PBKS vs GT 17th Match IPL 2024 Highlights

Watch cricket video highlights between Punjab Kings vs Gujarat Titans. Indian Premier League 2024 seventeenth match, played at Ahmedabad.

Even in the 17th over of the chase, Punjab Kings had just a 9% chance of winning. That, too, was a consequence of Shashank Singh’s presence on the scene, barely fifty percent. After purchasing him at the auction the previous year, his own team attempted to get rid of this individual practically right away. In an attempt to put an end to the circulating rumors, the player responded to a clarifying tweet that the franchise finally sent out. Against overwhelming odds, Kings and their acquisition performed well tonight.

Of the 29 balls he faced, 10 were smashed to the boundary by Shashank. He was dragging along IPL winners from the past. Mohit Sharma rampaged over the keeper even as he attempted to speed off and into the wicket; Rashid Khan blasted over midwicket; Umesh Yadav assisted over fine leg; and Noor Ahmad skewered over long-off. Because they originated from a location where winning was only a dream, these shots were incredible.

In a bowling first XI, Kings had five substitutions, but only two bats. It appeared to be an uneven choice. However, a major factor in their success was the man they selected to be the Impact Sub. Playing in his first match of the season and just his 15th Twenty20 match overall, Ashutosh Sharma stared a formula that read 41 off 18 balls straight in the eye and smashed it with devastating accuracy. In Azmatullah Omarzai’s eighteenth over, he hit three fours. Mohit added six more to begin the nineteenth. 34 runs were scored by the Kings in those 12 balls. The Kings’ odds of winning increased from 9.23% to 94.56% in those 12 balls.

When two players search for their best boundary choice with each ball, this is what occurs. But it was amazing that even against bowlers of the caliber of the Titans, they were producing quality runs despite not having been given caps and having very little experience at this level of the game (Shashank has played 13 IPL matches, but he has only batted in eight of those with a high score of 25).

Not only were they waiting to slog ’em past the line, but they also waited for Mohit and Azmatullah’s variations, whether they were slower balls or short balls. Both Ashutosh (in the dying moments) and Shashank (before) blasted fours over the goalie. It lacked nerve. It was magnificent. And by the conclusion, Kings had achieved their sixth goal of 200 or more, setting a record for men’s T20.

Even though there have only been four games, Rashid Khan’s economy rate of 9.06 is the lowest it has been this IPL season. Jitesh Sharma set him up twice throughout this game, and in the 16th over, he leaked back-to-back sixes. In the IPL 2024, he has already been hit out of the park nine times. That’s the total number of sixes he had conceded in 16 games in 2020 and 14 games in 2021. Because Mohammed Shami isn’t on the powerplay and the death, Titans are looking to him a little more frequently now, but it appears like he can’t handle the added burden.

At 70 for 4 in the ninth over and 111 for 5 in the 13th over, the Titans were tightening the screws on the Kings. Liam Livingstone sustained wounds. Sam Curran, Jonny Bairstow, and Shikhar Dhawan were not in the game. There was just Jitesh and a few unknowns. This match was not completed when it should have been.

Six is the total amount of boundary attempts from a combined 35 balls faced by Wriddhiman Saha and Kane Williamson. With David Miller missing due to injury, the Titans had a top-heavy lineup. Their greatest batter is immediately put under strain, and Gill may have broken if the man hadn’t come out at No. 4 and fanned everything that came his way. In his 19 balls faced, Sai Sudharsan attempted to hit a boundary with 12 of them. He and Gill shared a 53-run partnership that reset the score, with him scoring 33 off 19 vs Gill’s 20 off 13.

Gill saw ten balls on the powerplay. He had only been on strike for 19 deliveries, even after 10 overs. Although he appeared flawless, he was not given any chances to affect the outcome of the match. Outside pressure may have forced him to return to the hut after taking a risk too quickly, but Sudharsan’s innings allowed him to bat at his own pace, which could only cause problems for the opposition.

In T20 cricket, Gill achieved his greatest score while batting well within himself. Even his most spectacular hit of the inning resulted from his awareness of a length ball and his ability to go beneath it. Kagiso Rabada was hit for an easy six straight down the ground, solidifying his status as IPL royalty with a strike rate of 14.8—the highest of any players with at least 100 wickets in the competition. Gill was just reacting to what was presented to him, and nine times out of ten, he had the ideal response. To put it simply, he was hitting at 185.42 and combining it with a 91.67 control %. That is not common. In general, aiming for large results usually results in a few more misses. Still, it must seem like scant comfort on a night when he witnessed his side lose from a winning position.
