"People keep talking that Kolkata turns and spins, but we've been getting 170 odd runs. And they just lost by 13 runs. It was a good batting track at the Eden, and when you have quality in the line-up it doesn't matter" Gambhir stated.

He said the Knights were at one stage thinking of finishing at 160, and getting 170 was a bonus.

Refering to the last over bowled by veteran Daredevils bowler Zaheer khan, which yielded 18 runs, Gambhir said "That over of Zaheer and the way Johan batted was brilliant. 155 would have been par with Sunil and Hoggy with us."

Asked whether his side would now be all keyed up as it had the winning momentum, Gambhir quoted "Don't believe in momentum, it's a new game day after tomorrow and we'll start even again.

"We have to go out and play to our potential and we have everything to lose against Kings XI, who have nothing to lose, Kings XI Punjab make up the rear of the league table with four points from ten games, he added.
