Punjab Kings Rewrite IPL History with Most 200+ Chases

Punjab Kings experienced a remarkable evening on Thursday, chasing down a daunting 200-run target to secure their second win in the ongoing 17th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Led by Shikhar Dhawan, the team found themselves in a precarious situation during the chase, but an unexpected hero emerged to turn the tide.

Shashank Singh, a 32-year-old player from Chhattisgarh, played a sensational unbeaten innings of 61 runs off just 29 balls, guiding Punjab Kings to a thrilling three-wicket victory. His exceptional performance not only sealed the win but also rejuvenated Punjab’s IPL 2024 campaign, which had suffered two consecutive losses. Singh’s stellar contribution earned him the prestigious Player of the Match (POTM) award.

The dramatic chase at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad marked the Punjab Kings’ sixth successful pursuit of a 200-plus target in IPL history, making them the team with the most such chases in the cash-rich league. Trailing behind are Mumbai Indians (MI), with five instances of chasing 200 or more, followed by Chennai Super Kings (CSK) with three such feats.

Punjab’s remarkable victory underscores their resilience and ability to deliver under pressure, setting the stage for an exhilarating season ahead in IPL 2024.
