4

Sharma to Tripathi, FOUR, 'I am not going to change! That's how I play, that's how I will today as well...' Not my words but this shot from Tripathi suggests that. Steps down and cracks the drive past cover, gave himself a bit of room to help with the flow of the bat

4

Sharma to Tripathi, FOUR, although he shows his cards too early, he has managed to get what he wanted. Some card he had. Stepped down and was followed by a short ball that did not have enough pace. Flat-pulled it along the ground to the deep square leg fence

4

to Tripathi, FOUR, off the toe of the willow but enough to beat third man to his right. Width on offer outside off and Tripathi stays his ground before cutting it past the man at backward point

4

to Tripathi, FOUR, too straight and with 's inward angle it becomes all the more easy. Easily deflected to the fine leg fence, the man in that region is in the ring

6

Tewatia to Tripathi, SIX, bye, bye ball. Margin of error against this man is so less. Tewatia dares to flight a bit and gets slogged over the deep mid-wicket fence. Well into the crowd with the wind

4

to Rahane, FOUR, shortish. Rahane sees early and shapes back to cut, beats the dive from the fielder at cover

W

to Tripathi, out Bowled!! Tripathi has to go. Outrageous attempt from him. Got a long way across to help the sweep over the infield on the on-side. Missed it completely and the ball crashed the bails. Tripathi b 28(20) [4s-4 6s-1]

D

Tewatia to Rahane, 1 run, Rahane slogs and is in danger there. Guptill has it covered with a reverse cup at deep mid-wicket. Hold on, he is not having a good day and so, he drops it

6

to Rahane, SIX, Rahane skips down and chips over the wide long-on fence. It is all over! Pune are through, winning by 9 wickets. Rahane gets some runs, finally

W

to Guptill, out Caught by Manoj Tiwary!! Disastrous start from PUN. Dream start for PUNE. A gentle floater first-up from , on a good length and well wide of off, Guptill went for the drive, can't keep it down and it's a simple catch for Tiwary - at short extra-cover. Delight amongst the crowd, despair for the PUN supporters. Guptill c Manoj Tiwary b 0(1)

4

to Shaun Marsh, FOUR, almost another! On a good length and well wide of off, Marsh was leaning on the drive, the ball held up slightly and hits him high on the bat - went in the air and just wide of Tiwary at extra-cover, beats mid-off and rolls away to the fence

4

Thakur to Shaun Marsh, FOUR, cracking shot, leg-stump half-volley from Shardul, Marsh waits on it, leans into the on-drive and finds the gap wide of mid-wicket - should get plenty of confidence with that blow

D

to Saha, 1 run, edged and dropped, MS is the culprit, went late for the catch, got his fingertips and the ball pops out. This was full and wide of off, Saha went for the drive, played away from his body, gets a thick edge that went right in the middle of the keeper and Christian at first slip. He didn't budge, MS went for it as an afterthought and fumbled

6

to Saha, SIX, cracking shot, length ball on Saha's pads, he picked up the length and swung through the line, got plenty of height and for a moment - Tripathi at deep square leg was an interested party. But the wind comes into Saha's aid and the ball kept going - clears him by a distance

W

Thakur to Shaun Marsh, out Caught by Smith!! That's a dolly and Smith has gobbled up his Australian teammate. On a good length and angling across the left-hander, Shardul bowled this one with a scrambled seam. The ball once again looked like it stopped on the batsman - Marsh was committed on the drive, couldn't keep it down, went off the splice of the bat and spoons a simple catch to Smith at mid-off. Shaun Marsh c Smith b Thakur 10(13) [4s-2]

4

Thakur to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, cracking shot, width on offer from Shardul, Morgan gets on top of the bounce and cracks it square on the off-side, beats the fielder at point and rolls away to the fence

W

to Eoin Morgan, out Eoin Morgan Run Out!! Brilliant work from Unadkat and PUN have lost their third wicket. Exceptional piece of fielding from the Pune pacer, attacked the ball after Morgan had pushed it in front of mid-on. It was Morgan's call and he comes second best as Unadkat is quick on the ball and makes a direct hit - even as he was sliding onto the ground. Eoin Morgan run out (Unadkat) 4(4) [4s-1]

4

to Rahul Tewatia, FOUR, lovely shot, fraction overpitched and wide of off, Tewatia is quick to get forward and creams it into the wide gap at cover-point, no need to run for those and Tewatia is off and running in style

W

Thakur to Rahul Tewatia, out Caught by Unadkat!! Unadkat is having a dream day in the field - follows up the direct hit with an acrobatic catch at short fine leg. PUN are in doldrums now and the move to promote Tewatia up the order has failed. This was banged in short and on his body, Tewatia was late on the pull, the ball ballooned off the top-edge and lobbed behind the keeper. On another day it could have dropped down in no man's land - but not today. Unadkat moves across to his left, goes with both hands and completes a fine diving catch. Rahul Tewatia c Unadkat b Thakur 4(3) [4s-1]

W

Thakur to Maxwell, out Caught by Rahane!! It is going from bad to worse for PUN, Maxwell clips one in the air and finds Rahane to perfection at deep backward square leg. Out for a duck and PUN have lost half their side now. A nothing ball from Shardul, leg-stump half-volley, Maxwell got inside the line and clipped it firmly - he didn't bother to keep it down and found Rahane to perfection in the deep. He can't believe it as he trudges off. Maxwell c Rahane b Thakur 0(3)

4

Thakur to Axar, FOUR, edged and four, nearly a fourth wicket for Shardul. This was a floaty delivery outside off, Axar saw the width and went with hard hands on the drive, gets a thick edge that perfectly bisects the keeper and Christain at wide slip

6

to Axar, SIX, poor ball from , drops one short and on the stumps, Axar rocks back and pulls it high and over mid-wicket, has just enough to clear the ropes on the full

W

to Saha, out Caught by Dhoni!! PUN slump into further trouble, strikes in his first over. This was full and wide of off, Saha was lunging forward - he was looking to dab it down towards third man - gets a thick edge, to the right of MS. Dhoni doesn't drop it this time around, dives to his right and clutches it safely. Six wickets down and PUN are pretty much done and dusted at the moment. Saha c Dhoni b 13(17) [6s-1]

W

to Axar, out Caught by Dhoni!! Very loose. Just not what you'd expect at this stage. Teases him with a wide fuller length delivery does enticing the drive. Axar cannot resist. Throws his hands out and chases it with a drive. Gets a fat outside edge in the process and this time Dhoni doesn't even have to dive. Pune are tired of their celebrations as well. Just smiles around. The 100th dismissal for Dhoni this. Axar c Dhoni b 22(20) [4s-1 6s-1]

W

to Swapnil Singh, out Caught by Dhoni!! Relay stuff. Executed to perfection. Dhoni adds a few more to his tally. For the first time in this over, goes full and gives Swapnil the opportunity to swing his arms. And he cannot resist. Throws his hands out, toe ends it and Dan, at first slip reverse cups of some sort and the pop out is plucked out by the keeper. Ah, kind. Swapnil Singh c Dhoni b 10(17)

W

to Ishant, out Caught by Smith!! All too easy. All too familiar. The tried and tested ploy to a tail-ender and for the umpteenth time in history, it pays off. lets out one of the floatiest of leg-breaks tossing it very wide outside the sticks. Ishant sinks on a knee, slogs it big time. It grows big on him, takes the outside half of the bat and all it finds is cover. Ishant c Smith b 1(5)

W

to Mohit Sharma, out Caught by Christian!! That's curtains. Mohit doesn't believe in knocking the ball around and playing out his quota of overs. Apparently. Buries down with a stoop looking to slog it out of the park. Done in the flight and the agricultural hoick manages only a miscue off the under edge to tonk high in the air. Only towards extra cover. Mohit Sharma c Christian b 6(12)
