With a commanding win over Delhi in the afternoon game on Saturday, Kolkata Knight Riders are at the fourth position with six wins in 11 matches.

Kings XI Punjab made an incredible comeback at the death, taking five wickets in the final two overs to beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 12 runs in an Indian Premier League match on Saturday. Chasing a modest 127-run target, SRH batsmen committed ‘harakiri’ after a solid 56-run opening stand between skipper David Warner – 35 and Jonny Bairstow – 19 to be all out for 114 in 19.5 overs. The win, their fourth on the trot, kept KXIP in the fray for playoffs as they jumped to fifth spot in the eight-team standings with 10 points from 11 games. The defeat made life difficult for SRH even though they are mathematically still in with a chance of making the play-offs, but for that to happen they will need to win their remaining three games with good net run rates. SRH made a brisk start to their chase with skipper Warner and Bairstow adding 56 runs for the opening stand in 6.2 overs before KXIP bowlers inflicted three quick blows to make a return to the contest. Both Warner and Bairstow soon perished in quick succession before Abdul Samad too failed to rise to the occasion.
