The left-handed batsman from South Africa smashed 101 off just 38 balls to help his side chase down a massive 191 with 12 balls to spare.
Live updates from game 51 of IPL 6 between Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore played at the PCA Stadium in Mohali.
The door is closing down slowly and gradually for Kings XI Punjab as they seek their fifth win of the season against a top-favourite Royal Challengers Bangalore. Punjab are still quite a distant away from the top four and a win is a necessary tonic to make things easier for them. However, it might not be a walk in the park as Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians too are in the hunt.
Bangalore, who finally broke their 'away' jinx in the game against Pune have quite easily been one of the teams to beat. With an emphatic batting line-up including the likes of Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers, RCB's ability to put up or chase down a big total can never be underestimated.
