Indian Premier League, 3rd match: Mumbai Indians v Pune Warriors at Mumbai, Apr 6, 2012
Pune Warriors won by 28 runs
6 April 2012 - day/night match (20-over match)

Malinga to Pandey, OUT, Bowled him! Slower one and it looked like the four dot balls seemed to have worked on the batsman's mind. He went for a forceful shot over the leg-side but he missed it completely and Malinga's delivery sneaked through the defences!

MK Pandey b Malinga 0 (3m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pune Warriors 0/1   SC Ganguly 0* (0b)   SL Malinga 0.5-0-0-1

Harbhajan Singh to Ganguly, OUT, gone, gone! Ganguly is a goner, trying to go down the track after he had done that in Harbhajan's last over as well but he misses it completely and Dinesh Karthik does the rest.

SC Ganguly st †Karthik b Harbhajan Singh 3 (16m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Pune Warriors 15/2   WD Parnell 6* (11b 1x4)   Harbhajan Singh 1.4-0-7-1

Patel to Parnell, OUT, Bowled him! Munaf Patel has a wicket in his first over of this season! Parnell tried to go for an expansive drive and the ball was nowhere close to that length. It took a bit of an inside edge to go with some seam movement inside and the bails were dislodged.

WD Parnell b Patel 11 (19m 14b 2x4 0x6) SR: 78.57

Pune Warriors 27/3   RV Uthappa 7* (4b 1x4)   MM Patel 0.5-0-7-1

Pollard to Ferguson, OUT, gone this time! run-out! Harbhajan may have dropped the catch off the previous ball but this is super stuff from the Mumbai Indians. The batsman drove into the covers and went off for a single, Rohit Sharma was at the edge of the circle and he took an aim at the striker's end. It hits direct and Ferguson is gone!

CJ Ferguson run out 12 (17m 13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 92.30

Pune Warriors 47/4   RV Uthappa 15* (15b 1x4)   KA Pollard 0.5-0-7-0

Pollard to Uthappa, OUT, slower one and that has got the break through that the side needed! Uthappa tried to swing it away to the leg-side but got only a leading edge and that went high in the air before the bowler came under it and gobbled it up with ease.

RV Uthappa c & b Pollard 36 (52m 33b 3x4 0x6) SR: 109.09

Pune Warriors 91/5   SPD Smith 21* (20b 1x4)   KA Pollard 3.1-0-22-1

Malinga to Samuels, OUT, block-hole and bowled! Malinga, barring that CB series to an extent, bowls these at will, and he has done it again. Samuels tried to give himself some room but failed to get his bat down in time and the ball has done its damage to the stumps.

MN Samuels b Malinga 4 (7m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Pune Warriors 102/6   SPD Smith 28* (23b 2x4)   SL Malinga 2.2-1-5-2

Ojha to Kumar, OUT, what a ball! This one has pitched on the leg-stump and the new-comer had no clue after it turned and bounced on him. Beaten, bowled and bye-bye!

B Kumar b Ojha 2 (3m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Pune Warriors 105/7   SPD Smith 29* (25b 2x4)   PP Ojha 3.2-0-12-1

Patel to Smith, OUT, Slower one again and Smith waited for its arrival before smacking it away. But it also went straight to Pollard at the deep mid-wicket region, who pulls it off rather easily!

SPD Smith c Pollard b Patel 39 (49m 32b 4x4 0x6) SR: 121.87

Pune Warriors 128/8   M Kartik 13* (6b 1x4 1x6)   MM Patel 3.3-0-25-2

Patel to Kartik, 1 run, OUT, this he gives himself room and drives it through the covers. One is easily had and Kartik is content with it, Rahul Sharma wants a second - and why not - but he is sent back. Dinesh Karthik gets the throw and is far away from the stumps, but he does well to throw down the wickets from about a yard or so away.

R Sharma run out 0 (3m 0b 0x4 0x6) SR: -

Pune Warriors 129/9   M Kartik 14* (9b 1x4 1x6)   MM Patel 4-0-26-2
