It all started with Mohammed Shami getting rid of the well-set Rishabh Pant, when the wicketkeeper-batsman went for an expansive slog and lost his wicket.

  • 16.5 – Mohammed Shami to Chris Morris. out, OUT! Morris is run out, not even in the frame! Punjab can still believe. A pitched up ball outside off has been sweetly driven to wide mid off. Morris attempts for a run but before he can reach the other end Ravichandran Ashwin has scored a direct hit at the bowler’s end. The umpire takes no chance and goes upstairs. Morris has to go, no other option.
  • 16.6 – Mohammed Shami to Colin Ingram. no run, Play and a miss! Angling across the batsman, Colin throws his bat at it and it goes under it to the keeper. Rahul fumbles but no run taken. 7 runs and a couple of wickets in the over, if Punjab win this match, that’s a big if still…but if they pull it off, this over will have a great say in that.
