So, that finishes the proceedings at Kanpur where the local boy's side defeated the visitors from Kolkata in a comprehensive manner. The IPL caravan now moves to another new venue, Raipur, where the Delhi Dardevils take on the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Do join us tomorrow for that game. Till then, it's goodbye from Aadya, Kaushal, and Kislaya.

Smith: "I always wait until the skipper gives me the ball. Disappointed couldn't get the runs but glad the team won. I don't bowl in the nets really but I back myself whenever I do. I haven't bowled a lot in the IPL, not many captains have trusted me with the ball. Jerome Taylor has been brought in, I hope we can play well against Mumbai."
...
DWAYNE SMITH has been adjudged as the MAN OF THE MATCH for his fantastic figures of 4/8 from his 4 overs.
...
Raina: "I think the last two games were very important for us, Smith bowled really well and bowled crucial four overs, and the rest bowled well too. I was glad I won the toss, I hope we play well against Mumbai. Hopefully Praveen will be back for the next match."
...
Gambhir: "It was a decent wicket, we could have gotten 150, but 120 was not enough. If you keep losing wickets, it gets difficult to get momentum. In the last game, two of us batted till the last over and got 180. We tried not to change the side much, but it didn't work for us. There's one more match for us, we don't want to depend on other results, we'll try to play it to our potential."

A really good victory by the Gujarat Lions. They win by 6 wickets in the 14th over. This would give a massive boost to their net run rate, as they jump to the 2nd spot in the points table. Dwayne Smith took 4 wickets in the first innings to set things up for the Lions and Raina, through his unbeaten fifty guided his side home. Problems increasing by the day for the Knight Riders, while the Lions would breathe a sigh of relief.
