Indore – Kolkata Knight Riders handed a crushing defeat to Kings XI Punjab on first of the Saturday doubleheader, securing a dominant victory by 31 runs.

Put in to bat, KKR came out all guns blazing with Narine punishing each bowler of the home side. His onslaught – 75 runs off 36 balls – paved the way for a formidable total. Dinesh Karthik played a captain’s knock towards the end of the innings to help KKR post fourth-highest total of IPL. Tye was the pick of the KXIP bowlers, returning with a 4-fer.
