That's all we have. Good night, and good luck

Presentation
Kumar Sangakkara is Man of the Match too "Finally a win at home. Piyush bowled magnificently. Irfan Pathan bowled really well too, and Love bowling that fantastic final over. Then with the start that Barath and Mahela gave us it was a good finish."

Sachin Tendulkar "The only thing that happened for us was the partnership between me and Rayudu, and we fell short by about 20 runs. Then they batted well. Two losses but long way to go, we have got more matches, and we have to make sure we play to our potential."

The never-ending fireworks suggest a World Cup has been won. So much for a green UNEP tournament! Anyway. Moving on. Mumbai have to wait some more to confirm their semi-final participation. And Punjab keep their remotest of outside chances alive. As Tushar writes in: "King's XI have reached Chandigarh from Mohali on their journey. Kathmandu abhi door hai (is still far away)..." You'll know the joke if you have followed this match from the beginning.
