Another disappointing show with the bat for Pune Warriors. This time batting first they scored just 99 runs and lost the match by 8 wickets.
Winning the toss Pune Warriors captain Angelo Mathews elected to bat first. But the batsmen continued their poor form and they lost the 1st wicket for just 1 run. By time they reach 50 half the side were back to the pavilion and they had played 13 overs! Among top five batsmen only Robin Uthappa scored 19 runs and Ross Taylor scored 15 runs. They lost 6th wicket at 53 and after that it was Abhishekh Nayer who along with the tale took the total to 99 runs. He was the top scorer with 25 runs off 26 balls. He got a bit support from Mitchell Marsh who scored 15 runs off 8 balls and helped the side to play out 20 overs. In the end Pune managed 99 runs losing 9 wickets. Praveen Kumar and Azhar Mahmood picked up 2 wickets each.
Chasing 100 runs in T20 cricket is not a difficult task even for those who have a weak batting lineup. Pune chased that down comfortably losing wickets of Adam Gilchrist and Mandeep Singh only. Gilchrist scored 10 runs while Mandeep scored 31 runs. Pune though bowled really well and they could have 3 or 4 more wickets if the fielders had taken chance. But just like the batting the fielding was also very poor for them and they dropped about half a dozen chances. Manan Vohra was unbeaten scoring 43 runs off 28 balls for KXIP as they ended the game with 46 balls sphere.
