Commentary (Kings XI Punjab innings)

Dimitri Mascarenhas is named the Man of the Match. That's all we have for today. Join us tomorrow for the the only match between Kolkata and Jaipur at 2000 IST. Till then, farewell!

So, a low-scoring match when Pune posted 115 but they could never back it up with their bowling. Even though Valtathy was dismissed in the first ball of the innings, the bowling failed to get going. Shaun Marsh struck gold with his form with a superb half-century. He had a poor run in the international circuit as well, but today he has led Mohali to their first victory of the tournament.

17.4 M Samuels to P Chawla, FOUR! MOHALI WIN BY 7 WICKETS! Chawla creams the full delivery through covers and it found the ropes. Chawla had no idea that he hit the winning runs as he set up to play the next ball. After realization dawned on him, then the celebrations begun. 116/3

17.3 M Samuels to P Chawla, DROPPED! Looks to work it away on the leg side and it goes off the top edge towards short third man, Manish Pandey, who dives full-stretched, takes it with one hand but fails to hold on to it. One run. 112/3

Commentary (Pune Warriors India innings)

Dimitri Mascarenhas was the star on a pitch which seems to be doing good. The second innings may assist the bowlers more than it did in the Pune batting. Apart from Mithun Manhas, none of the batsmen got going. Cannot write off Mohali with their batting but tough to rule out Pune as well, who managed to defend 129 against Mumbai. Join us in a while for the chase.

18.6 P Awana to A Nehra, OUT! Pune all out for 115! Short delivery, patted down on the off side, both the batsmen were hesitant to run and Awana comes charging down and takes the bails off at the striker's end. Third umpire shows that Dinda was short. 115/10

18.5 P Awana to A Dinda, Length down the leg side, tucked away to square leg for one. In fact a leg bye. 115/9

18.4 P Awana to A Dinda, Short of a length delivery outside off, Dinda swings across and misses. 114/9

18.3 P Awana to A Nehra, Length down the leg side, Nehra taps it towards square leg for one. 114/9

18.2 P Awana to A Dinda, Fuller length, flicked away through square leg for one. 113/9

18.1 P Awana to A Dinda, Short delivery this time, Dinda aims to play but misses. 112/9

Dimitri Mascarenhas is named the Man of the Match. That's all we have for today. Join us tomorrow for the the only match between Kolkata and Jaipur at 2000 IST. Till then, farewell!

So, a low-scoring match when Pune posted 115 but they could never back it up with their bowling. Even though Valtathy was dismissed in the first ball of the innings, the bowling failed to get going.
