  • Right then! That is it from this game! The second match of Super Saturday between Hyderabad and Bangalore is already underway. So, switch the tabs and join us there. But from here, it is a goodbye!
  • Rashid Khan is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH for his two wickets that turned the tide back in Gujarat's favour.
  • The Presentation ceremony...
  • Gujarat will thank their bowlers for the performance they put on as a unit today and got their team over the line. Mohammad Shami and Yash Dayal were brilliant in the Powerplay picking up three wickets and Lockie Ferguson too got an early wicket. Once they were able to get that fifth wicket, the match was in their control but it got real edgy in the death overs but as usual their talisman, Rashid Khan picked up a couple of wickets and Yash Dayal and Alzarri Joseph finished off proceedings very well. Gujarat just seem to find some magic when needed the most.
  • Kolkata will be kicking themselves at the moment because their bowlers had given them the platform to go and win this match but it was a horrendous start with the bat that has been the fatal blow for them. In the middle overs, it was the pair of Rinku Singh and Venkatesh Iyer that got Kolkata back into the game but wickets kept on tumbling and Venkatesh Iyer ended up giving his wicket away when things looked to be in control. It was just too much to do for Andre Russell who gave it his all but just couldn't get his team over the line.
  • Wow! What a ripper of a match we have witnessed here! Just like last night, another West Indian bowler, Alzarri Joseph this time keeps his calm in the final over and gets the job done for his team. Gujarat edge Kolkata to get their sixth win of the season and they are now back on the top of the table.
