TATA IPL 2022 Live: Almost everyone showed up for Punjab, including Dhawan, Agarwal, Rajapaksa, Livingstone, SRK, and Smith. Even though no one got a fifty, they were able to chase down more than 200 runs with an over to spare.
Everyone batted with a positive attitude, which aided Punjab in crossing the finish line. RCB appeared to have plenty of runs to play with, but the Dhawan-Agarwal pair came together quickly. They were off to a flier, and the groundwork had been laid.
They continued to lose wickets at regular intervals, but they were never retrained. When things were getting close for Punjab, RCB dropped Smith, which didn’t help their cause. Smith burst with an 8-ball 25 when things were getting tight for Punjab.
Faf and company had performed admirably as a batting team, but it wasn’t enough. Faf the skipper hasn’t had much luck as a beginning, but Mayank can return to sport with a great smile on his face.
Punjab Kings defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by 5 wickets at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai on Sunday in the ongoing IPL 2022 season. With one over to go, PBKS chased down a 206-point target, owing primarily to Shahrukh Khan and Odean Smith‘s late charge. After RCB had pinned back PBKS with fast wickets, Shahrukh and Smith stitched an unbroken stand of 52.
Earlier, Faf du Plessis top-scored with 88, while Virat Kohli and Dinesh Karthik’s cameos propelled RCB to a mammoth total of 205 for two. Du Plessis and Anuj Rawat gave RCB a great start after being asked to bat first, amassing 50 runs for the first wicket before the latter was removed in the seventh over.
The captain and Kohli shared 118 runs for the second wicket as RCB continued to pile on the runs. However, before Dinesh Karthik brought much-needed fireworks to RCB’s innings, Du Plessis lost out on his century. Rahul Chahar and Arshdeep Singh each grabbed a wicket for Punjab Kings. PBKS initially won the toss and elected to field. Both franchises will be led by new captains, and both will be looking to win this match.

“We were stressing about having a good start. We just needed to have that belief. Didn’t go so well with the bowling. I need to work on a few things. Batting was good as I helped my team to win. It was all about execution and I couldn’t and that’s why it went haywire. Punjab hasn’t won the title so far but we need to have the belief. We watched ’14 peaks’, 13 remain for us.” Odean Smith said after the game.
