At Durban, April 29, 2009 (floodlit). Kings XI Punjab won by three runs. Toss: Kings XI Punjab. Kings XI Punjab 119-8 (20 overs) (K. C. Sangakkara 45*); Mumbai Indians 116-7 (20 overs) (J-P. Duminy 59). Kings XI Punjab 2 pts. Man of the Match: K. C. Sangakkara.
Tight bowling and athletic fielding - plus Yusuf Abdulla (4-0-19-2) staying calm in the pressurecooker last over when 12 were needed - allowed Punjab to defend a modest total against Mumbai, whose later batsmen were again found wanting after the early departures of Jayasuriya (first ball) and Tendulkar (for one).
