END OF OVER:

Deccan goofed up the chase big time after a superb fifty from Gilchrist. Laxman, Gibbs, Symonds and Sharma got out to poor shots and they eventually paid the price. Credit to Kolkata's bowlers for not giving up and credit to Owais Shah and Angelo Mathews for stunning counter attacks after Vaas had left Kolkata's innings in disarray. After enduring two poor campaigns, Kolkata will be thrilled with this result.

The presentation ceremony will happen once all the backslapping ends ...

A few awards are being given out, Mathews picks up some cash for hitting the most sixes. Gibbs pockets some moolah for taking a catch, that of Hodge.

"We were in the box seat, great start with the ball and bat but we didn't finish well. We panicked a little bit. It wasn't smart cricket. It was gettable on that wicket, all credit to the Knight Riders," says Gilchrist.

Ganguly: "We were ordinary for the first ten overs in both innings but we pulled back in the last ten. We've got some improvements to make, fielding is an area. We dropped Adam twice and we were lucky to win from there. Owais and Mathews batted outstandingly to take us to 161."

"And that's all we have from the presentation area," says Shastri with finality. No Man-of-the-Match award? Okay then, my vote goes to Angelo Mathews.

So that's it from us at Cricinfo for today. Tomorrow's a double header: Mumbai take on Rajasthan at the Brabourne at 3.00 IST, followed by Punjab v Delhi in Mohali at 8.00 pm. See you there, cheers.

Sharma to Suman, 1 run, Ishant what are you doing? He pulled off a spectacular dive to field a straight drive, he then tries to throw hard at the non striker's end and concedes an over throw, he needn't have thrown, he could have got up, ambled to the stumps and knocked off the bails

Deccan need four off each ball.
