The second-biggest win in all IPL games, Punjab will be making Kolkata, who play day after tomorrow, a little anxious here. Four wins on the trot, the last of which has broken a seven-match winning streak for Bangalore, and how. For a team that has dominated the IPL in the last couple of weeks, this is some hammering. Gilchrist and Marsh set it up for Punjab in that superb stand, and the bowlers followed it up with a sound performance to ensure the win was secured by a big margin.

Punjab's net-run rate has boomed to +0.273. They are fifth in the points table still, but very much in the running now. Check it out on the series page.

We'll get you the details from the presentation in just a bit. In the meantime, check out Sriram Veera's bulletin for this game.

Virat Kohli: "Same result as the last game we played them, but different result this time. We didn't bowl well but all the shots they hit were clean shots, so we couldn't do much about that. I thought we could restrict them to 160 after the first six overs, but after that the next five overs I don't think we bowled very well. They also batted brilliantly, hats off to them. It's a good reality check, we needed something like to regroup, see our faults and correct them going forward."

Adam Gilchrist is also MOM, no kidding: "A pretty important win for us, it will boost our run-rate and we may need that to come into the equation. It's a bit of a surprise to be honest [the knock], but you need to keep trusting yourself. Twenty20 cricket is a funny game. Virat has got his whole cricketing life ahead of him and I'd say that to any youngster. It was a nicer batting track today, we felt it's a small ground and we might be able to make up for any slow overs early on. Marsh has also turned into a dominator. Once we got to the 10-11 over mark, the track had settled down and it was an intentional decision to keep going hard. We've got to win our next game, we've taken about half a run up in the net run-rate."

That's all we have for you today. Join us again tomorrow. Thanks for tuning in, Adios.
