Knight Riders cruise to victory
Kolkata Knight Riders successfully chased down a target of 127 with five wickets in hand against the Deccan Chargers in the IPL.
The Chargers are still searching for their first victory of the Indian Premier League season.
Batting first in Cuttack after losing the toss, Deccan could only make 126 for seven off their 20 overs with opener Shikhar Dhawan top-scoring with a patient 50 that came at exactly a run a ball.
Kolkata lost wickets at regular intervals in their run chase but they rarely looked in danger and reached their victory target off the first ball of the final over, the winning run coming from a JP Duminy wide.
Captain Gautam Gambhir contributed 30 at the top of the order for Kolkata and, after he had fallen and Yusuf Pathan (six) and Jacques Kallis (23) also came and went, Manoj Tiwary saw the visitors home with an unbeaten 30 from number six.
The victory lifts Kolkata up to third in the table, while Deccan remain in bottom spot after suffering their fifth successive defeat.
