14.6

Pathan to Patel, 1 run, Kochi have won it with five overs to spare. Parthiv runs this down to third man for the victory run.

Parthiv Patel: " I thought 170 will be a good score on this track but our bowlers bowled brilliantly to restrict them. We were very happy to contain them. Parameswaran bowled very well in the practice games in Kochi and he came here and impressed every one. Personally, I am happy with the way I am keeping right now. We needed momentum and this victory was badly needed for us."

Hang on for quotes from the presentation ceremony.

Sehwag: "This wicket was good to bat on and the way I started I thought 170-180 was a good total here. It's very difficult to defend 140 on this track. I heard the name of Parameshwaran and asked who he was. I was told that he is a new bowler from Kochi. He recovered well after that six and took the wicket. He is a good find for Kochi and for India also. Hopefully we will do well for the crowd, who have come out to support us."

Mahela: "We always knew we had the talent; we just needed to believe in ourselves. We didn't get some good tracks in Kochi; on this we batted brilliantly." On his run out: "I thought the umpire was going to give me out and so was late in getting back to the crease. Brilliant effort from the debutant Parameswaran. He bent his back and bowled well. He was a debutant but didn't let his nerves show."

Man of the match is Parameswaran. Sreesanth to translate. "I was very happy. thanks god and family for support. Says to play and pick up a wicket like Sehwag was great. even though he hit me for a six, i was confident that I could take his wicket."

That's it from us. Good bye and good luck
