Commentary

Delhi take the No.1 spot with that hammering. Kolkata are effectively out of the competition, and can only play for pride from here on. A comfortable win in the end, and that double-strike from Ishant gave them the only moment of hope in this game. AB continues his good run, and Karthik supported him very well. It marks the eighth loss for Kolkata this IPL, and their only win came in a rain-affected game. A massive disappointment after all that hype in the run-up to the competition. Join us in a bit for the presentation.

McCullum: "Not enough runs on the board. We fought well to get 120, but those three wickets at the top hurt us. We are not consistent across the board, we need to get all three facets of the game firing at the same time. Around 20-30 runs more and it could have been a close game."

Gambhir: "The bowlers set up the game with those early wickets. We've not been chasing big totals so the important thing for us was to hang in there and bat till the end. Still five more games to go, so we need to hold the momentum."

Amit Mishra is the Man of the Match for his three-wicket haul.

Mishra: "I'm bowling well. I'm just bowling my normal leg-spin and adding some variation to put pressure on the batsmen"

So that's all we have from here folks. Thanks for tuning in and sending us all your feedback. Until tomorrow, it's goodbye from all of us at Cricinfo. Cheers!

Henriques to de Villiers, 1 run, yorker targeting middle, nicely bowled, but he was able to bring his bat down in time, got an inside edge wide of square leg for a single

1w
Henriques to de Villiers, 1 wide, hurls a wide way wide of the off stump, one more to the score, and they're just one hit away

That's the 50 partnership. Delhi looked a bit shaky when three wickets down, but these two have done extremely well to take them to the brink

Henriques to Karthik, 1 run, banged in short on the off, rolls his wrists over it to pull it to deep square leg
