That concludes are coverage of today's matches. Do join us tomorrow for another double header, the first between Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad, and the subsequent one between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Daredevils. Thank you and Good Night!
...
Pathan: "I have been hitting the ball well. When you win a match,like the one against RCB, it gives you a lot of confidence. Hence, I am happy, not thinking much and making the opposition think."
...
Yusuf Pathan is the MAN OF THE MATCH
...
Gambhir: "We were looking to bat first but I have lost a lot of tosses. But things are going well and the bowlers are bowling professionally. Quality spinners do not need surfaces. We still have matches to go so I dont want to jinx it by talking about Pathan's form"
...
Dhoni: "I think, looking at the wicket, 135-140 would have been a good score. We kept losing wickets in the middle, and the pressure was on the middle order. Getting a partnership on a slow wicket is important. We can't control the weather, so it is fair. Two more games to go"
...
4.6 Zampa to Yusuf, 1 BYE, GAME SET MATCH. Thank you very much. KKR win by 8 wickets. Pune cannot buy a win. The gum-chewing, towering figure of Yusuf Pathan has dissolved the chase in the matter of one over. There was a lot of spin and bounce first up, but Pathan decided to swing his bat out of it, and displayed brute force to end it in a jiffy. He ends with 37 off just 18.

Pathan has done enough damage in one over to make the chase a stroll in the park for KKR. The initial pressure has diffused away.
...
2.6 R Ashwin to Yusuf, FOUR, full ball, Yusuf plants that big front foot and smokes the ball over mid-on. What an over, completely snatches the game away from Pune!

KKR have lapped up a poor over from Dinda and have got going. They are 22/2 after two, and the target has started looking smaller already.

...
1.4 Dinda to Manish, 2 runs, length ball outside off, short too, Manish cuts it past point to deep third man and Manish sprints across for a brace. Dhoni gets the throw some distance away from the stumps, but still manages to direct the throw to the stumps with his gloves, without looking.

...
