Mohali – The Kings XI Punjab beat the Pune Warriors India by seven wickets in their Indian Premier League clash on Sunday.

The Pune Warriors batted first, and opened their innings on a good note. Robin Uthappa, Aaron Finch and Yuvraj Singh posted 37, 64, and 34 runs respectively. The struggling team set a good target of 185 runs, and things looked promising.

But the Kings XI had other ideas, and displayed great form with the bat, despite some early scares. Adam Gilchrist fell for four and Azhar Mahmood went out for naught runs. Mandeep Singh held the fort for the Kings XI, batting for an unbeaten 77 runs. And David Miller posted whopping 80 runs off 41 balls to reach 186 runs, with one ball remaining.

The Pune Warriors are still languishing at the bottom of the table, they are in second last place with four points. The Kings XI are in the middle of the table with six points.
