Gujarat Lions easily chased the tricky target of 158 set by Kolkata Knight Riders. The match saw what could easily become the 'catch of the tournament' by Raina and some superb batting performances from both the teams. Twitter was quick to respond with some funny tweets and here are the best ones!
After Praveen Kumar got Gambhir out with a superb in-swinger!

How bloody good was this by Raina!
And it has been said - Nobody should disagree!
Another angle of the same catch
Explains why they were in such a hurry to get out!
Some love for Raina's captaincy after Tambe's drop catch and bringing in spinners which allowed Yusuf Pathan and Shakib to settle...

A fan wonders on the sudden change in Yusuf Pathan...
Why is Yusuf Pathan behaving like a batsman ? #KKRvGL— Cricket Bakchod (@AllTimeBakchod) May 8, 2016
Bravo after Yusuf & Shakib carted him all over the park
Shakib is a champiyaan— Gaurav Kalra (@gauravkalra75) May 8, 2016
Yusuf is a champiyaaan#KKRvGL
This shows how impactful Pathan has been for KKR in the middle order
Yousuf Pathan has been involved in both the top-2 5th wicket stands of this IPL - with Shakib today and 96 runs with Russell v RCB. #KKRvGL— Bharath Seervi (@SeerviBharath) May 8, 2016
Although, this stat shows how Pathan's innings was a bit of an anti-climax
Yusuf Pathan today:— Alt Cricket (@AltCricket) May 8, 2016
36 off first 20 balls (SR: 180)
27 off next 21 balls (SR: 128)
Yup, no one predicted this!
Would you have imagined at 24-4 that Andre Russell wouldn't have a role to play with the bat !!— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) May 8, 2016
Yup, Shakib did this after getting Smith's wicket. But, Kohli would object it to being only known to Bengalis :P
Lady, we men tend to be forgetful about these kind of stuff!
It's mother's day and a mom came up with this witty observations!
After Chawla got Baz out on a googly!
Piyush Chawla made a whole career out of that wrong-one he clean bowled Sachin with. #KKRvGL— Gabbbar (@GabbbarSingh) May 8, 2016
