Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) made their record for the second time in a row by making a two-run win, beating Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.
With KKR electing to bat, they lost Rahul Tripathi in the third over. On the other hand, KXIP picked their second wicket in the next over following a mix-up between Nitish Rana and Shubman Gill.

Further, KKR added 18 runs in their quota of 20 overs. Two over later, KL Rahul hit two successive fours, and Mayank marked up their fifties as KXIP continued their chase in full spirit.
KKR managed to break the Mayank-Rahul partnership in the 15th over as he dismissed Mayank for 59.
Finally, KXIP needed 14 off the last over and Narine was handed over the responsibility to bowl. While KXIP could only score 2 off the first two balls, Glenn Maxwell hit a four off the third to bring down the target to 8 from 3 balls.
