In pic: Kings XI Punjab bowler Piyush Chawla (L) and teammate Mandeep Singh (R) celebrate after taking the wicket of Kolkata Knight Riders batsman Yusuf Pathan (unseen) during the IPL Twenty20 cricket match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab at The Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

Praveen Kumar bowled the penultimate over and a good one to restrict the hosts to just four runs off it. Nine required of the final six deliveries now and Harmeet Singh has the ball.

Bowled him! Can you believe it? Harmeet has picked up a crucial wicket here. ten Doeschate gone, clean bowled for 11. This can be a big psychological blow for the hosts.

It's all over for KKR. After a very good 17th and 18th over, they rekindled the hopes of another thrilling victory here. With 13 required off last 12 balls, it looked very much possible till they lost a set batsmen in ten Doeschate in the final over. Bhatia, the new man on strike gave his best but could not win it for the hosts. Das is a disappointed man, he can't believe what just happened. Neither can we, definitely a heartbreak moment for the host team. In the end, Punjab beat KKR by 2 runs margin.
