IPL 2024: [WATCH] PBKS’ Arshdeep Singh Bowls SRH’s Travis Head For A Golden Duck

In the IPL 2024 clash between Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), PBKS’ seamer Arshdeep Singh made an immediate impact by dismissing SRH opener Travis Head for a golden duck with a brilliant delivery. This crucial breakthrough at the start of the second innings set the tone for Punjab’s defence of their imposing 215-run total.

Arshdeep Singh bowled Travis Head with his first delivery, sending the off-stump cartwheeling. Head departed for a golden duck (0 off 1 ball). Rahul Tripathi came in at number 3 and immediately made an impact with a drive through the covers for four. He followed it up by lofting a wide delivery over a short third for another boundary. An LBW appeal followed, but the ball was drifting down the leg side.


In SRH’s chase, Abhishek Sharma and Rahul Tripathi formed a solid partnership for the second wicket, putting up 72 runs together. This partnership was vital for SRH’s hopes of chasing down the large total. However, Harshal Patel managed to break this partnership by dismissing Tripathi for 33 runs.

Abhishek Sharma continued to anchor the innings, reaching his half-century and guiding SRH past the 100-run mark by the ninth over, showing resilience and skill in their pursuit of the target. Arshdeep’s precise and skilful bowling rattled the Australian opener’s stumps, forcing Head back to the pavilion without scoring.

The foundation for Punjab’s impressive total was laid by opener Prabhsimran Singh, who played a stellar knock of 71 runs. His innings were cut short by Vijayakanth Viyaskanth, but not before he provided a strong start for PBKS. Atharv Taide offered valuable support with his 46-run contribution, which was eventually halted by T Natarajan.

The middle order saw contributions from South African Rilee Rossouw, who scored 49 runs before being dismissed by Pat Cummins, demonstrating a balanced and robust batting performance. Despite a brief stint, Shashank Singh was run out for just 2 runs, which brought some tension to the innings. However, Jitesh Sharma’s aggressive batting at the end of the innings was crucial.

His unbeaten 32 runs off just 15 deliveries ensured that Punjab Kings crossed the 200-run mark, finishing their innings on a high note and setting a challenging target for Sunrisers Hyderabad. While Punjab Kings were playing primarily for pride, having been eliminated from the playoff race, SRH had already secured their place in the playoffs. This context added an interesting dynamic to the match, with Punjab aiming to end their season on a positive note.
