Into the skies. and over long-on! There's the winning runs! Pooran does it and does so in style! Pooran dances down the track and lofts it over long-on for a maximum. Punjab wins the nailbiter in the very last ball. It was a comfortable victory for the Kings XI even though they pushed it to the very end. Kings XI win by 8 wickets. Skipper KL Rahul would be relieved and top-scored with 61 , well accompanied by Agarwal with 45 and Gayle with 53. It was a pleasure to watch Gayle turn the clock back to his younger days and put on an explosive show with the bat. For RCB, Chahal picked up one wicket but their bowling attack did not do well enough to restrict them within the total. KL Rahul has been adjudged as the man of the match for his excellent performance with the bat. Join us for the next match played between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders. Live from Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. Until then, adios!.
19.6 - Y Chahal to N Pooran
Leg spinner full toss, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs.
A bit of an anti-climax. A wicket just before the home run. Run Out!! Goodness, gracious! What happened there? Hare-brained running has cost Punjab a wicket here, that too of experienced Gayle. He fails to make it in time for the quick single and he's a goner. Punjab need 1 form 1 ball. Can they win it or will this lead to a superover?.
