   Match Scorecard  
Man of the Match : G Gambhir Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur (15 April 2011)

Rajasthan started off slowly and when Paunikar was out they had reached 29/1 after 5 overs with COW of 43%. Dravid and Menaria upped the tempo a bit while laying a platform for late hitting. When Taylor and Watson came together Rajasthan were 79/3 after 12 overs with 44% COW. They both let lose as 80 runs came off last 8 overs and Rajasthan ended with 159/4 and COW of 53%. When Bisla fell early, Kolkata’s COW dropped to 43% as they were 12/1 after 2 overs. But skipper Gambhir in company of Kallis took apart the RR bowling clinically as they scored blistering fifties to make a mockery of the target as Kolkata romped home by 9 wickets in 18.3 overs.
