Kolkata Knight Riders v Kings XI Punjab at Durban

KKR v KXP, Match 6: Kolkata Knight Riders beat Kings XI Punjab by 11 runs

Chris Gayle played a belligerent innings as the Kolkata Knight Riders secured an 11-run win on the Duckworth/Lewis method over Kings XI Punjab in a rain-affected Indian Premier League match at Kingsmead.
Gayle, dropped on two and again on 32, briefly dispersed gloomy weather conditions with an unbeaten 44 off only 26 deliveries before rain had the final say. The Kings XI had made 158 for six and Kolkata had reached 79 for one in 9.2 overs when their innings ended prematurely.
Gayle was dropped on two by Tarun Goel off Yusuf Abdulla in only the second over and again by wicketkeeper Kumar Sangakkara off Piyush Chawla when on 32. By the time the rain came down, Gayle had smashed four sixes and two boundaries while putting on 57 for the opening wicket with skipper Brendon McCullum (21).
KKR v KXP, Match 6: Kolkata Knight Riders 79-1 (9.2 ov) beat Kings XI Punjab 158-6 (20.0 ov) by 11 runs (D/L)
