    0.6 Unadkat starts off with a wicket maiden. Narine finally puts bat on the ball. Sharp return catch to his left. Rolls his fingers across this cutter outside off, Narine flat-bats it. Not off the middle because he played early. Skewed back. This is Pune's first ever maiden in the first over of an IPL match 0/1
    5.5 Having hit back-to-back boundaries, Gambhir goes for another one. He finds Rahane at deep midwicket. Flat and wider outside off, Gambhir fetches it from there and drags it across the line in the air. Holes out to Rahane at deep midwicket 40/3
    3.6 Oh dear, Jackson is out hit wicket. This is the flat skidder on middle stump, Jackson has to go back. He goes too far back and steps on the stumps. Works it away towards square leg and looks to set off for a single. Dhoni, though, appealed to the square leg umpire after Jackson trod on the stumps or rather pointed to the fielder to stop the ball. Jackson has to exit, though 19/2
    14.1 Holes out to deep midwicket. Slower ball comes in towards leg stump. Pandey looks to swat it away. He has to manufacture all the pace. Skews it off the bottom of the bat to Rahane at deep midwicket 103/5
    9.1 an appeal for lbw from Tahir. Umpire Ananthapadmanabhan raises his finger. It was plumb. Flatter and quicker from wide of the crease, this slider crashes into the front pad as Yusuf is stuck to the crease, playing across it. It was crashing into the middle of middle. That was how plumb it was. Tahir brings out the rock-the-baby celebration, à la Darren Sammy 55/4
    16.2 another slower ball, skewed to Sundar at backward point. Slower offcutter, grips in the surface, and bounces at de Grandhomme. He uses his feet and eyes up the leg side but plays far too early. Pops off a leading edge to the fielder. Unadkat is turning it around for Pune again 119/6

    17.4 back of a length on middle, punched wide of long-on. Surya and Woakes chance the second. The throw is the deep is flat, Christian collects it and takes the bails off. Woakes has been caught well short 129/7
    19.3 the batsman steps away outside leg and looks to whip it over midwicket. This is the slower ball chasing him. Sppons a leading edge to backward point 152/8

    1.4 what a delivery! It just kept closing in on Rahane, who thinks he has the chance to run it to third man, a stroke he is impeccably good at. But Umesh's pace - and his bounce - the ball just kept rising - takes the glove through to the keeper 11/1
    18.4 he's gone! Gone for 93. Gone to a slower ball. Is there life in this game yet? Poor Tripathi. He has timed better balls to the boundary. This one is short, it has ample room to free the arms, he does free his arms, but pulls it straight to midwicket. Rovman Powell, who is yet to get a game, takes the catch 150/6
    4.6 off stump goes to sleep, possibly peeved that Smith would play a shot like that and leave it open to Woakes' menace. He backs away to try and flay a shortish delivery through cover, misses altogether 59/2
    8.2 ripper! He isn't just an outswing bowler. People seem to think that's all he has, but this one hits the seam, nips back, takes the inside edge of a batsman just thrusting his hands at the ball and then crashes into his stumps 88/3
    13.3 superb catch by Narine himself, running back the moment he made Stokes top-edge the ball. Races to where an orthodox mid-on would be, always in control, then reaches out with both hands and takes it like a boss. Hundred a day ago, but Eden consumes Stokes, again. Walks off thrusting the bat into the outfield. A parting shot. 131/4
    16.1 he's walking. That's twice in two matches Kuldeep has had Dhoni. This one is the googly, which the batsman has not picked. Reaches out, trying to drive the ball to long-off, but with it moving further away from him, he can only nick it to the keeper 139/5
