In chase of a formidable target of 213, Kings XI Punjab‘s Chris Gayle did start off with a bang crashing Khaleel Ahmed for a four behind square, but the left-arm quick had the last laugh when he had Gayle mistime one outside off and the skier was taken with a juggling act by Manish Pandey.

However, KXIP rode on KL Rahul‘s 26 off 24 balls and Mayank Agarwal‘s 11 off nine balls as they posted 44/1 runs in the powerplay overs. Rahul hit a six off Khaleel and a four off Sandeep Sharma. Mayanak helped himself to one four off Bhuvneshwar.
