Yash Thakur provided a crucial breakthrough by dismissing Jitesh Sharma of PBKS, who was looking to take the game away from the opposition.
Jitesh Sharma had started off brilliantly, scoring quick runs and hitting three towering sixes. He was looking to build on his strong start when Yash Thakur bowled a low full toss from round the wicket. Sharma went for the big hit but mistimed it, resulting in a catch to Rahul at mid-off.
Yash Thakur had put in an excellent performance with the ball till that point and the wicket of Jitesh Sharma gave LSG a much-needed boost. Sharma’s quickfire knock of 24 runs off just 10 balls had given Punjab Kings a great start but his wicket allowed LSG to claw their way back into the game.
