Visakhapatnam: Rising Pune Supergiants had another reason to smile after they defeated Delhi Daredevils by 19 runs via D/L method in Indian Premier League 9.
It was Pune's fourth win in a tournament where they have struggled very badly.
There weren't too many sixes and boundaries in the match and here are some of the most talked about topics from the match:
Ashok Dinda's consistency: He has been a stand out performer for Pune this year. While the likes of Ishant Sharma, RP Singh, Irfan Pathan have warmed the benches for most part of the tournament, the Bengal pacer has bowled his heart out everytime he has been given the ball. Dinda claimed his second three-wicket haul of the tournament by picking three wickets against Delhi.
Adam Zampa's three-wicket haul: For those who thought that his six-wicket haul vs Sunrisers Hyderabad was a fluke, the Australian leggie proved them wrong with another brilliant spell – 3/21 vs DD. Zampa once again spun a web around the batsmen with his accuracy and flight.
Bailey's scary moment: The Australian was hit on the helmet by another Australian – Nathan Coulter Nile in the seventh over of the innings. Bailey was taken aback by a bouncer and his helmet went flying over the wickets though there was no damage done.
