  • So that's it from us for this match between Kolkata and Gujarat. The visitors have finally managed to get another win under their belt after a scintillating performance from their skipper Suresh Raina. Kolkata, on the other hand, will be unhappy as this is their first defeat this season at the Eden Gardens. Join us back tomorrow as we have two matches coming your way. Firstly, Pune take on Hyderabad in their very own backyard at 1600 local (1030GMT) and Delhi go to Mumbai to play at the Wankhede at 2000 local (1230GMT). Until then, goodbye and cheers!
  • Gujarat skipper and Man of the Match, Suresh Raina says that it was a really good wicket to bat on. Applauds James Faulkner, Praveen Kumar and Basil Thampi for the way they bowled in the death overs. Credits Ravindra Jadeja for supporting him in the middle. Also adds that it was a good team effort by the boys. Reckons that Robin Uthappa's wicket was very important as they got him out at the perfect time. Admits that he likes to chase targets as it always easy to plan your innings accordingly. Feels that their batting has been really good this season and they need to improve their bowling, especially in the first six overs. Ends by saying that he enjoyed batting in the middle today.
  • Kolkata skipper, Gautam Gambhir says that they batted really well. Admits that the visitors chased it down well and they took the game away from them in the first six overs. Fells that it was a really good wicket to bat on. Also says that you always want to chase against a side like Gujarat as they have a heavy batting line-up. Credits Gujarat for the way they hunted down the target and applauds Suresh Raina for his brilliant knock. (About their position in the table) Ends by saying that they are still in a good position and would have surely taken this position if it was offered to him at the start.
  • Kolkata were outplayed as they came out to bowl. They got wickets but not when it was really needed. The onslaught in the Powerplay and then the master stroke from Suresh Raina proved too much for them. Another place where they faltered was that they didn't put enough runs on the board, considering what a flying start Sunil Narine gave them. Robin Uthappa built on that but the middle order failed to capitalize and ultimately, the hosts ended up posting a total which wasn't enough.
  • A comfortable win for Gujarat, which isn't something you've heard quite often this season. And to sweeten it even more, they've beaten Kolkata away from home. The target was a fairly stiff one but a good start from their openers set it all up. There was a slight interruption due to rain, but then the skipper took it upon himself and scored a blistering 84. He got out just before the end but he had gotten his team in a comfortable position by then. Jadeja and Faulkner added the finishing touches and saw their side home.
  • 18.2FOUR! That's it and Gujarat have sealed it! Length delivery outside off, Jadeja slashes hard at it and gets it through the point region for a boundary. GUJARAT WIN BY 4 WICKETS AND 10 BALLS TO SPARE!
  • 18.1Faulkner cuts it towards third man for a single.
  • 17.6NOT OUT! Fuller into the pads, Faulkner clips it really fine down the leg side. The fielder from square leg gives it a chase and the batsmen run for a third. The throw is back to the keeper and Uthappa is quick to dislodge the bails. The players appeal and the umpire goes upstairs. Replays show that Jadeja had made it in time. So three runs taken. Gujarat just need 5 to win now with two over remaining. 183/6
  • And just as I said that, we have a run out appeal against Jadeja. Although it looks like he's home safely.
  • James Faulkner is the next man in. Gujarat need 8 to win off 13 balls. Seems comfortable enough, but you never know with this game...
  • 17.5OUT! Soft dismissal! Short delivery spinning away, Suresh Raina tries to cut it. Mistimes it towards the cover-point fielder. Pandey runs to his left and takes a good diving catch. A simply superb knock comes to an end. Maybe too late for Kolkata!
  • 17.4SIX! Gone, gone, goner! Tossed up outside leg, Raina gets low under it and smokes that into the stands.
  • 17.3Fuller into the pads, Jadeja clips it towards mid-wicket for a single. Kuldeep Yadav tracks that down.
  • 17.2Floated outside off, Jadeja punches it through cover-point for a single.

  • 15.6Jadeja stays in his crease and flicks it through the mid-wicket region. Calls for a second as the fielder takes time to reach it and does complete it easily. 155/5
  • That's a much needed boundary for Gujarat and even more so for Jadeja. He was getting frustrated a bit and that will relieve some pressure off him.
  • 15.5Dropped and SIX! Floated around off, Jadeja goes for the biggie. Does not time that well as he goes downtown. The ball flies towards the long on fielder. Suryakumar Yadav pouches it with a jump, sees himself crossing the rope so throws the back in play. Catches the ball again and then indicates it as a six. Replays show that when he jumped back, his feet had made contact with the ropes. Unlucky guy, but that's good sportsmanship showed by him. Jadeja is rewarded with a maximum.
  • 15.4Three impressive dots! Carrom ball around middle and leg, Jadeja pushes it back to the bowler.

  • 14.2Leg bye! Angling into the pads, Raina fails to clip it on the leg side. Hits him on the pads and the ball rolls away to the leg side. The batsmen run a single.
  • 14.1SIX! That's massive! Fuller delivery outside off, Raina stays in his crease and smokes that over the mid-wicket region for a biggie.
  • 30th Indian T20 League fifty for Suresh Raina!
  • 13.6Fifty! Raina has finally looked in a good touch after some matches and he will look to make it count today. Eased down to long off for a single. 133/5
  • 13.5FOUR! Lucky Raina! Floated up beautifully in the line of the stumps, Raina tries to play it really straight. Gets beaten and gets an inside edge which whizzes past the stumps for a boundary. Kuldeep is really unlucky there.
  • 13.4The batsman has swept that one through the leg side. The batsmen have run through for a single.

  • Ravindra Jadeja will be the new man in.
  • 12.4OUT! Umesh, you beauty! Bowled 'em! Fuller and straighter into the stumps at 141 kmph, the ball nips back a bit. Smith cannot get his bat down in time as he just gets a faint inside edge which goes onto his pads and then shatters the stumps. Smith has to walk back to the pavilion.
  • 12.3Another back of the hand slower one. On a good length into the pads, Raina clips it fine down the leg side for a single.
  • 12.2Back of the hand slower one, pitched outside off. Dwayne Smith heaves it over mid-wicket for a single.
  • 12.1Back of a length delivery to start with, Raina hops and clips it through square leg for a single.
  • Umesh Yadav is called into the bowling attack. A wicket here could seriously turn the tide in Kolkata's favour.
  • 11.6Shout for LBW! Wrong 'un around middle and leg, turning away. Smith goes to play another sweep shot but fails to make contact this time. Gets rapped on the pads and the players appeal. The umpire is not interested as it was surely not going on to hit the stumps. 69 needed off 48 balls. 119/4
  • 11.5FOUR! Straightaway into the action! Floated in the line of the stumps, Smith sits down and slog sweeps it through the mid-wicket region for a boundary.
  • Dwayne Smith is next in to bat.
  • 11.4OUT! Kuldeep Yadav strikes! Tossed up on leg this time, Ishan Kishan sits down and plays the sweep shot aerially. Manages to hit straight towards the fielder at deep backward square leg. Umesh Yadav gets under it and takes a fine catch. Ishan's struggle in the middle finally ends.

  • 11.2Raina camps back and punches it towards covers for a single.
  • 11.1FOUR! Deft! Quicker through the air, around off. Raina waits for it and plays it really fine past the keeper for a boundary. Narine put in a really bad effort there, tried to stop it with his foot when a dive was required. His skipper is furious at that effort, and understandably so.
  • 10.6Eased down to mid off for a single by Raina. 110/3
  • 10.5FOUR! Quick to react and Raina gets the reward! Sprayed into the pads, Raina makes room and pulls it powerfully through the fine leg region for a boundary.
  • 10.4Raina stays deep in his crease and defends it.
  • 10.3FOUR! Brilliant shot! Floated outside off, Raina plays the inside out with perfection, clears the cover region and the ball races away to the boundary.
  • 10.2Similar line and length, Ishan camps back and pulls it towards long on for a single.

  • Sunil Narine is called back for a bowl.

  • Kuldeep Yadav is introduced into the attack.
  • Time Out!
  • 8.6Brings the wrists into play and works it away into the vacant spaces in the mid-wicket region for a run. 96/3
  • 8.5Short of a length delivery from Chris, Ishan offers a back foot punch to covers for one run.
  • 8.4Loud shout for a caught behind and it's turned down. Shorter down the leg side, Kishan looks to pull it away. Doesn't connect it seems as the umpire is not interested in the caught behind shout. For some strange reason though, he doesn't even signal it as a wide.
  • 8.3Short once more, it's pulled away square on the leg side for a single.
  • 8.2DROPPED AND SIX! The Gujarat skipper survives a scare. Hangs back to this back of a length ball, picks it up neatly and pulls it aerially towards fine leg. Yusuf Pathan the man there runs to his right and sticks his hand out. Gets to it but can't hold on to it. It goes off it and over the rope for a biggie.
  • 8.1FOUR! Good placement from Raina. He backs away, makes some decent room for himself and lofts it over extra cover. The fielder out in the deep doesn't stand a chance of stopping that one.
  • 7.6Solid from Ishan Kishan as he meets this length ball with the full face of the bat. Successful over from Coulter-Nile comes to an end. 83/3
  • 7.5Just back of a length, around the off pole, Kishan hangs back and keeps it out.
  • 7.4Angling across on a back of a length, Raina opens the bat-face and runs it down to third man for a single.
  • 7.3Nathan has a change of angle and comes from around the wicket, angles in a back of a length delivery from around off, Ishan Kishan hops a bit and works it down on the leg side for a run.
  • Ishan Kishan makes his way out to the middle.
  • 7.2OUT! Leading edge and taken! Dinesh Karthik looking to go over on the leg side has spooned this straight to Gautam Gambhir at short extra cover. It was a length ball on off, Karthik closed the face too early and got a leading edge to the Kolkata skipper who took a very good diving catch to his left. Coulter-Nile is continuing with his good run.
  • 7.1Full delivery shaping back in on off, Dinesh Karthik walks across a step and wrists it past the mid-wicket fielder for a couple of runs.
  • Nathan Coulter-Nile is brought back into the attack.
  • 6.6FOUR! Can't bowl there to Suresh Raina. It's short and wide outside off, the southpaw slaps this square past the diving point fielder to send it across the boundary line. 79/2
  • 6.5Short on middle, Suresh swivels a bit and pulls it along the ground. But it's straight to the man at square leg so no run is taken.
  • 6.4Angles in a good length ball on off, Karthik is off the mark as he moves across a touch and works it in front of square on the leg side for a single.
  • 6.3Length delivery, Raina flicks it through the mid-wicket region for a single.
  • Dinesh Karthik walks out to the middle.
  • 6.2OUT! WOAKES STRIKES IN HIS VERY FIRST OVER! And it's a big breakthrough, the dangerous McCullum departs. Full on the stumps, Brendon McCullum makes room and carves it over cover-point. Doesn't get the distance on this and it's straight into the hands of Manish Pandey out in the deep. He holds on to it and now, Gujarat have lost both their opener. Maybe the break has done the hosts some good.
  • 6.1Woakes starts off with a full delivery, Raina drives it with a straight bat to mid off and takes a quick single.
  • Chris Woakes is introduced into the attack.
  • 5.6Down the leg side, Raina clips it towards mid-wicket for a single. 72/1
  • 5.5McCullum sweeps it towards deep mid wicket for a single.
  • 5.4FOUR! Good shot! Floated around leg, McCullum sweeps it through the backward square leg region for a boundary.
  • 5.3The batsman has driven it through mid-on. One run added to the total.
  • 5.2Two Leg byes! Spearing into the pads, Raina goes to hit it fine down the leg side but fails to make contact. Hits the pads and it runs down the leg side for a couple of leg byes.
  • 5.1Full toss outside off, McCullum drives it through covers for a single.
  • The players are making their way out to the middle after the rain interruption. Suresh Raina and Brendon McCullum will continue with the bat for Gujarat. No overs lost. Seems like everything is going to resume normally. Shakib Al Hasan will bowl for Kolkata.
  • UPDATE 2230 LOCAL - Better news, folks! The covers are off and the word from the middle is that PLAY WILL RESUME AT 2240 LOCAL TIME. Don't go anywhere as we'll have play to being quickly.
  • UPDATE 2225 LOCAL - Good news! The rain has stopped now, probably the strong winds have aided this. The umpires are out to have a look at the conditions. We can pray it begins quickly. Well, it should given that it hasn't rained for too long.
  • At the current stage, Gujarat are ahead by 21 runs on the DLS method. The loss of over however could swing the tide either way. Either they'll hope for the match to be washed out completely from this point or come back out ASAP. Kolkata will definitely be hoping for the latter. As cricketing fans, so would we. We hope it begins shortly. Stay tuned for all the updates.
  • The groundsmen are getting ready to cover the pitch if the rain gets any heavier. The umpires are also having a chat in the middle. After the conversation, the thing we feared has happened and the umpires have called for covers. PLAY HAS BEEN HALTED DUE TO RAIN!
  • 4.6Attacking the stumps, Brendon McCullum uses his wrists well and turns it away through mid-wicket for a single. 62/1
  • 4.5Brilliant effort from Coulter-Nile, brilliant. McCullum uppishly pushes this through the covers and the Australian chases it down. Dives forward and parries the ball back just in time. Saves two vital runs for his side.
  • 4.4Full delivery and it's driven towards long off for a single.
  • 4.3Dropped! Big chance gone begging, the reaction on Robin Uthappa's face shows he knows that. For a change, Sunil Narine gives it some decent flight and bowls it around off, Raina is forward in defense but the ball takes the edge as it turns away. Goes off Uthappa's gloves and behind to short third man.
  • So we have a drizzle there on the ground. Not that heavy but it is quite visible.
  • 4.2Played to mid-wicket region by the batsman. One run added to the total.
  • 4.1Bit short in length around off, Raina works it away just wide of the mid-wicket fielder for one.
  • Change of ends for Sunil Narine.
  • 3.6FOUR! Another expensive over for Kolkata. Aaron Finch is there no more, but Brendon McCullum has taken over the charge and he's letting it rip out there. Full ball from Coulter-Nile, McCullum makes room and squeezes it out over backward point for a boundary to end the over. 56/1
  • 3.5SIX! THAT'S A BIG HIT! Once Brendon McCullum hits something, it stays hit! Short and on middle and off, McCullum pulls this hard. Hits it with so much power that the ball clears the mid-wicket boundary with utmost ease. The fielder there is only a mere spectator to this.
  • 3.4FOUR! Uses the pace well and dispatches the ball well. Length ball on off, McCullum makes room and cuts it hard. Beats the diving backward point fielder and the third man fielder as well who tries to cut it off. Boundary!
  • Suresh Raina will bat at number 3!
  • 3.3OUT! FINCH IS OUT OF HERE! Coulter-Nile strikes and this is some excellent bowling. Bowls another slower one, on the shorter side, Finch pulls it over square leg. Manish Pandey out in the deep runs to his right a bit and takes a good catch. A good start from Finch has come to an end.
  • 3.2Excellent delivery! Shorter in length and slower in pace again, Finch backs away for a big heave but fails to connect.
  • Free Hit coming up....
  • 3.2No ball! This isn't good for Kolkata, not good. Good slower ball from Coulter-Nile which Finch misses, but he's overstepped his line.
  • 3.1Angling in from around off on a good length, McCullum pushes it in front of cover-point and hares across for a single.
  • Nathan Coulter-Nile is called in for a bowl.
  • 2.6SIX! BAM! WHAT A HIT! Aaron Finch, you ripper! He properly gets underneath this one, it's full in length and quite loopy, and launches it high and handsome over the long on boundary for a biggie. 15 runs have come in this over. 40/0
  • 2.5FOUR! Takes the aerial route once more and yet again, the result is the same. Aaron Finch goes back and gets it over the mid on fielder's head for another boundary.
  • 2.4The batsman gets an inside edge and the ball hits him on the pads.
  • 2.3FOUR! Shorter in length from Shakib, it's muscled over the mid on fielder. Clears the infield easily and that'll be a boundary.
  • 2.2Loud shout for a leg before, turned down. But that really close, really close. McCullum gets low to sweep and gets hit on the thigh pad. It was however going to go down leg and hence, was declined by the umpire.
  • 2.1Full on middle and leg, Brendon off the inner half drives it to the wide mid on fielder.
  • 1.6FOUR! A big over for Gujarat, just the kind of start they need. 16 off the over. Finch stays back and punches it through the gap in the covers. The placement is brilliant as the ball races away to the boundary line. 25/0
  • 1.5SIX! That's a meaty blow! Brilliant hit. Lands this on a driving length around off, Finch kneels down and slog sweeps it deep into the mid-wicket stands for a maximum.
  • 1.4Sliding in around leg, Finch makes a little room to flick but is hit on the pads.
  • 1.3FOUR! Lovely hit. Aaron Finch goes inside out and dispatches this. Lofts it over the cover region and sends it all the way for a boundary.
  • 1.2Shorter in length and into the body, Finch swivels and pulls it in front of square. Two runs are taken as the fielder out in the deep cuts it off.
  • 1.1Flatter ball around off, kept out off the back foot.
  • Sunil Narine will share the new ball from the other end.
  • 0.6Looped up on middle and leg, Brendon prods forward and meets it with the full face of the bat. Good first over for Gujarat. 9 runs off it. 9/0
  • 0.5FOUR! Shot. Touch short and it's been punished. McCullum goes back and cuts it past the diving cover fielder for a boundary.
  • 0.4Slower through the air, full on off, it's defended off the front foot.
  • 0.3FOUR! Typical of Brendon McCullum to start things off in explosive fashion. It's tossed up to him, McCullum hammers it straight back down the ground, past the bowler who sticks his right hand out and that rockets away to the boundary line.
  • 0.2Makes a little room once more as Shakib tosses it up, Finch off the inner half slogs it to deep mid-wicket for a single.
  • 0.1Aaron Finch going for it right from the off there. First ball of the innings, against somebody like Shakib Al Hasan, he makes room. Exposes his stumps and punches it straight to the extra cover fielder.
  • We are back for the chase. Stiff target, but Gujarat do have the quality to hunt this down. A good start will be key here. Brendon McCullum strides out to the middle but he's partnered by Aaron Finch this time. Good decision to do so. Kolkata will start things off with some spin as Shakib Al Hasan takes the ball. A slip is in place. Here we go...
