Pune Warriors won by 38 runs

0.1

Pathan to Uthappa, no run, fuller on the middle stump, floats up to the bat and bit on in-swing into the batsman, Uthappa pushes forward and to the mid-on

0.2

Pathan to Uthappa, 2 runs, shorter this time and outside the off stump, easily cut away through backward point for a couple of runs, the third-man runs across

0.3

Pathan to Uthappa, FOUR, and hit for the first four of the day, it was on a length and Uthappa goes down the track as he would to a spinner, not completely off the middle but beats the mid-on easily

0.4

Pathan to Uthappa, no run, shortens his length completely, tapped to the leg-side this time

0.5

Pathan to Uthappa, 1 run, on a good length and it swings back a little, easily tucked away to square-leg for a single

Pune Warriors 7/0   RV Uthappa 7* (5b 1x4)

1.1

Morkel to Uthappa, no run, fuller length from Morne and Uthappa is on his front foot and defended to the off side

1.2

Morkel to Uthappa, 3 runs, that's shuffling on to his pads and easily pushed down to deep square-leg, the fielder at fine-leg needs to run around to stop it and they come back for the third

1.4

Morkel to Uthappa, 1 run, and even as I said that, that's a tad shorter on the middle, he goes back and taps it to the leg side and before Morne can come around to field it, they are away

Pune Warriors 16/0   RV Uthappa 11* (8b 1x4)

2.1

Kaul to Uthappa, 1 run, outside the off stump and on a good length, he fishes his bat out and gets it through the backward point, but a single alone

2.4

Kaul to Uthappa, 1 run, length ball on an off-stump line, he takes a couple of steps out and taps it to mid-on for a single, they waited the ball passed the bowler before completing it

Pune Warriors 19/0   RV Uthappa 13* (10b 1x4)

3.1

Morkel to Uthappa, FOUR, glorious, that's absolutely excellent! it was a length ball alright but he was only look to get on to the front foot and push at it, the push beats the mid-off fielder with some ease

3.2

Morkel to Uthappa, 1 run, gets closer to the middle stump and fuller, flicked away to the deep square-leg area for a single

3.6

Morkel to Uthappa, 1 run, lot of bounce at Uthappa who does well to open the face of the bat and guides it to third-man for a single

Pune Warriors 32/0   RV Uthappa 19* (13b 2x4)

4.1

Kaul to Uthappa, no run, on a length and he gets the outside half of the bat through to the point fielder

4.2

Kaul to Uthappa, no run, and now the walkathon-slog, only this time he misses, was going down the track to have a pull at it, misses the top edge

4.3

Kaul to Uthappa, no run, and again, bit more bounce than what he thought, gets an edge through to point

4.4

Kaul to Uthappa, no run, why would you play such a shot, he's been doing well all this while with the straight bat, he was looking to go across to outside the off and scoop it over fine-leg, hit on the pads and an appeal follows

4.5

Kaul to Uthappa, FOUR, and this one has been blazed away through the extra-cover region for a four! fuller on the off stump and he's creamed it through the area, well done

4.6

Kaul to Uthappa, 1 run, shorter on the off stump and patted it to mid-on for a quick single

Pune Warriors 37/0   RV Uthappa 24* (19b 3x4)

5.1

Yadav to Uthappa, 1 wide, down the leg side and starts with a wide, it was a quick enough delivery but with the radar wrong, fuller too

5.1

Yadav to Uthappa, OUT, gone, caught at point now, is it? was a fuller one outside the off stump and he was looking to drive at it, gets an outside edge and flies to point where it's taken, Uthappa's not convinced it's gone without bouncing and the third umpire's called to adjudicate on it. That's a surprise, it was far from bouncing anywhere but straight into the fielder's hands

RV Uthappa c Warner b Yadav 24 (22m 20b 3x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

Pune Warriors 38/1   RV Uthappa 24 (20b 3x4)
