LSG vs PBKS, IPL 2023 Highlights: Punjab King were handed a blow even before the match with captain and batting talisman Shikhar Dhawan sustaining a shoulder injury and having to sit out. All rounder Sam Curran is leading the team in his stead and he chose to bowl first after winning the toss. While they did a good job under him with the ball, it has hardly been smooth sailing form them with the bat. After restricting LSG to 159/8, PBKS lost three wickets in the powerplay, including that of the big hitting Matthew Short. Sikandar Raza has since anchored the chase but they were struggling to keep their wickets together.

Two tight doubles off the first two balls and then Shahrukh crashes one to the long on boundary to win the game with a four. That chase was anchored by Raza and finished by Shahrukh. LSG will feel that they were at least 15 runs short of what would be par on this pitch, lots of eyes on Rahul's strike rate once again, but this has been an expert showing from PBKS against a relentless LSG bowling attack.
