Done and dusted. Speared down the legside, and DK tickles it fine for the ball to hit the rope. KKR get home with two overs to spare. Shubman Gill played a very intelligent knock to glue things together, while others played cameos around him. In the end, it was pretty convincing, and that means Kings XI cannot qualify for the playoffs. Kolkata, on the other hand, have given themselves a sniff. Just four group games to go now in this IPL, and three teams can still finish in fourth spot. You won't want to miss this weekend's action.
