Pune Warriors upsets Mumbai Indians
Pacer Ashok Dinda took four wickets as Pune Warriors upsets Mumbai Indians by 28-run win over in a low-scoring Indian Premier League match. The Warriors defended their total of 129 for nine with a clinical bowling effort on a Wankhede strip that assisted the spinners and pacers alike, restricting Mumbai to 100 for nine in the allotted 20 overs.
Mumbai who won against the defending champions Chennai Super Kings in the tournament opener must have definitely missed an injured Sachin Tendulkar not playing this match.
The visitors at the Wankhede, Mumbai reduced the home team to a sorry five for three at the end of the second over and tightened the noose gradually to come out on top. Dinda, the Warriors’ new recruit from Bengal, grabbed two wickets in his first over and then came back to add two more to finish with admirable figures of four for 18.
Mumbai skipper Harbhajan Singh, tried hard to surpass warriors total but in vain. He made a valiant 16 off 15 balls.
Well done Pune Warriors but way to go. This might just be a flick of fortune.
