Huge round of hugs in the Punjab camp. Preity Zinta of hugging fame is naturally delighted. Lee has certainly made a huge difference with bat and ball. Jayawardene set it up and the result could've gone either way when he was dismissed. Yuvraj and Sangakkara got a good stand going before both threw it away with silly shots in the same over.

So Punjab move to No.5 and share points with Deccan, who are one place above.

Presentation time.

Gilchrist: "We should have closed it out, but another exciting game. It was a funny wicket, it perhaps came on a lot better later on. We didn't quite execute a few deliveries towards the end. But an intriguing contest."

Yuvraj: "I was very cross with my shot and we needed one partnership and Irfan and Mahela did that. Lee really helped us. Jayawardene has always done well under pressure but unfortunately he has pulled a hamstring."

Jayawardene is the Man of the Match. "The hamstring's not doing that great. I knew I had to be there till the end. I knew we needed big boundaries. Me and Irfan spoke about batting another five overs. We were never behind the 8-ball."

That's it from me for the moment. Stay on for Rajasthan v Chennai. Goodbye!

Singh to Chawla, FOUR runs, that's four runs less! RP bangs it in short and that too down the leg side so it allows a free swing of the arms, he hooks it just in front of the rope at fine leg

That six has put Punjab as the favourites. This has been on pulsating passage of play. Don't go anywhere! RP will bowl the final over
