Punjab roar, bad day for Mumbai

Kings XI Punjab beat Mumbai Indians by 76 runs. Punjab won their 4th match in the ten they have played this IPL. Captain of Mumbai, Sachin admitted that it wasn't their day.

Mumbai are already through to the Playoffs but they must keep their winning momentum going on. Also 1st and 2nd positions in the league is quite beneficial, as they will get 2 chances to go to the final at Delhi.

Sourav Ganguly's Comeback

Sourav Ganguly scored an unbeaten knock of 32 from 32 balls, and led his side Pune Warriors to victory. This is the second consecutive win for Pune. If they win all their remaining games then they may have a chance in the Playoffs.

And Deccan's poor home record continues.
