4.1

Malinga to Uthappa, 1 run, full, outside off, played with an open face to third man

4.2

Malinga to Pandey, 1 run, short, rising towards the head, he has pulled after taking his eyes off it. Manages to somehow keep it down, though

4.3

4.3

Malinga to Uthappa, FOUR, goes deep into the crease for the free hit, turns this into a half-volley, and drives it square for four

4.4

Malinga to Uthappa, OUT, he hasn't overstepped this time. Uthappa misses another full toss. He has moved too far across to play this to leg. The ball is swinging in, and his him on the full, and in front of middle. Gone

5.4

Ahmed to Pandey, no run, on a length, into the pads, pushed to short midwicket. Yuvraj, the non-striker, is standing almost beside midwicket, and the fielder there is his good friend Harbhajan.

5.5

5.6

Ahmed to Pandey, 1 run, pushed to mid-on for one

12.5

Malinga to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, low full toss. Yuvraj doesn't try to get under it. Is happy with just the singles off Malinga

Arsh: "MI need to be consistent with their choice of the third fast bowler between Suyal, Kulkarni and Abu Nechim. They don't to be hurt badly in the playoff by shuffling them too much. Munaf is certainly out of favour."

12.6

Malinga to Pandey, OUT, he has found Rayudu as if he was his long-lost best friend. Full toss, knee high, middle and leg. He could have launched it anywhere, but has timed it straight to deep midwicket. They are checking it for a no-ball on height, but it is knee high only. Praveen Kumar must be wondering what the hell is this. They refused to check a chest-high no-ball for him when he could have won them a match. I am being told you can check for no-balls only if a wicket has fallen. Clear signs you need better people on the technical committee

MK Pandey c Rayudu b Malinga 29 (43m 29b 1x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

End of over 13 (6 runs) Pune Warriors 84/3 (RR: 6.46)

Harbhajan to bowl out. Angelo Mathews is the new man in, but he is not on strike

13.1

Harbhajan Singh to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, bunted into the off side for one

Jiten Surtani: "Talking about spirit.... watched the highlights of the thrashing Gayle give Pune !!! After the match, Yuvraj walks upto Gayle, shakes his hand and jokingly takes his bat away as if to say that he wants to bat with it....to manage such humour with a person who has thrashed you requires spirit !!! Respect !!!"

13.2

Harbhajan Singh to Mathews, no run, stays round the stumps. Tossed up on off, defended back to him

13.3

Harbhajan Singh to Mathews, OUT, stop the press. Tendulkar has hit a direct hit. And he has a wicket. The doosra from Harbhajan, he has dabbed it to short third man, and takes off for one. Tendulkar lets it rip, and takes out the middle of middle at the non-striker's end. This was a no-ball, but not called. Mathews would still have been out even if it was called a no-ball, by the way

AD Mathews run out 0 (4m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

13.4

Harbhajan Singh to Yuvraj Singh, no run

13.5

Harbhajan Singh to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, Singh is King. Harbhajan. Not Yuvraj. Harbhajan is capping off a good spell excellently. He has been changing his pace well, and this one is pushed in slightly. Lands on a length, outside off, holds its line against the angle, beats the outside edge, hits him on the back pad. In front of off. Gone

Johnson comes back

14.1

Johnson to Nayar, 1 run, Nayar moves across the stumps to work this to leg

Ramitha: "That's call Malinga effect. When you need a breakthrough, you call Malinga. Then other bowlers can collect the bricks of the broken wall."

A slip in for Richardson

14.3

15.6

End of over 16 (6 runs) Pune Warriors 94/5 (RR: 5.87)

17.1

Johnson to Richardson, no run, slower ball first up, and Richardson is days early into the slog

Forty balls since the last boundary

17.2

17.3

Johnson to Richardson, OUT, slower bouncer. Richardson is early into the shot and is cramped for room, and ends up lobbing it to long-on for a single catch

KW Richardson c Harbhajan Singh b Johnson 8 (19m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Hasan: "@ kedar: thanks for sharing link. Bowler and feilder are same in that run out also"

B Kumar c Smith b Ahmed 2 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

No boundary since Yuvraj hit those two sixes in the 11th over. That tells you all you need to know. Nothing wrong with the pitch. It's just good bowling and poor batting. We will be back with the chase soon
