Robin Uthappa is adjudged the Man of the Match for his brilliant knock that ensured Kolkata were right on top from the start with a superb fifty. He starts off saying that he likes batting at Eden. The crowd is fantastic and have always enjoyed playing here. Adds the wicket was coming on well, he was just looking to hit the gaps and knew the runs would come. Mentions he was concentrating on holding his shape and not go hard at the ball. Credits Pandey for doing well to let Shakib score freely. Dedicates his knock to his friend, Muffin!
Chennai will be disappointed with their bowling effort. They were all over the place and dropped catches as well. They have now lost two in a row and will not want to get to the playoffs with such performances. Kolkata will be delighted with the win and they get in the top four and are looking really threatening. This was their 5th win chasing in a row this year.
Superb finish to the chase from Kolkata. They started with aplomb with Robin striking boundaries at will. He gave them a quick start and ensured they were on top right from the start. Gambhir fell soon but Robin kept on playing gorgeous shots, making the drops hurt Chennai badly. Uthappa fell after getting to his fifty but Shakib played a brilliant knock to ensure they won the match with overs to spare.
