At Johannesburg, May 17, 2009. Kings XI Punjab won by one run. Toss: Deccan Chargers. Kings XI Punjab 134-7 (20 overs) (K. C. Sangakkara 56; R. P. Singh 3-26); Deccan Chargers 133-8 (20 overs) (R. G. Sharma 42; Yuvraj Singh 3-13). Kings XI Punjab 2 pts. Man of the Match: Yuvraj Singh.

Gilchrist and his men were back on the field only a few hours after their last-ball win over Kolkata, and they were again involved in another thriller: this time Rohit Sharma could not quite conjure victory, falling in the last over for a 26-ball 42. Four were needed from the last three balls from Irfan Pathan, but that proved beyond the tail. Earlier Yuvraj Singh had taken his second hat-trick of the tournament.
