Pune: Apr 30, 2013

Pune Warriors continue to remain at the bottom of the points table after their 37-run loss to the Super Kings. They started off well, restricting CSK to 29 for two after first six overs, but Super Kings bounced back and proved too strong for them.

PWI 127/9 | Overs 20 | Bhuvneshwar 24*, Dinda 2* OUT! Rahul 0(1)

All over for the Warriors. A hapless display with the bat once again sumps up their poor run in the tournament as they lose yet another game. Chennai win by 37 runs.

PWI 121/8 | Overs 19 | Bhuvneshwar 20*, Rahul 0* OUT! Richardson 26(20)

Kane Richardson falls after 20-ball 26. The right-hander goes for a big hit, the ball takes top edge and Raina takes a simple catch.

PWI 114/7 | Overs 18 | Bhuvneshwar 16*, Richardson 23*

Pune manage four runs off the last three balls after Bravo bowls four dots. Pune need a further 51 runs from 12 balls.

PWI 110/7 | Overs 17 | Bhuvneshwar 13*, Richardson 22*

Bhuvneshwar Kumar cracks a six and a boundary off Ravindra Jadeja as Pune add 14 runs to their total.

PWI 96/7 | Overs 16 | Bhuvneshwar 2*, Richardson 19*

Sixteeen overs are completed but Pune Warriors India are yet to cross the 100-run mark. It’s been a poor show by the side which is ranked at the bottom of the points table. Only three runs come off Bravo’s second over.

PWI 93/7 | Overs 15 | Bhuvneshwar 1*, Richardson 18* OUT! Smith 35(39)

Soft dismissal for Steven Smith as he gives a simple return catch to Ravindra Jadeja. With this, Pune’s hopes are all but over as their last recognised batsman is back in the hut.

PWI 93/6 | Overs 14 | Smith 35*, Richardson 18*

Kane Richardson strikes it down the ground for a boundary on the fourth ball off Ravichandran Ashwin and follows it up with a good clean hit over the mid-wicket for a six. Pune need a further 73 runs from 36 balls.

PWI 79/6 | Overs 13 | Smith 32*, Richardson 8*

Only five runs taken from Dwayne Bravo’s first over of the game.

PWI 74/6 | Overs 12 | Smith 28*, Richardson 7*

Ravindra Jadeja’s second over of the game gets only two runs to the Pune Warriors India. The asking rate is going up fast!

PWI 72/6 | Overs 11 | Smith 27*, Richardson 6*

Only four singles taken from Albie Morkel’s third over of the match. Pune have a tough task as they need 93 runs from 54 balls

PWI 68/6 | Overs 10 | Smith 25*, Richardson 2* OUT! Nayar 2(4)

Apart from the issues that they need to, one among them would be running between the wickets to be addressed for the Pune Warriors India. Abhishek Nayar responds late to Steven Smith’s call for a single and is run-out, which could have been avoided. Pune are slipping fast.

PWI 61/5 | Overs 9 | Smith 22*, Nayar 2*  

Steven Smith and Abhishek Nayar scamper for five runs as Pune add six more runs to their total.

PWI 55/5 | Overs 8 | Smith 18*, Nayar 0*  OUT! Wright 2(6)

Unlucky for Luke Wright as he is run-out in a bizarre manner. Smith plays it straight off Albie Morkel, whose boot hits the ball and it goes on to hit the stumps. Wright was backing up too far and has to go back.

PWI 50/4 | Overs 7 | Smith 13*, Wright 2* 

Mohit Sharma keeps it quite as Pune batsmen could manage only three runs off the seventh over.

PWI 47/4 | Overs 6 | Smith 11*, Wright 1* 

Only three runs off Chris Morris’s second over of the game as Pune are getting into tremendous pressure.

PWI 43/4 | Overs 5 | Smith 9*, Wright 0* OUT! Yuvraj 5(4)

Pune Warriors India are crumbling apart fast! Mohit Mahipal Sharma drops it short on the first ball as Yuvraj Singh pulls it for four, but he nicks the fifth ball as Dhoni takes a simple catch.

PWI 37/3 | Overs 4 | Smith 8*, Yuvraj 0* OUT! Uthappa 10(11)

Uthappa is run-out! The Pune opener pushes towards the off side and starts for a run. Yuvraj Singh shouts no as Suresh Raina was charging in. Raina collects the ball and throws it on the stumps. Uthappa was far, far away. New man in, Steven Smith, starts off with two good hits for boundaries.

PWI 26/2 | Overs 3 | Uthappa 9* OUT! Finch 15(9) and Suman 0(1)

Double breakthroughs! Finch gets a boundary off the third ball off Mohit Sharma towards the third-man area. The fielder at point gets his hands to it but not enough to cut the pace as the ball races away to the fence. But two balls later, Mohit gets his revenge as he gets Finch caught behind the wickets by MS Dhoni. Another breakthrough as Tirumalsetti Suman is trapped in front of the wickets on the last ball for a duck.

PWI 21/0 | Overs 2 | Uthappa 8*, Finch 11*

Finch smashes a six off the last ball off Albie Morkel as Pune take 12 runs from that over. A misfield by Suresh Raina at the extra cover point gifts Pune skipper a boundary on the third ball.

PWI 9/0 | Overs 1 | Uthappa 7*, Finch 1*

Robin Uthappa lofts over the cover region for six and Pune start on a good note, getting nine runs in the first over off Ravindra Jadeja. There were a few hiccups while running between the wickets, but both Uthappa and Finch are safe.

Chennai Super Kings bounced back in a remarkable manner after a slow start to post a huge total against the struggling Pune Warriors. Raina remained till the end and provided MS Dhoni an ideal platform to play his shots. Dhoni slammed three sixes and four boundaries to score 45 frrom just 16 balls. Stay tuned for Pune’s chase…

CSK 164/3 | Overs 20 | Raina 63*, Dhoni 45*

Mahendra Singh Dhoni signs off with a huge six as Chennai have put up a strong total against the lowly Pune Warriors. Dhoni races to 16-ball 45 while Raina remains beaten on 63.

CSK 150/3 | Overs 19 | Raina 62*, Dhoni 32*

MS Dhoni slams over the point region for a boundary off Bhuvneshwar Kumar as Chennai add another 12 runs to their total and go past the 150-run mark.

CSK 138/3 | Overs 18 | Raina 56*, Dhoni 26*

Raina cracks a boundary off the first ball, as MS Dhoni follows it up with a reverse sweep off Ashok Dinda. The Chennai and India captain then dances down the track to smack a six over the long-on fielder. Dhoni has raced to 26 off just eight balls.

CSK 121/3 | Overs 17 | Raina 51*, Dhoni 14*

Suresh Raina takes a single off Kane Richardson’s third ball to not only complete his half-century, but also to complete 2,500 runs in the Indian Premier League tournament. He’s the first batsman to achieve the milestone. Well, this is some record! CSK add seven runs to their total.

CSK 114/3 | Overs 16 | Raina 49*, Dhoni 10* OUT! Badrinath 34(31)

Badrinath falls after a solid stand in a bid to up the scoring rate. The Chennai batsman tries to hit over the long-off fielder but is caught by Steven Smith for 34. Badri faced 31 balls during his innings with the help of two boundaries. Luke Wright takes his first wicket in the game. MS Dhoni walks in and smacks a boundary and a six over the long-off boundary to start off.

CSK 102/2 | Overs 15 | Raina 47*, Badrinath 34*

Nine runs come off the 15th over as Chennai go past the 100-run mark.

CSK 93/2 | Overs 14 | Raina 42*, Badrinath 32*

Suresh Raina slams first six of the innings with a lofted shot over the midwicket area off Kane Richardson. Chennai are pushing up the scoring rate as another 12 runs garnered from that over.

CSK 81/2 | Overs 13 | Raina 32*, Badrinath 30*

Badrinath hits consecutive boundaries off Rahul Sharma to mark a good over for the Super Kings as 13 runs come off it.

CSK 68/2 | Overs 12 | Raina 30*, Badrinath 19*

Raina and Badrinath are leading Chennai’s recovery, not with a counter attack but with the steady partnership which has extended to 40 runs from 6.2 overs.

CSK 61/2 | Overs 11 | Raina 26*, Badrinath 16*

Chennai batsmen rotate the strike well as another six runs are added to their total.

CSK 55/2 | Overs 10 | Raina 23*, Badrinath 13*

Raina hits a fluent cover drive off the final ball mark a good over for the Super Kings, as nine runs are scored off Bhuvneshwar’s third over of the game.

CSK 46/2 | Overs 9 | Raina 17*, Badrinath 10*

Luke Wright fails to judge the trajectory of the ball standing at the short midwicket position, as an attempted pull shot by Suresh Raina falls short of him.  Chennai add five more runs to their total.

CSK 41/2 | Overs 8 | Raina 15*, Badrinath 7*

Suresh Raina hits over the fielder at point to collect a boundary as Chennai add seven runs to their total in the eighth over of the innings off Abhishek Nayar.

CSK 34/2 | Overs 7 | Raina 10*, Badrinath 5*

Impressive by Ashok Dinda as Chennai batsmen manage only five runs in his first over of the game.

CSK 29/2 | Overs 6 | Raina 9*, Badrinath 1* OUT! Saha 13(15)

Rahul Sharma traps Wriddhiman Saha in front of the wickets as Chennai lose their second wicket. Slow start for the Super Kings as only 29 runs have come in that over.

CSK 26/1 | Overs 5 | Raina 8*, Saha 12* 

Wriddhiman Saha gets in to the hitting mode and lofts Kane Richardson for a six straight down the ground, and follows it up with a boundary. This was after Suresh Raina cracked a boundary off the first ball.

CSK 10/1 | Overs 4 | Raina 3*, Saha 1* 

Bhuvneshwar Kumar continues the good work as his second over yields only three runs. The Super Kings have made a slow start.

CSK 7/1 | Overs 3 | Raina 1*, Saha 0* OUT! M Hussey 5(8)

Big wicket! Australian young pacer Kane Richardson comes around the wicket and knocks down Michael Hussey’s off-stump. This is a big breakthrough. Richardson nearly dismisses Suresh Raina as a leading edge drops just short of the mid-on fielder.

CSK 6/0 | Overs 2 | M Hussey 5*, Saha 0*

Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been playing a different game all together this IPL 2013, something which is not very usual from a seamer in the T20 format. He starts with a maiden against CSK.

CSK 6/0 | Overs 1 | M Hussey 5*, Saha 0*

Michael Hussey starts off with a boundary in the first over off Rahul Sharma.

Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat against the Pune Warriors India in the 42nd match of the IPL 2013.
