Kings XI Punjab continued their surge in the Indian Premier League points table as they recorded their fifth successive win of the season on Saturday. KXIP defeated Kolkata Knight Riders by 8 wickets to take their points table to 12 in 12 matches. It was a clinical performance from the KXIP bowlers as they managed to restrict KKR to just 149. Then Chris Gayle and Mandeep Singh hit fifties to ensure a victory for KXIP. With the win, KXIP move up to the fourth position ahead Kolkata Knight Riders, who have 12 points from the same number of matches but a lesser Net Run Rate.
There is no other movement in the top-four apart from this. The bottom-half of the table is the one where teams keep on moving up and down.
