At Kimberley, May 9, 2009. Kings XI Punjab won by three wickets. Toss: Kings XI Punjab.
Deccan Chargers 168-5 (20 overs) (A. Symonds 60*, Y. Venugopal Rao 32); Kings XI Punjab
169-7 (19.5 overs) (S. Sohal 30, D. P. M. D. Jayawardene 43). Kings XI Punjab 2 pts. Man of the
Match: D. P. M. D. Jayawardene.
Playing his first game of the tournament, Andrew Symonds made an instant impact with a quickfire
60* from 36 balls, with four sixes and two fours, to set up a challenging target. Jayawardene looked
to be taking Punjab home before he was run out with 20 still wanted - but Brett Lee swung Ryan
Harris for a big six to settle any nerves.
