Commentry

!

That's it from the first match of today's doubleheader. But there is another game between Pune and Kolkata at Eden Gardens. Do join us for that game.

!

AB de Villiers has been awarded the Man of the Match!

!

Chris Jordan is the pick of the bowlers as he picked up four wickets and only gave 11 runs in his 3 overs. Chahal was also impressive as he got 3 wickets. Bangalore never allowed the Gujarat batsmen to settle down and took wickets in regular intervals. Apart from the first few overs of the first innings, Gujarat were never in the frame. End of the day, Bangalore deserve this win as they were simply amazing with both bat and ball.

!

It was a clinical win for Bangalore as they outclassed Gujarat with a big margin. Earlier, Kohli and de Villiers played brilliant knocks and asked Gujarat to chase a big total. But the home side never gave a chance to the visitors to get in the game. The home side bowlers were outstanding today and they utilized 9 bowlers in this match.
