Indian Premier League - 52nd match

Pune Warriors v Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals won by 7 wickets (with 22 balls remaining)


Tait to Ganguly, OUT, Ganguly's innings is over, another bouncer does the job, that was too quick for Ganguly to pull, the ball flies high towards square leg, Ankeet Chavan runs back to get under that one and pouch that safely, 14 off 18 today

SC Ganguly c Chavan b Tait 14 (27m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 77.77

Pune Warriors 30/1   MJ Clarke 11* (16b 1x4)   SW Tait 1.4-0-2-1


Binny to Clarke, OUT, Stuart Binny strikes first ball, Clarke is gone this time, he doesn't take a big stride forward as he looks to push a short of length ball to the off side, struck on the inside of his front pad, that was headed for leg, Clarke is on his way, the experiment to open with two of their slower, more experienced batsmen hasn't quite worked

MJ Clarke lbw b Binny 16 (31m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 88.88

Pune Warriors 35/2   RV Uthappa 0* (1b)   STR Binny 0.1-0-0-1


Botha to Majumdar, OUT, end of the entertainment from Majumdar, again he backed away from the stumps, Botha saw it and fired in a 98.4kph yorker, Majumdar can't get bat on it and that thuds into the legstump

AP Majumdar b Botha 30 (24m 20b 1x4 2x6) SR: 150.00

Pune Warriors 77/3   RV Uthappa 11* (13b)   J Botha 1.3-0-12-1


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?

RV Uthappa c †Yagnik b Tait 13 (35m 19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 68.42

Pune Warriors 83/4   SPD Smith 2* (3b)   SW Tait 3-0-10-2


Trivedi to Smith, 1 run, OUT, Smith survives, that spent a long time in the air after he mishit it towards mid-off, neither the man from long-off nor the fielder from cover could get there in time, no matter though as Owais Shah fires in the throw to catch out Mathews, who was scrambling for the second

AD Mathews run out 11 (19m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 91.66

Pune Warriors 107/5   SPD Smith 14* (16b 1x4)   SK Trivedi 2.1-0-14-0


Tait to Manhas, OUT, Tait does what he does best, a full fast yorker, 143 kph, Manhas aimed an ambitious hit towards long-on, that ball was too good for him, it lasers into the base of off stump, Tait has 3-10 now

M Manhas b Tait 11 (9m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 122.22

Pune Warriors 122/6   SPD Smith 17* (20b 1x4)   SW Tait 3.2-0-10-3
