Opting to bat first, Kings XI Punjab batsmen had a bad start, losing wickets at regular intervals, before finishing their innings to 149 for six by the Kolkata Knight Riders in their Indian Premier League (IPL) clash on April 26.

Decent contributions from most of its batsmen from Punjab side, helped Punjab to reach this fighting total even as the home side showed a disciplined line of bowling. KKR utilised six bowlers within the first 10 overs looking to unsettle the visitor’s batting.

After three successive losses, the defending champion KKR returned to winning form defeating Kings XI Punjab by six wickets in a Pepsi IPL VI match here on Friday. Kallis hit six boundaries in his 33-ball 37, secured two wickets and awarded man of the match.
