New Delhi: Welcome to our Live coverage of the Indian Premier League (IPL) Match 49 between Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, Mohali. (LIVE SCORECARD | FULL COVERAGE)


Over 5 | Score 39/1 | S Marsh 0 (1) ; Guptill 11 (13)

Umesh back into the attack for his third over. Second delivery, length, slower, seaming down to the leg side as Vohra shimmies down to ramp it over midwicket off his back-foot to get a boundary. Fourth delivery, shorter, seaming to the middle as Vohra shimmies down to slice it over point for another boundary. And Umesh finally guns him down with a bouncer that gets a knick of his glove and Uthappa standing behind takes it comfortably.

M Vohra c Uthappa b Yadav 25 (16b)

Over 4 | Score 28/0 | Vohra 15 (11) ; Guptill 11 (13)

And it is Sunil Narine into the attack now. Second delivery, length, spins slightly in as Vohra creams it down cover, through the gaps for a boundary. Third delivery, fuller as Vohra cheekely drifts it past the keeper, no slip and gets that for again. Nine off the over.  

Over 3 | Score 19/0 | Vohra 6 (7) ; Guptill 11 (11)

Umesh Yadav yet again into the attack for his second over now. On the mic is Chris Lynn, saying that his shoulder is yet not 100% fit, but that he trying to fit in and get better. Runs are coming in ones and twos as the over sums up to eight.  

Over 2 | Score 11/0 | Vohra 1 (3) ; Guptill 9 (9)

And it is Colin de Grandhomme up into the attack, sharing the new ball. Just three off the over. Rather modest start.

Over 1 | Score 8/0 | Vohra 0 (0) ; Guptill 8 (6)

A big, big night for the 10th season of Indian Premier League (IPL) as this match can give an overview of the nxt round of the tournament. Well, KXIP has to pull off a wonder, there at Mohali against the highly confident KKR.

Hashim Amla absent, so Manan Vohra and Martin Guptill is there to open for the home team as Umesh Yadav paces in with the new ball for the visiting team.

Fourth delivery, back of the length, thigh high towards leg side as Guptill glances it down past fine leg for the first boundary of the game. Eight off the over.

TOSS TIME: KKR win toss, elect to bowl first

#IPL Here’s the Points Table at the end of Match 48

— IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) May 9, 2017

Glenn Maxwell-led Kings XI Punjab eye nothing less than two points as they take on Gautam Gambhir’s rampat KKR side, who too would look to avoid complecancy in a bid to finish in top two spots of the IPL 2017 points table.

To book a place in the play offs, Punjab not just need to win their remaining three matches but also want Sunriers Hyderabad or Rising Pune Supergiant to lose all of their remaining matches. However, a win today for KKR would seal play-offs positions, with the current top 4 as the final teams to progress in the next round.

One of the most troublesome decisions for Maxwell as captain would be replacing Hashim Amla, who has left the competition for South Africa’s ODI series against England. Matt Henry, Darren Sammy remaining the possible replacements for the Proteas star.

For Gambhir, meanwhile, a return of Robin Uthappa seems likely.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Indian Premier League (IPL) Match 49:

Kings XI Punjab: Manan Vohra, Martin Guptill, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell (captain), Gurkeerat Singh, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Axar Patel, Darren Sammy, Mohit Sharma, T Natarajan, Sandeep Sharma

Kolkata Knight Riders: Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Gautam Gambhir (captain), Robin Uthappa (wk), Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, Suryakumar Yadav, Chris Woakes, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Umesh Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav
