The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 continues to heat up with a double-header on Day 2, offering cricket fans a thrilling afternoon and evening of action.

Punjab seal last over win

Just six runs needed, and he starts with a wide. Make it two on the trot. But that’s it. Livingstone had enough as he finishes the match with a six. Punjab wins by four wickets.

Khaleel strikes

And when it doesn’t really matter, Khaleel has removed Sam Curran for 63. Just eight needed now. Wait, is there a twist in the tale? Khaleel gets another one, as Shashank Singh is out for a duck. It’s 167/6.

Done deal

And it’s a given now that Delhi can’t win from here. Marsh is hit for 18 runs in the over, including 2 sixes. Just 10 needed from 12 now.

3 overs left

Khaleel isn’t having the best of times here. He strays down the leg side, and gets two fours here. Make that two in a row. Punjab need 28 from 18, as it’s 147/4.

Curran taking Punjab close

Mitch Marsh leaks two fours in one over, and Punjab is moving closer to the total. Delhi need wickets here, soon. PBKS 121/4.

Match poised well

13 overs are up now. But clearly no team is ahead as of now. PBKS need 67 from 42 balls now.

Pant effects stumping

Finally Pant has a dismissal to his name. Jitesh tries to go for a reverse sweep but is stumped. It’s 100/4.

Punjab look strong

But Sumit is hit for two fours in the same over. Punjab, despite losing wickets, are looking strong. PBKS 98/3 in 11 overs.

Debutant Sumit Kumar is here

Looks like Sumit Kumar has a wicket on his very first IPL ball. Jitesh tries to go for a wide ball, but loses balance. Pant is quick to remove bails. But he survives. It’s 87/3.

Kuldeep Strikes

And out of nowhere, Prabhsimran skies one, and is caught in the deep by David Warner. He is out for 26 from 17 balls.

Prabhsimran going well

For now, Prabhsimran and Sam Curran are pairing well as the partnership is 40 already. Punjab moves to 83/2 in 9 overs.

Kuldeep Yadav starts

Not a good start for him here. After four singles, Curran gets a four against Kuldeep. PBKS 75/2 in 8 overs.

Axar into the attack

On his very first ball Axar appeals for an LBW against Prabhsimran. And it’s not out. The batsman danced down the track, and the ball hit his pad. He’s safe though. PBKS 67/2 in 7 overs.

Curran into the act

And now Curran starts with a four in the next Mitch Marsh over. Punjab going well at the moment. Okay, looks like Ishant Sharma has twisted his ankle. And it’s not looking good at the moment.

Khaleel Comes in for a bowl

After leaking 17 runs in his first over, Khaleel comes back well. Oh no, he ends the over with two fours. PBKS 53/2 in 5 overs.

What’s happening

In the same Ishant over, he is hit for two back-to-back fours. And soon after that Jonny Bairstow is run out, after the bowler gets to a finger to a shot played by Prabhsimran. It’s 42/2.

Dhawan bites the dust

Dhawan grows over-ambitious and dances down the track against Ishant Sharma. The ball tails in as the middle-stump is uprooted. It’s 34/1.

Dhawan continues

Another boundary comes at the start of the over and Dhawan is in total control for now. Punjab Kings are going fairly well. It’s 34/0 after 3 overs.

Ishant Sharma into the attack

Ishant doesn’t start well after a boundary is hit and then a few wides. He looks a bit rusty for now. It is 24/0 in 2 overs.

PBKS with solid start

In the very first over Punjab Kings have scored 17 runs. What a start for the team. Punjab 17/0 after 1 over.

Porel’s last over onslaught powers DC to 173/8

DC’s Impact player Porel went all guns blazing in the last over, scoring 25 runs.

Shai Hope departs

Hope gives one straight into the hands of Brar. He is out for 33 from 25 balls. DC losing momentum here as the score moves to 94/3.

Can Pant get a biggie?

Chahar continues. And Rishabh would be itching to get a few runs under his belt. In the meantime, Hope gets another four. Pant nearly gets out. He dances down the track, misses the ball completely. But the ball stay there, he’s safe. After 10 overs DC 85/2.

PANT comes into bat

Pant is off the mark just on his second delivery. What’s in store for us here? And it needs to be said that he’s looking confident, dancing down the track and stealing singles. Another over comes to an end and it’s 79/2 after 9 overs.

Another change in bowling

Harshal Patel starts with a bad one. David Warner cracks one through point for a four. DC is doing well at the moment, and looking set for a big total. A decent over in the end for PBKS. And wait, looks like we have a wicket here. Warner tries to pull a short one, but misses it. He’s out for 29. DC 74/2 in 8 overs.

Time for Rahul Chahar

And on the other end, it’s leg spinner Chahar. Looks like it will be a little difficult for the batsmen, against spinners on this pitch. Finally Shai breaks the shackles and smashes a six. That is followed by a boundary. 14 runs come from the over as DC 68/1 after 7 overs.

Spinner into the attack

Harpreet Brar comes into the attack. And he starts well with two dots. Shai Hope is struggling to get going at the moment. Warner facing the heat due to his partner. The over comes to an end as DC 54/1 after 6 overs.
