Dwayne Smith is the Man of the Match
Suresh Raina: When I say my baby, It's been the best feeling ever. I've been playing all these years and it's a best reason to miss a couple of games. I think we have to win each and every game. Smithy chipped in and bowled those crucial 4 overs. It was a good game for us, but still we have another tight game coming up against Mumbai Indians.
Gautam Gambhir: I thought the intensity was down and we didn't bat properly. Never got the momentum. Always difficult to defend a total like that. Losing wickets will always put pressure on the middle orders. We lost wickets in clutters and it is harsh to expect so much from the middle order. It's just one of those bad days where nothing worked for us. But, we still have one more game and we gotta show what we've got. We don't want to keep thinking about the other results, just concentrate on what works for us.
Gujarat Lions won by 6 wickets and they move to second spot in the points table.
