S Sriram c Karthik b Chawla 4 (7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Kumar to Birt, SIX, bowls a shortish ball from a very short run up and Travis flat-bats it high over long-off. Crunchy

Please hang on for the quotes from the post-match ceremony.

Hopes: "I am not sure luck had to do much with it tonight. Our fielding lost us this game. We have to take those chances. Tonight, it summed up our entire season."

Gilchrist: "It was hard to tell [what's a good score]. 140 was our initial thought but Shaun and Valthathy played well. Our seamers bowled well and Piyush was outstanding. He has come back and shown that he is a world-class bowler. He has great variation; his wrong un is lethal. There were some great catches; one or two blemishes but in general the enthusiasm was terrific. It was a great win, it will keep us alive and 30-run win will help net run rate. We will now think about Bangalore, who are the form team of the tournament."

Man of the Match is Chawla: "After missing out, I needed to come back strongly and I am happy. The little extra bounce helped me a lot. I wasn't nervous; I have played at this wicket before and knew that it will help the spinners a little bit. As a legspinner, my job is to pick up wickets. It was nice to see the catches taken by Mandeep and Ryan."

Please hop on to the second IPL game or the Test between West Indies and Pakistan. Or both. Good bye
