Kolkata fans will have a lot to cheer tonight, with KKR winning both their home games before they start playing their away fixtures. That brings us to the end of over coverage tonight. Do join us for the big game tomorrow as the Indian captain takes on the his limited-overs deputy at Bengaluru. Time for us to say goodbye.

Russell: Keep getting cars and these awards. I think I will need a bigger garage. Hope the momentum stays with us. He (Gayle) is like a brother to me, a bigger legend. The plan was to bowl tight to him, restrict him as much as possible. Today, I did hit some big ones, but he is the bigger hitter. He is a new guy, forgot his name. Thanks to that guy who was outside the ring. Thank you. When I got bowled, I thoguht I'd missed out but I saw the guys in the dug out signalling no-ball and I was like, please God, let it be a front foot no-ball, but it was actually the guy outside the circle. You have to clear your head. When I run out to bat, that little run I do to get the adernaline flowing and get loose. I get into the mood and with the ball I have a go at it.

23:52 (IST)

Dinesh Karthik, KKR captain: It's a good start in the tournament. The way Nitish played was beautiful. Credit to Robin for playing it through and we got a good start from Narine and Lynn at the top. Narine was injured in the last game and could not open. Lots of good players. Important to remain calm. Playing away always is a challenge and we will try and do as well as we can.

Andre Russell is the Player of the Match

This makes Karthik a happy captain!

23:44 (IST)

Andre Russell’s all-round skills stood out again as Kolkata Knight Riders completed a comprehensive victory over Kings XI Punjab. Half centuries by Mayank Agarwal and David Miller could not take the visiting side near the finish line.

But that was always a tough task after Kings XI Punjab goofed up on the field at a most opportune moment – it had just three fielders inside the circle when Mohammed Shami yorked Russell when the West Indies powerhouse had made only 3 runs and finished with 48.

The Kolkata Knight Riders bowlers found the better lengths than the visiting bowlers for whom the two spinners R Ashwin and Varun Chakravarthy were a disappointment tonight. Piyush Chawla played a quiet but effective role for Kolkata Knight Riders that had other stars on Wednesday with Nitish Rana and Robin Uthappa scoring half-centuries.

RUSSELL- the BIG difference in tonight's game!

R Ashwin, KXIP captain: We weren't really focussed on the small things and they do cost you big in this format. I think it was my fault, I'll take the blame. I should have looked at it. At that stage, with the slog on, you hope the fielders are switched on but obviously he was a debutant (Chakravarthy and Vijljoen made their debuts today). Mayank batted well. I thought 200 was par and that's where the small mistakes cost us. We learnt somethings from KKR handling the small boundary at one side. We played four games last year and won all of them, it suits our batsmen. I think our batting performance was pretty good.

23:40 (IST)

KKR have now won 16 matches against KXIP in IPL - the second most by any team against an opposition in IPL. The record is with MI who has won 18 matches against KKR in IPL.

KKR started off the campaign by beating Sunrisers Hyderabad by six wickets. Chasing a difficult target of 182 runs, KKR were 118/4 in the 16th over and required a massive effort from someone in the ranks to take the team home. Andre Russell took the task in hand and blasted a 19-ball 49, which included 4 fours and 4 sixes, to get KKR past the target. He was ably supported by Nitish Rana, who hit 68 off 47 balls and Shubman Gill, who played a 10-ball 18 cameo.

Kings XI Punjab beat Rajasthan Royals by 14 runs in their opening clashing of the season. It was a controversial match after Punjab captain R Ashwin mankaded Jos Buttler. After Buttler's wicket, Rajasthan could not find ground and kept on losing wickets at regular interval to lose the match.
