Everyone in team had belief that we can chase record T20 target: Prabhsimran Singh

The record-breaking chase by Punjab Kings will be forever etched in the history books. It was a victory fueled by a combination of team spirit, fearless batting, and the belief that no target is insurmountable.

The Punjab Kings (PBKS) etched their names in cricket history by chasing down a mammoth 262-run target set by the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) – the highest successful run chase in T20 cricket and IPL. This incredible feat went beyond statistics; it was a testament to unwavering team spirit and power-packed batting.

Dramatic PBKS start ignites Hope

Chasing such a lofty score might have seemed daunting initially. However, young gun Prabhsimran Singh, playing as the Impact Player, provided the perfect spark. His aggressive knock of 54 runs off just 20 balls injected life into the innings and instilled belief within the team.

Team Belief & Positive Coaching: Prabhsimran Singh

“Everyone in the team had the belief that we could chase the target,” revealed Prabhsimran Singh in the post-match press conference. He credited senior players like Shikhar Dhawan and coaches like Sanjay Bhangar for keeping the team motivated even after facing close defeats earlier in the season.

“They continued to motivate us,” Prabhsimran said, “And they know that if our team will bat, we will win.” This unwavering team belief, coupled with positive coaching guidance, proved to be a crucial factor in the record-breaking chase.

Dominant Batting Seals Deal: KKR vs PBKS

While Prabhsimran Singh provided the early impetus, it was Shashank Singh’s unbeaten knock of 68 runs off just 28 balls that truly sealed the deal for Punjab.

Jonny Bairstow’s magnificent century also played a pivotal role in the chase. The Eden Gardens pitch, devoid of dew for once, offered excellent batting conditions, which the PBKS batsmen capitalized on beautifully.

“”He is a world class player and everyone knows about his ability. We all went with clear thought and there was also not any dew that came and it was also the batting wicket. So it helped us in chasing,” said Prabhsimran Singh, commending Jonny Bairstow’s match-winning knock. The absence of dew and a good batting surface played a vital role in PBKS’s successful chase, allowing them to play their aggressive brand of cricket with confidence.

The record-breaking chase by Punjab Kings will be forever etched in the history books. It was a victory fueled by a combination of team spirit, fearless batting, and the belief that no target is insurmountable.
