One of Punjab Kings’ fresh talents Jitesh Sharma finally got to show his batting talent as he slammed 30 off 15 balls to take Punjab Kings to 198/5 at the end of 20 overs.
PBKS captain Mayank Agarwal and his opening batter Shikhar Dhawan also slammed fifties to take team off to flying start.
However, the innings derailed midway through the innings but Jitesh and Shahrukh Khan made up for it via powerhitting in the death overs.
MI bowler Jaydev Unadkat had a horrid time with the ball in hand, as he was hit for 23 runs in an over, the 18th of the innings.
Twitter slammed Unadkat while hailing Jitesh. Check reactions below:
They can definitely play Riley Meredith in place of Unadkat. #MIvPBKS
