That's all from Super Sunday. We witnessed a couple of one-sided matches where Bangalore suffered yet another loss while Kolkata gave a royal thrashing to Rajasthan. On Monday, Punjab will be hosting Hyderabad at 2000 local (1430 GMT). Do join us for all the action. Cheers!
Man of the Match, Harry Gurney, says this was the kind of pitch which suited his cutter options, so is happy to make his debut here. Adds that he works on his variations a lot so is happy it's paying off. When asked about the knuckle ball, he says he's still working on it but is unsure if he'll use it in this season of the competition.
Kolkata skipper, Dinesh Karthik, says it was a clinical effort from his side. States that there are a lot of slow surfaces in India which you need to adapt to fast, but admits that his boys are doing that well. On Harry Gurney, he mentions that he's got the confidence and the skills, so isn't surprised that he's had a good debut.
Chris Lynn also comes up for a little chat. He is all smiles and first admits that he got a little bit of luck again tonight. Adds that they were in full control of the match after a nice Powerplay. On the incident when the bails didn't come off, Lynn replies that he thought he either got bowled or caught behind but was surprised what happened. Praises the batting of Sunil Narine and terms it unbelievable. Mentions that they just want to keep things simple. States that it's a big tournament and they just need to put up wins on the board.
Rajasthan skipper, Ajinkya Rahane, says that 150-160 would have been a good total. Admits that they didn't bowl according to the plan and there is a lot to learn from this match. Hopes his boys will take lessons from this outing. Rues the dropped catch and the moment when the bails didn't come off when Chris Lynn was batting. Informs that the thought behind playing two wrist spinners was that the wicket was going to be on the slower side and that's why they gave Sudhesan Midhun a game today.
Rajasthan just appeared listless with the ball. A complete contrast to the first innings where the batsmen struggled so much to make proper connection with the ball. Whether it be spinner or pacer, the Kolkata opening pair successfully attacked anyone they faced and put the game to bed more easily than anyone would have thought. Plenty for the home side to ponder and work on. Earlier in the evening, Rajasthan managed to post 139 on the board on the back of a fine fifty from Steven Smith, but it eventually didn't prove to be enough.
A thumping victory for Kolkata. Where Rajasthan struggled so much with the bat, the visitors have just battered the hosts' bowling attack like it was a flat wicket. It poses a big question as to what happened in the first innings. Lynn and Narine set the tone and more or less finished the job at hand as the duo put 91 runs between them for the opening stand, with the former scoring a fast fifty. Uthappa and Gill then came in and put the finishing touches on a comfortable chase.

Ben Stokes To Shubman Gill
Wide! And it ends in a rather anti-climatic manner, but the victory was always going to come. KOLKATA WIN BY 8 WICKETS AND 37 BALLS REMAINING! Stokes angles this down the leg side as Gill fails to flick. The umpire signals a wide.

Nice shape in, around off before going away as it lands on a driving length. The batter prods forward and defends it out well.

Shreyas Gopal To Robin Uthappa
SIX! Straight as an arrow. Tossed right up there, in the slot, Uthappa plants his front foot forward, gets close to the pitch and smokes it back over the bowler's head. It's a flat hit and that's one more biggie for Kolkata. They're inching towards victory here.

Shreyas Gopal To Robin Uthappa
SIX! A poor ball and it's been duly punished by Uthappa. Half-tracker in line of the stumps, Robbie goes deep inside the crease and muscles the pull over mid-wicket for a biggie.

Shreyas Gopal To Chris Lynn OUT!
OUT! Lynn departs. He's more or less finished the job here. Gopal floats it up in line of the stumps, the Australian kneels down and brings out the slog sweep again. Is in no control of it this time as it lobs towards deep backward square leg. Midhun from the deep comes running in and takes a simple catch.
