Meanwhile, KXIP captain Rahul, after the win said that he is happy to get two more points in the bag.
“It’s not the first time, I’m getting used to it but we’ll take the two points however they come. It doesn’t always happen so you don’t know how to stay balanced in a situation like this. We have put in some really amazing performances even in the games we lost. We’re trying to come back harder in each game and wins like these help,” he said.
KXIP will next have a face-off with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in their reverse fixture on Monday (October 26).
