You almost feel cheated when a Twenty20 game is this one-sided because this is a format so conducive to a close finish. A 40-run defeat is massive and Kolkata's chase had no life at any stage.

There will be a live chat with Matty Hayden tomorrow, between 1345 and 1415 IST. Make sure you catch that, and ask him what's up with Chennai Super Kings this season, why he's using the mongoose, and whether he misses that Orange Cap. Send your questions in to

Ganguly: "It was a 150 wicket, but David [Warner] played a blinder. He kept clearing the ground, we tried. It was a slow pitch, it gripped, seamers were going for runs, spin was the only option. We need to bat better, it was an important toss to win here. Hopefully we can improve."

Gambhir: "Warner's was one of the best innings I have seen, especially on this track. 180 was always a very good total. We know how to play on such a track, it's difficult for a new team to adjust to this pitch. Umesh has good pace, he has a good future."

Warner, the Man of the match: "I just assessed the conditions and backed myself. I had to knuckle down after six overs and stay in the middle. Anywhere between 160-180 was going to be a good total. Collingwood was perfect, he played terrific and assessed the conditions well."

Right, that's about it from us at Cricinfo today. Remember to catch the replay of the Warner-Collingwood partnership and Hussey's catch. You can switch off after that, the rest was mediocre. Cheers.

McDonald to Langeveldt, OUT, the off stump has been uprooted by a length ball that cut back into the right-hander and took the inside edge as well, well that's that! Delhi have walked all over Kolkata.

CK Langeveldt b McDonald 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

McDonald to Kartik, OUT, what happened there? McDonald bowled a yorker and Kartik had all sorts of trouble keeping it out, then he didn't know where the ball was and wandered down the pitch, Dinesh Karthik scampered in front of the stumps, picked up the ball and broke the stumps, Kartik's bat was in the air as the bails came off

M Kartik run out (†Karthik) 1 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Collingwood to Agarkar, OUT, caught! Agarkar makes room and drives the ball back powerfully towards Collingwood's left, he takes it just above his head, he takes a tough catch so easily does Collingwood, minimum fuss maximum effect

AB Agarkar c & b Collingwood 17 (13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 130.76

McDonald to Saha, FOUR runs, Saha winds up and pulls a gentle delivery from McDonald to the square leg boundary, can he hit three more of those?

"In general, I don't see how Kolkata can be a genuine winning team in this tournament. Perhaps, all that Kolkata needs is a better reliable replacement for Ganguly. I can't believe I am saying this," says Amar.

Bhatia to Agarkar, FOUR runs, Bhatia bowls a low ball outside off, Agarkar swings and gets a bottom edge through Karthik's legs for four

The players are taking a time out. Wonder what KKR are discussing. They need 17.50 an over from the remaining four overs.

Yadav to Mathews, OUT, Yadav comes back with a screaming yorker that's dead straight and beats Mathews completely, it hit middle stump after the batsman tried to make room

AD Mathews b Yadav 24 (18b 3x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

Yadav to Mathews, FOUR runs, flicked and flicked more powerfully than I first thought, it beat the dive of the fielder on the square leg boundary

"Kolkata need a 'Harbhajan'", says Angik. I reckon they need two.

Nannes to Mathews, FOUR runs, the fielder at mid-on is in the circle and Mathews gets under a full ball and clouts it over the infield, he cleared his front foot out of the way to create space to play the shot
Yadav to Saha, FOUR runs, Saha gets the first ball away to the fine leg boundary, he needs to pull off a miracle now
Yadav to Hussey, OUT, and that certainly won't do! Hussey has struggled for timing and this time he hits a full toss straight to Gambhir at midwicket

DJ Hussey c Gambhir b Yadav 29 (32b 2x4 1x6) SR: 90.62

Mishra to Hussey, SIX runs, he's hit this one! He got under a length ball, cleared his front foot out of the way, and hoisted it back over the bowler's head
Yadav to Mathews, FOUR runs, short ball, too short and Mathews has enough time and space to pull powerfully off the front foot to the midwicket boundary
Bhatia to Hussey, FOUR runs, Hussey moves back and cuts the ball hard and late, placing it fine of the fielder at short third man
Bhatia to Gayle, OUT, huge wicket! Gayle hits a length ball towards deep midwicket where Mishra runs to his left and holds a crucial catch on the move, is that effectively the end of the contest?

CH Gayle c Mishra b Bhatia 30 (21b 2x4 2x6) SR: 142.85

Bhatia to Hussey, FOUR runs, short and wide outside off stump, Hussey cuts hard and places it well enough to get four to the point boundary
Mishra to Gayle, 1 run, Dropped! Sehwag drops a steepler! Gayle swung hard at the ball and top-edged it high to square leg, Sehwag tried catching with the fingers pointing up and the ball burst through his fingers
McDonald to Gayle, FOUR runs, length again and Gayle drives powerfully over the fielder at mid-on, the camera could barely follow the ball, it was hit that hard
McDonald to Gayle, SIX runs, it looks effortless, Gayle simply waited for the length ball and sent it sailing over long-on, lots of bottom hand and several rows back
McDonald to Tiwary, OUT, bowled by the offcutter! It kept a touch low and beat Tiwary's defense, Kolkata's chase is in serious trouble but their best batsmen are yet to come

MK Tiwary b McDonald 0 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Mishra to Mandeep Singh, OUT, Mandeep charges and swings, the ball dips and spins, it's the legbreak and it leaves Mandeep stranded, Karthik collects and flattens two stumps

Mandeep Singh st †Karthik b Mishra 0 (4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Nannes to Ganguly, OUT, bowled him! This time Ganguly moves a long way across his stumps and tries to flick, the leg stump is exposed and Nannes flattens it with a full and fast delivery, Ganguly was struggling against Nannes and now it's over

SC Ganguly b Nannes 5 (10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Nannes to Ganguly, FOUR runs, this time he backs away and hits a length ball past the bowler for four, Ganguly moves to five off eight balls
McDonald to Gayle, SIX runs, he hit this with the middle, heaving it over the deep square leg boundary, first six of the innings
McDonald to Gayle, FOUR runs, this time Gayle connects with the flick, hitting it with the inside half of the bat and placing it between square leg and short fine leg
