Mayank Agarwal, the captain of Punjab Kings, praised Liam Livingstone for his explosive innings against Chennai Super Kings. Livingston scored 60 runs in 32 balls against Chennai at the Brabourne Stadium on Sunday, with five fours and five sixes. He also hit the season’s longest six of 108 metres. Apart from batting, Livingston bowled two wickets for 25 runs in three overs. For his overall performance, Livingston was named Man of the Match. Punjab won for the second time, defeating Chennai by 54 runs, thanks to his innings. At the same time, Chennai is facing defeat in three consecutive matches for the first time in IPL history.
‘We were thinking we were 5-7 runs short, but we knew chasing 180 would not be easy, especially if we take wickets with the new ball, which is exactly what we did,’ Mayank said after the win against Chennai. By winning that part of the game, we were able to win the game. (to Livingston) Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, Everyone’s breath comes to a halt when he bats. Some of the shots he makes are incredible. Vaibhav used to work with us a few years ago.
Mayank also praised Jitesh Sharma, the wicketkeeper-batsman who made his Punjab Kings debut. Jitesh smashed Chennai for 26 runs in just 17 balls. The captain said, “He’s different, he’s young, and he’s got some good skills.” When Anil Bhai was with the Mumbai Indians, he saw him with Jitesh. He stated that we must bring this child with us. He has the best of intentions. His attitude is what stands out the most about him. You can tell they’re hungry and want something. He is adamant about playing tough and positive cricket.
