Ashok Dinda bowled a superb spell, conceding only 23 runs off his 4 overs and scalping three wickets. In response, Rising Pune Supergiants lost Ajinkya Rahane for a duck, but thereafter it was Steven Smith leading the way with an unbeaten 46 off 36 balls as they reached 94 losing only three wickets. It started raining heavily, Rising Pune Supergiants were ahead by 34 runs on the Duckworth Lewis scale, and the match had to be called off. The Rising Pune Supergiants were declared the winners based on the D/L method calculations. Ashok Dinda received the Man of the Match award.
