Hussey's efforts not enough

Victorian David Hussey top-scored with 71 but it wasn't enough to guide the Kolkata Knight Riders to victory against the Punjab Kings in the Indian Premier League.

Teammate Brad Hodge (1) offered little support in the middle order as the Knight Riders put together 6-169 from their 20 overs.

A sixth wicket stand of 104 between Hussey and Prasanta Saha went in vain as Punjab romped home for their fourth win on the trot.

Australian Shaun Marsh (40) was a solid contributor for Punjab as they batted first and amassed 6-178.

In Saturday's other match, the Bangalore Royal Challengers defeated the Deccan Chargers by three runs after they successfully defended their modest target of 8-156.

Adam Gilchrist (10 runs off 11 balls) couldn't follow up his century from his previous match.

VVS Laxman (52) and Rohit Sharma (57) were best for Deccan as their run chase fell agonisingly short, finishing on 6-153.
