Pin It



Kings XI Punjab beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by four wicket with one ball to spare in their Indian Premier League (IPL) encounter at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Chasing 159, Punjab had some very anxious moments before crossing the line as they lost Azhar Mahmood (2), skipper David Hussey (45) and Abhishek Nayar (2) through freak run outs in a space of eight balls towards the end to almost give away the win to rivals on the platter.

However, Piyush Chawla struck a six in the penultimate ball of the match to ensure that his side jump to fourth place in the table from a dejecting eighth spot.

Nitin Saini (50 off 36 balls), Mandep Singh (43 off 30) and skipper Hussey batted with sheer determination before the unnecessary run outs.

Saini shared a match-winning partnership of 73 runs for the third wicket with Hussey (45 off 29) to lay foundation for the win.

Earlier Chris Gayle was the top scorer with 71 while Virat Kohli struck 45. Veteran Pakistan all-rounder Azhar

Mahmood was the pick of the Kings XI bowlers bagging three for 20.
