Pushed through on off, wristed away to long-on

6

Ashwin to Y Pathan, SIX, first time Ashwin has bowled one in Pathan's arc and he disappears. Fullish and on the stumps, Pathan sinks low to get underneath it, tonks it well over long-on for a maximum

4

Bhatia to Y Pathan, FOU, poo delivey fom Bhatia. Shot and down leg, Pathan swivels and helps it behind squae with a pull, Muugan Ashwin uns acoss, dives and flicks it in. But the ball olls back and the thid umpie confims the same

6

Ashwin to Y Pathan, SIX, this is the Yusuf Pathan we all know. Anything pitched up and it is murdered down the ground. Once again crouches low to get the elevation, hammers it deep into the long-on crowd

OT

Ashwin to Suryakumar Yadav, 1 run, the fifty run stand comes up. Floated up outside off, Suryakumar eases the drive to sweeper cover

W

Bhatia to Y Pathan, out Lbw!! That looked dead. Just when you think one side is taking contol, the othe comes up with a ploy to spoil it. Pathan was well-set and he plays all aound this one. It was nothing but a staight delivey - quicke in fact fom Bhatia, Pathan shuffles acoss to ty and nudges it into the on-side, missed and is stuck in font of off-stump. No hesitation fom the umpie and Pune have a lifeline. Y Pathan lbw b Bhatia 36(27) [4s-2 6s-2]

4

Ashwin to Suryakumar Yadav, FOUR, Steven Smith had no chance. Floated up around off, Suryakumar stays leg-side of the ball and lofts it inside out over extra cover, Smith ran the circumference from long-off, but was well wide of him

W

Ashwin to Suryakumar Yadav, out Lbw!! Huge wicket for Pune. The ploy to continue with Ashwin has worked for Dhoni. He backed the youngster and he delivered. It was the wrong 'un and Suryakumar was all at sea, didn't pick it. Shuffled across to nudge, missed and is rapped right in front of middle. The ball would have gone on to hit leg-stump. End of a fine innings from Suryakumar, but he should have stayed there to finish the game off. Suryakumar Yadav lbw b Ashwin 60(49) [4s-6 6s-2]

6

Sharma to A Russell, SIX, that's right in Russell's arc. Dhoni immediately walks up to his bowler. Floated up outside off, the length allowed Russell to get under that, after he did, he smashed it over extra cover for a huge six

6

Sharma to A Russell, SIX, this over might just turn the match in KOL's favour. Fired in on a fuller length, Russell clobbers it over long-on. Smith was stationed there, but he could only watch the ball sail over him

W

Perera o A Russell, ou Caugh by du Plessis!! Perera you beauy! his is a big, big wicke for Pune. Russell knows wha he has done, is livid wih himself as he huds his ba ino he ground. he slower delivery from Perera, bowled back of he hand, Russell cleared his fron leg and misimed his heave o long-on. Faf is oo good a fielder o drop hose. Hangs on calmly. Pune ahead now. A Russell c du Plessis b Perera 17(11) [6s-2]

4

Perera o Chawla, FOUR, shabby work. Perera is no happy. iwary he culpri. Wha should have been one, ends up being a boundary. Very full and ouside off, Chawla sinks low and slices i behind square on he off-side, iwary runs across from hird man, doesn' bend down compleely and allows he ball o escape even afer geing a hand

6

Morkel to Sthish, SIX, tht is mety blow. Sthish knew he hd connected. Didn't bother to run. Length delivery right in the slot, Sthish smcks it from the middle over long-on. Went flt nd bck into the crowd

W

Morkel to Sthish, out Bowled!! There comes nother twist in the tle. Sthish hd hit six nd looked to be the mn to do it for KOL. But lbie rttles his stumps. Nothing but full delivery, you-miss-I-hit kind of stuff from Morkel, Sthish missed with the whip cross the line nd the bll crshed into middle. This is going down the wire folks. Sthish b Morkel 10(8) [6s-1]

W

Perera o Chawla, ou Caugh by Smih!! ha's a op cach under pressure. Smih has made amends. Perera is doing i for Pune. Bu he quesion is can he defend 5 more? Full delivery and Chawla wen for he glory hi, didn' ge i off he mea and skewed i owards long-on, Smih runs forward, dives full lengh and akes a superb cach. Chawla c Smih b Perera 8(5) [4s-1]

6

Perera o U Yadav, SIX, KOL win by 2 wickes. I is all smiles now in he KOL dugou. Dhoni doesn' look a happy man. Umesh, who didn' do much wih he ball oday, ends up hiing he winning runs. he players shake hands. Dhoni is walking away. He looks dejeced. Perera bowled he back of he hand slower delivery, Umesh was waiing for i, kneeled down and smashed i over he long-on fence for a maximum. Immediaely pumped his fiss and Perera grimaced waching i sail over

6

orkel to Rahane, SIX, lovely shot, it was just a flick of the wrists fro Rahane, too straight fro orkel, ends up drifting onto Rahane's pads, he picked up the length and goes up and over backward square leg, went soaring over the ropes for a axiu

4

orkel to Rahane, FOUR, cracking shot, Rahane is looking in gorgeous touch, tad too full and on the stups, Rahane gets forward and shovels it up and over id-wicket, a couple of bounces and over the ropes

4

to Rahane, FOUR, excellent effort from Sathish, but he can't save the boundary this time. Good use of the crease from Rahane, went deep inside the crease, made the length look short and whipped it in front of square on the on-side. Sathish got across from the deep, put in the dive, got a hand onto it, but can't hold on

W

to du Plessis, out Bowled!! That's an absolute beauty, no wonder is chuffed to bits. This was tossed up slower and on off, drifted into the batsman and then left him a touch, du Plessis was prodding forward on the original line, the ball ripped past the outside edge and clattered into the off-stump. du Plessis looks back in horror, but he has to walk back to the hut. du Plessis b 4(9)

4

Russell to Rhne, FOUR, lovely shot, frction short nd on the stumps, Rhne swivels cross, rolls his wrists nd helps it behind squre on the on-side, there's no one in the deep nd the bll rolls wy to the fence

4

Russell to Smith, FOUR, esy pickings for Smith, Russell went for the yorker, ends up offering full toss on Smith's pds, whipped wy in front of squre on the on-side, bets the fielder getting cross to his left from deep squre leg

4

to Rahane, FOUR, that breaks the shackles! This was tossed up invitingly by , Rahane went down on his knees, rolled his wrosts and swept it in front of square on the on-side, rolled awato the fence in a hurry

4

to Smith, FOUR, drops one too short and just outside off, Smith rocks back and pulls it wide of long-on, beats the two men getting across to a nicely, much needed for Pune

W

to Rahane, out Smith Run Out!! That's silly running from Smith, easy run-out is the end result. This was flatter and on the stumps, Rahane made room and drilled it back towards the bowler, Smith was definitely not watching the action, he was looking to pinch a quick single, all had to do was to collect the ball, run back at the stumps and remove the zing bails. The partnership has been broken. Smith run out () 31(28) [4s-2]

OT

to Rahane, 1 run, on a length and just outside off, eased down towards long-on, raises yet another T20 League fifty for Rahane

6

to T Perera, SIX, that's a flat six from Perera, length delivery outside off, it was the slower ball as well, Perera had to reach out for the slog, doesn't get it off the middle, it went flat and just over the leaping deep mid-wicket fielder

W

to T Perera, out Bowled!! Perera's cameo is over! This is turning out to be an excellent spell from , this was the slower off-cutter, pitched around middle and slanted across the left-hander, Perera was way too early on the slog, missed it completely and the off-stump takes a beating. Big wicket for KOL, another couple of overs of Perera could have been massive for Pune. T Perera b 12(9) [6s-1]

6

to Rahane, SIX, spoke too soon, this is a classical hit, made room to a well flighted delivery and chips it high and over cover, the timing is sublime and it soars over the long-off fence

6

Yadav to Rahane, SIX, that's excellent batting from Rahane, moves across his stmps, mesh made it easy for room by offering a fll toss, he ses the pace on the ball and helps it over the long leg fence for a maximm

W

to Rahane, out Caught&Bowled!! That's as easy as it gets! This was tossed up on the stumps, Rahane backed away on the drive, got too close to the pitch of the ball, ends up drilling it back to - stomach high catch and holds on, nonchalantly throws it back at the umpire. Rahane falls after an enterprising knock. Rahane c and b 67(52) [4s-4 6s-3]

6

to A Morkel, SIX, massive, this was tossed up right into Morkel's zone, he gets a big stride forward, gets hold of the slog sweep and sends it high and deep into the stands at widish long-on

6

to A Morkel, SIX, back-to-back sixes from Morkel, much needed for Pune, Suryakumar Yadav almost brought out a stunner, but the ball just evaded him, this was the off-spinner from , Morkel went for the slog sweep, the ball went right off the base of the bat. SK was interested all the while, lunged backwards as he went with both hands, ended up tipping it over the ropes

W

Yadav to A Morkel, ot Bowled!! Another cameo from a Pne batsman, bt they needed more from Morkel. This was a short of a length delivery on off, Morkel was looking to gide it towards third man, was cramped for room, ends p getting a bottom edge - onto the stmps. The zing bails flashes and Morkel is on his way. A Morkel b Yadav 16(9) [6s-2]

Yadav to Dhoni, byes, FOR, thappa makes an awfl mess of a simple stop, this was the slower short ball otside off, Dhoni was looking to rn it towards third man and missed. thappa allowed the ball to go throgh his legs, for bons rns for Pne

6

orkel to Dhoni, SIX, vintage Dhoni! Too short fro orkel, Dhoni was waiting for it, swivels across and pulls it high and behind square on the on-side, went soaring into the stands

4

orkel to Dhoni, FOUR, this is excellent cricket all around, orkel alost got his yorker right, ight just have been a yard short, Dhoni clears his left leg, jas his bat down and whips it over id-wicket for a boundary

4
