    Quinton De Kock scored a stunning 140 not out as Lucknow Super Giants picked up a close win over Kolkata Knight Riders today in the Indian Premier League.

    Batting first, LSG lost nothing, getting to 210/0 in their 20 overs.

    KL Rahul scored 68 not out.

    In reply, KKR lost two early wickets, but were steadied thanks to the efforts of Nitesh Rana (42) and skipper Shreyas Iyer (50).

    They drew closer to the total, but even a late flurry from Sunil Narine (21 not out) and Riinku Singh (40), could not get them over the line.

    KKR ended on 208/8 in their 20 overs.

    LSG sit 2nd on the IPL table, while KKR are 6th.
