Kochi have spiced up the race for the play-offs with a big enough win against one of the tournament favourites. A couple of events made the difference: That surge from Hodge in the last over, and Gomez's double-strike to remove Kallis and Gambhir after an excellent start to the chase by the visitors. This is the last game to be played in Kochi this IPL and the home fans will head back satsfied. Join us in a bit for the presentation.

Gomez: "It's my best spell in this level. I stuck to my basics on a slow wicket. I wanted to keep my role going."

The presentation's in a bit from now. In the meantime, you could take a look at the points table on this page.

Gambhir: "156 is always a good total. We should have batted well in the middle overs, that's where we lost momentum. Till the time we reach the semis, you're always knocking at the door. Morgan is a quality player and he can win us one or two games before he leaves. That last over where Hodge hit those 22 runs made the difference."

Mahela: "It was a tough game, an important one as well. We needed to win it here as well, our last game in Kochi. We've encouraged the local boys to go out there and enjoy themselves. Hodge should bat up the order, those couple of overs made the difference."

Hodge is Man of the Match for his exploits that last over: "It's a different role for me, and it seems to be working. It's a big ground and a good total to defend is 156. I've been working at the gym a lot and doing my weights and so it paid off in that last over."

That's all folks, you can turn your attention now to the Deccan-Delhi game in Hyderabad. Until the next time, it's goodbye.

Singh to Lee, 1 run, OUT, pitched up to Lee, he drives it wide of long-off for a couple of runs, there's an appeal for a run-out but the throw was a wide one. Parthiv dived to take off the bails and it was enough to find Lee short, if only marginally. It is a run-out.
