Cameron White scored a quickfire half century to help Deccan Chargers (DC) register their first win in the tournament, beating Pune Warriors India (PWI) by 18 runs in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match at Pune on Thursday.

 

Owing to the win, Pune Warriors have now gained three points in the Points Table but remain at the final position.

 

White smashed a stroke-ful 78 off just 46 balls and together with JP Duminy (26 not out) added crucial 75 runs for the fifth wicket to power Deccan to 177 for four after electing to bat.

 

And then Deccan bowlers rose to the occasion for the first time in IPL season five as Pune lost wickets at regular intervals to be restricted to 159 for seven at the Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium.

 

Debutant Ashish Reddy (2 for 32) and Rusty Theron (2 for 37) starred with the ball for Deccan, picking up two wickets apiece.

 

The victory is Deccan first win in this year's IPL after five straight loses and a wash out game.
