A week down the line, all we would remember from this match is that catch. We'd remember it for a some time to come. It's etched in my head now. Thanks for all your comments and feedback. Tune in for more tomorrow. Ciao ciao.

"It was an incredible win," says Gautam Gambhir. "We deserved some luck too as we have had a number of these last ball finishes. Once the ball got a little old, it was difficult to hit. Chris scored useful runs, so did Surya. So we had it in mind that once the ball got that old, we had a chance. We were scratchy with the bat, and with the ball, so we need to improve on the areas. The catch was unbelievable and Chris deserved the man of the match for that catch."

"I slipped and I though if i stood up and dropped the catch, it would look very silly, so just stayed down," says Chris Lynn, who is also the Man of the Match.. for a catch.. how many times do you see that..

"We lost that game rather than KKR winning that one," says Virat Kohli. "We played some really good cricket to restrict them to a total, built partnerships, but messed up the game in the last few overs"

KKR have pulled off a blinder.. Give it to Chris Lynn for that mad catch, give it to the last few overs at the death.. give it to tight bowling to an out of form Yuvraj...RCB continue to find ways of falling short.. Gautam Gambhir lets out a cry of relief.. Kohli is emotionless and quietly walks away.. How did they manage to lose this one is beyond me. Narine bowled an excellent spell and got the big wicket of Kohli just before finishing his quota..

Kiran Gummalla: "Hats off Vinay. You did it. Brilliant bowling. You did it once and you did it again."

Martin Jose: "Yuvraj lucky to be not facing last few overs..Will anyone blame ABd & A Morkel for slow batting!!!"

Vinay Kumar to Morkel, 1 run, low full toss, he hasn't timed it. it goes only as far as long off. This is a jailbreak of a monumental standard..

Four of last one..

19.5

Vinay Kumar to Morkel, 2 runs, fuller delivery on off, thumped down the ground and they pick up a couple to long on

Nandakiran: "Man of the Match. Give it to Lynn already. What an incredible catch."

Pavan: "Chrisssssss Lynnnnnnn!!!! Spectacular under pressure catch.. It cant get better"

Vinay Kumar to de Villiers, OUT, this is a blinder! this is madness.. this is the maddest baddest ever catch.. AB did what AB does.. Whacks the short of length delivery to deep midwicket, where Lynn lines himself up for the catch.. but he slips.. Despite that, he somehow straightens his body on the ground, keeps an eye on the ball, arches his body back and takes a catch sitting down.. freakish catch.. KKR are stealing this one.. Lynn is a hero.. watch that catch to believe that..

serious buzz in the ground..tension writ on Yuvi's face in the dug out

19.3

Vinay Kumar to Morkel, 1 run, that's a full toss, high full toss outside of.. it's hit in the air towards cover but lands safely.. could have gone outside had he made a proper connection

7 off 4

19.2
1
Vinay Kumar to de Villiers, 1 run, he walks all around the pitch before sweeping the length delivery to deep midwicket.. just a single

AB now.. tension mounting.. AB goes for a chat with Albie.. GG comes over to talk to Vinay.. Conferences everywhere.. Long-off, long-on in place

19.1
1
Vinay Kumar to Morkel, 1 run, it's a yorker length slower ball from round the wicket, Albie pushes it to long on for a single

Last over.. Nine needed..Vinay has the ball.. This chase was supposed to be an easy one.. how did it ever come to this..Morkel on strike..
