KXIP struggled to keep their wickets for much of the innings before Pooran took off and had a 69-run partnership with Glenn Maxwell for the fourth wicket. Pooran did most of the striking in the partnership. James Neesham, brought in place of Chris Jordan, took KXIP over the line with a six off the last ball of the 19th over.
