That is it from this game! 2 in 2 for the hosts, whereas, the visitors suffered their first defeat of the season. Indian T20 League action continues on Thursday as we have two different teams battling it out. Bangalore host Mumbai at 2000 local (1430 GMT). Till then, take care and goodbye!
Man of the Match, Andre Russell, says he is happy to keep winning cars and all the awards. Mentions he is very pleased to get Gayle's wicket as everybody knows how devastating he can be. States Gayle is still the bigger hitter compared to him. Jokingly thanks the guy who was the extra fielder outside the ring. Further adds he believes that was an important moment in the game as it does not happen everyday. Ends by saying he makes sure he has a clear head, the jump he does before he bats, a couple of swings is a part of his warm-up.
Kolkata skipper, Dinesh Karthik, says it is a very good start and just what they wanted but there is still a long way to go. Credits the way Nitish and Uthappa played. Appreciates the effort from the bowlers also. Adds that Narine's injury was the reason Nitish opened last game, he was fit in this game and hence he was given his position back. Ends by saying playing away is a challenge and they will try and do their best.
Punjab skipper, Ravichandran Ashwin, replying to that no ball incident, says that it is the small things which cost you the game in this format and they have to be more aware. Mentions he takes the blame on himself for that no ball. Further adds Varun Chakravarthy was playing his first game and he will improve as time goes on. Credits the way Mayank Agarwal batted. Mentions that the Mohali wicket suits them and adds that they played 4 games there last year and won all of them. Hopes to continue that good run.
Earlier in the match, Kolkata were put to bat and they performed brilliantly. Every batsman contributed to the cause and once again it was Andre Russell who provided the kick with his swashbuckling knock in the death overs. He got a reprieve due to a silly mistake from Punjab (bowled off a no ball as there was an extra fielder outside the ring) and his knock eventually proved to be the differential factor. With the ball also, Kolkata were nearly there. Although they conceded too many runs, they made sure to chip in with some tidy overs in between. Once again it was Andre Russell who picked up a couple of crucial wickets and proved his worth as an all-rounder in the team.
A comfortable win in the end for Kolkata! After they posted a gigantic total on the board and removed KL Rahul and Chris Gayle cheaply, they always were ahead in the match. Mayank Agarwal and David Miller did try to revive the chase with a handy 74-run partnership but the required rate kept mounting and never allowed them to gain any control. Towards the end, Mandeep Singh also played some shots but still Punjab fell short by 28 runs.

Looking London, Talking Tokyo! A short ball on off, quite pacy, Mandeep winds up for a big pull shot on the leg side but is hurried up due to the excessive pace. It takes the bottom half of his bat's blade and speeds to deep point for a run. 15 from the over. 67 needed off 18 balls.

Piyush Chawla To David Miller
NOT OUT! Nothing on Ultra Edge, a big gap between bat and ball and the on-field call has to be overturned! Good use of the review there and Punjab's glimmer of hope survives to fight another day. Chawla once again sticks to the line outside off. Miller looks to slap it hard. He seems to have missed it. Karthik takes it and appeals. The umpire agrees. Miller reviews and replays show that there is no bat involved.
Appeal for a caught behind! Dinesh Karthik is very sure. The umpire raises his finger. David Miller has taken the referral...

Piyush Chawla To Mayank Agarwal OUT!
OUT! Mayank has been cleaned up by Chawla! The googly does the trick. We feel Mayank did pick it and hence goes for the slog sweep. The ball though does not bounce a lot, goes under the bat and knocks the leg stump out. Chawla breaks the 74-run stand and a set batsman is back in the hut. A good innings by Agarwal but he had a lot to do and perishes in an attempt to do so.
15.1
1
Piyush Chawla To David Miller
Well bowled! Sees Miller shuffle right across so bowls it wide outside off. Miller hits it to sweeper cover for a run.
Strategic break. The current partnership has somewhere given hope to Punjab. The equation still is a daunting one - 86 off 30 balls. As long as Miller is there, the danger is also there. Mayank Agarwal has also looked in great touch and if these two last the distance, we are in for a thrilling finish. Sit back and enjoy the ride. Piyush Chawla to bowl...

FOUR! Lovely shot! Miller uses his feet, Kuldeep tries to outsmart him by firing it in. Miller does well to get bat to it, he does even better to get it past cover. Russell runs to his right and seems to have pushed it back in. However, replays show that he was in contact with the ropes and the ball at the same time. Boundary.

In the air... dropped! Rinku Singh is the culprit but it is a very good effort. Agarwal comes down the track and looks to hit it against the turn. It was the googly. He ends up slicing it towards cover-point. Rinku, the substitute there, runs to his left, dives but can't hang on to the catch. Couple taken.

DROPPED! Ferguson drops a sitter! Miller once again goes for the sweep shot. This time though he hits it flat towards deep backward square leg. Ferguson there goes for the reverse cup but fails to hang on. He though does well to recover and push it back in before it crosses the ropes with an acrobatic dive. The umpires go up to check and the replays show he has done well. Just a single. A reprieve for Miller. We saw what Russell did when he got a life, Miller will have to better that effort here.

No respite for Punjab. In comes Sunil Narine to bowl.
Strategic break. Kolkata comfortably on top. Chris Gayle, KL Rahul and Sarfaraz Khan, all known for big hitting, are already removed and Punjab are staring down the barrel. David Miller is capable of hitting big but the required rate has jumped to 13.54 and it's not going to be easy against the quality and variety that the home team has in its bowling attack.

Andre Russell To Sarfaraz Khan OUT!
OUT! Russel gets another one! The slower ball does the trick for him this time. Sarfaraz was completely foxed there. It is down the leg side. Khan is way too early in his shot as he tries to hit it towards fine leg. Only manages a top edge which lobs towards the left of Karthik. He runs there and takes it. He then points towards the bowler so surely there was some planning between the two. Kolkata right on top here. 159 runs more needed off 75 balls.

Prasidh Krishna To Sarfaraz Khan
Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
What happened there? Dinesh Karthik and Robin Uthappa are having an animated chat with the umpires. All the Kolkata players have surrounded there. Not sure what's the issue... Now we know! After the last ball, the fielder threw it casually over the bowler and Russell didn't back it up at mid on as he probably lost the ball in the floodlights. The ball went past the rope. So, it's 5 runs on 5.1. The argument that DK was putting was that the ball became dead once the run was completed and it should not have been counted as overthrows. Anyway, let's move on.

Andre Russell To Sarfaraz Khan
FOUR! Clever shot! Short and on middle, Sarfaraz at the very end arches his back and then upper cuts it. Uses the pace of the bowler and fetches a boundary in the fine leg region.

Length delivery around middle, this one comes back in a little. Khan looks to flick but misses to get hit high on the pads.

Andre Russell To Chris Gayle OUT!
OUT! In the air... taken! Russell gets the big man. Did it with the bat first and now with the ball. Too quick this for Gayle. It is short and on the body. Gayle looks to pull but the ball hurries onto him. It hits the higher portion and then balloons back over the bowler's head. Now there are two fielders going after it, one from mid off and the other from mid on. No calling between the two. However, they avoid the collision and Prasidh from mid off takes it. Russell strikes straightaway and now chasing this target is going to be an uphill task for the batters to come.

Andre Russell To Mayank Agarwal

Lockie Ferguson To Lokesh Rahul OUT!
OUT! Pressure was building and KL Rahul succumbs. Ferguson ups his pace and delivers a length ball on off at 145.9 kph. Rahul backs away to play a lofted shot over the cover region but fails to time his shot properly. His bat turns in his hands and the bottom hand also comes off as he ends up chipping a straightforward catch to Kuldeep Yadav at mid off. Big loss for Punjab.
