The man of the match is Axar Patel for his magnificent bowling, taking 4 wickets for 21 runs.

At the halfway stage in this game, it looked as if Gujarat would hunt this target down. But it wasn't to be as the change in captaincy did work for Punjab this evening. Axar Patel picked up 4 wickets with a hat-trick, while Mohit Sharma picked up three wickets, including the wicket of McCullum. It was a complete performance by the Kings XI in the field, and they have earned this victory!

Perhaps this wicket would make this a rapid fire T20 match instead of a timeless Test that it has become now. Or does Vijay have plans for Kaushik as well?

...
7 runs from that over. Good one by Sandeep.

That would probably be the last nail in the coffin for Gujarat unless Faulkner does something extraordinary. It's time for the strategic timeout as well!
...
14.5 Marcus Stoinis to Kishan, KISHAN RUT OUT. Down the ground and smashed towards the covers, they try to take on a quick single but taking on Glenn Maxwell is hardly ever a good choice and he runs him out at the non-striker's end. Kishan gone.
