END OF OVER:

The end of another superb game. Three in a row, since the Yusuf Pathan blitz last night. Abdulla held his nerve in the last over, and though for a moment he would have had his heart in his mouth, as Duminy smote him through the leg side, but the end result was what decided the match in Punjab's favour.

A target of 120 was achievable, but those two blows right at the top were critical. The departure of their two senior-most players in a matter of minutes immediately had an effect on Mumbai as the batsmen who followed struggled to get going. Duminy stood in the way, and proved his worth with a stodgy innings, and almost took his team past the last mile.

A typical one-day innings if you can call it, but so necessary under the circumstances his team had found itself. Nayar gave him solid support but was out to an audacious shot, Harbhajan was sucked in, and though Tiwary tried hard, he struggled to get past a diving Powar on both occasions as those runs saved made a massive difference to the outcome.

Stay tuned, folks. Will get you the details from the presentation shortly.

Mumbai bowled well to restrict Punjab, but if they have a glance at the scorecard, the 11 wides they conceded made all the difference to the final result. Punjab have overtaken Mumbai here to take second place on the points table.

Presentation time

Tendulkar: "After the first half we were in a good position to win. But we lost early wickets and all credit to Punjab. You need partnerships but they just didn't come. We lost wickets in a flurry."

Yuvraj: "I was nervous. We wanted to bowl Piyush in the 19th over to get the left-hander out. The wicket had turned slow, and therefore we used more spinners. Yusuf bowled a very good last over."

Sangakkara is the Man of the Match

Sanga: "I almost went with Yusuf in the penultimate over, but Chawla is one of the best legspinners from India. He came up and asked me if he could bowl, and did the job. The pitch was a little two paced and we fielded brilliantly. Everyone chipped in and it was a team effort."

That's all we have from here folks. Thanks for tuning in and sending us your feedback. Here's hoping for more days like this. Goodnight! Adios!
