Deccan goofed up the chase big time after a superb fifty from Gilchrist. Laxman, Gibbs, Symonds and Sharma got out to poor shots and they eventually paid the price. Credit to Kolkata's bowlers for not giving up and credit to Owais Shah and Angelo Mathews for stunning counter attacks after Vaas had left Kolkata's innings in disarray. After enduring two poor campaigns, Kolkata will be thrilled with this result.

The presentation ceremony will happen once all the backslapping ends ...

A few awards are being given out, Mathews picks up some cash for hitting the most sixes. Gibbs pockets some moolah for taking a catch, that of Hodge.

"We were in the box seat, great start with the ball and bat but we didn't finish well. We panicked a little bit. It wasn't smart cricket. It was gettable on that wicket, all credit to the Knight Riders," says Gilchrist.

Ganguly: "We were ordinary for the first ten overs in both innings but we pulled back in the last ten. We've got some improvements to make, fielding is an area. We dropped Adam twice and we were lucky to win from there. Owais and Mathews batted outstandingly to take us to 161."

"And that's all we have from the presentation area," says Shastri with finality. No Man-of-the-Match award? Okay then, my vote goes to Angelo Mathews.

So that's it from us at Cricinfo for today. Tomorrow's a double header: Mumbai take on Rajasthan at the Brabourne at 3.00 IST, followed by Punjab v Delhi in Mohali at 8.00 pm. See you there, cheers.

Sharma to Suman, no run

Kolkata have done it! Ishant beats the bat once again with the final delivery and Ganguly sprints in with joy on his face as fireworks light up the DY Patil Stadium

Sharma to Jaskaran Singh, 1 run

played down the ground for one run only, Kolkata are on the brink of victory

Sharma to Jaskaran Singh, 2 runs

terrific save on the deep backward square leg boundary! The fielder sprints across on the boundary, throws himself full length, and swats the ball back in

Sharma to Suman, 1 run

Ishant what are you doing? He pulled off a spectacular dive to field a straight drive, he then tries to throw hard at the non striker's end and concedes an over throw, he needn't have thrown, he could have got up, ambled to the stumps and knocked off the bails

Deccan need four off each ball.

Sharma to Suman, no run

full ball outside off stump, Suman swings across the line and misses, the keeper collects and runs to the stumps to prevent them stealing a bye

Sharma to Suman, no run

Ishant makes amends with a terrific slower ball, Suman didn't know what was happening and got beaten

Sharma to Suman, (no ball)

wide! Full and down leg side, oh it's a no ball as well! So free hit, Ishant what are you doing?

Deccan need 17 off the final over. I reckon it's too much to get. Ishant has the ball.

Langeveldt to Suman, 1 run

low full toss, driven hard down the ground, only a single

Langeveldt to Suman, 1 wide

bouncer, it's too high and it's been called wide

Langeveldt to Jaskaran Singh, 1 run

full toss, the batsman hits it down the ground for one, Deccan need more

Langeveldt to Jaskaran Singh, no run

Jaskaran Singh has a wild swing at a short ball from Langeveldt. Misses.

Deccan need 20 off nine balls.

Langeveldt to Vaas, OUT

bowled him! Langeveldt's doing it for KKR! Good length and straight from the bowler, Vaas aims for midwicket and misses, the ball hits the top of middle stump, Vaas struck with his first ball and now goes first ball

Chaminda Vaas b Langeveldt 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0
Langeveldt to Suman, 1 run

he's driven it into the stumps at the bowler's end, else he would have got two for that shot

Langeveldt to Suman, no run

Suman lets Langeveldt know what he's up to by backing away too early, Langeveldt delivers wide outside off, Suman lets it go and looks expectantly at the umpire

Deccan need 21 off the last two overs. Vaas is the new batsman.
