Cuttack, May 11 : Kings XI Punjab scored 149 for eight against Kolkata Knight Riders in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the Barabati Stadium here Sunday.
Put in to bat, Kings XI were given a rollicking start by Virender Sehwag (72). At 87 for two in 10 overs, Punjab seemed well on their way to another imposing score.
But Piyush Chawla (3-19), playing against his former team, removed Sehwag and the dangerous Glenn Maxwell (14), putting the brakes on the scoring rate.
David Miller (13) also couldn't repeat his earlier innings while captain George Bailey (12 not out) failed to produce the whirlwind finish he has often provided as Punjab managed just 33 runs off the final five overs.
