It wasn't a big total but Punjab made a good attempt to defend it but were thwarted by the gritty Gambhir and Mithun Manhas who stayed till the end to take them home.

That's it from us. Thanks for logging on. Good bye and good luck.

Abdulla to Manhas, 2 runs
Dropped by Irfan at long-off. What a clanger! It was the slower one and Manhas ended up scooping it high towards long-off where Irfan makes a right royal mess of it

Sreesanth to Manhas, 1 run
on the middle stump line, good tight line and length ,swatted to midwicket for a quick single

Cramps for Gambhir? He is down on the ground, takes off his pad and gets some treatment ... he ran really hard for the second run there and must have cramped up. Play held up.

Sreesanth to Manhas, 2 runs
short in length, bounces over middle, stump line, mistimes the pull towards long-on and since the ball traveled slowly, Gambhir pushes for the second run
17.4
Sreesanth to Manhas, no run
swing and a miss. Length delivery shaping away from the off stump, Manhas can't connect. Two good overs so far ...

Sreesanth to Gambhir, FOUR runs
Inside edge to the boundary. Gambhir clears the front foot and went for a big swing across the line .. not a judicious attempt but he gets lucky
