Pune Warriors v Delhi Daredevils

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

0.6

Pathan to Finch, FOUR, and now Finch gets into the act the first ball he faces, it's fuller on the off stump and drives it through wide mid-off for a good boundary to start things off

Pune Warriors 11/0   IK Pathan 1-0-11-0

6.1

Pathan to Finch, 1 run, width outside the off stump but the pace gets lost some place after the ball pitched, tapped to the off side for a single

6.2

Pathan to Pandey, no run, shorter in length and slower too, the bat-swing had to be drastically changed to defend it to the off side

6.3

Pathan to Pandey, no run, goes down the track and the bowler's shortened the length, pushes it to the short mid-wicket area

6.4

Pathan to Pandey, no run, looks to open his stance up and smack it over the top, gets an inside edge of the bat back to the bowler

6.5

Pathan to Pandey, SIX, finally off the middle, finally a six! it was shorter in length from Pathan, probably expecting MP to come down again, pulls it without moving out

6.6

Pathan to Pandey, 1 leg bye, gets it off the pads and rolls over to the leg-side for a leg-bye

Pune Warriors 48/1   IK Pathan 2-0-18-0

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   IK Pathan 3-0-30-0

13.1

Pathan to Mathews, 2 runs, almost, just over the point's head! it was a short of a length delivery outside the off and he manages to cut it over the fielder there for a couple

13.2

Pathan to Mathews, 1 run, another one that's shorter outside the off but yet again, there's no pace on it, tapped down to long-off for a single

13.3

Pathan to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, and that's a dolly for Virender, Yuvi's gone! there's no doubt this is a difficult track to play too many shots too early, it was a short of length ball and he was looking to smash it some place, pull or cut I am not sure! it gets some bat on it and it lobs up to the off side for a simple catch

Yuvraj Singh c Sehwag b Pathan 3 (16m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

13.4

Pathan to Mathews, 1 run, shorter in length and tapped down to long-off for a single

13.5

Pathan to Wright, no run, slower one on the middle-stump line, pushed back to the right of the bowler

13.6

Pathan to Wright, no run, another one short in length but there is no pace on it, cut hard but straight to the point fielder on one bounce

Pune Warriors 97/4   IK Pathan 4-0-34-1
