Commentary

Presentation:

Rohit: "We didn't start off well. I thought it was chaseable. We kept losing wickets. Very difficult to come back. Plan was to see off the first 4-5 overs. I would like to congratulate him. We need to regroup. We got to leave the negatives out."

Gilchrist: "Harbhajan took my wicket many many times so I just wanted to mimic the reaction. Really well received by this fab crowd. 8 wins and 8 losses, that sums up our cricket the last three years. It will be interesting to see how careers go over the next few years. Happy to watch now and be entertained. Wonderful memories with Kings XI."

Azhar Mahmood is the Man of the Match: "I knew I was at 196 wickets in the last game. No.3 is a good number to bat on. I used the slower balls a lot. This Man of the Match is for my daughters. Quite fortunate to play under Gilchrist."

That's it from here. There will be another inspection in Bangalore at 8.10pm. That's if it doesn't rain between now and then. It's 7.55 as I write. Thanks for your company. Cheers!

End of match: Dhawal Kulkarni will not bat so it's victory to Kings XI. What a fitting moment for Gilchrist to depart. At least he had some fun in a dead rubber. He shares a laugh with the Mumbai players. He will take Harbhajan's case forever you reckon.

Gilchrist does a lap around the ground. It's not Kings XI's main home ground - it's Mohali, but the crowd loves him nevertheless. The whole team joins him.

Looks like the rain has delayed the toss in Bangalore. The rain has stopped but the groundstaff are in for a lot of work. That's not going to get underway too soon.

Aby Siby Kalappurayil: "So that means, Adam Gilchrist would end up his twenty20 career with 100% strike rate... Unbelievable"

Stay with us for the presentation. The host broadcasters are still discussing the dead rubber that was just completed, without a word on the status in Bangalore. Somebody send them a nudge, rather, a shove.

Gilchrist to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, Gilly bowls an innocuous off spinner and he gets a wicket first-ball! Harbhajan slogs one-handed, goes straight down Gurkeerat's throat at long-on, Gilly does the Gangnam! Rather the half Gangnam, charges off, leaps, you should have seen him celebrate!

The last over a mere formality. Believe it or not Gilchrist is bowling! Praveen Kumar to keep wicket. Not kidding

END OF OVER:

Azhar Mahmood to Harbhajan Singh, no run, another good yorker, outside the off stump and he fails to dig it out

Azhar Mahmood to Harbhajan Singh, no run, that's a good slower ball, swings and misses it

Azhar Mahmood to Malinga, 1 run, that was the slower one and he chips it towards mid-on

The rain has picked up in Bangalore so the toss will certainly be delayed

W
Azhar Mahmood to Coulter-Nile, OUT, the off stump is flattened! This was a inswinging yorker, tough to dig those out, Coulter-Nile jams his bat on the pitch and the off stump is down, that's his 200th wicket in T20
