    Shashank Singh reacts to his 29-ball blitz

    Shashank Singh: Still trying to sink in. Visualised all these things, but when it turned into reality, proud of the effort. When I go to bat I think I am the best. 

  • April 04, 2024 23:21
    “This is IPL. Players you’ve not seen before will come and win games”

    This statement from Shubman Gill, who finds himself on the losing side, sums up why this tournament has been so important for Indian cricket. Shashank Singh and Ashutosh Sharma - the stars of a memorable Punjab Kings victory. 

  • April 04, 2024 23:19
    Punjab Kings arrests its losing streak

    After two disappointing losses, Punjab Kings has found a way to break the rut. A nice three wicket win with a lot of character from its batters. 

  • April 04, 2024 23:06
    PBKS 200/7 in 19.5 Overs

    Darshan Nalkande is given the ball. How about that for faith? HE STRIKES FIRST BALL! OH MY WORD, THE DRAMA! He begins with a slower one and Ashutosh skies the ball. It’s a simple catch for Rashid Khan at long on. Nalkande bowls short with the ball going over the batter Harpreet Brar’s head. Wide given. Shubman has a hand on his bowler’s shoulder. Six needed off five now. Fine leg comes in to the circle. Mid on drops back. Nalkande bowls similarly and a wide is given. This time, Wriddhiman Saha asks for it to be reviewed. Good sense prevails as the wide is recalled. Harpreet then runs a single. The equation is down to five runs off three balls and Shashank Singh is on strike. Luck favours the brave and Shashank’s attempt to flick the ball produces a big outside edge which runs down short third for four. Scores level. Shubman brings the fielders in to deny the single. Nalkande goes for the yorker, which Shashank manages to dispatch. It runs behind him but Saha stops the ball. However, umpire gives the bye. Gujarat reviews for lbw, but the batter is in the clear. Punjab Kings beat Gujarat Titans by three wickets. What a match.

  • April 04, 2024 23:04
    PBKS 193/6 in 19 Overs

    Mohit Sharma returns. Begins with a low full toss which is thumped for a single. Ashutosh Sharma then uses Mohit’s drop in pace to slog the ball over midwicket for SIX. Mohit sticks to the slower ball and Ashutosh tries again, but doesn’t get the distance. Sai Sudarshan sends it back to safety. Ashutosh has been stepping well behind in the crease to allow himself some room. The result - the equation is down to seven runs needed off the last six balls. 18 runs conceded in this over. It will all presumably come down to Umesh Yadav. This is now Punjab’s game to lose. 

  • April 04, 2024 22:58
    PBKS 175/6 in 18 Overs

    Omarzai is given the ball. Ashutosh gets going with back to back fours - first over square leg and the next a ramp shot over the keeper’s head. Short balls from Omarzai is making it easy for the Punjab batters. 33 needed off 16. Shashank Singh brings up his fifty. A brave effort from the player, almost playing in a different sphere altogether. Maiden IPL fifty for the Punjab batter. 16 runs come off this over from Omarzai. Incredibly expensive from the Afghan. Will this cost GT? 

  • April 04, 2024 22:50
    PBKS 159/6 in 17 overs

    Mohit returns for his third over. Punjab needs 47 off 24. He begins with a quicker ball rising up to the batter. It is negotiated for a single by Ashutosh Sharma. Ashutosh then sends the ball high and Umesh Yadav spills a chance by the ropes, as he loses his balance. He tries to find the big shot yet again, but the ball lands safely. No harm, no foul. Six runs come off Mohit’s over. 

  • April 04, 2024 22:44
    PBKS 153/6 in 16 overs

    Rashid to bowl out. Jitesh Sharma now starts to go bonkers. Two back to back sixes. one over long off and one over midwicket. He then sends in a full toss and Jitesh does not middle that properly, holing out to Nalkande at deep midwicket. The keeper-batter is distraught. If he could stay, it would mean security for Punjab’s hopes in this game. Everything rests on Shashank’s shoulders now. 

    The timeout has been taken now. Punjab needs 50 runs in 27 balls.

    Punjab makes its impact substitute. Ashutosh Sharma comes in for Arshdeep Singh. This is the same man who broke Yuvraj Singh’s record for fastest T20 fifty last year. Punjab will want him to channel that energy today. 

    He gets off the mark with a single. Rashid bowls out. 

  • April 04, 2024 22:42
    PBKS 138/5 in 15 overs

    Mohit comes in for his second over. 69 needed off 36 balls for Punjab. Jitesh is on strike. Mohit begins with a ball flying over the batter’s head. Jitesh manages a single through midwicket, bringing Shashank back on strike. Mohit goes slow to the in-form batter. But Shashank will NOT be denied as he sends the ball flying over mid off for four. Nervous faces in the Punjab dugout cannot celebrate. Not just yet. Shashank is now making this look effortless as he smacks the ball to midwicket. Sai Sudarshan does well to field this and save a few runs for his side. Oh, Shashank almost cuts back into his stumps. That inside edge has Mohit tempted, but he is not rewarded. 

  • April 04, 2024 22:36
    PBKS 131/5 in 14 overs

    Rashid returns for his third over. Punjab needs 81 runs in 42 balls.

    Rashid employs his googly and a tossed up offering to draw something from the batters. Omarzai throws himself by the ropes to save two runs for his side. The GT fielding has been top notch but what can you do if the ball goes beyond the fence? That’s what Shashank Singh is doing as he smacks Rashid for SIX, this one slogged over midwicket. 

  • April 04, 2024 22:29
    PBKS 119/5 in 13 overs - Mohit Sharma removes Raza

    Mohit Sharma strikes off the second ball of his over. A back of the hand delivery foxes the allrounder and he edges the ball to the keeper. He goes for a 16-ball 15. Jitesh is the new batter in and is greeted with a bouncer. Some nervy running for this pair follows as they try and find a rhythm to keep Punjab in the hunt. Shashank wants to almost do it singlehandedly, with a ramp shot over the keeper for four. 

  • April 04, 2024 22:27
    PBKS 110/4 in 12 Overs

    Noor Ahmad returns. After a miserly start, Shashank belts Noor through long on for four. He is trying to score in the v before and behind him and has raced away to 25 in just nine balls. 10 runs come off the over. 

    Punjab Kings needs 90 runs in 48 balls.

  • April 04, 2024 22:24
    PBKS 100/4 in 11 overs - Punjab needs 117 runs off 60 balls

    Umesh Yadav returns for his third. Sikander Raza attempts a ramp shot and Noor Ahmad almost took a single handed catch there. But it slips away and runs away for two. Shashank Singh then cuts the ball through the gap past slip for four. Umesh botches his line and Shashank pulls the ball for six over long off. Nice little over this is turning out to be for Punjab Kings. Shashank cuts once more, with the ball running away for four through third man. 17 runs come off the over. Punjab brings up its team 100. 

  • April 04, 2024 22:19
    PBKS 83/4 in (10 Overs)

    Noor to Raza. A double and a dot ball to start the over. Raza sweeps it trough square leg but finds a fielder, just a single. Noor finds the pads of Shashank Singh, umpire says not-out but Gill takes a review!

    The ball was pitching in line but the wickets missing, it stays not-out! The next delivery, Shashank steps out and lofts it straight for a SIX!!!

  • April 04, 2024 22:12
    PBKS 73/4 in (9 Overs)

    Omarzai comes in for his third over. OUT!!! Sam Curran tries to pull it on-side but gives away a simple catch at mid-wicket to Kane Willliamson! Fiver runs and wicket, brilliant over by Omarzai!

  • April 04, 2024 22:09

  • April 04, 2024 22:04
    PBKS 68/3 in 8 Overs

    Noor to Curran. The first delivery spins outside the leg-stump and beats Saha behind, but Williamson stops the ball from running away for a boundary. OUT!!! Prabhsimran walks away as his top-edge gives away a simple catch at gully to Mohit Sharma! Four runs come off of the next three balls. A dot to end the Noor over. 

  • April 04, 2024 22:01

  • April 04, 2024 21:54

  • April 04, 2024 21:53

    Rashid Khan to Bairstow. A quick double to start the over. Another quick single as Punjab chases the big target. Prabhsimran sweeps it on-side but just two off of it after a good slide by Sudharsan on the boundary line. FOUR!!!! Prabhsimran steps away from the wicket and hit it behind square for the boundary. Another sweep but just a dot ball to finish the over.

  • April 04, 2024 21:47
    PBKS 39/1 in 4 Overs

    PBKS 27/1 in 3 Overs

    Omarzai to Bairstow. A full ball that is driven through the covers by the Brit, FOUR runs! A single and a dot follows as Prabhsimran is on strike. The batter steps out and flick it over square leg but just one comes off of it. A iquick single to end the over as Prabhsimran retains the strike.

    Shubman Gill may have missed a century, but he tops the list of highest individual scores this season

    RR vs RCB, IPL 2024: Virat Kohli scores century, tops list of highest individual scores of the season

    Royal Challengers Bengaluru’s Virat Kohli scored the first century of the IPL 2024 in the 19th match of the season against Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur on Saturday.

  • April 04, 2024 21:17
    Kane Williamson reveals David Miller might miss out on action for a week or two

    Nice to be out there after long. Shame to lose Davey for a week or two. Reasonably competitive total. Hope to do well in the second half. (On Gill) What a gifted player. He’s going to keep getting better. 

  • April 04, 2024 21:15
    Shubman Gill scores the highest individual score of the season so far

    Shubman Gill leads from the front, carrying his bat through the innings to take GT to 199. Punjab Kings has a massive task on hand to get 200 to win this game. 

  • April 04, 2024 21:14
    GT 199/4 in 20 overs - PBKS needs 200 to win

    Arshdeep to bowl the final over and he starts with a full toss. It is saved by Brar in the deep. Two runs for GT. Gill then runs a single, with Bairstow doing the needful at long on. Another full toss, this time to Tewatia, is sent straight to the square fielder. Gill is eyeing a century but Arshdeep allows just the single and it gets the GT captain off strike. Arshdeep is a smart cookie, he is bowling to his field and not allowing the duo to try anything audacious just yet. I’ve spoken too soon. Tewatia dispatches Arshdeep through the on side for four. One bounce and past the rope. He tries to replicate the shot and finds the ropes yet again, this time smacking a full toss while going on one knee. 199 is what Gujarat will finish with, all thanks to Tewatia’s smarts. Makes you wonder, why did Vijay Shankar come ahead of him? 

  • April 04, 2024 21:05
    GT 186/4 in 19 Overs

    Harshal will bowl out. Stays low and slow and Gill sweeps for a single. Rahul Tewatia is itching to score and he does, and nonchalantly dispatches a low full toss with a flick to over the fence. Where is the power coming from? So sublime! Looks like Harshal was trying a yorker but it didn’t quite come through. Harshal then gets his line all awry. No ball given. Tewatia then sends the ball to the ropes but a fielder has intercepted it. But it is being reviewed. Did his knee touch the cushion? Nope. Runs saved. Another wide from Harshal. Tewatia then finds the boundary. Walks across a bit to the six stump line and flicks it to the ropes. How he has found and placed the ball in this gap is incredible! Harshal goes a bit high this time. Tewatia reviews for a wide and is given the extra. Sixteen already from this over, making it the most expensive over of the innings. Harshal responds with a wide yorker which makes Tewatia lose balance, but no harm done with a single coming off it. OH and DRAMA off the last ball. HAS GILL BEEN RUN OUT? It looked like Gill was in some trouble here as he wanted to run the third. Reviews show he is safe. 

  • April 04, 2024 20:59
    GT 164/4 in 18 Overs - Rabada removes Vijay Shankar

    Rabada to bowl out and what better way to welcome the South African than this monstrous six! Clobbered over midwicket! Right in the slot too from Rabada. He’s not done. He goes straight this time, with a flat bat, for four. Disdain! Gill is lighting up the night sky here in Ahmedabad. He goes for the same shot, but hasn’t timed it this time and it is intercepted. Vijay Shankar goes boundary hitting too but holes out to Harpreet Brar at long off. Might not be the worst thing for GT now, Vijay Shankar was not middling it all too well. This will allow a pinch hitter time to do their thing. In walks Rahul Tewatia. A couple of singles are run. 13 runs come off this over. Shubman retains strike. 

  • April 04, 2024 20:48
    GT 153/3 in 17 Overs - Shubman fgets physio support for a stiff lower back

    Shubman Gill is on the floor, getting some attention from the physio for his lower back. One can imagine how draining it must be to bat in the heat in Ahmedabad. But GT needs its captain to stay put and see the side through to a good total. Harshal to bowl his third, Vijay Shankar is on strike. He needs to take responsibility here and tries to pull the ball, but it goes off his gloves. Just the single for him and it brings Gill back on strike. Harshal darts in with a yorker. Nicely done, as Gill canters for just a single. Shankar manages a single yet again. Gill then sends the ball over the fence, managing to flatten his bat to get the ball over long on. Brings up the 150 for GT. Gets two off the last ball. Good commitment despite the bodily discomfort. Harshal concedes 12 off this over and looks a bit exasperated at the end of it all. 

  • April 04, 2024 20:47
    GT 141/3 in 16 Overs

    Arshdeep comes in for his third over of the night and Vijay Shankar drives through cover for a single. Gill follows, with a single through midwicket, off a yorker. Arshdeep then sends in a slower bouncer, which goes to deep square leg. Just a single yet again for GT. Sublimg timing from Shubman as he runs two after sending the ball so easily through midwicket. Seven runs come off the over in total. 

  • April 04, 2024 20:41
    GT 134/3 in 15 Overs - Fifty for Shubman Gill

    Harpreet Brar will bowl out and gets off to a conservative start. Brar tries to go into the pads to Vijay Shankar, the batter clips it to the leg side for a single. Gill then gets two through cover. He then swats the ball to the square boundary to bring up his half century. Arshdeep then saves a run for his team as he stops the ball from getting past the ropes at fine leg. 11 runs conceded by Brar as he wraps up for the night. 

  • April 04, 2024 20:32
    GT 123/3 in 14 overs - Harshal removes Sai Sudarshan

    What can Harshal Patel do? Punjab is criminally leaking boundaries here and it will cost them dearly if this continues. 

    Harshal oscillates with length deliveries and has managed to keep things quiet for the timebeing. No width at all. He then sends one tempting Sai Sudarshan to dispatch it for a few runs, but it ends up going to Jitesh behind the stumps, who takes a simple catch. The umpire takes a few seconds to mull over the passage of play and raises his finger. Vijay Shankar is the new batter in. Just four runs and the wicket from this over. Brilliant over from Harshal Patel. 

    The second time-out of the innings is taken. Make sure to grab some refreshments as we wait and see how Gujarat ends its batting innings.

  • April 04, 2024 20:28
    GT 119/2 in 13 Overs

    Rabada in for his third over of the night. Sai Sudarshan steals a single. Shubman Gill then treats Rabada with disdain, smacking this with a straight bat over the bowler’s head for six. So much grace from Gill. A single brings Sai Sudarshan back on strike and he is not to be left behind. He drives Rabada getting some elevation on the ball and sending it through mid-off for four. 14 runs off the Rabada over in total. 

  • April 04, 2024 20:27
    GT 105/2 in 12 overs

    Raza in for his second. Starts with a dot ball, a ball rooting the batter to the crease. Shubman then frees up his arms and sends the ball hurling past the bowler to the boundary. Raza’s legbreak in vain there. The pair then run a single. Sai Sudarshan then gets on his knees and hookes the ball to the boundary. He hits another boundary, this time through midwicket. Nice neat pull this one. Raza was too short and served it to Sai Sudarshan on a platter. He goes a little fuller, allowing the GT batter just the single. Expensive over this from Raza. 14 runs off it,. 

  • April 04, 2024 20:23
    GT 91/2 in 11 overs

    Sam Curran returns for a second over. Curran starts with a length ball but pegs it back with a slow one right after. After another dot, which beats the batter, Sai Sudarshan then manages to send the ball fine to the boundary. Curran concedes eight runs off the over. 

    Sanjay Bangar, the Director of Cricket for Punjab Kings, says the surface is playing well and that the team was expecting bounce to come into play. 

  • April 04, 2024 20:19
    GT 83/2 in (10 Overs)

    Impact sub of the night Sikander Raza to Gill who switches the strike to open the tenth over. Two more singles next as Gill tries to find the boundary through mid-wicket but finds a fielder.

    Simon Katich on the pitch at the Narendra Modi Stadium

    “We are on Pitch No. 6. We were here 4 times last season and in those 4 matches three of them were won by the chasing team. So I expect that to come into play tonight at the toss. This pitch has black and red soil, a mixture of both. It’s rock hard and has 3mm of grass on it so I expect to have good pace and bounce so I expect plenty of runs tonight. GT have won 8 out of 12 games here” 

  • April 04, 2024 18:54
    Pitch report - Boundary dimensions and surface inspection

    Let’s begin with the pitch dimensions: square boundaries are 63 metres each while the fine ones are 55 and 56 metres each. . The long boundary on each side is 68 to 70 metres. There is some grass on the pitch so one can expect to see some pace and bounce. An interesting contest awaits.

    Worrying times for PBKS

    PBKS, which started with a victory over Delhi Capitals, is coming off two dispiriting losses against Royal Challengers Bengaluru and Lucknow Super Giants. It could have had one if it had not frittered away the chance from a commanding position against LSG. Chasing 200, PBKS was 102 for no loss before being blinded by Mayank Yadav’s searing pace.
