WATCH: MS Dhoni weaves wicket-keeping magic to dismiss Sunil Narine in typical fashion during RPS vs KKR game
KKR captain Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa reached the target in only the 19th over to go top of IPL standings.
New Delhi: Rising Pune Supergiant skipper Steve Smith thought he had put a competitive total on board after he led his team to 182/5 against two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders in an Indian Premier League match on Wednesday night.
The total, however, didn't prove to be enough as KKR captain Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa chased it down in only the 19th over.
The Supergiant thought to have taken a step forward after Dhoni produced a magical run-out to dismiss Sunil Narine, following a brilliant piece of fielding work by Shardul Thakur.
India discard Robin Uthappa struck a match-winning 87 off just 47 balls balls and was ably supported by skipper Gautam Gambhir, who made 62 off 46 deliveries, as two-time champions KRR regained their spot in top of the standings with six wins from eight games.
While Uthappa decorated his knock with seven boundaries and six hits over the fence, Gambhir innings was laced with six fours and one six.
The duo stitched 158 runs off just 85 balls for the second wicket to help KKR chase down the 183-run target with 11 balls to spare.
