The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are on a mission in this year's Indian Premier League (IPL) as they have won their 2nd consecutive match yesterday. Kings XI Punjab, on the other hand, tasted their first defeat of the season. In a high scoring thriller, KKR batted first and scored 218-4 in their 20 overs.

Russell chipped in with some extraordinary power-hitting once again and he gave his team a quickfire 48 off 17 balls with 5 maximums. In reply, the Kings XI Punjab lost wickets on regular intervals and Mayank Agarwal's 58 went in vain. David Miller also scored 59 towards the end along with Mandeep Singh (33) but their partnership wasn't enough to take the Kings over the line.
