Punjab Kings with two out of two wins came up against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Kings were rattled by some brilliant bowling from the Sunrisers bowlers. If it wasn’t for the Punjab skipper’s 99, Punjab Kings would’ve been bundled for somewhere around 50 or may be 60. Dhawan held one end but he kept losing partners, but he ensured they play full quota of 20 overs and took his team to 143 which allowed their bowlers to bowl at something. Hyderabad cruised to victory with close to 3 overs to spare.
Gujarat Titans on the other hand hadn’t put a foot wrong in the tournament until that Rinku Singh’s final over mayhem. Gujarat Titans were up against Kolkata Knight Riders. Titans rode on Vijay Shankar’s blistering knock of 63 to put up 204. Titans were in total control of the run chase except for that Venkatesh Iyer’s brilliant 83 off 40 but once he got out Knight Riders lost their way.
Rinku Singh who was struggling to time the ball hit Josh Little for a six and a boundary to finish the penultimate over. With 29 to get off the final over, Titans thought, this game was in their bag. Yash Dayal came on to bowl and the rest was history. Rinku Singh five sixes in a row to snatch the win out of the jaws of the defeat and Titans were left dumbfounded in the end.
