Day 16, Match 21, LSG vs PBKS: Badshahcric Highlights - IPL 2023
BADSHAHBOOK: Punjab Kings (PBKS) secured a two-wicket victory over Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) at the Ekana Cricket Stadium on April 15, following two consecutive losses. The match was also Lucknow's first defeat at home.
Opting to bowl first after winning the toss, PBKS managed to restrict LSG to 159 runs, despite a quick start from their openers KL Rahul and Kyle Mayers. Harpreet Brar claimed the wicket of Mayers in the eighth over, providing the first breakthrough for PBKS.
Rahul held one end firmly and witnessed a flurry of wickets fall from the other end. However, the LSG skipper's well-compiled knock of 74 runs helped the team post a competitive total of 159/8 in their 20 overs.
PBKS started their chase poorly, losing both openers cheaply. Matthew Short and Harpreet Bhatia then steadied the innings, but LSG fought back to leave the game evenly poised. But, Sikandar Raza's 50 and Shahrukh Khan's match-winner knock of 23 runs off 10 balls marked the tie for PBKS.
In the final over, Shahrukh Khan played a few mishits that fell short of the deep fielders, allowing him to scamper for twos before putting away the third ball past the extra cover boundary to secure the win for PBKS.
