KM: "@Avi - On the contrary, I feel it's an excellent move by Gambhir to send Morgan. It accomplishes two things: gives him some match practice and keeps the scoreboard ticking. Really, Morgan has to be one of the best in the business. He can rotate the strike, find the out odd boundary, and if needed, he can also manufacture shots. Yes, Shakib can also do that, but Morgan is the man they really need to ensure is in form before the later stages in the tournament."

Will Vinay bowl another slower one? Abdulla must be expecting it now.

19.4

Vinay Kumar to Iqbal Abdulla, 1 run, and it is! Another slower ball outside off and Abdulla can't do anything with them, mis-times the hit towards the off side

Superb use of slower balls against a batsman who isn't adept at improvising and adapting.

"What accuracy from Mahela to predict 130 as the par score at the beginning. Prove to be a winning score. Great cricketing brain!" says Randy. It's almost a winning score.

19.5

Vinay Kumar to Bhatia, 1 run, OUT, Bhatia slugs the ball down the ground, the fielder at long-on runs to his left and slides to field, Bhatia returns for the second but doesn't dive as Parthiv breaks the stumps, it's very close and he's on the line as the bails come off, a dive would have saved him

19.6

Vinay Kumar to Balaji, 1 run, Vinay bowls off a short run to ensure he doesn't over-step and the batsman hits it towards mid-off, Kochi have defended superbly

Kolkata have lost a game after winning three on the trot. Kochi have now won three in a row. Jayawardene said at the toss that 130-140 would be a defendable score. His team got 132 and they won by six runs. He read the game perfectly.

"Kochi have become the giant killers, after MI and CSK now they beat in-form KKR. They have conquered 3 of the 4 metro cities too!" says Bhavish.

"I find this game far more interesting than the usual run-fests. Great pitch!" says Harry.

Gambhir: "We should have chased that target easily. The wicket was playing better than it did in the last game. Credit to Kochi. The way their bowlers bowled. We were disappointing, not up to the mark ... Nothing serious with Yusuf's injury, he should be OK for the next game."

The Man of the Match is Mahela Jayawardene: "I thought it was going to be a scrappy game, 130 was a competitive score. We missed out on about 15 runs, we batted really well. The bowlers performed under pressure, the fielding was outstanding ... Our quicks had the variation, knew I could use them at the end of the game. We took early wickets, guys like Gambhir and Kallis can hurt you. I had quality at the end as well."

Thank you for all your emails. That's all we have for you today. The IPL rolls on tomorrow and so will we. See you then. Cheers.
