Kolkata Knight Riders won by 35 runs

Warner: We wanted to keep them under 150-160, but they managed to acore 167. However, when you lose so many wickets under the first 10 overs, it is hard to come back. Their spinners bowled really well during the middle overs. Our next few games are on good wickets. Our bowlers need to step up there and hopefully, we can start well with the bat there.

Gambhir: It was a professional effort after they had put us in. 160-165 on this wicket was a very good total. Everyone chipped in and it was very satisfying to see the guys hit the ball well. We have got Russell, if he would have fired we would have got 180 odd. The spinners did extremely well out there. Umesh got us off to a great start with those two wickets in the over. We bat really deep and it was a collective decision to go deep batting wise. We knew we could control the game with three spinners and we did do well. We have been unlucky to play one 12-over and one 10-over game. We would ideally want to play a full 40-over game everytime

Umesh Yadav is the Man of the Match
