A superb knock by Jesse Ryder and all-round show from skipper Sourav Ganguly helped Pune Warriors register a comfortable 20-run win over Delhi Daredevils in an IPL match on Saturday.
Put into bat, Pune scored 192 for three --- courtesy 86 from Ryder, 41 from Ganguly and a cameo of 34 not out from Steven Smith.
Pune then successfully defended the total, restricting the Daredevils to 172 for seven. Credit should be given to Ganguly who bowled at a critical juncture and ended with impressive figures of two for 27, including the wicket of dangerman Kevin Pietersen.
Seamer Alfonso Thomas, playing his first match, did a fine job with figures of three for 22. This was Pune's fourth win from seven games.Image: Pune Warriors' Sourav Ganguly celebrates the dismissal of Delhi Daredevils Kevin Pietersen during their Indian Premier League (IPL) match in New Delhi, India, Saturday, April 21, 2012.Text: PTIImages: APScorecard IPL 2012
