IPL 2014 Final: Manish Pandey and Yusuf Pathan solid for Kolkata Knight Riders in chase of 200 against Kings XI Punjab

Jun 1, 2014

In the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 final played between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), Manish Pandey and Yusuf Pathan were solid for KKR. Akshar Patel, bowling the 10th over, kept things very tight. He conceded a single and followed it up with two dot balls, before conceding another single. Yusuf was unable to get the ball off the square off the last two balls either.

Karanveer Singh continued for KXIP. Pandey took a single off the first ball, and Yusuf then hit the next two deliveries over long off for sixes. The signs were looking ominous for KXIP, as Yusuf and Pandey looked very good for KKR.

Earlier, Manish Pandey and Yusuf Pathan were helping Kolkata Knight Riders recover after the loss of Gautam Gambhir in the IPL 2014 Final against Kings XI Punjab. Kolkata were chasing 200 to win and are 73 for two in eight overs.

Gautam Gambhir was out off the first ball of the seventh over as he charged to Karanveer Singh and holed out to the deep. However, Pandey smoked a six off the next ball when he lofted it over cover for a six. Lakshmipathy Balaji then came to bowl the eighth over and Pandey lofted him for a four through the mid-wicket region.

Earlier, Kolkata won the toss and chose to bowl first on what looks like a very good batting track at Bangalore. Kolkata played an unchanged side for this contest. Punjab made one change as Lakshmipathy Balaji came in place of Sandeep Sharma. Wriddhiman Saha’s brilliant ton took Punjab to 199 for four.
