Last Ball Drama in PBKS vs GT match – Hardik Pandya makes a big blunder

Today’s big match between Gujarat Titans and Punjab Kings had one of the most intriguing first innings end of all the matches that have been played so far in the tournament. The last over of the thrilling first innings was Bowled by Gujarat Titans captain Hardik Pandya himself and the ending of that over was completely messed up and the last ball drama is all that IPL fans are talking about on the internet right now.

In the match being played at the Brabourne Stadium, Gujarat Titans won the toss and opted to bowl first. It was the correct decision as we have seen in the tournament so far that the team that bowls first gets an unfair advantage when it comes to winning matches as the dew factor plays a big role in Mumbai and Pune.

However, Punjab Kings was spot on in the first innings and they were able to score a first innings total of 189 which is more than enough to win the match comfortably. Their huge total was courtesy of yet another brilliant knock by their Costliest player Liam Livingstone who had proven to be in great form lately. He scored 64 off 27 at a tremendous run rate of over 200 and he was the lone warrior of Punjab Kings.

Talking about the last over, GT captain Hardik Pandya himself came in to bowl and he conceded a total of 16 runs in the over and the 3 runs which he conceded in the last ball was also partly his fault as it could have been a run out. There were way too many misfields by GT and also Hardik Pandya hit the wicket with his body and thus missed an opportunity for a runout and hence have away 3 extra runs.
