PBKS vs LSG, Match Review:

It was a score Punjab Kings would have fancied after an impressive bowling effort. But none of the Punjab batters managed to stay long at the crease to provide some hope as wickets kept tumbling at regular intervals.

Mohsin Khan picked three while Chameera and Krunal picked two apiece to restrict Punjab to just 133 for eight. Earlier, at 98/1 in the 13th over with two well-set batters in Quinton de Kock and Deepak Hooda meant a big totals awaited the Lucknow Super Giants.

But some disciplined bowling from Kagiso Rabada and Rahul Chahar saw Punjab restrict Lucknow to 153 for eight in 20 overs. Sandeep Sharma plotted De Kock’s dismissal in the 13th over before  lazy run-out dismissal saw Hooda walk back in the very next over. Rabada’s double whammy and Chahar’s twin strikes further triggered a collapse as LSG eventually went eight down against Punjab.

Post-Match Review:

Player of the Match, Krunal Pandya,

I have been bowling well. For the last 7-8 months, I have been working hard. Special mention to Rahul Sanghvi. The results everyone can see as I have tried to improve skillwise. Lot of times when you are playing shorter formats you don’t realise a lot of things. I have been trying to increase my height with my release and some things on my grip. I took Rahul Sanghvi’s help and it has worked. Batting is slightly close to my heart. I haven’t been contributing much with the bat but it is a long tournament and going forward I will look to contribute with the bat.

Winning Captain KL Rahul,

I was disappointed and fuming at the end of the first innings. Stupid cricket with the bat. It does happen but we did talk about it at the time-out. We did talk that we can defend 160 as this wasn’t a great pitch. The crucial runs at the back end and then the execution with the ball helped us win. We need to get better with the bat. Half-time, when Quinny and Deepak were batting they paced it really really well to get to 60 in 9 overs on a tricky wicket. Had we batted smartly, we could have gotten to 180-190. The way we responded with the ball was phenomenal. Krunal has been brilliant throughout the tournament. This season he has really worked on his bowling. Bowling economically is important but he has been giving us two three wickets in the middle overs. Bishnoi is an aggressive bowler. We are fine with him going for a few fours and sixes looking to go for wickets. I think we just need to be smarter in reading the game. If we could have not played too many shots we could have done better. We have been good on the field and good with the ball. Just need to keep repeating the good things.
