Speaking after the match, GT captain Gill said, "Would have liked to finish it a bit early, but good to get those two points. (Captaincy) It's been very exciting for me to be able to take up this role. Except for the over-rate, everything has been good."

"When I am out there batting, I just want to play as a batter, I don't want to think too much about the captaincy. He (Livingstone) was trying to rush me there but the ball that I got out, I would have made that decision even if I was batting as a batsman or even without that little bit that we had (small altercation)," he added.

Meanwhile, Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by one run, at the Eden Gardens. Chasing 223, RCB were bowled out for 221 in 20 overs, despite half-centuries from Will Jacks (55) and Rajat Patidar (52). For KKR's bowling department, Andre Russell took three wickets.

Initially, a half-century from Shreyas Iyer (50) saw KKR post 222/6 in 20 overs. Meanwhile, Cameron Green and Yash Dayal took two wickets each for RCB.
