8 May 2012 - day/night match (20-over match)
  Pune Warriors innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal SC Ganguly* c Chavan b Tait 14 27 18 1 0 77.77
5.4 Ganguly's innings is over, another bouncer does the job, that was too quick for Ganguly to pull, the ball flies high towards square leg, Ankeet Chavan runs back to get under that one and pouch that safely, 14 off 18 today 30/1
View dismissal MJ Clarke lbw b Binny 16 31 18 1 0 88.88
6.1 Stuart Binny strikes first ball, Clarke is gone this time, he doesn't take a big stride forward as he looks to push a short of length ball to the off side, struck on the inside of his front pad, that was headed for leg, Clarke is on his way, the experiment to open with two of their slower, more experienced batsmen hasn't quite worked 35/2
View dismissal RV Uthappa c †Yagnik b Tait 13 35 19 0 0 68.42
12.6 great over from Tait ends with the reward of Uthappa's wicket, full and wide 145 kph delivery, Uthappa throws his bat at it in an attempt to blaze it through the off side, off the edge to the keeper, strike-rate below 70 this innings, where's the big-hitting finisher Pune splashed 2 million or so for? 83/4
View dismissal AP Majumdar b Botha 30 24 20 1 2 150.00
11.3 end of the entertainment from Majumdar, again he backed away from the stumps, Botha saw it and fired in a 98.4kph yorker, Majumdar can't get bat on it and that thuds into the legstump 77/3
SPD Smith not out 18 41 22 1 0 81.81
View dismissal AD Mathews run out (Shah) 11 19 12 0 0 91.66
17.1 Trivedi to Smith, Smith survives, that spent a long time in the air after he mishit it towards mid-off, neither the man from long-off nor the fielder from cover could get there in time, no matter though as Owais Shah fires in the throw to catch out Mathews, who was scrambling for the second 107/5
View dismissal M Manhas b Tait 11 9 9 1 0 122.22
19.2 Tait does what he does best, a full fast yorker, 143 kph, Manhas aimed an ambitious hit towards long-on, that ball was too good for him, it lasers into the base of off stump, Tait has 3-10 now 122/6

View dismissal R Dravid* c Clarke b Parnell 14 29 16 2 0 87.50
5.6 Dravid is completely fooled by that slower one from Parnell, he was almost through the shot before the ball arrives, he tries to check his shot, but the ball loops off the bottom of his bat towards mid-off, no need for superhuman efforts to catch this one, Clarke clasps a simple chance, there's a big delay as the umpires check whether Parnell overstepped, it's tight but the umpires are satisifed 49/2
View dismissal AM Rahane c Smith b Kumar 0 6 3 0 0 0.00
1.3 outstanding catch from Smith, just what Pune needed, an innocuous delivery outside off, Rahane cuts it slightly uppishly, hadn't counted on the flying Smith, who dives full-length to his right to pouch that inches off the ground, ridiculously good from Smith, Rahane won't be getting the orange cap today then 4/1
SR Watson not out 90 71 51 10 4 176.47
View dismissal AL Menaria c Manhas b Clarke 18 36 21 1 0 85.71
13.4 Clarke gets a wicket as he so often does, Menaria looks to hammer this over midwicket but can't get the power behind it and it is falls to the waiting Manhas, too little for Pune though, surely 105/3
