17.1

Valthaty to Marsh, 1 run, Finally, they get a win. The hit over mid-on brought up the winning run.

Callum has a chat with Shaun Marsh as they walk off. Mitchell joins them.

We shall get you the quotes from the post-match ceremony very soon.

Gilchrist: "150 would have been a decent battle as it was getting slower and lower. We didn't build enough partnerships. I don't think we were unsure of how hard we go; we just took the wrong options. Myself ... took it a wrong option when Valthaty was going so well. Rahul Sharma bowled very well; all the bowlers did well. Both sides batted with lack of confidence. to take 18 overs ... We have to start winning. Last year I was in a team to win four in a row but we have to win one first."

Yuvraj Singh: "We were looking for that win. Fortunatlely or unfortunately it came at my home place. When I look at my team I can't imagine how we lost so many games with that talent. We just haven't clicked. We had energy on the field and didn't allow their batsmen to get away. 120 was a great bowling effort. The pitch was dry underneath and it was nice to get them to 120."

Where are you going from here? "Hyderabad!" Ravi Shaz clarifies and Yuvraj says, " we have to take confidence from this"

Man of the match is Rahul Sharma: "It feels very nice to get two successive man of the match award. Yuvraj has been supporting me a great deal. It feels good to do well for the match. I am just concentrating on basics and bowl wicket to wicket. For Adam Gilchrist the plan was to try to bowl few full deliveries and try a googly. It worked!"

Good bye and good luck
