Ben Stokes' maiden IPL century powered Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) to a crucial five-wicket win over Gujarat Lions (GL) in an Indian Premier League game in Pune on Monday night. Gujarat Lions picking up three early wickets at the start of the Pune innings put the home team on the backfoot. However, patient batting from MS Dhoni and a brilliant century from Ben Stokes (103 not out) helped Pune overhaul the target and beat the Lions. For Gujarat, Basil Thampi finished with figures of 2 for 35. Ben Stokes was adjudged the Man of the Match. The win helps Pune maintain their fourth position in the points table while Gujarat are sixth. (SCORECARD)
Earlier, Tahir was once again the destroyer-in-chief for Pune as he put brakes on Gujarat's scoring and was ably assisted by Jaydev Unadkat, who bowled brilliantly at the death to help himself to three wickets.
