Commentary

Hop over here to follow KKR v MI. That is all from this game. Good bye

Wriddhiman Saha is the Man of the Match. Saha: "Me and Manan were thinking of scoring as much as possible in first six overs and keeping the momentum going. He (Vohra) is outstanding, timing the ball properly. Good pitch, 400 runs in 40 overs."

Bailey: "I walked off at the half way point angry at our bowlers. Maybe we bowled okay, I am not sure. Saha and Manan were outstanding. Really pleasing thing was it looked calculated, did not like they were slogging or taking everything on, they were really good cricket shots, it gave the rest of the guys the confidence that it was a chaseable total. At the halfway stage, I was thinking if it was one of those ones where I would be asked if we toss again, if I would change it. It just skids on a little bit, it did feel like it was coming on quite nicely (batting second), but it felt like it was coming on nicely all day. You get the first one away and you get some confidence I guess. We are not relying overly on Maxwell and Miller, though they have had a fantastic series. Other guys are contributing, which is important."

Kings XI have been asked to chase 200-plus twice this season, and they have done it successfully both times. And by the time Maxwell came in today, Kings XI were 95 for 2 in 7.1 overs. Credit to Saha and Vohra, playing his first game of the season. The win puts Kings XI in relatively safe territory, they have eight now

Sunjay: "Almost a vintage super kings-esque chase. Quick start, busy middle, and captain comes, struggles a bit, but stays in there to finish the game with a six. They've evolved a super kings model with an inform maxi-miller combo too."

Ozee: "Firstly It was ABD against steyn and now its Bailey....steyn is definitely under the pump."
