Praven Kumar is the Man of the Match

Suresh Raina: It was a very crucial game. Games in Kolkata are always special. Credit goes to our bowlers, they took those crucial wickets (which was lacking earlier) and again Baz and Smith gave us a good partnership. When you have too many options, you get confused. You always back your best bowler to bowl in the final overs. When Yusuf was batting, I thought I will give one over to Shivil and then to Tambe. I got a bit confused. DK and PK, they really bowl well in the death overs. He (Bravo) is our best death bowler and he has done really well. But with the way Yusuf and Shakib were going, it's always going to be tough. I think KKR is a very difficult team to beat and the way things have gone today, I'm very happy with the team tonight. When Finch is there in the middle, you always have license in that 7-8 overs and that's what I said to the coach. Sending him down the order really paid off. I'm flying to Holland to meet my wife tomorrow and I'm all excited.

Gautam Gambhir: The way Shakib and Yusuf batted was brilliant. Lot of credit must go to PK with the way he swung the ball. They restricted us to an average score. We have been batting really well but as I said, losing 3-4 wickets inside 6 overs won't help. We have been looking forward for the contribution from the middle order and that's what they did today. Shakib is a quality bowler and they were swinging at everything that was thrown at them. DK played a very good knock and that's what changed the game .
