Presentation Ceremony

Azhar Mahmood is the Man of the Match for his all-round show, here is what he says: "We got a good start and bowled well as a group. We talked about the bowling before the tournament. Myself and Andre guided the other younger bowlers. Martin and Lou were terrific at the top and gave us a very good start."

Gareth Hopkins, the winning Auckland Captain says: "There is a lot of confidence. Once we got the start we kept going with the chase. We backed the bowlers and they did it. Lou gave us a good start and Mahmood took upon the responsiblilty to finish it off."

Gautam Gambhir, the losing KKR Captain says: "This is what the format is all about. I think Azhar's first over changed the momentum entirely in their favour. We have to play better and smart cricket."
Azhar Mahmood brings up his fifty with that shot and also finishes the match in style! Auckland Aces defeat Kolkata Knight Riders by 7 wickets with 14 balls to spare.
