After the departure of KL Rahul (28), who is currently the Orange Cap holder, Chris Gayle (51 off 29 balls) and Mandeep Singh (66 off 56) starred with the bat as Kings XI Punjab thumped Kolkata Knight Riders by eight wickets. This was KXIP’s fifth consecutive win in IPL 2020.

Earlier, KKR were asked to bat and finished with 149/9 on the board, courtesy Shubman Gill’s 45-ball 57 and skipper Eoin Morgan’s 25-ball 40. Barring Shubman and Morgan, the remaining batting line-up failed to make any sort of impact.

Mohammed Shami picked up three wickets while Chris Jordan and Ravi Bishnoi were economical and finished with two wickets apiece.
