Hi Guys,

Match 62, Do or Die match for Pune warriors, Win in this match will keep Pune’s chances alive (Mathematically at least). Sangakarra won the toss for one last time for this season, and decided to field first, Pune threw the game away after a very good start, as they crumbled from 30/0 in 4 overs to 45/5 in 8 overs. From then on, Yuvi tried to bring back the game, later Wayne Parnell helped on the same cause, to get Pune to 136/9 in 20 overs. Deccan’s top order found the form finally as all the four chipped in to finish of the hopes of Pune to make it to the play offs. Sangakarra will be a happy man to win the game just before leaving this season of IPL to England.
