Punjab Kings (PBKS) managed to win their last group stage encounter against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) played at the iconic Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on May 22 (Sunday). The Orange Army tried its level best to compete with the Kings from Punjab, but PBKS was a better side in all departments and won the contest easily.

SRH skipper Bhuvneshwar Kumar won the toss and opted to have a bat first. Young batter Priyam Garg was scalped early, but Abhishek Sharma and Rahul Tripathi tried to stabilize the SRH innings. However, none of the SRH batters could convert the starts they got as they finished on 157/8 in their allotted 20 overs.

For PBKS, express pacer Nathan Ellis and Harpreet Brar scalped three crucial wickets each. South African pacer Kagiso Rabada also scalped one wicket but gave away 38 runs in his four-over quota. Left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh and Liam Livingstone did not get any wickets, but they bowled economically.

SRH never looked in the game

In reply, PBKS batters came all guns blazing against the Orange Army. The opening duo of Jonny Bairstow and Shikhar Dhawan gave an excellent start to PBKS. The remaining work was then done by Shahrukh Khan, Liam Livingstone, and Jitesh Sharma. For SRH, Washington Sundar, Jagadeesha Suchith, and Umran Malik scalped one wicket apiece. Left-arm pacer Fazalhaq Farooqi was the pick of the bowlers for SRH as he scalped two wickets of both openers Bairstow and Dhawan. The left-arm spinner Harpreet Brar was adjudged the Player of the Match for his vital contribution.
