Commentary

And with that we come to the end of an exciting, if slightly controversial day of IPL cricket. Both matches got a little one-sided in the end but the talk of the games were the Gilchrist and Kallis run-out incidents, two senior pros getting very worked up in the middle. That's it from me, Suneer Chowdhary, but will be back tomorrow for the Delhi v Bangalore encounter. Till then ciao and have a good day ahead!

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

Presentation:

Finch: We were very disappointing, 150 was too much on that wicket, did not bat too intelligently. We knew Narine was going to bat a few in the end and we had to cash in the first six.

Gambhir, also the man of the match tonight: Professional cricket from everyone, played smart cricket and lot of credit to Tendo for the way he batted. The bowlers bowled well too. Need to take it one game at a time, need to play quality cricket because we have a lot of quality in the dressing room.

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

As comprehensive as it can get for KKR and Pune's situation can be summed up by Allan Donald's reaction after that last wicket, he had a wry smile on his face as if to say, "that's how life is for us!"

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

Aaram: "Allan Donald with a ball in hand used to cut an intimidating figure; ah, how times change!" They do indeed.

shankar: "Last time I remember this reaction from Alan Donald he messed up the the run with Klusner on WC semi's against Australia." That would have hurt him much more I am sure.

Kapil: "Its sad to see Allan Donald like the way he is but he is responsible for this situation to certain extent.. Smith not playing initial games.. Dinda picked consistently even after failures.. And picking Marsh in almost all games and not playing Mendis against strong batting line ups"

Farhan Siddique: "@Shankar: That means you haven't seen him when Rahul Dravid hit him for Six."

Balaji to Parvez Rasool, OUT, whoa, what a catch! Balaji has taken a ripper! he was looking to go down the track and smash it back, the ball was a slower one and never came on to him, still manages to get a decent part of the bat on it, Balaji springs his hand out and grabs a superb catch, reflex, one-handed effort!

Balaji to Kumar, OUT, bowled him, sneaks through his defences this time! he was looking to play it off the back foot but the ball's gone so low that there was no way he was getting close to it from that position, beaten and the off-stump's lying flat
