10.10 pm So the tournament gets off with the ball besting the bat on a pitch that did have some grass on it. Kolkata had upstaged the champions who have some work to do in sorting out their batting order, or at least what each player's role is. But like Rohit said this is a big competition and the next game coming at you is Delhi v Bangalore. Hope to have your company then, but for now this is Alagappan Muthu saying good night

Jacques Kallis is the Man of the Match "Had a good few months off. Nice to catch up with friends and family, but I worked had on my cricket to help Kolkata this season. There was more bounce this season which suited. Kept the good balls out at the start and cashed it in the death. Morne started great at the start with the ball and Narine was brilliant as well. I probably haven't got too many years left and I'm just looking forward to having some fun in the middle"

"We've got a very good bowling attack and if we put runs on the board most of the times we'll end up winning,"Gautam Gambhir says, "A quality batter like Kallis knows when to accelerate and if either me or him stays till the 15th over we'll get a good score. We have Morne's pace and Narine and Chawla in the spin department and Vinay's pretty good at the death as well"

"Disappointing, first game of the season. Lots to learn from this game. We will tak the positives from this game, although there weren't many. I hope the guys stay positive and enjoy each other's company. It's a long tournament," says Rohit Sharma. "They batted really well, we didn't get a wicket when we wanted and they knew with eight wickets in hand they went after the bowling. We tried our best, Malinga bowled really well and I hope the guys can turn it around as quickly as possible. Fair bit of grass on the wicket, there was a bit of bounce. Odd balls were stopping and coming so it wasn't true. It played well but we didn't bat well. Still 13 more games and I hope we come back strongly"

9.55 pm Gambhir was highly confident with his bowling attack and they showed it off in restricting the big-name Mumbai to a very ordinary total. Morne Morkel set the tone early on with his extra bounce and pace and Sunil Narine's variations proved too good in the death

Pushkar: "I think Kallis should be the MoM instead of Narine. Batting doesnt seem to be that easy on this pitch... and Mumbai bowling lineup is not that bad"

Pratyush: "What is the world was Polly doing? Was he playing for being not out? Pathetic from a player of his stature!" In his defence the game was pretty much done when he came out

Chawla to Gautam, OUT, that's emphatic. Misreads the googly as he races down the track. Misses wildly and Uthappa breaks the stumps. Kolkata beat the defending champions by 41 runs, their biggest win over Mumbai
19.5

Chawla to Pollard, 1 run, quicker and flatter delivery outside off, chopped to short third man
19.4

Chawla to Gautam, 1 run, down the track and swings this flighted delivery down to long-on

Harish: "How not to chase a 160 odd target ! Mumbai are setting a sample . Do not underestimate any bowling attack with your power hitting skills . 50 from 5 is different from 65 from 5 ."

Chawla to Gautam, no run, well flighted outside off and he was looking to sweep it. Misses. They're checking the stumping but Gautman has dragged his back foot back just in time

Chawla to Gautam, 2 runs, comes down the track to get to the pitch of a flighted ball on off stump. Lovely drive over the off side

Idrees Kanchwal: "GAME, SET & MATCH SUNIL NARINE!!"
