  • Khaleel then dabbed the next ball to point and started strolling towards the non-striker's end. He sped up only when he spotted the fielder sprinting towards the ball but by then it was too late and he was run out.

  • Boundaries and sixes were hard to come by and KXIP batsmen's struggle can be gauged from the fact they failed to find the fence for more than 11 overs, which was finally broken by Nicholas Pooran in the 19th over.
