David Hussey had called their defeat to Rajasthan Royals three days ago one of their worst IPL matches. They were better today: Mandeep leading the way with the bat, Praveen and Mahmood turning in good spells with the ball, and Hussey himself taking two big wickets in an over.

Shaun Marsh: "Nice to win after our last game, we thought it was a competitive score. Not sure why we are doing better away from home, we'd like to have more wins at home. We have to play well in the back end of the series."

Here's the latest points table. Looks like a five-way race for two spots.

SriSri: "Liked the fact that for the last ball, require run rate is: 162, close to the total of Kings XI"

Cricket-India on Charger's Indian batsmen: "Do they have Indian batsmen better than Parthiv to replace him? Ravi Teja aint bad...or how about Sudhindra as a bowling option? what do u have to lose, anyway?"

Presentation:

Kumar Sangakkara: "I thought the difference today was the bowling in the first four overs, we bowled too short on a wicket that still had something in it for the bowlers. Kings XI showed us how to bowl and where to bowl. Mandeep and Dave batted really well."

David Hussey: "I thought our batters set the tone, Mandeep is going from strength to strength, I think he's a future players in all three forms for India. We have two better spinners than me in the team, so more than happy with that. We haven't played too well at home, but we hope to win the reverse fixture."

Mandeep Singh is the Man of the Match: "Hussey has supported us a lot, he has shown a lot of faith in me. I'm really satisfied today, as from the beginning of the tournament I wanted to stay till the 15th over, and I got the runs for the team."

Here's Abhishek Purohit's match report.

Not the most exciting of finishes today, but the results are just what the tournament needed in terms of the play-off race.

Thanks for all the mails today, join us tomorrow for RCB v MI. Till then it's goodbye from Siddarth Ravindran and the rest of the gang from Cricinfo.
