Yuvraj Singh led the new franchise (Pune Warriors) to a great win against his old foes Kings XI Punjab. Gilly the new Kings XI Punjab captain won the toss and elected to bat. The early fall of captain himself was a big setback and the players who followed him never applied their minds and fell like a pack of cards.R McLaren was the star and stand out player of Kings XI Punjab. He scored a 50 of 43 balls which helped them to reach to some respectable total. They ended up scoring 112 runs in their alloted 20 overs.
In came Pune Warriors with a easy target to chase. The early dismissal of Grame Smith gave some ray of hope of Kings XI Punjab but some nice cameos by Ryder , Robin Uthappa , Yuvi and M Manhas saw the Pune Warriors home with a 7 wicket victory with 7 overs to spare. This is the first match for Pune Warriors in IPL 4 and they have opened their account in style.
