The move to send Bravo up the order worked like a charm, and his breath-taking onslaught against Sreesanth demoralised Punjab.It's the Punjab batsmen who should take the blame for the defeat though, Punjab really struggled against the slow bowlers, and they are now in seventh place, below Bangalore on net run-rate.
For Mumbai, JP Duminy didn't need to bat but he contributed with his spin bowling, taking two wickets in an over. Harbhajan was superb as well, going for only nine runs in his four overs. Their efforts were backed-up by a flair-filled innings from Bravo and a confidence-boosting knock from Tendulkar, all of which means Mumbai are now in fourth spot.
Amar from India faces a conundrum. "My dad (an army officer) is from Rajasthan, my mother is from punjab. I was born in Hyderabad, grew up in Chennai and Bangalore. Went to college in Kolkota and work in Mumbai.
Who do i support? Delhi?"
Fariq from the US asks: "how do i check the pts table for the IPL. Is it alreday refreshed for this result?" Yes it is, you can see it here.
Post-match presentation: Yuvraj : "We didn't bat properly, except for Sunny. We didn't have enough runs on the board, we needed at least 150, Harbhajn, Duminy and Malinga bowled well and didn't give us opportunities to score, and Bravo played an amazing knock. We got to win all our games now, we have plenty of areas to work on." That was pretty candid from the Kings XI Punjab captain.
Sachin Tendulkar: Harbhajan and JP brought us back in the game, and we took some brilliant catches. We took wickets at regular intervals, that was the key to our success. Nothing work like victory, your body language becomes different, your intensity is different.
"We just wanted to change things at the top, and take the opposition by surprise, and Bravo played a fantastic knock."
The Man of the Match is Harbhajan Singh. "I'm very pleased with my performance today. We fielded very well today, we were up for it, and we knew it was an important match."
"My first two balls I was trying to bowl slow, and try to spin it away from the batsmen. That really set up my spell."
Thanks for all the mails and for joining us today. This is Siddarth Ravindran saying good night.
