Rising Pune Supergiants severely dented Delhi Daredevils playoff hopes, with a nine-wicket win via Duckworth-Lewis in a rain-affected IPL clash. Cheap Air Max 2017 . Adam Zampa again starred for Pune, taking 3-21 two games after his stunning 6-19 in a four-run defeat to Sunrisers Hyderabad.Supergiants seamer Ashok Dinda (3-20) too was impressive with three wickets as Delhi managed only 121-6 - helped by Chris Morris (38no off 20 balls) taking 22 from the final over.Pune got off to a stirring start in reply, scoring 30 from the first three overs, and although Usman Khawaja (19 off 13) fell soon after, they were well ahead of the rate required when rain intervened twice in their run-chase.The second stoppage came with Pune 76-1 after 11 overs and no further play was possible, meaning the Supergiants, who cant qualify for the playoffs, at least move off the bottom of the table, while Delhi stay sixth, slipping further adrift of the top four.MS Dhonis decision to bowl first after winning the toss was rewarded when Dinda trapped the dangerous Quinton de Kock lbw in the third over - Delhi sluggishly only managing four runs from the first three.Karun Nair hit back-to-back boundaries in the fifth over to help his sides cause, before Dinda added a second victim in Shreyas Iyer.Nair steadily accumulated 41 from 43 balls, but batsmen continued to struggle at the other end - Zampa removing Sanju Samson (10) stumped and Rishabh Pant to a top-edged slog, before accounting for Nair too, albeit to a questionable lbw decision in the 14th over. MS Dhoni was rewarded when he won the toss and decided Rising Pune Supergiants should bowl first JP Duminy (14) fell in the penultimate over to Dinda, but Morris final-over assault - two fours and two sixes smashed from the last four balls - at least gave Delhi something to bowl at.Punes start with the bat was in stark contrast to Delhis, Khawaja smashing three fours off Zaheer Khan in the third over.He fell to Morris four balls later, but Ajinkya Rahane (42no off 36) and George Bailey (8no) cruised along despite the rain breaks and Pune eventually secured a well-deserved win.Catch more IPL action on Wednesday as play-off hunting Royal Challengers Bangalore play struggling Kings XI Punjab.

BALTIMORE -- Paul Blair, the eight-time Gold Glove centre fielder who helped the Baltimore Orioles win a pair of World Series titles while gliding to make catches that former teammates still marvel at more than four decades later, has died. He was 69. Blair died Thursday night at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore, according to a hospital spokeswoman. Blairs wife, Gloria, told The Baltimore Sun, that Blair played a round of golf with friends Thursday morning and later lost consciousness at a celebrity bowling tournament in Pikesville. "Paul was honestly too tired, but he never says no," Gloria Blair told the newspaper. "During a practice round, he threw two or three balls, then sat down and told a friend, I feel funny and kind of collapsed. He lost consciousness and they called 911 and the ambulance took him to (Sinai), but the doctors there told me they never got a pulse." A member of the Orioles Hall of Fame, the popular Blair patrolled the outfield from 1964-76, playing key parts when Baltimore won its first two World Series crowns in 1966 and 1970. He won two more titles with the New York Yankees in 1977 and 1978 and also played for Cincinnati. In an era before highlight reels were a daily staple on TV, Blair frequently made catches that became the talk of baseball. Thin and quick, he played with a flair -- at the end of an inning, he would tuck his glove up against his chest for a regal trot back to the dugout. "He played very shallow. People talked about how Willie Mays played shallow, and Paul did the same thing. He played with assuredness," Don Buford, an All-Star left fielder who played alongside Blair for five seasons in Baltimore, told The Associated Press late Thursday night. "When you talk about the greatest defensive centre fielders, he was right in the mix," Buford said. "With me in left and Frank Robinson in right, we played toward the lines and gave him a lot of room. He could really go get it." In 17 seasons in the majors, he hit .250 with 134 home runs, 620 RBIs and 171 stolen bases. Blair appeared in six World Series, two AAll-Star games and won Gold Gloves in 1967 and 1969-75. Nike Air Max 95 Sale. In the 1966 World Series, Blair homered for the only run in Baltimores Game 3 victory over Los Angeles. The underdog Orioles completed an unlikely sweep the next day, with Blair jumping high above the fence at Memorial Stadium to snare Jim Lefebvres bid for a tying home run in the eighth inning. It was a timely grab, too -- Blair had just been inserted in the game as a defensive replacement. Blair caught a routine fly by Lou Johnson with two runners on base for the final out in a 1-0 victory in Game 4, and leaped high in the air after the clinching grab to begin Baltimores celebration. Blair led the Orioles in the 1970 World Series with a .474 average in Baltimores five-game victory over Cincinnati. That year, he hit three home runs and had six RBIs in a game against the Chicago White Sox. Beaned by a pitch in late May that season, Blair came back from the injury to boost the Birds. Ever mindful of being hit in the face, he would shield his face at first base when retreating to the bag on pickoff throws. "It affected his hitting a little bit after that, but not his fielding," Buford said. Inducted into the Orioles Hall of Fame in 1984, Blair coached Fordham in 1983 and at Coppin State from 1998-2002. He had a heart attack in December 2009. Blair played baseball and basketball and ran track at Manual Arts High School in Los Angeles. Blair was originally drafted by the New York Mets and spent one season in their minor league system. The Orioles drafted him from the Mets in late 1962. He fit neatly into a team built on strong defence -- led by third baseman Brooks Robinson -- and pitching, and Baltimore reached the World Series four times in six years. He was surrounded by stars, yet a picture or drawing of Blair often made the cover of the Orioles game programs. Friendly in the clubhouse, he was called "Motormouth" for his constant banter. "Hed be talking about something, and maybe youd get two words in, and then hed be off starting another conversation," Buford recalled. ' ' '
