Indian Premier League - 69th match

Kings XI Punjab v Mumbai Indians

Kings XI Punjab won by 50 runs

Five minutes to go.

Jeyarama Balan: "Gurkeerat in for Sathish??? What Sathish did wrong??? If you post this i will pay you 10000$ from my poker account :-P"

Show me the money.

shikhar sachdev: "As punjab cant make it to the playoffs (die hard supporter), and my grades have come down to an all time low because of the IPL, I finally want some success! Even my fantasy team is doing horrible... :("

Sai: "Whats common between Rohit Sharma, Pragyan Ojha, David Miller, T Suman, Harmeet Singh, Mandeep Singh, Sandeep Sharma etc. ? All of these were brought into limelight under Gilly's captaincy in IPL. Such an inspiring #legend."

Harish: "@Jeyarama Balan - I am from CBI, can i have your details please :)"

karthic_s: "MI should have given a chance to Punter as well. This could be his last season as well."

Toss, 3.30: "Definitely my final IPL match" says Adam Gilchrist. "Definitely my favourite place in the world to play."

Mumbai Indians have win the toss and they will bowl first. Sachin Tendulkar is not playing. Nathan Coulter-Nile and Rishi Dhawan are in. Ojha and Mitchell Johnson miss out for Mumbai. Rohit said Tendulkar still hadn't recovered from his hand injury.

One change for Punjab. Gurkeerat Singh comes in for R Sathish.

Ali Abdullah: "Why doesn't Rohit Sharma open the batting? Isn't he a good choice for an opener? He'll have more time at the crease to make big scores and he can play well in the first Powerplay with the field restrictions. Why?

Aamir: "As this is a "Dead Rubber" why don't Mumbai give chance to bench warmers like Blizzard, Franklin, Hughes, Oram what if Malinga & Pollard picks an injury in this match"

Gaurav Manchanda: "Good to see Coulter-Nile playing in this match, Dharamshala pitch is tailor-made for him. Very handy with the bat low down the order"

Paresh: "I think it is important for MI to win and finish on a high so the winning feeling remains when they meet CSK. Self belief is everything in sport and MI must go after Kings all guns blazing. The bigger the victory the better for them in the next game."

A maths guy: "@Mandar Teams played 14 matches each in 1st IPL. RR won 11 of them. So 11/14 =0.7857. While in IPL6, each team gets to play 16 of them. Even if they have 12 wins, 12/16 =0.75 . Hence RR's dominance is the first edition is yet to be matched."

Rajesh S: "the flick over the fine leg, the drive on the up, slog over mid wicket, perfect cover drive, awesome pulls and hooks... are u gonna stop showing these all Adam??.. The "Master of demolition" is playing his last ever match today. we'll miss you gilly..."

Yaseer Rizwan: "Hasan - He has agreed to play in carribean t20 league, CPL. Not his last game so.."

3.20pm: Good day and welcome to the coverage of Kings XI Punjab and Mumbai Indians in Dharamsala. It's Match 69. Feels like 99. Kings XI were knocked out yesterday when Rajasthan Royals lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad. Mumbai are already in the playoffs,so it's a dead rubber for them. You may read the preview for this game.

Hasan Kan: "I think this is the first match of this season which has no value, no matter who wins, MI will face CSK. Still i will watch for "The Legend Adam Gilchrist" this could be his last match."

No news yet on Sachin. But the toss is less than five minutes away.

Mandar: "No team has ever won 12 matches in any of the IPL seasons till date, Mumbai and Chennai both have a chance to claim the distinction today!"

Mukund: "Good show by Kings Batsmen, a tad too late perhaps. Their stars discovered form only at the fag end of the season. Sad, they could have made it to the play-offs. Their inconsistency made the difference. Now they are the bridge between the top performers and the 'bottomers'"
