Chasing 160 runs, the Punjab Kings team got off to a poor start. The new opener Adharva (0) was a dacoit.. Prabhasimran Singh (4) also got off. But… Mathew Short (34: 5×4 in 22 balls, 2×6) who came in at No. 3 and Harpreet Singh (22: 3×4 in 22 balls) who came after him stopped the fall of wickets for a while and established a partnership of 28 runs for the third wicket. But.. after the out of these two, the Punjab team started to falter again. Captain Sam Karan (6) and Jitesh Sharma (2) were dismissed respectively. However, middle order batsman Sikander Raza (57: 4×4, 3×6 in 41 balls) remained stubborn at the crease. Although he took some time to settle in the crease, he was careful not to widen the gap between balls and runs by hitting huge sixes in the bowling of the spinners.
But.. Sikander Raza got out at the team score of 139. With that, Punjab needed 20 runs in the last 12 balls to win. At this stage Shahrukh Khan (23 not out: 1×4, 2×6 off 10 balls) scored a six and a four off the bowling of Markwood in the 19th over of the innings. He changed the equation to 7 runs off 6 balls. Spinner Ravi Bishnoi bowled the last over. Shahrukh Khan completed the victory with two consecutive doubles and a boundary in the first three balls. Lucknow team made a series of mistakes not only in batting and bowling but also in fielding.
