It was Punjab Kings’ game over the stands and the crowd in the match against CSK on Monday. The scintillating innings of the bowlers, as well as the batsmen of the PBKS team, was something that led the team to snatch victory from their rivals, “The CSKians”.

Punjab Kings won the match with Shikhar Dhawan’s 88 not out off 59 balls, while Bhanuka Rajapaksa scored 42 off 32 balls to help the PBKS team reach a good total of 187 for the loss of 4 wickets.. Liam Livingstone, wasn’t effective in this game as well and played innings of 19 runs and was dismissed by Mitchell Santner.The brilliant innings played by Shikhar was highly appreciated and he won the man of the match title for that particular match.

In response to the target set by the PBKS team. The CSK team put up their best performance with Ambati Rayudu and Ruturaj Gaikwad playing responsibly, scoring 78 off 39 balls and 30 off 27 balls respectively. And when these players were becoming a threat to the PBKS team, Kagiso Rabada came and dismissed Ambati Rayudu, who was playing dangerously and slowly taking his team to victory.

Arshdeep, on the other hand, also delivered some scintillating innings and took two wickets for his team especially in the death overs to help his team win. Responding to Arshdeep’s match-winning performance, Mayank who is the captain of the PBKS team came forward to praise the youngster and said,

“I thought Arsh bowled exceedingly well. I must credit him. Throughout the season, he’s stood up in tough moments and he’s bowled the tough overs. He’s always put his hand up and said ‘Give me the bowl’. So, he’s been great for us. Even Rabada was fantastic. To get (Gaikwad) and Rayudu at that time was very crucial. I can’t really pint point, but I would say these two with the ball really changed the game towards us”

Well, it was the day for “Dhawan’s” especially because at one end it was the batter Shikhar Dhawan and at the other end it was the Rishi Dhawan who caught not only attention from his teammate Rabada but also from fans all over.

This attention was due to his unusual looking face mask that he wore during this match. To make it precise this face protection mask was first introduced by an English player named as Warren Barnes you made use of this protective visor for him.

Secondly, it was worn by a player named “Andrew Ellis” from New Zealand, who also sported with this customized protective visor.

So, what is this protective visor or gear for?

“It is to protect the bowler from the fierce hit directly by the batsman”.

The protective gear that we are talking about here is a toughened glass-panelled material especially used by Blacksmiths.

The PBKS team on Friday will be facing their next opponents in the form of Lucknow Super Giants who are leading the tournament and will be hard to for the PBKS team to surpass.
