7.50 pm Deccan Chargers have won two out of nine games this IPL and both have been against Pune Warriors. Deccan are still last in the league, while Pune stay seventh. They had an opportunity to move up to third today but fluffed it. The over-rate has been shocking today, we're only 10 minutes away from the start of the next game, and I've got to dash off and do the report for that one. Thank you for all your emails. Don't go too far, though, Delhi v Rajasthan coming up. Cheers.

Pratap Singh to Manhas, no run, the first ball is terrific and in the blockhole outside off, Mahnas gets beaten

Pune need 23 off the final over. Mahnas will be on strike, Samuels and Parnell are still in the dugout. Veer Pratap to bowl.
