Hash Hundred not enough for Kings XI

Hash Hundred not enough for Kings XI

Mohali, May 7 Their IPL play-off hopes severely dented, Kings XI Punjab captain Glenn Maxwell termed the six- wicket defeat against Gujarat Lions today as "pretty devastating".

KKR lost by 14 runs but have already made the playoffs.

Tewatia then dismissed Robin Uthappa for 0 and these two blows proved to be the turning point as KXIP bowlers came back strongly into the match. Powered by Sunil Narine's half-century - the joint-fastest half-century in the IPL - and his rollicking partnership with Chris Lynn, KKR chased down the target of 159 quite comfortably in 15.1 overs. Kolkata derive all their batting strength from the top order with Gambhir (425 runs), Robin Uthappa (384 runs) - expected to return tonight after recovering from a hamstring niggle - and Manish Pandey (345 runs) leading the way, not to forget Narine.

Eric Trump denies alleged statements on Russian funding for golf courses
Both Donald and Eric Trump Monday morning bright and early were tweeting about "fake news". You know, no one's funding any kind of golf construction.

KKR will, however, need to watch out in so far as they have been cashing in on the hit-and-miss experiment of using Narine at the top. Also, after winning the match by Gujarat the chances of Royal Challengers Bangalore to stay in this season has also came to an end. Umesh Yadav, Chris Woakes and Narine will be the main bowlers on whom KKR will mainly bank upon with Ankit Rajpoot and Piyush Chawla also having the ability to support them. This is the most important match for KXIP as losing this match will kick-out their Playoff chance. King XI Punjab have just managed five wins from 11 matches and are placed at the fifth spot with just 10 points.

Chasing 190 to win, the Lions got off to a flyer courtesy of Smith as he and Ishan Kishan put together a 91-run partnership.

Dwayne Smith struck a whirlwind 74 as Gujarat Lions defeated Kings XI Punjab by six wickets in an Indian Premier League game, here on Sunday.

Punjab now have 12 points from the same number of matches and play Mumbai Indians and Rising Pune Supergiant away.

Knight Riders are now second with 16 points and have one more game against Mumbai Indians. What makes things even more hard for KXIP is that their remaining two matches after this one are against Mumbai Indians and Rising Pune Supergiant, both teams that look in ominous form and are among the top three in the League at the moment.

Wriddhiman Saha (38) and skipper Glenn Maxwell (44) gave the innings some much needed impetus before both fell prey to Kuldeep Yadav (2/34).
