All to play for Kings XI Punjab

Kings XI Punjab visit M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru for tonight's clash against Royal Challengers Bangalore, which will also be their 10th match of 2017 Indian Premier League.

Gayle's poor run of form continued as he was dismissed off the first ball of the innings itself to Umesh Yadav.

Mandeep looked to take on Chris Woakes, opening the bowling in place of injured Nathan Coulter-Nile, hitting the England pacer for a four and a six off back-to-back deliveries.


"We got 158 runs on the board and it was on us to take advantage of it, but they put us out of the contest by getting 105 runs in six or seven overs", he said.

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) couldn't have picked a better time to come to Bangalore for their away fixture against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Giving the West Indies opener company was Chris Lynn, who smashed his second fifty of the season.

Narine was adjudged the Man-of-the-match for his herculean innings and he overshadowed his hard-hitting partner apart from RCB's Travis Head and Mandeep Singh. He was eventually dismissed by Sunil Narine when he let one fly towards deep backward square leg, only to be caught by Umesh Yadav. Narine's KKR teammate Yusuf Pathan is the only other batsman in IPL to have a 15-ball 50.


KKR move back into second spot as they chase a coveted spot in the first Qualifier which offers the quickest route to the final for the victor of the clash between first and second.

Head's 75 not out came off 47 balls, with him three fours and five sixes during the knock. The RCB bowlers didn't have a clue while both the KKR openers dealt in fours and sixes.

While Lynn made a comeback after a career threatening shoulder injury, KKR is hoping to get back the services of Robin Uthappa in the next match. He hit the RCB bowlers all over the park to register the joint fastest half century in IPL - 50 from 15 balls, finishing at 54 from 17. Sunil Narine and Chris Lynn eclipsed the 100/2 by Chennai Super Kings against Kings XI Punjab in the 2014 edition.


The Kohli-led RCB just has just five points from 12 matches this IPL season and are already out of contention for the play-off berth this year.
