Yashasvi Jaiswal produces a direct hit to run out Faf du Plessis

39 runs come in the four overs after the PowerPlay as Royal Challengers Bangalore reached 101/2 at the halfway mark, and Glenn Maxwell has taken the lead, dispatching anything marginally loose into the crowd en route to a half-century. Faf du Plessis had been playing second fiddle, but scored briskly at the same time before he was run out by Yashasvi Jaiswal.

Yesterday, Punjab Kings beat the Mumbai Indians in a high-scoring affair at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. PBKS edged past the five-time champions by 13 runs, and jacked themselves up to the fifth position on the points table. The hosts won the toss and opted to bowl, and made a good fist of things to have Punjab Kings at 118/4 in 15 overs, but Sam Curran embarked on a six-hitting spree as they finished with a humongous 214/8. Thatโ€™s 96 runs in the final five overs.

Punjab Kings have nearly a week to rejoice, as they travel back to their home city, and face Lucknow Super Giants in Mohali on Friday, April 28.
