Pin It



Deccan Chargers finally get to see their first win of the fifth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) as they beat Pune Warriors by 19 runs at the Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium.

It took an all-round effort by Deccan Chargers for their first win, having suffered five consecutive losses.

Pune Warriors, who were cheered by former skipper Yuvraj Singh from the dug out, suffered their second consecutive loss in the IPL and are now sixth with eight points from nine matches.

Opting to bat first, Deccan Chargers first put a challenging total of 177 for four in 20 overs after Cameron White top scored with 78 off 46 balls. White smashed five sixes and six fours and added impressive 75 runs for the fourth wicket with Jean Paul Duminy (26 not out) to take Chargers to lead the Deccan’s innings.

Deccan Chargers bowlers then churned out their most disciplined performance restricting Pune Warriors to 159 for seven in 20 overs.

Debutant pacer Ashish Reddy was the pick of the bowlers bagging two for 32 while South Africa Juan Theron also bagged two for 37.

Pune Warriors never got their chase on track as they lost wickets at regular intervals. Robin Uthappa was the top scorer with 29 while Australian all-rounder Steven Smith made 26.

Pune Warriors batsmen had to blame themselves for the loss as their batsmen got starts but could not convert them into big scores.
