That will be all from us for today. Join us for the Kolkata v Deccan game tomorrow, and read Sid Ravi's bulletin. This is Abhishek Purohit signing off. Cheers!

Wagh is the Man of the Match: "I have been working hard, DY Patil is good to bowl on, there is good bounce in the wicket, Alfonso and Parnell, we bowled as a unit. I was a bit nervous, lovely atmosphere at DY Patil."

Yuvraj: "Nice to get a first win, we picked up early wickets and set the momentum. We had plans, to bowl wicket to wicket, happy that we got the results. Mithun, I always back him, unfortunate not have played for India, but he did well for us today. First two years when I was captain of Kings, I took too much pressure, getting distracted on the field."

Gilchrist: "Poor allround performance, Ryan McLaren and Chawla had a good partnership, if we had them five down for 70-odd, who knows. We didn't step up at all today, long tournament to go, McLaren was outstanding."

Ryder: "I think the pitch was a lot quicker in the first half, good for us that we bowled first, it got a bit slower when we batted."

Hang on for the presentation.

Comprehensive win for Pune, they had too much firepower in the batting for Punjab to test them with 112. The bounce did Punjab in, they kept losing wickets to shots that were not on due to the extra bounce.

Xaideez: "Now surely he (Yuvi) wont get hug :P"

Nayar to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR runs, Yuvraj scythes this one through point, waited on it and put it away, that will be it, Pune begin the IPL on a winning note
Nayar to Yuvraj Singh, 1 wide, sees Yuvraj backing away outside leg and bowls it outside off, but very wide

13 | 15 Runs | PWI: 108/3 (5 runs required from 42 balls, RR: 8.30, RRR: 0.71)

Kumar to Uthappa, no run, looks to finish it with another swing on the leg side, but cannot connect this time
Kumar to Uthappa, SIX runs, Robbie in to the act, that;s what you do for dropping them dollies, you pay dearly, marginally short, and Uthappa swings it with the angle, way over deep midwicket, all timing
Kumar to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, now he pinches a single in front of cover
Kumar to Yuvraj Singh, SIX runs, Yuvi, just a tad short, that will do it, stands tall, and lifts it over long on, all the way
Kumar to Uthappa, 1 run, Uthappa gets adventurous, waltzes down the track, this one gets big on him, but he manages to pull it to deep midwicket
