It was a clinical performance from Lions. With this win Lions have claimed the top spot again. Dinesh Karthik and McCullum played well to provide must needed win for Lions. Finch played cameo 29 runs off 10 balls to assist Karthik. 

From 24 for 4 to 158 for 4, what a comeback by Kolkata. It was a very good bowling from Lions upfront but it was Yusuf-Shakib show. They scored briskly to help Kolkata after disastrous start. They both scored 134 runs in 14.1 overs.

It is a clash between table toppers Kolkata Knight Riders and Gujarat Lions at Eden Gardens. They both are on 12 points. Gujarat lost last three encounters and Kolkata won their last match.

Meanwhile, Gujarat Lions won the toss and opted to field first. Kolkata are playing same side and Gujarat have brought in Tambe in place of Pradeep Sangwan. Raina need to get back to runs. He's probably the most consistent batsmen in all season.
