A comprehensive win for Kolkata. They have won 6 matches in a row now and they continue their juggernaut getting through to the playoffs. They batted well with Robin and Shakib scoring good fifties. Defending a big total, they started well too knocking Gayle off early. Kohli and Takawale added 85-runs for the second wicket but then, Narine killed the chase with his 4-wicket spell taking out the big men. Bangalore could just not recover from it.

Umesh Yadav to Sachin Rana

NOT OUT! No-ball! High full toss on off, Rana pulls it hard through the mid-wicket region. They risk the second as the throw is good and Robin takes the bails off. The decision is referred upstairs but the replay shows that Rana was just in.

A run out appeal is referred upstairs!
