    Magnificent Raina leads Gujarat revival

    Captains 84 seals steep chase against Kolkata to give his team a crucial win

  • Suresh Raina (MoM): It was an important game for us, do-or-die I would say and it was a good wicket. It was a good bowling comeback by us and we batted really well. Myself, Finchy, Baz and Jaddu. Nothing special, it was about staying in till the end. It was always team work. Taking Uthappa out at the right time was crucial for us. The idea was to not lose my wicket, no matter what. I think the batting has clicked for us, we can definitely improve our bowling and control the runs that we give in the initial six overs. But it's good, the way I am hitting the ball.

  • Player of the match - Suresh Raina

  • Gautam Gambhir: I thought we batted very well, but the Lions are a batting-heavy side. I thought we had enough runs, but the way Finchy and McCullum batted, the middle order didn't face much pressure. The ground was pretty much dry but as I said Raina batted well and it's good to see him get the runs, not against us though. We have a lot of positives to take from this game.

  • And the fortress has been breached! The Lions have managed to tame the knights by four wickets. A cloudburst may have interrupted the game, but it did Raina'd sixes as he led the from the front to hand Gujarat a much-needed win to raise them from the lower rung and put them in seventh. McCullum laid the platform at the start and is now the Orange cap holder. Presentation coming up in a bit.

  Full commentary

  • Phew! A roller coaster ride this one. Kolkata brought Narine back as an opener who gave them another flying start. Uthappa and Gambhir carried that momentum forward and Kolkata were 114/1 in 11.2 overs. Once that partnership was broken, Gujarat tightened the screws. Uthappa played brilliantly for his 72 (48), but Pandey couldn't get going. Finally, Gujarat were able to restrict them to a total of 187/5 which at half-way stage looked like 200-210. Gujarat, with the kind of batting firepower they have, would back themselves to chase this one. Stay tuned to find out!

But Pathan, not aware of the situation, stays in his crease at the non-striker's end. Meanwhile, McCullum throws it to the keeper, who hits the stump to find Yadav short.

  • What does the pitch say?Bit of a grass on the strip. The soft lustre on the pitch suggests that it's batsmen-friendly. A high-scoring game on the cards here at the Eden Gardens.

  • Suresh Raina: I think this wicket does something with the new ball, there was a bit of dew yesterday,we have been batting very well, and we need to look to regulate them and chase down the total. There have been a few changes in the side. James Faulkner gets a game and PK comes back in the side for Shivil Kaushik. Faulkner comes in for Andrew Tye.

  • Gautam Gambhir: We would have loved to bowl first as well, but you cannot control the toss, so we'll have to set a good target. We have only one change. Shakib-Al Hasan comes in for Colin de Grandhomme.

  • Gujarat Lions Won the Toss & Elected to Field

  • IPL 10 Match 23 Kolkata v Gujarat

    The Knight Riders have gelled well as a unit and have most men in form while the Lions are still searching for the right combination

  • Good evening and welcome to Match 23 of the IPL. It's a buoyant Kolkata Knight Riders taking on a struggling Gujarat Lions at the Eden Gardens today. The last time these two sides met, it was Lynnsanity on display while Gautam Gambhir too put his pedal to the metal as Kolkata walloped Raina & Co. with a ten-wicket win at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium. This time around though, the Lions will be hoping for a turnaround in fortunes. On whether they will be able to breach the knights' fortress remains to be seen.

  Full commentary

    Magnificent Raina leads Gujarat revival

    Captains 84 seals steep chase against Kolkata to give his team a crucial win

  • Suresh Raina (MoM): It was an important game for us, do-or-die I would say and it was a good wicket. It was a good bowling comeback by us and we batted really well. Myself, Finchy, Baz and Jaddu. Nothing special, it was about staying in till the end. It was always team work. Taking Uthappa out at the right time was crucial for us. The idea was to not lose my wicket, no matter what. I think the batting has clicked for us, we can definitely improve our bowling and control the runs that we give in the initial six overs. But it's good, the way I am hitting the ball.

  • Player of the match - Suresh Raina

  • Gautam Gambhir: I thought we batted very well, but the Lions are a batting-heavy side. I thought we had enough runs, but the way Finchy and McCullum batted, the middle order didn't face much pressure. The ground was pretty much dry but as I said Raina batted well and it's good to see him get the runs, not against us though. We have a lot of positives to take from this game.

  • And the fortress has been breached! The Lions have managed to tame the knights by four wickets. A cloudburst may have interrupted the game, but it did Raina'd sixes as he led the from the front to hand Gujarat a much-needed win to raise them from the lower rung and put them in seventh. McCullum laid the platform at the start and is now the Orange cap holder. Presentation coming up in a bit.
