Smith guided his team to a seven-wicket win over Mumbai Indians in their opening match, scoring an unbeaten 84 off 54 balls. Dhoni, Tahir and captain Steven Smith, at first slip, all went up in a loud appeal which umpire S Ravi turned down, probably because the ball struck Pollard's bat just after it had struck the pad, leading to some doubt.

West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard produced a cameo but bowled a poor last over as his Mumbai Indians tasted defeat with a seven-wicket loss to Rising Pune Supergiant, in the second game of the new Indian Premier League season here Thursday. Dinda had a day to forget, leaking 57 runs from his four overs and feeling the wrath of a rampaging Hardik Pandya (35no). Pune had invested AUD$2.8m in the allrounder and things got off to a shaky start as compatriot Buttler sent him for consecutive sixes in his first over.

Asked to reflect on what this team has done for SC basketball, America's most intense coach needed 30 seconds to compose himself. The Bulldogs needed to be good, as SC found its own success offensively and lay in wait for its inevitable second-half run.

Pollard conceded just three runs off his first three balls, but Smith finished a thrilling match with two sixes.

Also instrumental in the chase was Indian opener Ajinkya Rahane, who contributed 60 off 34 before being caught by Nitish Rana off the bowling of Tim Southee.

Trump suggests Susan Rice unmasking requests may be criminal
Furthermore she said that she didn't leak any names. "She should not have time to be unmasking individuals having conversations". Trump says in the interview he thinks the Susan Rice allegations will be "one of the big stories of our time ".

In his next over, Tahir removed opposition captain Rohit Sharma for three and then the risky Buttler for 38, who was unlucky to be given out lbw, to reduce Mumbai to 62-3 and underline his value as a wicket-taking bowler. Pandya remained not out at 35 from 15 balls (1×4; 4×6) as Mumbai added 64 runs in the last five overs. Smith then turned to South Africa's Imran Tahir (3-28) much earlier than he would've preferred, with the wrist-spinner employing a leg-stump line that Patel picked off.

Dhoni might have left captaincy from other formats of the game, but there is a lot of criticism for not naming him captain in the current season of IPL. The wicket of Ben Stokes (21) saw Pune needing close to 10 an over and it all boiled down to the final over when they needed 13 runs.
