  • So that's it from us for this game. Phew! We saw two really contrasting games. The first game was relatively close but the second? Well, despite the delayed start, we have finished before time which tells you that it ended in a jiffy. Gujarat and Bangalore are still in the bottom half and will know that things are only going to get tough from hereon. That's it for today. We hope you enjoyed our coverage. Mumbai host Pune for Match 28 at the Wankhede at 2000 local (1430 GMT) We look forward to your company. Until then, it's goodbye and take care!
  • Man of the Match, Nathan Coulter-Nile says that he had to come out steaming as they were defending 130. Adds that he had a bit of problems with no balls as he hasn't been bowling too much but was pumped up today. Mentions that whatever lengths he was bowling, he wanted to be aggressive and adds that he got good movement from the track. Feels that they have got world class spinners and they didn't even get to bowl today. Reckons that Woakes, Umesh (Yadav) and De Grandhomme were terrific and kept on going and going. Opines that you get goosebumps when the Kolkata crowd is up on its feet. Ends by saying that to get back the momentum after the last game is great.
  • Kolkata skipper Gautam Gambhir calls it a professional bowling performance from his team. Says that they have got really good fast bowlers and he just asked them to bowl quick and it worked. Mentions that they did not bat well after the first six overs, reckons that they needed to have got 160-170. They could not lose wickets in the 18th, 19th over. Hopes that they play their A game ahead. Further adds that they have quality fast bowlers so there was no point bowling the spinners. Calls it an impressive performance from his bowlers. Says that the message was to use the pace and express themselves. Ends by saying that a lot of sides think that they are a chasing side but forget that they have a bowling which can defend scores as well.
  • Bangalore skipper, Virat Kohli reckons that this is the worst batting performance of all time and adds that it is very hurtful standing here. Feels that the batting was very reckless. Opines that as professional cricketers they need to play much better. Says that a guy was walking right across the sightscreen when the bowler was about to bowl which distracted him. Feels that they got to take the positives from the first half and adds that he can't review the second half, needs to move on. Expects their players to realize their mistakes and come back harder. Mentions that they are going back home for a couple of games and after that, they will be down the road. Ends by saying that they need to win games to get some kind of momentum.
  • Just four bowlers were required for the home side as they wrapped up the game inside ten overs. Never seen anything like this before, what domination. They didn't have a par score on board but boy, how well did they bowl to get this win? This should boost their confidence big time. We did write about them taking inspiration from Mumbai but they just bettered then. Every bowler took wickets with Chris Woakes, Colin de Grandhomme and Nathan Coulter-Nile taking three wickets each.
  • What an annihilation this has been from Kolkata. If this was a Test match, Bangalore would have been beaten by an innings on Day 2. They have put up an abject batting performance to get bundled out for just 49 - the lowest total ever in the Indian T20 League. The fact that the top score for Bangalore was 9, just sums up the dismal performance put up today.
  • 9.4OUT! All over! What a win for Kolkata! De Grandhomme bowls it on a fullish length outside off, Chahal looks to drive but gets an outside edge. The slip fielders dive to catch it but Manish Pandey at second slip goes to his left and pouches it safely. What a performance, KOLKATA WIN BY 82 RUNS!
  • 9.3Fullish delivery outside off, shaping away. Chahal looks to drive but gets beaten all ends up.
  • 9.2Back of a length delivery, swinging in. Aravind looks to block it but gets an inside edge past his leg stump and towards fine leg. A run taken.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal is the last man in.
  • 9.1OUT! Another one bites the dust! Back of a length delivery outside off, Mills looks to go downtown but miscues it over long off. Kuldeep Yadav runs to his right, comes in from the deep and takes a fine catch. The home side need one more wicket to bowl out the tourists and if they do it, it will be a remarkable feat!
  • 8.6Bangs in a sharp bouncer and it's slanting across Aravind. He sways away from the line to evade it. Another terrific over. 48/8
  • 8.5FOUR! Fuller length ball slanting across Aravind. He checks his shot and hits it uppishly towards covers. There is no fielder there and the ball rolls to the fence.

  • 8.3OUT! Woakes is having a gala time! Bowls a fuller length ball on off and middle, Badree opts to stay back and looks to play it across but plays down the wrong line. Is rapped on the front pad and Kolkata go up in unison. The umpire has no hesitation in ruling it out. Badree needed to be on the front foot to counter it but you can't expect much from a tail-ender when your top order batsmen have been caught in shallow waters. The visitors are falling apart like a pack of cards.

  • 7.2On a length and nipping away. Negi feels for it but is beaten.
  • 7.1Fuller on middle and leg, nudged to deep square leg for a couple.
  • Colin de Grandhomme comes on for a bowl.

  • Samuel Badree walks out to bat.
  • 6.5OUT! Woakes strikes! Bowls it on a good length in the corridor of uncertainty outside off, Binny pushes at it with minimal foot movement but gets a faint edge that flies towards Uthappa. He moves to his right and takes a regulation catch. This has been a terrific display of fast bowling from the home side. The visitors don't have any clue about it.
  • 6.4The batsman rocks onto the back foot and punches the ball.
  • 6.3A fuller length delivery outside off, Binny pokes at it but gets beaten. A stifled appeal but there was no bat involved.

  • 5.4Two Leg byes! Gayle looks to tuck it towards square leg but gets it off his pads in the same region. He ambles across to the other end. The fielder has a shy at the bowler's end but misses. Kuldeep backing up at mid on makes a mess of it and concedes an overthrow.
  • 5.3FOUR! Luck is favouring Gayle tonight! Short delivery outside off, Gayle goes for the mighty pull but gets a top edge that flies over the slip region and goes for a one bounce boundary.
  • 5.2That's a peach! Bowls a good length delivery on off, shapes away appreciably. Gayle feels for it but gets beaten all ends up.
  • Slight hold up in play.
  • 5.1Bangs in an accurate bouncer on middle and it's sharp. Gayle has to sway away quickly to evade it.
  • 4.6FOUR! A bit streak but Binny will take it! Fuller length ball outside off, shaping away. Binny goes for the drive but gets it off the outer half behind point to earn himself for a boundary. A wicket and 4 runs from that over, terrific stuff from Coulter-Nile. 28/4

Gets a leading edge that spoons towards Chris Woakes at mid on. He backpedals a bit and takes it safely with his fingers pointing upwards. The track is a bit sticky and Nathan is ruling the roost on it. Bangalore need 108 from 95 balls and are in all sorts of trouble.
  • 3.6That's an absolute jaffa! Bowls a full length ball around the leg stump, Gayle clears his front leg and looks to work it across but the ball dips in to whiz past the leg stump. 24/3
  • 3.5Short again, Chris pulls it hard but finds the man at mid-wicket.
  • 3.4Banged in short on off, Jadhav gets into a bit of an awkward position but manages to pull it down to deep square leg for a single.
  • 3.3Good length ball outside off, Kedar looks to cut it initially but bails out at the last moment.

  • 2.2FOUR! Easy pickings! Straying on the pads, de Villiers just helps it down to fine leg for a boundary.

  • 1.6On a good length and angling down leg, de Villiers looks to defend it to the leg side but misses to get rapped on the thigh pad. A loud appeal for an LBW but it is turned down. The height was a factor and it was also heading down leg. 7/2
  • 1.5Back of a length delivery on off, punched off the back foot to mid on.
  • 1.4FOUR! Pure timing! Fullish delivery in line of the stumps, de Villiers flicks it beautifully through mid-wicket and the ball whistles away to the fence. Great way to get off the mark.
  • 1.3Bangs in a short delivery and it is angling down leg, de Villiers ducks under it. Strangely, no wide signaled by the umpire.
  • AB de Villiers walks out to bat.
  • 1.2OUT! What a start for the home side! Short of a length and room on offer, Mandeep Singh looks to cash on it. Slashes at it but the ball flies straight towards Pandey at point. This time he takes it with much more conviction. Bangalore are in a bit of bother here.

  • Umesh Yadav to bowl from the other end.
  • 0.6Gayle stays back to the good length delivery and defends it. End of an eventful first over. 3/1

  • Mandeep Singh is the new man in. Three slip in place! Is this Test cricket?
  • 0.3OUT! Kohli departs for a golden duck! Nicely bowled on a fuller length outside off at 143 clicks, swings away appreciably. Kohli reaches out to it, plays away from his body and drives it at loosely. Gets a thick outside edge that flies towards Manish Pandey at second slip. He moves to his right but fails to grab it in the first attempt. Recovers in time to take it cleanly the second time. Virat Kohli is frustrated and walks back disappointed. Massive breakthrough for the hosts. He is not happy with the movement behind the sightscreen. But if that was the case, he should have first ensured that it is sorted before facing the delivery or back away.
  • 0.2Leg bye! Swinging down the leg side, Gayle looks to play it across but is hit on the pads and the ball rolls towards short fine leg. A leg bye taken.
  • 0.1Ouch.. that must have hurt! Banged in short and it's climbing up on Gayle. He looks to power it through square leg but is hit on his left shoulder. Gambhir gets across from short leg and grabs it.
  • Free Hit time!
  • 0.1No ball! Starts off with a full delivery outside off, Gayle points his bat skywards to allow it through. The replays show that Coulter-Nile overstepped on that occasion.
  • Welcome back for the chase. Chris Gayle and Virat Kohli come out to open batting. Kolkata open the bowling with Nathan Coulter-Nile. There is a foward short leg in place for Gayle, Gambhir himself is under the lid.
