All|Overs 1-50
4

Thakur to Buttler, FOUR, third man is up and Buttler squirts it right off the toe-edge to squeeze this through the gap. A poor delivery from Thakur. This is way too short and wide and although Buttler almost failed to reach out, it deserved the punishment that it got

4

Thakur to Buttler, FOUR, he's tickled that off middle and leg stump. Buttler walks right across, gets a full ball on the pads and just about gets his bat down in time. Would have been plumb had he missed

4

Sundar to Parthiv Patel, FOUR, just over mid-on. He was itching to break free. It's slightly fuller from Sundar, but Parthiv isn't quite to the pitch of it. But he goes through with the loft. Enough on that to clear the infield

4

Sundar to Parthiv Patel, FOUR, that's what he was looking for all this time. Width on offer. Parthiv lashes it away through backward point

4

Sundar to Parthiv Patel, FOUR, third boundary of the over as Sundar drops it short again and this time, Parthiv pulls him away to the deep mid-wicket boundary

4

to Buttler, FOUR, that's unfortunate for . He's deceived Buttler for lack of pace while also bowling it wide of off with Buttler swinging leg-side. The cutter grips a touch, takes a thick edge and flies fine of short third man

W

to Buttler, out Caught by Washington Sundar!! The slower ball has worked. Buttler drags it straight to long-on. He backed away looking for the big hit, maybe over mid-off, and followed him with a leg-cutter to deny him the room. The lack of pace on the ball meant that it didn't come on as well as Buttler wanted and he ended up dragging it off the inside half. Simple catch for Sundar running in. Buttler c Washington Sundar b 17(13) [4s-3]

D

to Nitish Rana, no run, did that carry to Tiwary? Oh what a big wicket that would have been. Round the wicket, slanting the ball in on a back of length and getting it to straighten a touch. Rana fences it to slip. Oh, this is close. It might have just fallen short. Centimetres

4

Thakur to Parthiv Patel, FOUR, poor from Thakur. He strays in line again. That's not what Pune want at this stage as they strive to crank up the pressure. Parthiv picks it off his hips and glances it past short fine leg

W

to Nitish Rana, out Caught by Unadkat!! Short of length, Rana heaves into the on-side but he's in no control of it whatsoever. The ball has flown off the top-edge. He's gone. Pune making a match of this. might have cut his fingers across the ball. Rana wants to heave it away off the front foot but it's onto him much quicker than he thinks. Essentially, it was a break-free short after having been kept quiet. Third man runs in and holds on. Nitish Rana c Unadkat b 3(9)

4

to Rohit, FOUR, wow. That's been driven on the up and over mid-on. Powerfully struck from Rohit. Maybe he's decided that's the way he wants to go today

W

Sundar to Parthiv Patel, out Bowled!! Maiden T20 League wicket for Sundar. He's slid that right through Parthiv. Risky shot to play really. Darted in and skidding on from round the wicket, Parthiv wants to cut it off the stumps but the ball hurries onto him. He doesn't have much room to work with either. Cleaned up. Parthiv Patel b Sundar 33(27) [4s-4]

4

to Rohit, FOUR, that's beautifully done from Rohit. He was initially beaten by the turn on this leg-break, but he didn't commit so he was able to open the bat-face and steer it past slip

4

to Rohit, FOUR, that's a magnificent shot against the turn. But because it was so full, he really didn't have to worry about it. Drifting in on middle, Rohit whips it away over mid-wicket

4

to Rohit, FOUR, walks across. Sits down. Gets under the fuller delivery and scoops it over the keeper. Almost off the toe end but with the field behind square up in the circle it seems safe

D

to Karn Sharma, no run, oh Tiwary. He puts down another. This time it goes right in, only to pop out. A fierce slap this from Karn finding extra cover to perfection. Just that the catch cannot stick in his palms tonight

6

to Karn Sharma, SIX, and he piles it on with a salt rub. Gets a ball in the slot at a good length and just swings his bat out. Tonking it down the ground

W

to Karn Sharma, out Bowled!! He is yet to give a run. But has a couple in the wickets column against his name. Karn looks to stay true to his pinch hitting role with a violent swish of the bat. But just doesn't bother moving his feet while looking to deal with this tight length delivery. Swings, gets the inside edge and watches his bails light up. A big time loss of shape. Karn Sharma b 11(10) [6s-1]

4

to Pollard, FOUR, here's the brute. A short one here that refuses to get up. A bare 123kph and Pollard spanks it with utter disdain. Pulls the leather off it to mid-wicket

OT

to Pollard, 1 run, oh a mix-up. Could have been a lot more. But for these missed aims. A polite knock to mid-wicket from Pollard and he just charges out to get away. Rohit meanwhile stands half way down the pitch hoping his partner would return. None of that happening though. And the Wankhede doesn't let sound travel, even across the pitch. Rohit has to thank a wayward throw

4

to Rohit, FOUR, a beastly slog. Opens and picks out the top-spinner half way down the track with a swivel to dispatch it just past the reach of a diving Rahane at mid-wicket. Takes his finger tips along as well

6

to Rohit, SIX, well if there is someone catching this it is in the crowds. That's into the railway line. Into one of the Virar locals perhaps. Another variation, in the form of a googly this time and picked out right off the palm as he slogs it while sweeping

4

to Rohit, FOUR, take that. You bowl length at your own peril. learns it the harsh way. A mighty swing of the bat and a punishing drill through the covers

6

Thakur to Rohit, SIX, Rohit and his front footed pulls. Ah, sublime. Thakur looks to pepper it with banging it half way down and watches it being deposited with a flat bat into the first floor over deep square leg

W

to Pollard, out Caught by Smith!! Another wicket to the break. And all Pollard needed to lose his concentration were the 150 seconds. Sees a toss up delivery and compulsively swings his bat looking to downtown with his lofted drives. Enough turn away to take the miscue. Meanwhile Smith sprints from long-off, and juggles before pouching. too is off on a celebratory run. Pollard c Smith b 9(9) [4s-1]

OT

to Rohit, 1 run, fifty #30. Gets there with a standing dab wide of point. All so nonchalant

4

to Hardik Pandya, FOUR, he doesn't believe in gentle nudges. Gets a back of a length sitter in the arc and flat bats it with all his might over extra cover

4

to Hardik Pandya, FOUR, ruins it further. Hangs back patiently on the back foot toying around with the bowler's mind in waiting for the short-slower combo to get to him. When he does, he heaves and posts it bisecting the two men converging at cow corner

W

to Hardik Pandya, out Caught by Stokes!! Oh Stokesy. If not with the bat, he changes the game with the ball. If not with the ball he does it with his diving arounds. Pandya slaps this fullish ball hard. And doesn't bother keeping it down as well. Only for Stokes to run across from the extra cover boundary and dive to pluck it inches off the turf. Is that the game? They've crossed over mind you. Hardik Pandya c Stokes b 13(11) [4s-2]

6

to Rohit, SIX, it only gets another twist. Spoke too soon. Converts a wide length ball into one in the arc with a run across his stumps. And then it is his swing that takes over. Hacks it across the line and despite the top-edge the big bats ensure it flies into the stands over mid-wicket

W

to Rohit, out Caught&Bowled!! Oh he's lost it. An argument with the umpire for the want of a wide has consumed his focus. Another walk across and he goes for an almighty slog swing. A top edge is all he manages with the ball flying high and mighty into the hands of the bowler itself. Did not even leave the pitch. And bangs his head down in the process of almost messing up the catch. Rohit c and b 58(39) [4s-6 6s-3]

W

to Harbhajan, out McClenaghan Run Out!! 1 run completed. All over. Gets low on his haunches and carves out the extravagant drive to extra cover. But the quest of wanting a non-existent second consumes another. A flat rocket arm throw from the deep, courtesy Stokes at the non-striker's end catches McClenaghan well short of his ground. McClenaghan run out (Stokes/) 0(0)

6

to Harbhajan, SIX, he finishes it with a swat. In style. But it is Pune who'll be celebrating. They've breached the fortress. A lovely strike on the ball with Harbhajan clearing his front leg and slogs it out of the park. Through his favourite area - mid-wicket

6

to Rahane, SIX, what a wonderful shot! Shows the nature of the track. An away-slanter from a good length, Rahane squats, reaches for it and slaps it over cover. Off the middle and the ball has enough wings to go all the way

4

to Tripathi, FOUR, almost a maximum. Dances down the track and elevates this shortish ball over point with a fierce cut. He played it uppishly and almost got the distance. One bounce and into the fence

OT

to Tripathi, 1 run, direct hit at the striker's end and Rahane is in. The TV umpire was called for assistance. Easy one for him. Short of a good length delivery wide of off, Tripathi taps it towards backward point and responds to a quick call from Rahane. Pollard finds the target, but Rahane was easily home

4

to Rahane, FOUR, good looking shot. pitches it up and Rahane meets it with a straight-batted drive. The bowler can't stop it and the mid-on fielder can't get there with a dive. Races away into the fence

4

to Rahane, FOUR, wow! Just a mere push and the ball dribbles away into the fence. comes round the wicket and darts it in full just outside off, Rahane prods forward and middles the straight drive/push. Gets it well wide of mid-off and the quick outfield does the rest

4

to Rahane, FOUR, nice shot! There wasn't room there for Rahane to free his arms. He goes deep in his crease and manufactures his own to cut it through covers. A teasing chase for the cover fielder. Escorts the ball till the fence

6

Sharma to Tripathi, SIX, that's a monster! Dhoni-esque. Flat, quick and overpitched, right in the slot for Tripathi to swing his bat. Clears his front leg and tonks it over long-on for a gigantic six

4

Sharma to Rahane, FOUR, nice shot to end the powerplay.Eleven runs off the over. Sharma slightly tosses it up, Rahane hangs back and flicks it wide of mid-on. Once it cleared the fielder, there was none to stop that

OT

to Tripathi, 3 runs, Tripathi uses the extra bounce outside off and late-cuts it wide of the keeper. Mitch McClenaghan, runs, slides and flicks the ball back into play. Saved a run for his team there. 50-run stand between the duo as well

4

to Tripathi, FOUR, drops it short and Tripathi stays in his crease and cuts it over backward point

4

to Tripathi, FOUR, shortens his length seeing Tripathi come down. He looks to cut and gets it off the toe end. The ball evades the keeper and runs away into the third man fence

4

to Rahane, FOUR, short of a good length delivery, Rahane nails the pull well in front of square on the leg-side. This is turning out to be an expensive over

W

Sharma to Rahane, out Caught&Bowled!! First wicket for Sharma in Mumbai colors. Rahane was undone by that top-spinner. He was looking to cut as he thought it was a leg-break. The extra bounce hits the top portion of the bat and lobs up in the air. The bowler calls for it and takes a straightforward catch. Rahane c and b Sharma 38(32) [4s-5 6s-1]

6

Sharma to Tripathi, SIX, good effort from the man in the deep, but he couldn't stop it from going into the fence. A 68-metre six. A leg-break, Tripathi gets down and slog sweeps. Doesn't quite get it off the middle of the bat. Nitish Rana at deep mid-wicket waits for it at the edge of the rope. But, the ball had just about enough elevation to go over him

4

Sharma to Smith, FOUR, Smith will use his feet against the spinners. Is quick to get out of the box and gets to the pitch of the flighted delivery, thumps it past the bowler. had no chance to even get a fingertip on that

W

Sharma to Tripathi, out Caught by Pollard!! Pollard under a high-ball, you expect only one result. A fine hand from Tripathi ends. Deserved a fifty. Smart bowling from , his second and making the most of the opportunity. He saw the batsman advance and threw it wide outside off, Tripathi had to reach out for the loft and he miscues it towards long-off. Tripathi c Pollard b Sharma 45(31) [4s-3 6s-2]

D

Sharma to Smith, 2 runs, dropped! Harbhajan spills a sitter. That would have been a huge moment in the game. Tossed up on off, Smith not completely down on his knee to sweep, hence the ball lobs towards deep square leg. Harbhajan runs across to his left and goes with both hands, but manages to grass it. He was on the move and that made it difficult for him to control the ball. is disappointed, he should have had his third

4

Sharma to Smith, FOUR, that's adding salt to the wound. drags the length back and Smith is all over it, uses the depth of the crease to hammer the pull past the diving mid-wicket fielder, no one in the deep to stop that

W

to Smith, out Bowled!! 200th T20 wicket. He dropped him last over and now has removed the dangerous Smith. Not much harm done. Look at go. He's letting all his frustration out. Shouting and roaring at the top of his voice. Slows it up and drops it short, Smith is early into the pull, the ball takes its time to beat the bat and hit the top of off-stump. Wicket off his final ball and ends with: 4-0-20-1. Smith b 17(12) [4s-2]

4

to Stokes, FOUR, gift first up for Stokes and he says thank you very much. Fired full and down leg, might have been the attempted yorker, Stokes helps it away fine and the pace of takes care of the rest

4

to Stokes, FOUR, streaky! Not where he intended but will take the final result. Steps out and aims for a nudge into the on-side, the inside edge nutmegs him and runs away to the fine leg fence

W

to Stokes, out Bowled!! Cleaned 'im up. It was right in the slot for Stokes and he misses it altogether. came round the wicket and pounded it on a length ball on leg-stump, Stokes clears his front leg and heaves, but failed to connect with the ball. Crashed into leg-stump and has his first wicket of the game. Big wicket at this stage. Stokes b 17(12) [4s-2]

4

to Manoj Tiwary, FOUR, in the air and just short of Hardik at mid-off. stays round the wicket, the cross-seamer outside off, Tiwary checks his drive and the ball lobs towards mid-off, dips in front of Hardik and runs away to the fence

4

to Manoj Tiwary, FOUR, back-to-back boundaries. Follows up the full delivery with a short one, Tiwary is on one leg to pull it away behind square leg. The man was inside the ring and there was no one stopping that

W

to Dhoni, out Bowled!! Dragged on. No heroics from Dhoni today. MUM are chipping away at the wickets. Five down and has his name on wicket's list. The umpire checks for a no-ball and has some part of his foot behind the stumps. Good length ball around off, Dhoni goes for the pull and the ball does not bounce as much as he anticipated, the inside edge crashes into the stumps. Dhoni b 7(11)

4

to Christian, FOUR, cracking shot! Brings up the 150. Half volley and not many batsmen miss out. Christian clears his front leg and pumps the drive through extra cover. No one at sweeper cover to stop it

4

to Manoj Tiwary, FOUR, dug in short and Tiwary fetched the pull from outside off, not off the meat but the key thing was he got it in the gap, between deep mid-wicket and long-on

4

to Manoj Tiwary, FOUR, misses the yorker and Tiwary thrashes it away. He gets underneath the ball and smashes it towards the cow corner fence, one bounce and into the fence. Good start to the over

W

to Manoj Tiwary, out Lbw!! The apprentice is doing the job for MUM. Second wicket for him and both have come in the death overs. The off-cutter and deceived Tiwary completely, he didn't pick it and shuffled across to nudge it to the on-side, missed and is struck in front of middle stump. HawkEye shows it to be clipping leg-stump. Manoj Tiwary lbw b 22(13) [4s-4]
