IPL 2020 Highlights, KXIP vs KKR Match, Full Cricket Score: Kolkata stage turnaround, beat Punjab by 2 runs

19:35 (IST)

Phew, what a match. Punjab have themselves to blame as they lose a game which was under their grip for 18 overs of the chase. Rahul and Mayank put on a big partnership and after Agarwal's departure, it just went downhill for Punjab. You feel for them but they know it's their fault. 

KKR have pulled off another come-from-behind win in the tournament. These wins work wonders for the team. They were without services of Russell's bowling. Just tells you how important Narine is for KKR and what a champion bowler really when it comes to T20s.

Not to forget, that this is a double-header Saturday and in Dubai RCB are taking on CSK.

Last over, Ball 6: Maxwell swings and connects, the ball went high up in the air and it seemed like it is a six but the ball had bounced milimetres before the ropes. It is a four and not a six, third umpire checks and KKR celebrate. They have beaten KXIP by smallest of margins from absolutely nowhere.

Prasidh back on and completes the spell. Narine bowled a superb 18th over and now Krishna has produced another good one. Two wickets and just six runs. The match is hanging in balance. Kings XI Punjab need 14 runs in 6 balls. Narine to bowl the last over.

Highlights

IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Kings XI Punjab vs Kolkata Knight Riders latest updates: Narine back on and he removes Pooran, who was looking to hit every ball out of the park. He has perished in the process. Prabhsimran Singh, right handed bat, comes to the crease and he plays two dots before taking single off the last ball. Will keep the strike. Just 2 off the over. 20 needed off 12 balls. KKR can still do this but you got to say, Punjab in driver's seat.

Preview: Kings XI Punjab take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the 24th match of the Indian Premier League in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.

Things have got desperate for KXIP, five losses from six matches have put them in huge trouble. They lie at the bottom of the table with just two points. Inconsistencies in all the departments have hurt them badly. Their middle-order hasn't fired in unison and there has been a lot of dependence on openers KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal.

Apart from Nicholas Pooran, none of the middle-order batsmen clicked in the chase of 200 against SRH after the openers failed. The death bowling finally came good against SRH, however, the powerplay and middle overs bowling wasn't incisive enough and leaked too many runs.

There have also been questions about Rahul's approach in the powerplay but the KXIP captain has brushed those aside.

"I think strike rate is very, very overrated. For me, it is only about how I can win games for my team and on a certain day if 120 can win a game for my team then I will do that. This is how I bat and I like to take responsibility," Rahul said post the SRH match.

There are chances we might finally see Chris Gayle in action against SRH if he's fully recovered from food poisoning.

KXIP need to step up big time in all the departments in order to script a revival.

KKR, on the other hand, go into the match on the back of a win against CSK. They have three wins and two losses from five matches and would be looking to achieve consistency. The move to promote Rahul Tripathi to open worked wonders as he scored a match-winning 51-ball 81 against CSK. However, the rest of the batting needs to fire consistently. None of the batsmen crossed 20 against Chennai. Captain Dinesh Karthik's form is a concern as well. He impressed with his captaincy against CSK and would be desperately looking to make amends with the bat against KXIP.

The bowlers did well to defend 168 against CSK. Youngsters like Shivam Mavi, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, and Varun Chakravarthy took up the responsibility and delivered.  KKR would expect this on a consistent basis from their young guns.

Given the struggles of KXIP, KKR start favourites.
