With eight wickets in hand, four runs are required in the last over. In Dubai, the Punjab Kings were unable to replicate that equation. Punjab lost two wickets in the last over, which was bowled by pacer Karthik Tyagi and managed only one run. Mostafizur Rahman’s Rajasthan Royals won the thrilling match by two runs.
At the start of the final over, Aiden Markram and Nicholas Puran were on the wicket. Aiden Markram had a batting at 25 off 18 balls and Nicholas Puran at 32 off 21 balls. Tyagi was unable to respond to the two batters. No further runs were scored after Markram altered the edge with one run in the second ball. In the third ball, Nicholas Puran caught the wicketkeeper. Deepak Huda has been knocked out in the fifth ball. Fabian Allen fails to bowl after scoring three runs on one ball. Tiagi, who gave up one run in the penultimate over, finished with 29 runs in four overs.
Rajasthan was all out for 185 on the final delivery of the 20th over while batting first. In 11.5 overs, Lokesh Rahul (49) and Mayank Agarwal (8) scored 120 runs. The squad began the final over with 182 runs for two wickets. Aiden Markram and Nicholas Puran, on the other hand, were unable to match the equation.
With 30 runs in four overs, Bangladesh’s left-arm bowler Mostafiz failed to get a wicket. However, the Rajasthan fielders missed two catches to Mostafiz.
The total may have been higher if Mostafiz’s team hadn’t lost 6 wickets for just 21 runs in the last 4 overs. Arshdeep Singh of Punjab got 5 wickets for 32 runs.
Rajasthan got off to a flying start thanks to 54 runs from Evin Lewis and Yashambi Jaiswal in the opening. Lewis scored 56 runs in his first six overs. Despite the fact that skipper Sanju Samson returned for four runs, Liam Livingstone’s third-wicket stand with Jaiswal reached 46 off 26 balls. Jaiswal scored 49 runs from 36 balls. Mahipal Lomro then scored 43 runs in 16 balls. With Ryan Parag, they contributed 30 runs off 13 balls after hitting 20 off 15 balls with Livingstone. Rajasthan lost their path when Lomro was removed by Arshdeep on the first ball of the 17th over.
