Balaji is the Man of the Match for his four wickets. Balaji: "In t20, bowlers get into the other end, today I got my momentum going. Jacques and Lee gave us the start though. It gives a lot of pleasure when you get a top player like de Villiers."
Gautam Gambhir: "It was important for us to get on the board, we have the quality in the team, if we play to our potential, then we will be hard to beat. Balaji's bowling today was the best I have seen in a Twenty20 competition."
Daniel Vettori: "It was a spectacular performance from us with the ball. That opening spell from Lee, Kallis and Balaji set us back and we could not recover. It was exceptional bowling from them. We continually lost wickets."
RCB managed to convert 125 for 1 to 165 for 8 when KKR batted but Kallis got the big wicket of Gayle and Balaji's four strikes put RCB out of the game.
