IPL 2014 final: Manish Pandey leads Kolkata Knight Riders against Kings XI Punjab

Jun 1, 2014

 

Manish Pandey and Yusuf Pathan are helping Kolkata Knight Riders recover after the loss of Gautam Gambhir in the IPL 2014 Final against Kings XI Punjab. Kolkata are 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.
