A fantastically disciplined bowling performance from KXIP helped them to successfully defend a total of 167 at the traditionally batting friendly ground of Mohali this evening. Another fantastic knock by Chris Lynn (84 from 52) was not enough to propel KKR to their target, as KXIP’s bowling attack were remarkably consistent with their line and variations in both spin and seam. Mohit Sharma (2/24 from 3 overs) and Rahul Tewatia (2/18 from 4 overs) were the pick of the bowlers, restricting KKR throughout the run-chase, leaving the visitors 14 runs short of victory after 20 overs.
