That is it for today. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. From tomorrow there are four back-to-back days of double headers. A lot of action but talking about Friday, the first match is Bangalore versus Mumbai, at 1600 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 his team's previous fixture. A day of exciting cricket awaits. Join us tomorrow for all the updates. Cheers!
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 doesn't matter but what matters is points on the board and adds that it 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. Feels that Sunil Narine is a pinch hitter and him batting at number 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 him up the order. Ends by saying that the personal milestones don't make him happy, team winning does.
Glenn Maxwell says that they thought that they had a chance considering that their batters struggled towards 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 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 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 wonders for them as the West Indian played a breezy knock to set the tone.

Marcus Stoinis To Manish Pandey
SIX! 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.

Sandeep Sharma To Gautam Gambhir
NOT 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.

FOUR! Short delivery in the line of the leg stump, the ball stops on Pandey but he waits for it. Uses his wrists and pulls it through backward square leg for a boundary. There was a long leg present but all he could do was throw the ball back to the keeper.
