VIDEO : Mohammed Shami Took Almost 2 Wickets in One Ball

Kolkata Knight Riders got to 165/7 against Punjab Kings in Dubai. Venkatesh Iyer was the top score with 67 runs and Rahul Tripathi also played a crucial 34-run knock for KKR.

It was good show from Punjab Kings bowlers in the death overs to restrict Kolkata Knight Riders to 165/7 in 20 overs at the Dubai International Stadium. Arshdeep Singh was leading Wicket taker for Punjab Kings took 3/32.

Direct-hit from Mohammed Shami finds Tim Seifert short of the crease at the non-striker’s end. This was a yorker and Seifert went for a reverse hit but the ball hit his boot as the batter set off for a quick single but Shami was alert and got him run out.

Punjab’s excellent death-bowling came to the force once again as Mohammed Shami and Arshdeep Singh hit the blockhole more often than not giving easy runs for the batters to hit runs. Just gave 44 runs in the last five overs.

Kolkata Knight Riders are aiming to strengthen their play-offs qualification hopes with a win against struggling Punjab Kings.
