Put into bat first, Punjabi Legends were provided a solid foundation by in-form Luke Ronchi, who struck his third consecutive half-century. Ronchi top-scored with 70 off just 34 balls, while Malik added 26 off 14 balls.
In reply, after the loss of Chadwick Walton on the very first ball of the innings, the Irishmnn Paul Stirling and the Ireland-born English skipper Eoin Morgan combined for a 113-run second wicket partnership to cruise home with 12 balls to spare. Morgan missed out on finishing the innings after blazing 63 off 21 balls. Stirling remained not out on 52 off 23 balls.
The Kerala Kings skipper Eoin Morgan was adjudged man of the match for his breath-taking innings, while Luke Ronchi received the man of the series award.
