IPL 2020 – Superb Bowlers, Mandeep Singh take KXIP into top four by beating KKR

KXIP continued their winning streak with yet another victory against KKR in Sharjah on Monday. Chasing 150 in 20 overs, KXIP went over the line by 8 wickets in 19th over.

Universe Boss – Chris Gayle showed his class once again and hammered the KKR bowlers all around the park to notch up another half-century during the course in just 25 balls. He also completed 1000 IPL runs for KXIP. Mandeep Singh on the other end too went past the 50-run mark and remained unbeaten at 66 off just 56 deliveries.

Earlier, after being put into the bat KKR had a disappointing start to the proceedings as they lost Nitish Rana for a golden duck. KKR were then reduced to 10/3 by Mohammad Shami’s double wicket over. KKR Captain Eoin Morgan joined hands with Shubman Gill and stitched a stand of 81 runs before Morgan departed.

Shubman Gill though went on to score a fifty while Morgan struck 40. KKR kept losing wickets and it was a late surge from Lockie Ferguson who scored an unbeaten 24 off 13 that they managed to put 149/9 on the board which was not sufficient to stop KXIP from victory.

Mohammed Shami scalped a three-for while Chris Jordan and Ravi Bishnoi picked up a couple of wickets each. With this win KXIP move to fourth spot in the points table.
