Another match, another day that Ashwin saw himself become the centerpiece of attention after his agonizing decision became the sole reason for his side to taste defeat. Having wiped up Russell’s wickets in the 17th over with a delightful yorker, one that left Russell cramped up for the room, Shami had to walk back to the umpire adjudging it to be a no ball. The exquisite work was all undone by his captain, with Ashwin failing to include four circles inside the circle for that delivery, seeing his side miss out on what would have seen them end the match perfectly.

It was that underwhelming piece of captaincy that turned the match on its head. Having done extremely well to come back into the encounter after seeing their bowling being taken apart by Robin (67) and Rana (63) with their 110 runs stand to make 200 a real possibility, Tye and Shami kept things controlled with two tight, well-delivered overs at the dead end of the innings. With Russell fortuitous to survive, he went onto make 48 in 17 balls, taking the match away from Punjab in a jiffy, undoing all the good work done by them previously.KKR Vs KXIP match highlights

Needing a colossal 219 to win, Punjab’s start couldn’t have been anymore calamitous for them. Both openers Gayle (20) and Rahul (1) departed early on and despite Miller and Mayank picking up the pieces for their side, it wasn’t enough to paper over the cracks that a tepid start had incurred to their bid to make it two wins out of two.

In Kuldeep, Narine and Chawla, KKR’s spinners ensured that despite Miller (59) and Mayank (58) both reaching their half-centuries and establishing a 74-run stand, they weren’t allowed to open their arms and take on the slower bowlers as needed. The run rate skyrocketed with each passing over and, in the end, it was a chase that fizzled out for Punjab as they merely carried out the necessary formalities, going all the way down to fourth place with a 28-run defeat as they closed out their innings for 190-4 from their allocated 20 overs
