Mumbai had already finished third and Rajasthan are now confirmed seventh in the points table.

The visitors had needed to win this game to displace Chennai Super Kings from the fourth spot and instead made a dismal exit.

Pune ended a difficult season with a disappointing performance in front of their home crowd, never really getting on terms.
In their last league game of the Indian Premier League 2012, Delhi Daredevils beat Kings XI Punjab by six wickets at Dharmasala.
This result was an important one in determining the line-up for the play-offs. Delhi have topped the table with 22 points, while Mumbai have qualified as the third team. Kings XI have been knocked out of the running as the fourth spot is now dependent on Royal Challengers Bangalore match against Deccan Chargers tomorrow.

Adam Gilchrist guided the Kings XI Punjab to a massively important six-wicket win over the Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League 2012 in Dharmasala.
The victory keeps their slim chances of making the play-offs alive while it puts Chennai in a precarious position having completed their group fixtures.
Kolkata Knight Riders qualified for the Indian Premier League 2012 play-offs with an impressive 32-run win over the in-form Mumbai Indians.
