Kolkata have ended their tournament on a high, beating the table-toppers. They bowled well to limit them to a below-par score and followed up with a dominating display with the bat to win by nine wickets. Join us for the presentation in a bit.

"Hopefully, I'll come back again for KKR next year," is what Ganguly just said.

Bravo: "We didn't get enough runs, but I must give credit to the guys. Had we got 20-25 more, it would have been a different ball game. The pitch was on the slow side, and had we taken a couple of early wickets we could have put some pressure of them."

Ganguly: "We've disappointed this year because I felt we had a good team this year to go all the way. We let ourselves down in a few crucial moments. The Kings XI game and the Bangalore game in Bangalore, we should have done better. We'll turn up better prepared and hopefully we'll give the crowd a better tournament next year."

Murali Kartik is the Man of the Match.

Kartik: "It was a good wicket. I wouldn't mind bowling on it everyday. I've had my moments and been quite economical. Taking the pace off the ball is an art and all spinners have done well. I've enjoyed every IPL, the kind of players we have in the dressing room we have under-performed."

Thanks for tuning in and sending us your feedback. That concludes the league stage of the tournament and we turn our attention to the semi-finals. Mumbai take on Bangalore at the DY Patil Stadium on April 21st, so see you then. Bye.
