Commentary (Rajasthan Royals innings)

Shane Watson is named the Man of the Match. Switch over to the other tab to catch all the action from the match between Mohali and Hyderabad. Stay tuned.

Out of 126 runs to be chased, Shane Watson has scored 90 off just 51 runs, that just shows what sort of an extra deep boost that this Australian carries around with him for the team. Pune were down and out from the onset, inspite of Rahane's breakthrough early on. The way Pune batted, it seemed a slow wicket, but Watson ridiculed all such thoughts with an outstanding display with the bat.

16.2 S Smith to S Watson, FOUR! JAIPUR WIN BY 7 WICKETS! It's Watson the man. Short delivery at 85.8 kph, he thumped it flat towards long on. Kartik tries to stop but the ball goes past him to reach the fence. 126/3

5.6 W Parnell to R Dravid, OUT! Dravid is the man to fall to a soft dismissal. Both the openers are out now. Length delivery outside off, a slower one at 126.3 kph, Dravid just checks his shot and it balloons in the air. Clarke cannot get a more easy catch at extra cover. The umpire checks upstairs for no-ball. Parnell's foot was just on the crease, but a tiny part was inside the popping crease. Third umpire takes a lot of time before giving his decision. 49/2

4.5 A Nehra to S Watson, FOUR! Just poor bowling from Nehra. Short and down the leg side at 136.1 kph, Watson just pulls well past short fine leg with enough power. 39/1

4.4 A Nehra to R Dravid, Punches it through mid on to take a run. 35/1

4.3 A Nehra to R Dravid, FOUR! Well done by Dravid. On the pads at 133.5 kph, he flicks it well off the pads. Murali Kartik runs around at fine leg, but the ball goes off his arms and over the ropes. 34/1

4.2 A Nehra to S Watson, On middle and leg, flicked away for a single. 30/1

3.1 B Kumar to R Dravid, Just guides it down to third man for one. 22/1

2.6 M Kartik to S Watson, SIX! How on earth did he pull this off? This is pure magical fielding from Steven Smith. Fuller length, Watson just smacks it down to the long on ropes. Steven Smith at the ropes, takes the catch, then loses the balance over the ropes, throws the ball in the air. Now, he goes over the ropes, pops up the ball in the air but ahead of the ropes aerially, then takes the catch well inside the ropes. The umpire reckons it cannot be given out. Maybe because he was clearly outside the ropes. 21/1

2.5 M Kartik to S Watson, Goes on the back foot and punches it away towards cover. 15/1

2.4 M Kartik to S Watson, FOUR! Short in length, Watson just goes back and cuts it wide off point. Ten off the over so far. 15/1

2.2 M Kartik to S Watson, SIX! That's Watson's pure power. Marginally short at 84.3 kph, Watson camps back and pulls it wide off mid-wicket with power. 11/1

2.1 M Kartik to S Watson, Short and going on straight, cut away to cover-point. 5/1

Murali Kartik to bowl now.

1.6 B Kumar to R Dravid, Good length delivery at 134.6 kph, Dravid undercuts it back down the ground. Superb over. One run and a wicket off it. 5/1

1.5 B Kumar to R Dravid, Past the outside edge! Length and seaming away just a hint, Dravid drives but the ball goes past his blade. 5/1

1.4 B Kumar to S Watson, Fuller length, invites Watson to drive who gets an inside edge towards square leg for one. 5/1

Shane Watson walks in at number 3.

1.3 B Kumar to A Rahane, OUT! Smith takes a blinder here! The kind of effort Pune need to pull themselves up. Just a bit of width outside off at 132.3 kph, Rahane pushes it slowly towards point, Steven Smith dives full to his right and takes it inches off the turf. Splendid. He not only had to dive sideways, but also a touch forward as the ball was dying down. 4/1

1.2 B Kumar to A Rahane, Keeps it on length outside off, punched off the back foot to cover. 4/0

1.1 B Kumar to A Rahane, Length delivery, Rahane punches it to the man on the off side. 4/0

0.5 W Parnell to R Dravid, Length down the leg side, Dravid fails to flick and it comes off the pads. 4/0

0.1 W Parnell to R Dravid, Darts in down the leg side, Dravid flicks and it lobs down. Parnell attempts an unsuccessful shy at the stumps with his foot. 0/0

Commentary (Pune Warriors India innings)

Pune had Ganguly and Clarke up the order, but the plan never worked. None apart from the debutant Majumdar and Manhas, none of the batsmen could cross even 100 on the strike rate meter. Tait bowled an astonishing spell of 4-14(dot balls)-13-3. He was well supported by Stuart Binny as well. Jaipur would pat themselves on the back but this wicket is quite unpredictable.

19.6 S Tait to W Parnell, Low full toss, Parnell gets it away towards square leg for one. 125/6

19.5 S Tait to S Smith, Full outside off, Smith can only scoop it towards square leg for one. 124/6

19.4 S Tait to S Smith, That's a fast high full toss. Smith makes his move across but fails to flick it. Replays confirm that it was a good decision to have not given that a no-ball. 123/6

19.3 S Tait to W Parnell, In the air and safe! Bangs in short, Parnell pulls but the ball skies into the air. Tait runs towards square leg, does not attempt the dive and it remains down. One run. 123/6

Wayne Parnell walks in to bat at number 8.

19.2 S Tait to M Manhas, OUT! That's a typical pacy yorker. On the off stump blockhole at 142.4 kph, Manhas aims to heave it away but the ball sneaks in to take the off stump out of the ground. 122/6

19.1 S Tait to M Manhas, Full, just outside off, Manhas gets across to scoop and misses out. 122/5

Shaun Tait to bowl the final over.

18.6 S Watson to M Manhas, A yorker, dug out well down the ground for one to end the over. 122/5

18.4 S Watson to M Manhas, Full on off at 138.5 kph, heaved away through mid-wicket for one. 120/5

18.3 S Watson to M Manhas, FOUR! A freebie there. Short outside off at 114 kph, the slower one, Manhas has enough time to free his arms through point. 119/5

18.2 S Watson to S Smith, Good length delivery outside off, Smith pulls it off the inside edge to square leg for one. 115/5

18.1 S Watson to M Manhas, Fuller length, 134.6 kph, drilled down the ground to long off to take a single. 114/5

17.6 S Trivedi to M Manhas, Fuller length down the leg side, flicked away through square leg to take a run. 113/5

17.5 S Trivedi to M Manhas, This was good running. Just pushes it past the bowler. Smith was the one coming at the danger end and made it easily for two. 112/5

17.4 S Trivedi to S Smith, Fuller length, driven through mid off for a single. 110/5

17.3 S Trivedi to M Manhas, Short and skids through. Manhas pulls and misses, seems to be two noises, and maybe that's why the LBW shout was turned down. They take the run through point. 109/5

17.2 S Trivedi to S Smith, Length on the pads, flicked away through mid-wicket. 108/5

Mithun Manhas walks in.

17.1 S Trivedi to S Smith, OUT! That's a mix up. Short in length, Smith goes across to heave but only manages to top edge down the ground. They come back for he second, but Owais Shah running back from mid off, hits bull's eye at the non-striker's end. Mathews is way short. 107/5

Shane Watson is named the Man of the Match. Switch over to the other tab to catch all the action from the match between Mohali and Hyderabad. Stay tuned.

Out of 126 runs to be chased, Shane Watson has scored 90 off just 51 runs, that just shows what sort of an extra deep boost that this Australian carries around with him for the team.

16.2 S Watson to A Mathews, Darts in on a fullish length once again, flicked away through mid-wicket to get one. 102/4

16.1 S Watson to A Mathews, Fuller length at 130.7 kph, heaved away off the inside part through mid-wicket for a couple. 101/4

Ankeet Chavan to bowl first up, the left-arm spinner for Jaipur.

Sourav Ganguly and Michael Clarke will open the batting for Pune. So, Ganguly is back to the top, where he usually performs the best.

TOSS - Sourav Ganguly wins the toss and PUNE WILL BAT FIRST, which has been the case by all the teams, winning the toss in this stadium. Rahul Dravid reckons he would have batted first as well. Pune have two changes. The injured Ashok Dinda is replaced by Ashish Nehra. Anustup Majumdar will get his first game in the Indian T20 league, in place of Manish Pandey. Jaipur have just one change. Brad Hodge sits out due to an injury and Owais Shah comes in his place.

After a disappointing end to Ganguly's home visit at the Eden Gardens, Pune now take on Jaipur at the Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium. Before their previous matches, both the teams were on a four match losing streak, but Jaipur toppled Mohali while Kolkata beat Pune. So Pune are now on an unwanted five-match losing trot and they would be hoping to put the final brakes on that.

The leggie Steven Smith will bowl for the first time now in this season.

11.6 J Botha to R Uthappa, LBW appeal. Uthappa attempts to reverse sweep a full delivery outside off. He misses to get hit on the pads. For some reason, the keeper and Botha both go up in a huge appeal. The umpire is not interested at all as the batsmen take the leg bye. 79/3

Steven Smith walks in at number 5.

11.3 J Botha to A Majumdar, OUT! Botha, with ample of experience shows his skill here. A faster yorker on leg stump, Majumdar is a little late in getting his bat down and the leg stump is uprooted. 77/3

11.2 J Botha to A Majumdar, FOUR! That's a magnificent stroke. Majumdar seems confident against the spinners. Once again with some good footwork, lofts it cleanly over covers for a boundary. 77/2

11.1 J Botha to R Uthappa, This time Uthappa gives the charge, it goes off the top edge over covers for one. 73/2

10.5 A Chavan to A Majumdar, Gets it away through mid-wicket and does well to come back for two. 66/2

6.5 A Nehra to A Menaria, Bouncer, this time Menaria ducks under it. 54/2

6.4 A Nehra to A Menaria, FOUR! Well placed but that was quite close to the keeper. Good length outside off at 132.8 kph, Menaria just opens the face at the very last minute and guides it past Uthappa. He aimed quite squarer but it went finer than he wanted. 54/2

6.2 S Binny to A Majumdar, Fuller length, Majumdar comes down and blocks it. 35/2

Anustup Majumdar walks in. His debut.

6.1 S Binny to M Clarke, OUT! LBW! Clarke departs now. Length delivery, goes on straight as Clarke misses his flick. The umpire has no problem in raising his finger. Replays show the impact to be middle and leg but Pune are two openers down and that's what matters. 35/2

Ashok Menaria walks in at number 4.

5.6 W Parnell to R Dravid, OUT! Dravid is the man to fall to a soft dismissal. Both the openers are out now. Length delivery outside off, a slower one at 126.3 kph, Dravid just checks his shot and it balloons in the air. Clarke cannot get a more easy catch at extra cover. The umpire checks upstairs for no-ball. Parnell's foot was just on the crease, but a tiny part was inside the popping crease. Third umpire takes a lot of time before giving his decision. 49/2

5.5 S Tait to M Clarke, FIVE RUNS! That's lucky for Clarke. Fuller length, Clarke drives but it goes off an inside edge to Watson at short fine leg. He takes aim at the non-striker's end but it hits Clarke's bat right at the face and races down to the ropes. Clarke raises his hand as a sign of apology, but has a yappy grin nevertheless. 35/1

Robin Uthappa walks in at number 3.

5.4 S Tait to S Ganguly, OUT! Ganguly is gone now. He was living it dangerously out there. Another bouncer darted in at 144.2 kph, this time Ganguly sees the ball and pulls, but still only manages a top edge. The ball goes swirling down towards the end of the circle at square leg, but Ankeet Chavan does well to go back and take a good catch. The umpire checks upstairs for no-ball, Tait's foot was just on the line, but some part was inside the crease. Dada has to depart now. 30/1

5.3 S Tait to M Clarke, Short of a length at 148.1 kph, Clarke looks to whip it but the ball zips through to go off his thigh pad down towards square leg. They take the leg bye. 30/0

4.4 A Nehra to R Dravid, Punches it through mid on to take a run. 35/1

4.3 A Nehra to R Dravid, FOUR! Well done by Dravid. On the pads at 133.5 kph, he flicks it well off the pads. Murali Kartik runs around at fine leg, but the ball goes off his arms and over the ropes. 34/1

4.2 A Nehra to S Watson, On middle and leg, flicked away for a single. 30/1

4.1 A Nehra to S Watson, Watson has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. 29/1

Shaun Tait to bowl now.

4.1 S Watson to M Clarke, Low full toss on off at 139.3 kph, Clarke can only manage to flick it straight to mid-wicket. 22/0

3.5 B Kumar to R Dravid, On the pads, flicked away for a couple. 29/1

3.4 B Kumar to S Watson, Short in length, chopped down to third man for a single. 27/1

3.3 B Kumar to S Watson, FOUR! Excellent timing. Fuller on off, Watson just lofts it cleanly over mid on to get a boundary to his name. 26/1

3.2 B Kumar to S Watson, On the pads, flicked away to the man at square. 22/1

3.1 B Kumar to R Dravid, Just guides it down to third man for one. 22/1

3.6 J Botha to S Ganguly, A touch short, Ganguly this time cuts it straight to point to end the over. 22/0

3.5 J Botha to S Ganguly, Another shout for LBW! Faster delivery, Ganguly comes across to sweep and misses. It hits him marginally on the off stump line. The umpire does not acknowledge Botha's appeal though. 22/0

3.1 J Botha to M Clarke, Flatter length, 89 kph, Clarke dabs it towards cover off the outside edge. 15/0

2.6 M Kartik to S Watson, SIX! How on earth did he pull this off? This is pure magical fielding from Steven Smith. Fuller length, Watson just smacks it down to the long on ropes. Steven Smith at the ropes, takes the catch, then loses the balance over the ropes, throws the ball in the air. Now, he goes over the ropes, pops up the ball in the air but ahead of the ropes aerially, then takes the catch well inside the ropes. The umpire reckons it cannot be given out. Maybe because he was clearly outside the ropes. 21/1

2.5 M Kartik to S Watson, Goes on the back foot and punches it away towards cover. 15/1

2.4 M Kartik to S Watson, FOUR! Short in length, Watson just goes back and cuts it wide off point. Ten off the over so far. 15/1

1.5 B Kumar to R Dravid, Past the outside edge! Length and seaming away just a hint, Dravid drives but the ball goes past his blade. 5/1

1.4 B Kumar to S Watson, Fuller length, invites Watson to drive who gets an inside edge towards square leg for one. 5/1

Shane Watson walks in at number 3.

1.3 B Kumar to A Rahane, OUT! Smith takes a blinder here! The kind of effort Pune need to pull themselves up. Just a bit of width outside off at 132.3 kph, Rahane pushes it slowly towards point, Steven Smith dives full to his right and takes it inches off the turf. Splendid. He not only had to dive sideways, but also a touch forward as the ball was dying down. 4/1

1.2 B Kumar to A Rahane, Keeps it on length outside off, punched off the back foot to cover. 4/0

1.1 B Kumar to A Rahane, Length delivery, Rahane punches it to the man on the off side. 4/0

1.5 S Tait to M Clarke, Over-pitched outside off at 147.2 kph, Clarke drives it straight back to Tait. 7/0

1.4 S Tait to M Clarke, Nice line this. Just a bit of away-swing on that fuller length delivery, Clarke makes sure to keep his body back and just blocks it down. 7/0

Bhuvneshwar Kumar to bowl from the other end.

0.6 A Chavan to S Ganguly, Fuller outside off, Ganguly pushes it through covers and keeps strike for the next over. 6/0

0.5 A Chavan to M Clarke, Clipped away through mid-wicket for one. 5/0

0.4 A Chavan to S Ganguly, LBW SHOUT! A good one that. Fuller length darted in, Ganguly sweeps and it strikes him fairly on the pads and it goes away towards square leg. Replays show it was pitching just on leg. Phew, Ganguly has survived a close call. 4/0

0.4 A Chavan to S Ganguly, WIDE! Bowls full and down the leg side, Ganguly sweeps but misses. 3/0

0.3 A Chavan to S Ganguly, Chips down the track and flicks it away to mid-wicket. 2/0
