That's all from us today. Tune in tomorrow, where we bring the coverage of Royal Challengers locking horns with Mumbai Indians at the Chinnaswamy stadium.
...
Man of the Match, Zampa: "The performance hasn't sunk in yet. It is hard for a leg-spinner,when you know that batsmen are gonna come hard. Dhoni didn't tell me I'll bowl the 20th over before. He just tossed the ball at me. He told me to fire it wide out of the reach, because leg side was their strength. The experience has been fantastic, the crowds have been great."
...
Warner: " It was very close, wicket was going to be slow and tough. There were runs on the board, but I think we were 25-30 runs short. When I came back I was positive, and the way boys bowled was fantastic. Fantastic win to go for us forward. Coaches and support staff has been fantastic. Naman has been phemomenal. Zampa is a fantastic leg spinner, MS Dhoni had faith in him".
...
MS Dhoni: " It is tough one to lose close games, you have to see the positives, if we can still give a 5 per cent the lost games would have been different. New ball bowling was good and we did well to restrict them to 137. Their bowling attack attack can exploit the conditions more, we could not get enough runs up front, we kept losing wickets, one could have played through. Zampa was fantastic, we wanted to include him but could not because of the combinations, he gave us wickets in the middle overs. What is also important to test our bench strengths, next three games will be opportunities for the rest of the squad."
...
SRH started well with the ball, they nipped out Ajinkya Rahane and Usman Khawaja, but then George Bailey and Ravichandran Ashwin resurrected the innings, Bailey fell and Dhoni tried to take it deep, and hit a six in the final over to keep things afloat. He was run out, and the chase suffered, but kudos to Naman Ojha for sticking out that glove to hold on to the catch off the final over. SRH now lead the points table.
...
19.6 Nehra to Zampa, OUT! SRH WIN! Zampa can't finish off his day on the winning side. The ball moves away from him, he gets a leading edge that is caught by a diving Naman Ojha, airborne and all. He latches onto it and Warner roars in delight. WOW NAMAN OJHA, give him the man of the match already. Composure, footwork and lovely soft hands, exceptional. Nehra can thank his stars, oh no, he has to thank Naman Ojha.
...
19.5 Nehra to MS Dhoni, OUT! Dhoni has to depart! Ball creeps up on him , he pulls but just over the keeper. Sran throws from the short third man region to the strikers end, where Dhoni falls short. Top effort from Yuvraj Singh, who ran from point and collects the ball and dislodges the stumps. What presence of mind!
...
Fine leg is up!
...
19.4 Nehra to MS Dhoni, SIX! Low full toss, he connects and how! Uses his malleable wrists to hit it high and over to cow corner. Well well, Dhoni bangs, what is all the fuss about. 6 off 2 balls.
...
Dhoni!
...
19.3 Nehra to Perera, OUT! The old warhorse has struck! He gives length and width this time, Perera slices it up in the air. It goes right up and lands in the hands of Henriques at short cover. Pressure does strange things, a length ball in the slot, but Perea can only get it in the air. Henriques ice cool under it and pouches it with ease.
...
19.2 Nehra to MS Dhoni, 1run, yorker again on the off stick, Dhoni can only dig it out to cover. Inch perfect yorker from the veteran. Top bowling under pressure.
...
Third man is up!
...
19.1 Nehra to Perera,1 run, in-swinging yorker, he drives it hard to long on. Well that was in the slot, but Perera cannot get under that ball.
...
It is Ashish Nehra!
...
14 runs needed in the last over. Right down Dhoni's territory one would believe, but it is Perera on strike. Cannot rule him out too.
...
18.6 Mustafizur to Perera, 1 run, yorker on the off, he can just slice it to third man.
...
18.5 Mustafizur to Perera, 2 runs, gets a ball on the off, he holes it out but beyond three fielders at the cover fence. Runs back for two.
...
18.4 Mustafizur to MS Dhoni, 1 run, slaps a low full toss back, ricochets off the bowler's hand to short cover.
...
18.3 Mustafizur to MS Dhoni, no run, slower and closer to the off, Dhoni tries to work it to off but gets a thin edge which reaches Ojha on bounce.
...
18.2 Mustafizur to MS Dhoni, 2 runs, low full toss this time, he just pushes to Warner at long off. Desperation from Perera, who dives and makes his ground, will Dhoni will do it in singles and doubles?
...
18.1 Mustafizur to MS Dhoni, 2 runs, full ball, pushes calmly to deep cover for two. That is thunderous running by Dhoni and Perera, 2 out of nowhere.
...
Mustafizur now!
...
Big over, 22 needed now from the last 2 overs.
...
17.6 Kumar to MS Dhoni, 1 run, Dhoni advances but the ball angles in, pushes it past Bhuvi to retain strike.
...
17.5 Kumar to Perera, 1 run, yorker on the middle and off, Perera can only drive it to long on. Much much better from Bhuvi.
...
17.4 Kumar to MS Dhoni, 1 run, back of length angles in, he punches on the back foot to deep cover.
...
17.3 Kumar to MS Dhoni, FOUR! Bhuvi offers width and Dhoni has a hard slash, the ball flies off the bat and past a diving short third man. Why is Bhuvi not bowling yorkers, Warner is livid at the boundary ropes.
...
17.2 Kumar to Perera, 1 run, low full toss, catches the toe of the bat and reaches long off.
...
17.1 Kumar to Perera, SIX! Right in his slot, he muscles it with power over long on. That was all brute force, no where near the middle of the bat, but that bat swing and muscle helped the ball carry over the boundary.
...
17.1 Kumar to Perera, WIDE! Too much outside off. He'll have to rebowl.
...
Bhuvi!
...
Top over from Mustafizur, no boundaries conceded.
...
16.6 Mustafizur to Perera, 1 run, goes for a booming drive but gets a thick edge, the ball flies to Sran at third man.
...
16.5 Mustafizur to Perera, no run, right on his toes, he digs it back to the bowler who has a shy at the stumps.
...
16.4 Mustafizur to MS Dhoni, 1 run, low full toss again, Dhoni drags it to widish long on for one.
...
16.3 Mustafizur to Perera, 1 run, low full toss outside off, he drives it past the bowler and steals a single. Another attempt at the stumps, a direct hit there and Perera would have been short.
...
16.2 Mustafizur to MS Dhoni, 1 run, waits in his crease for the slow ball, gets it on the full and pushes it to mid off. That shot shows the impact of Mustafizur, Dhoni wants to play him out.
...
16.1 Mustafizur to Perera, 1 run, full ball on middle, plays across the wrong line and the ball goes to deep cover.
...
Mustafizur is back!
...
42 needed from the last 4 overs. With Dhoni and Perera at the crease, RPS should still believe.
...
15.6 Sran to Perera, 1 run, slow on the middle and keeps low, he pushes it to long on and retains strike.
...
15.5 Sran to MS Dhoni, 1 run, width to offer again, he hits it to deep cover to take a single.
...
15.4 Sran to MS Dhoni, SIX! Wide on off again, he goes for the mighty heave and deposits it over long off. Well brute force from MS, flat six, will the floodgates open now? The crowd expects it, Pune need it.
...
15.3 Sran to MS Dhoni, no run, goes for a half-hearted swoosh outside off, doesn't get bat on it. Dhoni cannot connect, Sran bowling it rather cleverly, wide of off stump.
...
15.2 Sran to Perera, 1 run, back of length outside off, he carves it to cover point and changes ends.
...
15.1 Sran to MS Dhoni, 1 run, short ball climbs up on him after pitching, somehow pulls it to the left of the keeper. High bouncer from Sran, full marks for effort goes to Sran.
...
Thisara Perera in!
...
14.6 Nehra to Tiwary, OUT! Nehra holds back in length, Tiwary goes for a big pull over midwicket but the ball balloons up. Dhawan gets in position at short midwicket and completes a simple catch. Well Tiwary should have expected that short ball after the swat previous ball, he was nowhere in position, and the old wine Nehra strikes.
...
14.5 Nehra to Tiwary, FOUR! Clears the front leg, gets in line and hits it straight over the bowler. Tiwary did not bother to run after that flat bat swat. They need someone to get the boundaries.
