Kolkata Knight Riders claimed their fifth win of the Indian Premier League season with a comprehensive 47-run defeat of Royal Challengers Bangalore on Saturday.
KKR's heavy-hitting top three all struck form as they posted 190 for four, while Chris Gayle was unable to find enough support to mount a serious challenge in response.
Gautam Gambhir top-scored with 93 after winning the toss, facing 51 deliveries and scoring nine fours and five sixes.
He shared an opening stand of 95 with Brendon McCullum, who made 43, and was then supported by Jacques Kallis, who cleared the ropes three times in his 41.
Vinay Kumar returned two for 31 as he escaped much of the worst punishment.
RCB's response was built entirely around Gayle, who started relatively slowly but soon started flaying the bowlers around the ground.
He finished with 86 from 58 deliveries, with seven fours and six maximums but nobody else reached 20 as the required rate spiralled out of control.
Tillakaratne Dilshan (one) and AB de Villiers (nought) were notable failures, while Virat Kohli mustered only 19.
Kallis took two for 31 and Yusuf Pathan conceded just 19 from his four-over spell.
Earlier, Azhar Mahmood's three-wicket haul and Mandeep Singh's half-century helped the Kings XI Punjab to a victory by seven runs against Chennai Super Kings.
Having set Chennai a victory target of just 157 after a late batting collapse, Punjab secured victory by a narrow margin as they restricted the hosts to 149 for eight from their 20 overs.
Mahmood's removal of both Chennai openers was the cornerstone of the victory, the veteran all-rounder accounting for Faf du Plessis (29) and Subramaniam Badrinath (25) after the pair had earlier raced away to a 49-run partnership inside six overs.
Dwayne Bravo's 30 was the only other score of note for Chennai, for whom defeat was sealed just five deliveries after Mahmood (three for 25) had claimed his final victim with the removal of Albie Morkel for eight.
Earlier, opener Singh's 56 set Punjab on their way. He was supported by Shaun Marsh's 32 and scores in the high teens by Mahmood and David Miller, but no other player from the Punjab ranks reached double figures.
