2013-05-20 00:00

PUNE — A superb all-round performance by Angelo Mathews and a captain’s knock by Aaron Finch powered the Pune Warriors to an emphatic 38-run win against the Delhi Daredevils in the clash of the Indian Premier League basement dwellers at the Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium in Pune yesterday.

Mathews scored 30 off 22 balls and featured in a 71-run partnership off 38 balls with Luke Wright (44 off 23 balls) for the fifth wicket in a spectacular late onslaught to propel the hosts to 172 for five.

Mathews also spearheaded a much-improved bowling performance by Pune in the death overs, and finished with 3/14 in three overs. — SuperSport.
