With global tournaments hitting crucial stages and others nearing their close, our Punjab Kings' stars are primed for upcoming challenges.
These players have risen to the occasion, delivering performances that fans won't forget.
Sam Curran vs Manchester Originals - 1/31
Golden duck aside, Curran's ball game led Oval Invincibles to a Hundred victory. Posting a whopping 161 from 100 balls, Curran's team thrived, with his pivotal role in restricting the opponents evident. His 1/31 from 20 balls, including the prized wicket of Max Holden, spurred Oval Invincibles to claim their maiden The Hundred Men's title.
Sikandar Raza vs Trinbago Knight Riders - 2/31
Saint Lucia Kings' new skipper, Raza, showcased his prowess against Trinbago Knight Riders. Revving up after a modest start, he propelled the Kings forward with a solid 32 from 23 balls. But it was his bowling that stole the show. Dismissing powerhouse Kieron Pollard and former star Dwayne Bravo set the stage for the Kings' convincing win.
Jonny Bairstow vs Northern Superchargers - 44 (39)
Harry Brook's explosive 105 set a high target of 159 for Welsh Fire. Jonny Bairstow, alongside Eskinazi and Clarke, orchestrated a comfortable victory, though it fell short of finals qualification. Bairstow's 44 off 39 was crucial in their win against Northern Superchargers.
As these tournaments unfold, Punjab Kings' stars shine brightly, leaving their mark on the global stage.
