So Punjab have chased down the target of 112 with relative ease on a sluggish pitch. "Punjab are turning out to be the giant killers!!!" shrieks Anand. Delhi failed to assess the pitch - slow, low and turning - quickly and lost crucial wickets to poor running. They failed to hit a six in their innings, and Punjab too also managed only two.

"It was slow, turning, you had to put your head down and play down the ground," says Yuvraj. "You get confidence from beating Mumbai and if you play well you can beat any team."

Gambhir: "Three run outs in a row, I've never had such an experience. We are not up to the mark, 111 on this track was not enough. We should have got 140 or 150. We can never get into the game with only 111 on the board. It's been [topsy turvy] with all the teams. None of the teams are in the semis as yet. We don't want to get into a situation where we need to win two out of two so the next game is very crucial for us."

Sangakkara: "We realised we're a good side and we shouldn't be in the position we put ourselves in. We just want to go forward and build on this. Chawla's given a masterclass in legspin bowling in this game, Irfan and Rusy Theron bowled well as well. As well as Ramesh Powar in the Powerplay."

The Man of the Match is Piyush Chawla. Well that's it from this game, but Rajasthan-Mumbai is beginning shortly. Join us for that one. Cheers.

Vettori to Barath, 1 run, that's it! Punjab have won. Barath goes down the track and hits to mid-on, he runs the single and has to sprint, Sehwag throws the ball to Vettori who doesn't collect cleanly, he would have been in anyway, it needed a direct hit
