Indian Premier League - 62nd match

Pune Warriors v Deccan Chargers

Deccan Chargers won by 6 wickets (with 4 balls remaining)

5.1

Christian to Ganguly, no run, Dan Christian is on, starts off with a length ball, pushed into the covers

5.2

Christian to Ganguly, no run, gets this one to go away from Dada, who makes some room and tries to cut, but he has made too much room and cant get to it

5.3

Christian to Ganguly, no run, length ball, tapped down into the off side, thoughts of a run, but they don't want it

5.4

Christian to Ganguly, no run, good start for Christian, length ball again and defended into the off side, four dots now

5.5

Christian to Ganguly, OUT, and would you look at that. Shorter ball, Ganguly plays a limp shot, in the air, half-hearted drive and it's straight to Ojha in the covers. Simple as you like and taken comfortably.

SC Ganguly c Ojha b Christian 0 (5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

5.6

Christian to Uthappa, FOUR, bit too much width outside off, that didn't require too mcuh work to steer into the gap to the third man boundary. Successful over for Christian none the less

Pune Warriors 39/2   DT Christian 1-0-4-1

12.1

Christian to Marsh, 2 runs, nicely timed through mid-wicket, flicked in that region for a couple

12.2

Christian to Marsh, no run, defended on the back foot, back to Christian. Prudhvi makes this observation, "No extras yet.. very commendable.."

12.3

Christian to Marsh, no run, defended back to Christian

12.4

Christian to Marsh, no run, touch shorter and defended again, decent from Christian

12.5

Christian to Marsh, no run, still bowling it back of a length and its working, Driven uppishly into the covers, limp shots here and no scoring opportunities really

12.6

Christian to Marsh, no run, defended back to Christian, good comeback from him

Pune Warriors 80/6   DT Christian 2-0-6-1

14.1

Christian to Marsh, no run, driven off the back foot to mid-off, hit too quickly and there's no run there

14.2

Christian to Marsh, SIX, short and picked up very well by Mitchell Marsh. He hoicked that over mid-wicket, high and mighty. Classic bludgeon, if such a thing exists

14.3

Christian to Marsh, 1 run, driven to mid off this time

14.4

Christian to Yuvraj Singh, no run, pushed into the covers, something else bothering Yuvi now, he wants a new bat

14.5

Christian to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, maybe he needed a new bat. Christian banged it in short, Yuvi went on a wild pull and got a thick nick through to Sanga who celebrated with great glee. Dangerous Yuvi is gone but we know Pune bat deep

Yuvraj Singh c †Sangakkara b Christian 23 (17b 3x4 1x6) SR: 135.29

14.6

Christian to Parnell, no run, back of a length and Parnell nudges it to point, he has a big role to play today

Pune Warriors 92/7   DT Christian 3-0-13-2
