4

to Mayank Agarwal, FOUR, first boundary of the innings. Sweetly timed by Agarwal. Saw the ball dropped on a shortish length, pivoted back and flayed it through cover. This is a mickey-mouse outfield and it zooms away to the fence

W

to Rahane, out Caught by Samson!! Zak attack strikes! Glum faces in the crowd. Rahane falls early in the innings, big wicket for DEL. It was on a fuller length around off, it was the off-cutter from Zak. Rahane perhaps went hard at it, the ball seemed to have stopped on the pitch and that must've foiled Rahane's attempt there. Skewed off the toe-end and lobs a sitter to Samson at mid-off, who backtracks and pouches it safely. So, Zak gets the better of his counterpart. Rahane c Samson b 10(9)

4

Morris to Mayank Agarwal, FOUR, wow. Delicate stuff from Agarwal. Opens the bat face to this length ball and runs it towards third man, Sanju had to cover some ground, sprinted to his left but couldn't stop the ball from reaching the ropes

W

to Mayank Agarwal, out Caught by Chris Morris!! The old warhorse gets his second wicket. Agarwal's poor form continues. He was scarced for runs, wanted to throw caution to the winds but doesn't succeed. Went for a on-the-up drive to a good length delivery that probably kicked up a touch. It was the slower ball from that did the trick. He slices it straight to extra-cover, who took a couple of steps back and held onto it. Mayank Agarwal c Chris Morris b 20(18) [4s-2]

4

to du Plessis, FOUR, fabulous shot from du Plessis. Sets up a solid base and caresses it past long-off

4

Morris to Tripathi, FOUR, what a way to get off the mark in T20 League for Tripathi. Leans across to a full ball and blasts it through extra cover

4

Morris to Tripathi, FOUR, edged and four. Morris is not happy. Throws a wild stare at the batsman. On a length and just outside off, Tripathi went hard at it, gets an outside edge that races away to the third man fence

W

Morris to Tripathi, out Caught by Nadeem!! Short ball consumes Tripathi. Morris picks up his first wicket. A lifter angled at the batsman, Tripathi went for the pull. The ball got big on him and he manages a fat top-edge that went up in the air. Nadeem from fine leg darted in and snaffled it with ease. Tripathi c Nadeem b Morris 10(5) [4s-2]

W

to du Plessis, out Caught by Pant!! "Ahhhh, ahhhhh" goes Pant and S Ravi raises his finger. A big blow for Pune. Stunned silence in the crowd. du Plessis tried to be too cheeky, went low to play the scoop over the keeper's head. Gets a faint tickle and Pant nestles it into the gloves. du Plessis c Pant b 8(7) [4s-1]

W

Cummins to Stokes, out Caught by Pant!! Gone! Three wickets in three overs and Pune are in trouble now. Stokes bites the dirt. Cummins reaps reward for his tidy bowling. Again slants it wide of off, Stokes went for a pull. Wasn't too short and all he could manage was an under-edge that was gobbled up by Pant. Smart catch, must say as it was dying. He bent forward and took it cleanly. Stokes c Pant b Cummins 2(5)

6

Anderson to R Bhatia, SIX, take that! Says Bhatia. Gets under this short ball and smokes it over deep mid-wicket. Crunching sound of the willow

6

to Dhoni, SIX, lovely shot, Pune need more of those, Dhoni skips down the track, gets close to the ball and lifts it high and over long-on for a maximum. Chants of MS, MS from the crowd.. Can he make a big score here?

W

to Dhoni, out Caught by Nair!! When things go wrong, they go hopelessly wrong. Even his favourite helicopter shot has gone wrong tonight, that should snuff out whatever little hopes Pune might have had. This was tossed up invitingly by , Dhoni cleared his left leg and whipped it off his toes - flat and hard, but straight to Karun Nair at deep mid-wicket. He didn't have to move an inch, accepts the catch gleefully. MS walks off, so do half the Pune crowd. Dhoni c Nair b 11(14) [6s-1]

6

Cummins to Chahar, SIX, mistimed but six, Chahar just got enough to clear the leaping Billings at wide mid-wicket, got underneath the length delivery, gets plenty of height and just about enough distance

6

Cummins to Chahar, SIX, back-to-back sixes for Chahar, Cummins shortened his length outside off, Chahar backs away, makes room and slaps it over cover. The timing is good and the ball sails over the ropes for another maximum

W

to R Bhatia, out Caught by Chris Morris!! Another wicket for , he's having a better night. This was a floaty leg-break, went wider of off. Bhatia had to fetch that as he played the slog-sweep, went off the toe of the bat and it's a simple catch to Morris at long-on. Bhatia has a look at his bat and walks away. is on a hat-trick now. R Bhatia c Chris Morris b 16(17) [6s-1]

4

to Zampa, FOUR, lovely shot, tosses one wider of off, Zampa gets a big stride forward and drills it through extra-cover, beats the man getting across to his left from long-off

W

to Chahar, out Caught by Pant!! Third wicket for Khan, he's having a ball tonight. Saw Chahar giving him the charge, banged it short and on the stumps, Chahar swung across in hope, gets a thick top-edge - simple catch to Pant. has a few words to say as Chahar walks away. The end is nigh for Pune. Chahar c Pant b 14(6) [6s-2]

D

to Dinda, no run, has Karun plucked a one-handed stunner? The third umpire is called for, the soft call is OUT. Looked like a good catch on first view. Has the ball touched the ground, has he got his fingers underneath? The third umpire is having a look at different angles, this will be a tricky call. NOT OUT it is. Fair call, looked like the ball might just have touched the ground as Karun plucked it. Coming to the ball, it was full and shaping away, squared up Dinda as he was looking to work it towards the on-side, the edge flew to the left of first slip. Karun stuck his left hand out and claimed the catch

4

to Dinda, FOUR, Dinda wants to have some fun, length delivery outside off, he gets forward and thumps it over extra-cover for a boundary

W

to Zampa, out Caught by Samson!! Another catch for Samson and another wicket for . This was another leg-break, bowled slower and on the middle-stump line. Zampa swung across in hope, he had to manufacture all the power himself, doesn't get the elevation either. Samson moves across to his right at deep mid-wicket and takes the offering. The umpire has called for a strategic break with just one wicket remaining. Not sure what the two teams will talk about over the next 150 seconds. Zampa c Samson b 5(7) [4s-1]

W

Cummins to Dinda, out Caught by Mishra!! The Delhi have opened their tally and it's Cummins who has the final wicket. On a good length and on the stumps, Dinda was backing away on the drive, doesn't get hold of the shot and chips it tamely towards cover. Mishra runs forward, dives and completes the catch. A 97-run mauling at home for Pune, they would love to forget today's display as soon as possible. Dinda c Mishra b Cummins 7(7) [4s-1]

W

to Tare, out Caught by Dhoni!! Look at him go. Surely he's inspired by a certain South African in his team - Imran Tahir. As soon as he sees Dhoni complete the catch, is off on a celebratory run. Runs past almost all his mates. Good length ball in the channel around off, Tare has a needless poke at that, the hint of away movement takes the edge and Dhoni does the rest behind the stumps. Tare does not trouble the scorers and PUNE have an early wicket. Tare c Dhoni b 0(5)

4

to Samson, FOUR, classy stuff from Samson. Nothing much wrong with the delivery. Good length ball around off, Samson allowed it to do its bit before opening the bat face and directing it past the backward point fielder. Used the pace on the ball and timed it beautifully

4

to Samson, FOUR, consecutive boundaries for Samson. That should calm the nerves. Overpitched and is punished, Samson strides forward and creams the square drive through the packed off-side field. No need to run for that

4

to Samson, FOUR, Samson has come out firing. Picked the length early on the short of length delivery, got his front leg up and nailed the pull in front of square. That came smack bang off the middle

4

to Samson, FOUR, fourth boundary in five balls for Samson. The start is getting better for DEL. overcompensates and goes full outside off, Samson is up for it and cracks the drive past the diving cover-point fielder. Sped away to the fence

4

to Billings, FOUR, third boundary of the over and leaking runs here. Short and wide outside off, Billings throws the kitchen sink at that and the ball flies off the outside edge, over Faf at slip and into the third man fence

4

to Samson, FOUR, excellent batting. On a length and just outside off, Samson goes up and over cover, once he got it through the infield the result was going to be in his favour

4

to Samson, FOUR, too meted out with the same treatment. Good length ball outside off, Samson leans into the drive and places it square. It is a crowded off-side field and he's threaded that to perfection

4

to Billings, FOUR, not a boundary ball but that's T20. Back of length around off, Billings crouches a bit and swats it away wide of mid-on, not off the middle but he had enough wood on that

4

to Billings, FOUR, last over of the powerplay and Billings has decided to cash in. Advances and gets cramped for room, swings with all his might and drags it off the inner part of the bat to the left of short fine, Dinda can only escort the ball to the fence

4

to Billings, FOUR, poor delivery this and is made to pay. Sprays it down leg and that is easy pickings for any batsman, Billings stays inside the line and whips it fine. No chance for Dinda this time around

W

to Billings, out Bowled!! And off he goes. Gets the crowd going as well. Billings is cursing himself off the field. It is yet another start for the Englishman that is not converted. It's always dangerous to shimmy down the wicket for a bowler like , who generally skids the ball through, and that is what happened. Billings came down the wicket and pushed it through, by the time the Kent batsman could get his bat down, the ball was past him and crashed into off-stump. The partnership has been broken and just the opening PUNE needed. Billings b 24(17) [4s-4]

4

to Pant, FOUR, tosses it up slow on middle and leg. Overpitched as well. Pant waits for the ball and drills it down the track. No chance for the long-on fielder

6

Bhatia to Pant, SIX, hits it and poses fo the photogaphs does Pant. That's Instagammable. Full delivey with no pace behind it. He clubbes it ove the bowle's head and the ball sails ove the sightsceen. Fist maximum of the day

6

Bhatia to Pant, SIX, second six of the ove and Pant is tuning the heat on hee. Vey simila to the fist six. Full and slow fom Bhatia. Once again, Pant thumps it down the gound and the ball lands wide of the sightsceen

OT

to Samson, 1 run, just short of the long-on fielder and Samson reaches his fifty! Pitched up delivery, Samson lofted it over mid-on and falls in front of the diving long-on fielder. Samson collects a single to get to his milestone

6

to Samson, SIX, that's a pressure-releaser! Brings up the 50-run stand in style! overpitches and Samson takes full toll of it. Leans forward and sends it sailing over long-off for a gigantic six

W

to Pant, out Pant Run Out!! That's brilliant stuff from Mayank Agarwal. The excellence cuts short Pant's innings. To start with, bowled a wide yorker. Pant squeezes it out, finds Mayank at point and sets off. Mayank finds the target directly and Pant is well short of his ground. Pant run out (Mayank Agarwal) 31(22) [4s-1 6s-2]

4

to Samson, FOUR, nice looking shot! Short ball, Samson has ample time to move across and pull it behind square on the leg-side. Well wide of the fine leg fielder. One bounce over the rope

6

to Samson, SIX, that's a monster! Fired in on the legs of Samson and Samson deposits it into the mid-wicket stands with a heave. That cleared the boundary rope by a long way

6

to Samson, SIX, welcome to your new spell says Samson! Length ball wide of off allowing Samson to free his arms. He is balanced in the crease and elevates it straight over long-off for a six

6

to Samson, SIX, that's a stunning shot! Samson moved leg-side and follows him with a bumper. Samson has no problems whatsoever as he hooks it over square leg. No fielder there and Samson collects another maximum

4

to Samson, FOUR, highest score in this season! Cheeky from Samson! Low full toss outside off, Samson picks it and laps it well wide of short fine and the ball dribbles away into the fence

6

to Samson, SIX, what a stunning way to get to your maiden T20 century! bowls it quick, full and on the stumps, Samson moves slightly to his right and lofts it down the ground. MUSCLED

W

to Samson, out Bowled!! gets his man and Samson walks back raising his bat. Gets a standing ovation from his team mates in the dug-out. It was a flipper that did the trick. Samson looked to pull it through the on-side and failed to make connection. The ball cannons onto the stumps. Samson b 102(63) [4s-8 6s-5]

4

to Chris Morris, FOUR, that's one helluva way to open your account! Leg-break outside off, Morris lofts it inside-out and gets off the mark with a boundary

6

to Chris Morris, SIX, that's a gigantic hit. For a moment, I thought it might go on and land onto the Pune-Mumbai Expressway. Fullish length, Morris moves to his right and wallops it over long-on. That went miles in the air and cleared the fence by a long way as well. High and handsome

4

to Chris Morris, FOUR, the gamble hasn't paid off. A wicket was scalped, but the overall result - 22 runs off the 19th over. Flipper outside off, Morris crouches and lifts it inside out. No chance for long-off

4

to Chris Morris, FOUR, that's a gross delivery! Short of a good length delivery with no pace behind it. Morris moves across and helps it away well wide of short fine. Runs away into the fence

4

to Chris Morris, FOUR, that's a brilliant stroke! can't believe that. He didn't do much wrong there. It was bowled in the blockhole wide of off and Morris opens his bat face and drills the squeeze wide of point

6

to Chris Morris, SIX, wow! Bowls length and gets punished. On the pads and just a flick of the wrists. The ball has more than enough wings to clear the square leg fence

6

to Chris Morris, SIX, fittingly Morris finishes the innings with a six. What a cameo this was from him. bowls it short and Morris easily muscles the pull over deep mid-wicket. The man in the deep is just a spectator. Well that has been the story for the last few overs
