The game started off with a surprise as Nicholas Pooran was named the captain of LSG while regular skipper KL Rahul was in the XI as Impact Player

Quinton de Kock and Rahul opened the innings for LSG while Sam Curran started off with the ball for PBKS

Rahul smoked Arshdeep Singh for 12 runs in four balls but the latter had the last laugh as he provided PBKS its first breakthrough

Devdutt Padikkal and Marcus Stoinis fell cheaply but Pooran stood firm on the other side and scored a quickfire 21-ball 42 to maintain a healthy run rate

Then came Krunal Pandya, who flourished at the death, scoring 43 runs off just 22 deliveries to take LSG to 199/8

Jonny Bairstow and Shikhar Dhawan started off the chase in fine fashion, taking PBKS to 61/0 in six overs

When the win was well in Punjab’s sights, debutant Mayank Yadav provided three much-needed breakthroughs, starting with Bairstow

When Shikhar Dhawan finally fell, after making a 50-ball 70, PBKS still needed 59 runs to win with just over three overs left

LSG bowlers continued to take the game away from PBKS as the home side went on to win the game by 21 runs
