Pune Warriors 11/0   AJ Finch 4* (1b 1x4)

1.3

1.5

Morkel to Finch, no run, back to that fuller length outside the off stump, defended back to the bowler, on his right

2.5

Kaul to Finch, SIX, that's the shot of this short time in the match so far, dragged it short outside the off stump and he has absolutely smashed it, over the wide long-on region for a maximum!

Kaul to Finch, no run, and it's outside the off, on a length, tapped to the short cover region

Pune Warriors 25/0   AJ Finch 12* (8b 1x4 1x6)

3.4

Morkel to Finch, no run, shorter again and tapped to the off side, straight to the fielder

7.2

Nadeem to Finch, no run, and now looks to make room and try and cut it away, beats the outside the edge

7.3

Nadeem to Finch, 2 runs, reverse-slogged for a couple of runs to wide long-on! that's a short that Warner's made famous, he takes up the stance of a left-handed batsman and smacks it

7.4

Nadeem to Finch, 1 run, on his pads and tapped away to the square-leg for a single

7.6

Nadeem to Finch, 1 run, that makes a good sound as he was looking to cut it away to deep cover, gives room by going across and the bowler's followed him, still gets a single

Pune Warriors 54/1   AJ Finch 18* (17b 1x4 1x6)

8.1

Yadav to Finch, SIX, gone all the way, it was a fullish delivery and bit of an angle into the batsman, there is a short arm jab because of the length and it's gone for a six over long-on

8.2

Yadav to Finch, no run, gets it shorter and tapped to the off side this time

8.3

Yadav to Finch, SIX, and now that's been hit over mid-wicket for another boundary, that was a shorter one this time and hes quickly back and smacking, gets it all the way for a six, which is what the fielder at the boundary, Nadeem says too after the umpire has signalled a four

8.4

Yadav to Finch, FOUR, and that's another four for Finch, it's very full on the off stump and that's taken as a full-toss, gets the gap through extra-cover for a four

8.5

Yadav to Finch, 1 run, shorter in length outside the off stump, tapped to the off side for a quick single

Pune Warriors 74/1   AJ Finch 37* (24b 2x4 3x6)

10.1

Pathan to Finch, no run, shorter in length but was moving back into the batsman to cramp him there, can get it out to the point fielder only

10.2

Pathan to Finch, SIX, whoa, was in his arc and while it's not really gone out of the park, it's a good, good shot to earn him a six, a pick-up stroke over backward square-leg

10.3

Pathan to Finch, no run, shorter in length and outside the off stump, tapped to the short cover area

10.4

Pathan to Finch, no run, shorter in length and wants to cut it, goes for it hard but that's easily missed the outside edge of the bat

10.5

Pathan to Finch, 2 runs, shorter in length and that's bit of deft placement after coming down the track, just tapped to backward square-leg for a couple

10.6

Pathan to Finch, FOUR, not a good ball this, the attempt was to cramp him for room by bowling on a length and close to the middle stump, the ball moves back and easily tucked away to the backward square-leg area for a four

Pune Warriors 86/2   AJ Finch 49* (30b 3x4 4x6)

11.2

Kaul to Finch, 1 run, shorter outside the off and that's pulled from quite away from him to mid-wicket, it did not look like he wanted that single and the late decision almost costs him, the throw misses the stumps though and he gets his 50!

11.4

Kaul to Finch, 2 runs, and he goes for the pull again, the ball's too short and he isn't going to ignore it, swings away but a good effort from the deep square-leg fielder restricts them to two

11.5

Kaul to Finch, no run, fuller on the off stump and smacked to short cover, straight to the fielder

11.6

Kaul to Finch, OUT, lobbed up and caught to square-leg, the fielder from mid-wicket had to rush to his right before taking a good catch, Finch's miffed with himself for that shot

Pune Warriors 91/3   AJ Finch 52 (34b 3x4 4x6)
