IPL 2013: Gambhir Sets Up Rare Kolkata Victory
Kolkata Knight Riders 152-6 (Gambhir 50) beat
Pune Warriors 106 (Balaji 3-19) by 46 runs
Indian Premier League 2013, Guhunje
Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Pune Warriors by 46 runs in a one-sided Indian Premier League 2013 match in Guhunje, taking their first away win of the competition.
Neither side can qualify for the play-offs and after Kolkata made 152 for six, Pune were dismissed for just 106, Lakshmipathy Balaji taking three for 19.
Kolkata captain Gautam Gambhir had earlier top scored with 50 in 44 balls and Ryan ten Doeschate made 31 in 21 to put Kolkata on course.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar took three for 25 and Mitchell Marsh two for seven to give the home side hope but that hope quickly disappeared when they were reduced to 39 for three in reply.
Despite Robin Uthappa making a steadfast 31 in 35 balls and Angelo Mathews a belligerent 40 in 28, that was as good as it got for the bottom team and no other players could reach double figures.
Iqbal Abdulla, Jacques Kallis and Sunil Narine all chipped in with two wickets.
