Pune Warriors beat Chennai Super Kings by 24 runs

Chennai, April 15: Pune Warriors bowlers kept their cool during slog overs as they shocked title contenders Chennai Super Kings comprehensively beating them by 24 runs in the Pepsi Indian Premier League on Monday.

Having managed 159 for five in 20 overs, courtesy Aaron Finch's 67 and Steven Smith's late surge, the Pune bowlers put up a commendable show keeping tight leash on a formidable CSK batting line-up restricting them to 135 for eight.

While Rahul Sharma (1/24) was brilliant in the middle overs, speedster Ashoke Dinda (2/34) bowled a brilliant 18th over in which he not only gave away only four runs but also removed Mahendra Singh Dhoni out of the equation.

While this Pune's second win in five matches, CSK tasted their second defeat at home, having lost to Mumbai Indians in their lung opener.
