The Punjab Kings bury Royal Challengers Bengaluru in plenty of runs as they keep their playoff hopes alive in 2022 with 54 wins and a half-century of excellence from Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone on Performance. Bairstow (29 overs, 66 overs) and Livingstone (42 overs, 70 overs) pushed the Punjab Kings to 209 on 9 for 209 in a must-win game, and the scoreboard always speaks for itself, Because RCB is limited to 155 on 9 shooting in 20 games.

While Punjab still have 12 points in as many games, their net rating has improved significantly to 0.210, while RCB is -0.323 despite having 14 points in 13 games.

RCB will have to win their final game and raise the points to 16, but will now need some friction on the greens and some favorable results.

It was another day and another defeat for Virat Kohli (20), whose glove had a weak edge itching before hitting his thigh pad, and swept away from Kagiso Rabada (4-0-21-3). ) delivery.

Rabada was barely able to play on the day, as he had pace and a desirable full length for most of his time.

Rishi Dhawan (4-0-36-2), perhaps the weakest link in the Punjab attack, then made up for his lack of speed by hitting the perfect length as Faf du beat Jitesh with a ball behind the stump Sharma, while Mahipal Lomror’s rough shot was filmed by Shikhar Dhawan.

Patidar (26) and Glenn Maxwell (35) did add 64 points, but they never played and both left.

The RCB was soon to fail when Karthik (11) was knocked out by the brilliant Arshdeep Singh (4-0-27-1) with a wide Yorkie and a short third catcher.

Earlier, Bairstow’s opening blitz found the opponent in Livingstone’s closing carnage.

While Bairstow set the stage with 29 overs 66 overs, Livingstone was equally in his 42 overs 70 overs as the RCB bowlers had a day they wanted to forget in a hurry.

Rusted in the early stages of the game, Bairstow restored his element with as many as seven sixes and four boundaries in one knock, and he really went to hell for the leather.

Such was his dominance that when Powerplay’s six ended, Bairstow had hit seven towering sixes, while Shikhar Dhawan (21 of 15 balls) sprinkled the wound with another ball I took the salt for a total of eight points.

The Punjab Kings set the template for Powerplay’s start with 83 runs in 6 rounds, Glenn Maxwell (1/17 in 2 rounds), Josh Hazlewood (0/64 in 4 rounds) and Mohammed Siraj ( 2 rounds 0/36) ) was totally despised.

While Maxwell did manage to get Dhawan, both Hazlewood and Siraj were guilty of undershooting on pitches that provided real rebound. Bairstow had no trouble pulling them into the stands, and then as deliveries mounted, they landed in the stands too. The boundary is only 66m on one side, which is a dream for any power hitter.

Siraj had a memorable first spell as he hit four sixes while Hazlewood hit 22 in his first possession. The Australian’s stats are his worst ever.

However, after the Powerplay, RCB held back the run with some tight wicket-to-wicket bowling once Wanindu Hasaranga (2/15 over 4) and Shahbaz Ahmed (1/40 over 4) came into action.

Bengal left-arm spinner Shahbaz was rewarded for his tight lines as Bairstow ultimately missed the moment and Siraj did well to bag the skier.

After scoring 83 points in the first six games, the score dropped sharply as there were 22 points scored between the 7th and 10th rounds.

Both Hasaranga and Shahbaz played wide out of the stump, not allowing Livingstone and Agarwal to rush the track.


Nonetheless, the Briton scored a couple of sixes and a reverse to continue his good form in the game, before hitting a 4/34 at Harshal Patel. 4 rounds) he made his way to the stands when he performed well at the time of death.

He hit 35 for 50 and when he was out, he made 4 of 14 sixes in the Punjab innings.
