View dismissal M Vijay c McCullum b Thomas 31 29 2 1 106.89
9.2 Finally they take a chance, do Pune! Sharp bouncer, between chest and throat, Vijay looks to pull off the front foot, but is slightly late, and the top edge lobs to midwicket 64/1
View dismissal MEK Hussey c Pandey b Taylor 61 48 6 1 127.08
17.2 Welcome back Pandey! One of his first touches on the ball this IPL! And what a catch. Hussey plays the shovel shot, but doesn't get it right off the middle, and it flies towards long-on. Pandey stations himself six inches inside the fence, and takes the overhead catch. Was always aware of the fence. Welcome back Manish. Well played Hussey too, as he doesn't hand about and takes Pandey's word on it 122/4
View dismissal SK Raina b Thomas 2 4 0 0 50.00
9.6 Cleaned up! You could sense Raina was not fancying this much. Backs away to a shortish delivery, looking for a shot through the covers, and plays completely down the wrong line. Middle and leg poles are down 66/2
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† st †Uthappa b Sharma 26 21 2 1 123.80
16.4 The luck has run out! And it is very well bowled too. Flights the next delivery after being smacked for a straight boundary. Dhoni is beaten in the flight, and the ball turns past his bat, and Uthappa is very quick with the stumping 118/3
View dismissal JA Morkel c Ryder b Taylor 0 4 0 0 0.00
17.4 Morkel, promoted ahead of specialist batsman Badri who scored 71 in his last game, is out for a four-ball duck. He throws his bat at this widish delivery without any foot movement, and gets a thick edge that settles peacefully with deep cover 123/5
S Badrinath not out 11 7 0 1 157.14

View dismissal JD Ryder b Ashwin 15 11 1 1 136.36
3.6 Wet ball? Who cares? Arm ball cleans Ryder up, and Ashwin is charged up. This one pitches just outside off, Ryder goes back and plays for the offbreak, but it hurries along with the angle and takes the middle stump 27/2
View dismissal MD Mishra b Morkel 9 9 1 0 100.00
2.4 Morkel has his man. Played on by Mishra. Short of a length, outside off, Mishra looks to run this down to third man, but the ball doesn't come on, and the slowness takes the inside edge onto the stumps 19/1
View dismissal MK Pandey b Morkel 12 9 2 0 133.33
4.5 And the stumps are out third time! Again the slowness of the track perhaps. An action replay of Mishra's dismissal. He looks to run a back-of-a-length delivery down to third man and gets an underside edge into the stumps 40/3
View dismissal RV Uthappa b Ashwin 0 4 0 0 0.00
5.3 bowled by an offspinner around his legs! Four down, all bowled! And what a delivery. Uthappa has not picked the carrom ball, and looks to paddle this. It's full, pitches leg, Uthappa is inside the line, and then turns away, hitting the stumps. Had it not turned away, Uthappa would have been safe. He can't believe the death rattle 40/4
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh* c Jakati b Morkel 34 43 2 0 79.06
18.3 Jakati flies across at extra cover! Length ball outside off, on his day Yuvraj would have hit this for a six blindfolded. This hasn't been his day, though, and he has struggled for timing bar two beautiful straight drives. And this one hits the toe end, and is going towards straightish extra cover when Jakati comes flying across and intercepts it beautifully 109/6
View dismissal M Manhas c †Dhoni b Bollinger 20 23 0 1 86.95
12.5 Gone! Looks to run this down very very fine, very very late. Too cute! Gets a regulation edge, and Dhoni makes no mistake. On the replay, I see some extra bounce too. Well done Doug 78/5
View dismissal NL McCullum c Jakati b Bollinger 15 16 0 0 93.75
19.2 Exclamation mark from an Aussie on Anzac Day. Dismissing a Kiwi. Quick, sharp bouncer, aimed at his jaw. McCullum hooks, gets a top edge that goes nowhere. Gone 114/9
View dismissal R Sharma run out (†Dhoni) 1 1 0 0 100.00
18.5 Morkel to McCullum, slower bouncer, too good for McCullum, and Dhoni underarms this as they try to steal the bye. And Sharma is short of the crease 110/7
View dismissal JE Taylor run out (sub [A Mukund]) 2 1 0 0 200.00
19.1 Bollinger to McCullum, hit to long-on, wants to come back for two, and Mukund is in action again. From long-on, he hits the stumps direct. Taylor has to go 114/8
