Presentation:

Debabrata Das is the Man of the Match for his crucial cameo and here is what he says: "We got a good start and we were very confident after that. I just tried to play my game and it paid off."

Gautam Gambhir, the KKR Skipper says: "When that game got washed out against Perth, our hopes ended. But we're a quality side and we showed that today. Bisla started the attack and gave us the momentum. 180 plus on this track was a very good effort. Very disappointed with the way things have gone in this tournament though. Hopefully we can do well in the next IPL and qualify for the Champions League next year too."

Martin Jaarsveld, the losing Titans Captain says: "They were like a runaway train towards the end of their innings. We have a big game against Delhi on Tuesday. It's a bit of a hammer-blow but we have to pick ourselves up."
Kolkata Knight Riders defeat Titans by 99 runs.
