Commentary
  • 11.1

    SIX! Tom Curran to Chris Gayle. Half volley, off stump backing away driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled over long off for 6 runs. Not Gayle's best shot of the day but it doesn't matter. That completes a comfortable victory for Kings XI in what has been a truncated match. Chris Lynn played nicely earlier in the day for the Knight Riders but once the partnership between Rahul and Gayle was established there only looked like being one winner. Kings XI now sit atop the standings and look a formidable outfit in this year's competition.
