IPL 2024: Shimron Hetmyer Stars As RR Beat PBKS By Three Wickets In A Low-scoring Thriller

Maharaja Yadavindra Singh International Cricket: In a tricky time for Rajasthan Royals, Shimron Hetmyer ensured he went bang-bang in his unbeaten 27 off 10 balls as Rajasthan Royals beat Punjab Kings by three wickets to maintain their pole position in the points table via a low-scoring thriller at the Maharaja Yadavindra Singh International Cricket Stadium on Saturday evening.

After restricting PBKS to 147/8 in 20 overs, RR were in trouble when Hetmyer came in after Riyan Parag’s fall and saw Dhruv Jurel being dismissed as well. Under mounting pressure, Hetmyer, who barely got batting time in the season, smashed four and three sixes, including the winning shot, to get RR over the line with a ball to spare.

He was also helped by Rovman Powell making a vital five-ball 11 to give RR a narrow victory in yet another last-over encounter between the two teams.
