Blistering half-centuries by Liam Livingstone and Jonny Bairstow earned Punjab Kings a crucial 54-run win over Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League on Friday. Virat Kohli’s long run of poor batting form in the IPL continued when he fell for 20 and Bangalore limped to 155-9 after Punjab made a formidable 209-9. Kohli has only 236 runs with one half-century in 12 games this season. The big win lifted Punjab to sixth and still in the race for a top-four place in the playoffs with two league games to go. Bangalore barely hung to fourth place after its fourth loss in six games.

Here is how the IPL Points table looks like after PBKS's win:

Punjab Kings' 54-run win over Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Brabourne Stadium on Saturday took them to within two points of fourth place. RCB themselves are the team placed fourth with 14 points but their net run rate of -0.323 is now lesser than that of both Delhi Capitals and PBKS below them. PBKS are sixth behind DC because of their net run rate of 0.023 is lesser than that of Rishabh Pant's side's 0.210.

Purple Cap:

Kagiso Rabada remains third, having taken three wickets on Friday and taken his tally to 21. Harshal Patel has stormed into the top five. He toom four wickets against PBKS which took his tally to 18 wickets. His better economy puts him above fifth-placed Delhi Capitals spinner Kuldeep Yadav, who has also taken 18 wickets.
