Sidelights:

It seems that KXIP has announced that no team should give them a target in excess of 200, at least in this edition of IPL. This time their main stay Glenn Maxwell and Miller did well but not that well but then Wriddhiman Saha and Manan Vohra came to the party and scored record 86 runs in the Powerplay it self which means that from then on it was a stroll in the park for KXIP.
