That's all we have here. Cheers

Presentation
Jaydev Unadkat is the MoM He says: "Dada gave me the confidence that you can do it. Dada took a great catch and then Gayle took a lovely catch too. It's really great to play in IPL, I am enjoying every moment of it."

Sourav Ganguly "Definitely in the hunt, but we need others to help us a bit. A little disappointing, because we had our moments, our chances in the past. It did [occur to us that we should get it in 13 overs], but it was a difficult wicket, and we lost two wickets. It was spinning, it was stopping, and we had to make sure we get close and then go for the big hits."

Shane Warne "Story of the last few games. Not enough runs. Sourav chased well, credit to Kolkata. Never easy to know you are out of such a competition, when you are in the hunt three games ago. It hurts. But we have got good friendships, the relationship with the crowds, to take away from. Not sure if I will play next season, I will sit and wait. I am bowling okay, enjoying, but we will have to wait and see."

So a comprehensive win for Kolkata, but ideally they would have liked to finish this in 13 overs or so. But with McCullum and Gayle falling in one over, they were slowed down. With -.456, Kolkata are now not too far behind Deccan in the run-rate. And Deccan seem to be the only team right now, who they can beat on net run-rate. To advance to the semis, Kolkata need three things to go their way: Chennai have to lose to Punja, then Deccan to Delhi, and then Kolkata have to win against Mumbai by a reasonable margin. A long way to go for them. End of the road, though, for Rajasthan, who did well with their limited resources, but also had themselves to blame for their picks at the auction
