Goodbye from here! But hang on, the day is not done yet and we have another match coming up today. It is being played between Punjab and Delhi at the Wankhede stadium. Just switch the tabs and join us for the coverage of that game. Cheers.

Earlier in the day, a brilliant innings by Glenn Maxwell and a powerful finish by the one and only AB de Villiers powered Bangalore to a massive score of 204. Kolkata started off well with the ball but had no answers to the batting of Maxwell and AB de Villiers. In the end, the score of 204 turned out to be too big for them and they lost by 38 runs. No prizes for guessing the MAN OF THE MATCH, it is the one and only AB de Villiers.

Brilliant bowling from Bangalore. Kyle Jamieson was expensive but picked up three wickets. Mohammed Siraj was economical and so were their spinners. Harshal Patel continued his great form in this game and picked up Andre Russell in the last over. They never let the game slip away from them, as they picked up wickets at regular intervals. 

Kolkata were poor with the bat. Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana and Rahul Tripathi got starts but none of them could convert them into a big score, and they lost wickets at regular intervals. Skipper Morgan and Shakib Al Hasan too got going but the target was too big for them and fell at the wrong time. In the end, Andre Russell played some big shots but couldn't chase the massive target down.

Great performance by Bangalore! They have outplayed Kolkata in all departments and win by 38 runs. Kolkata never looked comfortable while chasing such a huge total on a tricky wicket.
