    3.3 the Orange Cap gets under it and Ryder rides back to the dug-out. Nechim sends down a deceptively quick short ball, Ryder looks to bully him by getting back and playing a short-arm pull, but that was onto him in a jiffy. Ryder went through with the shot and got a bit of top-edge. Tendulkar at midwicket back-pedals, puts his arms up and holds it over the head. 16/1
    4.2 Pune are in trouble here. Munaf's removed Paine and celebrated with with typical minimalism. Effort ball, Munaf got that across faster than normal and it was a touch short too. Paine looked to pull and missed, the ball clipped top of off. Munaf is one of those seamers with no follow through. He stops, puts his hand up, looks down the track seriously and walks slowly down the track. 17/3
    3.5 Nechim, got 'im. Again. Manhas doesn't move the feet and has a wild flail outside off as Nechim keeps it sharp and quick just outside off. This man has gone some pace, and Manhas found out as he was late into the shot. Outside edge carries easily to Rayudu. 17/2
    14.2 Pollard does a Jonty Rhodes. And then does a Flintoff. Uthappa's got to go, and he's perished to a fantastic catch. Murtaza sees him coming out, drops it just back of a length and forces Uthappa to heave down the ground despite not getting to the pitch. Uthappa could not time it well, and it seemed like he would hence be safe, since this was set to land some ten metres in front of long on. Try telling Pollard that. He runs forward and to his left, swoops in and plucks it when he is horizontal, inches off the ground. And then has the presence of mind to ensure he gets the hand under the ball when he lands. And then he gets up on his knees, puts his arms wide and stands like Flintoff as his team-mates charge in. Spectacular. 98/7
    4.4 Yuvraj is gone. Pune have lost four wickets in eight balls. I need time to breathe. Munaf keeps it on that nagging length outside off, Yuvraj's feet don't move very decisively early on and he pokes it through to Rayudu, as it angles past. Munaf lets out a bit of a roar this time as he puts the hand up and walks down the track. 17/4
    8.3 well, he just can't hold himself back, this Mohnish Mishra. He wasn't satisfied with four, he wanted a six, and was not mindful of the state of the game. Looks to get the front foot across, go down on a knee, and heave Murtaza against the spin over long on. Can't get enough on it, and Rohit Sharma on the boundary takes it. 52/5
    12.6 Kartik's played the poorest shot of the day. He's chipped a full ball from Malinga straight to Symonds, a few metres inside the circle at mid-on. It was full, and might have come off slower than he thought. Kartik stays back and looks to tap it over the infield. Mistake. Pune are in a soup. Malinga-tawny soup. 87/6
    15.6 well, Franklin pulls one back with a little inducker that lands back of a length, comes in a touch and misses Parnell's almighty heave to the leg side. 111/8
    17.2 Pune are bowled out with many overs to spare. Munaf again keeps it outside off, Rahul carves it in the air, and Murtaza at deep point runs in to pouch it. So far, a very one-sided derby game this. 118/10
    16.4 131 kph. Not a slower ball normally. But when Malinga bowls it, it sure is a slower ball. Full and on the pads, Wagh was into the chip very early and tamely scooped it to midwicket. Easy as they come. 118/9

    1.4 the Franklin experiment has ended in failure. Another soft dismissal, we've seen some of those today. Full delivery on the pads, worked with the angle, early on the shot, uppish and straight to mid-on. Clipped too early, and Franklin can enjoy the rest of the evening. 9/1
    13.4 Stop the press! Tendulkar is out finally, in IPL 2011. Similar ball, tossed up by Rahul Sharma outside off, Tendulkar dances down the track and connects well, but he needed a little more power to get this all the way. Thomas runs across to his right and collects it easily. 83/2
    14.6 aha, Pune get another one. They surely can't pull this back from here? Rayudu looks to hit another biggie, gets a length ball and tries to launch it over long on, but can't get beyond Rahul Sharma on the boundary. 89/3
