Shah Rukh Khan owned Kolkata Knight Riders posted their first points on the IPL Season-2 score board by overcoming Preity Zinta’s King’s XI Punjab via the Duckworth-Lewis method on a rain marred Tuesday at Kingsmead, Durban.
The Knights were declared winners by 11 runs after rain stopped their chase at 79 for 1 in 9.2 overs. The Kings XI gave a target of 158 runs.
Chris Gayle blazed away as if to show that the Knights would get to their target without the help of the rain gods. He was unbeaten on 44 off 26 deliveries when the rain lashed down.
