Sharjah, Oct 26 (IANS) Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) opening batsman Shubman Gill returned to form with a half-century, but Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) came back to apply brakes and restrict the Kolkata franchise to 149 for nine wickets in 20 overs in an Indian Premier League match.

Gill scored a 45-ball 57 and shared an 81-run partnership with skipper Eoin Morgan for the fourth wicket. Morgan made 40 off 25 balls. Lockie Ferguson hammered a 13-ball 24 to give some respectability to the total.
