6.4

Ashwin to Pandey, 1 run, tossed up, Pandey's heave finds itself short of the pitch of the ball. Ends up hitting it much squarer than intended

11.2

Ashwin to Uthappa, 1 run, swept to deep backward square for one

11.3

Ashwin to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, there is turn here, but the ball is too short, and too slow. Cut away for one

11.4

Ashwin to Uthappa, no run, sharp turn again, quick turn too, lobs off the pad towards short fine

11.5

Ashwin to Uthappa, SIX, That's one way of ensuring enough time between deliveries. Just send it into the stands and relax and take your time. Slog-swept over cow corner, way into the stands

11.6

Ashwin to Uthappa, no run, tries the paddle sweep, but the short fine leg is very fine

Pune Warriors 71/4   R Ashwin 2-0-12-0

13.1

Ashwin to Uthappa, SIX, Carrom ball. Deposited in the stands. This one is a half-tracker, and Uthappa is quick to pull this cleanly over midwicket

13.2

Ashwin to Uthappa, OUT, Another carrom ball. This time Ashwin is the one smiling. This is pitched outside leg, Uthappa goes for the shot into the leg side, the ball turns away, takes the leading edge. Caught at short third. What a bowler

RV Uthappa c Anirudha b Ashwin 31 (22b 2x4 2x6) SR: 140.90

Ashwin to Yuvraj Singh, no run, flat, quick offbreak, pitches off and middle, and turns away. Defended

13.6

Ashwin to Yuvraj Singh, no run, slower through the air, Yuvraj is way too early into the sweep and is beaten as it turns and bounces. Ashwin has a huge smile on his face. A smile of a man who knows he is bowling very well

Pune Warriors 84/5   R Ashwin 3-0-19-1

15.1

Ashwin to Marsh, 1 run, pushed down to long-on for one

15.2

Ashwin to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, lovely shot... Yuvraj was pushing forward when he saw this being bowled short. Very quickly he transferred the weight back and casually pulled it over midwicket. Lovely timing

15.3

Ashwin to Yuvraj Singh, no run, defended off the front foot

15.4

Ashwin to Yuvraj Singh, no run, Big appeal. Arm ball. Hurries onto him as Yuvraj looks to cut, but bat and pad are close together, and there seems to be a feather on it

15.5

Ashwin to Yuvraj Singh, 2 runs, worked away into the leg side, will come back for two

15.6

Ashwin to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, short and flat, pushed down the ground for one
