You almost feel cheated when a Twenty20 game is this one-sided because this is a format so conducive to a close finish. A 40-run defeat is massive and Kolkata's chase had no life at any stage.

There will be a live chat with Matty Hayden tomorrow, between 1345 and 1415 IST. Make sure you catch that, and ask him what's up with Chennai Super Kings this season, why he's using the mongoose, and whether he misses that Orange Cap. Send your questions in to chatterbox@cricinfo.com

Ganguly: "It was a 150 wicket, but David [Warner] played a blinder. He kept clearing the ground, we tried. It was a slow pitch, it gripped, seamers were going for runs, spin was the only option. We need to bat better, it was an important toss to win here. Hopefully we can improve."

Gambhir: "Warner's was one of the best innings I have seen, especially on this track. 180 was always a very good total. We know how to play on such a track, it's difficult for a new team to adjust to this pitch. Umesh has good pace, he has a good future."

Warner, the Man of the match: "I just assessed the conditions and backed myself. I had to knuckle down after six overs and stay in the middle. Anywhere between 160-180 was going to be a good total. Collingwood was perfect, he played terrific and assessed the conditions well."

Right, that's about it from us at Cricinfo today. Remember to catch the replay of the Warner-Collingwood partnership and Hussey's catch. You can switch off after that, the rest was mediocre. Cheers.

McDonald to Langeveldt, OUT, the off stump has been uprooted by a length ball that cut back into the right-hander and took the inside edge as well, well that's that! Delhi have walked all over Kolkata.

McDonald to Kartik, OUT, what happened there? McDonald bowled a yorker and Kartik had all sorts of trouble keeping it out, then he didn't know where the ball was and wandered down the pitch, Dinesh Karthik scampered in front of the stumps, picked up the ball and broke the stumps, Kartik's bat was in the air as the bails came off
