PBKS had a steady start to their innings as their openers KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal shared the first wicket partnership of 53 runs and after the dismissal of Mayank Agarwal, the skipper ensured that he and Chris Gayle took their team home as winners. While Rahul remained unbeaten at 60, Chris Gayle scored 43 not out and achieved the target with 14 balls remaining.
