Commentary

Take a bow, Rohit Sharma. This was a tough chase, and their two star overseas batsmen didn't do much, but Deccan have pulled off a five-wicket win that takes them to 14 points and fourth spot.

Suman: "When myself and Rohit were batting, we were targetting singles and to punish the loose deliveries. It was a true pitch for batsmen and bowlers, it came on nicely when the ball pitched on the grass."

Post-match presentation: Sangakkara: "We bowled too many half-tracker at crucial times, and they batted pretty well too. We batted extremely well too, Jayawardene batted superbly to take us to a good total. Dharamsala is an ideal game to hold more cricket, the people are lovely and supportive."

Gilchrist: "Definitely felt we were in it despite them putting on 170. It was coming onto the bat nicely, it was a beautiful track. Suman was fantastic, and so too Rohit Sharma, who has delivered for us consistently over the years. (about winning four in a row) I don't think I'm doing a lot right, but the team is doing great."

Rohit is the Man of the Match. "We knew the ground was small, and the track was good to bat on. Whenever the chips are down, I need to deliver by performing to my potential. Suman is batting well, he was good against Bangalore and Chennai as well, there's one more big game coming up, hopefully he does it there too."

Chennai fans will be disappointed with the result, as Deccan have now gone ahead of them. Go here to see the updated points table. Two more crucial games coming up tomorrow, see you then.
