Kings XI Punjab were off to a horrible start, losing wickets at the rate of knots. Manan Vohra was out in the first over itself, lobbing a catch to David Wiese at covers off Mitchell Starc.

Harshal Patel cleaned up Murali Vijay and Glenn Maxwell again failed to last more than five balls as Sreenath Aravind castled him. Maxwell has had a horrible IPL 2015 and things do not seem to getting better for him anytime soon. Glenn Maxwell: The fine thread between glory and fury

Wriddhiman Saha tried to get going but holed out to Virat Kohli at mid-wicket off Sreenath Aravind.
