4

to Kohli, FOUR, cracking shot, width on offer from , Kohli leans into the ball and cracks it in front of square on the off-side, splits the gap past point and rolls away to the fence

W

to Head, out Bowled!! has struck early and it's a poor start for BLR once again! Lack of application did Head there, on a length and angling back into the left-hander, Head was rooted to his crease as he aimed a shovel over mid-wicket, gets an inside edge and the ball just clips the bails - the zing lights are up and PUNE celebrate. Head b 2(5)

4

to Kohli, FOUR, creamed, but that was poor fielding from Tahir, went down in a heap and ended up diving over the ball. On a good length and well outside off, Kohli leans into the drive and finds the gap past cover. Tahir ran to his right and made a big mess of it

4

to Kohli, FOUR, edged and four, width on offer from , Kohli's eyes lit up, threw the kitchen sink at that, gets a thick edge that races away through the vacant slip cordon

4

to Kohli, FOUR, lovely, the best of the lot, it was a long half-volley from , on Kohli's pads, he presses across and flicks it in front of square on the on-side, the man in the deep has no chance

W

Ferguson to de Villiers, out Caught by Manoj Tiwary!! That's a big wicket for PUNE, another failure for AB. Massive celebration, they know how big this wicket is. On a good length and just outside off, AB saw the width and creamed it off the back-foot - didn't bother to keep it down though - straight into the bucket hands of Tiwary at short extra-cover. He holds on and BLR have lost their second wicket. de Villiers c Manoj Tiwary b Ferguson 3(8)

4

to Kedar Jadhav, FOUR, nice way to get going, tad shorter and wider of off, Kedar is quick to rock back and pulls it high and over mid-on, a few bounces and over the ropes

W

Ferguson to Kedar Jadhav, out Kedar Jadhav Run Out!! Kohli looks livid, but he has a part in this dismissal. Coming to the ball, it was short and wide from Ferguson, Kedar chopped it to the left of backward point. The fielder dived to his left and made a half-stop. That made Kohli set-off for a quick single before being sent back. The throw is at the bowler and he doesn't make a clean stop. The ball rolls away a few yards away from him, this makes Kedar think there's a run and he hares off - without even having a glance at his partner. Kohli was back to the action, by the time he turned around - he saw his partner near him. Ferguson throws the ball to his keeper who does the rest. Kedar Jadhav run out ( Ferguson/Dhoni) 7(12) [4s-1]

W

Sundar to Sachin Baby, out Caught by Smith!! Kohli looks upset as another wicket falls down! Baby's comeback is brief and short. This was pushed through flatter and on his pads, Baby went back on the punch, hit it firmly but in the air - just about carried to mid-wicket where Smith slid forward and held on. He wasn't sure that it carried, but the soft call was OUT and it stayed with the original call. Sachin Baby c Smith b Sundar 2(4)

W

Ferguson to Binny, out Caught by Washington Sundar!! BLR are falling away, Vettori looks motionless in the dug-out! Binny falls to the short ball and his team have lost half their side now. Are they going to be the first team to be knocked out? The pressure of the dot balls consumed Binny here. This was a well directed short ball, Binny was beaten for pace as he looked to pull, gets a steepling top-edge, high and towards long leg. Sundar settles under it and holds on. Binny c Washington Sundar b Ferguson 1(7)

W

to Negi, out Caught by Christian!! Negi had to go for it, but he shouldn't have hit it straight down the ground. Kohli is fuming under that helmet, but he doesn't reveal anything. He's standing there helpless. Expectedly, with a left-hander on strike and Negi known for his big-hits, bowls the googly that is well outside off stump, the batsman would have ideally wanted to hit that over cover, but he hit it very straight and offered a simple catch to long-off. Negi c Christian b 3(7)

W

to Milne, out Caught by Smith!! Catching practice for Smith. opts for the googly, finishes around the leg stump, Milne doesn't control the flick, hits it straight to mid-wicket. PUNE would want to wrap this up quickly and boost their net run rate. Milne c Smith b 5(8)

6

to Kohli, SIX, that's a googly too short and Kohli thrashes it. Shortish delivery and down the leg-side, sits up nicely, Kohli sends that over the mid-wicket boundary. Fifty up

W

to Badree, out Bowled!! The googly is very effective against the lower-order batsmen. Third wicket and all three with the googly. Badree just swings through the line, misses the ball completely and has his sticks shattered. Badree b 2(7)

D

to Kohli, 2 runs, in the airrrr, just short of the fielder, Tiwary it was. Looks like he didn't see the ball at the last moment and it crashes into his knee

W

to Kohli, out Caught by (sub)Mayank Agarwal!! It's an easy ploy for a bowler on this pitch. When the batsman is looking to score big, all you have to do is take pace of the ball and ensure it's not too full. Kohli sliced that drive with one hand, flew high over cover, the substitute fielder makes no mistake in the deep. Kohli c (sub)Mayank Agarwal b 55(48) [4s-4 6s-1]

4

to Aravind, FOUR, that's a good lofted drive, but PUNE have won by a massive 61 runs. This will lift their net run rate by some margin. Is that it then for BLR? Maybe they still have an outside chance

4

to Tripathi, FOUR, short ball and Tripathi takes full toll of it. Gets into a good position and smack the pull through mid-wicket

4

to Tripathi, FOUR, short ball at the body, Tripathi looks to pull and gets an inside edge that runs away into the fine leg fence. No chance for the man at 45

W

to Rahane, out Caught by Milne!! There's the breakthrough! Rahane perishes to a full toss. Rahane wanted to sweep and gets a top edge that lobs up towards short fine leg. Milne, runs back, and gobbles it up with ease. Rahane c Milne b 6(8)

4

to Smith, FOUR, slightly overpitched and Smith puts it away! He gets low and slog sweeps it behind square leg. What an excellent shot to get off the mark

6

to Tripathi, SIX, wow! Welcome to Pune says Tripathi to . Pitched up delivery on middle and leg, Tripathi sinks down on one knee and slogs it away over long-on

4

to Tripathi, FOUR, backs away and slashes the drive between cover and point. The ball races away into the fence. The batsman manufactured his own room

4

to Tripathi, FOUR, good looking shot. Jogs down the track, gets to the pitch and lofts it over mid-on. The man at deep mid-wicket runs across, but couldn't stop it

W

to Tripathi, out Caught by Kedar Jadhav!!Edged and gone. Nothing great about this delivery. A wide delivery outside off that was there to be punished. The cut shot was on and Tripathi goes for it. All he manages is a faint top edge that is pocketed by the keeper. Kohli should be a relieved man. Tripathi c Kedar Jadhav b 37(28) [4s-4 6s-1]

4

to Manoj Tiwary, FOUR, nice way to get off the mark. Sliding in on the pads, Tiwary is quick to get low and sweep it fine. The ball has enough legs to dribble away past the boundary rope

6

to Smith, SIX, looked a bit fidgety last over, but boy he has nailed this out of the screws. Underneath a flat delivery and he goes spank over mid-wicket

4

to Smith, FOUR, is quick to transfer his weight onto the back foot, and why? He spotted the length early, which is short, and smashed the cut behind point

4

to Smith, FOUR, tweaks a touch outside off, Smith goes with hard hands as he looks to go stright of mid-off/cover. Thick outside edge escapes past the keeper

6

to Manoj Tiwary, SIX, that's the shot of the game for me. Lovely use of the feet, comes dancing down towards the pitch of the ball and bulldozes it into the mid-wicket stands. Tonk!

4

to Smith, FOUR, thank you so much says Smith. Can't bowl there. On the pads, he gets his front leg away and bullies it behind square with sheer timing

4

to Smith, FOUR, errs on the other side now. Too much width outside off, Smith adjusts his bat angle to smack it in the gap between backward point and short third

OT

to Manoj Tiwary, 1 run, the 50-partnership up. Opens the bat face and guides a single down to third man

W

to Smith, out Caught by Milne!! How big a wicket is this? You just have to look at the celebrations in BLR camp. Smith throws his head down as he makes a long walk back to the pavilion. Shuffles and takes on the slower ball, looks for the pick-up hoick but gets it too low on the bat. In in the air and it gives ample time for deep square to settle under it. A slight fumble, but Milne had it covered. Smith c Milne b 45(32) [4s-5 6s-1]

4

to Dhoni, FOUR, there you go! There's no stopping. MS knows when to fancy his chances, cross-seam delivery with lot of room on offer, he cashes on the the opportunity as he slashes the cut behind point

4

to Manoj Tiwary, FOUR, whack! Short ball angling into the body, Tiwary gets into good position and telegraphs the pull to the left of fine leg

6

to Dhoni, SIX, the 400th six of the tournament and it has come from MS. No fuss, just a touch outside his crease, picks the bones out of a half-volley and golf-swings it straight down the ground for a 80-plus metre maximum

4

to Manoj Tiwary, FOUR, streaky but Tiwary won't mind. The Chineese cut as they say. Full, dipping in around the blockhole area, Tiwary flashes hard and a smidge of inside edge does the trick for him. Skims past the leg-stump and rushes down to the fine leg fence

4

to Manoj Tiwary, FOUR, jumps down the pitch and looks to mow across the line. The bat face turns on impact and the leading edge runs wide of a diving short third. Much-needed boundary that
