Chris Lynn came in and started batting fiercely. ALSO READ: Sehwag saved the IPL by picking me - Gayle Post a 95-minute rain-break, the match was reduced to 13 overs and the winning target was revised to 125 runs under D/L Method.

Punjab is the most destructive side in the powerplay overs this season, scoring 11 runs per over during the first 6 overs.

Match Status: Second innings in Play. When he played Shivam Mavi and Andre Russell, he covered the line well and was on top of the ball to play sublime drives. "That's a catch, when you look back, you don't feel bad about getting out". In the IPL history, both the teams have faced each other as many as 22 times.

WICKET! Captain Ravichandran Ashwin gets his first wicket as he removes Robin Uthappa for 34 runs. He is one of the best player in T20 cricket. Mayank Agarwal (2*) then joined hands with Gayle to complete the formalities with 11 balls to spare. Sunil Narine and R Ashwin, the frontline spinners will be on limelight but equally important have been the likes of Kuldeep Yadav, Chawla and the Afghani sensation Mujeeb Ur Rehman. "We do have world-class batsmen at the top of the order but we also have world-class middle-order batters as well". The approach is going to be aggressive and to take the bowlers down within my limitations with whatever I am gifted with.

Gayle was at his best on Thursday when he smashed this season's first century - a 63-ball 104 not out - at the expense of one of the best bowling outfits, Sunrisers Hyderabad. Rajpoot returns and Uthappa welcomes him with a boundary and Chris Lynn ends the over with a six. Despite losing Narine early, Kolkata still managed to score 50 runs in the Power Play.


For Kings XI Punjab, Barinder Sran and Andrew Tye claimed two wickets apiece. With Lynn smoking everyone around the park, it became hard for Uthappa to stand toe-to-toe with his partner.

Gayle also hit five fours in his electrifying display of power hitting.

Nitish Rana (3) was run out after the in-form southpaw fell prey to a poor mix-up with Lynn while trying to take a single.

Dinesh Karthik was the next batsman to produce some runs, as his knock of 43 led the hosts to a respectable total. Despite tiring up, Lynn clattered Andrew Tye (2 for 30) for a couple of boundaries but eventually fell to his fellow countryman.

Karthik holed out to Tye at deep backward square off Sran with U-19 World Cup victor Shubman Gill (14 not out) staying on till the end.
