Man of the match Rohit Sharma
David Hussey. "Little bit of improvement needed with the bat. We showed the never-say-attitude, though. Little bit disappointed with my last over. Probably cost us the game."
"I am expecting those guys to do cake ceremony for me," says Rohit Sharma, whose birthday has started. Asad Rauf has already gifted him. "I wanted Mali to come and finish off the game. That's the one thing we always talk about, we want to be the best fielding side in this competition. Even the bowling was good with the dew coming in. I keep it simple: stay still as long as possible and if the ball is there to be hit, hit it."
Adam Gilchrist is NOT playing for Punjab in this match. David Hussey will captain. It seems like Shaun Marsh might get a game today.
