Match Ended   
162/5 (20.0/20)
164/6 (20.0/20)
Kolkata Knight Riders beat Kings XI Punjab by 2 runs
That is it from this game! The next match is between Chennai and Bangalore in Dubai and it's about to begin. Switch tabs and do join us there.
Dinesh Karthik is named the Man of the Match for his brilliant performance with the bat.
The Kolkata bowling looked flat today untill the 18th over. Everybody was being milked and scored easily off. However, Krishna was the one who bowled really well. Narine too was impressive. Varun was also good. Nagarkoti and Cummins though weren't upto the mark but Kolkata managed to win the important moments of the game and in the end came out on top.
Earlier in the innings chasing 165, Punjab openers got them off to a brilliant start! After Rahul was dropped early on, he made Kolkata pay. He along with Agarwal added a 100-plus stand. Agarwal was the aggressor and Rahul played along nicely. Their partnership took their side to the brink of victory before Agarwal departed. Pooran then came in and played a cameo which got his side closer. However, Narine's over, the 18th one, changed the game. They needed 22 in 3 but Narine bowled a brilliant 2 run over and also took a wicket. That changed the course of the game. Kolkata got a sniff and they pounced on it. They have pulled a rabbit out of the hat to gain another two points.
The Punjab dressing room is in shock! They actually can't believe they have lost this one. No way should have they gone down here. They should have won this game with an over to spare. How costly did the move to send Prabhsimran above Maxwell prove! His three dots to Narine just gave Kolkata a glimmer of hope which they capitalized on. Also, how good was Krishna in the penultimate over? Two wickets and just the 6 runs. Wow! One of those wickets were of Rahul who was bossing the game till then. 14 then from the last over of Narine on this wicket, was always going to be very tough and they fell short by just the two runs. This is a morale-deflating loss. Especially for a side which is not winning anything.

Sunil Narine To Glenn Maxwell
FOUR! Just short! Just short. Oh boy! Maxwell wants it to be checked but it is just short. Narine would have had his heart in his mouth for a second. What drama, what an anticlimax! It is a game of millimeters says Ian Bishop and that is oh so right. Coming to the ball now, what did Narine just bowl there. He fires it outside off. He invites Maxwell to hit towards the short side and Glenn does exactly that. He lofts it over covers. It bounces just inside the ropes and then goes over. A boundary signaled. They though go to check it upstairs as it is too close to call but replays show it lands just short. Heartbreak for Punjab. THEY LOSE BY 2 RUNS!

Sunil Narine To Mandeep Singh OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! The bigger side of the ground and Mandeep does not strike it cleanly and hence holes out. 7 needed from the last game. Kolkata can't lose unless an extra is bowled. It is slower through the air again and on middle. Narine gives no pace on the delivery. Singh goes for the slog sweep but only manages to hit it high up in the air. Green, the sub, settles under it and takes it brilliantly.
19.4
lb
Sunil Narine To Glenn Maxwell
NOT OUT! It is going down leg! More importantly for Kolkata, it is just a single and Maxwell is off strike. It is slower again and angling into the pads. Maxwell swings but once again misses to get hit on the pads. An appeal but turned down. The ball rolls towards short third man. A leg bye is taken. Karthik reviews but replays show that the on-field call is the right one.
Kolkata review! It is more in hope one feels. An LBW appeal has been turned down.

OUT! TIMBER! That is a huge, huge wicket. Game now in Kolkata's favor. Rahul can't believe what he has done. Krishna is over the moon. It is a full toss outside off.

Prasidh Krishna To Prabhsimran Singh OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! Kolkata back in this one! Prabhsimran walks back after an innings which could well cost his team the game. It is shorter and around off. He looks to pull but is done in by the pace.

OUT! TIMBER! Pooran is out of here but is it too late! They should have probably given Narine the over they gave to Nagarkoti. It is on middle, Pooran swings but misses. You miss I hit stuff from him. 21 needed in 16. A wicket more and the game might just get interesting.

Kolkata, on the other hand, need to break this stand and get into the middle order of Punjab as quickly as possible. The game looks in favour of Punjab at the moment but anything can happen in cricket. Varun Chakravarthy is into the attack.

Prasidh Krishna To Mayank Agarwal
FOUR! Just a mere chip and a welcome boundary! Agarwal might have decided to step on the gas now! Fuller and on middle, Agarwal lofts it over mid on and bags a boundary.

Prasidh Krishna To Mayank Agarwal
Agarwal makes room and this is shorter and outside off. It comes off slow from the surface and hence, it is slapped to mid off.

Pat Cummins To Mayank Agarwal
Cummins continues to keep it tight! On middle, this is played to the man at mid on for one. A sedate start by the Punjab openers so far.

Prasidh Krishna To KL Rahul
DROPPED AND FOUR! Also, Russell is down on the ground. This could well be a double blow for Kolkata. Excellent deception from Krishna. He bowls a slower one and it is fuller on off. Rahul is early into the loft. He hits it over mid off. Russell back tracks, gets two hands to it but spills it. It is rolling towards the boundary. Russell dives and tries to push it back in but is touching the ropes while doing so. He though is down on the ground outside the boundary line. How costly will this prove? Punjab's best player gets a life.

Prasidh Krishna To KL Rahul
A good delivery to begin! A full ball, almost a yorker on middle. Rahul gets his front leg out of the way and works it to mid-wicket.
Prasidh Krishna will bowl from the other end.
