Indian Premier League - 57th match

Kochi Tuskers Kerala v Kings XI Punjab

Kings XI Punjab won by 6 wickets (with 7 balls remaining)

Time for some action. Players are out in the middle. McCullum and Mahela to open for Kochi. Ryan Harris has the new ball

Siddharth: "Pretty shocked that David Hussey is still playing!! Why can't Gilly try David Miller or Mclaren??"

Kuldeep: "Today the match is just in front of my office. This is home ground for Kochi but i can see very few supporter for them ... what i can see is a lot of support of Punjab."

Ameen: "@vivek, Not to forget Tim paine and uthappa played for pune." And Paine did not keep wickets, amazing

Some minutes to go for the start. Enough to follow us on Twitter, @ESPNcricinfo.

Hugh: "THREE spinners? Have they SEEN Mahela Jayawardene play spin?"

Vivek: "Quite interesting to see so many teams having two wicketkeeper batsmen in the team. Kochi has McCullum and P Patel, Kings XI have Gilly and Karthik , Chennai have Dhoni and Saha and not to forget Mumbai playing Rayadu and Davey Jacobs for sometime."

Varun: "Race course road may not have but race course but Cars can always race on it." When it is not dug up, you mean

Kochi are going in with four fast bowlers. Punjab have three specialist spinners. Quite a contrast. SM Gavaskar feels that the Kochi side appears better equipped considering the conditions.

Hugh: "Glad to see Owais Shah getting a game - hopefully he can prove to England that he can still perform in the shorter formats."

Bhairav: "This will be remembered as battle of Indore. Whoever loses is out."

7.30 pm Toss: Adam Gilchrist wins the toss and Punjab will have a bowl

Gilchrist: "Looks like a good wicket, it is a small ground, there is some grass and the ball should come on to the bat." Piyush Chawla comes in for an ill Praveen Kumar

Jayawardene: "We would have chased as well as it is a small ground. We have to take one game at a time. Ramesh Powar goes out and Sreesanth comes back in. Michael Klinger is out and Owais Shah is in." Finally, Owais gets a game

7.20 pm Hello all, its time for the 57th match of the IPL. We have a new venue today, the Holkar Stadium in Indore.

The ground is sandwiched between MG Road and Race Course Road. While there is a statue of the Mahatma on MG Road, there is no race course on Race Course Road. Anyways, Kochi Tuckers Kerala and Kings XI Punjab have other things to bother about. More in the preview
