So that is it from me, Suneer Chowdhary, for the night, I will be back with you tomorrow for the two matches. Hope you had a good evening following our commentary!

Presentation:

Gautam Gambhir: Look, it was just one of the days when things go right, the way the pair of Kallis and McCullum batted was simply superb. And then we bowled well as well. If the team batting first can get to 190, it just shows that the wicket was really good. Credit to the entire team the way they played. (Pommie Mbwanga, hosting the presentation, points out that Gambhir was being too modest)

Daniel Vettori: We can always look back at the dropped catches but you also look back at the innings Gambhir played and doff your hats off. We now go home for a week, two vital games coming up and will want to win those two matches.

Gambhir is the man of the match as expected.

An excellent innings of 93 from Gautam Gambhir helped Kolkata through to 190 on a supposedly slow track. There were quick 40s from Brendon McCullum and Jacques Kallis too. On the other hand, Gayle got 86, but there were no 40s from the others. In fact, no-one else crossed 20 for Bangalore and in the end, that proved to be the difference to go with the fact that Kolkata bowled brilliantly.
