The manner in which SRH defeated PBKS by a surprising two runs

At Maharaja Yadavindra Singh International Cricket Stadium in Mullanpur, Chandigarh, the match between Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad was marked by a dramatic last over. As the 2016 champions prevailed by a narrow margin of 2 runs, SRH was tasked with defending 29 runs in the final over. In order to accomplish this, captain Pat Cummins selected left-arm pacer iplwin.

While Unadkat did allow 26 runs to be scored in the final over, the fielders’ three fumbled catches were responsible for the entire mishap. By failing to grasp the short ball delivered by PBKS batsman Ashutosh Sharma, Nitish Reddy ultimately palmed it over the boundary for a six. Reddy was positioned at midwicket.

Similar to Reddy, Abdul Samad committed the identical error on the third delivery, which was when Ashutosh lofted the ball over long-off. Ten runs were needed off the final two deliveries as the Punjab Kings’ finisher sought another audacious shot with the fifth delivery.

Again, he was dropped by Rahul Tripathi after delivering the ball over the deep midwicket. His only success, however, was in amassing one. Punjab fell short by two runs despite dafabet Singh’s maximum off the final delivery.

A top-order collapse resulted in Punjab’s loss at their new home base, despite the efforts of Shashank (46 not out off 25 balls) and Ashutosh (33 not out off 15 balls).

The team’s loss was attributed to inadequate batting during the powerplay, as captain Shikhar Dhawan praised the efforts of Teen Patti Joy and Ashutosh. “I feel that Shashank and Ashutosh played a great knock, we restricted them to a good total, but we couldn’t cash in on the first 6 overs, lost 3 wickets and that’s where we fell behind and it cost us in the end,” Dhawan indicated to reporters.
