The 66-run win is the second largest in the tournament in terms of runs. Preity Zinta is out on the field congratulating her team. It's been a comprehensive effort from Punjab. Sangakkara's 94 made him the leading runscorer of the tournament and set up a competitive total. Brett Lee's opening burst set Mumbai firmly on the back foot and Piyush Chawla's wily legspin sealed the deal.

Sreesanth's crying on the field for some reason. He's bawling in fact. VRV and Karan Goel are consoling him. Now Sangakkara also goes up to him. I wonder what that is about. Curiouser and curiouser.

Anyway Punjab have got on the scoreboard while Mumbai join Deccan Chargers as the only only teams without a win in three matches. A whole horde of players have hit one six each in this match so Sangakkara goes up to collect a cheque on their behalf.

The Man of the Match is also Sangakkara for his 94 which made the difference between the two sides. That's it from us at Cricinfo today. We'll be back for tomorrow's double header - Chennai Supe Kings take on Kolkata Knight Riders in Chennai while Bangalore Royal Challengers host Rajasthan Royal later in the evening.

Thank you for all your emails. I will let you know why Sreesanth was crying as soon as I find out. This is George Binoy signing off, cheers.
