Player of the Match

Mohit Sharma, Player of the Match: I have had a good time at this venue. I thought of sticking to my variations, had a chat with Hardik in the middle overs, luckily it paid off. You need to train hard, give your 100 percent. Need to bowl according to the situation, and stick to the basics. I was given a role to bowl after 10 overs. Credit goes to the coach who has defined everyone's role in the team.

GT Captain

Hardik Pandya, GT captain: To be very honest I would not appreciate for the game to go this deep. We need to go back to the drawing board. They bowled really well. Luckily all our batters are in good nick. We should take risks and play shots in the middle overs, need to make sure the game doesn't go so deep. The ball was getting dried up, but the wicket was a belter. Wasn't surprised when Mohit and Alzarri were bowling. He has done a lot of hard work, he has shown patience and his time has come. It would have been a tough pill to swallow if the game had gone the other side. I would like to finish the game earlier, not a big fan of taking it to the last over.

PBKS Captain

Shikhar Dhawan, PBKS captain: Agree with you on that thing. We did not put many runs on the board. We have to rectify that thing going forward. Absolutely - if you see the number of dot balls, if a team plays 56 balls, you end up losing the game. Losing early wickets puts you on the back foot and we need to work on that. Very proud of the bowlers, it was not a big total and taking the game till the end was tremendous. He came for practice yesterday, he pulled his muscle and another 2-3 days, he should be good to go [on Liam Livingstone's fitness].

Hard luck for PBKS

GT were cruising to victory at one point but the bowlers pulled it back for PBKS in the final overs. With 7 to defend in 6 balls, Sam Curran was magnificent untill the 5th ball when Tewatia did his magic to get his side over the line!

Tewatia keeps his cool

A brilliant effort from Sam Curran goes in vain as Rahul Tewatia scoops the 5th ball for four and its a win for GT by 6 wickets over PBKS!

Match slipping away

Boundary off the bat of Miller to end the 18th. GT needs just 13 runs off 12 balls and the match is going out of PBKS' reach.

21:40 (IST)13 APR 2023

Tactics for PBKS

Kagiso Rabada has had a terrific record against Shubman Gill. He'll surely be seen opening the bowling for PBKS and if he gets a few early wickets, we have a game on!

21:39 (IST)13 APR 2023

Below-par

This has been a below-par performance from PBKS and this score doesn't do justice to the fine batting pitch in Mohali. It'll be difficult to contain the GT players but the Kings do have the bowling to take things close. We have an exciting chase to follow!

21:28 (IST)13 APR 2023

21:00 (IST)13 APR 2023

20:46 (IST)13 APR 2023

Struggling to accelerate

Just 3 off that one and a wicket for Mohit Sharma too. PBKS is 94-4 after 13 overs. They've been unable to score efficiently post the dismissal of Short and they really need to get going now.

20:42 (IST)13 APR 2023

Review helps GT

20:32 (IST)13 APR 2023

Rajapaksa opens up

First boundary for Rajapaksa as he pulls the slower one over the short-fine leg region. This will surely boost his confidence. PBKS is 81-3 after 11 overs.

20:26 (IST)13 APR 2023

Halfway there

10 overs done, PBKS is 75-3 with Jitesh and Rajapaksa in the middle.

8 off the 9th

Two boundaries off the bat of Jitesh gets  PBKS 8 runs in the over. PBKS is 71-3 after 9.

20:18 (IST)13 APR 2023

Cheeky

Quicker one from Rashid and Jitesh uses it to good effect. He scoops the ball behind Saha to earn four runs for his side! 

20:15 (IST)13 APR 2023

Jitesh walks in

Jitesh Sharma has been sent to bat next for PBKS. They really need him to stick with Rajapaksa and form a partnership here.
