That wraps up the proceedings at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Hyderabad, and the IPL caravan now moves to Delhi where the Delhi Daredevils take on the Gujarat Lions. We hope to have your company for that match as well. Till then, it's good bye and goodnight!
...
"The wicket was good for fast bowlers and I maintained the lines and lengths. Dhoni always helps me to bowl well. I am a big Ronaldo fan and that's why that celebration," says Dinda, the MOTM!
...
Ashoke Dinda has been adjudged as the Man of the Match!
...
"We had won only one of the first 5 games and we were not even in the middle of the table. 4 point look better than 2 and there are a lot of teams with 4 points. The bowlers exploited the conditions well, Ashwin bowled the way he bowls to bowl. When we have wickets in the first 6 overs, spinners have the license to bowl freely in the middle overs. There are quite a few average to slow fielders in the side. But today the ball went to the good fielders and quite a few catches were taken," says MS DHONI.
...
"For our standards this is something that we don't expect of ourselves. Things didn't go right at all tonight. Boys tried hard. We lost wickets trying to get the momentum early on. Looking forward to the two home games. YUVRAJ is close (to selection) and let's see what the selectors say. Really appreciate the fans and their support," says DAVID WARNER.
...
So, Steve Smith and Faf du Plessis take their side home with consummate ease. Rahane's wicket had sent some jitters early on, but Smith and Du Plessis made sure that there were no hiccups from thereon and guided their team past the DLS total. (Not that they knew of it.)
...
The umpires and the two captains are now in a huddle, and they have decided to call off the match. The RISING PUNE SUPERGIANTS have WON the game by 34 runs, courtesy the DLS Method!
...
It does not look as if the match will resume. Looking too grim at the moment.
...
12:15 AM (IST) is the cut-off time for this game. Which means that we have about 20 minutes for the rain to stop and the game to resume.
...
Rising Pune Supergiants are 34 ahead of the DLS par score.
...
Saurabh Tiwary walks out and quickly sprints back as it has started to rain heavily here! RPSG need 25 runs off 54 balls. It would be safe to say that Pune are way ahead of the D/L par score at the moment if it eventually comes down to that.
...
The players are rushing out of the ground. The rain has got heavy!
...
10.6 Ashish Nehra to MS Dhoni, OUT, short and wide and Dhoni smashes it off the middle of the bat but fails to keep it down, Tare pouches it at backward point. Tare makes up for his misfield early on in the innings by taking a superb low catch, diving to his left at point to dismiss Dhoni. Smart grab!
...
10.5 Ashish Nehra to Steve Smith, 1 run, back of a length and Smith drives it in the gap between short cover.
...
10.4 Ashish Nehra to Steve Smith, FOUR angled into the pads, Smith shuffles across and the ball kisses the bat just and that goes across to the fine leg fence. Nehra was interested and appealed too, but the umpire was not interested at all.
...
And... it has started drizzling! Again!
...
10.3 Ashish Nehra to Steve Smith, no run, back of a length on off and Smith dabs it to the off side.
...
10.2 Ashish Nehra to Steve Smith, no run, back of a length and Smith wants to pull that, misses the ball and the ball misses the stumps.
...
10.1 Ashish Nehra to Steve Smith, no run, back of a length and Smith pats it to short mid-wicket. Dhoni was looking for a single.
...
10.1 Ashish Nehra to Steve Smith, 1 WIDE, down the leg side. Too many wides today. Nehra is not getting it right at all.
...
8 runs from Henriques' over and the wicket of Faf, as Nehra comes back.
...
9.6 Moises Henriques to Steve Smith, 1 run, once again shuffles across and clips that ball to mid-wicket. He never misses that ball does Smith.
...
9.5 Moises Henriques to Steve Smith, 2 runs, on the pads and a tad full and clipped it past a diving short mid-wicket.
...
9.4 Moises Henriques to MS Dhoni, 1 run, full ball on off and Dhoni guides it to third man. The ball is still swinging for Henriques.
...
9.3 Moises Henriques to MS Dhoni, no run, full ball on off and Dhoni jams on it.
