back of a length on off, Raina leaps and stylishly whips it to square leg to seal Gujarat Lions' six-wicket win
11pm: Gujarat Lions move up to second on the points table with their eighth win. They have also lifted their net run-rate from -0.747 to -0.479.
Lions, however, aren't assured of a berth in the playoffs berth yet. The returning Suresh Raina steered the chase on a green track at Green Park, which was hosting its first T20, with an unbeaten 53 off 36 balls. His inside-out drives were classy, but it was Dwayne Smith who set the match up with his career-best figures of 4 for 8. Lions, however, will be sweating on the fitness of Praveen.
KKR's tactics backfired today: Chawla was promoted to No.4 and then did not bowl in the chase. Shakib din't bowl either. Neither Morne nor Holder was given the new ball. They missed #DreRuss?
Nikhil Kalro's report will tell you the full story.
Gambhir: I thought we did not turn up properly. It was a decent wicket. We could have scored 150-160. When you end up with 124 it is difficult to restrict the opposition. It was one of those days where nothing worked for us.
Raina: These last two games are important for us. Smith bowled well. He is not just a batsman. I always feel he is an allrounder and that set the game up for us. I am glad I won the toss. We need to play well against Mumbai Indians on Saturday. Praveen is fine. Hopefully, he will be back.
Dwayne Smith, Man of the Match: I am not one to be frustrated if I don't get the ball. But I'm willing to bowl. I don't really bowl in the nets. I just back myself. Jerome Taylor is there in Mumbai along with Pollard. Looking forward to it.
Gummalla: "Raina back on top with 4038 runs. Most runs by a batsman in IPL
JAY: "KKR without Andre Russell is not the same team"
A: "Very rare. The opening batsman getting out on the first ball of the innings becomes Man of the Match!"
Thanks for tuning in tonight. That is all we have for you from his game. Good night
