END OF OVER:
19 | 15 Runs 1 Wkt | KXIP: 167/3

So Punjab finally open their account and it will be one relieved camp. What I really liked about this chase was here was no element of panic even when they were behind the eight ball just after the halfway stage. Bopara stuck to his task and it was almost as if they knew Bangalore would crumble and let loose on or two really expensive overs. Praveen's 19-run leak was the turning point and they proceeded to take 30 off the next two.

Ideally, they should have continued with Vinay Kumar and Ryder should have been allowed to continue after his first over. Not the best day in the office for Pietersen the batsman and the captain. We will bring you the presentation shortly.

Pietersen: "When u drop some u make it had for yourself. It's not nice losing and we'll try and turn it around. My little team-mate from England Bopara played like a super star."

Yuvraj: "Thank God no rain! 169 was a fair total to chase and the wicket was good. Ravi was outstanding and he kept the momentum. All our experiments worked."

Bopara is the Man of the Match: "We decided not to lose a wicket to Kumble so it was just a question of slamming it at the end. The ball was skidding through."

Thanks for joining us. We have the weekend double header tomorrow - Chennai take on Kolkata and Deccan take on Mumbai. Cheers!

Kallis to Yuvraj Singh, SIX runs, and he finishes it off with a stylish six down long-off! He gets forward and scoops it effortlessly over long-off, that's the 100th six of the tournament

Kallis to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR runs, all timing! And power too, it's a full delivery on the pads and Yuvraj chips it really hard past the bowler and long-on fails to get t it

Kallis to Jayawardene, 1 run, tucks him for room and Jayawardene adjusts well by tapping it softly in front of cover and setting off quickly
