The wait is over last night the final match played in Bangalore between Shahrukh Khan’s KKr and Priety Zinta’s team Kings XI Punjab.
Kings XI were powered to a strong total of 199/4 by Saha’s maiden and brilliant century after they suffered an early setback. Manish Pandey’s innings made sure Wriddhiman Saha’s valiant knock of 115 not out went in vain as Kolkata Knight Riders beat Kings XI Punjab by three wickets to clinch their second Indian Premier League (IPL) title at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium here Sunday.
Pathan got out after hitting four sixes in his 22-ball 36 but the 24-year-old Pandey kept going despite running out of partners.
Brief scores: Kings XI Punjab 199/4 in 20 overs (Wriddhiman Saha 115 not out, Manan Vohra 67, Virender Sehwag 7; Piyush Chawla 2/44, Umesh Yadav 1/39, Sunil Narine 1/46) lost to Kolkata Knight Riders 200/7 in 19.3 overs (Manish Pandey 94, Yusuf Pathan 36, Gautam Gambhir 23; Karanveer Singh 4/54, Mitchell Johnson 2/41).
