27 April 2011 - day/night match (20-over match)

Kulasekara to Ryder, 1 run, no swing, which is strange for Kula. Ryder works a length ball off the pads for one


Kulasekara to Mishra, no run, punched outside off, towards short cover, no swing again


Kulasekara to Mishra, 1 run, nearly played on trying to run it down, hits the back pad off the inside edge


Kulasekara to Ryder, no run, nice punch from just outside off, can't pierce the heavily populated cover ring


Kulasekara to Ryder, no run, slight inswing this time as this pitches outside leg and takes the leading edge as Ryder looks to turn this to leg


Kulasekara to Ryder, no run, back of a length, no room, Ryder plays it back to Kula

Pune Warriors 2/0   KMDN Kulasekara 1-0-2-0

Kulasekara to Ryder, 1 wide, wide down the leg side, swinging more after passing the stumps


Kulasekara to Ryder, FOUR, superb short-arm pull. Picked the length very early, stayed still in the crease, and swung it over square leg. Lands a couple of feet inside the fence


Kulasekara to Ryder, FOUR, lovely straight loft, his sole aim was to clear the infield with this - almost a chip. And the timing is so good it almost carries on for a six


Kulasekara to Ryder, FOUR, Make it three for Jesse. Makes room this time to counter the angle, and goes inside-out over extra cover. Each shot better than the previous one


Kulasekara to Ryder, 1 run, ahhh... looks to pull this from way outside off, the ball takes the toe end, and goes towards long-off


Kulasekara to Mishra, no run, looks to drive through the covers, gets too close to it, and ends up hitting right back into the pitch


Kulasekara to Mishra, no run, full toss hit straight to straightish midwicket

Pune Warriors 22/0   KMDN Kulasekara 2-0-16-0

Kulasekara to Pandey, 1 run, starts with an inswinger, which is steered away from in front of middle stump


Kulasekara to Manhas, OUT, Has he bowled him? Yes he has. They are busy running runs, but he has been bowled here. One of Kula's famous big inswingers that finds a way between his bat and pad, and kisses the leg bail on the way. Nobody notices this. Dhoni fumbles, and goes back to field the ball. The batsmen are running... and Kula notices the leg bail has been dislodged. And then he politely appeals. Three down

M Manhas b Kulasekara 0 (4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00


Kulasekara to Yuvraj Singh, 2 runs, ... and nearly out goes Yuvraj Singh! The inswinger again. Yuvraj drives at this, but the movement takes a thick outside edge that just about manages to elude backward point


Kulasekara to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, Majestic shot! Stands tall, plants the front foot down, and drives away from the body, on the up, between cover and extra cover


Kulasekara to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, shuffles across to cover the movement, Kula bowls on the pads, and is flicked away for one


Kulasekara to Pandey, 2 runs, misses out on this inswinger on the pads with short fine up in the circle. Cannot beat that fielder, and gets just the couple

Pune Warriors 37/3   KMDN Kulasekara 3-0-26-1
