KKR vs KXIP : 15th Apr 2012
Some late onslaught by Piyush Chawla and Harmeet Singh lead Kings XI Punjab to provide respactibility to their scorecard. Until the break it seemed as if Sunil Narine has strangled and it is going to be a lop-sided match for KKR.
But, it was not and so, and KKR fans might be in a habit of expecting this sort of performance from their teams. Ganguly was made scapegoat and he was removed from the team. But lead by Dada Pune Warrioes is topping the table as of now.
It was a collective failure on part of KKR batsmen more so, there was nothing exceptional in the bowling of Kings XI Punjab, but they kept the scorebaord in check with their tight fielding and line-length bowling.
Rider’s Narine took 5 for 19 in his 4 overs and was the obvious man of the match choice but could not turn fortunes of his team.
