Well, that's all we have from this match tonight. Do join us tomorrow as Bhilwara Kings and Manipal Tigers clash. Till the next time, good night, take care.

9:50pm Time for the presentation.

Hamilton Masakadza, player of the match: "Batting with Sols [Mire] is very easy. Once i fuelled out a little bit around there, the power game was always I looked to."

Tillakaratne Dilshan, Gujarat Giants captain: "I think 20-30 short. We had a great start but we lost quick wickets and lost a bit of momentum. Spinners changed it. We can see tomorrow how the body is. After the ball gets wet, the dew sets in and the bowlers can't grip the ball."

Gautam Gambhir, India Capitals captain: "It's important to win, individual scores do not matter. Ashley stepped up today. We've got the depth in our batting, plenty of allrounders as well. Helps to have depth and hopefully he's in good touch. [Taylor] injured his hands and hence we did not send him in today. First time after I retired [played in front of the Gautam Gambhir stand]. When I was 14-15, there used to be steps there. I remember how much Kotla has given to me, to Delhi cricket and Indian cricket as well."

9:40pm: That's as clinical a chase as can be. Mire went berserk at the top, Masakadza ensured the momentum was kept up in the middle overs, and that meant the contest was effectively finished by the time the likes of Nurse and Bhatia came together. A top-class bowling effort followed by a clinical chase is exactly what Gautam Gambhir would've wanted from his team tonight, and they've delivered.
