PBKS vs RR Pitch Report

The Mullanpur, Chandigarh surface helps speed bowlers more since the new ball contributes a little. In two games here, the spinners have claimed just four wickets, while the fast bowlers have claimed almost 23. The first-batting teams in the two IPL 2024 games thus far have scored 174 and 182 runs, indicating that the surface is decent as well. In their previous game here, PBKS ran after 182 runs, but they were unsuccessful once the goal was pursued.

PBKS vs RR Who won yesterday IPL Match?:Punjab suffered their first blow as skipper Shikhar Dhawan was forced to withdraw from the match with a slight injury. As the captain of Punjab, Sam Curran took over. Atharva Taide, a left-hander, started off against Jonny Bairstow. He did not cause any trouble for the scorer after being out for 15 off 12 balls. Bairstow quickly trailed behind him.

Punjab was losing wickets at a rapid pace and their scoring was also lacking. They were 70/5 in 12.1 overs when Jitesh Sharma attempted to raise the PBKS total. His dismissal for 29 runs off of 24 balls left the Kings at 103/6 after 16.1 overs. Their ending has to be strong.

Both Ashutosh Sharma and Liam Livingstone gave it their all. Punjab reached 147/8 in 20 overs thanks to Livingstone’s 21 off 14 balls and Sharma’s 31 off 16 balls. It appeared to be a simple aim for Rajasthan, the table toppers. However, a PBKS vs. RR battle is never simple.

Yashasvi Jaiswal and Tanush Kotian served as Rajasthan’s openers. Kotian was sluggish and took a long time to score, while Jaiswal attempted to play his typical offensive style. Livingstone trapped him, and after 8.2 overs, RR had reached 56/1.

The Royals’ best hitters, Sanju Samson and Riyan Parag, were unable to turn their early lead into a bigger score. After 16.4 overs, RR was 113/4 and both players were back in the pavilion. Soon after Dhruv Jurel was out, RR was at 115/5 in 17.2 overs. The contest seemed tight all of a sudden.

Captain Sam Curran entered the game to bowl for the Kings with 20 required from the final two overs. He was struck by Rovman Powell for consecutive fours. He was out in the next ball, though. Keshav Maharaj was dismissed by Sam with his last delivery. Rajasthan required 10 runs from the last over.

Arshdeep Singh got off to a fantastic start with two dot balls. But Rajasthan still had Shimron Hetmyer, who had previously won it for them against PBKS. When he struck the third delivery for a 6, the odds began to favor RR. Sam Curran made a small blunder at Long On, which allowed him to score a few more runs on the following ball. Hetmyer then struck another six to give Rajasthan a three-wicket win.
