That completes the formalities of today's Indian T20 League action. Mumbai maintained their winning momentum earlier in the day while Gujarat finally opened their account this season. Problems to ponder for both Bangalore and Pune who have three losses each from four games. Hope you enjoyed our coverage of the double header. Another one coming up tomorrow with Kolkata hosting Hyderabad at 1600 local (1030 GMT) which will be followed by Delhi hosting Punjab at 2000 local (1430 GMT). Do join us for those games. Until then, it's goodbye from us.
Man of the Match, Andrew Tye feels that it is a good format (T20). Mentions that traditionally he would like to play Test cricket but he is happy with his efforts. Says that Streaky (Heath Streak) is a really good coach and he backs them. Feels that Brad Hodge is really good too and he lets them do their job. Reckons that conditions are different everywhere and one needs to adjust according to the track. Ends by saying that the knuckle ball is his favourite.
Gujarat skipper, Suresh Raina feels that when one loses two games in a row, it is difficult to come back but they did well. Adds that AJ (Andrew Tye) bowled really well. Opines that he is a smart bowler and his fifer proved to be match-winning for them. Mentions that Roy missed out today but Baz (Brendon McCullum) and Smith did the job for them. Ends by saying that it is his 150th game and he couldn't have asked more from his boys.
Pune skipper, Steven Smith says that the wicket didn't change much in the course of 40 overs. Feels that they lost wickets in clusters and couldn't get the big hits in the end. Adds that the pitch played better in the second half than they thought it will and adds that they were 20 runs short. Mentions that Dwayne Smith and Brendon McCullum played really well and they failed to stop them. Reckons that it is not an easy task for a new franchise and Gujarat is in the same boat as them. Ends by saying that they will strive to keep improving.
Pune were definitely 10-15 runs short at the break but they did try. In fact, their largely new-look bowling unit did a decent job but were let down by their premier bowler Tahir who had a shocker of a day. Ferguson was a bit expensive too on debut but he showed promise. The losing streak for Pune stretches to three now while there is some relief in the Gujarat camp. Their bowlers led by a sensational fifer from Tye on debut, did great in the back end of the innings to keep Pune to 171 after the visitors looked like getting 200 at one stage.
A comfortable run chase for Gujarat eventually. It was wonderfully set up by McCullum and Smith who came together to open for the first time this season and the result was absolute carnage. Their opening stand virtually killed the chase and although Pune picked up a few wickets to slow the proceedings, Gujarat weren't to be denied. Skipper Raina smartly controlled the chase and along with Finch, finished off things duly with two overs to spare.

FOUR! DROPPED! Tahir's having a nightmarish outing. First the expensive spell and now puts down a simple chance at fine leg. Fullish ball around middle, Finch shuffles a bit and propels with a strong bottom hand towards fine leg where the chance is put down. What's worse, it's gone to the fence as well. Elementary mistakes continue to haunt Pune.

FOUR! More runs! Fuller and on leg stump, easy for Raina who sweeps it away to the deep square leg fence for a boundary. That's a good shot and Gujarat are in a hurry to finish the game now.
Finch and Raina are dominating the proceedings. Looks like it will be a cakewalk for the hosts from here but can the visitors pull off something magical?

Imran Tahir To Suresh Raina
FOUR! LOVELY FROM RAINA! He's just timing and placing it so well today. Floated outside off, Raina lofts it cleanly over the covers. Once again the placement is so good and it beats Smith at long off comfortably for a boundary. This over has more or else settled the result. A rare disastrous day for Tahir.

Rahul Chahar To Dinesh Karthik
NOT OUT! Karthik's foot was in the crease firmly. Lovely ball from Chahar though, lures Karthik into the push and the ball goes past the outside edge. Sharp work from Dhoni and the umpires want to check it upstairs. Dinesh's foot was firmly grounded though.
They are going upstairs to check a stumping. Karthik looks calm. Dhoni seems a bit interested.

OUT! CHAHAR STRIKES! He seems to be enjoying the spotlight at the moment. First that excellent stop in the last over and now has taken a big wicket here. Sees McCullum giving the charge and drops the leg break slightly shorter. The Kiwi goes through with the big shot and is beaten by the turn completely. Regulation stumping for Dhoni who makes no mistake. Can Pune build on this breakthrough? Gujarat need 70 from 53.

EXCELLENT FROM CHAHAR! Technically a dropped catch but he saved a maximum there. An incredible scoop shot from McCullum to start with and it went high over the keeper. Chahar from third man raced to his left and took the catch initially but the momentum was taking him over the ropes. He jumped midair and just parried the ball back into play. They checked upstairs and it was indeed a clean stop from the young leggie. Two more to the total.

Shardul Thakur To Brendon McCullum
Good change of pace outside off, McCullum was shaping for a big shot but has to bail out due to the lack of pace.

Shardul Thakur To Brendon McCullum
DROPPED! That was a really tough chance! Low full toss outside off, McCullum drills it back towards Thakur. He looks to take it with his left hand but the ball hits his hand and deflects towards mid off. That must have hurt!

Shardul Thakur To Brendon McCullum
FOUR! Cracked! On a shorter length in line of the stumps, McCullum clobbers it over mid-wicket for a boundary. He is looking dangerous.

Shardul Thakur To Dwayne Smith
A shout for an LBW turned down! Good length delivery angling in, Smith looks to clip it but gets an inside edge onto his pads and the ball rolls towards covers. The umpire is not interested in the appeal and signals it as a run.

Lockie Ferguson To Brendon McCullum
SIX! That's a special shot! Bowls the slower delivery on a back of a length around off, McCullum backs away and forces it over covers for a maximum. He hit that flat and with brute force.

Lockie Ferguson To Brendon McCullum
Fuller length delivery at 149 clicks and shaping in sharply, McCullum makes room and looks to play it across but is hurried on by the pace to get pinged on the pads. No real appeal for LBW as it was heading down leg.

Lockie Ferguson To Brendon McCullum
Ferguson angles in a back of a length delivery to McCullum who backs away and can only place it to point.
The debutant, LOCKIE FERGUSON to bowl from the other end.

Ankit Sharma To Dwayne Smith
FOUR! Streaky way to get off the mark! Tossed up on middle, Smith goes for the big heave across the line but drags it of the inner half towards square leg. It is wide of the fielder and races away to the fence.
We are ready to get underway. DWAYNE SMITH and BRENDON MCCULLUM to open the batting for Gujarat. ANKIT SHARMA to start off with the new ball. Here we go...
