Pune Warriors 53/5   M Kartik 1* (2b)

Malinga to Kartik, no run, whoa, yorker at 144 kph and Kartik wisely hides the toes from the missile by getting the bat in the way. Nearly run out, as he digs it out and thinks of a single. Malinga collects and under-arms but no harm done.


Malinga to Kartik, no run, not so straight this time, Kartik opens the face and steers towards point


Malinga to Kartik, 1 run, Malinga bounces him at 140 kph, Kartik is a year late on the pull as he recovers from his hide-the-toes strategy and pulls feebly through midwicket.

Pune Warriors 56/5   M Kartik 2* (5b)

Ahmed to Kartik, 1 run, Width outside off, Kartik cuts well but finds deep point.


Ahmed to Kartik, FOUR, Nechim finds an extra yard now and again, much like Ajit Agarkar it takes the batsman by surprise. Kartik was late on the bouncer and ended up top-edging over the keeper's head


Ahmed to Kartik, 1 run, back of a length, slower ball, Kartik picks it late and guides it to midwicket

Pune Warriors 67/5   M Kartik 8* (8b 1x4)

Franklin to Kartik, (no ball) 1 run, oh boy. Franklin gets away with this one, but oversteps again. This time, Uthappa will face. Length ball outside off, Kartik heaves to deep cover for one.


Franklin to Kartik, no run, heave ho, outside off, and a miss. Kartik looks to whack a short, wide ball without moving the feet, and misses.


Franklin to Kartik, 1 run, back of a length outside off, Kartik stays on the crease and guides into the covers for a single.

Pune Warriors 78/5   M Kartik 10* (11b 1x4)

Malinga to Kartik, 1 run, Third umpire will look at this run out appeal. Slower ball from Malinga, full and on middle, Kartik makes room and steers to Pollard at point. He played it off the back foot and did not really hare across. He wasn't at full stretch when the ball came through to hit the stumps, but still made it.


Malinga to Kartik, OUT, Kartik's played the poorest shot of the day. He's chipped a full ball from Malinga straight to Symonds, a few metres inside the circle at mid-on. It was full, and might have come off slower than he thought. Kartik stays back and looks to tap it over the infield. Mistake. Pune are in a soup. Malinga-tawny soup.

M Kartik c Symonds b Malinga 11 (13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 84.61

Pune Warriors 87/6   M Kartik 11 (13b 1x4)
