All|Overs 1-50
4

to Amla, FOUR, Amla is off and running. loses his radar and sprays it on the pads, Amla will not miss out on those. Just nonchalantly whips it past square leg. The ball raced away to the fence at MACH 3

4

Abdulla to Amla, FOUR, fabulous shot from Amla. Don't offer hm wdth, not even half a foot. f you gve hm half a foot, he wll take t nto a mle. Just extends hs hands and lfts t effortlessly over extra cover

6

to Vohra, SIX, you will see those often especially when is bowling at such pace. Vohra is not afraid, goes for a pull off the front foot, gets a fat top-edge that flies over the third man fence. Blades these days! I tell you..

4

to Vohra, FOUR, in the airrr and just over a leaping Negi. Vohra would've had his heart in his mouth for a moment. A short of length delivery outside off, there was width on offer so Vohra went after for a rasping cut. Didn't bother to keep it down but luckily for him it flies over the point fielder

4

to Vohra, FOUR, almost.. overcorrects his length, bowls fuller this time. Vohra flexes his arms and lifts it over mid-off. Just clears the fielders and runs away to the fence

4

to Vohra, FOUR, third boundary of the over. is not learning. This was much straighter, he is looking for some swing which is non existent at the moment. Full on the pads, Vohra gets inside the line and tickles it away to the fine leg fence. The fielder was inside the ring and shouldn't have bowled it there

4

to Amla, FOUR, threads the gap this time. Pure class from Amla. Stands still and lets his hands do the talking. Punches a back of a length delivery crisply through cover-point, beats the packed off-side field

OT

to Vohra, 1 run, goes wide of the crease and angles one on the pads, clipped away sweetly to deep square leg. 50-up for Punjab

6

Mills to Amla, SIX, in the airrrr and dropped. Mills is furious. Stanlake is the culprit. Don't even look at the bowler. A short ball down leg, Amla swivels across and pulls, hits it straight to fine leg. Stanlake prances to his right, goes reverse-cupped but makes a royal mess of it. The ball bursts through his fingers and what's worse is, it carries over the fence

4

Mills to Vohra, FOUR, wow. Elegance written all over it. Shot of the day so far. Mills bowls a half-volley on the stumps, Vohra leans forward, presents a full bat face and drives it smoothly down the ground, beats mid-on

W

Mills to Vohra, out Lbw!! Number one down. A premature end to Vohra's innings. Mills is chuffed to bits, lets out a huge roar. It was full and straight, the back of the hand slower ball from Mills. Vohra misjudged it completely. Shuffled across his sticks and plays down the wrong line. Misses it and is struck low on the pad. Looked pretty adjacent and umpire Anil Chaudhary raises his dreaded finger. Vohra lbw b Mills 34(21) [4s-4 6s-1]

6

Abdulla to Axar, SX, ths one goes horrbly wrong for Abdulla. Tres the chnaman, but drops t on a shortsh length, Patel spots t. He pvots back and muscles the pull nto the deep md-wcket stands

W

to Axar, out Bowled!! strikes. The experiment of sending Patel up the order fails. It was the googly from , wasn't quite short. Patel went for the encore, not the ideal length. He misses and the ball rattles the stumps. exults! Axar b 9(6) [6s-1]

6

to Amla, SIX, in the slot and out of the park. Pitched up just outside off, Amla was waiting for it, plonks his front foot forward and lifts it over long-off

4

Mills to Maxwell, FOUR, you cannot keep Maxwell quiet for long. He gets into business, full at 146kph, Maxwell clears his front leg and bludgeons it back over the bowler's head. Brutal from Maxi!

6

Mills to Maxwell, SIX, wow! What a strike. Full and outside off, Maxwell engineers room and slices it with an open bat over extra cover. Such is the power that it carries all the way

6

to Amla, SIX, that has gone flying into the third tier. Just slid on with the arm, Amla picked the bones out of it, thumping it high and handsome into the long-on stands

D

to Maxwell, 1 run, dropped by backward point, a real sitter, BLR fans can't believe it! Full and wide, Maxi slices the drive sitting deep inside his crease, it went flat and straight to Mandeep Singh. He was a tad slow to react, straight in and straight out

4

to Amla, FOUR, it's down the leg side and Amla tickles it away for four! The man at fine leg had no chance. A fine fifty from the South African. This knock has ensured that PUN are chasing this down without much of a problem

4

to Maxwell, FOUR, plenty of width on offer and Maxwell takes full toll of it, stands tall in his crease and smacks the leather over extra cover. Take four!

4

to Maxwell, FOUR, that's fodder! Maxi wants to finish it off ASAP. Uses the strong bottom hand to whip it in the air over mid-wicket, one bounce and over the ropes

6

to Maxwell, SIX, this could be over pretty soon. Maxwell is surely relishing captaincy, Australia are you watching? Clears his front leg and smites the heck off a short delivery, backs away and makes a clean connection, goes seething over a helpless third man

6

to Maxwell, SIX, brute! That's massacred! Maxi is in some form. Watches the ball like a hoop, once he picked the length (short) it was all about connection; that was marmalized, flat and flying over backward point

6

to Maxwell, SIX, #PUN make a mockery of BLR's 148, ABD's 46-ball 89, win by 8 wickets with 33 balls to spare. Maxi is blasting it all around the park, puts the finishing touches with a brutalizing maximum over long-off. Got underneath a flat delivery and killed it...Watto smiles as he shakes hands with his dear friend. Lo! That's all he can do at the moment

W

to Watson, out Bowled!! And that's a beautiful delivery to get rid of Watson. He beat him in the air. Lovely change of pace from . The previous ball came at 100kph, this was nicely floated up, Watson was early into the cut, didn't turn much, anyway was too close to cut and he chops it back onto the sticks off an inside edge. So the ploy to open with works wonders. Disappointment for the BLR skipper. Watson b 1(4)

4

Sharma to de Villiers, FOUR, that was a poor piece of fielding from the man at third man. So de Villiers is off the mark straightaway in this T20 League. Sharma bowled a decent length ball outside off stump, just shaped away from the right-hander, de Villiers guided that with an angled bat past point and eventually managed to get a boundary

4

Sharma to Vishnu Vinod, FOUR, in the airrrrrr and just over the leaping Maxwell at mid-on. Vinod is known for his audacious stroke-play. He won't mind playing his shots in any situation. Shortish delivery from Sharma, Vinod smacks that from the crease, didn't get hold of it, more a sort of a pull shot it was, the ball just evaded the Punjab skipper

6

Sharma to de Villiers, SIX, oh my! That's a de Villiers special. How did he manage to time it so well? Looked like he was initially cramped for room, just moved his legs to the leg-side for a wee bit, somehow managed to get under that ball and loft it inside-out over wide long-off. Right then, he's moved on to 10 off 5. Good start you would say

OT

Sharma to Vishnu Vinod, no run, yes-no and the last thing BLR want is for Vinod to run AB out. Thankfully no damage done. He defends this back of a length delivery towards cover-point and blindly sets off, AB rightly sends him back and Stoinis' throw wasn't accurate at the striker's end

W

Sharma to Vishnu Vinod, out Caught by Maxwell!! Good captaincy from Maxi. Vishnu Vinod hit a boundary that went aerial over mid-on in the previous over. Now he's placed himself in the deep and swallowed an easy catch. Disastrous start for BLR after opting to bat. Credit to Sharma as well for dropping it short and cramping the batsman for room on seeing the batsman advance, Vinod wasn't in the best of positions to play, yet he went through with the hoick, totally mistimed it in the end. Vishnu Vinod c Maxwell b Sharma 7(12) [4s-1]

W

to Kedar Jadhav, out Lbw!! "Aaaaah, aaaaah," goes and the finger goes up. "Definitely going over," says Pup on air, but quickly corrects himself to add, "maybe umpire's call." Body blow for BLR. Kedar was their hero in Bengaluru, he's out for a 4-ball 1 in Indore. Was that going over the top? Should the benefit of doubt been given to Kedar? This was the nip-backer from , Kedar was on the hop, impact was just around the off stump and hawk-eye shows the ball missing the stumps. Another poor call from the umpire. We've had a few thus far in the series. Ask Mumbai! Kedar Jadhav lbw b 1(4)

4

to de Villiers, FOUR, missed the yorker by a yard or so and that was just what de Villiers wanted with the line being middle and leg. He waited for the ball to come and flicked it past the diving mid-wicket fielder

OT

Sharma to Mandeep, no run, another yes-no and Mandeep escapes. A direct-hit would have seen him walk back. He wanted to drive this short of length delivery through cover, got an inside edge to Amla at mid-wicket, AB shouts and sends him back, the throw was wide of the stumps

6

Naarajan o Mandeep, SIX, now hen, now hen! ha's hi he roof of he sadium over he square leg sand. Wha a sho! How efforless was ha? his shor ball didn' rise much, Mandeep sood all, swivelled and muscled he pull sho all he way

4

Naarajan o Mandeep, FOUR, and he ges lucky wih an ouside edge ha runs away for four! No one a slip and hird man can' cu ha off. Naarajan bowled full and ouside off sump, Mandeep reached ou o mee he ball, he ball escaped off he edge

W

to Mandeep, out Caught by Saha!! Can a wicket keeper take a wicket? He sure can. Catches like those should be awarded to the keeper. Short delivery, got big on the batsman, he went for the pull and managed a big plump edge. The ball skied upwards and stayed there till eternity till Saha circled under it after running back and then despite misjudging it, threw himself in the air to take it out of thin air. Superb take from the mitts-man. Mandeep c Saha b 28(34) [4s-1 6s-1]

6

to de Villiers, SIX, MAAMMAAMUMAAAHHH! That has sailed over the long-off region. Out of nowhere, Mr. 360 decides to pepper the area down the ground and he got the length to smack it down the ground. Length to ABD is blasphemous

6

to de Villiers, SIX, good length is synonymous to death in the death overs. Length ball and the batsman hacked the pull shot away to send it packing into the cow corner region. That was out of the top draw from the comeback man!

6

to de Villiers, SIX, Mr. 360 is back with a bang! Short delivery, it was a dead meat of a delivery for the batsman who was on the back foot, he picked the bones out of that. Pivots on the back foot and then hammers the pull on the on-side for a maximum and with that his fifty.

6

Sharma to Binny, SIX, length ball and it disappears. That has been hoicked away into the on-side and that has landed many-a-miles into the deep mid region. He picked it up like he was picking roses in a garden

4

Sharma to Binny, FOUR, goes inside-out and cannons the ball over cover for a boundary. That was a full ball outside off and the batsman thwacks the ball over the fielder to get another boundary. Even Binny joins in the act

6

Sharma to de Villiers, SIX, cheers says ABD as he accepts the freebie from the bowler. That was a friendly full toss on the sticks and the batsman went across the line to smack the blow flat between long-on and mid-wicket for a maximum

4

Sharma to de Villiers, FOUR, FIFTY for the combo! This man can do anything and everything with the willow. The pied piper of BLR treated the bowler as if he hails from Hamelin. That was full outside off and the batsman just steered the ball over the man at point

6

Sharma to de Villiers, SIX, PHHUUUUUU!! 97 metres hit after he sank down on his knee to clobber the ball away towards the deep mid-wicket region. That was a low full toss and the batsman got under it to send it into oblivion

6

Sharma to de Villiers, SIX, full toss, you don't want to know what happened to the bowler. That again forced the batsman to crouch low and trample the ball away into the on-side. That ball almost scaled the moon before it came down

6

Sharma to de Villiers, SIX, his body lost balance. He was done in by the length, which was full, done in by the lack of pace but he reached out for it. He still managed to drag the ball away over long-off and a six it is

6

Sharma to de Villiers, SIX, on the sticks, he goes down onto his knees and then the biggest of the night is unleashed as the ball scales some other orbit and disappears out of the stadium. Sensational hitting from ABD and BLR have something to fight with
