Commentary (Pune Warriors India innings)

Nuwan Kulasekara is named the Man of the Match. That's it from all of us then. There is a single match tomorrow between Bangalore and Mohali. Join us for that. Till then, it's farewell!

Until the last two overs, Pune were always in the game but once Steven Smith holed out, it was game,set match and Dhoni is now 1-1 with his former captain, Ganguly. Once again some average death bowling and near-average death batting have cost Pune this match. The openers could not do well. Sourav Ganguly scored reasonably well but could not up the ante. It was then left to the lower middle order, who contributed with the bat. They needed a knock from Steven Smith in the end but it never came. So, Chennai keep up their trend of winning alternatives games alive and are tied with Pune in the points table. But Pune have the higher run-rate.

Commentary (Chennai Super Kings innings)

Nuwan Kulasekara is named the Man of the Match. That's it from all of us then. There is a single match tomorrow between Bangalore and Mohali. Join us for that. Till then, it's farewell!

Until the last two overs, Pune were always in the game but once Steven Smith holed out, it was game,set match and Dhoni is now 1-1 with his former captain, Ganguly.

It was then left to the lower middle order, who contributed with the bat. They needed a knock from Steven Smith in the end but it never came. So, Chennai keep up their trend of winning alternatives games alive and are tied with Pune in the points table. But Pune have the higher run-rate.

Pune would feel that they have just given away a lot of runs. Catches were dropped and the first wicket came in only in the 16th over. Faf du Plessis and Subramaniam Badrinath gave a perfect start to the team. Dhoni, who is always considered an excellent finisher, once again gave the required push with 28 runs off 12 balls. Nehra got two while Samuels got three wickets. Sharma bowled economically as well. Does Pune have enough to chase down 165? Find out in some time.

19.1 M Samuels to R Jadeja, SIX! Good strike! Full in the slot at 111.3 kph, Jadeja sends it many a mile down the ground to beat long on. 152/4

Faf du Plessis and Subramaniam Badrinath are the openers walking out to the middle. Murali Kartik to bowl with the new ball. Once again Sourav Ganguly resorts to Kartik to bowl the first over.

TOSS - Sourav Ganguly won the toss and PUNE WILL FIELD FIRST. Two changes for Pune. Murali Kartik comes in for Ashok Dinda. Manish Pandey also gets a chance in place of Mithun Manhas. Chennai have three changes. Albie Morkel, who has flown back to South Africa for a funeral of a friend will miss out and Doug Bollinger will take his place. Yo Mahesh and Murali Vijay are replaced by Wriddhiman Saha and Shadab Jakati.

Hello and welcome to the second match of today between Chennai and Pune at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. In their last encounter, it was Ganguly's men who won it at their own den. This time around, it's a different ball game and both the teams would be itching to get the winning points.
