  • That is it for today. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. From tomorrow start four back-to-back days of double headers. A lot of action but talking about Friday, the first match is Bangalore versus Mumbai,at 16000 local and 1030 GMT, where Virat Kohli will most probably mark his comeback. Gujarat will host Pune, at 2000 Local and 1430 GMT, in the evening and Steven Smith might return to his side after missing the side's earlier fixture. A day of exciting cricket awaits. Join us tomorrow for all the updates.
  • Man of the Match, Sunil Narine says it came off today with the bat. Adds that he backs his ability, he has batted up the order before and was ready for the challenge. Regarding his tidy bowling, he replies that he does the basics right and keeps it wicket-to-wicket to not give any space to the batsmen.
  • Gautam Gambhir says that winning the orange cap or not doesn't matter. Reveals that what matters is points on the board and adds that that is something he always believes in. Thinks that the new wicket is good to bat on and has good carry. Mentions that they have a good pace attack with Umesh Yadav too coming back in the side. Jokes that he should also start trusting Sunil Narine with the bat now. Thinks that Sunil Narine is a pinch hitter and him batting at No 9 doesn't make much sense because that will not give him enough balls. Adds that they have a long batting line-up so they can afford sending up at the top. Ends by saying that personal runs doesn't make him happy and hopes to continue the winning momentum in the next match against Hyderabad.
  • Glenn Maxwell says that they thought that they had a chance considering that their batters struggled at the end. Opines that he was not surprised after seeing Sunil Narine open as he saw the same in the Australian T20 League. Conveys that they batted well but the over where they lost three wickets in one over cost them too much. Ends by saying that they will have a talk before regrouping for their next game against Delhi.
  • Gautam Gambhir was in his elements too as he steered his side to victory and stayed unbeaten on 72. Robin Uthappa and Manish Pandey also lent good support. It was a completely flavourless bowling performance by the visiting team. They lost the plot very early in the chase when Sunil Narine went hammer and tongs and never recovered. This is their first defeat of the season and they would look to come back on track in their next game.
  • Thumping victory for Kolkata! They further stamped their authority over Punjab and have outclassed them. It was a clinical batting show from their batsmen as they scaled down the target without breaking a sweat. The move to send Sunil Narine to open the innings did wonder for them as the West Indian played a breezy knock to set the tone.
  • 16.3SIX! Finishes it off in style! KOLKATA WIN BY 8 WICKETS! A comprehensive win which will do their net run rate wonders. Coming to the ball, Stoinis bowls it full and outside off, Pandey goes across and swats it over the long on fielder for a maximum. He fist bumps Gambhir to celebrate the win.

  • 16.1Gambhir drives this fullish delivery through covers for a single.
  • Marcos Stoinis is back on.

  • 15.5FOUR! Replies with a boundary. Gambhir cuts this length ball past Miller for a boundary. This time the ball was nowhere near him.
  • 15.4NOT OUT! Yes it did, lets move on. Sandeep bowls this very full and outside off, Gambhir tries to beat the point fielder by squeezing it out. But Miller dives forward and catches it. He thinks he has got the opposition captain. And the umpire has gone upstairs to check for the bump ball. Replays show that it did bounce before going to the fielder, so Gambhir survives.
  • David Miller has taken a catch at point and is claiming it. However, the umpires have gone upstairs to check whether it bumped first.

  • 8.3FOUR! Nicely played! Back of a length delivery on middle, Uthappa shuffles across, turns inside the crease, lifts his right leg and eases it away over square leg for a boundary. Class!

  • Varun Aaron comes into the attack.

  • 4.5Flatter on middle, helped through mid-wicket for a single.
  • 4.4FOUR! Up and over! Skipper is leaking boundaries. Sliding down the leg side, Narine turns inside the crease and lofts it just over the leaping backward square leg fielder for a boundary.

  • 4.1FOUR! Flatter and on the pads, Gambhir nudges it past short fine leg and fetches a boundary.

  • 3.5Short ball, Ishant targeting Narine's body, the West Indian is early into the pull shot and takes a blow on his body.
  • 3.4Plays it with soft hands to mid-wicket and sneaks a single.
  • 3.3FOUR! Fighting fire with fire! Ishant lets across a fiery short ball, 146 kph, short and wide, Gambhir stands tall and whacks it through backward point for a boundary.
  • 3.2Bangs in a short ball, well-directed, Narine fends it off on the leg side and crosses.
  • 3.1FIVE RUNS! First of all there was a big appeal for an lbw as Gambhir fails to defend a length ball from the crease. The ball ricochets off his pads to point, they attempt for a leg bye and Miller misses his shy at the striker's end. No one backing up and it has sped away to the fence at square leg. Direct hit would have been curtains for Narine. Returning to the first event, which was an lbw shout, the replays show that it pitched outside leg.
  • Ishant Sharma steams in but pulls out at the last moment.
  • 2.6An outswinger around off, Gambhir strokes it from the back foot to mid off for a single. 31/0
  • 2.5FOUR! Boom! Sandeep overpitches outside off, Gambhir goes down on one knee and blazes his cover drive for a boundary. Finally getting in his groove, GG!
  • 2.4FOUR! Shot! Good length ball around off, angling away, Gambhir rocks back, allows it to come at him and punches it sweetly through the gap at point for a boundary.
  • 2.3Shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot.
  • 2.2Short and on middle, pulled to deep mid-wicket for a single.
  • 2.1SIX! Length delivery outside off, Narine latches onto the room and powers it over long off for a biggie. Finally, a good connection after a series of plays and misses.
  • 1.6Short and wide outside off, make it the umpteenth attempt by Gambhir to nick one to the keeper. Flash and a miss. Lady luck is with him. 15/0
  • 1.5The batsman was beaten and missed the line of the delivery. Was attempting to run it down to third man with two slips in place. Trying to be adventurous, GG!
  • 1.4Gambhir meanwhile continues to live dangerously. Goes flashing at a wide delivery outside off and misses.
  • 1.3EDGY FOUR! Ishant bowls a beauty, shortish around off, shaping away, Gambhir gets across the stumps, is squared up a bit and the outside edge travels just wide of Maxwell at second slip. The third man fielder dives but it has gone past the rope.
  • 1.2FOUR! Sharma once again is on the shorter side, wide outside off, Gambhir this time connects with his square cut and sends it speeding behind point for a boundary.
  • 1.2Wide! Another wild delivery by Ishant, short and wide, Gambhir once again throws his bat at it and misses.
  • 1.1A touch short of a length and around off, nipping away, Gambhir pushes inside the line and misses.
  • 1.1Wide! Wild delivery, way wide outside off, Gambhir goes chasing after it but fails to connect.
  • Ishant Sharma to bowl from the other end.
  • 0.6Length and angling away from the batsman, Narine finally middles his shot but it has gone straight to the cover fielder. 5/0
  • 0.5Make it one more ambitious attempted shot but to no avail. Narine needs to watch the ball before swinging his bat. This is not going as per Kolkata's plan.
  • 0.4Another play and a miss outside off from Narine. He is just not watching the ball. Swinging it blindly.
  • 0.3Full and outside off, Narine throws his bat at it but misses.
  • 0.2FOUR! Flashes and flashes hard. Not from the middle of the bat but enough to cross the fence. A shortish ball outside off, swinging away, Narine swings his bat at that swing and gets it away over point for a boundary.
  • 0.1Length delivery outside off, angling away, Narine tries to force it through the line but misses.
  • 0.1Wide! Some visible swing on offer but it's too wide outside off and Narine leaves it. The umpire stretches his arms.
  • Back for the chase! Kolkata have surprised one and all by sending Sunil Narine to open with Gautam Gambhir. Sandeep Sharma to begin proceedings with a slip in place. Here we go...
