Kolkata Knight Riders Beat Kings XI Punjab to Clinch Second IPL Title in Three Years
Manish Pandey's innings made sure Wriddhiman Saha's valiant knock of 115 not out went in vain as Kolkata Knight Riders beat Kings XI Punjab by 3 wickets to clinch their 2nd IPL title at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium yesterday.
Put in to bat, the Kings XI was powered to a strong total of 199/4 by Saha's maiden and brilliant century after they suffered an early setback.
In reply, Pandey's 94 anchored the 2012 edition champions to victory with only 3 balls to spare.
The Kolkata-based outfit becomes only the second team to win two titles after the Chennai Super Kings in 2010 and 2011.
