Mandeep, miller stun Pune warriors
An unbeaten 128-run stand off 79 balls between Mandeep Singh and David Miller helped Kings XI Punjab beat Pune Warriors India seven wickets in an IPL match at PCA stadium on Sunday. Put into bat, Pune Warriors scored a mammoth 185 for four in their allotted overs. Kings XI overhauled their opponents’ score in 19.5 overs scoring 186 for three. Mandeep (77 not out) and Miller (80 not out) were the stars of the show as this victory took the hosts to fifth in the IPL standings. Pune with just two victories languish in eighth place tied on points with defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders. Aaron Finch top scored for the Warriors with 65 off 42 balls and received ample support from Robin Uthappa (37), Yuvraj Singh (34) and Luke Wright (34). Earlier, Finch and Uthappa got Pune off to a rollicking start with an 83-run partnership in just 63 balls. Yuvraj and Finch then kept the scoreboard ticking with some lusty blows.
