Commentary

That will be it from us for the moment, folks. Join us tomorrow for Deccan v Bangalore. Till then this is Abhishek Purohit signing off. Cheers. And don't forget to check out Sid Ravi's bulletin which will be updated soon.

Mohnish Mishra is the Man of the Match: "I am happy with No 6, it is a challenge for me to bat at this position. It was tough after Robin's dismissal, I thought I would stay till the end. The sweep shot is on against the offspinner, I went for it and got it. I had not faced Murali much but watched him closely and went for it."

Yuvraj Singh: "Partnership between Hodge and Jadeja got them to a good total. Robin and Mohnish played well. We could have bowled and fielded well, but we won at the end of the day. Mohnish keeps telling me that he wants to open, but I tell him he is a good No 6, and he is going to be at No 6 from now on."

Mahela Jayawardene: "From where we started, losing 3-4 wickets upfront, we came back strongly, but could not finish the game. We have to ensure we do that. T20 cricket, you have to do that, one or two overs here or there, and you lose a game. We had a chance after Robin;s dismissal. Just the beginning of the tournament, we need not go negative about how it has gone so far."

Hang on for the presentation.

Uthappa: "I time the reverse sweep very well, just have to work more on the shot. I did pretty well last year, hopefully I can do even better this year. I enjoy keeping, have been moving well. Generally I like to open the batting."

Ravindra Jadeja tried his best with bat and ball but could not prevent Pune from charging to their second win. It got a bit close towards the end, Mohnish Mishra tackled Murali calmly, and easily, finishing it off with some big ones over long on.

raghu: "May be Laxman will bowl in the Next match."

raja: "May be next match Mahela should bowl himself."

vivek: "Jaya tried Gomez, he got hammered. Murali, he too got hammered."
