Indian Premier League (IPL) side Kolkata Knight Riders on Wednesday equalled the record of 12 consecutive wins by any Indian side in the shortest format of cricket. Kolkata achieved the feat with their narrow three-wicket win over the Perth Scorchers in the ongoing Champions League T20 (CLT20) 2014 tournament at Hyderabad.

Surya Kumar Yadav starred with his innings of 43 not out off just 19 balls as KKR romped home with a win, but not before losing the plot to the Australian side that looked feeble on important junctions in the game.

Electing to bat first, Perth Scorchers reached a competitive 151 for seven in their allotted 20 overs against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the important Champions League (CLT20) 2014 Group A game in Hyderabad.

They were threatened to make more as the openers Craig Simmons and Adam Voges played well up front and gave the team a solid start. But KKR spinners, specially Kuldeep Yadav and Sunil Narine brought his team back. Kuldeep took three wickets and Narine took four.
