Another dominant bowling performance followed by another effortless chase led Kolkata Knight Riders to their third win of the season, a six-wicket victory over Kings XI Punjab that took them top of the table. Knight Riders' bowling depth proved telling as their spinners ripped through Kings XI, who put in a sub-par batting performance, to keep them to 138 for 8. In the chase, Robin Uthappa's quickfire fifty effectively sealed the game. It was the 12th win by a chasing team in 13 games this season.

Put in to bat, Kings XI lost Manan Vohra early when he flicked Morne Morkel to deep square leg but M Vijay looked in rhythm, scything drives and cuts before failing to pick a googly from Piyush Chawla. A slow start was made slower when Wriddhiman Saha, promoted to No. 4, struggled in a 14-ball 8. Shaun Marsh, though, held one end up despite not being at his most fluent.
