That brings us to the end of an innings that never really found any wheels. There was a brief period where Perera promised to give some respectability to the total, but this is below par score here. Angelo had assessed this as a 160-170 pitch and by that assessment, Pune should be able to finish this game within sixteen overs. Well, there are four Steyn overs to look forward to.

Aditya: "@ Nuwan yess Perera wicket was last nail in the coffin"

Deep: "Given India's bowling stocks - Bhuvneshwar, Dinda, Yuvi and Rahul Sharma have all acquitted themselves well." -- I'll reserve that judgment to the time they bowl against better batsman Deep..

MrGarreth: "Don't worry Hyderabad fans, Quinton de Kock is coming." -- that doesn't sound right..

Vish: "Is "Low full toss outside off" the new Yorker? Y'day Munaf to Gayle and today Dinda to Perera. It didn't look yorkers gone wrong either." --- Slrrrp, a new-yorker, making me hungry..

Srikanth: "Can I gift 'Management for Dummies' to Sunrisers franchise?"

Padmanabhan: "@Srikanth - May I know your full name pls?" -- Haha, nice one.

American Cricket Fan: "Lets congratulate Ashish Reddy, for reaching 200 T20 runs. good job bro"
