Commentary (Mumbai Indians innings)

Steven Smith is named the Man of the Match. That's it from us then. There is another match today between Jaipur and Mohali, so switch over to that and enjoy all the Indian T20 league action! Farewell!

A spirited victory by Pune to cause an upset and beat Mumbai in their own den. Ganguly with his expertise, made good use of the bowlers with Murali Karthik, Rahul Sharma, Ashok Dinda and Marlon Samuels bowling in tandem and to get the required breakthroughs.

Commentary (Pune Warriors India innings)

Steven Smith is named the Man of the Match. That's it from us then. There is another match today between Jaipur and Mohali, so switch over to that and enjoy all the Indian T20 league action! Farewell!

A spirited victory by Pune to cause an upset and beat Mumbai in their own den. Ganguly with his expertise, made good use of the bowlers with Murali Karthik, Rahul Sharma, Ashok Dinda and Marlon Samuels bowling in tandem and to get the required breakthroughs. None of the Mumbai batsman could manage to get on with the scoring except James Franklin and Dinesh Karthik, which led to their downfall.

19.6 A Dinda to M Patel, Length and defended to the leg side. PUNE WIN BY 29 RUNS! 100/9

19.5 A Dinda to M Patel, Full and hit straight to cover. 100/9

Patel is the last man in.

19.4 A Dinda to H Singh, OUT! Straight, full, on the middle stump at 135.5 kph and the umpire cannot get an easier decision to make. Harbhajan looked to slog across the line, but the ball reversed back in a hint to crash onto his toe of his back leg. One wicket to go now. Dinda has four. 100/9

19.3 A Dinda to H Singh, Full and straight, on the blockhole, driven down to Smith at long on. Singh does not take the single. 100/8

19.2 A Dinda to H Singh, Slower delivery outside off, Harbhajan reaches out to it and smacks it to the mid-wicket fence. 100/8

19.1 A Dinda to H Singh, Full toss, Harbhajan shuffles and smacks that down to long on. Does not take the single. 96/8

Pune could not adjust to the slowness of the pitch and that could be seen as they lost a couple of wickets dragging the ball back onto the stumps. Uthappa and Steven Smith hung around well to post a decent total. Is it enough to cause problems for Mumbai? Join us in a while to find out.

19.6 M Patel to M Kartik, OUT! Run out in the last ball of the innings. Fuller length delivery, driven well through covers. Sharma left his crease for two but had to come back as the throw came in fast from Pollard. D Karthik has to fetch it and then throw at the stumps. Third umpire was called in to confirm that Rahul Sharma was short. Pune finish on 129/9 in their 20 overs! 129/9

19.5 M Patel to M Kartik, Over-pitched, driven straight back to Patel and they cannot take the single. 128/8

19.4 M Patel to M Kartik, Full and straight outside off at 131.8 kph, Kartik does not get any bat on that one. 128/8

Rahul Sharma walks in now.

19.3 M Patel to S Smith, OUT! Smith's little patient innings ends now. Slower delivery, Smith looks to pick the deep mid-wicket fence with a slog, almost gets it but Pollard just takes it near the ropes. 128/8

19.2 M Patel to S Smith, Agonizingly slow ball, short and Smith still cannot get any bat on it. 128/7

19.1 M Patel to S Smith, FOUR! Risky but gets hold of it. Short outside off, Smith had backed away well enough on the off side and scoops it over the keeper to fine leg. Good start for Pune first up. 128/7

The Pune openers are out now. Manish Pandey and Sourav Ganguly make their way out the middle. The Men in Blue (Mumbai) have a group hurdle as well. Malinga to start off proceedings.

Pune - R Uthappa, S Ganguly, C Ferguson, M Samuels, M Pandey, S Smith, B Kumar, W Parnell, M Karthik, A Dinda, R Sharma.

Mumbai - R Levi, S Yadav, A Rayadu, Rohit Sharma, J Franklin, D Karthik, K Pollard, Harbhajan, M Patel, P Ojha, L Malinga.

The conditions are hot and humid out there. Harbhajan reckons that the pitch will not change much throughout the day while Ganguly feels that it is a good bowling track.

Toss - Harbhajan Singh spins the coin and wins the toss. MUMBAI WILL BOWL FIRST. Sourav Ganguly says that he would have batted first and also mentions he will open the batting, just like he did for his national side as well. So both the captains got what they wanted.

Undoubtedly, it could have been touted as the clash between India's two best openers in ODIs, Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly. But sadly, Tendulkar will not play in this match. Pune will be led by a positive Ganguly, who will start afresh in this season of the tournament after playing only four matches in the last season. For Mumbai, they would look to continue their good form after a victory against Chennai in the first match.

We are all set for the first late afternoon match of the Indian T20 league between Mumbai and Pune at the Wankhede Stadium. Hello and welcome one and all. Sit tight and enjoy this one.

17.2 P Ojha to B Kumar, OUT! A left-armer's dream ball comes to reality. Lands it on leg, it rips back in with lot of turn to clip the top of off stump as Kumar's flick was nowhere near the line of the ball. Murali Kartik from Pune might be licking up his fingers seeing this turn. 105/7

17.1 P Ojha to B Kumar, Down the leg side, Kumar gets a leading edge on the off side. 105/6

Dinda into the attack now.

16.6 M Samuels to H Singh, A tad slow for Samuels' pace today, 101.8 kph, Harbhajan gets an inside edge down to short fine leg for one. Just seven off the over. Excellent one. 45 needed off 18 balls. 85/6

Samuels back on.

14.6 M Kartik to K Pollard, Comes over the wicket and bowls a beauty. Lands it outside leg and it rips away to go past Pollard's blade to beat the outside edge, as well as the off stump.

Suryakumar Yadav walks in at number 6.

10.5 M Kartik to D Karthik, OUT! Murali Kartik gets the other Karthik now. Beautiful delivery, expecting Dinesh to come down the track and bangs in short, Dinesh Karthik was way down the track and missed out on that. Robin Uthappa does the stumping easily.

8.5 K Pollard to C Ferguson, OUT! Foolish running from Ferguson. Puts it away through point and Rohit Sharma takes his time, sets up and aims one stump to hit bull's eye. Ferguson had come running forward for a non-existing run. He had no chance to reach back and when he did, flung his bat in frustration after running himself out. Pune in more than a spot of bother now. 47/4

8.4 K Pollard to C Ferguson, DROPPED! Full toss on the pads at 123.3 kph, Ferguson flicks it away. Harbhajan at square leg gets to it but it goes off his hands down to fine leg for two. 47/3

6.6 M Patel to R Uthappa, Once again a similar delivery at 127.2 kph, this time kicks off after pitching and whizzes past Uthappa's blade. The run-rate is a staggering one of just under five and Pune should look to up the scoring now. 34/3
