Nehra handed the ball for the final over. Not surprising, given how handy the veteran Indian pacer has been with the ball in this tournament so far! Single off the first ball, and Dhoni is back on strike, facing Nehra. Brilliant bowling by Ashish, with Dhoni getting just a single off a yorker! OUT! Miscue off Perera's bat, and Henriques takes a simple catch near extra-cover to depart for 17 off 13! Superb final over by Nehra so far! 12 needed off three now, with Dhoni on strike! SIX! DHONI CLEARS WIDE LONG-ON! 

Can 'Captain Cool' finish it off today as well! Pressure on Nehra now! Six needed off the last two! OUT! Its all happening here at Vizag, and Dhoni is run-out for 30! No magical finish for him tonight! Top-edges over the wicketkeeper's head, with Sran collecting and throwing it towards the striker's end! Yuvi runs Dhoni out! Zampa, the hero from the previous innings, on strike for the final ball. Can he hit the winning six! No he doesn't! Outside edge off Zampa's bat off a full delivery outside off, and keeper Ojha takes a blinder to seal a dramatic four-run win for SRH! 

Hyderabad move to the top of the table! Meanwhile, it's nearly the end of the road for Pune!

Last over for Mustafizur, and Dhoni gets a double in the first over courtesy some excellent running between the wickets! Two more off the next ball, and the pressure is on Fizz right now. Intense battle between Dhoni and Mustafizur right now! Edge off the third ball off Dhoni's bat, and the ball rolls down to the keeper, who doesn't let it pass through this time. Hit hard in the fourth ball, and Mustafizur manages to get a hand to allow Dhoni to get only a single. TWO! Leading edge off Perera's bat, and the ball lands safely near deep extra-cover! Single off the last, and Perera's on strike for the final over. Meanwhile, Mustafizur finishes with figures of 0/26 from four overs.

Bhuvi into the attack for the 18th over, and starts off with a wide! SIX! Pulled away over long-on by Perera! Not middled, but Perera still manages to get enough power to clear the rope! FOUR! Turning out to be a nightmare for Bhuvi, and SRH! Outside edge off the top of Dhoni's bat, and the ball beats short third man! Three singles off the last three balls, with 15 coming off the 18th! Pune need another 22 from 12!

After 17 overs,Rising Pune Supergiants 101/5 ( MS Dhoni (C) (W) 11 , Thisara Perera 5)

SIX! Flat one off Dhoni's bat, and the skipper gets his first boundary off the innings. Meanwhile, Perera has joined him at the other end, and Pune's hopes are pinned on the duo to get them across the finish line. 100 up for the Supergiants in the 17th over, with Dhoni and Perera dealing in singles for the most part now. Good fielding by Sran at fine third man in the last ball of the 17th, saving three runs for his side. Pune need 37 off the last 18 balls! 

May 10, 2016 - 23:08 (IST)

After 15 overs,Rising Pune Supergiants 86/5 ( MS Dhoni (C) (W) 2 , )

FOUR! Ashwin gets the tempo going, getting his third boundary with a flick towards the leg side, beating short fine-leg! OUT! Ashwin is caught behind off Sran's bowling, with his entertaining cameo coming to an end, and out comes the Pune skipper Dhoni! 
FOUR! Hammered down the ground by Tiwary off Nehra. OUT! Nehra strikes back in the very next ball, with Tiwary botching a pull off a short ball to get caught by Dhawan at square-leg, departing 9 off 10 balls.

OUT! Ashwin's entertaining cameo comes to an end, as he is caught behind off Sran's bowling off a short delivery outside leg. The field umpire goes upstairs with the decision, but eventually rules him out. Ashwin departs for 29 off 25, as RPS lose their fourth wicket with 78 on board!  

May 10, 2016 - 22:54 (IST)

May 10, 2016 - 22:48 (IST)

After 12 overs,Rising Pune Supergiants 68/3 ( Ravichandran Ashwin 22 , )

Mustafizur is finally introduced in the 10th over, and the Fizz is bowling from the Dr. Vizzy end. 50 comes up for Pune in the 10th over with a single. Brilliant direct hit by Kane Williamson at backward point, but Bailey's bat is well within at the striker's end. Five off Fizz's first over. 

And some comedy in the subsequent over, with 'lucky' George surviving yet again! Brilliant stop by Yuvraj at gully, and he promptly throws it to the non-striker's end, Bailey almost halfway down the pitch. The ball however, pops out of Sran's hand to grant Bailey yet another life. FOUR! Pulled away like a pro by Ashwin! 

FOUR more for Ashwin, with the ball travelling between the keeper's legs after an inside edge off Ashwin's bat away towards the long-stop boundary! OUT! And Bailey's innings finally comes to an end! Top-edges a short delivery along middle from Henriques towards deep square-leg, where Nehra makes sure not to grant Bailey another life!

Bailey departs for 34 off 40, much to SRH skipper and his Aussie team-mate Warner's delight, as Pune lose their third wicket with 68 on board, also bringing an end to the 49-run third wicket stand. 

Pune need another 70 to win from 48, with seven wickets left in their kitty. Saurabh Tiwary is the new batsman.

PREVIEW: A struggling Rising Pune Supergiants (RPS) will aim to get their playoff hopes back on track with a win when they take on high-flying Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) match in Visakhapatnam on Tuesday.

Debutants Pune, after seven losses in 10 games, find themselves in the bottom half of the points table with just six points. Hyderabad, after a couple of dominating performances, are in the second spot with 12 points from nine games.

Pune come into match after losing to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by seven wickets. RCB skipper Virat Kohli hit a brilliant sentury to outclass the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led side.

On the other hand, Hyderabad will be high on confidence after thrashing defending champions Mumbai Indians in all departments of the game and winning the match by 85 runs on Sunday.

Dhoni has been left with a low-key side after star players Faf du Plessis, Kevin Pietersen, Steven Smith and Mitchell Marsh had to make their exit from the team due to injuries.

The side has failed to find the right combination which has resulted in a series of losses and currently find themselves in a place from where they have to win all matches to make it to the play-off stage.

The inclusion of Australia batsman Usman Khawaja and George Bailey haven’t made a big difference in the side’s fortunes.

Their bowlers have also been inconsistent in the tournament. Opener Ajinkya Rahane has been the lone warrior for them scoring 417 runs so far.

Dhoni, known to be calm and composed in pressure situations, will look to re-group and motivate his men to get back to winning ways on Tuesday.

Hyderabad, on the contrary, find themselves only a few steps away from making it to the last-four stage.

Being led by in-form batsman David Warner and his opening partner Shikhar Dhawan, the duo have made job easier for batsmen to follow in the middle and lower order with some good starts to the innings. The return of veteran batsman Yuvraj Singh after injury has strengthened their middle order.

The bowling attack of the Sunrisers comprising veteran Ashish Nehra, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Muztafizur Rahman has been the most consistent in the tournament so far.

The pace trio will aim to deliver the same against an inconsistent Pune side and take their team one step closer to play-off stage.
