Cuttack - Blistering half-centuries from Kumar Sangakkara and Cameron White helped Deccan Chargers score a 13-run win over Pune Warriors in the Indian Premier League on Tuesday.

Sangakkara scored 82 off 52 deliveries with two sixes and 10 fours while White got 74 off 45 with four sixes and four fours as Deccan amassed a huge 186-4 on a good batting pitch at the Barabati Stadium. Pune scored 173-5 in reply.

For Pune, Steven Smith slammed an unbeaten 47 to keep the team in contention after captain Sourav Ganguly (45) and Michael Clarke (41) had done the initial hard work.

Bottom-place Deccan's only previous win also came against Pune and it now has two wins from nine outings with six losses and a no-result. Pune has four wins and six losses from 10 outings.
