    KKR vs PBKS Live Score: PUNJAB KINGS WIN BY 5 WICKETS

    PBKS have done it. They have closed out a close game and kudos to the young Shahrukh Khan, who starred with a 9-ball 22.

    With this win, Punjab have climbed back to 5th, pushing MI to 6th, while KKR remain 4th. All three points have 10 points but the order is currently based on their net run-rates.

  • Oct 01, 2021 11:28 PM IST

    5 needed from 6 but with PBKS, you never know…

    5 needed from 6 but we know what happened with PBKS vs RR. With 8 wickets in hand, they need 4 and they still lost by 2 runs. 

    Venkatesh Iyer to bowl the final over.

    19.1 1 RUN- 4 NEEDED FROM 5

    19.2 OUT! KL Rahul holes out to Shivam Mavi. This time, KL Rahul is gone. This time, it's a clear catch. 4 needed from 4.

    19.3 SIX! AND THAT'S THE GAME. SHAHRUKH KHAN FINISHES IT WITH  A SIX OVER LONG ON AS TRIPATHI FUMBLES AND THE BALL FALLS OVER THE BOUNDARY CUSHION.

    KKR vs PBKS Live Match: 19th over

    18.1 FOUR! KL Rahul hits a boundary and look at the PBKS dugout. A juicy full toss from Mavi, who misses his yorker and the ball races off the outside edge and past the short third man for four. 11 needed from 11

    18.2 NO RUN! DOT! A slower-ball full toss that Rahul missed. 11 needed from 10.

    18.3 IS THAT OUT? Has Tripathi held on? Rahul swivels the mid-wicket pull directly to Tripathi, who dives forward. Initially, he looks out. And the replay shows IT'S BOUNCED JUST IN FRONT OF TRIPATHI. We can't confirm that yet but KL Rahul might have survived here. The super-zoomer is here. Are the fingers under the ball? The TV umpire is trying more angles and taking it frame by frame. THE TV UMPIRE SAYS THE BALL AS HIT THE GROUND! KL RAHUL SURVIVES

    KL RAHUL IS NOT OUT! Big, big decision.

    SO, it's a dot ball. 11 needed from 9

    18.4 Rahul picks a single. 10 needed from 8 

    18.5 1 run Shahrukh Khan picks one run from long on. 9 needed from 7

    18.6 4 RUNS! High full toss, misses the yorker and allows KL Rahul to guide the ball behind point for four. 5 needed from 6

    But it is not as straightforward as it looks. So, Mavi is pulled over unconvincingly to deep backward square leg where V Iyer grabs it with one hand and tries to push it back in before going over the ropes but he fails to do so. A valiant effort.

    “Yes, all fitness issues are resolved. Just had a stiff neck in the last game, so I had to miss out. We all know Gayle is a big player, big presence but we respect the decision he's taken and back him 100 percent. A lot of credit should go to them (bowlers), the way they have stood up and performed for us, they have really worked hard and it is paying off. Credit to them for the effort they put in and the courage they show in executing their skills. The situation we are in, we have to fight and fight hard, just talking in the dressing room will not help but we have to go out in the middle and execute. That's what I think we need to do, we need to find ways (to win), play hard and keep fighting.”

    "It's the same surface that we played two nights ago and it looks magnificent. The ground staff have done a terrific job, nice grass covering and the surface is very hard. Three times the team batting first have won, three times the team bowling first has won. The average score is 159, there are no demons and the batters can trust this surface. From a bowling point of view, you have to get your length right"

    "My life has been the same since the IPL, we are Punjabis and enjoy life. I am enjoying the opportunities and the challenges that I am faced with. It would have been nicer had the results been in our favour. We are just not able to finish games. We play well for 30-35 overs but we haven't been able to kill games. We aren't discussing the qualification, and are taking it one match at a time by giving our 100%. The West Indian culture is also similar to the Punjabi culture, and they also enjoy life, which is why the bubble life hasn't been boring.

Hopefully, we will continue playing in this way and win more games. My batting has been good, but I need to convert the starts into bigger knocks. but it does happen in T20s. At the moment I'm happy with the way I'm batting. We are giving good starts for the team at the top of the order. We got a lot of confidence after getting a team like RCB all-out for a small score and then the way we chased it down. I think we're doing well in all the three departments of the game."
