Punjab Kings produced an all-round performance to clip Gujarat Titans wings in match 48 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at DY Patil Stadium, Pune on Tuesday. Hardik Pandya won the toss and opted to bat first, probably to shake up Gujarat Titans' comfort zone, and they got a thrashing. Shaken for sure!

ReportScorecard | IPL Points Table | Full Schedule

The top order failed to take off, and except for Sai Sudharsan (65 not out off 50), none managed to mount a serious challenge against a disciplined Punjab bowling attack. Kagiso Rabaga once again brought his international pedigree, taking four wickets.

But Titans' international stars, mainly Rashid Khan and Lockie Lockie Ferguson, failed as Shikhar Dhawan (62 not out off 53) dropped anchor. The opener was involved in an 87-run stand for the second wicket with Bhanuka Rajapaksa (40 off 28), then arrived Liam Livingstone. The big-hitting Englishman hit Mohammed Shami for 28 runs in the 16th over, including a monster 117m six, to seal a big win.

The win helped Mayank Agarwal's Punjab Kings jump to fifth place in IPL 2022 points table with four wins from 10. Gujarat Titans still lead the pack with eight wins from their ten. Catch highlights and cricket scores of GT vs PBKS.

  • 03 May 2022 / 11:07 PM


    Mohammed Shami returns for his final over. And what. Liam Livingstone dismisses the first ball for a six, a monster six. 117 metres, over deep square leg. One of the biggest you will see, ever. And one more. Full toss, and this time 96m, over mid wicket. One more. Top edge, and over the wicketkeeeper. 69m only. One four to slow things down, behind square. A couple to mid wicket. Well, one more six. Outside edge and over third man. No, four given. But that's it. 28 from the over. Livingstone unbeaten on 30 off 10. Punjab Kings win by eight wickets with four overs to spare. PBKS - 145/2 (16); GT - 143/8 (20)

  • 03 May 2022 / 10:57 PM

    0/21 For Rashid

    Rashid Khan on with his final over. A dot, then three singles. Shout for a caught behind off the fourth. And another one, this time for LBW against Liam Livingstone. Not given. Hardik Pandya goes for the review. Pitching outside, and bouncing over the leg stump. Four from the over. 0/21 for Rashid Khan. Punjab need 27 runs in 30 balls. PBKS - 117/2 (15).

    Time Out!

  • 03 May 2022 / 10:53 PM


    Lockie Ferguson on with his third over. A dot, then Shikhar Dhawan cuts the second ball hard, and nice work from Sai Kishore to restrict it to a couple. But third umpire takes a lifetime to confirm it. A wide, down leg. One more wide, this time for height and it goes five. Poor, Wriddiman Saha. Three dots, and a single to end the nine-run over. Punjab need 31 in 36. PBKS - 113/2 (14)

  • 03 May 2022 / 10:46 PM

    Lot Of Edges

    Liam Livingstone is the new man, ahead of skipper Mayank Agarwal. Net run rate in mind? Rashid Khan returns for his third over. Googly and Shikhar Dhawan gets an outside edge. No slip, and four. Two dots and an inside edge, a single to backward square leg. Now slip in place for Livingstone. A single, and another single as Dhawan again gets outside egde. Seven from the over. Punjab need 40 runs in 42 balls. PBKS - 104/2 (12)

  • 03 May 2022 / 10:41 PM

    Rajapaksa Goes

    Lockie Ferguson returns for his second over. Singles off the first two, and Shikhar Dhawan times his straight drive beautifully for a four, past mid off. Fifty in 38 balls (seven fours and one six). One leg bye, and Bhanuka Rajapaksa guides the fifth ball for a six over fine leg. He's only backing away and the balls follows him. Just enough bat. And LBW. No review taken. Rajapaksa goes for 40 off 28. In line but... With that a 87-run stand in 59 balls is broken. Punjab need 47 in 48. PBKS - 97/2 (12)

  • 03 May 2022 / 10:35 PM

    74-run Stand

    Alzarri Joseph continues. He's cracking up the speed. A front foot no ball off the fourth. Shikhar Dhawan happy to nudge the free hit, to deep mid wicket for a single.

  • 03 May 2022 / 10:21 PM

    Rashid On

    Bowling change. Rashid Khan on. A dot to Bhanuka Rajapaksa, then four singles and Punjab Kings rotate the strike. And a beauty to beat the Sri Lankan batter. Rajapaksa looks to play a cut shot, but a googly comes rolling. Four from the over. Punjab need 82 runs in 72 balls. PBKS - 62/1 (8)

  • 03 May 2022 / 10:14 PM

    Sangwan Sprays

    Pradeep Sangwan returns for his second over. Bhanuka Rajapaksa lofts the first ball for a four over mid-on. Classy. And another, this time over the bowler's head. Easy. A single. Poor length and line from Sangwan, and Shikhar Dhawan guides the fourth ball for a four, to third man. A full toss and Dhawan fails to capitalise on it. Only a a single, to mid on. A single to end the 15-run over. Punjab Kings need 86 in 78. PBKS - 58/1 (7).

    Time Out!

  • 03 May 2022 / 10:08 PM

Dhawan pounces on it, four... through the line. Majestic follow through. A dot, and a couple to backward point. Nice effort from Gurkeerat to stop the ball. Eight from the over. PBKS - 43/1 (6)

  • 03 May 2022 / 10:03 PM

    Real Battle
