That will be it from us for this game. You can catch the last league game of this IPL (oh already?) now. Till then, this is Abhishek Purohit signing off. Cheers!

Gayle is the Man of the Match. Gayle: "This has been one of the longest runs I have ever had, in terms of consistency. The team has been tremendous, the fans as well. All the support has been great. You need to have the courage to go out there to get the job done, it is God;s gift so I am thankful. Teams are going to come with new plans at us. We were chasing a low total, one of us had to be there till the end."

Vettori: "Gayle has been responsible for the turnaround, he has been outstanding, our fielding and bowling has been good as well, especially Zaheer today. With Dilshan leaving we had to try out a few things. All the departments are doing well, and even Aravind and Mithun did well today."

Dhoni: "If you are 4-5 down in the start, it is always catch up in this format. We tried to get a decent total on the board in the end. It was doing a bit in the first few overs, we should have delayed the attack. At the end, it started to get better. You have to make sure you have to get some runs at least towards the end. We are not bothered about where we finish, if you want to win the tournament you have to beat the best teams."

Hang around for the presentation

Gayle: "It's a huge achievement to get the orange cap. The support from the team has been tremendous. Getting the big hits is what T20 is all about. To see so many people cheering gives me energy, and I wanted to give the crowd some entertainment."

Gayle has 511 runs from nine games, and has the orange cap now. And Bangalore have also qualified for the Champions League with their top of the table finish

guruprasad: "RCB's heavy dependence on Gayle and Kohli, and lack of batting form of other batsmen may come back and bite them in the big matches."

don: "CSK would hope for Mumbai to win, as that would give them a second position in the table."
