Chris Gayle and KL Rahul

He has shown once more why he is the greatest T20 batsman.

After the match, Pooran, while speaking to Mayank Agarwal, named a player who according to him is the greatest T20 player of all time. When he is at the crease, there is a different mood inside the camp. Chasing the target, Kings XI Punjab were cruising to victory as KL Rahul and Chris Gayle scored massive half-centuries going into the last over of the game.

Before the scheduled start of play, Kohli was seen vibing on his own as he brought out some really "filmy" dance moves.

In their first match of the tournament against Delhi Capitals, KXIP had failed to score the required single run of the last three balls and the game headed to a Super Over where they lost the game. However, just one run was needed off the final ball where Pooran stepped in and finished the innings with a six.

With big-hitter Gayle departing off the penultimate ball, Pooran walked in to hit the winning six.

The top U.S. negotiator, Marshall Billingslea, suggested in a tweet later Friday that talks between the two countries were over. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told Putin Friday that "intensive" consultations on the treaty are underway.

He said: "The last over started, it was like deja vu".

A million things were running in my mind. I never wanted to be in that position.

"I think there are wins out there and we just as a team need to go out there and get those wins".
