Panjam team made a huge score in the ongoing match against Rajasthan Royals as part of the 16th season of IPL. Punjab Kings captain Shikhar Dhawan scored an unbeaten 86 as the team scored 197 for the loss of 4 wickets. In this sequence, Prabhsimran Singh and Shikhar Dhawan gave a good start to the team with half centuries on behalf of Punjab. On the other hand, Jason Holder took 2 wickets, R Ashwin and Yajuvendra Chahal each took 2 wickets for Rajasthan. Dhawan-led Punjab Kings started their batting innings as Rajasthan won the first toss and chose to bowl. Punjab opener Prabhsimran Singh (60 runs off 34 balls; 7 fours, 3 sixes) exploded with sixes and fours. Along with him, Shikhar Dhawan (86 not out in 56 balls; fours, sixes) also performed brilliantly and led the team towards a huge score.
But Jason Holder separated the duo who played aggressively and put on a partnership of 90 runs. Simran Singh, who played the fourth ball of the 10th over bowler, gave a catch to Joss Buttler and went to the pavilion. Bhanuka Rajapaksa, who came later, turned away from the field as a retired heart. With this, Jitesh Sharma came into the crease and showed enough aggression for himself. On the other hand, Dhawan also sent the ball towards the boundary whenever he got a chance. Dhawan also completed his half century in this order.
But Yajuvendra Chahal put brakes on Jitesh Sharma’s aggressive play. Jitesh Chahal, who scored 27 runs, got out in the 16th over after giving a catch to Ryan Parag. Ravi Ashwin clean bowled Sikandar Raza in the next over. Shikhar Dhawan along with Shah Rukh Khan and Sam Curran were brilliant and Punjab scored a huge score of 197 for the loss of 4 wickets.
