Punjab Kings (PBKS) had a really sluggish day as a batting unit against Rajasthan Royals (RR). None of their batters, barring impact substitute Ashutosh Sharma, could get going against the dominating bowling unit of the Royals.

The absence of skipper Shikhar Dhawan turned out to be critical for Punjab Kings (PBKS). Atharva Taide was brought into the playing11 in Dhawan’s place, but he could justify his selection.

Though Punjab managed to reach a respectable total (147) at the end of the 20th over, their batters had an upsetting day in the field. The likes of Jonny Bairstow, Atharva Taide, Prabhsimran Singh, Sam Curran and Shashank Singh couldn’t get going.

However, late in the innings, wicketkeeper batter Jitesh Sharma (29 runs) provided some good defence, followed by a short assault from Liam Livingstone (21 runs), before impact substitute Shashank Singh played a blinder. Shashank added 31 runs to the total in a mere 16 deliveries to give Punjab something to defend.

With a mere 147 runs to chase, Rajasthan Royals had no run-rate pressure from the start of the innings. The RR batters took their time to pace the innings. Despite some hiccups midway through the innings, RR won the contest by 3 wickets in the final over.

Opener Yashasvi Jaiswal remained the biggest contributor for the team with a score of 39 runs in 28 deliveries. Jaiswal had a decent partnership with opener Tanush Kotian upfront in the innings. Later he paired alongside Sanju Samson to go close to the required total.

Later in the innings, Shimran Hetmyer played an unbeaten 10-ball 27 run innings to take his side home by three wickets. Let’s take a look at IPL Points Table 2024 Updated [April 14] after PBKS vs RR.
