Follow IPL T20 live score for Rising Pune Supergiant vs Gujarat Lions

That is it from us at Sportskeeda tonight. It is goodbye and good night for today. Catch us tomorrow for another important IPL tie.
So 10 games gone and Pune are on 12 points with 6 wins. Gujarat, on the other hand, have 6 points and are sixth, missing out on putting Punjab under some pressure. This innings from Stokes has threatened Gujarat's chances in the tournament immensely. They can at most get to 14 points now. Gujarat will be most disappointed by the failure in the middle order after Brendon McCullum got them started well. Neither Raina, Finch or Dwayne Smith played a match-defining innings for them.    
"It is great to be a part of this side and be an all-rounder. We lost a few early wickets and MS and I looked to tick the scoreboard. It was one of those good days today and we need to keep winning these tight games. It was good to get some rest and hit the ball properly," says the messiah and Man of the Match Ben Stokes.
Man of the Match - Ben Stokes
"It wasn't an ideal start. Stokes and Dhoni took it deep. This is one of those Indian grounds where you can hit sixes easily. Credit to the bowlers for pulling them back to 160. We have good cricket and hopefully we can continue. We are proud of Stokes," says the host and winning captain Steven Smith.

Perfect catch of the match- Brendon McCullum
Time for the presentation.
Gujarat will rue missing out on those golden 2 points. One of the most stunning and unbelievable batting performances has scripted a famous come-from-behind win for a solid unit. Imran Tahir deserves a lot of credit too. Remember, Stokes replaced Lockie Ferguson in the eleven for Pune today.
"We lost due to bad bowling at the death. But Sangwan gave us a very good start. At 10/3, we had a good chance. But Stokes took it away and we need to take the responsibility for the next match," says the Gujarat captain Suresh Raina after that assault from Stokes.
Pune win with a ball to spare. Just the perfect finish with that heave over deep mid wicket from Christian. What a win after being 42/4.
Salute the superman, honour the hero! Stokes tears apart the Gujarat bowling. 7 fours and 6 sixes. The innings of the tournament (don't mind, David Warner fans!).

Stokes is down with cramps.Yes,that's true!
Thampi is thumped after a fantastic first 3 overs. With 25 to get off 12,Gujarat and Thampi had the opportunity to put Pune under the pump. But, ah! They could have done better. 17 smashed. 8 required.
