And that’s it. Maxwell’s 14-ball 32 helps Kings XI to a 6-wicket win for their first win of the season.

Over 18: 13 from R Ashwin. 144/4

Over 17: 13 from M Ashwin. 131/4

16.2 M Ashwin to Miller, OUT

That’s the third wicket for M Ashwin, he’s got Miller too! He tossed it up on middle stump, Miller made room early and went for the big shot down the ground, but he didn’t middle it. KP came under it easily at long-off

Over 16: 6 off Perera. 118/3

Over 15: 9 off the over and two wickets. 112/3

14.6 M Ashwin to Vijay, OUT

Oh, he’s gone, caught behind! Short, flat and turning away, Vijay cuts and gets an edge and Dhoni takes the catch with both gloves! Do Kings XI have something to worry about here?

14.1 M Ashwin to Marsh, OUT

That’s rattled his stumps! It was short, straight and flat on the stumps, Marsh made more room than was required to work it to the off side and missed the ball completely

Over 14: 3 from R Ashwin. 103/1

Over 13: 4 from Ankit and the much-needed wicket. 100/1

12.2 Ankit Sharma to Vohra, OUT

That’s an unnecessary sweep from Vohra for a straight delivery, it pitched right in front and he played across the line. Finger went up immediately

Over 12: 10 from M Ashwin. 96/0

Over 11: 15 from Perera’s first over. 86/0

Over 10: 7 from Pathan. 71/0

Over 9: 6 off Ankit Sharma. 64/0

Over 8: 4 from M Ashwin’s first over. 58/0

Over 7: 4 from Ankit Sharma. 54/0

Over 6: 7 from R Ashwin. 50/0

Over 5: 13 from Ishant. 43/0

Over 4: 4 from R Ashwin’s first over. 30/0

Over 3: 10 off Ishant. 26/0

Over 2: 13 from Ankit Sharma’s over. 16/0

Over 1: 3 off Ishant Sharma. KXIP 3/0

Over 20: Pune manage just three off the last over as three wickets fall. Du Plessis chief architect of Pune’s batting but it appears to be a below-par score.

19.2 Sharma to Dhoni, OUT

For so long the crowd had been waiting for Dhoni to get strike, so many comments had been poring in that Dhoni will do it in the slog overs and he slams a full toss straight to long-on!

19.1 Sharma to du Plessis, OUT

Slower ball does it as he removes Faf with a return catch. Back of the hand slower ball around leg stump, it wasn’t full for Faf to slog and he top-edged it very high for Mohit to get under it on the leg side. Good start to the over from Mohit

Over 19: 9 from Abbott. 149/4

Over 18: 9 from Mohit Sharma. 140/4

17.5 Sharma to Smith, OUT

Slower ball, Smith lofts it high and he’s gone! It was back of length legcutter around leg, Smith waited for it lofted it high on the off side and Miller got under it rather easily while coming in from the deep

Over 17: 15 from Abbott. 131/3

Over 16: 7 from Sahu. 116/3

Over 15: 8 conceded by Patel. 109/3

Over 14: 9 off Sahu. 101/3

Over 13: 5 conceded by Axar Patel. 92/3

Over 12: 5 runs off Sahu. 87/3

Over 11: 6 from Sandeep and the wicket of Perera. 82/3

10.1 Sandeep Sharma to Perera, OUT

Strikes first ball, Perera holes out to long-off! It wasn’t a great delivery - short and wide and going away further with the angle - Perera threw his bat at it and found long-off

Over 10: Just 3 from Maxwell’s first over. 76/2

Over 9: 8 conceded by Sharma as a strategic timeout is called. 73/2

Over 8: 12 from Abbott, but KP departs. 65/2

7.6 Abbott to Pietersen, OUT

Whattacatch, KP is gone! Full on the pads, KP flicks and Manan Vohra times his jump very well at midwicket to grab it with both hands over his head. That was going at a pretty good speed. They check for the no ball and it’s fine

Over 7: 4 conceded by Mohit Sharma. 53/1

Over 6: 11 off Sahu as well. 49/1

Over 5: 11 conceded by Sharma. 38/1

Over 4: 14 off Axar. 27/1

Over 3: 3 from the over and the wicket of Rahane. 13/1

2.1 Sandeep Sharma to Rahane, OUT

Off the inside edge and onto the stumps! Rahane walked across toward the off side a little bit and the ball probably nipped in just a bit, Rahane went for an uncharacteristic slog and only got an edge

Over 2: 6 conceded by Abbott. 10/0

Over 1: Four from Sandeep Sharma’s first over. Rising Pune 4/0

Rising Pune Supergiants captain MS Dhoni won the toss and opted to bat first against Kings XI Punab in their IPL match in Mohali on Sunday.
