Commentary

Abhishek Purohit signing off for the night. Cheers

Have a look at Sid Monga's report.

Phangiso is the Man of the Match. Phangiso: "It was a nice wicket to bowl on, one of those days where the ball came nicely out of the hand. It is one of those wickets, it was a bit slow, you got to slow up your pace."

Petersen: "Halfway through the game I thought we gave 15 runs too many. The batsmen stayed calm. Bodi played exceptionally well with McKenzie and the two young men finished it for us. It was a case of getting to the last three overs. Guys at the end showed some mettle and steel. Generally 10-15 overs is a sort of dead period, you tend to knock it around, but Gulam never allowed the rate to go beyond 10-11 runs an over."

Dhoni: "We got off to a very good start, we lost too many wickets in the middle, so we were not able to slog the way we could have, but we still got the score we wanted. I think 160 was a good score. The timing of the no-balls was crucial. Small things matter. All of a sudden the momentum shifted, they were able to score a lot more freely. The quicks were bowling well [so gave them three overs each at the start]."

Gulam Bodi does a little jig. Hugs all across the Lions camp. Alviro Petersen has one of his calm smiles on. Lions have gone up against two powerful IPL sides, and have come out on top.

Poor MS Dhoni, his bowlers continue to let him down, no matter which team he leads and what format he plays

Morkel to Symes, FOUR runs, Lions have done it, the dug out races to the middle, Symes cranks up to another length ball and deposits it to the deep midwicket rope, there is no stopping it this time

Morkel to Symes, FOUR runs, that will help the Lions, length ball around off, clubbed coolly past the non-striker, long off dives, in vain

Morkel to Morris, 1 run, wide one swinging away further, he reaches out to stab it past point

third man is back, fine leg is in

Lions have to back themselves to get nine off the final over from Albie. They have managed to get 21 off two from Bollinger and Hilfenhaus

Hilfenhaus to Symes, 2 runs, very fine stop at deep midwicket, it was slogged from outside off to that area, and the fielder slapped the ball back in on the bounce before going over the ropes
