Initially, a knock of 78 runs off 53 balls by Suryakumar Yadav saw MI post 192/7 in 20 overs. For PBKS' bowling department, Harshal Patel took three wickets.

The defeat sent PBKS to ninth position, ahead of bottom-placed Royal Challengers Bangalore. RR are on top of the table, with 12 points, followed by second-placed Kolkata Knight Riders (8) and Chennai Super Kings (8) in third. SRH are fourth, followed by Lucknow Super Giants (6) in fifth position, Delhi Capitals (6) in sixth. Meanwhile, Gujarat Titan are eighth with six points.

Speaking after the game, Player of the Match Bumrah said, "This was a close game. Much closer than what we thought it would go. Of course you want to make an impact when the ball does something. In this format the ball swings two overs. When I want to bowl more, I play Test cricket. That fulfills my desires.”

“This format is a little difficult for bowlers, with time restrictions and impact player rules. Batting lineup becomes deeper and deeper. But that's not in your control. I do relay the message to the bowlers whenever I can. But you also don't want to deliver too many messages in the heat of the moment,” he further added.
