Kings XI claim convincing win
Kings XI Punjab kept their Indian Premier League play-off hopes going with a 25-run win over whipping boys Deccan Chargers.
Mandeep Singh set the tone as he clubbed 75 in 48 balls at the top of the Kings XI order, seeing them to a total of 170 for five.
Deccan replied with 145 for eight, with opener Daniel Harris' 30 their top score.
Apart from Singh's innings, which contained eight fours and three sixes, there were four other double-figure contributions in Punjab's score - with David Miller's 28 not out the highest.
Praveen Kumar sent down a superb four overs to ensure Deccan's response did not get going, removing Shikhar Dawan with his fifth ball and closing with figures of two for 15.
David Hussey then ended any hopes of a late surge, bowling his only over for two runs and claiming the key wickets of Harris and Cameron White.
