Commentary

Presentation:

Sourav Ganguly: It was good, great cricketing pitch. When you win against a team like Chennai you get a buzz. Proud of the way the bowlers bowled, Ashish Nehra and Ashok Dinda did a good job. Smith has improved immensely from what I had seen last.

MS Dhoni: It was even-steven, but our execution wasn't good, we have struggled in the first six and the last few overs. Just wanted to check who wanted to bowl, asked YoMi whether he wanted to bowl and he looked positive, so threw him the ball. That is how you learn.

Jesse Ryder, man of the match: I wanted to bat through the innings, I wanted to continue with that idea, Steven Smith made it easy for me to do that. This was a different track to the one we played on in the first game and made it easy to play the strokes. The home crowd is amazing and they are supporting us well. Smith did a good job too. I didn't want to throw my wicket away after getting a flier.

Ryder deflected the question on the Samuels incident.

Pune have chased this down really well and made it three wins out of four games! Jesse Ryder did a good job of batting through the innings, even managing to shrug off a period of friction with his batting partner, Marlon Samuels. Smith's 22-ball 44 provided a perfect finish to the game for the Warriors.

Chennai won a close game last time, this time they lose it and have two wins from five games now. They will be a tad worried with this start, although we all know how well they have comeback after slow starts before. Stay tuned for the presentation.

Mahesh to Smith, SIX runs, dropped! Six! What a shot! What a game! Pitched up to the bat and Smith smacks it from the middle of the bat to the sweeper fielder, Ravindra Jadeja, who had to run to his right and he got his hand to it. It was a catch alright, on another day, under other conditions, he would have caught it, this was not his or his team's night though and he tips it over the bar for a six!

Mahesh to Smith, FOUR runs, horrid, horrid delivery after the kind of field set for him! It was a full-toss and it was on his pads and with the fine-leg up in the circle, it has been flicked away to the fence.

Yo Mahesh will bowl the final over. That is placing a lot of faith on a young player on his Chennai Super Kings debut. Two points in place!

END OF OVER:

Kulasekara to Smith, 1 run, full-toss and he tried to smoke it into the stands. Mistimes it and that takes the edge through to the third-man fielder. 10 needed from the last over.

Kulasekara to Ryder, 1 run, pitched right up to the bat, and played away to the point fielder, even Ryder is off quickly for a single

Kulasekara to Smith, 1 run, another one pitched right up and played away to the off-side for a single. Pune are on top at the moment!
