Shah Rukh Khan was the top scorer for Punjab. Shahrukh departed in the last over after scoring 47 runs. He single-handedly his team from a humiliating score.
It all started for Punjab, with Mayank Agarwal's wicket which led to procession of wickets. CSK made a losing start to their Indian Premier League 2021 campaign and would be hoping to get off the mark when they take on Punjab Kings. On the other hand, KL Rahul-led Punjab Kings narrowly defeated Rajasthan Royals in their last match in IPL 2021. PBKS would look to keep up its winning momentum.
