Kolkata Knight Riders were going great guns till Rahul Tripathi departed, a scalp against the run of play which led to Punjab tightening the screws and allowing their opponents merely 50 in the last six overs. The death-over merchants resorted to blockhole yorkers, giving away a paltry 14 runs in the final two overs. Punjab have been successful in jamming the breaks on but Kolkata still have a competitive total on the board, which makes up for an exciting chase at the Dubai International Stadium.
