Ciao and Good night....

Presentation Ceremony:

Ganguly: "We bowled well and also batted well towards the end. The late onslaught took us to 160 plus but it was certainly a 150 pitch. The crowd were fantastic and it has been the case in the IPL. Still a long way to go in the tournament."

Gilchrist: " We gave away 30 runs too many and ten minutes of madness toward the end of our bowling and bad calls towards the start of our batting cost us the game. We need to train hard and turn it around. We can go through a form slump in this kind of long tournament and our prime purpose is to arrest it and make a comeback."

Marlon Samuels is the Man of the Match for his all round performance.

Samuels: "The crowd were really good, it has been good playing with Pune Warriors. The ball was skidding on and we got an imposing total on board. We need to play hard cricket and that was what was discussed in the team meeting. First time we have had this atmosphere and it can't get any better than this."

Pune wins it's first match on its home turf. Kings XI never got going right from the beginning. Dinda started off well followed by Samuels and Rahul Sharma who spun a web around the Kings XI and never let them off to a flier.

Punjab's dug out have enough to ponder over as their team has been found wanting in all departments of their game.

Samuels to Bipul Sharma, FOUR runs, full toss, biffs it through extra cover and the ball goes racing away to the sweeper cover fence, Bipul sharma is playing his part here, compensating for the mauling he had received off his own bowling
