True.
Ganguly got 239 on this ground.
Gayle got 175*.

Says a lot about how easy it is to score here.

19 for 1 after 2 means they are pretty much right on track.

Punjab's bowling is weak.
And this is a small ground.
KKR should be able to get this.

This is Manish Pandey's home ground.
Then there's Yousuf Pathan, Shakib, Ryan ten Doeschate...
Even Piyush can hit them quite easily.

Will be hard for Punjab to win this.

Punjab desperately need wickets.
They're not going to be able to win by just trying to choke the run-rate.

Piyush Chawla has done this sort of thing before.
He's a pretty decent batsman - actually an allrounder.
He played county cricket in England - and had some useful innings, if I remember right.

Ever since the departure of Ganguly from KKR, it has looked a much better outfit altogether, hasn't it?

I always thought he was going to end up coaching KKR after retiring, bur SRK is a smart man.
It is not often u com across a quality individual who lives n breathes loyalty 2 his country n teammates.His individual contribution has been outstanding despite continuing unwarranted n unfair criticism that he gets from both media n public–Dav on Misbah

I had a feeling 199 wasn't enough. Chased too many times here at Bangalore. They won with 3 balls left instead of 6, but I was pretty spot on.

KXI almost pulled it back there in the end. Bailey almost ran them out to victory. That short ball from Mitch lost 'em the game. But all credit to KKR since they kept up with the rate the entire time. Pandey take a bow.

I feel glad that Narine didn't blow it for KKR. Even had a couple runs in the end.

Poor Preity.

Surprised with the Maxwell player of the series but saying that he did have an amazing start to the series which was good to see, he really set Kings XI off to a great start and T20 cricket is all about momentum which he provided them with. I was surprised Bailey batted at 3, strange to say the least.

This is probably what won KKR the match:

8 - The number of dots played by Knight Riders during their Powerplay, the least by any team in IPL 2014.

Perfect start to keep up with a tough chase.

I hate the fact that the beautiful face of Priety was denied a smile and pigface SRK got it instead but a comforting thought is, priety looks sweet even when smiling and I shudder to imagine how a frowing SRK would look like.. So not yet sure if this was a good thing or bad thing whole wide world considered.

I may not like SRK. But given the fact that SRK had to DEAL with Ganguli for 3 years ( KKR rank 8th, 7th and 4 or 5 in those three years ) , he has done his time, and deserves some rewards. Same for KKR and its fans.
