IPL: KKR ride Rana, Russell show to rout Punjab

Nitish Rana and Robin Uthappa slammed half centuries while Andre Russell plundered a 17-ball 48 as Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) romped to a 28-run victory against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in a lopsided Indian Premier League (IPL) clash at the Eden Gardens here on Wednesday.

Asked to bat, Rana (63; 34b, 4×2; 6×7) and Uthappa 67 not-out (50b, 4×6, 6×2) set the platform for the two-time champions before Russell made the most of a reprieve to virtually take the game away from Punjab as Dinesh Karthik-led KKR posted 218/4, the highest total at this venue.
