So that's a wrap from this game, until the next game, stay safe and have fun.

As for the IPL, we have a game in Mumbai starting in a little while as Mumbai Indians, who have lost the toss will take on Gujarat Lions. You can follow that game here.

So, the Sunrisers are yet open their account and will have to wait until Monday, when they take on Mumbai to do so. While Kolkata have two wins out of three and will be hoping to improve on that when they face the Kings XI in Mohali on Tuesday.

Man of the Match Gautam Gambhir: "Very important to win this game especially after losing the last game. We needed to get some momentum before we play the home games. I thought it was a 170 wicket and we knew that the ball will come on nicely under the lights. "The bowlers took wickets up front and I think we paced the chase perfectly. There is no pressure on Sunil Narine. He will get more confident as the tournament progresses and he is out trump card. He will definitely get better."
...
Player of the match is Gautam Gambhir. He now wears the orange cap.

Another excellent opening partnership from Robin Uthappa and Gautam Gambhir, who finished unbeaten on 90 and added their ninth 50-wicket partnership in IPL to make things easy. Then Gambhir saw them home by eight wickets to bring up their second win of the tournament.
