So that's that from me for tonight, it's been a long day but an exciting one. I will be back tomorrow for the only match of the evening, with the Kolkata Knight Riders hosting the Rajasthan Royals in what should be an interesting match-up too. Buhbye from me and a have very good day/night ahead! Suneer Chowdhary signing off.

-----------------

...but Bangalore has won their first game away from home and their seventh win in the tournament to make it to 14 points. Well-built batting, excellent finishing, fine bowling and but for a period of a few overs when Uthappa went hammer and tongs, Bangalore looked clearly the better side.

Lot of blame being attached to Ashok Dinda for his poor last over. He started off well tonight but wasn't able to finish it off, much like a lot of batsmen who lose form, he seems to be a tad off-colour this season, conceding far too many. More than anyone else, a break for a couple of games could help him clear his mind up.

-----------------

Devaraj: "Gayle-dashing opener and death bowler!!! how is that???!!!"

Pritpal Pabla: "Now pune are almost out in this year's IPL, I think they need to try their other players like Shrikant Wagh instead of Dinda, Harpreet Singh in place of Suman and Parvez Rasool in place of Nayar...."

Shuvam helps me out by putting this succinctly: "There were 3 turning points in this match: Mathews' 10 wides, Dinda's 26 run over and Robin Uthappa's dismissal."

-----------------

Presentation quotes.

Finch: Knew we had to take advantage in the first six but we fought well towards the end, well played from Robin and Angelo. Happy to have fought but disappointed to lose again. Inconsistencies have been the story of the tournament for us, the good stuff hasn't come together for us.

Kohli: As I said earlier, looking at another game and not as an away game, got tight in the end but good to get the points on board. Team effort today, Tiwary told me at Jaipur he wanted to open and he did well.

AB de Villiers is the man of the match: It was a very enjoyable game for me tonight, gave me a lot of pleasure. I do try and read the bowler's mind, premeditate a tad, but need to keep the basics after that. Does not work always but it did tonight.

Gayle to Dinda, 1 run, on his pads, keeps it up to the bat and flicked over the in-field to get him a single

24 off 6. Ironically it's Dinda on strike.
