PBKS had batted well and posted 214/8 in 20 overs thanks to Sam Curran, Harpreet Singh Bhatia and Jitesh Sharma demolishing the Mumbai Indians bowling after Rohit Sharma had won the toss and chosen to bowl first.
Harpreet Singh Bhatia made 41 in 28 balls with 4 fours and 2 sixes, and the captain Sam Curran made 55 in 29 balls with 4 sixes and 5 fours to his name. However, the most impactful innings came from Jitesh Sharma who hammered 25 runs in 7 balls with 4 sixes to his name, as PBKS made 96 runs in the last 5 overs.

Green was then joined by Suryakumar Yadav who made 67 in 43 balls with 3 sixes and 6 fours and added 75 runs for the third wicket.
MI needed 31 runs from 12 balls and though Tim David hit Nathan Ellis for a 114m six, he conceded only 15 runs. Arshdeep Singh came to bowl the last over with 16 runs to defend.
He bowled beautifully, giving away just 2 runs, but on the 3rd ball of the over, demolished the middle stump of Tilak Varma breaking the carbon fiber stump in the middle. After the ground staff had replaced the stumps, the very next ball, Arshdeep clean bowled Nehal Wadhera and broke the same stump again.
