Chasing a meager 116, KKR lost Manvinder Bisla (0) caught by Moises Henriques off Ravi Rampaul on the second ball of the run chase. Jacques Kallis was given a chance on three as Abhimanyu Mithun misjudged the catch by the boundary. Gautam Gambhir got stuck into Mithun smashing three successive boundaries off him in the fourth over. R Vinay Kumar struck in the sixth over when he had Gambhir (14) edge to Chris Gayle at slip.

Yusuf Pathan slammed a six off Murali Kartik in the eighth over. At the halfway stage, KKR were 61 for two, still requiring 55 more runs. Kartik got the dangerous Pathan (18) out LBW. Kallis (41) smashed consecutive boundaries off Mithun before the bowler came back to have him caught by Henriques. Needing 14 off the last three overs, Vinay Kumar had Manoj Tiwary (24) caught by Virat Kohli at cover to cause a brief moment of worry in the KKR dressing room. Ryan ten Doeschate hit a boundary in the 19th leaving his team to score five off the final over. Doeschate (11*) hit Vinay Kumar straight down the ground to finish the match in style as KKR crossed the line. 

Earlier, KKR won the toss and opted to field. After a slow start, KKR struck through Sachithra Senanayake when he had Cheteshwar Pujara (5) caught by Lakshmipathy Balaji at cover. RCB managed only 22 from the Power Play – the lowest score posted in the Power Play overs in this season of IPL. RCB got a move on as Gayle launched Ryan ten Doeschate for a six. Jacques Kallis got KKR their second wicket as Kohli (17) dragged one onto the stumps. At the halfway stage, RCB were 54 for two. 

Gayle (33), who was looking out of sorts, was put out of misery when he was beaten by Narine and Manvinder Bisla pulled off a sharp stumping. The KKR bowlers bowled tight lines to strangle the flow of runs. AB de Villiers (28) slammed Balaji for a six, before the bowler came back to have him caught behind, attempting a reverse sweep. Narine then trapped local lad Saurabh Tiwary (1) leg before wicket to leave RCB five down.

Henriques (11) perished in the 18th over caught in the deep off Kallis. Rampaul (0) and Mithun (2) departed off Narine to give him his fourth wicket and with it the Purple Cap. RCB eventually crawled to 115 for nine.

Presentation

Gambhir: "We don't want to think too much about whether we're going to reach the playoffs or not, we still need to play good cricket, we're the defending champions and just need to keep playing in the same way. It was a very professional effort from the bowlers, a lot of credit needs to go the bowling department and to Jacques [Kallis] for the way he handled the chase. It was a difficult wicket but we put in a very professional effort. I'm a strong believer that the captain is only as good as his team. When everything clicks, you look like a great captain, but when it's not working you like a very funny kind of a captain."

Kohli: "It's a wrong time to have that loss, we weren't good enough on the day. It was a hard enough wicket that you could score runs, the guys got starts but there were a few unfortunate dismissals, a few errors of judgement but all credit to Kolkata, they'll bowled pretty well. AB [de Villiers] and Moises [Henriques] were important wickets at the end, they probably could have added the 20 or 30 more runs that would have made the difference. It got pretty close but all credit to KKR, they bowled well on the slowish track. We're not thinking about the playoffs, we just want to win our next two games."
