Commentary

Punjab still in with a chance. That will be all from us for this game. This is Abhishek Purohit signing off for now. Join us for tomorrow's double header. Till then, it is good bye.

Dinesh Karthik is the Man of the Match. Karthik: "We always bank on Paul and Gilly to give us a good start, but they bowled well at the start. Depends on the situation, I try and see the field if I can get away with it, then I try all those silly shots. Preity said some good things to us, did not get down after five losses."

Adam Gilchrist: "I thought 200-plus was looking likely but we pegged them back. Really pleased with the bowlers and a comprehensive batting effort. It is always a happy environment when you are winning. McCullum and Mahela were flying but the bowlers and fielders stuck at it. We have a game or two in hand on most teams and might sneak up. Shaun Marsh is the dominator at the moment in our line-up but Dinesh was excellent."

Mahela Jayawardene: "We knew it was a small boundary, that is why we would have chased as well. 180 was a par score. We did not bowl well after picking up those early wickets. We haven't been consistent, we had our chance in this tournament. It is good to go up the order and enjoy myself which I have been doing. We need to pick ouselves up and finish off on a good note. We came back with those two wickets, it wasn't enough."

Hang on for the presentation

David Hussey: "glad we are putting a few wins together now. I think last ten overs our fielding and bowling was excellent. Dinesh and Marsh set us up in the game."

Punjab jump over Kochi to sixth position. RP looks very disappointed. It was Dinesh who did it with 69 off 33, along with Marsh. Kochi just cannot seem to win at 'home'.

Sreesanth to Hussey, FOUR runs, that'll help, it is Hussey with the boundary, shuffles and flicks a length ball high over midwicket,
