Members of the Knight riders:

Royal Challengers from the very first ball, they have started to struggle for taking runs. IPL's Season 2 runners up have not showed their presence in the field very much. Ganguly keep on rotating his bowlers and bowlers too bowled very well to keep up their captain's expectation. Angelo Mathew who was the man of the match in the last match played against Deccan Chargers took two wickets and put Royals under control in scoring runs.

The Bangalore team could only set a modest target 136 before the Knight riders and it was comfortably achieved by Kolkata team in 19.2 overs without much hiccups.

Tiwari (50) and Hodge (50) smashed half-centuries, providing their side a flying start with their 101-run stand. Ganguly took 23 runs to his side and helped his team to continue in the winning streak. Ganguly yet again showing his captaincy talent in the field.

At last Knight riders marked their victory easily against Royals challengers in 19.2 overs.
