Pune Warriors 35/1   RV Uthappa 0* (1b)

6.4

Binny to Uthappa, no run, huge appeal for lbw, a back of the hand slower ball, like a legspinner to his Karnataka team-mate Robin Uthappa, who misses it and is struck on the pads, that looked out, was going to hit the leg stump, perhaps the umpire thought there was an inside-edge

8.1

Binny to Uthappa, 1 run, angling in and that is tucked towards midwicket for a single

Binny to Uthappa, no run, short of length ball and outside off, looks to guide it down to third man but can't connect

8.4

Binny to Uthappa, 2 runs, another slower one from Binny, slammed towards wide long-on but can't find the boundary

Botha to Uthappa, 1 leg bye, big appeal for lbw as Uthappa misses on the reverse-sweep, umpire's not interested, struck outside off

Pune Warriors 79/3   RV Uthappa 11* (14b)

12.1

Tait to Uthappa, no run, Uthappa really had no clue about that, a 142 kph length ball that he wanted to hoick over midwicket, doesn't get anywhere near it

12.2

Tait to Uthappa, 2 runs, bouncer this time, 143kph, and well outside off, Uthappa goes for the pull, off the bottom edge towards long-on

12.3

Tait to Uthappa, 1 leg bye, polite lbw appeal this time, a 145.6 kph yorker this time, that hits him low on the pads but was going well down the leg side,Uthappa points out to Smith that it swing in a long way

12.5

Tait to Uthappa, no run, a low full toss outside off, 143 kph, Uthappa pushes this towards mid-off, a dot ball

12.6

Tait to Uthappa, OUT, great over from Tait ends with the reward of Uthappa's wicket, full and wide 145 kph delivery, Uthappa throws his bat at it in an attempt to blaze it through the off side, off the edge to the keeper, strike-rate below 70 this innings, where's the big-hitting finisher Pune splashed 2 million or so for?
