Scorer: M Venkat Raghav | Commentator: Veera

Gilchrist smiles. Zinta laughs. PK of course never laughs. He just marches across.

Kushb: "Jayasuriya was partially correct.. it was one-sided match in favor of Kings XI Punjab.."

Please wait for the quotes.

Tendulkar: "It was one of the best tracks we have played on but it didn't just go our way. It was one of those days. We lost those wickets; there was a decision to make whether to continue at that run-rate or slow up. . there was a choice to be made up. We continued to be positive; it doesn't matter that wickets fell but ... "

Gilchrist: "It's a great turn around. Catches were dropped but otherwise it was good performance. It;s a funny world. it can change like this. We have got the foot in that door and hopefully it will keep open. We are back alive. I thought we were 15-20 runs short after the start ; fortunately Dinesh Karthik and couple of guys closed it."

Man of the match is Bhargav Bhatt: Preity Zinta to translate: "I just bowled my normal bowling and avoid repeating the mistakes from the previous games. It's like a dream to play with Gilchrist. I want to learn a lot from him. We will try 100% to reach the final four. We will just focus on our role and what we have to do."

Good bye and good luck.

Bhatt to Patel, OUT, Trapped in front! All over. Stunning collapse this. Low dipping full delivery and Munaf goes for the sweep. He misses and the umpire doesn't. The finger shoots up to the sky. Game over.

Bhatt to Kulkarni, OUT, Oh dear. yet another tame dismissal. He leaned forward to scoop it back to the bowler. Take it. Catch it. here it is.

Bhatt to Pollard, OUT, Stop the press and all that. They have caught a catch. Whoa! Pollard lifts this high. Very high. Shaun gets under it at long-on. The ball takes an eternity to come down. Shaun waits. The ball arrives and he gets his palms upwards towards the sky. Is it a good move? Will the ball pop out? Shouldn't he hold it the other way? Nope what he does works. The Australian way of taking it has done the trick.

Bhatt to Pollard, SIX runs, dropped again! This time from Ryan Harris. What a clanger. As Fred Trueman would have said, 'What's going OFF out there?!' Pollard pulls and Ryan settles under it at deep midwicket and palms it up and over.
