Punjab will be happy with this. They've certainly given Mumbai plenty to think about by posting 189. At one stage it looked like they would have to settle for a par score of 160 but Pomersbach, and Marsh before him, ensured a competitive total. The offspinners were effective in parts but got too predictable by spraying everything full on the pads. Tendulkar may have missed a trick by not bringing in Jayasuriya onto bowl to mix things up and also not allotting the final over to Pollock. Do join us soon for the chase.

It's Nehra to bowl the final over. And Pollock still has one more over. Hmmm....

  • The attacking apprentice

    In an evening packed with drama and sub-plots that would make any primetime soap proud, Piyush Chawla's vital contribution to Kings XI Punjab's one-run win might easily be overlooked

  • Punjab sneak a one-run thriller

    A see-saw last over - which included a six, a four, a dropped catch and three run-outs - allowed Kings XI Punjab to end Mumbai Indians' six-match winning streak and boost their hopes for a place in the semi-finals
