Steven Smith stabilized the innings with Manoj Tiwary after the fall of couple of wickets. Pune managed to score 74 in first 9 overs. At this juncture steve smith was caught infront of stumps. Manoj Tiwary was once again involved in partnership with Ben stokes. Stokes scores 33 in just 25 balls in which he cleared the ropes on two occasions.
