Kings XI Punjab secured a 26-run win over Gujarat Lions in Rajkot - their first in five games. Even though Dinesh Karthik (58) was the top scorer for Gujarat on the day, the Twitterartti were not too pleased with his scoring rate and his teammate Dwayne Smith's performance with the ball.

Brief Scores: Kings XI Punjab 188/7 (Hashim Amla 65, Axar Patel 34; Andrew Tye 2/35; Nathu Singh 1/7) beat Gujarat Lions 162/7(Dinesh Karthik 58*, Suresh Raina 32, KC Cariappa 2/24, Axar Patel 2/36) by 26 runs.

Here are the best tweets from the match:

Pre-match banter

Punjab fans react to Sir Ishant Sharma's exclusion from the team

He now holds the orange cap as well!

Well that has been the trend!

Dinesh Karthik's 58* off 44 balls didn't get the reaction he would have hoped for

But DK wasn't the only one to be bashed

Just a difference of 118 runs in the margin of victory!
