However, things didn't go well for Hardik Pandya's army this time, as they scored an average total of 143 runs on the board. Sai Sudharsan was the lone warrior for Gujarat Titans who scored an unbeaten 65 off 50 balls.
Now, Punjab Kings had to chase down the target posted by the opposition in the allotted time. The Punjab side looked different against the opposition and they went on to chase down the total in just 16 overs with 8 wickets in hand.
With that win, Punjab Kings moved to the 5th spot on the points table and will be gearing up for the upcoming encounter against Rajasthan Royals.
Finally, we got the win: Kagiso Rabada
After winning the game, Kagiso Rabada who has scalped 4 wickets has been named Man of the Match. "Finally we got the win. After being a bit inconsistent, we just wanted to string a couple of wins under our belt.
We bowled well to restrict them. Our batters did the job. As a team, we had a good outing. You can't get too greedy, you need to stick to your basics, that's what I tried to do," Kagiso Rabada was quoted as saying in the post-match presentation.
"He's (Arshdeep Singh) got a lot of nerve, he has shown that, especially in the death overs. He reads the game well, he's able to execute his skill and he's done it game in game out.
He knows what he wants to work on, I am not saying too much to him. As a bowler, you have to bowl in all stages of the game. It's about figuring out how to be the most effective in each stage of the game," he added.
However, Liam Livingstone looked in phenomenal touch with the willow in this game, as he smashed a 117 meter six off Mohammed Shami's first ball of the 16th over.
