And Vikas Kumar has sealed the match in style for Kings XI! This has been a masterclass in how to chase the total down. Kings XI have hammered 81 runs from the last 4 overs to chase the total down. Phew! What a turnaround!!!!!

Vikas Kumar's unbeaten 72 from 36 balls has helped Kings XI win the match by 9 wickets. But at one stage Kings XI were looking dead and buried in the chase. The opening pair of Kumar and Jaswinder Singh started slowly chasing a huge total of 131. When Singh was dismissed on the sixth over Kings XI were 52/1. Chasing down 131 was looking nearly impossible at that stage. But with Singh's wicket, in walked Simranjit Singh. And Simranjit Singh made an instant impact in the chase and he started hitting the ball from the word go. His cameo of 33 from 10 balls was pivotal in turning things around for Kings XI. Seeing  Simranjit's bravado, Vikas started swinging his heavy bat too and in a blink of an eye the game turned in Kings XI's favor. The Baracca Prato bowlers melted under the pressure as Simranjit and Vikas made a mockery of the bowling in the second half of the innings. The runs came thick and fast and Vikas hit two fours and three sixes on the first five deliveries of the last over to seal the match for his side. 

Earlier in the day Kings XI had won the toss and opted to field. But Kings XI skipper Jaipal Singh would have hoped for a better show from his bowlers. But the star of the first half of the match was the captain of Baracca Prato Dastageer Ghulam. The skipper led from the front and opened the batting for his side and stayed in the middle right through the course of the inning. During his stay, he faced 31 balls and scored 69 runs. Ghulam smashed five fours and six sixes on his way to the half-century. He lost partners early on but he got good support from Abid Hussain who made 31 from just 14 balls. Bowling figures don't make for good reading. Vikas Kumar was the pick of the bowlers as he bowled a fine spell of 2/14. Noman Ali and Jaipal Singh were the two other bowlers who picked up a wicket each. All other bowlers were punished by Ghulam.
