Kolkata: Gautam Gambhir was a happy skipper on Sunday after Kolkata Kolkata Knight Riders registered a comprehensive 48-run victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Eden Gardens.

Gambhir heaped praise on Eoin Morgan and Jacques Kallis for their exploits in the match that helped KKR get back to the winning ways.

"It was a very good wicket to bat on. Morgan and Kallis were fantastic. We were aiming at 160-odd but to get 180 was very good. Morgan has been an incredible batsman. We have to give him time in the middle. Hopefully he can continue like this through the tournament," Gambhir said.
