Kumar to Rahane, OUT, outstanding catch from Smith, just what Pune needed, an innocuous delivery outside off, Rahane cuts it slightly uppishly, hadn't counted on the flying Smith, who dives full-length to his right to pouch that inches off the ground, ridiculously good from Smith, Rahane won't be getting the orange cap today then

Murali Kartik is on. Slip in place, long-on and deep midwicket on the rope

2.1
0
Kartik to Watson, no run, shortish outside off, chopped towards backward point
2.2

Kartik to Watson, SIX, a trademark Watson stroke, gets the front let out of the way, and hammers that over long-on for six, he's brutal with that stroke against the spinners

2.5
0
Kartik to Watson, no run, defends it towards extra cover
2.6
6
Kartik to Watson, SIX, whoah, Steve Smith has nearly pulled off the best piece of outfielding, possibly ever, Watson hammered that one towards long-on, where Smith ran across to try take an over head catch, he realises he was going over the rope, so he tosses the ball up, but he can't toss it up back into the field of play, Smith is behind the rope as he jumps and pushes the ball back into play, then takes the catch on the third attempt, he was in the air when he touched the ball the second time, so am not entirely sure why that was given not out

END OF OVER:
3 | 16 Runs | RR: 21/1 (105 runs required from 17 overs, RR: 7.00, RRR: 6.17)
