4

to Mayank Agarwal, FOUR, edged and four, streaky but Mayank will take those. There wasn't a first slip, Buttler dived to his left from second, but can't get to the ball. On a good length and holding its line outside off, Agarwal just hung his bat at that, the edge bisected the keeper and second slip to perfection

4

Pandya to Rahane, FOUR, he's peirced the gap to perfection, just a tiny gap between the fielder at point and cover-point and Rahane found it. Played with an open face, allowed the ball to come onto him and gets it in the gap past point

4

Pandya to Rahane, FOUR, edged and four, on a good length and in that channel outside off, drew Rahane into the drive, he went with hard hands and gets a thick edge past the lone slip, rolls away to the fence in a hurry

4

Pandya to Rahane, FOUR, lovely shot, on a good length and well outside off, Rahane gets a big stride forward and lifts it over the head of the man at mid-off, couple of bounces and over the ropes

6

to Rahane, SIX, Rahane is looking in good touch, this was banged in short and on the stumps, Rahane swivels across, doesn't bother to keep it down. He didn't look in complete control - but has enough to send it sailing over the head of the man at long leg

4

to Rahane, FOUR, cracking shot, on a good length and just outside off, Rahane leans forward on the drive, seemed to have checked his shot at the lst moment. It went in the air and past , beat mid-off's sprawling dive to his right and rolls away to the fence

W

to Mayank Agarwal, out Caught by Rohit!! Soft dimissal for Mayank. A daft little shot - to be precise. This was a back of a length delivery outside off, the width was there to cut, instead, he attempted something of a forehand jab, doesn't keep it down and hits it straight into the hands of Rohit at mid-off. Not the start Mayank wanted in his new franchise. Mayank Agarwal c Rohit b 6(5) [4s-1]

4

to Smith, FOUR, clubbed, made a great noise as the bat connected with the ball. Length delivery outside off, Smith shuffles across and heaves it over wide mid-wicket, one bounce and over the ropes

6

to Rahane, SIX, that's easy pickings for Rahane, width on offer from . He stays in his crease, uses his hands to good effect, makes the most of 's pace and helps it high and over third man for a maximum

4

to Rahane, FOUR, lovely, this is exquisite cricket from Rahane, back of a length and well outside off, he waits on it, opens the face of the bat and steers it to the left of wide slip, beats the man getting across from the deep

4

Pandya to Smith, FOUR, cracking shot, short and wide from , Smith doesn't need a second invitation, hangs back and cuts it square on the off-side, beats the fielder in the deep with ease

4

Pandya to Rahane, FOUR, fifty for Rahane. This was banged in short by , Rahane took his eyes off the ball, still went through with the pull, almost went all the way, bounced just in front of the ropes. looks amused, that ball didn't deserve a boundary

6

Pandya to Rahane, SIX, stunning bit of timing from Rahane and he gets just enough to beat Pollard's leap at long-on. At first instance, it looked like a simple dolly to long-on, the ball kept going and going. Pollard arched back one-handed, got a finger-tip, but the ball was always beating him

W

to Rahane, out Caught by Nitish Rana!! A slight misjudgement from Rana in the deep but he's recovered really well here. The umpires want to have a second look. But I think the catch was clean enough. Soft signal is out, and we will stay with out. A back of a length delivery, Rahane slogs it across the line and hits it flat and straight towards deep square leg. Rana is slightly guilty of sleeping on it. He doesn't really move from his position, expecting it to carry comfortably, and has to dive forward in the end. Snatches it right off the turf. has struck first ball of a new spell. MUM needed that. Rahane c Nitish Rana b 60(34) [4s-6 6s-3]

4

to Stokes, FOUR, heaves the pull away over mid-wicket. He was quickly in position for that. Short of length from and the ball just sits up. Stokes drags it from outside off with a lot of muscle

4

to Smith, FOUR, plants his back foot at least a couple of feet outside off, rocks back, and mows the pull through square leg. The footwork had Smith written all over it

4

to Smith, FOUR, that will run away. strays in line and bowls it on leg-stump. Smith simply had to glance it away past the fielder at short fine leg. Neat wrists

D

to Smith, 1 run, dropped! It's Nitish Rana in the deep. The ball flew towards his left and he was on the move but he got there with both hands. Exquisite timing on the short-arm pull from Smith. It's precisely that which gets him in trouble. Rana provides the reprieve. The ball actually hit him flush on the shoulders. That's quite an error. Huge moment

4

to Smith, FOUR, oh poor ball. A short of length delivery which sits up around the waist and Smith drags it away past short fine leg. Big decision to get in here

6

to Smith, SIX, it's not working. Smith is just too good for . His slower balls do work sometimes but this is just different class. Smith picks it up, waits on it and swipes it over deep mid-wicket

4

to Stokes, FOUR, he's absolutely crashed this through extra-cover. A full, wide ball with mid-off up. Not sure what the thinking is. Whatever it is, the execution of it is way off target. Misses the yorker by a long way and Stokes pummels the drive

OT

to Smith, 2 runs, fifty for Smith. This guy, huh, unbelievable. He comes off a 499-run series in Tests and now belts a half-century in his first T20 League X innings. Clips a short of length off-cutter from outside off and rushes back for two

4

Pandya to Stokes, FOUR, rare error in the field from Pollard. It would actually be harsh in calling that an error for most fielders, but this is Pollard we're talking about. A mistimed slog from Stokes. However, he still places it to the left of long-on where Pollard sprints and dives across trying to flick the ball in, but fails to get a hand

W

Pandya to Stokes, out Caught by Southee!! Another miscue, this time it goes straight to hand. Was it an off-cutter from Pandya? Might have been. It was there on a length though but Stokes doesn't get hold of it and holes out at deep mid-wicket. The crowd erupts with "Dhoni, Dhoni" chants. Stokes c Southee b Pandya 21(14) [4s-3]

4

to Smith, FOUR, how good is he! Susses out the plan from based on the line he's been bowling in this over so far, waits on the ball and just slices it past short third man

4

to Smith, FOUR, that's been dragged all the way to the wide long-on fence. Pure despair for . He's bowled this so wide of off and to see the ball being swatted into the on-side is downright demoralizing

4

to Dhoni, FOUR, there we go. Dhoni isn't to be denied for too long. A bit shorter than the previous couple of deliveries, and Dhoni pulls it away to the fine leg boundary. One bounce and over

D

to Dhoni, 1 run, dropped! An absolute sitter put down by Southee. Oh boy. They've already dropped Smith earlier. That hasn't quite gone well. Now another one. Dhoni miscues the full toss to deep mid-wicket where Southee doesn't have to move. Dear me

6

to Smith, SIX, going, going, gone... Is there anything he can't do? It's a slower ball from , Smith swipes across the line and muscles it over wide long-on

6

to Smith, SIX, he's done it. A couple of sixes to finish the game off just when it was getting away from them. What a player! A full ball on leg stump, Smith whips it away with unbelievable timing over the deep mid-wicket boundary. Pune clinch the game with a ball to spare

4

to Parthiv Patel, FOUR, thank you says Parthiv Patel as he clips a leg-side dross fine to claim his first boundary

4

to Buttler, FOUR, length ball outside off and Buttler is away. Swats it across the line and gets it wide of mid-on

4

to Buttler, FOUR, shuffles across and flicks a ball from middle stump, easily done. With fine leg inside the ring that was always asking for trouble, Buttler obliged

4

to Parthiv Patel, FOUR, sat up on a perfect length to be smashed, Parthiv Patel rocks back and nails the pull over mid-wicket. Take four!

4

to Parthiv Patel, FOUR, this pitch is a belter, 180 is a must. Half-volley outside off, Parthiv Patel stands tall and slams it straight of mid-off who dives in vain

D

to Parthiv Patel, 1 run, dropped by Bhatia. A straightforward chance. Parthiv Patel doesn't get control of the cut and he slices it straight to third man, Bhatia didn't even need to move an inch. It was going arrow straight towards his chest. Straight in and straight out. Oops!

6

to Buttler, SIX, for the first time this over, he pitches it up and Buttler goes bam! Gets underneath it and launches it for a maximum over long-on

6

to Buttler, SIX, turns back and smiles. That's all he could do. Ridiculous T20 batting on display. Buttler shuffles and scoops a pacy length ball over the keeper's head, lands just over the advertising triangles. Back to back sixes for Buttler

4

to Parthiv Patel, FOUR, floated full on leg-stump, Parthiv Patel sits up and brooms it away with sheer disdain, rocketed away behind square

W

to Parthiv Patel, out Bowled!! Knocked him over. is off with his marathon sprint. The crowd go bonkers. It was a slider, just skids on and slaps Parthiv Patel's leg peg as he fails to connect with the slog sweep. Got too greedy and paid the price. Parthiv Patel b 19(14) [4s-4]

4

to Buttler, FOUR, gives himself a lot of room as he skates down the pitch, pierces the gap between extra cover and mid-off to perfection. Fast hands, full flow of the willow. Jos-outrageously-talented-Buttler

6

to Buttler, SIX, that's gone flying into the stands. Greyhounds out of his crease, picks the bones out of it, a Tennis-esque flat-batted smite over wide long-off

W

to Rohit, out Bowled!! And again, Imran is on fire. He's just unstoppable at the moment. A canny skidder this, just keeps going with the angle and clatters Rohit's stumps. He may have got a bit of inside edge there. He wasn't fully forward, neither backward. Poor feet movement. Rohit b 3(7)

W

to Buttler, out Lbw!! Inside-edge onto pad, but doesn't matter, the umpire has his finger up. No turn, just goes flat and on the stumps, Buttler is stuck inside the crease, tries to block off the front foot and ekes a big edge onto his pad. In real time though it appeared as if it had gone straight towards his pad. Wasn't to be. Big moment in the game? Buttler lbw b 38(19) [4s-3 6s-3]

OT

to Rayudu, 1 run, direct hit and Rayudu was gone! Smith was the fielder, curses himself after he missed the target. A casual knock down the wicket from Rayudu, goes straight to mid-off, Smithy had ample time to target all three at the non-striker's end. A big miss

6

to Nitish Rana, SIX, half-tracker and gone! Lovely swivel-pull from Nitish Rana, lands over the mid-wicket fence, brute power!

4

to Nitish Rana, FOUR, not getting the googly right. Again down leg and this time Rana gets a bit of bat/glove on that. The ball races away fine beating the short fine fielder

W

Bhatia to ayudu, out Caught&Bowled!! Thank You! A typical Bhatia wicket. Foxes the batsman with a 116kph delivey and ayudu is found checking his dive, spoons a staightfowad chance and Bhatia accepts the dolly. Once again the Delhi man showing his vaiety and the key to his success has been the length. It was on a good length and ayudu thought it was thee fo the dive. Not to be. ayudu c and b Bhatia 10(12)

6

to Nitish Rana, SIX, would be proud of that shot. Banged in halfway down and the line was around off, Rana is quick to transfer his weight onto the back foot and nails the pull over deep square leg. Third six that has conceded

W

Bhatia to Kunal Pandya, out Caught by Dhoni!! Fist Tahi and now Bhatia. The slow bowles ae doing it fo PUNE. Bhatia lets out a oa as soon as MS completes the catch. He's been exceptional with his vaiations. This offie was bowled at 96kph, Pandya just didn't have the pace to slog it acoss the line, the top-edge skies up and Dhoni calls fo it. Takes it in his own unique way, one leg up in the ai. Kunal Pandya c Dhoni b Bhatia 3(5)

4

to Pollard, FOUR, Pollard welcomes him with a thumping drive. Bit of air and Pollard plants his front foot forward, smashed it straight back over the bowler's head. Didn't bother to run, he knew he had middled it

4

to Pollard, FOUR, Pollard goes downtown once more and gets the desired result. goes fuller with the tossed up delivery and Pollard drills it straight back at , who is slow to get down and stop it

W

to Nitish Rana, out Caught by R Bhatia!! Bhatia has made amends. Put a sitter down early in the innings, this time keeps his eyes on the ball and ends Rana's knock. It was the googly which was drifting away from the southpaw, Rana went down and slog swept it flat, Bhatia didn't have to move at deep mid-wicket to pouch that. Nitish Rana c R Bhatia b 34(28) [4s-1 6s-2]

6

to Pollard, SIX, shouted "catch it" and there was no way anyone could have caught that. The South African goes a tad fuller in his length and that enables Pollard to get underneath it, slams it flat and over long-off for a maximum

D

to Pollard, no run, was that a drop? Need another look. Wide yorker outside off, Pollard bends down to squeeze it out, the ball takes the under-edge and goes low to Dhoni's right. The former skipper goes with one hand and spills it. Tough one for Dhoni and 's unlucky day continues, second drop off his bowling

4

to Pollard, FOUR, unlucky and have been synonyms today. Full and outside off, Pollard throws everything he's got at that and the outside edge flies away fine and just stands there in his teapot position

W

to Pollard, out Caught by Mayank Agarwal!! gets the better of the West Indian. But credit has to go to Mayank Agarwal, he's pulled off a stunner. Length delivery and Pollard miscued his loft, came more off the base of the bat. It was dropping in front of long-on before Mayank dived full length and grasped it inches from the ground. He didn't allow it to pop out even as he hit the ground. Pollard c Mayank Agarwal b 27(17) [4s-3 6s-1]

6

to Southee, SIX, Southee nails this. He should have tried this shot on the previous ball. Once again gets his front leg out of the way to give him a free swing, makes his job easier by bowling a length delivery, tonked straight back over for a maximum

6

to Hardik Pandya, SIX, consecutive sixes for MUM. missed his yorker by a few inches and is launched into the crowd. Low full toss outside off, Pandya keeps a firm base and carves it over point. Went a long way back into the stands

6

to Hardik Pandya, SIX, attains normal services. Three sixes in a row. Pandya getting into the thick of things. Length delivery and Pandya dismisses it over long-off. Just stood there and dispatched it with disdain

6

to Hardik Pandya, SIX, make it four in a row. and death overs are not the best of mates. He goes full and misses the yorker by a couple of inches, Pandya had enough to get under that and smack it over long-on

4

to Hardik Pandya, FOUR, four more. Already 22 off the over. A game-changing over this. Fifty up for . Full and wide outside off, Pandya throws the kitchen sink at that and the outside edge flies wide of Dhoni

6

to Hardik Pandya, SIX, Smith has a worried look as Pandya sends another one crashing over the rope. Switched to back of a length and the result remained the same, Pandya went back and nailed it over wide long-on. Pinged the ad hoarding on the full

W

to Hardik Pandya, wide, out Southee Run Out!! Where was Southee going? He might have thought that it was the last ball of the innings, but Pandya was sure that it was a wide and there would be an extra delivery. fires it outside off, Pandya can't reach it and Southee was at the other end by the time Pandya could react. Dhoni lobbed it to , who took care of the rest. The third umpire checks if the batsmen had crossed, Pandya got his back foot in before Southee could reach the crease. It's touch and go, but Pandya will cling on to the strike. Southee run out (Dhoni/) 7(3) [6s-1]
