Commentary

Quite an easy outing in the end. Preity Zinta is hugging everyone in sight. So Punjab pick up their second successive win and have given Lee and Katich a perfect send off. Delhi lost it early because they didn't quite get the start they were accustomed to. A couple of umpiring decisions bit them early on but couldn't quite push on. Katich led the way with a breezy half-century. As of now Punjab are at fifth position with 4 points.

We've had a few mails asking about our theater personality, Sreesanth. Yes, he's out on the field and looks sober!

Stay with us for the post-match presentation.

And yah, Preity hugs Yuvraj as he collects his maximum sixes award.

Sehwag: " Now everybody knows where they stand in this tournament. The middle order was tested. A lot of us were tested with the short deliveries." No hug for Sehwag. How sad...

Yuvraj: "We got the wickets at regular intervals. Lee and Pathan bowled good first spells. Having Mahela as the vice-captain has helped me out in the field."

Simon Katich is the Man of the Match: "It was the first time I faced Glenn McGrath in a match actually. Only faced him at the nets. I've thoroughly enjoyed the IPL. Hopefully we can get on a roll and win a few games."

That's it from us here. George Binoy will take you through the other match between Mumbai Indians and Deccan Chargers. Thanks for your mails. On behalf of Binoy George, this is Kanishkaa signing off. Cheers!

Mahesh to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, Yuvraj clubs this one past the bowler but there's protection at long-on

Can Yuvraj finish this off? Preity Zinta looks a little edgy
