  Rising Pune Supergiant innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AM Rahane b Badree 30 37 25 5 0 120.00
7.4 goes through him with a googly! I think Rahane picks the variation, but he is not ready for the ball to dip on him so much. Slow delivery, drawing him out of his crease, making him overbalance, sneaks under his bat and crashes into leg stump. Great deception 63/1
View dismissal RA Tripathi c Kohli b Negi 31 41 23 3 1 134.78
8.2 hit seriously hard, and a little to the left of the short cover fielder, but Kohli puts in the dive and is reflexes are quick enough. The lid comes off the Chinnaswamy as their captain throws the ball up high and looks like he owns the place. To think all this had begun with Tripathi doing well to make room to pull off a lovely inside out drive. He seemed to have got the gap too until Kohli made his play 69/2
View dismissal SPD Smith* b Aravind 27 43 24 3 0 112.50
16.1 the stumps are a mess again! Aravind does the job with a cross-seamer that stays a touch low. Smith, camped deep in his crease, on the leg side, looking for a length delivery to slog, hits over the ball and misses it altogether. Then comes that awful rattle 127/4
View dismissal MS Dhoni b Watson 28 37 25 3 1 112.00
15.6 slogs across the line and gets an inside edge onto the stumps. It's too full for a hack through midwicket like that. Too wide as well. 127/3
View dismissal BA Stokes b Milne 2 8 3 0 0 66.66
17.1 and he strikes straight away! Stays back to a length ball and looks for the pull, but the ball, angled across the left-hander, sneaks off the insid edge and topples off stump. Pune have to swing for the fences because of their scoring rate so far, but they are slogging across the line and losing their wickets. This innings is going so badly for them 130/6
View dismissal DT Christian c Mandeep Singh b Aravind 1 3 3 0 0 33.33
16.5 this is a boundary ball, and though Christian has hit it perfectly, he also picks out deep square leg perfectly. Full delivery, at top pace, on the pads, ripe for the flick. Christian does the needful, but then he hasn't found the gap. Mandeep runs in and takes a good catch diving forward 129/5
View dismissal MK Tiwary run out (Kohli/†Jadhav) 27 19 11 3 2 245.45
19.6 from Milne, slower ball outside off, almost helicopters it through to long-on, the flick shot, being powered by a wristy flourish at the end. They get a single, they go for the second, Tiwary puts in a huge dive, but he can't get back in time 161/8
View dismissal SN Thakur c de Villiers b Milne 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
17.2 and gone first ball. Simple catch for AB de Villiers at cover. It is deafening at the Chinnaswamy. Slower ball from Milne, bowled with a cross seam. Thakur is early on to the front foot, pushes and ends up chipping it tamely 130/7

View dismissal V Kohli* c Rahane b Stokes 28 24 19 3 1 147.36
5.3 awkward shot, there is no way he could have got on top of the bounce of a bouncer, especially on the front foot. Tries to flat-bat it down the ground, instead it skews off towards the sweeper on the off side. Rahane pouches it easily. No room for the shot, too much height on the ball to go through with it anyway 41/2
View dismissal Mandeep Singh c †Dhoni b Thakur 0 7 3 0 0 0.00
1.5 still manages a wicket, but it's the other opener. It's short and wide again and Mandeep goes for a cut shot. Gets a thick outside edge through to the keeper 14/1
View dismissal AB de Villiers st †Dhoni b Imran Tahir 29 39 30 1 2 96.66
10.2 he's stumped! We'll need the third umpire's confirmation, but this should be out. Such lovely flight and then sharp dip too. De Villiers is reaching out, he is off balance, he is flicking against the turn, and he is thoroughly beaten. Dhoni collects it, there is no give, that's his specialty and because of that he is able to break the stumps before AB can get back 70/3
View dismissal KM Jadhav b Unadkat 18 45 22 0 0 81.81
14.5 he's done him with the slower ball! Jadhav tries to force the pace, coming down the track and looking to slog without thinking about anything else. Gets an inside edge onto leg stump. Plays too early. Loses balance. Everything wrong with the shot. Everything right with the ball and tactics 91/4
View dismissal SR Watson b Stokes 14 27 18 1 0 77.77
15.5 keeps low. Pune have done this so well. They haven't panicked after putting on what was thought a below-par total. They have hit the deck, a hard length. They have not allowed any room to any of RCB's big hitters. And here Stokes reaps the rewards. Watson slogs, misses the ball, sees his stumps in disarray 101/5
View dismissal STR Binny b Thakur 18 17 8 2 1 225.00
17.6 gave him free access to all his stumps and Thakur nails them. Binny had moved right across, well outside off, looking for a scoop. But the bowler delivers it full, straight, doesn't let the batsman have the leverage he needs and then sends him on his way. This is a mess from RCB 125/7
View dismissal P Negi c Tripathi b Thakur 10 9 7 0 1 142.85
17.3 this is a spectacular catch! Under pressure is when you least want to be under a skier. A swirler. Tripathi is the mat at deep midwicket, setting himself up, eyes always on the ball coming down on him. Takes it like a boss. Slower ball from Thakur makes Negi stretch out to slog, and that moment when he lost balance, stole his timing away 123/6
View dismissal AF Milne b Stokes 2 9 3 0 0 66.66
19.3 topples him. It's a good length ball on off stump, the kind you see in Test match. Milne swings, misses and has to walk back 132/9
View dismissal S Badree b Unadkat 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
18.2 middle pole out of the ground again. It's the slower ball again. Pune have bowled a lot of them this innings and have had loads of success. Badree here slogs across the line and is nowhere near the line of the ball 126/8
