Right then, please hop over to this tab to follow commentary from the RCB-RR game. This is Abhishek Purohit signing off. Cheers

Narine is the Man of the Match for his 5 for 19. Narine: "I look just to contain and hit the right areas. Pretty much everyone is on BBM [when asked whether he is in touch with his West Indies team-mates]."

Gautam Gambhir: "We left it till the end. You need to play intelligent cricket. We should have finished it off when we needed 13 off 12. We should have played better as a batting unit."

Adam Gilchrist: "The guys fought well with the bat, some exceptional spin bowling from Narine and Co. Always felt Harmeet had it in him."

The KKR dugout is looking totally stunned. They were 73 for 2 at one stage. But you never know what you get with KKR.

Chawla and Bhatt brought Punjab back and Harmeet defended nine runs nervelessly off the final over. Not to forget PK's excellent over, the 19th, which went for just four

Charindra: "Gotta feel for the Kolkata fans. KKR have the most passionate and most loyal support in the world, and they keep letting the fans down year after year. They got rid of Ganguly, and now his team is leading the table."

Achuthan: "Slow and Steady win the race,only if you are a tortoise,not a Knight Rider."

James: "Very glad KKR lost, perhaps they will now drop YK Pathan who has contributed nothing this IPL. As far as this match goes there was one MAJOR failing, Bisla & Tiwary to push on after slowish starts, and Hasan and Pathan throwing their wickets away. A shame for the home crowd!"

Harmeet Singh to Das, 1 run, cannot get it away, the legbreaks, those harmless looking legbreaks from a medium-pacer have done it for Punjab, tries to swing one of them over midwicket, cannot time it at all, it rolls away to deep midwicket
19.5

Harmeet Singh to Bhatia, 1 run, Bhatia gets a taste of how it feels to generate some power off slower ones, gets it towards long off, another pick-up fluffed, but they are satisfied with one this time
19.4
2
Harmeet Singh to Bhatia, 2 runs, down the track, hits it down the ground, long on runs in, stops the ball, seems to have kept them to one, but he cannot pick it up cleanly, they hesitate and eventually get across for the second

Harmeet Singh to ten Doeschate, OUT, he's bowled Tendo., the legbreak appears innocuous, but it has taken out Tendo, who looked to swipe it through midwicket from outside off stump, an inside edge results, also finds its way on to the stumps

Harmeet Singh to ten Doeschate, 1 leg bye, legbreak arrives on a length on leg stump, Tendo has already swung around to swing it behind square leg, but somehow misses it

Nine off the final over from Harmeet
