Sunil Narine is adjudged the Man of the Match for his all-round performance. That is all we have from this game but the action isn't finished for the day. Second game of the evening is just about to begin, hop on to the other tab and checkout what's happening in the game between Delhi and Bangalore. See you on the other side!!
With very little support from the other end, the pressure started to mount on KL Rahul. He tried to cut loose but eventually fell to the guile of Sunil Narine. Aaron Finch did scare Kolkata for a while with his big hitting but as soon as he was out, the writing was on the wall. Ravichandran Ashwin and Andrew Tye formed a partnership towards the end but that only delayed the inevitable. Prasidh Krishna also impressed with the ball today and made his presence felt.
Rahul and Gayle provided Punjab with a cracking start as they registered another 50-run opening stand and were on course to chase down this total. Kolkata were desperate for a wicket at that stage and their skipper turned to Russell. The West Indian all-rounder didn't disappoint and ended as the most successful bowler of the evening for the visiting team. He got back-to-back wickets and got his team back on top. Despite all the fall of wickets at the other end, Rahul continued to do well with the bat.
Brave performance by Punjab but they eventually fell short of the target. Kolkata have successfully defended the total and have bagged a couple of important points. They now have 12 points against their name and have leaped over Mumbai in the points table. Their bowlers have got the job done and it was a commendable effort from the visiting team. They batted superbly and then the bowlers did decently to defend the total. It was a complete team performance from Karthik's men. Also, this is the first instance in Indore that a chasing team has lost the match.

Prasidh Krishna To Ravichandran Ashwin OUT!
OUT! Plumb in front! Easy decision for the umpire though he took his time before raising his finger eventually. It is a pitched up delivery on middle and leg stump line, Ashwin camps back and looks to heave that one across the line. He misses it completely. The ball hits him flush on the knee roll, the unprotected area. Krishna appeals and gets his second wicket. Ashwin looks in some pain and the Kolkata skipper is trying to help him out. End of a gutsy knock from the home captain.

Prasidh Krishna To Andrew Tye OUT!
OUT! Acrobatic effort from Karthik, he pulls off a stunner and sends Tye packing into the hut! Short of a length ball down the leg side, Tye swivels across and attempts the pull shot. He gloves it to the keeper, who flew to his left and takes a blinder. He doesn't even bother to appeal, just raises his hand and looks at the umpire and gets the signal in his favor.
