Cuttack, May 11:
Skipper Gautam Gambhir played a heroic knock of 63 not out as Kolkata Knight Riders beat the star-studded and powerful Kings XI Punjab by 9 wickets at Barabati stadium here this evening.
Chasing a modest total of 149 runs, KKR openers Gautam and Uthappa laid the foundation of what looked an easy looking victory for their team.
Shehwag was the only big performer for KXIP with 70 off 50 balls while Maxwell and Miller disappointed spectators by throwing away their wickets early in the innings.
