All|Overs 1-50
4

to Amla, FOUR, edged and four! Streaky way to get off the mark, but Amla won't mind. Seam-up delivery that shapes away a tad, Amla chases it with a slash and gets a fat outside edge. The ball flies between slip and short third man. First boundary of the innings

4

to Vohra, FOUR, shot! Uses the width outside off and bounce and elevates it over backward point to collect his first boundary

4

to Amla, FOUR, 13 off the over after bowling a brilliant first ball. Length ball down leg, Amla gets inside the line and flicks it well past the short fine leg fielder. Easy runs

6

to Vohra, SIX, that has been slapped! Short of a length delivery, Vohra dances down and wallops it over the bowler's head. Muscled it. Way past the boundary rope

W

to Vohra, out Caught by Manoj Tiwary!! First wicket down! sees the batsman charge down and bangs it short. Vohra is cramped for room, but still persists with his pull shot. Doesn't middle it and the ball balloons up on the leg-side. Tiwary, who had a good stint with the bat, runs to his left from deep mid-wicket and gobbles it up. Vohra c Manoj Tiwary b 14(9) [4s-1 6s-1]

4

to Saha, FOUR, nicely done! Shortish delivery outside off, Saha hops, gets on top of the bounce and forces it wide of point. The ball races away into the fence

6

to Amla, SIX, Amla is turning it on here now! He walks down and lifts this shortish ball over mid-off. The ball has enough wings to go into the stands

D

to Saha, 1 run, a very tough chance goes down! Saha prods forward and drills the cover drive. Dan Christian, at cover leaps to his right and gets a hand to it. Those are the ones that need to stick. Wasn't the case this time

4

to Saha, FOUR, Saha has come out with a positive intent and that is paying dividends. Finds the gap beautifully on his cover drive. No need to run for shots like that

4

to Saha, FOUR, four more! Safest shot to play is hit it down the ground. Sees the length on a fuller side and lofts it down the ground, left of the bowler and right of mid-on. Safe shot

W

to Saha, out Bowled!! strikes! And he is off! His customary celebratory run. He bamboozles Saha with a googly. It tweaked in at pace as well. Saha doesn't pick the wrong 'un and is also late to bring his bat down. The ball cannons onto the stumps. Through the gap between the bat and the pad. Saha b 14(9) [4s-3]

4

to Axar, FOUR, sloppy from Rajat Bhatia at short fine! He was put off by the appeal for lbw from the keeper and . It was the slider which was very full. Axar just about brings his bat down and gets a bit of wood on it. Bhatia over-runs to his left and allows the ball to go past him

6

Chahar to Axar, SIX, goes for the big whammy and succeeds. That was short and has been flat batted over long-on for a huge maximum. Pressure on the youngster

W

Chahar to Amla, out Caught by Stokes!! The young man gets the big fish! A luring delivery tossed up outside off and the batsman looking to thwack it down the ground, finds the able hands of Stokes at long-off. That brings the game back in the balance. Amla was struggling to get the runs and pays the penalty trying to up the ante. Amla c Stokes b Chahar 28(27) [4s-2 6s-1]

W

to Axar, out Caught&Bowled!! Looks to go for the slog sweep, the googly undoes him and he manages a big fat top-edge. The high ball comes down for the bowler to pouch that. The trademark celebration from follows. That was a disastrous strike for PUN as they had lost Amla a couple of balls earlier. The promotion didn't really yield the desired results. Axar c and b 24(22) [4s-1 6s-1]

6

Chahar to Maxwell, SIX, MAAMMAAAMUMAAAHH! The Big Show has arrived. The showman lays the bat on that and crunches that over the man at long-on. That scaled many a light years before coming down

4

Bhatia to Maxwell, FOU, backs away and then the sledge hamme does the est. Just like a waio, wields his weapon to axe the ball past the man at cove

6

Bhatia to Mille, SIX, slowe ball, doesn't matte. That was a dead meat of a delivey and the batsman has picked the bones out of that. It's that time of the season folks - In the ac, it's out of the pak. If it's in the V, it's into the tees. emembe the canage fom 2013 against BL?

4

to Maxwell, FOUR, PHHUUUUFFFFF! Such power. He bulldozes that one through the off-side and the man at cover had no chance as there was a lot of room on it

6

to Maxwell, SIX, backs away by clearing his legs and then sees the ball like a football to have a clear swing at it. The ball soars over the long-off region for a maximum. Maxwell is taking it away

6

to Maxwell, SIX, 50 for the combo! That was a short ball, never got enough wood on it but enough on it to send it packing just over the man at mid-wicket. There were shouts of catch it but that region was unmanned

6

to Maxwell, SIX, the most powerful delivery boy is here. He has sent it packing over the cow corner region. Brutal sinews into that pull and the ball flies away into oblivion

6

to Miller, SIX, has that gone all the way? An overpitched delivery and the batsman checked his drive with power on his bottom hand to hit it flat and just past the diving Christian at long-on. The ball landed on the cushion and the third umpire signalled it as a half-a-dozen

4

to Miller, FOUR, short ball and the swivelled pull. Picks up the length quickly and pivots on his back foot to send it speeding towards the backward square region for a four

W

Sharma to Mayank Agarwal, out Bowled!! Cleaned him up!! That was the ferocious inswinger and the batsman without covering the line of the ball looks to play across the line and misses. The sticks go cartwheeling and the bowler takes off with a hand in the air. He does it so often, does Sharma. Superb bit of attacking bowling as he got the ball to land on the sticks and put the batsman on a tight leash. Mayank Agarwal b Sharma 0(4)

D

Sharma to Rahane, 1 run, DROPPED!! The man at cover - Vohra had enough time to settle down under it by going back but he makes a meal of it. That was a nothing shot to a length ball and the ball scooped high up in the air and never scaled any distance. Vohra was put off by Natarajan at mid-off who was just beside him. The former could see the fast bowler from the corner of his eye and that was enough

6

Sharma to Rahane, SIX, OLLLLAALLLAAAA! That was some response from Rahane to a short ball. He loved the aroma on the perfume ball and accepted it with glee. That drop might well be costly

4

Sharma to Rahane, FOUR, opens the face of the blade on impact and runs it down to third man for a four. Cheeky from Rahane as used the pace of the bowler and knew his angles to perfection

4

Sharma to Smith, FOUR, gets the room to free his arms and creams the ball away into the covers. No one moved as the ball sped away into the off-side

4

Sharma to Smith, FOUR, creates room by going leg-sidish, got the room to expand his arms and then threads the ball away between cover and extra cover for back-to-back fours. Innovation and Smith go hand in hand

W

Naarajan o Rahane, ou Caugh by Soinis!! here you go! he young man srikes. Whaa momen for him. A lengh delivery slaning away, Rahane looks o drive on he up, his i uppishly and finds he safe hands of Soinis in he sweeper region on he off-side. he fielder was looking ino he sun, so he seadied himself, go a hand up o creae a beer vision and hen gobbled i up. Rahane c Soinis b Naarajan 19(15) [4s-1 6s-1]

4

Naarajan o Smih, FOUR, sho of he day? Sho of he ourney so far? Pardon he exaggeraion bu ha was serene from he skipper. ha was a slower delivery and he basman jus lean his weigh forward on i wih a sraigh face of he ba ouching he ball. he man a mid-on and a long-off dived over he ball o allow a deserving four o he skipper

W

to Smith, out Caught by Vohra!! HUGEEEEE WICKKKETTTT for PUN. That was a leading edge as the ball held onto the surface for the batsman to not control the whippy pull. The man in the deep - Vohra, this time settles down and takes a smart catch at the edge of the boundary. It almost carried all the way. Pune in trouble now. Smith c Vohra b 26(27) [4s-3]

6

Singh to Stokes, SIX, good end to the over. A massive end actually. In the arc of the southpaw and the batsman comes up with an explosive response to tonk the ball over the cow corner region

4

to Stokes, FOUR, imparts his powers of guiding the edge where he wants. Is happy to stay away from the line, giving his long levers some breathing space and just slashes at a slanter. An obvious outside edge and an even more obvious empty cordon for some free runs here

W

Singh to Dhoni, out Caught&Bowled!! A tame dismissal. Quite typical of Dhoni's defences in the early part of his innings. One of those famed stabby defences, just that he cannot keep this one down. But decides to help him to an extent, getting his palms and almost grassing it. A three-time juggle before he earns himself a story for a lifetime. The replays show it to be much slower, yeah Dhoni was made to check his defence causing the ball-lob. Dhoni c and b Singh 5(11)

4

Naarajan o Manoj iwary, FOUR, pure iming. And grace. Wih a sink down on a knee, iwary decides o free his arms a a wide overpiched delivery ouside off in he form of a slice. Such is he mea on his ha he doesn' even boher keeping i down. Almos all he way

4

to Stokes, FOUR, gets a long hop. A rank one. And all he has to do is decide where to deposit this one. Decides mid-wicket it is again to take the brunt. Ensures that he doesn't get up early and once again puts his spinning back foot to use in whisking it into the fence

6

to Stokes, SIX, and now he lets the off-side take the brunt. Patel in his response fires one out flat and wide. The mind-reader that Stokes is, sinks and tonks it through the line

6

Naarajan o Manoj iwary, SIX, he wide yorkers. Prove o be he undoing of Naarajan here. Makes iwary reach ou making him srech every cell of his body in geing here. Boy o boy he does. And how. Slices i imparing all he momenum in lofing i over backward poin. hese iny boundaries I ell you

6

to Stokes, SIX, he's smoking them in. With a gallop down, gets the ball sitting up in his arc and keeps swinging his bat. We are firmly into the baseball zone. Over cow corner

4

to Manoj Tiwary, FOUR, they're turning it on. Tiwary joins the act now. Is mighty helped by a horror line always drifting down leg. Has to ensure that he gets some wood on it and he does it with aplomb. Gets enough to muscle it heave behind square and beat the lone man perched out there

OT

Sharma to Stokes, 1 run, clears his front leg and shovels it down the ground. The yorkers keeping him quiet(er). Nevertheless, the half-ton comes up

W

to Stokes, out Caught&Bowled!! A smash back. And the perish. Patel smartly keeps denying Stokes the opportunity to go through the on-side by firing it wide outside off. Gets the bat up flat on the slap down the ground. Too early once again and all he manages is the cue end that flies back to the upward palms of Patel. So the change in bats not quite what the side wanted at this point. Stokes c and b 50(32) [4s-2 6s-3]

6

Sharma to Manoj Tiwary, SIX, in the arc, and out of the park. You cannot expect the bowler getting away bowling length at this stage. And Tiwary keeps up with the tradition of dishing out the punishments. Sits up and swings it through the line in tonking it over long-on

4

Sharma to Manoj Tiwary, FOUR, a real drag down. The slower back hander but half way down the ground. All the time for the adjustment and Tiwary does it in executing his crouched pull. Axar did get a hand in his stretch at the fence, the power imparted was enough to burst through a wall though

4

Sharma to Christian, FOUR, oh dear. Spots Christian running inside and fires one way down leg. Christian with his stalking eyes always on the ball gets his bat out on the horizontal swiping mode and scoops it away

4

Sharma to Christian, FOUR, more of the same. The ploy here from refuses to change and Christian too refuses to stand up on his feet against this length. Does all he can to get under the ball and keeps his bat on the scoop. This time right over the keeper

6

Sharma to Christian, SIX, a switch to over the wicket makes no difference. Pounds it short, pounds it wide and Christian unleashes the mighty forehand smash. The concrete on the stands taking a real beating here

W

Sharma to Christian, out Caught by Maxwell!! Shovels it to his doom. Only after having done his job to perfection. gets the yorker right and Christian gets his bat down off a massive backlift in shovelling it out. Not quite the elevation this time with the ball flying down to long-on. Christian c Maxwell b Sharma 17(8) [4s-2 6s-1]
