That will be all from us today. Join us for tomorrow's games, till then this is Abhishek Purohit signing off. Cheers, and keep them comments flowing. And also read Sid Ravi's bulletin which should be updated soon.

Kallis, the Man of the Match: "Not a good feeling getting hit on the chin with a cricket ball, but I'll be alright. We were steady throughout, good performance in the end, couple of international players will come in now, so that should boost us. We have a powerful batting line-up and look to set the platform for the big hitters down the order."

Gambhir: "Always a great feeling to put runs on the board. It's the City of Joy, hopefully we can win many and bring them lot of joy. Lot of credit to the bowlers today."

Sangakkara: "I thought 163 was a good total on this wicket. We still got the rate back on track after some early wickets, but kept losing so many wickets."

Hang on for the presentation.

Kolkata looked the stronger side, and for once they have justified the billing, despite ten Doeschate and Morgan not getting a bat, they got enough in the end to comfortably see off Deccan's charge, which never came. Chipli resisted with 48, Christian smoked a few big ones, but once he was dismissed, Deccan had no chance.

Karthik: "Even though Kallis hit a fifty and took 4 catches, I believe Iqbal Abdulla should get the man of the match award. If it wasn't for the last two blows from Dan, his figures would have been 4-0-14-3. Good effort that." Certainly was.

shorty: "Last ball six, yet still a loss. How poetic."

Siva: "Deccan Chargers is not looking to win any match this season, unless their opponents utterly fail in any day. No batting fire power, no bowling (except Steyn). I have no answer "how they can win"?"

S Potnis: "Rajat Bhatia has come a long way. He used to be my school roommate. Not many might know this but he was a pretty decent batsman."

Unadkat to Mishra, SIX runs, Eoin Morgan with a superlative attempt on the long on boundary, it was swung hard from a fuller length, and looked headed for maximum before Morgan decided to get in the way and leaped high in the air one-handed, he even got a hand to the ball but could not hold on, toppling over the ropes in the end, Kolkata have a win that was more comfortable than the margin of nine runs

Unadkat to Steyn, no run, 110.4 kph slower one outside off on a length, well bowled, he had set himself up for the big one over midwicket, but was surprised by the lack of pace and pulled out of the shot in the end

Unadkat to Steyn, no run, 117 kph delivery slanted across the batsman who looks to swing it away again but misses it completely
