RESULT: Kolkata beat Punjab by 7 wickets (Shubman Gill 65, Mohammad Shami 1/15) 

  May 03, 2019  23:26 (IST)

With that SIX from Dinesh Karthik's bat, Kolkata need just three runs.

  May 03, 2019  23:21 (IST)

It wouldn't be wrong to say that Kolkata Knight Riders are on the driver's seat. They came with a set plan and have been able to execute it perfectly. Shubman Gill is playing with maturity as Kolkata is just 18 runs away from a famous win. 

  May 03, 2019  23:07 (IST)

WICKET: Finally, Russelll departs. He tried to clear the fence again, but not this time! Shami provides the breakthough. And guess what? Andrew Tye takes the catch. 

  May 03, 2019  23:05 (IST)

50-run partnership between Andre Russell and Shubhamn Gill. 

  May 03, 2019  23:05 (IST)

Brutal. Sheer Power. Lost of adjectives to define this human. Absolute delight to watch - ANDRE RUSSELL.

  May 03, 2019  23:01 (IST)

Oh dear! What have you done! DROPPED Andre Russell on 14! Mayank Agarwal would be kicking himself for that mistake. After 14 overs, it's 145/2. 

  May 03, 2019  22:58 (IST)

MILESTONE ALERT: Andre Russell gets to 500 IPL runs! 

  May 03, 2019  22:57 (IST)

Pressure..Pressure! Andrew Tye is under serious pressure! 

  May 03, 2019  22:54 (IST)

So Andre Russell has joined Shubhman Gill in the middle. Gill is playing positively and utilizing his experience. He has played Ranji matches in Mohali for Punjab, and has been able to do everything right. After 13 overs, it's 128/2.

  May 03, 2019  22:54 (IST)

ALERT: Shubhman Gill gets to his 4th IPL fifty!

  May 03, 2019  22:44 (IST)

WICKET: Ravichandran Ashwin tossed the ball up and Robin Uthappa just couldn't clear the fence. Robin Uthappa departs after yet another start. Skipper strikes. 

  May 03, 2019  22:35 (IST)

Robin or Robbie but he is looking really good out there. Shubhamn Gill is also playing with responsibilty and KKR is 90/1 after 9 overs. 

  May 03, 2019  22:25 (IST)

After a blistering innings of 46 off 22 balls, Chris Lynn departs! Kolkata, at the end of the powerplay see themselves 62/1. 

  May 03, 2019  21:43 (IST)

Punjab 183/6 in 20 overs vs Kolkata (Sam Curran 55, Sandeep Warrier 2/31)

  May 03, 2019  21:42 (IST)

ALERT: Sam Curran slams maiden IPL fifty! 

  May 03, 2019  21:37 (IST)

The penultimate over of the innings went for 10 runs and Russell was able to send the Punjab's skipper. After 19 overs, it's 161/6. 

  May 03, 2019  21:33 (IST)

WICKET: Knocked him over! Skipper Ravichandran Ashwin departs for yet another DUCK. Russell bowled a slower one and Ashwin just couldn't read it. 

  May 03, 2019  21:31 (IST)

150 up for Kings XI Punjab in 18th over! 

  May 03, 2019  21:29 (IST)

WICKET: Gurney bowls a slower one and Mandeep Singh couldn't clear the 30-yard circle. Easy catch for Robin Uthappa. 

  May 03, 2019  21:25 (IST)

Oh dear! Rinklu Singh drops Sam Curran. How expensive can this be? 

  May 03, 2019  21:21 (IST)

Runs have been hard to come by. Mandeep Singh is smashing a boundary or two on every fourth delivery but the hosts need more than that at this stage. After 16 overs, it's 132/4.

  May 03, 2019  21:08 (IST)

WICKET: Oh dear! Mayank Agarwal was looking good and has lost the wicket in worst fashion possible. RUN OUT! 

  May 03, 2019  21:07 (IST)

The run-rate has come down by some margin after Nicholas Pooran's wicket. However, Mayank Agarwal and Mandeep Singh are trying to rebuild Kings XI Punjab's innings. After 13 overs, 109/3. 

  May 03, 2019  20:58 (IST)

100 up for Kings XI Punjab in 12 overs! Mayank Agarwal is still at the crease. 

  May 03, 2019  20:54 (IST)

WICKET: 48 for Nicholas Pooran and one has to say, he has done the job for his side. Rana had the last laugh. 

  May 03, 2019  20:52 (IST)

The first leg of the innings is slightly in host favor. Mayank and Pooran are looking in good touch as they are able to end 10 overs at 84 for the loss of two wickets.

  May 03, 2019  20:46 (IST)

50-run partnership between Nicholas Pooran and Mayank Agarwal. The duo took 29 balls to reach the milestone. 

  May 03, 2019  20:41 (IST)

After losing the opners early, Kings XI Punjab has made a small comeback as Nicholas Pooran being able to hammer the ball all-around the ground. After 8 overs, 68/2. 

  May 03, 2019  20:34 (IST)

50 up for Kings XI Punjab in 6.4 overs! Nicholas Pooran is looking solid. 

  May 03, 2019  20:30 (IST)

The powerplay belongs to the visitors as they have been able to send the openers back to the pavilion. In a must win game, Punjab has lost two in-form players. However, Nicholas Pooran is looking good. After 6 overs, it's 41/2. 

  May 03, 2019  20:23 (IST)

WICKET: Sandeep pitches a short of a length delivery and Gayle tried to smash it over mid-wicket fielder but falls short by some margin. Openers are back to the pavilion. OUT for 14. 

  May 03, 2019  20:15 (IST)

So Punjab has lost the first wicket in form of KL Rahul and the onus to build Punjab's innings will be on Chris Gayle and Mayank Agarwal. After 3 overs, it's 19/1.

  May 03, 2019  20:13 (IST)

WICKET: Sandeep Warrior bowl a slower one and KL Rahul just couldn't time it. Departs for 2. 

  May 03, 2019  19:36 (IST)

Here are the playing XI for two sides: 

Kolkata Knight Riders: Sunil Narine, Chris Lynn, Shubman Gill, Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik(w/c), Andre Russell, Rinku Singh, Piyush Chawla, Sandeep Warrier, Harry Gurney

  May 03, 2019  19:31 (IST)

TOSS: Kolkata opt to bowl

  May 03, 2019  18:25 (IST)

The toss is scheduled to happen at 19:30 pm (IST) from now and team winning the toss will look to have a bat first, as chasing been comparatively difficult at Mohali wicket. However, this remains to be seen if the toss-winning captain goes with same mindset. 

  May 03, 2019  18:17 (IST)

If they wish to be in the scheme of things, two teams have to win their remaining two games, and the one who lose today will virtually be knocked out of the tournament.

  May 03, 2019  18:16 (IST)

With four teams still in contention, the game between Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab prove to be a must win game for two sides.

  May 03, 2019  18:16 (IST)

Hello and a warm welcome. We are all set to witness another crackerjack of an encounter as Ravichandran Ashwin-led Kings XI Punjab hosts Kolkata Knight Riders at IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali.
