When he plays like this, you wonder if MS Dhoni writes his own scripts. For the most part it looked like he had set himself  too stiff a target, that even the finisher had miscalculated, particularly given his recent form. But he is back, and with a bang. If this keeps up, Pune could look a different side altogether.

After 20 overs,Rising Pune Supergiant 179/4 ( MS Dhoni (W) 61 , Manoj Tiwary 17)

Kaul to bowl the final over. DROPPED! Tiwary looks for the big hit, and Rashid drops a catch at the cow-corner boundary to allow the ball to run away for four runs. Gets a single next ball to hand the strike back to Dhoni. Just a single in the third ball of the over, after Dhoni guides an attempted yorker down towards fine-leg for a single. Another full-toss in the next ball, with Dhoni getting the strike back. Dhoni guides the penultimate ball towards wide long-on, and runs back for a second run. Two off one ball needed now! FOUR! And Dhoni finishes in style! A boundary towards extra-cover! 

Rising Pune Supergiant win by four wickets!

Apr 22, 2017 - 19:28 (IST)

This is MS Dhoni's fourth fifty-plus score against Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL which is the joint most by any batsman against the Hyderabad outfit in IPL. Virat Kohli has also scored four fifty-plus scores against Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL.

Apr 22, 2017 - 19:23 (IST)

After 19 overs,Rising Pune Supergiant 166/4 ( MS Dhoni (W) 54 , Manoj Tiwary 11)

Bhuvi starts off with a full delivery outside off, which is alled a wide by the umpire. Pressure on the bowler right now. FOUR! Bhuvneshwar fires a yorker along leg, and Dhoni flicks it away towards the backward square-leg boundary, before slashing the next ball towards the backward point boundary for back-to-back boundaries! SIX! What a way for MSD to bring up his half-century! Gets the big score after struggling for the most part in the tournament! Goes for a double in the last ball. Huge over by Bhuvneshwar, with 19 coming off it! 


Pune need 11 to win from 6 balls. 

Preview: A confident Sunrisers Hyderabad, on a two-match winning run, will face a rejuvenated Rising Pune Supergiant in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on Saturday.

Earlier this week, Hyderabad defeated Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Daredevils at home and now they play their third away match. They had lost their earlier two away matches.

And come Saturday, they will be keen to win the Pune clash so that they can take the confidence to their coming away games at Bengaluru and Mohali.

Australian Steven Smith-led Pune, who defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last match to end a three-match losing streak on Sunday, will be fresh and raring to go after a five-day break. Pune team, which has won two matches from five games, must have utilised the five-day break as a period to recharge their batteries and retrospect themselves with the middle campaign of the IPL about to reach.

To overcome a strong team like Hyderabad, Pune will have to put up a strong show with both the bat and the ball. Pune will be expecting Smith, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Ajinkya Rahane, Manoj Tiwary and Ben Stokes to fire in order to post a good total.

Pune's bowling, always the weak link, must be confident after restricting a powerful RCB batting line-up to 134/9 in pursuit of 162. A lot will depend on how veteran South African leg-spinner Imran Tahir performs.

Medium pacers Shardul Thakur, Jaydev Unadkat, Stokes and Daniel Christian will again need to raise the bar as they will be up against the likes of a top-heavy Hyderabad batting line-up, which features David Warner, Shikhar Dhawan and Kane Williamson. Australian left-handed opener Warner has been leading the way for them, having notched 239 run in six innings so far.

Williamson in the last match plundered 89 off 51 against Delhi Daredevils in his opening match of this edition. He was included because of the off-colour performances of Yuvraj Singh (96 runs) and Deepak Hooda (59 runs).

In Ashish Nehra and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Hyderabad have two of India's best shortest format medium pacers. Bhuvneshwar is currently the highest wicket-taker with 15 scalps. Meanwhile, Hyderabad's newly acquired Afghan spin pair of Rashid Khan and Mohammed Nabi has been impressive. But due to Williamson, Warner may leave Nabi out of the team.
