16.2 - Kyle Abbott to Smith, FOUR, excellent cricket from Smith, on a good length and well outside off, Smith went a long way across and tucks it past square leg, there's no one in the deep and it's back-to-back boundaries

7.3 - Kyle Abbott to du Plessis, FOUR, lovely shot, du Plessis nails the lap swep this time around, went down low, used Abbott's pace and helps it over the keeper for a boundary

7.2 - Kyle Abbott to du Plessis, leg byes, FOUR, that's streaky but a handy boundary for Pune, Abbott shortened his length as du Plessis set himself up for the lap sweep, the batsman was beaten by the spongy bounce, the ball hit his shoulder and rolled away past the keeper for a boundary

6.0 - Pardeep Sahu to du Plessis, FOUR, that spoils Sahu's first over, this was slower and just outside off, du Plessis came down the track and hoicked it over mid-on, one bounce and over the ropes

5.5 - Pardeep Sahu to du Plessis, FOUR, nicely done by du Plessis, this was tossed up wider outside off, du Plessis played with a closed face and drilled it back at the bowler. Sahu can't stop it, the ball burst through his legs and rolls away to the straight boundary

3.5 - Axar to du Plessis, FOUR, this is turning out to be an expensive over, du Plessis came down the track, didn't get close to the pitch, drags it up and over mid-on, one bounce and over the ropes

0.4 - Sandeep Sharma to Rahane, FOUR, nicely done by Rahane, floaty half-volley outside off, Rahane waits on it,. covers for the swing, plays with an open face and caresses it past cover-point, rolls away to the fence in a hurry

20.0 - Mohit Sharma to I Pathan, out I Pathan Run Out!! 1 run completed. Pune finish with a disappointing 152, they lost all the momentum towards the end. Another excellent delivery to round up the innings from Mohit, this was a slower yorker, well outside off as well. Pathan squeezed it in front of long-off, he was always going back for the second run. Maxwell could have thrown it at either end, he went for the striker's end with a rocket arm, Saha collects the ball and does the rest. Pathan wasn't even in the frame. I Pathan run out (Maxwell/W Saha) 2(2)

19.2 - Mohit Sharma to Dhoni, out Caught by Maxwell!! The helicopter doesn't take off and Mohit is on a hat-trick! Mohit was going for the yorker, ends up offering a low full toss, Dhoni got underneath the delivery, but doesn't get the required distance nor the height, good catch at long-on by Maxwell, PUN are pulling things back nicely. Dhoni c Maxwell b Mohit Sharma 1(2)

19.1 - Mohit Sharma to du Plessis, out Caught&Bowled!! du Plessis falls after a fine knock! He's being done in by Mohit's slower ball, backed away, got it right off the base of the bat. The ball went high and towards the on-side, Mohit called for the catch, settled himself under it and holds on - reverse cupped. du Plessis c and b Mohit Sharma 67(53) [4s-8]

17.5 - Mohit Sharma to Smith, out Caught by D Miller!! First wicket of this season's T20 League for Mohit. Excellent delivery as well, this was the back of the hand slower delivery, Smith made room outside leg, still, he didn't have the room to play the shot, ends up lifting it with an open face and straight to deep cover. Smith falls after an impressive contribution. Smith c D Miller b Mohit Sharma 38(26) [4s-5]

10.1 - Sandeep Sharma to T Perera, out Caught by Mohit Sharma!! The promotion of Thisara hasn't worked for Pune. This was a slower ball from Sandeep, angled across the left-hander, Thisara went chasing after it, gets it right off the bottom of the bat, gets plenty of height but not the distance, straightforward catch to Mohit at long-off. Pune are stuttering a bit after a strong start. T Perera c Mohit Sharma b Sandeep Sharma 8(9) [4s-1]

8.0 - Kyle Abbott to Pietersen, out Caught by Vohra!! That's a special catch and the dangerous KP departs. A nothing delivery from Abbott, full and on KP's pads, he was shuffling across on the flick, fell over slightly as he played the shot, he ended up chipping it in the air and towards mid-wicket. Vohra timed his jump to perfection, went with both hands and comes up with a beauty. The dangerous looking stand has been broken. Pietersen c Vohra b Kyle Abbott 15(15) [4s-2]

2.1 - Sandeep Sharma to Rahane, out Bowled!! That's an ugly mow from Rahane and it has cost him his wicket. Sandeep has struck early for Punjab, this was a good length delivery that held its line outside off, Rahane was looking to slog it over mid-on, doesn't get anywhere near the pitch of the ball, the thick inside edge is found and the leg-stump is knocked out of its perch. A poor way to get dismissed, especially if it's a batsman who's of the Dravid mould. Rahane b Sandeep Sharma 9(11) [4s-2]

16.5 - Kyle Abbott to Smith, 2 runs, slower bouncer from Abbott, Smith waits on it and plays a forehand smash, wide of long-on, runs hard and comes back for the second run

14.2 - Axar to du Plessis, 1 run, Axar follows du Plessis as he backed away, darts one on his pads, clipped away behind square on the on-side for a single

6.2 - Mohit Sharma to Pietersen, 1 run, 1000 runs in T20 League for KP, becomes the 50th batsman to do so, short of a good length and just outside off, driven on the up and towards mid-off, sneaks in a quick single

18.4 - T Perera to Maxwell, FOUR, That will do! PUN register their first win in T20 League 9. And fittingly Maxwell hits the winning runs. What a lovely, little cameo he's played. Finishes things off with an electrifying drive through extra cover. Nailed!

17.3 - Ashwin to Maxwell, FOUR, that hurts! And that's what Maxwell has been sent out for. To hurt oppositions with some brutal hitting. Full and drifting down leg, Maxwell swipes with a big swing of the willow and the ball sneaks past a diving backward square

17.0 - Murugan Ashwin to Maxwell, FOUR, superb stuff from Maxi! Picks this fullish flighted delivery and lifts it nonchalantly over extra over. That's skill for you...

11.1 - Murugan Ashwin to Vohra, FOUR, this will do! Rank long hop from the junior Ashwin. Short and wide, Vohra lifts it handsomely over backward point. The senior Ashwin puts in a desperate dive in the deep but fails to make a fine stop

10.3 - T Perera to Vohra, FOUR, hat-trick of boundaries for Manan Vohra! Full toss outside off, Vohra sets himself for a biggie and slaps it behind backward point, Scorched off the turf!

10.2 - T Perera to Vohra, FOUR, the slower ball outside off, sits up as a half-volley for Manan Vohra who lifts it over extra cover with his elegant wrists

10.1 - T Perera to Vohra, FOUR, that's a candyfloss from Thisara Perera. Full and slung down leg, all Vohra needed to do was to get some bat on that. Shuffles and laps it fine of fine leg

9.3 - I Pathan to Vijay, FOUR, with third man up inside the ring its a clever shot! Camps on the back foot and uses the room on offer to steer it between backward point and short third man

5.5 - Ashwin to Vijay, FOUR, loops it up on a length outside off, Vijay rocks back and executes the late-cut to perfection, piercing the gap between backward point and cover

5.0 - Ishant to Vohra, FOUR, top-stuff from Manan Vohra! Now a back foot punch to cap off the over. Advances down the track and times it to perfection, through covers. Raced away!

4.5 - Ishant to Vohra, FOUR, brilliant! Ishant Sharma pulls his length back but offers ample width to Vohra who late-cuts delicately, placing it past a diving backward point

4.4 - Ishant to Vohra, FOUR, Dhoni ain't a happy man behind the stumps. He was critcal about bowling in the first 6 overs in the last game and seems Pune bowlers aren't learning any. Pitched up and asking to be smashed. Vohra wallops it over mid-off with a fine swing of the bat

2.3 - Ishant to Vijay, FOUR, aggro stuff from Murali Vijay! Dances down the pitch and gets the desired length in his zone, swung across the line and over mid-wicket. No-one's stopping that!

1.4 - Ankit Sharma to Vijay, FOUR, this time over mid-off! Jeez! Murali Vijay is looking in good nick here. Charges down the pitch and makes room to lift the flatter delivery well over mid-off. A neat controlled stroke that!

1.3 - Ankit Sharma to Vijay, FOUR, good use of the feet from Murali Vijay! Admires the stroke too. A little shimmy and a handsome loft to a flighted delivery, as simple as that. One bounce and over the ropes at long-on

17.4 - Ashwin to Maxwell, SIX, MAXI MAXI MAXI. The crowd are going bonkers. Maxwell has just launched a generously tossed up delivery into the mid-wicket galaxy

16.5 - Murugan Ashwin to Maxwell, SIX, and the BIG SHOW is in the house! Announces his arrival and sends jitters in the oppostion dugout. Saw it hurled flat and full and went for a big whoosh over mid-wicket, a flat six and PUN are back in this

14.5 - Murugan Ashwin to Vijay, SIX, whadday way to get to your fifty. Short and sat up on the stumps, Vijay rocks back and murders the pull over mid-wicket, takes the pressure off too

3.0 - Ishant to Vijay, SIX, G-L-O-R-I-U-S. Anticipates the full delivery and skates down the track, Ishant Sharma helps him with some width and Vijay is in no mood to let that go scot-free. Thumped over extra cover with nice extension of the arms

16.2 - Murugan Ashwin to D Miller, out Caught by Pietersen!! Murugan Ashwin - You little rippa! He's turning it on for the Pune Supergiants. Credit must go to Dhoni too! Ashwin ain't afraid to toss one up on off-stump, Miller goes boom with a straight bat accompanied with lovely extension of the arms. Off the toe-end and the ball goes miles up in the air. KP settles under it and grabs sans any fuss. D Miller c Pietersen b Murugan Ashwin 7(6)

15.0 - Murugan Ashwin to Vijay, out Caught by Dhoni!! Can you believe it? He has hit a six off the previous ball and gets too greedy now. Wanted to cut a legspinner that was fired quicker than he expected. Wider of off and Vijay could only succeed in helping it into the gloves of MS. Got a faint top-edge on the shot and Dhoni showed sharp reflexes to grab that one. Vijay c Dhoni b Murugan Ashwin 53(49) [4s-5 6s-2]

14.1 - Murugan Ashwin to S Marsh, out Bowled!! And he goes TIMBAAHHHH! Bowls a flatter delivery and slows it up in the air, the key was targetting the stumps. Marsh was indecisive whether to play it on the front foot or the back foot. The ball hung in the air and came way later than Shaun Marsh expected. Tried to glide it down to third man and hears the stumps-rattling sound. S Marsh b Murugan Ashwin 4(6)

12.2 - Ankit Sharma to Vohra, out Lbw!! Finally Pune manage a wicket. But is it too late? Only time will tell. The slider on the stumps, Vohra sinks to one knee and aims for a slog-sweep. Misses the line and is struck in front of middle. Would have crashed middle and leg. Vohra lbw b Ankit Sharma 51(33) [4s-7]

18.3 - T Perera to Maxwell, 2 runs, dropped by Ishant Sharma! The slower length ball just outside off, Maxwell shuffles and goes for a pull. Gets a thick top-edge on that and deep backward square grasses it. Ishant ran forward and put in the dive but couldn't cling onto it

11.3 - Murugan Ashwin to Vohra, 1 run, Vohra pumps his fist and taps his jersey number as he reaches the landmark. First fifty for Manan Vohra in this season, gets there with a neat drive to long-on

6.0 - Ashwin to Vijay, 1 run, drives a quicker delivery towards long-on and brings up the 50-run stand
