Commentary (Kings XI Punjab innings)

Marlon Samuels is named the Man of the Match. That's all we have. It's been Pune's night once again and they looked top notch. Join us tomorrow for the match between Mumbai and Deccan at 2000 IST. Till then, farewell!

The lower order could never convert their starts even as the pitch had the odd bounce here and there. The 27-run over in the Pune innings has just proved the difference.

Mohali had never had it going in their chase. Once again their top-order fared poorly. One noticeable thing was the poor running between the wickets. Mandeep Singh once again batted well for his 24 but not to the required level.

The margin of victory says 22 runs but Pune had it well in their hands right from the word go. Both Ganguly, captain of Pune and Dravid, captain of Jaipur have registered a victory today once again just like two days back and co-incidentally, by 22 runs.

19.6 M Samuels to B Sharma, Flicked away to Steven Smith at deep square leg for one. PUNE WIN BY 22 RUNS! 144/8

19.5 M Samuels to B Sharma, FOUR! Extra runs for Mohali but to no avail. Wide outside off, drilled through covers for a boundary. 143/8

19.4 M Samuels to B Sharma, SIX! Clean as you can get! Fuller and Sharma lofts it over long on to clear the fence. 139/8

Praveen Kumar walks in at number 10.

18.6 A Dinda to J Faulkner, OUT! Faulkner is gone now and Ganguly takes his second catch. Fuller outside off, he looks to clear covers but fails in his elevation and Ganguly does the rest. The match is practically impossible to win for Mohali. 131/8

18.5 A Dinda to B Sharma, Length on middle, played away to mid-wicket for one. 131/7

14.1 A Nehra to P Chawla, SIX! Chawla smokes it dearly now. In the smashing zone outside off, Chawla zonked it away over the long off fence. 90/5

4.5 A Nehra to A Nayar, Huge LBW shout. Length at 141.5 kph, some pace and Nayar is trapped on his front foot. Nehra's excessive appeal earns just a loud 'No' from the umpire. Replays show it be more closer than it looked to the naked eye. 12/2

Slip in now, in the form of Marlon Samuels.

4.2 A Nehra to M Singh, Mistimes it and it goes to mid on for one. Has to rush in and a direct throw would have done him in. Poor poor running from Mandeep Singh. Maybe the noise from the audience is too much but the batsmen can see each other right? 12/2

4.1 A Nehra to M Singh, Caught behind appeal or LBW appeal! Not sure which one. Short and it kept low as Mandeep failed to pull it. Went off the pads to Uthappa the keeper and they appeal unsuccessfully. 11/2

3.2 M Samuels to M Singh, OUT! Another run out and this is turning out to be complete harakiri from Mohali. Mandeep flicked it straight to Smith at mid-wicket. Gilchrist was way short in reaching at the striker's end and Uthappa gets a fiery throw to knock the stumps out. 9/2

3.1 M Samuels to M Singh, Spinning in, cut to point. 9/1

2.6 A Dinda to M Singh, Flicks it away for one to end the over. 9/1

2.5 A Dinda to M Singh, Length outside off at 144.4 kph, phew some pace. Singh had no answer to it, getting beaten. 8/1

2.2 A Dinda to A Gilchrist, Short and Gilchrist gets an inside edge off his pull. 7/1

Mandeep Singh walks in at number 3.

2.1 A Dinda to P Valthaty, OUT! Comical dismissal but Mohali do not see any humour in this. A pacy skiddy delivery, Valthathy fails to get bat on that and Dinda's appeal is turned down. The ball had gone to short third man and Gilchrist was down at the other end. Steven Smith throws but no one was there at the stumps. But the batsmen were at the striker's end and Murali Kartik collected it and had all the time to whip the bails off. Some confusion as both the batsmen were at the crease, but at the time when Kartik flicked the bails off, Valtathy had come off his crease, sacrificing his wicket. 7/1

1.6 M Samuels to A Gilchrist, Short and Gilchrist hits it hard, Ferguson at cover-point stops it well. 7/0

1.5 M Samuels to A Gilchrist, Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 7/0

1.4 M Samuels to A Gilchrist, Short and chopped away to the man at square. 7/0

1.3 M Samuels to A Gilchrist, Skids on with some bounce and pace and Gilchrist has no answer to it. 7/0

1.2 M Samuels to A Gilchrist, FOUR! Loosener-type delivery. Gilchrist chops this short and wide delivery to the point fence. 7/0

1.1 M Samuels to A Gilchrist, Short and skidding on, Gilchrist gets an inside edge to bounce over the wickets. 3/0

Marlon Samuels, the offie to bowl.

0.6 A Dinda to A Gilchrist, Length on the pads, goes off Adam's pads for a leg bye on the leg side. 3/0

0.5 A Dinda to P Valthaty, Short and wide at 143.5 kph, goes off the toe end down to third man for one to tee away Valtathy now. 2/0

0.4 A Dinda to P Valthaty, Very good ball. Fast and skidy at 139.2 kph, just nips back in to shave past Valtathy's bat and his off stump. 1/0

0.3 A Dinda to P Valthaty, Again bangs in back of a length well outside off at 140.6 kph, Valtathy pulls and it sneaks through. 1/0

Commentary (Pune Warriors India innings)

Marlon Samuels is named the Man of the Match. That's all we have. It's been Pune's night once again and they looked top notch. Join us tomorrow for the match between Mumbai and Deccan at 2000 IST. Till then, farewell!

The lower order could never convert their starts even as the pitch had the odd bounce here and there. The 27-run over in the Pune innings has just proved the difference.

Mohali had never had it going in their chase. Once again their top-order fared poorly. One noticeable thing was the poor running between the wickets. Mandeep Singh once again batted well for his 24 but not to the required level.

The margin of victory says 22 runs but Pune had it well in their hands right from the word go. Both Ganguly, captain of Pune and Dravid, captain of Jaipur have registered a victory today once again just like two days back and co-incidentally, by 22 runs.

19.6 M Samuels to B Sharma, Flicked away to Steven Smith at deep square leg for one. PUNE WIN BY 22 RUNS! 144/8

19.5 M Samuels to B Sharma, FOUR! Extra runs for Mohali but to no avail. Wide outside off, drilled through covers for a boundary. 143/8

19.4 M Samuels to B Sharma, SIX! Clean as you can get! Fuller and Sharma lofts it over long on to clear the fence. 139/8

19.3 M Samuels to P Kumar, Flatter and driven through mid on for one. 133/8

19.2 M Samuels to P Kumar, Looks to work it away but the pace did him in. 132/8

19.1 M Samuels to B Sharma, DROPPED BY SAMUELS! Off his own bowling. Sharma slogged and the top edge carried towards mid-wicket. Samuels got to it but it bursts through his hands for one. 132/8

So, Pune have put up 166 thanks to the last few overs where Steven Smith and Manish Pandey went berserk. It was coming in just sixes for a while before Faulkner bowled a good last over. The platform was laid by Marlon Samuels and Robin Uthappa. Ganguly played edgy for his 20 runs. But the final flurry saw 44 runs coming in the last 3 overs, largely due to a 27-run over which was bowled by both Harmeet Singh and Bipul Sharma(as Harmeet had bowled two beamers). Join us in a while.

19.6 J Faulkner to R Sharma, Again the short one and Sharma could not get bat on that. 166/6

19.5 J Faulkner to R Sharma, Clever short one, Sharma does not get bat on that. 166/6

Rahul Sharma walks in now.

19.4 J Faulkner to S Smith, OUT! He is gone after a blitzkrieg. Full and Smith looks to scoop it, misses it to see his stumps rattled and Steven Smith is livid with himself after a 12 ball 25. 166/6

19.3 J Faulkner to M Pandey, Makes room and swats it through mid off for one. 166/5

19.2 J Faulkner to S Smith, Turns it away for one on the leg side. 165/5

19.1 J Faulkner to S Smith, SIX! Hat-trick for Smith and where was he all this while? Full toss and he delicately glances it off for a flat maximum to the fine leg fence. Phew, some hitting from the pocket-sized blonde leggie. 164/5

Sourav Ganguly and Jesse Ryder are the openers to bat for the first time in this wonderful stadium. The stage is set. Praveen Kumar to bowl.

Adam Gilchrist says he would have batted first as well. Dimitri Mascarenhas comes in for the injured Shaun Marsh.

Toss - Ganguly wins the toss and PUNE WILL BAT FIRST. Jesse Ryder and Ashish Nehra come in place of Wayne Parnell and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Pune beat the favourites Mumbai at their den and would look to continue their momentum. On the other hand, Punjab had bowled poorly in their first match and the target was too much for them to be chased. Sit tight for a fight.

Match 8 of the Indian T20 league between Pune and Punjab. It will be played for the first time at the newly erected Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium, Pune.

Praveen Kumar walks in at number 10.

18.6 A Dinda to J Faulkner, OUT! Faulkner is gone now and Ganguly takes his second catch. Fuller outside off, he looks to clear covers but fails in his elevation and Ganguly does the rest. The match is practically impossible to win for Mohali. 131/8

18.5 A Dinda to B Sharma, Length on middle, played away to mid-wicket for one. 131/7

18.4 A Dinda to B Sharma, FOUR! That was some power. An half-volley on middle, Sharma thwarted it down the ground even as the umpire had to duck as an evasive measure. 130/7

Bipul Sharma to continue for last four balls.

18.3 H Bansal to M Pandey, No-ball and Bansal is not allowed to bowl any more. Two no-balls and he is given the cap by Simon Taufel. Another high full toss, Pandey pulled it to mid-wicket where Abhishek Nayar pulled off, unfortunately, an outstanding catch. 139/5

18.3 H Bansal to M Pandey, FOUR! No-ball for height! A slow high full toss, Pandey pulls it away and finds the gap at deep square leg fence. 137/5

Manish Pandey walks in now.

18.2 H Bansal to R Uthappa, OUT! Superb bowling and that's his third wicket of slow leg-cutters. Similar to Samuels' dismissal. Lands it on middle and Uthappa is through with his slog to miss it and the middle stump is hit. 132/5

17.5 J Faulkner to S Smith, Short outside off, pulled away to square leg for one. Even after the bat is replaced, he is seen signalling for another change of bat! 127/4

17.4 J Faulkner to R Uthappa, Another full toss, goes off the outside edge to covers for one. And now Uthappa has a look at his willow! 126/4

17.3 J Faulkner to S Smith, This time drills it through mid off for one. Has some issue with his bat now and it seems to be broken at the top! 125/4

16.2 H Bansal to C Ferguson, Mix up of all sorts. Slower leg-cutter and Ferguson is rapped in front. The appeal is turned down as Uthappa had come way down. Gilchrist fails to hit the sticks at the non-striker's end. 121/3

16.1 H Bansal to C Ferguson, Wide outside off, slapped straight to extra cover. 121/3

Marlon Samuels comes back on.

Time out!

15.1 R Sharma to P Chawla, OUT! Sharma gets his second and gets his counter-part Piyush Chawla. Chawla looked to send the ball over mid-wicket off a slog. But remained a bit ineffective in doing so as Pandey catches it, running from long on. 99/6

14.1 A Nehra to P Chawla, SIX! Chawla smokes it dearly now. In the smashing zone outside off, Chawla zonked it away over the long off fence. 90/5

Callum Ferguson walks in now.

14.6 H Bansal to M Samuels, OUT! Samuels goes after a well played knock. A slower leg-cutter on middle, Samuels slogs across and misses to find his middle stump getting rattled. A crucial breakthrough for Mohali. 113/3

14.5 H Bansal to R Uthappa, Drills it through mid on for one. 113/2

14.4 H Bansal to R Uthappa, SIX! Full toss, Uthappa does not time it very well but still gives it enough momentum behind his straight-batted loft to clear long off. 112/2

14.3 H Bansal to R Uthappa, NOT OUT! Stumping appeal. Uthappa shuffles way across to work it away and misses. Gilchrist appeals and third umpire is called on. CLOSE! Replays show Uthappa's back leg was just grounding back to the crease while Gilchrist flicks it away. Not conclusive to prove that it was in the air and the Not out signal is flashed. 106/2

14.2 H Bansal to M Samuels, Drills a very full delivery down to mid on for one. 106/2

14.1 H Bansal to M Samuels, FOUR! Short and wide outside off, Samuels sends it racing away to sweeper cover who lets it go through his legs via a horrible attempt. 105/2

Dimitri Mascarenhas walks in.

13.6 R Sharma to D Hussey, OUT! Bowled him! Short and skidding on off length. It was short and Hussey was too late on his flick. Sharma is ecstatic. 84/5

13.1 R Sharma to P Chawla, On the pads and flicked away for one. 76/4

13.6 J Faulkner to R Uthappa, FOUR! Excellent cricket. Length outside off, Uthappa waits on it to guide it past short third man for a boundary to end the over. 101/2

13.5 J Faulkner to M Samuels, Smacks it straight down, but oh, it hit Uthappa and they run one though. 97/2

12.3 H Bansal to R Uthappa, On the pads, tucked down to short fine leg and they take one. Samuels was a bit late in coming in as the direct hit occured at the striker's end. Gilchrist's appeal meant for the third umpire to come in. Samuels is safe, according to replays. 89/2

12.2 H Bansal to M Samuels, Plays it to cover and does not take one. Uthappa was way down and the throw misses the stumps. Seemed like Uthappa was expecting it to miss the stumps and they take the overthrow. 88/2

7.4 B Sharma to M Samuels, Flatter and driven through mid off for one. 51/2

4.5 A Nehra to A Nayar, Huge LBW shout. Length at 141.5 kph, some pace and Nayar is trapped on his front foot. Nehra's excessive appeal earns just a loud 'No' from the umpire. Replays show it be more closer than it looked to the naked eye. 12/2

4.3 A Nehra to A Nayar, Nayar shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot. 12/2

Slip in now, in the form of Marlon Samuels.

4.2 A Nehra to M Singh, Mistimes it and it goes to mid on for one. Has to rush in and a direct throw would have done him in. Poor poor running from Mandeep Singh. Maybe the noise from the audience is too much but the batsmen can see each other right? 12/2

4.1 A Nehra to M Singh, Caught behind appeal or LBW appeal! Not sure which one. Short and it kept low as Mandeep failed to pull it. Went off the pads to Uthappa the keeper and they appeal unsuccessfully. 11/2

4.6 P Kumar to M Samuels, FOUR! Length on the pads, Samuels flicks it down to the fine leg fence. 36/2

Robin Uthappa walks in at number 4.

4.5 P Kumar to M Samuels, OUT! Outrageous running. Samuels blocks it in front of the pitch. There was no run but Ryder was already off the blocks.

4.4 P Kumar to M Samuels, Wide outside off, left alone. 32/1

4.3 P Kumar to J Ryder, Run out appeal! Ryder puts it down to short fine leg for one. The throw comes in hard and fast and Gilchrist flicks the bails off. Third umpire was called in to show Samuels was in. 32/1

4.2 P Kumar to J Ryder, Full at 116.7 kph, driven to mid off. 31/1

4.1 P Kumar to M Samuels, Pushes it in front of point for one. Ryder was nowhere near the picture as the throw does not hit the sticks at the striker's end. Poor calling that. 31/1

4.1 P Kumar to J Ryder, TWO WIDES! Down the leg sides, Ryder fails to hit and Gilchrist does not collect it. They take a bye. 30/1

Ashish Nehra in now to bowl.

3.2 M Samuels to M Singh, OUT! Another run out and this is turning out to be complete harakiri from Mohali. Mandeep flicked it straight to Smith at mid-wicket. Gilchrist was way short in reaching at the striker's end and Uthappa gets a fiery throw to knock the stumps out. 9/2

3.1 M Samuels to M Singh, Spinning in, cut to point. 9/1

Marlon Samuels walks in at number 3.

3.6 D Mascarenhas to S Ganguly, OUT! Ganguly is gone now. Has not looked at ease at all. Fuller length at 115.3 kph, outside off. Ganguly looks to loft it up and over but finds Valtathy at mid off. He is absolutely livid with himself on his way back to the pavillion. 28/1

3.5 D Mascarenhas to S Ganguly, Full on middle, Ganguly sends it into the sky. It hung around in the air for a long long time and Piyush Chawla from mid on makes a complete meal out of it as he loses it in the lights. They take two now. 28/0

3.4 D Mascarenhas to S Ganguly, Just full outside off, Ganguly sits down for a scoop and it ambles away to fine leg where Bipul Sharma dives to two. 26/0

3.3 D Mascarenhas to J Ryder, Length on off, Ryder guides it down to short third man and a direct hit would have sent Ganguly home, but it never came. 24/0

2.2 A Dinda to A Gilchrist, Short and Gilchrist gets an inside edge off his pull. 7/1

Mandeep Singh walks in at number 3.

2.1 A Dinda to P Valthaty, OUT! Comical dismissal but Mohali do not see any humour in this. A pacy skiddy delivery, Valthathy fails to get bat on that and Dinda's appeal is turned down. The ball had gone to short third man and Gilchrist was down at the other end. Steven Smith throws but no one was there at the stumps. But the batsmen were at the striker's end and Murali Kartik collected it and had all the time to whip the bails off. Some confusion as both the batsmen were at the crease, but at the time when Kartik flicked the bails off, Valtathy had come off his crease, sacrificing his wicket. 7/1

Dimitri Mascarenhas into the attack.

2.6 P Kumar to J Ryder, Tucks it away for one through the leg side. 21/0

2.5 P Kumar to S Ganguly, Ganguly is getting itchy now. Opens up for his preferred mid-wicket slog but it goes off the inside edge to square leg for one. 20/0
