Andre Russell steals the game as KKR make it two in 2

Cricket Highlights - Andre Russell steals the game as KKR make it two in 2


Watch the highlights of KKR VS KXIP IPL 2019 - VIVO IPL 2019 : KKR vs KXIP, Kolkata Knight Riders beat Kings XI Punjab by 28 runs.

Sunil Narine provided the fast start, Nitish Rana Punishes KKR with Valiant 63 runs off 34 balls and Robin Uthappa smashing 67 runs off 50 balls, both bastmen built an outstanding platform.

And West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell - who else! - gave the Kolkata Knight Riders innings a furious finish, whomping five glorious sixes and three terrific fours in a 48 off 17 deliveries.

A target of 219 always seemed too much for Kings XI Punjab, even on this super-flat Eden Gardens surface. The visitors made a valiant charge in their own innings, but did not have the firepower that Knight Riders possessed, and ultimately went down by 28 runs.

Kings XI, Mayank Agarwal hit 58 runs off 34 balls, and David Miller made 59 runs off 40 balls, but even with a strong supporting hand from Mandeep Singh, who hit 33 runs off 15 balls, they never looked like getting close.
