A one-sided match in the end, Pune still can't find a way to win. On the other hand, Sunrisers are punching above their weight in almost every game. Tomorrow they meet Mumbai Indians in Hyderabad. Thanks for your comments and feedback. Devashish Fuloria signing off. Ciao ciao.


Presentation:

Dhoni is the Man of the Match: "Well I think the platform for there. We needed those runs. We slowed down in the middle. On these kinds of wickets, you never know what is a good target, we did well in keeping wickets in hand. 160 is a good benchmark for wickets about which you know nothing about. It's important we don't really eye 180 everytime. Mohit has played a lot of Delhi cricket, city cricket makes you street smart, he has played lot of those games. He bowls with full effort, he has shown improvement in the last few games. I don't think we would really rest anyone, I think it's important to continue playing your best XI. This year hasn't been too hot, so I am not complaining about the weather."

Aaron Finch: "It's always hard to stop MS and Raina played beautifully, so it's back to the drawing board for us. (On this pitch) If you bowled the right length, you would get rewarded and it slowed down later. To knock teams out from getting into the finals is one motivation that we can play for. The fielding was a positive, but those last five overs turned the match."

Dhoni gets an award for hitting sixes, Raina gets an award for innovatively running Uthappa out..


Oh, abject performance by Pune Warriors in front of their home fans! They were chasing a strong total and needed contributions from everyone. Instead, they buckled like fake plastic, like they have done all season. Excellent bowling by Mohit Sharma earlier too. Pune seem to be testing how low can they really go..

"I was told to keep it straight because the wicket for keeping low," says Mohit Sharma after that brilliant spell. He says that it is great to be play under Dhoni and Raina and it's a good learning process.

Nikhil: "Chennai are making waves during travels. Four out of four so far in this edition. Earlier their home used to be a impregnable fortress but now they are making mockery teams away from home as well."

Kushagra : "This was really a Team ranked 1 vs Team ranked 9 match. PWI were never in this match whatsoever. CSK on the other hand proved that they are not simply a run chaser team"

Fraser: "told you all a wicket has cost a team the match. FACT, no dhoni, no target of 165."

Prabhu: "@Fraser: Do u really think Badri wd hv continued to go on with dot balls? CSK timed it and he sacrificed his wicket just to make the road set for MSD.."

Ankit Swami: "I think Pune deserves credit for being able to compete with some of the best sides in IPL. They even defeated CSK in their first encounter. It's a fairly new management, within a year or so, I think they'll definitely be a side to beat."
