Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) notched up an important victory against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) to go 4th on the Indian Premier League table. KXIP won the toss and chose to field first on a fresh Sharjah pitch.
KXIP got off to a great start as they reduced KKR to 10/3 in 2 overs. It took some counter-attacking by Shubman Gill and Eoin Morgan to bring the innings back on track. After the duo lost their wickets, Lockie Ferguson came up with some good hitting to set KXIP a target of 150.
In the chase, KXIP got off to a steady start before skipper KL Rahul was trapped in front by a Varun Chakravarthy delivery. His fellow opener Mandeep Singh was then joined by Chris Gayle who started cutting loose early on. Despite the Jamaican getting out after a half-century, fellow half-centurion Mandeep saw the chase through.
