That is it from us for this game. Have a look at Sid Ravindran's match report which is being updated. Abhishek Purohit signing off for the moment. Cheers

David Hussey is the Man of the Match

David Hussey: "He [Gurkeerat] is a real player for the future for us, made it look real easy. We showed our fighting qualities today. We got three big games, you never know, we could sneak into the finals."

Kumar Sangakkara: "We were poor with the ball at the back end and Huss and the young boy made us pay. [On being asked whether the dew made an impact] Not really, we were in control for most of the game but you need to hit your yorkers. You always bowl your best bowler in the penultimate bowler and get the run-rate high enough for the final over."

Hussey has an arm around Gurkeerat's neck, the Punjab team run onto the field. Gurkeerat gets a big hug from Adam Gilchrist. Punjab are alive this season. They have two tough games against Delhi and one against the defending champions Chennai, but for the moment, Gurkeerat and Hussey have kept them alive

Deccan had 82 to defend off six overs, 16 off the final over, and they could not. Have to feel for Shikhar Dhawan and Cameron White

Mamun: "At the end of the day, Deccan somehow manages to do it again."

shivam: "DC are more consistent than Malinga's yorkers. Hats Off!!!"

no idea how that has gone for four, but it has, it was a mile outside off, Gurkeerat goes walking two miles outside off, he does not quite get bat on it as he tries to scoop it, probably bit of thigh pad as well as it scoots past the keeper on the leg side
