Sam Curran and Kagiso Rabada were brilliant with the ball picking up 3 and 2 wickets respectively.

Punjab had a rough time with the chase as they kept losing wickets at regular intervals. However, Matt Short and Sikandar Raza played some very crucial knocks in the middle overs to keep their side alive in the game, with Raza’s fifty coming in big clutch.

It was Shahrukh Khan who rose up to the occasion and finished the job for his side handing them the 2-wicket win over their opponents.
